Nancy Madore: The Hidden Ones (Legacy of the Watchers, #1)

Think Nancy Madore did this uite well I m looking orward to reading Book 2 Copy provided by the author in exchange or an honest review Thousands of years ago something came out of the sky that changed the course of human history Testimonies abound of these angels and their hybrid offspring the Nephilim giants These mighty gods uickly rose to power and the ancient world came alive with industry and culture Many consider this period in history to be the dawn of our civilization People who lived as hunters and gatherers or hundreds of thousands of years suddenly began settling in one place cultivating the land and even governing themselves They invented irrigation the wheel protective armor and algebra They somehow acuired knowledge of our solar system that even modern technology wasn t able to confirm until the 1970s Most importantly they began to read and write Yet an undercurrent of terror was spreading like wildfire carrying whispers of djinn daeva and demons Back in present day Nadia Adeire CEO of BEACON a successful company based on charity The Ordways for victims of natural disasters is kidnappedrom her Manhattan office while working through her holidays She is taken by a mysterious group of people wearing strange masks to a desolate location in Saudi Arabia kept prisoner and interrogated عبد الناصر والعالم for days This book is the story of that interrogationThe kidnappers believe Nadia to be the newest incarnation of Lilith the notorious demonessrom old Jewish legends They also suspect that she is heavily involved with an impending terrorist attack that will stun the entire world While aced with the relentless uestioning of her interrogators Nadia recounts the story of her grandmother Helene who recently passed away and who was obsessed with the legends of LilithThe story of The Hidden Ones is told rom three different points of view Nadia herself in present day Lilith 5000 years ago and Helene as a young girl in 1948 Nadia s POV mostly just provides a A Wedding in Cornwall (Cornwall frameor the rest of the story and the interrogation takes place Japan-Ness in Architecture for the entire length of the book something that unfortunately makes Nadia s chapters uite boring at times The other two POV s are a lot interesting especially Helene Even those chapters occasionally struggled to keep my attention but all in all Ielt that this method of storytelling with three different protagonists in three different periods of time was well executedBoth the story itself and the characters eatured in it have both their positive and negative sides On the positive side the story is both innovative and uite ascinating providing interesting explanations to mysteries of history religion and Theoretical Anxiety and Design Strategies in the Work of Eight Contemporary Architects fairytales alike like the legends of Gilgamesh and hisamous uest or eternal life the biblical Deluge and a lot of others In Lilith and Helene we also get two really interesting characters On the negative side none of the other characters are interesting to read about at all they re one dimensional and it doesn t eel like they add anything to the story Also despite a traumatising kidnapping and the threat of a terrorist attack it doesn t The Psychopharmacology of Herbal Medicine feel like much is happening to cause great excitement Somehow iteels like Nadia s story is completely detached Psychopharmacology of Herbal Medicine from the threats to the world possibly because she spends almost the entire book being interrogated by her kidnappersWhen it comes to the writing the wordlawless is the Six first that comes to mind That doesn t mean I ll go around uotingrom this book Bandscheiben-Leiden - Was tun?: Mit den besten bungen fr den Alltag for the rest of my life only that there was absolutely nothing wrong with the way this book was written and that everything seemed to be done in a completely professional mannerMy opinion about this book is certainly influenced by theact that this is not the kind of book that I normally tend to read There is too much of the paranormal Lady Janes Nemesis for my taste but that does in no way mean that the book was bad Only that I didn t like it as much as I could haveWould I recommend this book Yes I think I would Especially if you enjoy reading paranormal books urbanantasy or even thrillers and crime A Texas Rangers Family (The Stone Family fiction It is uite easy to see that both the series and the author have a lot of potential here especially because the book seemed to be gradually improving all the wayrom the beginning until the end That certainly bodes well Racialization, Crime, and Criminal Justice in Canada for the rest of the series and even this book was interesting enough that I will most likely continue reading the seuels as well.

finally of the mythical Lilith The stories intertwine in a really interesting way Nadia is the grandchild of Helene and spent her childhood listening to her grandmother s stories about Lilith and the Nephilim which surely can t be real Only they seem to be and a secret group is trying to discover Telling the stories was very differentrom simply listening to them It reuired involvement but it made them seem real The little details suddenly seemed significantFrom the little I ve learned about Lilith she is often presented as a rebel and a Business Studies XII Part - I feminist icon and in this book she s presented as such too She s a Nephilin offspring of the union between angels and humans which makes her stronger and larger than humans but she s still a woman and has to deal with a lot because her strong willed nature isn t appreciated in a woman I liked reading her story because she had to prove herself as a rightful warrior and I think that story is relatable to a lot of womenLilith was uite arrogant but in a sense you can understand her arrogance as wall to protect herrom her own isolation She was uite harsh towards the humans as well but I think there s a grain of truth to what she thought But that was the way of the sons of men in all things They mutilated the simplest pleasures with their irrational ears and misguided sentiments They acted as if joy was in short supply to be measured out in small doses I enjoyed the writing style although it was a thriller and uite ast paced I thought the writing was ar rom being simplistic I think it s uite the Wert and the Life Without End feat to combine Biblical stories with mythology and discuss the repercussions to modern time but Va’ and ‘demons’ The Watchers were supposed to do just that watch But humankind provedar too tempting and they ‘fell’ to earth taking wives and even producing children But their children grew into unruly giants whose souls didn’t ascend like human souls when they die but remained here on earth These errant souls haunt the earth to this day They are the ‘djinn’ the ‘hidden ones’ also known as ‘daeva’ and ‘demon’ They have one purpose to live But to live they need bodies This chain of events has now reached the point where the djinn need than just our bodies to survive They must take back control of the earth just as in the days when they ruled as gods The Hidden Ones book.
