In this Books of Enoch novel series author J.L. Thompson chronicles the lives of several of the original icons of humanity and the events that shaped the history of the early world.
Enoch was a central figure of these earliest recorded times and the eyewitness to the events of this epoch who recorded them for the benefit of future generations. It is in bringing his writings to light that the author merges historical reporting with dramatic storytelling to relate the important and intriguing events that eventually led to a worldwide catastrophe.
Enoch, seventh from Adam, began as an unremarkable “lad” with a speech impediment, but rose to the call to help his people in perilous times. Technological implementations and diabolical deceit were destroying the people, their civilization, and the very planet, and Enoch sought feverishly to gather out those who would listen to his message before the end came crashing down on them in planetary upheaval.
This first book of the Enoch series is titled Enoch: Trees of the Garden, and chronicles the early years of young Enoch, the seventh from Adam. As a mere “lad” Enoch is not the most obvious choice to lead his people, being smaller and weaker than most of the young men of his village and having a speech impediment that makes him appear weak to many. Nonetheless, Father Adam recognizes in him one who will rise to the call to help his people when perilous times threaten on the horizon.
Watchers, fallen angels, demons, giants, raiders, armies and Father Cain create intrigue as darkness hangs an ominous cloud over the land and young Enoch seems destined to take the weight of the troubled world on his narrow shoulders. The boy comes face to face with the reality of evil and employs every mental and spiritual power at his disposal to combat it.
