Readers can unravel the mystery of the intriguing predictions in this tale that follows Ivan Peterson as he embarks on a colossal quest to save the world
In the year 2012, the Sun will align itself with the center of the Milky Way or the Dark Rift as it is also known, this event typically takes place every twenty-six thousand years. The Mayans were experts in predicting events such as the alignment that is set to occur in the year 2012; it is thought that they obtained their predictions by using an ancient calendar. Known for its accuracy, it is also plagued with mystery because for an unknown reason, this calendar ends on December 21, 2012. Did the Mayans end their calendar on this day because they knew it marked the end of the world? Readers can unravel the mystery of this prediction as they follow Ivan Peterson on his colossal quest to save the world in author Ricky Lucio’s new sci-fi novel, Time and Space: The Dark Rift.
Ivan Peterson is an astrophysics professor at the University of Nevada–Las Vegas. He possesses a vast understanding in this subject as well as great knowledge in ancient cultures and mythologies. Haunted by his past, he is a man filled with mixed emotions, which he often expresses through his journal. On December 14, 2012, his life changes when he receives an unexpected warning of something much greater than an alignment and something much worse than anyone could have imagined. What started out as an ordinary day for him quickly turns into a challenge to save the world. With heart-pounding intensity and challenges at every corner, Dr. Peterson must work with the U.S. Military, the President of the United States, a couple of friends, and a visitor from the future to try to save the Earth from destruction.
With only seven days left until December 21, 2012, Ivan must think fast to unravel a mystery written throughout history and he will soon find out that the Mayans were just one of many different cultures that predicted a catastrophe in the year 2012. From the ancient Sumerians, to the Egyptians, to the Hopi Indians and even Nostradamus – this date has been looked upon as the end of the world by many. Ivan Peterson will find out that not only did these ancient cultures try to warn us of the year 2012 but that the key to stopping the event that looms ahead might also be hidden out there in plain view, waiting to be deciphered by someone. Which force will destroy the planet Earth and its people first: a hostile alien race known as the Annunaki or the increasingly tense nuclear countries of the world, all with their weapons ready to fire at a moment’s notice? Readers can unravel the mystery as they follow Ivan Peterson on his colossal quest to save the world in author Ricky Lucio’s new sci-fi novel, Time and Space: The Dark Rift.
