Overview

Following the exodus of the Thirteenth Tribe and the dissolution of the Olympic Council as depicted in "Book One: Apotheosis," "Book Two: Descent" finds the gods scattered about Kobol. Apollo, though, is urged to confide in one man the true story of the Pantheon.

You now know what the Lords of Kobol are. Prepare to learn whence they came. How did they gain dominion over mankind? In "Book One," the words "Draco" and "Prometheus" are cursed whispers from the past. Who were the Draco? What did Prometheus do? And what of "The One?" Where does "it" fit into all of this?

See the gathering of the Twelve Tribes under Mount Olympus. Watch as the Great Flood nearly wipes out the gods' early followers. Behold the Lords of Kobol, hefting great weapons and arrayed in gleaming armor, take to the battlefield against their enemies. Gaze upon the seeds being sown for mankind's eventual departure from paradise ...

If "Book One: Apotheosis" was a slow-burn introduction to this world, the continuation of the story from "Battlestar Galactica" and "Caprica"'s distant past is an emotional and action-packed roller coaster ride. There is a Plan and questions will be answered.

Pretty good fan fiction about the BSG universe. It paid out some more details hinted at in the first book, especially about the origin of the Olympians. Truly what happened before will happen again.

I have read all the books in this series and it put to paper thoughts I already had in my mind. If you liked Battlestar Galactic you will love these books. Actually read this one last read the 3 and 4 book before the reread the 3 rd book . Kudo's to the author and think they should make this a movie or a series. it is a must read. Penny

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!

I have enjoyed books 1,2 & 3. I wish these had been made into a television series before the Galactica series.

Not as good as book 1, but still interesting to see the back history.

Story Gets Deeper 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.

I'd give it six stars if I could, but I already gave Book 1 five stars. Big flashback to the begining of the gods reign over Kobol and it's filled with scheming by Prometheus against Zeus, a gut-wrenching scene and a tremendous battle scene. I will say I was glad the author included the map.

The same like first book... I think book was overall better than first, except of ending. End was like, bum - the end - that's all, so kinda disappointed. I am going to read next book. But still as before, if you are not fan of BSG, this book is probably not for you. I am gonna give 4 stars, one more than for first book. I enjoyed the way author connected this 2 books, going back to past and explaining some stuff from "future" [i mean book one]. It reminded me a little bit style of BSG, where some stuff was always explained later, so making it more interesting. Let's hope other books in this series gonna be at least that good too.

Very cool book. Follows up on Book One nicely and gives a lot of background to the gods plus awesome fight scenes. Great drama, too, with Zeus and Prometheus.
