NEW YORK - At the core of Adin Kachisi's riveting new novel, Rise of the Anakim: Tablets of Destiny (published by AuthorHouse), are one man's travels across four continents in a desperate attempt to save the planet from apocalyptic extinction by both the acts of man and the vengeful hands of nature. In a post-9/11 world, Rise of the Anakim: Tablets of Destiny opens with a devastating mistake made by one man, Richard Mingler, a member of the ancient secret society of the Order of Kingu who chooses to unlock an inter-dimensional portal on the very grounds of the World Trade Center that had once kept Zamariel, a monstrous angelic being from entering this world. Zamariel has been brought for one reason only: to find a set of lost ancient keys. It is the year 2009, and the planet is experiencing global catastrophes ranging from earthquakes, volcanoes, floods and a social unrest that threatens to topple any illusion of order. It is in this atmosphere that Ethan Moore, a college professor in Harlem, travels with one of his favorite students, Rick, to Georgia in order to visit Rick's Native American uncle. Upon meeting Rick's uncle, he is also introduced to other Creek Native American elders who reveal the ancient prophecies of a purification of humanity as they enter a new age. Feeling a fated connection with his visit, the elders take Ethan to a secret cave where they unveil ancient stone tablets with prophetic inscriptions on them, commissioning Ethan to find the three missing crystal keys hidden around the globe in order to save the planet from destruction. Led by instinct alone, Ethan's mission takes him first to Ireland and then Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and finally Korea in a mesmerizing quest which forces him to confront enormous challenges and inexplicable mysteries that test his faith, his beliefs, his academic knowledge and his very idea of reality. While traveling through these foreign lands, he must elude dark, criminal assassins working for the Order of Kingu and other ancient cults determined to bring about the apocalyptic extinction of humanity. Having been transformed in his consciousness and successful in his quest, Ethan returns home and joins the ceremony to unlock the planet's regenerating energy potential with the crystal keys. At the dawn of new life for the planet, Ethan must face one final battle with Zamariel. Will Ethan be able to save the human race from destruction? Will humanity appreciate the gift they have been given or will a new, more corrupted system emerge? Rise of the Anakim: Tablets of Destiny is a mind-awakening experience and action-packed adventure that chronicles the journey and the struggle of humanity to survive in spite of supernatural adversity. Created to provoke, inspire and educate its readers as it explores the past, present and future possibilities for humanity, Rise of the Anakim: Tablets of Destiny is full of information about ancient history, folklore, contemporary issues, metaphysics and different cultures worldwide.

Great science fiction novel. Deals with human survival in a 2012 apocalyptic scene. The main character is commissioned by some Native American shaman to look for the Keys of Destiny. He then travels to Europe, Africa and Asia looking for these keys. There he battles the illuminati and some fallen angels interested in the extinction of humanity. The last chapters deal with the fight between regular humans and elites who are controlling the planet and doing some crazy genetic engineering projects, mixing humans and animals.

When a novel has a bibliography, you know you are about to embark on a journey that aims to separate fact from fiction! Rise of the Anakim: Tablets of Destiny is Adin Kachisi's fourth novel. He delves deep the ancient cultures of the world, showing how they connect present-day societies and current events. From beginning to end, Rise of the Anakim pushes the reader to a broader understanding of the world, both geographically and spiritually. Rise of the Anakim is able to keep your attention regardless of your level of knowledge of world history. If you are totally unfamiliar with ancient history, conspiracy theories and secret societies, you will stand to learn a lot about how different religions and groups of people from various time periods are connected. If you are well-versed in historical studies, Rise of the Anakim is a refreshing utilization of nonfiction in a fictitious setting. The main character, Kazra Moore, is a professor at City College in New York City. He is educated and trained in Western philosophies. He is overwhelmed by his spiritual awareness of the shift that slowly takes place around him. Things like this preoccupation with the number 11 and the Mayan apocalyptic theory involving the year 2012 seems to be related but Kazra can not figure out why. Things begin to unfold when he gets a phone call from Rick, his favorite student. Rick's uncle is a Creek Elder and wants to meet Kazra. That meeting with Uncle Yuccah in Carterville, GA, proves to be much more than Kazra could have imagined. The sacred crystals, known as the Rise of the Anakim, are scattered around the globe and must be gathered and brought back to the Creek Elder Yuccah to initiate an aspect the Purification ceremony which will eliminate the negative energy stuck on the Earth's physical plane. Otherwise, two-thirds of humanity will perish in the Earth's natural cleansing process. This is the same purification previously prophesied by many ancient cultures and currently seen manifested in the natural and man-made disasters around the world. Yuccah already possesses one of the keys. It's Kazra's spiral-shaped birthmark reveals him to be the person who has the task of gathering the three remaining keys. Kazra must use his spiritual awareness and deductive reasoning to figure out where in the world to go - literally. Kazra travels from the United States to Ireland to Ethiopia to Zimbabwe to Korea. He is lead to each location by by his intuition and connects with religious and historical scholars at each location who are able to connect him with the keys he needs. Each location is beautiful but equally dangerous since Kazra is followed by the Illuminati Order of Kingu, an evil cult in search of the same Keys. Great dialog and attention to detail makes this novel easy to read and hard to put down. Although many of the conversations are intellectual in nature, Adin Kachisi allows the characters to give you the facts in easy-to-digest, bite-sized chunks. He has also mastered the use of imagery that is so vivid, you can mentally visualize the natural settings, peoples and languages. You can also picture the super-natural beings, both good and evil. These characters are sprinkled throughout the story and easily transform Rise of the Anakim from National Geographic to X Files and back again. - Book Review: by Joey Pinkney

