A soul is bestowed upon mankind endowing them with free will, a gift from the Almighty. It is considered a blasphemy for a woman and an Angel to procreate for the end result is a nephilim, a being without a soul who roams the earth in human form.
The Covenant is struck between Chaos and Serenity allowing only those who choose to, to willingly seek out demons and follow the darkness. Long ago the church created the Palet, special humans to fight against demons and the darkness. When the Covenant is put in place the Palet are rendered useless, no longer allowed to strike down any and all demons. Thus far the uneasy truce between darkness and light holds.
One Palet in particular, Indigo Black disagrees vehemently with the ties that bind him from hunting demon kind. He has already faced his worst moment when Ariel, his assigned Angel is struck from Heaven because of Indigo’s actions. The night his mentor, an older Palet is found dead, surrounded by dead demons Indigo knows the Covenant has been broken. Investigating the deed sends Indigo on the path of a high level demon who harbors the unthinkable in his club, a nephilim. What makes this creature, Neko even more impossible to believe is that he has a soul. Indigo will break every rule, every dictate to keep Neko from the darkness. The battle is only beginning.
Nephilim Prophecy is an incredibly complex, gripping tale where shades of grey matter more than black and white. Layer upon layer various plotlines connect through flawed characters and their actions. There is obviously a religious aspect to Nephilim Prophecy but it’s not about church rhetoric, it’s the fight of light against dark. Indigo, Ariel, Neko, and the rest will worm their way into your heart as they struggle for answers. Nephilim Prophecy is complicated, dark, and unforgiving at times, yet what happens next can’t come soon enough. I have to Joyfully recommend this difficult, utterly wrenching tale of redemption.
