Enok and the Womb of Gods by André SkoroBogáty takes you into an ancient world that is dominated by gods and monsters. It combines religion and classical myths to create an original fantasy adventure. The story revolves around a slave named Enok, who serves an ancient race of serpents that dwell on a remote island. Under servitude, he educates himself so that his captors may eye him as their equals. For the first time, he meets other humans when a ship is wrecked on the island, and it stokes his desire to plan his escape from the island. Being accused of a crime he did not commit, he had nothing to lose in risking escape along with the other castaways. And in his quest to find out the truth about his past, an ancient reliquary must be opened.
Enok and the Womb of Gods is reminiscent of the high adventures of Greek mythology. The action and tension build up as you progress in reading. SkoroBogáty’s writing style will appeal to a large audience for his lively (and even scholarly) interpretations of ancient myths and culture. His novel brings into brilliant focus the harmony of science and theology with lyrical power and simplicity. Be prepared for some extras like annotations, glossary, exordium, and author’s notes, as if André SkoroBogáty wants to make sure that you get fully immersed. With or without these extras, you can dive straight into the story for that experience. Enok and the Womb of Gods is highly entertaining and at the same time affirms the strength of the classical past.