I disagree with Eric's review on a few points. I found the tornado aspect of the novel to be the very strong point of the book setting it apart. Eric says the book goes off topic when it deals with Quetzalcoatl and other religious subjects. This is not true because the surface subject of this book is 2012 Mayan prophecies and world events, and Quetzalcoatl is actually one of the major deities of the Aztec, Toltecs,and Mayans. However, I agree that the book is loaded with sub-plots good enough to create separate books, the indigo children story is one, the super-virus time travellor is another full book and also the New Manhattan final battle. overrall I rate the book fascinating and intoxicating. A very good read.

Reviewed by: Eric Jones Reading 'Rise of the Anakim' feels like traveling through the ruins of a fiction landscape where a genre-tornado has just cut a path of Adin Kachisi's mayhem. Along the skirts of the makeshift road lie piles of forgotten subplots, bits of Lovecraftian lore are scattered amidst the wreckage of what used to be a Dan Brown-like word puzzle. It's messy, and in some cases really sad, but you can't look away. The mess, in many ways, is mesmerizing. It's whirlwind of story, revisionist history, and convoluted genre elements seem intentional, as the story reflects also a disjointed, often comical narrative, making 'Rise of the Anakim' something to be both admired and feared. Owning up to this role, the book actually begins at ground zero, the wreckage of the World Trade Center, where a member of the Illuminati Order of Kingu uses a vile of human blood (nevermind who's) and mutters some Sumerian words to release a spawn of hell into the Big Apple. Afterward we're introduced to Ethan Moore, a college professor who is sent on a quest to find four crystal keys that will restore balance to humanity, even out the tides, reverse Global Warming, the whole deal. Throughout Ethan's journey across the world he encounters mystics who give him alternative versions of world history. These speculations are meant to surround the Mayan's ending of the world calendar in 2012, and the keys that will bring peace. But more often they just stray off topic (the story of Quetzalcoatl, the Shona religion, and the second coming of Jesus in 1918) and muddy the novel's central plot. Not that it makes much difference. These stories seem more important to Kachisi anyway, and Professor Ethan Moore doesn't challenge any of them. He simply says, "Amazing!" and continues to listen, unabated by the hell beast who is warping all over the world killing untold numbers of people. Conspiracies are often introduced with grandiose and verve, only to never be seen or heard from again. Aliens show up, along with angels and demons, tales of ancient nuclear weapons, fun factoids of civilizations that you've never heard about. It's hard to take anything seriously when Ninjas show up with laser guns, but Kachisi's tone is adamant. He's giving you the gospel. Don't bother trying to connect the dots here. Rather, take each one as it comes and you'll discover an experience well worth the venture. There are interesting stories buried in piles of abandoned plot shanties; the Indigo Children for instance, a group of super children born with extra chromosomes that give them amazing powers. The arching story about the world's end and resurrection in 2012, and the development of a new DNA strand all tie into Ethan's quest nicely. Some of Kachisi's asides are entertaining as well. 'Rise of the Anakim' is a tornado of fiction, and presents itself in such away that it can only be gawked at in amazed disbelief. Like a tornado, it jumps from place to place, hitting some points dead on the head, and missing others entirely. It unravels the narrative form, drops characters wherever, epigraphs end up in the middle of the text, elements from Stephen King books, Indiana Jones movies, and comic books, are spilled inexplicably in the path of its wake. And when you come through, bumpy though the path may be, you cannot turn away.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It's full of surprises. Just when you think it's time to turn swords to plowshares, a new bloody battle is born making the movie 300 look like childplay. I recommend this book to anyone looking for both raw action and a meaningful read.
