In the prehistory of mankind, two-hundred rogue angels called The Watchers descended from heaven to take wives. As punishment, God banished them to the Outer Darkness, and vowed to eradicate their half-angel, half-human sons (the Nephilim) from the face of the earth.
Jequon, known as The Protector among his people, is one of these innocent bastards, and has fought hard for millennia to keep the Nephilim alive.
It hasn't been easy.
In Noah's day, God unleashed The Great Flood to exterminate the Nephilim; numerous curses and plagues would follow, all to no avail. So near the end of The Age of Miracles, God outsourced His holy-caust, to a devout sect called The Sons Of Jared (SOJ). Their mandate: to
complete His dirty work and exterminate the Nephilim. Their reward? An encoded scroll with instructions to unleash The Great Tribulation, the beginning of The End of Days.
Still Jequon and his noble people thrived—until now…
Centuries of sporadic SOJ success have yielded to a newfound killing efficacy. And Jequon, once The Protector, must fight to simply survive—no easy task given the SOJ's infiltration of the U.S. government, and the formidable resources now at their disposal. Jequon's best hope? a woman named Mercy, characterized by her faith in the same God who wants him dead. As Jequon helps Mercy search for her missing protégé (whom the SOJ kidnapped), an unlikely attraction begins to form, and the two must face the ironies of an undying love
doing battle with blind faith.
Takes a lot of hubris to make God the bad guy in a novel, but I'm the one who said I love Satan so I guess I had it coming.
This is of course a mess.
You're awash in world building and back story.
Start with what's going on now: Jequon and Mercy are...doing what? And why is Mercy his best hope? And if God wants them dead, why do I want them to live?
