Publisher's Summary

The epic journey of the greatest king who sought eternal life after the Flood. 

There is a book in the Bible where God's name is nowhere to be found: Esther. Some say it was because God withheld his presence for a time, others say he was secretly working behind the scenes to accomplish his purposes. There was another time that God was hidden: In the period after the Great Flood before Abraham. Gilgamesh Immortal is a story of that time period. 

Gilgamesh Immortal tells a tale of the greatest king of ancient Mesopotamia shortly after the Flood, the mighty ruler Gilgamesh, king of Uruk. He is a giant, born of god and man who oppresses his people for his own power and glory. 

But when a Wild Man named Enkidu comes to town he is the only one mighty enough to stand up to Gilgamesh and put him in his place. Enkidu's simple but strong character impresses Gilgamesh and the two become best of friends. But Gilgamesh longs for immortality, so they embark on a quest for eternal life that takes them from a giant's forest, to the mountain of the gods, to the Path of the Sun in the Underworld, and ultimately to a distant magical island to find the one man granted divine favor during the flood: Noah. 

Gilgamesh Immortal is an adaptation of the oldest written hero story in history. And yet it is timeless in its universal themes of friendship, courage, purpose, the pursuit of immortality and the meaning of life. Chronicles of the Nephilim is written in the mythic genre of The Lord of the Rings and Narnia, blending fantasy and mythopoeia with history to retell the Biblical narrative with a fresh perspective, while staying true to the original spirit of the story.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Don't Even Bother

It's like a badly written fanfiction by a 13-year-old girl who thinks she's a Biblical scholar. And it's written by a dude.

What really got me was the author's claim that he didn't deviate from the Gilgamesh epic very much. Except he deviates from it a lot. There's so many dissimilarities between this book and the original epic, that I can't list them all here.

My advice; go read a modern translation of the original epic.
