Nephilim is a sort of twist on the vampire novel, a sort of supernatural detective novel set in a lakeside Colorado town, focusing on an ancient evil described in Genesis. I would…associate it with the works of Stephen King.

Chris Nelson,


This was an amazing book…I could hardly put it down.  It was fast paced enough to not get boring but there was plenty of storyline to keep me interested.  I love books like this that follow a legend and offer very plausible evidence that what is happening can be contributed to the legend.

I liked the way the characters unfolded without having to go into in-depth reviews about the background of each character even though their backgrounds were very important.  But you figured it out.  I like that the author didn’t treat me like a three-year-old by letting me get things on my own without having to tell me every five minutes, hey remember that.  But at the same time the important points were not left to chance.

This book was scary in places but it definitely has plenty of heart and you gain a feel for the characters and mourn when they are gone.  This would make an awesome movie with special effects and horrendous bad guys.  This is a total must read for me.

This is not my normal genre but the title caught my attention. As soon as I saw it I recalled the Nephilim from my long ago Sunday School classes. I downloaded the sample, read three pages, and then purchased the book. My intuition was dead on. Renée is a heck of an author. The book grabs you immediately and it doesn’t turn you loose until you’ve read the last word. Ms. Pawlish is a storyteller of the highest order. She brings her characters to life and sends them straight into your head. Her descriptions are vivid and the plot doesn’t waver; that’s all one should expect from any book, though it’s way more than we normally get. I’m not even tempted to say it was worth the price because I don’t indulge in gross understatements. After you buy the book, carefully plan when you will begin reading it because it’s more than likely you won’t be able to put it down. Renée Pawlish is now on my favorite writer list and it’s not a long one.

I absolutely LOVED this book and must admit that it was my first Renée Pawlish book. I couldn’t put it down. She formed the words and actions so well that I felt like I was right in the middle of Taylor Crossing. It was well-written and kept me on the edge of my seat. I’m looking for the Part 2 of this series (hopefully, there is one…. I have to find out how Rory, The Chronicler, and the Nephilim end up). Great work, Renée! You are my inspiration to be a better writer! Thanks!

Nephilim Genesis of Evil by author Renée Pawlish is a mystery-suspense novel with a heaping of Paranormal. Well written and all-consuming, Nephilim truly is a spooky party you don’t want to pass up.

To be honest this is a complete “out of the box” read for me, I was a bit hesitant going into the story, but after the second chapter I couldn’t put it down to save my life! Or feed the dog for that matter, but fear not he got lots of love after. ;) Ancient spirits are plaguing a small city in the Colorado Rockies, people are starting to go missing or beginning to act very….strange. *Twilight Zone music plays* Could it be the work of a curse or maybe something darker and bloodier than first imagined? Supernatural beings could be afoot OR it could all be a massive hoax to scare a big city journalist following up on some mysterious stories of gold rush days and run-down mining towns. You won’t know which it is until the very end and that’s what keeps you turning the pages at a hyper-speed pace.

I started reading the book at night, and while I talk a big game about being a vampire I am terrified of the things that go bump in the night! If you get spooked easily then read this thriller during the day, possibly with the doors locked. Renée writes in such a vividly detailed way you are completely sucked into her believable world. Her characters have a solid foundation of truth and a flow you don’t come by often. The smex level is low but you don’t need much of it with a book this hott!

It’s a powerful read with some important points that Renée does a brilliant job of touching on while diving deeper with more meaningful description when needed. The rugged outdoor setting draws you into this small town affair keeping you well entranced. If you love a well written story that will take you to edge of suspense shake you around a bit just for giggles and drag you back then grab this book today!

      It’s implied that they were at least bad as God used the flood to wipe them out. And research into other texts would show they were not good creatures. Why are you typing all in caps? Thanks for your question.
