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 of Eve is able to take that complicated idea and use it as a centerpiece for a riveting romantic thriller. This may be a work of fiction, but a lot of it felt all too real.
