The Blood of The Nephilim is a short sci-fi story by Steve Zimcosky. The year is 1965. Ted Korfanta is all set to take part in a screening provided by the Health and Human Services Department. Ted is unique in a way that his blood is AB negative, which is only present in 0.6% of the population. Unlike his siblings, Ted never gets sick. After graduating from college, he becomes an archaeologist traveling all over the world. Fast forward to 2019, Jerome Ferro, the owner of Genesis Genetics, is on a manhunt to find people like Ted. With the help of Jonathan, a top researcher in his company, Jerome tracks down Ted at the Gobekli Tepe dig site in Turkey. Ted and his friends are in grave danger as Jerome plans to experiment on him and execute his friends. Now, unknown beings living in the surrounding area may be the only hope Ted and his friends have to survive.
The Blood of The Nephilim is a fast-paced read which doesn't get bogged down in unnecessary details. Zimcosky's narrative reads like the screenplay of a movie and feels like a fresh mountain breeze. I gulped it down in one sitting, never feeling the need to take a break. The characters are relatable, and even though it's not a character-oriented story, Ted Korfanta and Ines Ritter hold their own. The fascinating aspect of The Blood of The Nephilim was Zimcosky's use of science fiction mixed with religious mythology. If you like a quick-paced sci-fi tale with some mythological elements sprinkled on top of it, then this is the book for you.
