Una impactante novela de acción que recrea la legendaria civilización maya

21 de diciembre de 2012. La fecha de nacimiento del Sexto Sol, de acuerdo con las profecías mayas, es el punto de partida de esta impactante novela de acción y suspenso que recrea la legendaria civilización maya, desde sus orígenes en el continente perdido de la Atlántida, y su milenario conocimiento que sobrevive a través de ritos y tradiciones chamánicas.

De la mano del autor, conocemos a un grupo de científicos de la NASA que enfrenta el inminente colapso climático global que amenaza con socavar los cimientos de nuestra sociedad. En este escenario, que refleja la realidad actual, este grupo de exploradores enfrentará el conflicto existente entre un mundo centrado exclusivamente en el dominio político y económico y un mundo que lucha por restablecer el equilibrio con su entorno natural para encontrar el camino hacia el desarrollo de laconciencia individual y colectiva.

J.L. Murra presenta una visión realista y crítica acerca de los grandes problemas de nuestro tiempo (el calentamiento global, la devastación ecológica, la crisis financiera internacional, los desastres naturales, las epidemias biológticas). Asimismo, muestra el camino de los sueños lúcidos, los viajes de conciencia y la comprensión del carácter sagrado de nuestro Sol, supremo sustentador y regulador de vida.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION December 12th, 2012, the date in which Mayan prophecies mark as the beginning of an era, the birth of the Sixth Sun, is the starting point for this novel. In its pages, the author presents a critical and realistic look at the greatest issues of our time (global warming, the destruction of our environment, international monetary crisis, natural disasters, health epidemics, etc.). Murra also brings to life the legendary Mayan Civilization, their sophisticated knowledge of astronomy and their advanced spiritual awareness. The plot moves through different times and settings: the lost civilization of Atlantis, NASA investigators, a group of explorers at an archeological zone, and inhabitants of the archetypical bustling city.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Murra's first novel is a bizarre mishmash of theories rich in Mayan prophecy and pre-Hispanic history. The Earth's axis has shifted, and the ice caps are melting, causing giant tsunamis and earthquakes. Coinciding with the birth of the sixth Sun, the last cycle of the Mayan calendar, these changes are prophetic signs of the nearing end of the world. A cryptic inscription—written on a parchment found within the skeletal structure of an antique desk—could save the world from a global catastrophe, but only a group of scientists stranded in the Mexican jungle, somewhere in the Yucatan peninsula, can decipher the text. Predictable yet intriguing, this narrative guides the spectator through the process of lucid dreaming, a form of consciousness achieved by the Shamans in order to obtain insight and supernatural powers. Surprisingly, this phenomenon becomes a centralized theme, linking each protagonist to a foreseeable and chaotic outcome. There is a lesson to be learned, or so the author greatly implies: Will humanity thwart tragedy before it is too late? Though the novel reads like a crude mockup of a Hollywood film, it is compelling. Recommended as a secondary holding for public libraries, as well as large bookstores.—Rick Villalobos, Villa Park P.L., IL
