Guest post by Dina Rae, author of Halo of Nephilim
Weâ€™ve all heard about UFO sightings, alien abductions, burnt crop fields, and cattle mutilations. Roswell, New Mexico and Area 54 are the meccas of American X-files. Bright discs are seen everywhere around the world. What does the Bible have to say about extra-terrestrials? Were things so different three thousand years ago? Or are we just using a different vernacular?
Anyone who has ever picked up the Bible knows the story of Noah and the ark. God chose him and his family because they were â€˜pureâ€™ (Genesis). The question is pure heart or pure bloodline? Angels mated with women back in those days, producing a half breed called nephilim. These beings were described as giants with superhuman powers. Could the nephilim be an old version of modern day aliens of a mixed race?
Angels and aliens are always described as glowing with light. Ezekiel, an Old Testament prophet, vividly describes a spaceship in his book. Enochâ€™s writings about angels were controversial enough to be edited out of the Bible. More of his writings were found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. He regularly communicated with angels and ascended up to Heaven to speak with God on behalf of their shortcomings. Possible abduction?
Â Book description:
Halo of Nephilim is a very engaging biblical fiction, if I may call it that. Filled with fantasy and vivid imagination, the author will whisk you away into a world that you can never imagine. It’s been awhile since I’ve read such a riveting story and I couldn’t help but feel drawn to the characters in the story. Very well written and it’s definitely a keeper. Very fast-paced and will keep you flipping the pages. I find the book very difficult to put down and read it twice in one sitting.
Highly recommended for those who loves a good fantasy read or for those who are looking for a short escapism. I easily rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
Can a fallen angel, his band of broken souls, and his nephilim children change the world? Armaros the Cursed, Satanâ€™s favorite of the Fallen, falls once again after breaking the rules. Fearing an eternity of punishment, he desperately attempts to save himself by sending a bird to his island. The SOS message is received by his beloved congregation. They prepare the great Armarosâ€™ kingdom for his return. Can his loyal worshipers rescue him from the pit?
Halo of the Nephilim is the sequel to Halo of the Damned. The story begins with Armarosâ€™ arrest. Reporters are duped into believing he was gunned down while awaiting trial. Declared dead, his only known surviving daughter, Joanna Easterhouse, proves her relation and inherits everything. She catapults her career from an entry-level advertising assistant to the head of Armarosâ€™ advertising empire. Life couldnâ€™t be better: a windfall inheritance, real power within a major industry, a loving relationship with a former demon, and a baby on the way. She should be on top of the world, but knows everything good must come to an end.
Joannaâ€™s sister, Kim Easterhouse, becomes Kim Slattery after marrying Sean, her dead motherâ€™s probate lawyer. Joanna generously includes them as key players in her advertising chain. They, too, have much to smile about, but a string of events leads them back to old family secrets. Wickedness looms over the Easterhouse family once more, forcing them into an unlikely showdown filled with page-turning excitement. Like Halo of the Damned, Halo of the Nephilim is filled with conspiracy and angel lore taken directly from scripture and other ancient writings. Nephilim meander the earth in confusion, constantly questioning who they are and where they stand in terms of good and evil. More mind control themes top off this tale of doom.
