***Special thanks to Kyle Kimbrough for sending me a review copy.***

Author, artist, woodworker, and world traveler currently thrives in Austin, Texas with his beautiful wife Mandy and daughter Zoё Isabel who has recently joined us in this world. His plethora of numinous literary inspirations are often stirred by being in nature – hiking, camping, fishing, spelunking, rock climbing, and, of course, reveling in the unadulterated, wall-less freedom of riding his motorcycle through the hill country.

Every legend, good or evil, is birthed from truth.
In the ancient, mystic times before the great flood, entities from the spirit realm called Watchers were sent into the world of mortals to help and teach mankind. But falling prey to the lures of Earth’s lusts and greed, they forsook their edict. The Watcher’s half-angel offspring mature to be giants – warriors, tyrannically oppressing the free people of the epoch.

Young, free-spirited Noah ventures to save a group of women abducted during a raid on a peaceful Freeland village. What is meant to be a simple rescue cascades into a bloody incident, which in turn launches Noah into an epic adventure of peril, love, and spiritual intrigue.

Meanwhile, the turbulent paths of a rogue Watcher, young outcast, unpredictable loner, begrudged hunter, and beautiful escapee tumultuously entwine. Unified destinies clash into a perilous journey and struggle against time.

Can they stop the powerful Watchers, conspiring with the aged and eccentric Lord Cain, from grasping the coveted key to eternal power?

Join one of the greatest legends in history in this epic tale – a fight for freedom against the tyranny of a seemingly unstoppable darkness in book one of the Ancient Trilogy.

My Review:

If you are interested in both fantasy and Christian based books, I think this story will appeal to you.

A fictional account of the little known “Nephilim” written about in the Old Testament, with text coming from the Apocrypha is a change from the sort of Christian Fantasy books that I have read up to this point. 

K.T. Kimbrough has woven an engaging, immersing and entertaining story.  It is definitely a page turner and I’m looking forward to the books that follow in this trilogy.

One does need to be self-aware not to become too absorbed in tracking down the  ‘history’ of the characters represented; as God obviously could have elaborated more on this race in the Bible, but chose not to reveal to us anymore than He did.
