Six Giant Assassins. Goliath Was Only the First. 
 
David Ascendant: Young Adult Edition is a version of the original novel David Ascendant edited to be appropriate for ages 13 and above, Grades 8 and above. It is the seventh book in the series, Chronicles of the Nephilim For Young Adults.
 
Everyone knows the story of David. Or so you think. No one has heard it told this way before.  
 
In the days of Samuel the Seer, the Philistines are at the climax of a long war with Israel over the land of Canaan. There are still giants in Philistia left from Joshua's search and destroy mission of holy war generations earlier. Their numbers have grown.
 
The young Philistine giant warrior Goliath creates an elite warrior cult of giants, The Sons of Rapha, whose sole ambition is to kill the promised messiah king of Israel.
 
The only problem is, Israel's King Saul is not that chosen one, because he is possessed by the evil spirit of an ancient malevolent ruler who seeks to kill that same anointed king.
 
They both discover it is David, son of Jesse, a young insignificant shepherd musician who woos the girls, and who miraculously slays Goliath in a battle contest. But now David is running for his life from both family and foe, gathering outlaws as allies, and eventually hiding in the one place no one would ever dream of: Goliath's home town, the Philistine city of Gath.
 
With David in the Serpent's lair, the queen of Gath trying to trap him, King Saul and the Philistine giants trying to assassinate him, and David's three wives all vying for his attention, this romantic action adventure story will take you places in the Bible you've never seen before.
 
You think you know how it ends. But there is so much more to the story than you ever realized.
 
The War of the Seed continues with the Philistines vs. the Messiah King of Israel.
 
Biblical Fantasy Based on History and Ancient Mythology
 
David Ascendant: Young Adult Edition is written in the spirit of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, blending fantasy and mythopoeia with history to retell the Biblical narrative with a fresh perspective, making it come alive in a new way, while staying true to the original spirit of the Bible story.
