The Mayan clock stopped predicting events beyond 2012. Why did it not continue beyond that date?

Rebel archaeologist Nick Palmer experiences an almost unnoticed event at Stonehenge during the summer solstice celebration of 2011, which he attends along with hundreds of others, that worries him greatly. He is made aware through a blog, of a sinister organization known as the ‘Order’, that are seemingly bent on preventing his every move to discover the reason behind the worrying event.

During his voyage of discovery, Nick is tracked across the world by an enigmatic entity that has been trapped here on Earth for over twenty-five thousand years, awaiting the discovery of the event by what she refers to as a ‘surface-dweller’. Together with her and the few people he trusts implicitly, they set out to prevent the alarmingly inevitable catastrophic conclusion that will affect not only the Earth, but the whole Solar System’s very existence.

Jack’s latest best selling science fiction novel is a tale told in the present day. Beside its topical theme concerning the dire events in 2012 predicted by the Mayan clock, it is also a story full of mystery and adventure in which the tortured love story of a human and an alien female gradually unfolds.

Excerpt
A group of three new age hippies stood off to one side of the main crowd. To Nick’s alert eyes they were obviously not mainstream participants.

Something about their furtive discussion encouraged his natural curiosity and made him edge over to where they stood; close, but not close enough to make them aware of his eavesdropping.

As the minutes ticked by and the excitement grew among the hundreds of participants, Nick listened to the hushed conversation between the three hippies.

Milo rolled himself a massive joint, lit it, inhaled the heady herb smoke, and passed it along to Rebo, who took a long drag before passing it to the third member of the group Sunflower.

“Are you sure about your facts man?” Sunflower asked as he exhaled the spent cannabis smoke, creating a series of inwardly spiraling smoky halo’s in the still air of the early morning.
Rebo took back the toke and inhaled before replying to Sunflower’s question. “Sure I’m sure man, wait and see,” he said, wheezing his reply through clenched teeth, trying to keep the intoxicating smoke in his mouth and lungs for as long as possible.

Milo looked toward the east for the first sign of predawn light before the sun appeared above the horizon. “If it does happen like you say Rebo, man it will blow people’s minds,” Milo muttered quietly as he kept his eyes glued to the horizon.

Nick shook his head, bemused by the seemingly nonsensical conversation as he moved closer to the main body of the crowd, as eager as everyone else to celebrate the solstice.

The appointed time of sunrise came and went. The seconds slowly ticked by. A murmur of anticipation in the crowd grew in intensity. Somewhere in the gloom, a reveler was slowly banging a drum accompanying a group who were chanting their welcome to the sun.

What the hell was going on? Where was the sun? Nick looked back to where Milo, Sunflower and Rebo stood. Rebo’s face broke out in a look of cannabis fogged triumph. Milo was blearily staring eastward. “Wow man, it’s just like you said!” Sunflower just stood in stunned silence, mouth open.

Fully fifty seconds after sunrise should have begun; the sun finally appeared on the distant horizon. To the vast majority of the solstice witnesses, the delay went unnoticed, unappreciated. But not by Nick, who like Sunflower, briefly stood dumbstruck, nor Ithis who watched unobserved, from where she was morphed into the side of one of the largest standing stones that made up the outer ring of the ancient henge. Somehow time had slowed, but why? She knew and was greatly concerned.


Professional Reviews

This is a meaty book
This book is not for light readers. It is heavily couched with geography, history, archeology, science, science-fiction, knowledge of machines and items of destruction as well as...heck, let's just throw in the kitchen sink...an alien and love story.

It is obvious the amount of time and research that went into this novel, yes I said "NOVEL" showing us the type of knowledge of a real teacher as well as author. Using the Mayan clock as his basis, Jack Eason weaves a tale of globe trotting, intrigue and mayhem. (I can easily see a movie similar in style to The Da Vinci Code here). His style is descriptive, even if a bit too verbose at times, slowing down the pace of the plot, but well worth sticking it through, as he delivers: wit, humor, the foibles of us humans and the satisfying conclusion of a race against time itself.


Great read
Jack Eason combines his knowledge of history and human experiences to write wonderful science-fiction novels that are as exciting as they are illuminating... Enjoy!

Epic Archaeological Adventure
The Seventh Age is the book to read if you like archaeological mysteries mixed with the supernatural and SciFi, and it never hurts to throw in an evil religious cult either. Jack Eason's knowledge of archaeology and ancient mysteries shines through in this book so relevant in the year 2012. I highly recommend this book
