Publisher's Summary

Six Giant Assassins.
Goliath Was Only the First.

Everyone knows the story of David. Or so you think. No one has heard it told this way before.
In the days of Samuel the Seer, the Philistines are at the climax of a long war with Israel over the land of Canaan. There are still giants in Philistia left from Joshua's search and destroy mission of holy war generations earlier. Their numbers have grown.
The young Philistine giant warrior Goliath steals the sacred ark of the covenant from Israel. But Yahweh's curse upon Goliath's people for that deed sets in motion an obsession of revenge and the creation of an elite warrior cult of giants, The Sons of Rapha, whose sole ambition is to kill the promised messiah king of Israel.
The only problem is, Israel's King Saul is not that chosen one, because he is possessed by the evil spirit of an ancient malevolent ruler who seeks to kill that same unknown and spiritually anointed king.
They both discover it is David, son of Jesse, a young insignificant shepherd musician who woos the girls, and who miraculously slays Goliath in a battle contest. But now David is running for his life from both family and foe, gathering outlaws as allies, and eventually hiding in the one place no one would ever dream of: Goliath's home town, the Philistine city of Gath.
With David in the Serpent's lair, the queen of Gath trying to seduce him, King Saul and the Philistine giants trying to assassinate him, and David's three wives all vying for his attention, this gritty romantic action adventure story will take you places in the Bible you've never seen before.
You think you know how it ends. But there is so much more to the story than you ever realized.
The War of the Seed continues with the Philistines vs. the Messiah King of Israel.
Part of the Biblical Fantasy Series Chronicles of the Nephilim

Great Job by Godawa

Brian Godawa does a great job of bringing to life the stories of the Torah. Some of the descriptions are gory, barbaric and lascivious not meant for the young or squeamish. I would give it a five if there was are more PG version but I am great full for Godawa's use of the Torah and other ancient texts such as the book of Jasher and the Zohar. I have followed the whole series and wait for the next one Jehoshua on audio.

Too homosexual

I was not expecting such vivid portrayals of homosexuality. I think there could've been less of that and I would've given this a five star rating but because it appeals to those inside the faith that really try to avoid those types of images, I think the author should have done a better job of not being so vivid with those scenes.
