Xulon author John L. Owens' debut novel, The Ninth Generation: Conquering the Giants, promises to make a splash in the fiction genre with its action-packed narrative set in a unique epoch of history. In the pre-flood world of unspoiled beauty, a Sethite tree-village is gripped by a strange terror. Another daughter has vanished from the valley. Tracks point to the south-a mysterious continental island-the land of the Nephilim giants. Methuselah's son, Lameck, is forced into a desperate rescue journey that turns romantic, but he encounters supernatural opposition unleashed by the angelic adversary, Lucifer. Only Enoch-the one who walked with God-can free Lameck and prepare him to face and overcome the fortresses of evil.
Crafted after the style of Frank Peretti's best-selling novel, This Present Darkness, Owens' debut is an action-filled romantic adventure that focuses on many deep mysteries, including the Nephilim, Leviathan and Behemoth, and a corrupt Cainite priesthood aligned with Lucifer. Culled from five years of research, The Ninth Generation delves into a beautiful but dark era in which subjects such as the interaction of angels and humans, the translation of Enoch, and the co-existence of man and dinosaurs take center stage.
Says Owens, "Mankind needs to have hope and victory in the world today. I hope that the readers will gain an understanding of what it may have been like living with the centenarians of the pre-flood earth and, that in the midst of encroaching evil, they will see the same principles for victory that existed at that time can also be applied today."
