To the gods, humanity is but a pawn in an endless war.
Eliphaz knows this, yet accepts the blessing of a vengeful god obsessed with challenging the Highest, the One being that lords over all others. Powerful abilities beyond any mortal lies within his reach, but at what cost?
For war is brewing, a clash between ancient forces that threatens to tear reality asunder. Eliphaz has a role to play in this conflict; he is the divine instrument by which the lesser gods will be destroyed—that is, if he does not fight against his own fate.
Divine Thorns is the first arc of The Book of Eliphaz, a litrpg that takes place in the ancient Near East and is inspired by the Book of Genesis and other ancient stories.

In the beginning, there were vines.
Do you like well-researched mythology? Do you ever think said mythology could be improved by making it a LitRPG? Do historic myths suddenly make a lot more sense when you realise gods and their followers were competing against each other to make their levels go up? Do you like vines?
If so, this, my friend, is the story for you. Full of viny LitRPG goodness, this story will simultaneously entangle your interest, introduce you to a less popular mythos in contemporary fantasy, and shed new meaning on the word divine.
In the (mercilessly butchered) words of Luke Skywalker, who does not appear in this story at all, 'May the vines be with you'.
