Review by ML - A must-read, a literary fire starter, - July 23, 2014 If you read one book this year, let this be it. In Armageddon and the 4th Timeline, author Don Mardak provides a thought-provoking adventure that will leave you buzzing with its spur-to-action honest and authentic truths. Based on the premise that our societal and global paradigms are preventing us from thriving long-term as a harmonious global population, Armageddon doesn t stop at giving a realistic outlook on the harrowing stakes facing our world today and the problems you won t be able to argue, exist. Rather, it subtly provides a solution set that is beyond what most audiences could ve conceived on their own in an utterly wise, gently probing and completely unforgettable way. Yes, this is a fictional work, but you ll never look at the world the same way again after you ve read this book. The voice of the author is as authentic and joltingly honest as I ve ever read. Well written, fact-based and truly motivating, Armageddon will change you and leave you unable to turn a blind eye any longer to what most of us have successfully ignored for so long: the prosperous future of life as we know it is in jeopardy. And yet, kudos to the author, this is not yet another cliché, harbinger-of-doom, end-times spook fest. The author s skillful storytelling, combined with military, religious, political, mystic and time-travel themes, will leave you feeling you ve witnessed a book whose message and themes come to life and transform the mundane into a spiritual experiences. The story told here transcends the page and characters you meet here will never be forgotten. They could be you, they could be us. My only advice to you when you read this book is this: finish it. Wait until the end, until you ve read all, and then spend a few days letting the author s wisdom sink in before deciding how you feel about this book. Don t shy away from the truths revealed in the first few pages; don t close your eyes to what is going on around you. Open your mind and allow the truths of this revolutionary book blow your mind and then spur you to action. Mr. Mardak, you are a genius. So few books have touched me as deeply and resonated with me on so many levels: spiritually, humanly, as an entertained reader and as an in-awe author as this one did. Well done, well done! --Amazon.com Review
Review by Renee - Not just a book, an experience - December 29, 2014 With most of my reviews I try to start with a summary of the book. However this is one of the few books I am unable to do that with. There is so much going on in this book (in a good way) that it would be hard to come even close to breaking it down in a few sentences. Don Mardak has the uncanny ability to take different, and often difficult, themes and combine them in a way that makes it enjoyable and easy to read. He brings war, time travel, religion, and the supernatural together in a way that feels like this is how it is supposed to be. Armageddon and the 4th Timeline is a book you need to read to believe. It makes you think, it makes you feel, and it makes you question everything you thought you knew. The writing is superb, and the story is excellent. You truly enjoy reading it and sometimes forget you are actually learning and thinking while you are reading. This isn't just a book, it is an experience. And an experience everyone needs to have. Whatever your beliefs, whatever genre you prefer, whatever your feelings are on the themes in this book, it needs to be on your bookshelf. You will not regret it!! --Amazon.com Review
Review by J. Summers - Incredible, thrilling, and rewarding to say the very least!!! - September 11, 2014 Wow! The journey this book took me on was incredible, thrilling, and rewarding to say the very least!!! This is a must-have book for lovers of all genres. I can t see anyone not enjoying this book. However, I think truth seekers such as myself will appreciate it the most! I thoroughly enjoyed Armageddon and the 4th Timeline. Without a doubt it is one of my top 5 favorite books, and I read a lot. Don Mardak clearly has a mastermind! To be able to combine so many different elements and put them into a thought-provoking story is phenomenal. I definitely commend him for this successful attempt on a seemingly real, mind-blowing masterpiece. This is indeed a best-seller! From the very beginning of the story and until the end, readers will be hooked. At the start, the author opens with a timeline of significant events leading to the nuclear threat that would demise the world as we know it today. The contents thereafter, are that of an exciting adventure! You will be anxiously turning every page, and despite its title, the concept of the book stands far apart from the others deemed similar to it. Featuring time travel, the threat of a nuclear disaster, intriguing characters, and special spiritual realms, I think it's safe to say that this book is in a category of its own. This story moves fast, but is very thorough, and reads effortlessly. If you are looking for a book to give you lots to ponder on and entertain you, then you have met your match. I'm still blown away!!! --Amazon.com Review
