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?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Thrilling Mix Of Myth & Reality 22 janvier 2012
Par Garrity Graves - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 An interesting idea, taken a little too far 17 janvier 2013
Par Megan - Publié sur Amazon.com

I want to start by saying I am a long time non-believer, however I do enjoy a good mystery or thriller related to Christian mythology. I thought this story was well written, well researched, and overall a pretty enjoyable read. I like when an author creates a story around what can be considered unanswered questions from the Bible. For me it's the same as any other historical fiction that takes a few known details about an event or person and fills in the story with an interesting "what-if" scenario.

Now the nuts and bolts of it and why I'm giving it 3 stars.

-It was incredibly gory. I mean just pages and pages or people being torn apart and descriptions of the violence and gore. Don't get me wrong, I'm not prudish or overly opposed to violence and gore in fiction, I just found that it detracted a bit from my interest in the story in parts. It would jump from an archaeologist basically giving an interesting "history" lesson to people being ripped apart in about 2 sentences. There was one particular part of the story that got particularly violent and it seemed like one of the characters was going to explain why but no one ever did. *The part with the boys playing the game and the woman comes in, I would really like to know how Henry or Jackson knew that it wasn't what it seemed and tried to warn John to stop.*

-I'm not a fan of books full of weak women. None of the main characters were women, which is fine, but all the peripheral female characters were weak and useless. That's not how women are in real life. If my husband went missing you can be sure I would be doing more than calling my pastor and letting him take care of everything. John's wife (the most prominent female character) was kind and faithful but also always right on the edge of hysterics. She couldn't or wouldn't do anything for herself and needed a man to step up and intercede on her behalf. She didn't turn to her family or friends when things were tough, she didn't get support anywhere except from her pastor and his wife (who was just sort of in the story to make sure Pastor Brian and Kristen were never alone together, because that wouldn't be Christian).
We never have any sort of experience with the women on the island as they are hiding in caves, weak and waiting for the men folk to save them. The few women we do encounter are essentially evil and manipulative and overly forceful. To me, the perspective the author shows of women is that they are either fragile and need to be taken care of and if not they are evil women trying to use or trap a man. I don't like that dichotomy because I don't really know any women that fit either ends of that spectrum.

-Even with these things I still thought it was a reasonably fun read and then the epilogue killed it. It was like the frantic journal writing of a hardcore conspiracy theorist and was very off putting.

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 NK Author Services/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.
