Book Description

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 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs Experienced Editor September 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The author's passion and interesting ideas are evident, but so is his lack of writing experience. There are enough grammatical errors to make one wince. but the author's lack of sophistication in his writing skills made this, for me, unreadable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, poor execution October 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author has a great imagination and has come up with a concept that really piqued my interest. The execution, however, didn't live up to my expectations for a published novel and it felt more like an early draft. Character development and story progression seemed very hollow, and there were so many spelling and grammatical errors (nothing to do with US vs. UK English) that it became distracting.

Another poster mentioned that the book read like something written by a high school student, and I have to agree. At the same time, I believe that many novels start out this way -- a rough draft of a concept, with detail and depth filled in as the author's creative energy is fed by the developing story.

I have to believe that some of the raving reviews here are bogus. Mr. Eason has great ideas, he's just got to work on polish...and probably get a better editor.

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating November 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Good idea behind plot. Long, run on sentences make reading confusing and frustrating. Lack of proper punctuation adds to the confusion.

The idea was good but this rocket never left the launch pad.
I gave it two stars much of the first half of the book just
drags on and at times it is boring.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Idea but... October 5, 2012
By Ansible
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot is a good one but there were too many aspects of the story that were just not believable, even for sci fi. For one, as each new person is introduced to the quest, he or she signs on without questioning how preposterous the quest is - the search for ancient technology to save the world led by an alien. Modes of travel became a bit rustic as the story went on too. It starts with flying and driving from place to place and devolves to buying ancient freighters that need 2 weeks of work to get them going and hikes across dangerous places. Then at the very end we find out that the alien who has been helping the rescue team has been using an underground transportation system -- why didn't she bring the team through that system? Also there were many areas in the story where the author jumped ahead by stating that such and such happened rather than continuing in story-telling style. This made it a bit choppy.

All in all, not a bad read but could have been better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too predictable May 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This mixture of science fiction and science fact was a little too predictable for me, with certain characters somewhat type cast and generalised. The sex was completely unnecessary and wasn't warranted in the story line, it just made me go 'what?'

3.0 out of 5 stars 7th Age March 11, 2013
By Topam83
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An unique variation on the end of the world, but I was not that happy with the ending and it was a bit confusing too. Overall I enjoyed the book, but it rambled a little bit and get it on the Kindle, don't pay for a hard-copy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Facts.vs Story Line February 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
At first I thought I had another 5 star book, some disappointment set in at about a third of the way through the book. The fact that each site our hero, Nick, visited was so much like the ones that came before (with very few facts, archialogical Information, character buildup, or more story line twists) left me almost wanting to give up on the book,THE SEVENTH AGE. However the real life situation Concerning the "Mayan Calendar" and the "End of the world as we know it" on December 21, 2012, and my interest in what & how & the tale Mr. Eason was spinning would hold, made me finish it. I am glad I did! But I hope & expect better on Jack Eason's next book.f

3.0 out of 5 stars A good story but too simplistic,
Although the story was entertaining, i found the writing was not detailed enough. Also the ending left too much unsaid.

If an author will not invest in qualified proof-reading before publication it is disrespectful to his readers and we should not buy his books.

This book was mired down with too much unnecessary description. Not enough meat and too much sauce. I would not waste my time reading anything else by this author.
