Overview

The warning cry of a ram's horn pierces the stillness of a tree village, but it comes too late. A daughter is missing and giant human-like tracks point south in the direction of a mysterious island and land of the Nephilim. Catapult into the emerald beautiful but dangerously evil world of the antediluvians. Winged hunters, behemoths, and the river monster leviathan await. Join the desperate and romantic journey with Lameck, the ninth from Adam, as he drops into the lair of a supernatural adversary. The ancient world is on the edge of genetic destruction. Is this the story of the end or the beginning? Was it the dawn of legends? Gripping, entertaining and revealing.

Editorial Reviews

G. Reba
Journey into biblical times, a full generation before Noah and his ark, to see the world as it once was...full of life and beauty, yet equally sewn with hardship and grieve. Mr. Owens weaves a story of passion and intrigue using religious references from books of old. His writing style poetically describes the lands into which the reader will travel allowing them the chance to experience the tale first hand. The characters voices speak from the pages with both a depth and sincerity felt within h
K. Harris
Book flows from giant imagination...the tale of a pre-flood world and a Sethite tree village threatened by the Nephilim giants. The story begins when a giant is killed which leads to a rescue mission. It's up to Enoch, the one who walks with God, to free Methuselah's son, Lameck, and prepare him for the battle involving an angelic adversary... Putting together this book was a journey for Owens...delve into ancient texts...It's his imagination, but it is something that could have happened.
Maggie Jarpey
A fascinating page turner that stays with you -This fascinating, original story manages to be completely believable even though it deals with amazing events. The author's imagination is huge but never crosses the boundary of biblical possibility. Thoroughly enjoyable and at the same time spiritually edifying. It stays on your mind, and I plan to reread it in the future.
Tom Scott
John Owens' epic novel, The Ninth Generation, transcends all ideology barriers with an appeal that is as timeless as the Bible itself. John masterfully explores an area that is 'new ground' in the arena of fiction based on fact- John spins a nail biting adventure as Lameck and his people struggle with the forces of evil. A refreshing view of the world before the 'Great Flood'...a must read. It begs for more of the same.
Tracy Krauss
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in pre-flood history, or just to those who enjoy the fantasy genre in general. It is quite Tolkien-esque in many ways.
