Product Description

Review

'With the storytelling sensibilities of Crichton and Cussler, Alten sure knows how to write a thriller' Kevin J. Anderson.

From the Back Cover

The prize was our salvation. The price was his soul. After sacrificing himself to preserve the human race, Michael Gabriel is imprisoned and a torturous, purgatory-like dimension in the Mayan netherworld. The Mayan prophecy states that the Hero Twins - Michael's sons Jacob and Immanuel, born to his wife Dominique the year after his entrapment - must travel to the Mayan realm in their twentieth year to free and resurrect him. Yet it also carries a warning. Born on the same day as the twins is a dark force that threatens their destiny. This, the Abomination - the female yin to their yang - represents evil in its purest form, and will not yield until their succumb to its temptation.

Please note The Mayan Resurrection is the direct sequel to The Mayan Prophecy and the following review will likely contain spoilers for those that have not read the first novel.

The prize was our salvation. The price was his soul.

After sacrificing himself to preserve the human race, Michael Gabriel is imprisoned in a torturous, purgatory-like dimension in the Mayan netherworld.

The Mayan prophecy states that the Hero Twins - Michael's sons Jacob and Immanuel, born to his wife Dominique the year after his entrapment - must travel to the Mayan realm in their twentieth year to free and resurrect him.

Yet it also carries a warning. Born on the same day as the twins is a dark force that threatens their destiny. This, the Abomination - the female yin to their yang - represents evil in its purest form, and will not yield until they succumb to its temptation.

The 21st December 2012, the winter solstice has come and gone and the prophecised apocalypse has been averted by Michael Gabriel. He has saved all of humanity by sacrificing himself. The Mayan Resurrection picks up a few months after the events in the climax of The Mayan Prophecy and follows the birth, childhood and adolescence of Michael's twin sons.

Michael and Dominique take a back seat in this novel, as it is Jacob and Immanuel (Manny) that the story focuses on. As sons of the world's savior, they grow up under intense media scrutiny. The Twins are worshiped by some, and derided by others.

The brothers are polar opposites of one another. Though they are both hyper-intelligent, Jacob is completely consumed with his mission to travel to the stars and free his father. Manny, meanwhile, has no desire to accept that his fate is predetermined.

After reading the first one i couldn't wait to crack open the second. I have put it back on the shelf half way through reading it and believe me it was a struggle just getting that far! The plot follows on from the first way too slowly and just feels like he's rambling,there's none of the excited or thrills of the first book.Very dissappointed in the book, in fact it is the first book i've actually not finished and persevered with.

This book is not worth reading. Boring, negative. Read it if you'd like to become in a bad mood. Book one was quite ok, this one is not. After reading 80 pages I started to jump to see if it would become any better, but I'm afraid not. Spend your time on something more positive and enjoyable. The book is grey, has no heart. I am canceling my pre order for the last book.

By I. R. Kerr TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Sept. 2012
Format: Paperback
After finishing the excellent first book I waited a few weeks before starting on the sequel.

*** possible spoilers for the first novel here ***

Starting shortly after the end of the first volume the story involves Jacob and Immanuel the twin children of Michael Gabriel and Dominique Vazquez and an ancient prophecy
Twenty One years after the world almost ended on 21 Dec 2012 it is prophesised that Michael's children will meet the Abomination (their female equivalent) in a battle that will decide Earth's future, spanning the 21 years leading up to confrontation in over 600 pages.
The tale starts off promising enough with a few old scores from the first book being settled and the twins taking different paths in life, Jacob doing his best to prepare for the prophecy and the quieter Immanuel preferring to try and live a normal life. Meanwhile their polar opposite Lilith born of evil and raised to know nothing but abuse and despair sets on a course that ties her to the Mabus family and Nostradamus' prediction for the Antichrist. Lilith is the most interesting character in the book by far and almost all of the more outstanding sections involve her in some way.
The very nature of the book means there are plenty slower patches as it sets the scene for future events and we skip forward on occasion but as good as the book sometimes is it fails to keep up the pace and goes off into wild tangents involving not only the ancient Mayan legends but plenty political and sexual intrigue, remote viewing, climate change and control (particularly hurricanes) wormholes, interstellar travel, genetic engineering, time paradoxes and one really credible end of world scenario which is hinted at but sadly never fully developed here.

I really quite enjoyed this sequel. I found the first half of the book really good. You get to read how the Gabriel twins grow up in thier hidden bunker home. The books tells about the twins at seven years old then fourteen and later in thier twentith year. Its when Jacob is seven he meets the abobination whoyou realy feel sorry for, its not a nice read that bit. Its a good story to start with but in the middle of the book I found dragged on a bit, such as explaining about futuristic rules in American football for example. There are parts in the book like this where the author starts explaining the history and the size of buildings etc. To be honest is very boring and as reader you just want to get on with the story. The techo stuff about the starship Balam is good. Although alien pods? I thought that's when it gets a bit stupid. Also the science bits about Yellowstone super volcano is very well wrote. I just found the ending not thrilling enough and a bit too sci-fi, it really is a bit crazy with aliens, wormholes etc. Still trying to work out the ending at what the author was trying to imply about Mars moon Phobos. Again, you get a sneak preview of the third book at the end and I am debating wether its worth getting that or not.
