But to anyone who has ever hoped Gods are benevolent beings----well, there is not much evidence of that. Even the notion of Kings who were the emissaries of the Gods being 'shepherds' who watch the flocks (Jesus wasn't the first, the Pharaohs also considered themselves shepherds), well, a shepherd protects the flock from the wolves and elements but when the time comes, he shears their wool and eats some of them.
This of course, eventually leads back to the darker aspect of the worship of the Gods, but, I'm not there yet. At the moment I'm still researching all they did to each other--which was just as bad as what they did to humans (if that's any comfort). Rape, kidnapping, torture and murder were commonplace amongst family members in their quest for supremacy.
One part I am happy about is chapter on Horus, Ra and Seth and the description of the flying machines they used. While I am unsure whether Ra corresponds to Ningizidda or to another of the Annunaki Gods, (there are similarities to him and another deity), at least the machines themselves and the wars match the Sumerian accounts and what I added to my book 'Serpent Priestess of the Annunaki'. I'm really glad it is so similar as the book I'm writing now is about Egypt and Atlantis with Horus, Hathor and others as the lead characters. It would be highly aggravating to have gotten it wrong in the first book
