The story starts out with the creation of heaven and earth. Gabriel has rule over communication and 1/3 of the angels. Michael has 1/3 of the angels. And Lucifer, who has control over praise and music has a 1/3 that he takes with him when he thinks himself equal to God. God changes his name to Satan. Anytime God changes someone’s name that is an important event. Satan had shown himself to be self-centered and jealous. Adam is created in the image of God and names all the animals as well as plants and trees. He also becomes friends with the serpent. When Eve is created, Satan gets the serpent to think that Adam is now more concerned with Eve than the serpent. Satan then uses the serpent to doubt what God said about the Tree of Knowledge and to eat of the fruit. After this Eve shares the fruit with Adam. We all know that this was a huge mistake. Adam and Eve are put out of the Garden of Eden by God. The character that I liked least in the story was Baasha he was as crooked as a bent limb, and twice as dishonest. I enjoyed the part of the story most about Noah and the building of the Ark. I found the story by R. Frederick Riddle to be an excellent read. Well written and certainly deserving of a solid 5 stars. I look forward to reading more novels by R. Frederick Riddle

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one. All thoughts & opinions are entirely my own.

A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written Biblical historical fiction book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great Biblical historical fiction movie, or better yet a mini TV series. It was different, & just OK for me so I will rate it at 4/5 stars.
