    One thought on “Abraham Allegiant”

    1. I would have given this book more stars but he is too graphic in his sexual acts descriptions. Yes, we get it, everyone was extremely sinful and gross but please don't put word images into our heads by telling us what they were doing. It was incredibly unnecessary and totally detracts from the story Which I really liked; luckily for him, the overall story is engaging enough to keep me reading but barely. Seriously, this is not for anyone under 18 and I can only hope the next books are not so gra [...]

    2. I gave this book 3 stars instead of 4 because while it was very entertaining & well written like the others in the series, it at times was just too graphic. I get that the author needed to explain the depravity of the times, which were obscene (it is partly telling the story of Sodom & Gommorah) but I do not need to hear that "Marduk took his arm out of Enki's anus" There was a point in the book where for after about 30 minutes of reading I realized that my face had been scrunched up in [...]

    3. When I was in college I worked at a grocery store, and occasionally stocked the frozen section. At that time, Kroger stocked "chicken rings" -- basically, pressed chicken formed into rings that you would fry and then eat, kind of like onion rings. I used to buy them every week, and every week I'd get sick. Not a little sick; stomach-clutchingly, gut-wrenchingly, god-awfully sick. Yet I still bought them, until I got better sense. These books are like those chicken rings. They're just awful: the [...]

    4. Fantastic readThe Author is amazing and explains his actions in the back of the book. I have read each book so far and I have truly enjoyed each. But, when you read these books PLEASE make sure you read his notes, etc. Do not let these books take place of your reading and studying the Bible. But, these books can enlighten you on factual information that you can learn to fill in the blanks of the Bible.

    5. Very disappointedI started reading this series to get a different, but still biblical view on past events. The earlier books were very entertaining. This one was entertaining, but too much sex and vulgarity. Also I am growing bored with the repeated attempts at pushing the liberal talking points throughout this series. Taking quotes directly from the DNC talking points. "Never let a good crisis go to waste", the one percent living in the backs of the 99%. I may not finish the series of this gets [...]

    6. To begin this review, I want to be honest in saying that I have not even finished reading the book yet. Normally I would not review anything without completing the story. But I felt compelled to jump on here just to get other peoples opinions and read some of the other reviews to see if people were feeling the same as I was. Not surprisingly, more than a handful of people share my opinion. I am a big fan of Brian Godawa's Nephilim series, and have thoroughly enjoyed reading the series thus far. [...]

    7. Another awesome installment in Brian Godawa's Biblical epic. Godawa does a great job at pooling together several extra-biblical sources as well as the Bible's telling of the life of Abraham. Picking up where Gilgamesh Immortal left off, we begin with the efforts of King Nimrod to control the world through the help of watcher angels (gods) and Terah, Abram's father. Much of the story sticks very close to the events portrayed in the ancient Book of Jasher. The story of Abram's birth, his being sec [...]

    8. I really enjoy this series and I love the visuals, most of the time. I cannot however give this book five stars. Why you ask? The sexual depravity of the evil characters was too graphic and it at times spoiled the story. The author makes it clear how bad these guys are with a lot of detail. I did not think it was necessary after the first few instances, but do not shy away from this series it presents an amazing view of the Biblical story that makes the story come alive. It is just not for those [...]

    9. Brian Godawa is without doubt one of the most amazing storytellers of our time. This is the 4th book in The Chronicles of the Nephilim series. This is not like any Bible story you have ever read. It has extreme amounts of violence, so it is definitely not for everyone. But this book is every bit is good as the rest of the series.

    10. Enjoying this seriesInteresting take on stories we have studied just a bit and often neglect in today's rush to the New Testament. He takes you on a fast, fun, trip filled with real people, makes you wonder maybe.

    11. Thrilling to read Brian Godawa continues to tantalize the imagination with this installment of the Nephilim Chronicles. Fantastically written and extremely thought provokingis series has been full of excitement and I cannot wait to start the next book in the series

    12. I have loved this series. Although, I did not like Abraham Allegiant nearly as much as the first three books.

    13. A good use of Jewish sources. An entertaining retelling of the story of Abraham. See APPENDIX OF EACH BOOK IN THE SERIES.
