16 Feb 2012 The Mayan Trilogy

It is 2047: fourteen years since Jacob Gabriel descended into the Mayan netherworld, while his twin brother turned from their chosen path, opting to remain behind.

Immanuel Gabriel - still running from the forces that hunt his bloodline - believes his actions proved his role in the Mayan prophecy to be nothing but an ancient myth. Now, though, he will realize his mistake.

As the prophecy begins to repeat itself and mankind once again faces annihilation, Immanuel learns there was only ever one person with the power to end the cycle of destruction: himself.

2.0 out of 5 stars So far, so bad 1 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, I am 100 pages into this book so far and I am not impressed. It so far looks like a rehash of the first two books - a catch-up if you will.I havent picked this book up for 3 days now and am not particularly missing it. I find it very hard going and disjointed. I may finish it, I may not - for me that isnt the sign of a book that is going places...

**Update** I have trudged my way through about 40 more pages and it has got better. It is still very random and rambling. I honestly cannot see how a coherent ending can be recovered from all the loose ends I have read so far.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3rd book in ongoing series 20 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
Three successive generations of the Gabriel family have now been involved in the race to save the Earth from itself. This novel finally brings them all together, no mean feat when at least one of them has been dead for decades. The action moves from 2047 back to 1990 and then forward again to the eve of the apocalyptic event the Mayans predicted in 2012.

Immanuel `Manny' Gabriel is the focus for much of this novel, this is a nice touch as he spent much of The Mayan Resurrection (book two) overshadowed by his sibling, Jacob. There are some good moments where Manny gets the opportunity to revisit some key scenes from the previous novels, but the author has subtly tweaked them to give a slightly differing perspective than before.

Time travel has always struck me as a tricky story element to get right, there is always the possibility that you are going to lose your audience if you make things overly complex when you are write about it. Time loops, past lives, parallel time lines, temporal paradoxes and the like seem to exist just to trip an author up. Alten manages to handle this all quite well and I was able to follow the various cross-dimensional action without any degree of difficulty.

The same criticism I leveled at book two is still true in book three. At times there is a distinct over indulgence of fact that interrupts the flow of the fiction. Don't get me wrong, I understand that a certain amount of exposition is required but there does seem to be an awful lot of it. Like its predecessor, this novel is very nearly six hundred pages long and I think it could have been trimmed down a bit. Losing some of the more detailed explanations would not have done any harm.

That small gripe aside I did actually enjoy the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars makes you wonder 8 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would recommend that you buy the three books at once, otherwise you will loose the thread. Makes a good holiday read, you can immerse yourself in the plot. Really gets the old grey matter going. Is it real? Has or is this really going on? No one will ever tell us if it is. Will make you look at life differently, and questioning. You won't take things in life at face value again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its Okay 12 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm usually quite generous in my star ratings on Amazon,but this book was so far fetched compared to the first 2
and they were enough.
Don't get me wrong I enjoyed them but sometimes I got so lost. One minute I am in present day South Amercia and the
next in some strange Dimension which I can't pronounce let alone spell.
Having said that I will probaly get the fourth part when and if it comes out just to find out what happens.
