Overview

Who are the Semyaz?

In the aftermath of the Family Wars, the Semyaz arrive from unknown lands with a message of peace and hope. Their advanced technology and wisdom helps to rebuild the fallen cities, and their teachings that all people are Children of the Light promises to ensure that such horrific wars are a thing of the past.

But there are those who don't trust their motives-or their stated promise to improve the human race. Are the Semyaz altruistic benefactors, or do they represent the ultimate enslavement-or even eradication-of humanity as we know it?

I had been looking forward to this book ever since I read his first novel, "The Days of Peleg". When he released the first few chapters, I knew it was going to be another great read! The Days of Lamech is essentially a fictionalized account of Genesis 5-6, but with a number of interesting sci-fi twists such as the Power Houses (wireless electricity generating towers built into huge pyramids) to the massive rail-gun and the underground laboratories and genetic experiments of the Semyaz. The book has a fast-paced, action-filled plot in which the young, head-strong Lamech is recruited by an underground resistance to collect information on the strange Semyaz race. There is a very sinister tone throughout the story that grows progressively darker as the resistance learns more about who the Semyaz really are, and what their ultimate goal for humanity is. Saboe provides a great picture of the pre-Flood world and their possible technologies, many of which we have invented ourselves within the last century. The book and many of the sci-fi objects/concepts that are utilized were very well-researched and explained, and additional information is once again provided in the appendicies. The pre-Flood world was also elegantly described based upon fossil and geological discoveries, especially given the sparse amount of information we have. I especially enjoyed the short history notes by Amoela which introduced each chapter; it gave the reader they were reading actual history and gave them something to keep in the back of their mind as they followed the story. If you liked "The Days of Peleg", you'll enjoy this book just as much (if not more)!
