Sons of Adam is a work of literary fiction with elements of magical realism and mysticism and was penned by author E. A. Rohrmoser. Written for adults due to some sexual content, this book forms the first novel of The Pentalogue, which collects tales of people working towards their purpose in a semi-magical setting. This first tale adapts characters from the Christian canon such as Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel, modernizing their conception and utilizing themes such as darkness and light to craft a unique new tale. What results is a sometimes surreal but always exciting journey of personal discovery.

Author E. A. Rohrmoser has created a truly literary work that blends many genres and spans many influences and themes to achieve its fully rounded and influential style of storytelling. The narrative feels biblical to begin with, taking our context of the modern world and shaking us up to feel the events unfolding on a more profound level. Once you’re into the style, the action begins to mount and the true poignancy of Rohrmoser’s well-described and atmospheric world truly takes shapes. Familiarity with some of the original Bible tales adds more depth, contrast and thinking points to the reading experience, but at its heart, the tale is truly about the human condition and our proclivity towards both light and dark, which is a widely relatable theme to all readers. Overall, Sons of Adam is an accomplished work that is sure to please fans of intelligent literary fiction and unique narrative voices.
