Publisher's Summary

The Nephilim loom over Niflheim.

Gods, Dharkan, and mortals fight amongst themselves in their shadow.

And Time is on no one's side.

The gods are outmatched, their talents useless against the Nephilim's technology. Desperate, they turn on each other. New alliances form and fall apart, for there can be no peace when survival is at stake. Psyche, torn between a goddess's duty and a mortal's hate, sets off on her own to learn the truth behind her fate, unaware of the danger following her.  

Meanwhile, Chronos's own agenda involves a power so dangerous and unpredictable it's been long forsaken by both the gods and the Nephilim.  

Will it be worth the risk?

Genre-bending and captivating

Overall: I'm hooked on this series, I love the characters, the world, and the story.

Performance: I thought Kempton did a great job of distinguishing between the characters, and really bringing the emotions through the unique voices she gave them. It was easy to get lost in the story, and I could almost see it unfolding in front of me.

Story: Wow, can you believe we're already three books in on this series? I can't! Each book, I get drawn in further, and I'm always sad to leave the amazing world Imaginário has created behind. Our favorite (and not so favorite) gods are back, and there's a new threat to face. The Nephilim were absolutely chilling, and watching the gods and mortals go up against them had me on the edge of my seat. As always, the story moved along smoothly and quickly, and before you know it, hours have passed, and you still want to read (or hear) more. I don't want to give away too much, but suffice it to say, if you've enjoyed the first two books, this third installment will blow you away!

Even better the second time through.

Just re-listened to the whole series so far as book 3.5 (Anachrony) was just released on audible yesterday and I believe the 4th and last book in the series is just round the corner. Realised I'd rated but not left a review....
At this point there's not much to say I haven't said in my reviews of the first 2 books, except that this series continues to impress with it's twisted take on the pantheons of mythology we all think we know so well.
And as I say in the headline, this is a book (and a series) that totally rewards a second listen through.

Best yet! Answers, but more questions compel read.

Despite a strong debut with Wyrd Gods, Susana Imaginario keeps bettering herself with The Dharkan and now this third in the series.

This installment tells us more of the science of the Nephilim and how they can remove the gods' power. The tension from waiting for the Nephilim's arrival is broken and answers are given to many of the questions posed in the first two books - so make sure you consume those to get the full flavour of the rich tapestry Susana weaves. This volume reminded me of the reward from re-reading and prompted me to go back over the previous stories. One example is Seshat (it was a little surprising an Egyptian mythological figure turning up amongst conflict between Greek and Norse gods) who is a bit player earlier, but comes into her own in this volume.

Alliances and pacts are made and broken with deep plots being uncovered. Some come to fruition and some are thwarted, but I found it very satisfying despite my own allegiances wavering and sometimes switching.

Sarah Kempton makes another excellent job of the narration with each character brought to life vividly and distinctly. No easy task with such a large cast, but she also manages to convey their emotional context appropriate for the words.

Questions and curiosity remains despite so many threads being resolved. The ending creates anticipation for the next volume. Maybe you can tell how eager I am for that.

A Brilliant addition to the story!

The Timelessness series has firmly ensconced itself in my favourite series list and with the third book, Nephilim's Hex, Susana Imaginàrio has upped the ante no end.

I recall when I wrote my review for The Dharkan, Susana Imaginàrio kindly responded to the review that I wrote explaining that if I thought The Dharkan was good (if you recall dear reader, I gave it 5💫 on Goodreads) then Nephilim's Hex was going to blow my mind Well, she was not wrong! Nephilim's Hex is a belter of a book and gosh was I surprised at this.

One of the things that I like about this series of books is that it kind of puts me in mind of a television series and works both on the macro and the micro level, in that each book is quite contained on the one hand but there is an over arcing story that is moving towards its ultimate conclusion.

In this, the third installment of the series, we finally get to meet The Nephilim. And they are a cold race that rely on the technology that they have installed in Niflheim. There's some interesting stuff going on with the Nephilim in that their tribute is a number of human women, which fits into the mythology of the Nephilim and how they are portrayed within Christian mythology as fallen angels who were cast from heaven for having relationships with human women.

This is one of the standouts that I love about Susana Imaginàrio's books and how she interweaves her love of mythology whilst at the same time subverting the myths to fit the story.

Now, I am purposefully avoiding the plot as I feel that any indication of plot points in the story would unravel the silken thread of this intricately woven web and it is best that you discover these for yourself. However, what I will reveal is that there are Revelations aplenty in this book which move the story on towards its ending.

In terms of characters, we spend more time with the other players that are part of the story and only spend a small proportion with the Goddess of Snarkiness, Psyche, although she does remain prominent but in other ways. In Nephilim's Hex we spend more time with the Titan of Time, Chronos, and his new protégé, Ideth, and a new character that is introduced to us, Hecate. However, old favourites like Loki are still knocking about creating havoc (as is Loki's nature) and there is also Seshat.

Again, I was lucky enough to receive an audio book from the author (although, I have it in book format too, and I make no excuses for my obsession with this story, so there!). And again, Sarah Kempton' s wonderful narration brings the writing to life. She gives each character their own distinctive personality with their own vocalisations and mannerisms, to such a point that you can imagine the book is being played out before your eyes.

If you haven't you haven't read the Timelessness series, why not? This is an absolute gem of a series that keeps going from strength to strength.

A great book - No spoiler review

Like all my reviews it will be spoiler free and concentrate on the ‘Soul’ of the book.

If you are reading this, then there is a very strong chance that you have listened to / read the other two books, so you will know Susana writing style and what to expect. Hence, the question that need to answered is - does she deliver on the promises of the first two books?

The answer is of course yes. Susanna is a highly talented writer and once again has delivered a wonderful tale which builds upon, and adds to, the carefully crafted world she has created and all the character that inhabit it.

Also, since this is an audiobook i have to mention the narrator Sarah Kempton who is her normal brilliant self.

Simply buy this story, make yourself a coffee, find a comfortable chair and enjoy.

I look forward to book 4 and the Novella

Thank you Susana Imaginario : )

Mind-blowing!

Susana Imaginário takes mythology and storytelling to a whole new level. I can't wait for book 4!
Sarah Kempton's narration is flawless, as always. Namrive's voice will stay with me for a while.
