Phobos Mayan Fear is one of Steve Altens best, well worth the 7 year wait Can t wait for the next in the series The test of existence is not a test of perfection, it is a test of transformation Steve Alten I just finished the 3rd book of my favorite trilogy This book took me 3 years to find it and, funny enough, found it as a Spanish used copy in FranceIt is my guilty book pleasure, as it s based on how Mayan descendants save the world around 2012 Of course, nothing happens in Guatemala Mexico All happens in the United States thats why is my guilty pleasure However, besides that, everythin The

wormholes on its literature, defying past present future and taking the reader through unexpected turn arounds Worth the read of the three of them And who knows Maybe the Hunahpu s gen is indeed a

still couldn t stop myself from diving right into book 3 Oh, well At least PHOBOS was a definite improvement over the previous book, albeit a slight one Maybe that s because you don t even really get to the story until about the last third of the novel which, coincidentally, is when PHOBOS really starts to suck Before that, it s mostly just a lot of reiteration of what went on earlier in the series, as well as a plethora of Alten s paranoid ramblings on everything from atom smashers and UFO s to Big Oil and Kabbalistic interpretations of the Bible Apparently, there will eventually be a book 4 in the series I hope to God that doesn t happen because then I will probably feel compelled to read it, too, and will likely end up hating myself over my inexplicable need to consume every last morsel of Alten s writing Book three, well yes of course I was hooked, I had to buy all three, and now it ends with to be continued Took me forever to read, not that it was not good, but it is not as

was also off last month at Cape Canaveral visiting the base on a tour, where all the first rockets of our space program went off, to view and immerse myself into our space history Also got to watch a rocket take off the next day, right over our heads Awesome, but not as exciting as the Shuttle The base tour is not the Kennedy space center tour, it is different from Kennedy Space Center, and you only get to see these historic sites if you sign up for the Light House Tour So if you are a space fan, check this out A best kept secret It is real sad how everything is crumbling and yet, this is our space history This book delves into our space history, and many of the chapters of this story take place in this area This book is a continuation of the prior two and does confuse the reader, we go back and forth in time, and back and forth with people, and history has been changed, and if the reader leaves the book for a few weeks, one may have to go back and read other chapters again, as one does go, WHAT Give me a break here, that s not like the first book, and then a chapter later, that is explained with, how history has changed because ofwhatever So no, I did not enjoy this bookas much as the first one, or the second one Manny goes on to save the world, or did he, all rather confusing The Nordics pay a visit in this book, I was so glad to see the author include the Nordics as so many writers just go with the Greys A reader might get lost in this story, I almost did Can I really tell you what the story was about, nope, still confused Read it for yourself 3rd book of a

scares him because it could actually happen One element being the Large Hadron Collider It s potential to create a black hole that destroys the planet Another being that lurking under Old Faithful is a ticking time bomb that if set off, will bring around the 6th ELE for Earth Extinction Level Event like the one that wiped out the dinosaurs This book is about 3 years old as I write this I didn t know about the caldera under Yellowstone til recently and I agree with Steve It s terrifying to think of Reminds one to live each day as if it s your last Returning to the books, I m reminded of the author s Meg series about megaladons It s 4 5 books long plus a novella length prequel The first 2 books were good But the quality of the story diminished and I abandoned the series I still like the author and recommend Domain as well as the first couple of Meg books but I ll have to remember that sequels are not always gold with his books Third volume in his Mayan doomsday set there is another book alluded to at the end of this one, so he s not done The first book in the series as I recall was straight doomsday stuff, with some fun SF touches The second is a continuation of that, building

confusing Alten s last book before this was not a part of his usual fare MEG the ancient megeladon series or Domain the Mayan set it was a religious book about his studies of ancient Jewish wisdom, and what it meant for mankind I never was able to readthan a small part This book brings in some of that mysticism, and combines it with the Mayan prophecies about 2012, and the ancient race, the Nazca drawings, and time travel lots of it It gets confusing, since one of the characters used a different name through part of the book, channeled an ancient Mayan god, reached out into an inner consciousness higher plane, and speak with people present and past and also showed up before he was born That everyone involved takes all this in stride is hard to swallow esp as it , leads to a bunch of ET stuff, etc Although I enjoyed it, I thought the first book, Domain, was better, and that this one relied way too heavily on time travel paradoxes and the ancient beliefs and less of his characters, etc But, if you don t mind some grand conspiracies theories, and I mean GRAND, and a lot of whisking back and forth without dates at times to anchor which time period you are in, this one s for you As you can see by my rating, yet notes on the book, I was conflicted about it It took a while to get through, but some of that may have been a need to stop in the middle for two days, and my short memory span, so that things got confusing for me, as I struggled to remember what was going on and who was who You need to be sharp for this one Phobos is the third book of the Domain Trilogy

your head as to what was going on.Luckily for us this third book is an improvement on the second but not by much, the first half is again over complicated nonsense full of pseudo religious mumbo jumbo but the second half finally gets things back on track and manages to be an entertaining time travel story that brings together elements of the Mayan doomsday prophecy along with plenty of sci fi but there us still far too much religious undertones for my liking It s clear that Alten has an excellent imagination but his editor needs to rein him in when it comes to over complicating situations and including his religious ideals.The ending is satisfactory enough, if a little underwhelming and Alten has clearly indicated that there will be a fourth book Personally I think he should give up on this series and go back to what he does best, writing shark stories A dazzling look at Mayan mythology incarnate from New York Times bestselling author Steve AltenFor two thousand years, the Mayan

follows Immanuel Gabriel to the end of the world and back again for one last shot at salvation During Immanuel s journey with his deceased grandfather, archaeologist Julius Gabriel, Julius reveals everything the Mayans knew and feared from the secrets of creation that predate the Big Bang to the existence of extraterrestrials that have come to Earth to save our species The universe is not what

I have given it is to sum up the whole series nothing great but at least I can say I have read it.With this final book, I felt as though it was a case of taking everything that had been built so far and throwing it straight out of the window I do not mean this merely in the sense of it is the clich time altering ending, but in the sense that even characters seemed to be completely different from prior books It was as though the drastic changes in the characters came about simply so that the story would go in the desired direction I could have, possibly, lived with such a thing except the reasons given for a lot of the characters made no sense at all Plus, a lot of these changes, because they were so drastic, seemed to leave characters rather flat Where had their individuality gone Alas, such a thing seemed to be necessary for the whole timeline change to occur We all saw it coming, just as we have in many movies and books I have no problem with this device, as it is not the worst one out there, yet it was not executed as well as it could have been Too many things were thrown at us, certain events not as amusing as they were probably intended to be.Overall, I was disappointed by this last book Actually, I was disappointed by the whole series It had such potential yet it all got lost somewhere down the line I think the hardest part for me is the to be continued ending to this trilogy I get that it is due to the changes that occurred in history, leaving our mind open to what could possibly come to be, yet a part of me is fearful that another book may come With the scariest part being that I m the kind of person who would go ahead and pick up the book despite knowing better.Basically, if you have started the series it is something you have to finish yet
