Overview

Thousands of years before the Cylons destroyed the Twelve Colonies and the Battlestar Galactica led a ragtag fleet to Earth, the Lords of Kobol lived among mankind in peace and harmony. Zeus, Hera, Apollo, Athena, Ares ... the gods provided and the people worshipped. But who or what were they?

Humanity has reached the pinnacle of their civilization, thanks to the Lords. Once they've reached the top, what is next? After three millennia, are there some subjects eager to be free of the Pantheon's rule? Are the Olympian overseers weary? Are there others who deny the gods' divinity in the first place?

Partake in the fruits of Utopia and observe Kobol at its peak. See Pythia encounter divine inspiration. Watch as the Thirteenth Tribe is born. Gaze upon the seeds being sown for mankind's eventual departure from paradise ...

Fans of "Battlestar Galactica" and "Caprica" can't miss the first book in a trilogy detailing the ancient history of the shows we love. There is a Plan and questions will be answered.

I am fan of BSG so I enjoyed reading of this book. It seems that author took his time and studied BSG universe and created very nice plot. Connection made to BSG and Caprica is well done. But anyway I believe for people not watching TV series, this wouldn't be enjoyable book. Sure it would be written better, there were places where story was bad enough, so 3 stars. I am gonna read next one.

The book had a slow start but quickly picked up the pace. It kept my interst throughout and can't wait to read book 2. I believe that you will get more out of this book if you have seen Battlestar Galactica.

First: I am a fan of the BSG series (though, I didn't see much of Caprica). The Lords of Kobol books were quite fun reading -- the tie-ins with Greek mythology were very clever and well-done. The story itself provided a very readable back-story to the BSG (and Caprica) television series. Highly recommended for BSG fans -- those not familiar with BSG may find themselves scratching their heads in bewilderment at times, as well as miss some fantastic tie-ins with the show. And there's still some unanswered questions at the end of book 3...

Im not a fan of the new BSG tv show but I am def a fan now of THIS book series. When I first started reading I thought maybe this isnt for me...yeah right. Now Im off to book 2! Talk about an early Christmas present! Kudos and thanks to the author for making such great writing, and for offering it free!

Great fan fiction providing a plausible back story to the BSG Kobolian gods, and the legendary Thirteenth Tribe. It meshes well with the established story, though some parts were spotty, such as the origin of the gods, and who the humans were on Kobol before the gods came on scene. Perhaps that will be covered later? Looking forward to the next in the series.

If you are a fan of the "BSG" franchise, then the whole trilogy will appeal to you! I had a quiet winter break and delved into all 4 over break form college and finished them all. Even without a background of "BSG" knowledge, if you have a knowledge of Greek and Roman political and religious structure, you should also find these books very entertaining!

Im as big a fan of Lords of Kobol as i am of BSG. Well done. Look for my upcoming sci fi novel: A Pawn For The Havest by Jason Gillum. Time travel....super powers....and swordplay. Coming soon.

Please dismiss my first rating. The story line is a little bit confusing because the chapters are named for all the greek gods, but the idea behind the story is good.
