Review - Guardians of Eden by Graham Carter

A thousand years have passed since Adam and Eve were cast from the Garden of Eden. Their descendants have multiplied and spread across the face of the planet. In recent times rumours have begun to spread regarding a strange race of beings, the Nephilim, said to be the giant offspring of unholy alliances between the fallen sons of God and women of great beauty.

Life in Thalan’s tiny, seaside village seems a world away from such events until the day servants of a Nephilim king arrive looking for him. Could it be that seventeen year-old Thalan holds the key to the downfall of these powerful giants? And what is the significance of the ancient prophecy about the seed of Eve crushing the serpent’s head? The answers lie in a quest to find the legendary Garden of Eden and the fabled Tree of Life that stands in its midst. But can Thalan and his brother survive the hostile journey to the other side of the world to find out?

Review -- What a great hero's tale. Biblical based fiction can be fun to read. A book about giants, witches, occult and mythical beasts, there is a lot to draw from and Carter does. I really enjoyed the mystery behind the origin of Thalan and the mystery of the prophecy he chases.

Huge battles between good and evil with characters that rival any  from Lord of the Rings. It is not preachy and can be enjoyed by all. Pick it up and enjoy this adventure.
