Behemoth (Lost Civilization #5)

3.83  ·  Rating Details  ·  113 Ratings  ·  6 Reviews
Desiring an invincible beast for his host, Gog sends his offspring Dagon to the Sea of Nur. Dagon has one goal: tame the fabled Behemoth and return it to Shamgar. But the mightiest beast of all lives in the shadow of a lost celestial power and in the primitive lands of the Rovian. The journey will surely tax even those of the blood.

Seeking their defeat is Lod, a white-bear

Vaughn Heppner continues his story of sword and sorcery hero Lod in his fifth in the Lost Civilizations series, "Behemoth." The story picks up with Lod and companions sorely outmatched by the legions of Gog. Gog, a first born abomination, has seen a premonition that involves harnessing a behemoth on an island last lived on by the fallen celestials bene elohim. Very steeped in lore and evil. Lod has with him a former rat hunter and her boyfriend a former leper. Their association with Lod has made ...more

Back to Scriptural basis--Good!

This series is a fascinating what-if, what if the Bible included the time before the great flood, and documented the lives of Adam and Eves progeny. It also deals with the mysterious Nephilim and the "Sons of God", here, bene elohim, the fallen angels who rebelled against God (Elohim, in Hebrew). Vaughn gives us a mystical world where these creatures inflict their nefarious acts upon mankind, and where Elohim empowers his Seraphs among mankind to oppose these evil

Great ending...

Lod's story is riveting. Now I have to download the next book in this series... it is more of his background and I hope it will be just as interesting as the first five books.

It just doesn't stop! Heppner keeps writing one excellent novel after another in the Lost Civilizations series. Yet again, Mr. Heppner gives us a thumping good read of the first order. This is book five and it returns to the tale directly where we left off in book four. Lod did not kill Gog, instead blinded his single eye. While Gog can still retain his oracular visions, his loss of physical sight has driven him insane causing him to turn on those closest to him. Gog has sent his son Dagon, his ...more

Another fantastic addition to the series. Great characters, great pacing, short but exciting action, and an excellent utilization of the world the mythos that's been established. For being a one-trick pony of stabbing things in the face, the protagonist Lod sure makes for a fun character to read.

Lod (Conan the barbarian) now assumes the leading role against the Nephilins. He is not smart as Keros nor is he likeable as Joash.

This book has its focus in Lod's fights. There is much less wonders in the world than the previous books. excluding the behemoth there is nothing new

I was thinking in giving this book a 3 stars, but the last chapters were really good. Keept me interested until the end

I was born in Canada and remember as a small boy crawling in my snow-fort. I closed my eyes, and when I tried to open them, they were frozen shut. I didn't panic, but wiped away the ice crystals, unglued my eyes and kept on building my tunnel. Those were great days! I moved to Central California before seventh grade and couldn't believe I lived in a lan
