FANTASY NOVELS

LOST CIVILIZATIONS

Giants (Book 1)

‚ÄčThe Nephilim—the sons of fallen angels—have a plan: find ancient, powerful weapons, storm Eden, defeat the guardian Cherub with his flaming sword and eat from the Tree of Life. Then they can rule the Earth as gods.

Gaining such weapons is highly dangerous, however. They will need ensorcelled humans to trip primeval traps for them, dying in their place.

Young Joash, a freed slave, knows nothing about these things. He trains to become a charioteer like the champion Herrek who freed him from bondage. But when Herrek’s band falls under a Nephilim spell, Joash will have to find the courage and wisdom to be like the mouse that freed a netted lion and save his newfound family and friends from a hideous and ancient evil.

GIANTS is the start of the Lost Civilizations Series that tells of the war between Nephilim and men in the days before the oceans overran the Pre-Cataclysmic World.

Eden (Book 3)

Tarag of the Sabertooths and the giant Mimir the Wise are searching for Eden. They have found and practiced with ancient weapons, hoping to slay the guardian of the East Gate so they may eat from the Tree of Life and rule the Earth as gods.


Lord Uriah pursues the Nephilim with a hardy band of warriors. It’s unlikely he can defeat the evil champions, but he has to try before they can eat the fruit and become invincible.

Joash is Mimir’s prisoner. The young man is a seraph with an inner fire that can resist Nephilim sorcery. Mimir has found a way to use that in Joash to help them defeat the holy guardian of Eden.

Now, it’s up to Joash to risk everything to stop them. Because if Tarag and Mimir can kill Eden’s guardian, the Nephilim will begin a rule of demonic evil throughout the Earth that will never end.

EDEN is the third book of the Lost Civilization Series that chronicles the war between men and Nephilim in the days before the oceans overran the Pre-Cataclysmic World.

Behemoth (Book 5)

Gog the ruler of Shamgar wants vengeance on the world and against Lod who blinded him. Thus, he sends his son Dagon to the Sea of Nur to find and tame the fabled behemoth, bidding him to bring it back to Shamgar. With the behemoth, Gog will crush his many enemies.


Lod is a white-bearded swordsman with burning blue eyes, his frame a twisted mass of muscle from twenty long years at the slave oar. He is driven by his visions, considering himself the blade of Elohim, and he has sworn to stop Dagon.

But none of them knows that on the Isle of the Behemoth is a stolen flame of Heaven, changing everything by its otherworldly presence.

Dagon and Lod race to their fates, each certain that he will be victorious.

BEHEMOTH is the fifth book of the Lost Civilization Series that chronicles the war between men and Nephilim in the days before the oceans overran the Pre-Cataclysmic World.

Lod the Galley Slave (Book 7)

Lod the fanatical pit slave ranges the Pre-Cataclysmic Earth to confront the Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels.

They have supernatural size, strength and mystic powers. He has a sword, a knife or at times merely a fist. But in him burns visions from Elohim, giving him the courage to rise up and fight the invincible.

He began in the canals of Shamgar, trolling the waters as bait for the giant rats. Years later, he toiled in the galleys of Poseidonis, a chained beast rowing to face the dreaded fire ships that always destroyed their foes.

Lod faced the duel of his life on the Isle of the Dead, assassin’s attacks and the heart-freezing terror of the kraken.

Heroic fantasy’s mightiest warrior storms his way through five thrilling tales from prehistoric times.

Leviathan (Book 2)

Tarag of the Sabertooths and the giant Mimir the Wise have raided an ancient crypt for weapons capable of slaying angels. They have a bold plan to storm Eden, kill the guardian who wields the flaming sword and eat from the Tree of Life so they can become immortal.

Yet, there is a group of humans who escaped from them on the shores of Giant Land. Those people must never reach land to warn others. Thus, the Nephilim practice an ancient spell to summon a creature from the depths to sink the ships that carry Joash, Herrek, Adah and Lord Uriah.

This time, the heroes from Elon and Poseidonis are certainly doomed. For what can stand against the power and spells of the sons of angels?

LEVIATHAN is the second book of the Lost Civilization Series that chronicles the war between men and Nephilim in the days before the oceans overran the Pre-Cataclysmic World.

Gog (Book 4)
