Chronicles of the Nephilim is a saga that charts the rise and fall of the Nephilim and just what their place is in the evil plans of the fallen Sons of God called, “The Watchers.” These rogue members of God’s divine council will stop at nothing to win their war as the Seed of the Serpent against the Seed of Eve.
Book 1, Noah Primeval, reveals the hero’s journey of Noah that leads to God’s second act of judgment against this diabolical plan of the Watchers: The Deluge.
The Lost Book 2, Enoch Primordial, is a prequel to Noah Primeval that tells the forgotten story of the original descent of the Watchers on Mount Hermon and their introduction of the Nephilim into the created order. Enoch, is God’s man to call down judgment on the Watchers and their giant progeny, the Nephilim.
Book 3, Gilgamesh Immortal, is about the giant king Gilgamesh of Uruk in Mesopotamia after the Flood. Two thirds god and one third man, this mighty warrior embarks on an epic journey to find immortality with his friend and Right Hand, Enkidu, the “wild-born” of the steppe. His quest leads him to Noah in a faraway land, but what he discovers will change history forever.
Book 4, Abraham Allegiant, tells the story of the Watchers inheriting the nations and the rebirth of the Nephilim and their next battle in the war of the seed of the Serpent against the seed of Eve. Be on the lookout for Nimrod, the builder of the Tower of Babel and his diabolical minions.
Book 5, Joshua Triumphant, is the tale of Joshua’s campaign to eradicate the Nephilim from their infestation of ancient Canaan. Can the mighty Og of Bashan, the last of the giant Rephaim, be defeated?
Book 6, David Ascendant, tells the story of how David and his Mighty Men overcame the last of the Anakim giants left in Gaza, Ashdod, and Gath, home of the monstrous Goliath and his gargantuan brothers.
Or is that the end of their story?
ENDORSEMENTS for the series
“Chronicles of the Nephilim represents the new generation in novel writing. It’s compact, concise, and fast paced. Intelligent yet entertaining. Godawa brings a screenwriter’s sensibilities to the material that will draw in a postmodern audience that prefers books that read like movies.”
– Jack Hafer, Chair, Cinema and Media Arts, Biola University; Producer, To End All Wars
“Godawa is a mind blowing, theologically interesting, adventurous storyteller. Enoch Primordial is an imaginative tale that respects and loves the book of Genesis. It is set in the distant past, yet kicks pagan modernity in the crotch. Chronicles of the Nephilim is a saga that deserves our attention!”
– Douglas TenNapel, creator of Earthworm Jim, The Neverhood, Creature Tech and Ghostopolis
“Enoch Primordial is an entertaining, effective antidote to the pop-culture contagion of ancient alien astronauts. Godawa picks up where he left off on the wild mythopoeic journey he began in Noah Primeval. He skillfully transforms the mild-mannered, stoic biblical characters of our churched imagination into epic warriors. Long live Enoch the giant killer! Despite the liberties taken in his fantasy, the author weaves a high regard for the Bible with a subversive appreciation of ancient Mesopotamia and its mythology. This second volume to the Chronicles of the Nephilim make it the reader’s choice for intelligent, theologically-informed fantasy.”

“Wow! Are you kidding me? It’s almost impossible to find page-turning fiction that is also scholarly, thought-provoking, and wildly entertaining. Looks like Brian Godawa has done it again — an amazing mix of imagination plus deep reverence for the ancient Scriptures.”
– Adam Christing, Founder, Clean Comedians, Writer/Director Change Your Life! and A Mormon President
“It’s a fresh and exciting take on a story we think we know. Godawa’s skill as a scriptwriter is evident; the novel unfolds like scenes on a big screen, and there are moments you will recognize as the place you’d stand and cheer in a movie theater.”
– Derek Gilbert, author, The God Conspiracy, Host of A View From The Bunker Podcast
“Wizard schools and teen vampires are child’s play. This is the origin of sorcery and vampire tales. Noah Primeval will keep you on the edge of your seat with its primal struggle of good and evil. Supernatural fiction, fantasy, and Biblical speculation all as a cinematic novel. It reads like a blockbuster movie!”
– Ralph Winter, Producer X-Men, Planet of the Apes
“Imaginative yet well-researched. As Biblical scholar, I have a great appreciation for imagination in religious storytelling of the past. I was enthralled with Godawa’s grasp of the Mesopotamian world and enchanted with his modern adaptation of antiquity into an entertaining action fantasy. Such a fictional adaptation may be a big problem from some religious believers with strict views of the Bible, but in my book, Godawa brings to the surface the drama of the original story. He gives to us the Noah of the Bible in a fresh and provocative way.”

“Anyone who has read the Lord of the Rings trilogy has silently mused about how fantastic it would be if it were all real—a place on earth that transcended our own mundane reality, a time when the unseen world was tangible. Noah Primeval made me stop wishing and start believing. Brian Godawa re-imagines the supernatural storyline of the Biblical Noah blended with Mesopotamian epics. The result is a stirring tale of gods and men that confronts us with biblical reality through mythical fantasy. Noah Primeval is what Tolkien called “sanctifying myth” that we need in our own place and time.”
– Michael S. Heiser, PhD, Hebrew and Semitic Languages; Academic Editor, Logos Bible Software
“Brian Godawa’s imagination is incredible. When he writes, he conjures up worlds that make you re-think what’s possible. Noah Primeval is a fascinating new take on an ancient story that makes the word ‘epic’ seem far too small. Pick up the book, but don’t expect to put it down until you’re finished.”
