A dazzling look at Mayan mythology incarnate from New York Times bestselling author Steve AltenFor two thousand years, the Mayan Calendar has prophesied the end of mankind on a date equating to December 21st, 2012. As that day approaches, greed, corruption, economic collapse, and violence seem to be pushing our species to the predicted brink of disaster. But there is another doomsday threat looming in our near future, a very real threat that can wipe out not only humanity but our entire planet.Phobos: Mayan Fear, Steve Alten’s third book in the Mayan prophecy-based Domain series, is a doomsday rollercoaster ride of adventure that 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 it seems, nor is human existence. The ticking clock of physicality that begins at conception and terminates with our final breath is neither the end nor the beginning, but an elaborate ruse constructed as a test.We are failing miserably.Available Formats: CD, MP3 CD, Digital Rental11.9 hrs • Feb/14/2017 • Unabridged

What happens to us when we die? Is there really an afterlife? Do we possess a soul? Does God exist? For Michael Gabriel, the answers to these questions lie in another dimension, a realm of eternity where there is no concept of time, only pure life force, pure existence, and pure evil.Now, as was foretold five hundred years ago in the Mayan Popol Vuh, Michael’s sons are born: white-haired, azure-eyed Jacob, blessed with inhuman physical prowess, intelligence, and insight into the cosmos, and dark-haired Immanuel, who refuses his genetic calling, desiring only a normal life. Only the combined powers of the Gabriel twins can resurrect their savior-father and save the human race from an eternity of repeating its own self-destruction.But on this fateful day another child is born. Exposed to the uglier side of existence and empowered by her posthuman genetics, the beautiful, schizophrenic Lilith will travel down a darker path that leads to eon-distant Xibalba (the Mayan version of Hell) and an epic battle of good versus evil and the final destiny of the human race.Available Formats: CD, MP3 CD, Digital Rental17.5 hrs • Nov/15/2016 • Unabridged
An asteroid impacts Earth, forever changing life on our planet. Only the object wasn’t an asteroid …For thirty-two years, archaeologist Julius Gabriel investigated the Mayan calendar, a 2,500-year-old enigma of time and space that predicts humanity will perish on December 21, 2012 (the winter solstice). Julius believes that certain mysterious sites: the Great Pyramid of Giza, Stonehenge, the giant desert drawings of the Nazca Plateau, the temple of Angkor Wat, the Pyramid of the Sun, and the key site—the Kukulcán Pyramid at Chichén Itzá in the Yucatán Peninsula, site of the ancient asteroid impact—represent pieces of a global puzzle linked to the salvation of our species. Ridiculed by his peers, Julius dies before he can solve the doomsday prophecy. Now, only one person can prevent our annihilation—Julius’ son, Michael, a patient locked up in a Miami mental asylum.Miami, 2012. Psychology major Dominique Vazquez reports to a Miami asylum to complete her graduate internship. The new director assigns her to a special patient—Mick Gabriel, a paranoid schizophrenic with a high IQ.

What Dominique doesn’t realize is that she represents Mick’s last hope of saving humanity.Fall equinox, 2012. As it has done for a thousand years, a serpent’s shadow appears on the northern balustrade of the Kukulcán Pyramid. As a rare galactic alignment occurs, a deep space radio transmission reaches Earth, activating the remnants of an object buried long ago in the Gulf of Mexico.
