William Gladstone talks with BookTrib and his readers:
The year 2012 didn’t mark the end of civilization as many had mistakenly predicted. Rather, it marked a turning point in human consciousness, a shift toward a more humanistic, less violent existence.
But not if Arnold Wheeler can help it.
Arnold is The Grand Light and Keeper of the Code of the Illuminati, which quietly and covertly control every major development on Earth. He is quite aware of the universal shift in consciousness predicted by the Mayans long ago. With this shift, humanity has the opportunity, for the first time, to reach its full potential. Except the Illuminati have other plans.
William Gladstone, author of the bestselling The Twelve, takes readers on a roller coaster adventure that features George W. Bush, alternate earths, and the real meaning of the upcoming 26,000-year Mayan cycle.
Part science-fiction, part philosophical exploration, The Power of Twelve will keep readers turning the pages, discovering the very nature of existence. The problems keep mounting. The clock keeps ticking. And by the end, readers will be wondering what is real, what is not, and how they can prepare their own lives for a world that is so rapidly changing.
