Overview

A mysterious artifact from an ancient relic once belonging to Alexander the Great is found on the illegal antiquities market and the race to save the world begins. Only Major Donovan Stone and his elite hometeam of Omega Sector operatives can prevent a catastrophe from occurring.
But, they have formidable opposition: a rogue military force headed by the former Director of Homeland Security, Five-Star General, Zachariah Combs, and his second in command, ex-Navy SEAL Team Six Commander, Admiral Richard Alberts- who himself shares a past with Major Stone. A past which either man would be willing to kill the other for.
What no one is unaware of is the fact that, when this simple quest begins, it is only the first of the ten ancient relics which must brought to the Altar of Judgment, in Tikal, Guatemala. Once there an ancient puzzle needs to be solved, thus securing a sacred document lost to the world for nearly five-hundred years.
Using the mysterious Nostradamus Manuscript, Stone and his team will need to survive ancient traps, solve harrowing riddles and try not to die in the process. All before the start of the last Total Solar Eclipse of 2012.
With both time, an army of well-financed mercenaries, and thousand year-old booby traps around every corner, can Stone and his team find the ten relics before the prophesized deadline?
Or, will they fall into enemy hands?
Worse yet, if they do, what will become of the fate of the world?
All these questions can be answered in The Nostradamus Revelation…

Nostradamus Revelation: An Omega Sector Thriller is a very exciting,riveting,fast moving action packed book.Your mind can actually observe where and what the characters are doing. You can also imagine what the artifacts look like. It captured my attention, I found it very hard to put the book down. The author has a very vivid interpretation of ancient history, artifacts and current times. If you like James Bond then you'll love the book like I did.

I stayed up all night reading this; I couldnt have put it down even if I had tried! The plot was riveting and the charecter development engrossing. I got both this & the Omega short story interlude at the same time. When I finished both I went straight back to B & N to get the sequels but was sad to see they aren't out yet. Please hurry Mr. Pauletti!!

Pauletti used well known ancient sites and historical people as the framework for his modern day fictional tale. My apologies to the author for using a comparison, but if you like Dan Brown's work you will enjoy this book very much. I'm looking foward to the next one.

This was a page-turner of an adventure. If you like Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, David Hagberg, etc. then you will enjoy Mr Pauletti. It was a fast-paced enjoyable read.

If you like Indiana Jones, this is a fun, exciting and fast moving story. You will also learn a lot about various myths and legends. Just a fun summer read.

Great fast moving story. Enough tech stuff to make it real but not to much to slow it down.

The plot was a bit too far-fetched and convoluted for me. Rogue government agents and genius archaeologists abound for those who want to invest the time to wade through this.

This is about as good as free books get -- long, engaging, good action and interesting history. My only complaint is the author really could have used a good editor -- there were some inconsistencies and spelling/grammatical errors that would have been easy to correct before publishing. Overall, this was a great read.

This is more a history lesson of mythology...could drop about 400 unnecessary pages and book would be just as entertaining! Skip the history lesson please!!!

Totally enjoyed the Nostradamus Revelation. Stone and his Omega team are called upon by the U.S. government to search for and retrieve the necessary relics mentioned in a Nostradamus manuscript to prevent the end of the world. Of course, nothing can be simple when prevent world destruction. Stone and his team are constantly dogged by an elite rouge U.S. Seal Team. The goal of this group is to collect the relic to then rule the world. Worse yet they are led by the man that killed Stone's father. Adventure, intrigue and historical fact expertly entwined with fiction produce a wonderful story that has the reader on the edge of their seat

In short, this book is not worth the trouble. The premise is implausible, the situations are cartoonish, the writing is uninvolving, and the editing is simply the worst I have ever seen. There are 5 - 10 grammatic, punctuation, or spelling errors on every page, and many of the misspellings are systematic -- the same mistake appears over and over, such as people graduating "Magma" cum Laude. A waste of good electrons.

A blend of James Bond and Indiana Jones in the form of an elite military team move non-stop through a series of quests for ancient relics found around the globe in order to prevent a catastrophy. This is an imaginative action packed story that is sometimes a bit far-fetched and over-the-top but enjoyable none-the-less. There were numerous grammatical errors and poor editing - "passed" instead of past, "laminated" instead of illuminated, etc. However it was generally easy to tell what was meant and it did not detract from the story line much. Hopefully the author (or editor?) will run a grammar check program on the sequel - which I will watch for and get, especially if it is a free nook book as this was.

a complete rip-off of Indiana Jones, National Treasure, and any other like film. Very poor editing and grammar. Who is supposed to proof read these things? Misuse of words: rouge instead of rogue. Found myself flipping thru the last hundred or so pages just to get it finished. Will NOT be reading the sequel.

The author shares a lot of interesting archaeological information about ancient cultures - but to extreme excess - over 800 pages of a repetitive plot ("enter pyramid... solve puzzle... kill 30 Navy SEALS, twist hidden mechanism to gain access to treasure..."). I still haven't put it down, hoping it leads to an interesting conclusion. What I absolutely don't get is his strong bias toward Marines (not bad) and villification of Navy SEALS - painting them as inept cannon fodder. Since when is the enemy under your own flag?

I only got partway into this and had to stop. Just... no. The C-130 was the last straw. I really wish, if authors were going tobuse actual military hardware, they would learn what could actually FIT. That on top of the poor, apparently barely edited writing... oy. I'm just glad I didn't pay for this.
