Dune meets Star Wars in this galaxy-crossing Christian sci-fi tale!

Dakhar knows his place in life. But the God of his ancestors has a different plan for him.

For generations his people have fought an endless battle with the cursed Nephilim, and Dakhar followed in his father’s footsteps and went off to war. All he found there was horror and death. He is unclean, and unworthy of the honor his people want to grant him.

But his bravery has won him command of the Royal Guard, and the sacred duty of protecting the King and his family. The King who rules by divine right, and receives council directly from an Angel. Dakhar doesn’t deserve this life, but he will do his duty anyway.

Then Tasia, the lovely young Princess he’s honor-bound to protect is kidnapped and whisked offworld. Dakhar will tear apart the galaxy to find her, no matter the cost.

Can he find Tasia before it is too late? Will he forgive himself and become the man he’s meant to be?

And what orders will the Angel of their people have for a sinner like him?

    If you’ve tuned into the live stream last week, you know everything about this book, and you have already bought it, I’m sure.

    For those of you who weren’t kicking around then, let’s have a review.

    Ann Margaret Lewis is the author of two great Sherlock Holmes novels– Murder in the Vatican and The Watson Chronicles. If you haven’t read them, add them to your to be read pile.

    However, Ann has also written books on Star Wars. So of course she would get into space opera.

    Nephilim: Corruption is book one of the Warrior of the Kizan series. If you’re wondering what a Kizan is, it’s a space highlander (the Scotsmen, not the immortals). The warrior in particular is Dahkar, and he’s got the sword to prove it.

    The premise is relatively simple: the Nephilim of the Bible were largely wiped out by the flood. Those who were Saved were taken to another planet for the safety of all concerned. The Saved were deemed Emunim. Fast forward a few thousand years, and they’ve grown into a flourishing society. The only real problem are the fallen among them–the Nephilim, whose ole goal is to make more Nephilim and spread their corruption.

    After a decade in military service, Dahkar’s most recent mission with SpecOps has bagged the leader of the Nephilim. It’s gained him a promotion to lead the palace guard.

    But before Dahkar can even officially transfer to the palace, Princess Tasia is kidnapped and taken offworld. But she isn’t taken to the Nephilim homeworld. She’s taken to the origin point of their entire people.

    The Princess has been taken to Earth.

    This is the third time (and second title) I’ve read this book. Which makes it one of the few books I’ve read more than once–including Lord of the Rings, Heir to the Empire, Princess of Wands, and Proven Guilty.

    So yes, it’s good. I’ll say it’s five star good, adding for my bias. The nice thing about Nephilim: Corruption is that it’s relatively straightforward. Once the reader gets into the world (and if you’re not fully settled in by the end of chapter two, I’ll be surprised) it’s smooth sailing all the way. The characters are all easily and quickly set up, and the plot gets underway as soon as possible. Everyone has a character arc and character development. Even the very minor bit players among the supporting cast.

    The world building is smart and easy, with echoes of CS Lewis’ Science Fiction Trilogy (mostly Out of the Silent Planet).

    Short version: it’s fun, buy it.

    Lewis’s book is a really great space opera. It has all of the expected elements that make for a really engaging story with two additional elements that take it to another level.

    1) The characters are well enough developed that the tone of the whole story changes based on which character is in focus.
    2) There are elements of genuine beauty that surpass anything that one could reasonable expect in a space opera. These are often related to the the Catholic sacraments which occur naturally to the fabric of the story and have the kind of impact that brings out their inherent drama.

    Based on these elements, I give it 5 stars as a space opera.

    But one drawback of including such truly great elements is that the book should not be judged strictly as a space opera, but also as literature. In that regard the book falls a little short. I would give it 3.5 stars if it were to be judged on the same scale as Walter Scott’s The Talisman. Some of the characters perspectives (such as Saul’s) are juvenile, and so the writing becomes a bit juvenile. Some of the elements don’t blend together perfectly, and instead float around in the story as undigested chucks (such as the engineering details about the translation device).

    I look forward to reading the next book in the series, and will probably go back and read Lewis’s earlier works.

    I loved this book. It has some of that 70s- 80s feel – Star Wars, King Arthur, and a bit of that goofy earth kid who was in so many space movies. The pay offs are worth waiting for, it has a good emotional tie up. Yes, it hangs you for the sequel, but you knew that was coming from the title. I Absolutely recommend this book.
