Présentation de l'éditeur

THE NEPHILIM WERE ON THE EARTH IN THOSE DAYS - AND ALSO AFTERWARD - WHEN THE SONS OF GOD WENT TO THE DAUGHTERS OF MEN AND HAD CHILDREN BY THEM. THEY WERE THE HEROES OF OLD, MEN OF RENOWN. - GENESIS 6:4

"Cussler, Brown, Hopkins!" - Heidi Ruby Miller, Ambasadora

"DaVinci Code meets Stargate...a gritty, bloody tale that will make you think, question, and cringe from one page to the next!" - Christopher Starr, The Road To Hell

It has been months since John Carter's estranged brother, Henry, has gone missing. When last heard from, he was sailing off to Bermuda in search of an author whose books deal with the esoteric traditions of past ages.

Reluctantly, John joins Henry's old Special Forces Teammates on a trip to Bermuda, hoping to discover the truth behind Henry's disappearance. But not all is as it seems in Bermuda, and the puzzle that awaits John on the small island paradise will prove to be more sinister than anything the world has seen in a very long time.

As the fingers of an ancient evil seek to draw him into another world - a world where all of Hell is trying to break loose - John must confront the truth of his own past...and pray that he might survive its revelation...

...that the world might survive its revelation.

Described as "Dan Brown meets Lost meets Left Behind," Progeny takes the reader through the heart of the Bermuda Triangle and drops them in a world where biblical legends and ancient mythologies - the similarities of which Hopkins "describes with academic dexterity" - reign terrifyingly supreme. Buckle up! Progeny is "equal parts religious thriller and action-packed roller coaster ride!"

"A well-researched and fast-paced thriller!" - Larry Enright, best-selling author of 12/21/12 and Four Years From Home

"Will make you question what you believe!" - Doug Dorow, best-selling author of The Ninth District

"This is a meaty meal of thrills!" - Ryne Douglas Pearson, best-selling author of Simple Simon and screenwriter of the box-office hit, Knowing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Smart, action-packed thrill ride 6 novembre 2011
Par Christopher Starr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The first 4 verses of Genesis 6 introduce the rationale for God's flooding of the earth: angels--the sons of God--were making wives out of the daughters of men. And having children with them. "There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." (Genesis 6:4). The contention is that God caused the flood to wash away the remnants of this corruption to return humanity to its pure roots. In Shawn Hopkins' Progeny, the practice never stopped.

In a story I can best describe as The DaVinci Code meets Stargate, Hopkins weaves fallen angels, the gods of ancient mythology and the Bermuda Triangle into an intricate tale whose true focus is in the power of redemption. In a quest to find his missing brother, ex-Ranger John Carter is transported (literally) into a world of secrets and bloodlines, angels and demons. And giants. Big, nasty, bloodthirsty giants.

Carter's quest is a much about his brother as it is about his own identity and the ties that bind. Hopkins knows his stuff and it is evident, though a little heavy-handed at times. His proficiency in scripture, the Book of Enoch, and ancient civilizations makes this novel credible and a little frightening. Hopkins describes the similarities between ancient mythologies and Old Testament tales with academic dexterity and makes them central to the plot of the story. Where his skill lies is in pulling you, through John's experience, into the disconcerting realities his research suggests and the sinister conclusions they hold.

Progeny is equal parts religious thriller and action-packed roller coaster ride. Hopkins may write Christian-themed fiction but he doesn't play it safe: it's a gritty, bloody tale that will make you think, question and cringe from one page to the next. Did I mention the giants?

Par Garrity Graves - Publié sur Amazon.com

Blending the real world with things beyond our nature is not an easy task, but Hopkins has done just that with Progeny. This is a meaty meal of thrills, but never skimps on the details that give the story a bite of reality, and, thankfully, freshness. This is a book not cut from the same cloth as other thrillers that tread similar ground.

Highly recommended.

This book was phenomenal. It was well researched and held many interesting theories. This book isn't just for those who like history, though. It also has a very interesting plot. Often times I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. I highly recommend this book for any and all history, religious, and/or fictional readers.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Christian Fiction 2 novembre 2012
Par Nickinic - Ebooks Galore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is tagged under "psychological thriller" "action" "romantic suspense". Not sure what everyone is thinking. The synopsis sounds great, John searching for his brother, Bermuda Triangle, Special Forces. But, just 4% into the book and I've seen more God/Religion references than you would think to find in a "Psychological Thriller". I don't like being mis-lead into a Christian Fiction.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing. 6 septembre 2012
Par Zhukov - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I had high hopes for this book. It started well and created a real sense of dread. Unfortunately, it began to completely fall apart about 1/3 of the way through. It has nothing to do with being for or against religion, but the complete mish-mash of theories to explain the completely implausible storyline. It comes up with such tortured theories that it spends page after page weaving together facets of Christianity, Mayan culture, ancient Egypt, etc. etc. etc. None of it makes any sense in the end, and I just stopped caring about the characters and how it all ended. Not that it ended in a real sense either. Overall, a VERY disappointing book.
