In the thousand years that have passed since Adam and Eve were cast from the Garden of Eden, their descendants have multiplied and spread across the face of the planet. In recent times rumours have been heard regarding a strange race of beings, the Nephilim, said to be the giant offspring of unholy alliances between the fallen sons of God and women of great beauty.

It seems the answers lie in a quest to find the legendary Garden of Eden and the fabled Tree of Life that stands in its midst. But will Thalan be able to survive the hostile journey to the other side of the world to find out?
