{August 29, 2011}   {Review} Nephilim: Genesis of Evil by Renee Pawlish

From Goodreads:  A dark power described in Genesis revisits the small mountain town of Taylor Crossing. After witnessing an evil presence in New York City, Rory Callahan comes out West in search of answers, and finds a town succumbing to supernatural forces. Now, an evil prophesy may be fulfilled by the Nephilim.


Pawlish has created a wonderful story that will pull readers in from the very beginning.  The Nephilim, children of fallen angles and mortals, have resurfaced in the small town of Taylor Crossing, and Rory’s curiosity lands him in the middle of an epic battle within the town.  Watching the story unfold was amazing, and I really came to love the characters, especially Rory as he pieced together the background of the town and realized what the Nephilim truly were.

I really enjoyed this book, especially since I’d never heard the term Nephilim before.  It turns out that I’ve been reading a lot of books about the Nephilim lately and just didn’t know it.  I am thankful that Pawlish presents them in such a way that I now truly understand what they are, and realizing that the Nephilim are actually mentioned in Genesis chapter 6 was a jolting experience, making this novel all the more scary as it unfolded.  Pawlish is a wonderful storyteller, weaving the novel together through both past and present events, masterfully revealing the plot twists and turns.   The mystery and suspense of the novel kept me on edge as I read and I highly suggest those interested in fallen angels read this novel.  Three and a half stars!

I received a copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.
