    One thought on “Age of Eve: Return of the Nephilim”

    1. By no means am I calling this the Bible, but if you find some of the stories in the Bible fascinating, you’ll be riveted by this book’s choice of other-worldly beings. The Nephilim, according to the book of Genesis, were the offspring of the “sons of God” and “daughters of men.” I remember reading that a long time ago, but didn’t know what it meant. Now I do—these creatures have been around since the dawn of time, and their influence on humanity is all-encompassing. Somehow, Age [...]

    2. Thanks to NetGalley, I was able to get this as an advanced copy. After reading the synopsis, I was pretty excited to start reading the story of Eve. But now, let me just say, I think I'd rather have spent the last few hours gouging my eyeballs out with a spoon. I am more than disappointed in this storyI was bored to tears, found my mind wandering, and completely dazed and confused - and not in a good way.The premise of the story seemed pretty good. Eve works for a Southern magazine and attends a [...]

    3. I was unsatisfied with the story from the very beginning but decided to give it a fair chance as i received this ARC for a honest review and felt it wouldn't be right to give up.But some things just aren't worth it so finally gave up after 20%.Considering that a great pile of books are w8ing for me to read i decided this was just not worth my time - as i obviously didn't enjoy reading it.There are many things wrong in this story,starting with the writing,the plot,the charactersThe story is shall [...]

    4. Way too many descriptors, that were clunky. The sentence structure is crap. Pratt seems to think that every tree needs a poetic turn of words, that every sunny day should be populated my winsome clouds and flocks of snowy egrets. I could not finish this book, as the writing is abysmal.

    5. Age of Eve Return of the NephilimD.M PrattBroadthinkPub Date Jan 16 2013Set in New Orleans, Age of Eve is an emotional story of love threatened by the return of creatures first described in ancient Hebrew and Christian texts as the Nephilim or “fallen Sons of God.”Eve Dowling, a talented writer for a successful magazine that covers New Orleans society events, is leading an exciting life filled with friends, family and work–until it is turned upside down by a fateful encounter with a stunni [...]

    6. I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.One thing I can’t stand is not finishing a book, and to be honest my OCD will probably catch up and I will try finishing it again at a later date. I really wanted to enjoy this book, it held a lot of promise with being an erotic paranormal romance about nephilim. There are a lot of good reviews for this story as well as a lot that has held the same opinion as me, so I always encourage a reader to try a book for themselves because not eve [...]

    7. Overall I liked the book although it was slow in parts. I'm curious to see what happens in the next book.

    8. Got this on Net Galley. I love the combination of sci fi and romance. I had heard the word Nephilim but didn't remember exactly what they were. she's created an interesting world.

    9. Age of Eve Return of the Nephilim D.M PrattC supplied by netgalleyI love books that have a mix of romance and the supernatural/paranormal so this book sounded one I'd enjoy. I was expecting something like the wonderful and mysterious Fairwick Chronicles – Carol Goodman, or the All Souls Trilogy – Deborah Harkness.It seemed really slow to start though :( Its beautifully written, incredibly descriptive about the area and surroundings, and lots of historical facts about the people and region th [...]

    10. All reviews are located on Slave to BooksI don't even know where to begin with this book. I am going to state right now I couldn't finish this book. It was ridiculous and not in a good way. I love ridiculousness usually. However, I just was constantly going "What the hell?" throughout this book.The book definitely was in need of a different/better editor. I can promise you if you cut most of the UNNECESSARY detail you would lost at least 50-75 if not more pages. I'm sorry but I don't care about [...]

    11. The premise for this book was unlike any I had encountered before, so I was excited to be offered the title through NetGalley. Set in New Orleans, the beautifully descriptive prose does manage to bring the city to light, and there are several passages that are extremely well written and loaded with detail. Unfortunately, the story also is bogged down by this same descriptive prose, several passages are overly wordy and serve only to distract from the plot and story arc. Which is really a sad mom [...]

    13. Overall I really liked this book, butme parts of the story didn't make much sense to me. For instance, what woman in her right mind wakes up naked in a garden with no memory of what happened to her, and immediately searches for a man that may or may not have done things to you. This was the part that left me in awe and not in a good way. I did enjoy learning about Nephilim and what they actually were, and the myths and stories behind them. The book was very descriptive and engaging at times, whi [...]

    15. I received this novel from NetGalley.This fantastical novel starts off slow and stiff, with the characters seeming boring, cliche and shallow. And it doesn't really move far from there. The sex scenes are graphic and a little too far fetched even for a fantasy novel. Some if it is highly disturbing.The novel's saving grace is the folk lore and myth elements. these are outstanding and deep. This was a decent novel, one that had to be reread for the full potential to be uncovered. A simple and goo [...]
