"I was expecting a dystopian style post-apocalypse story, got what I asked for, and more... I was completely hooked and had to force myself to stop reading." - Bookish Ardour
"This is an extremely fast-paced read, which piles crisis upon crisis and climax upon climax, but without trying the reader's patience." - Bibrary Book Lust
"In such a future, we don't expect to meet the next-door neighbour. We expect people that have been brought up in a desperate and completely hostile environment." - Papyrus Independent Author Reviews
"I found this to be an interesting premise and not one that's been used much. Reaser does a good job of making the scenario believable and realistic." - Adventures Fantastic
"For those who wish to enjoy a non-stop, page-turning adventure story, Age of Giants will not disappoint, but will delight, fascinate, and satisfy." - Sift Reviews
Four generations have passed since the giants of old, the Nephilim, returned to dominate the world with an iron fist. After unleashing a devastating plague, these sons of the fallen angels have enslaved mankind to satiate their lust for power, gluttony and sexual avarice. Yet hidden among the rubble and decay of a vanquished civilization are scattered bands of survivors, raiders, who press their fight for freedom and the ultimate annihilation of the race of giants who once again threaten to lay waste to the earth.
Nora is a tall and beautiful young woman whose skills in guerrilla combat have earned her a position as leader of a small team of raiders. While away on a mission to destroy an outlying Nephilim communications post in old New Mexico, Nora's clan is nearly wiped out in a Nephilim attack. The survivors, including Nora's father, are taken for slave labor deep inside the Kralen Dominion. Nora sets out to rescue her father, but along the way she's held captive by a secretive resistance group, and uncovers a dark secret that puts her in the center of the war against the brutal giant overlords.
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING...
"You are engrossed in the tale, turning pages. You are no longer sitting back in your chair. You are leaning forward, close to the seat's edge, reading more quickly. These are real characters and this is tight, suspenseful storytelling. This is "Awakening" in Rob Reaser's AGE OF GIANTS series, and awake you will be. Long into the night, well into tomorrow." -Tom Corcoran, author of the Alex Rutledge Mystery, "Hawk Channel Chase" and the forthcoming "The Quick Adios (Times Six)."
"In his excellent debut novel AGE OF GIANTS: Awakening, Reaser's muscular style and fast-paced ease of storytelling prove he's got the goods to be a giant in the speculative fiction realm." - Gregory L. Norris, author of "The Q Guide to Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (Alyson Books 2008) and the forthcoming "The Fierce and Unforgiving Muse: A Baker's Dozen From the Terrifying Mind of Gregory L. Norris" (EJP 2011).
"Reaser delivers with a riveting, chilling tale of a future Earth in which the human race is no longer dominant. AGE OF GIANTS is a hugely entertaining novel with a tightly-wound plot, flesh-and-blood characters and masterful world-building. I came to the last page and wanted to start the next book in the series immediately." - Steve Statham, author of the comedic alternate history "Presidential Muscle Cars" and the sci-fi thriller "Rules of Force."
