As CEO of her own thriving company, Nadia Adeire is flush with success, but a secret society dating back to the Essenes believes her to be one of the ancient djinn—the notorious demoness of Hebrew legend: Lilith. What’s more, they have reason to believe that she’s plotting a catastrophic attack on the world.

Nadia is snatched from her ‘perfect’ life and caught in a maze between a present day disaster and the ancient legends of the djinn. Her only way out is to retrace the steps of her deceased grandmother, Helene. The deeper Nadia delves into the past, the harder it will be for her to emerge unscathed. But it’s the only way to stop the impending disaster that was set in motion five thousand years ago.

Thousands of years ago, something happened that changed the course of human history. Testimonies abound of these otherworldly visitors they called ‘angels,’ and their hybrid offspring, the ‘Nephilim.’ These mighty ‘gods’ quickly rose to power, and the ancient world came alive with industry and culture. The species that existed for hundreds of thousands of years as hunters and gatherers suddenly began settling in one place, cultivating the land and governing themselves. They created irrigation, the wheel and algebra. Yet amidst all this progress, an undercurrent of terror was spreading like wildfire, carrying whispers of ‘djinn,’ ‘daeva’ and ‘demons’…

The Watchers were supposed to do just that; watch. But humankind proved far 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 died, 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 reached the point where the djinn need more than just our bodies to survive. They must take back control of the earth, just as in the days when they ruled as gods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent start to the series! I'm not sure what genre this book fits into. It's got a little of everything. It all starts with a kidnapping. But then suddenly you don't know if the kidnappers are the bad guys or the good guys. They're trying to stop something terrible from happening. Before you know it, they are tracing the stories of two other women, one from the 1940s, around the war, and the other (my favorite) from Ancient Sumer. Boy was that part ever good. This mystery had me going from the get-go and I never saw the fantastic ending coming. The story is interesting, the writing is excellent, and the characters are memorable. As if that wasn't enough, this author really gets you thinking about all those things you think you already know. I can't wait to start the next book and see where the story will go next (I read a preview and it looked good!).
