Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • Zecharia Sitchin’s secret allegorical novel that brings to life the key concepts of his bestselling book The 12th Planet

    • Reimagines the Epic of Gilgamesh in the context of Sitchin’s discoveries

    • Details ancient Sumerian sex rituals, the Anunnaki lineage of the gods who lived in Sumer, Anunnaki spacecraft
    technology, the workings of the Oracle of Anu, and Gilgamesh’s relationship with the goddess Ishtar

    Written in secret so as not to incite criticism about his controversial discoveries, this novel from the late Zecharia
    Sitchin brings to life the key themes of his bestseller The 12th Planet. The story begins in London as Astra arrives at
    the British Museum’s opening for their new Gilgamesh exhibit. There she meets a handsome stranger who knows secrets
    about her that no stranger should know, including the source of the unusual scar on her hand. Taking her to his
    apartment, he reveals that she is descended from the goddess Ishtar and that he is the modern-day avatar of Gilgamesh
    seeking to claim the eternal life Ishtar denied him so long ago. Reenacting their sacred sex ritual from eons ago, they
    find themselves transported to ancient Sumer as Gilgamesh and Ishtar, where he is at last able to continue his quest for
    immortality.

    But as Gilgamesh fulfills his sacred duties with Ishtar, something goes awry and the Oracle of Anu will not renew its
    blessing upon his kingship. Following the direction of his mother, the Anunnaki goddess Ninsun--the source of his
    partial divinity--Gilgamesh flees the city for the Anunnaki forbidden zone in search of a way to the planet Nibiru and
    eternal life. Travel alongside Gilgamesh and his immortal companion Enkidu as they escape the fate pronounced by the
    oracle, discover a Tablet of Destiny meant for Ishtar, fight off Marduk’s raiders, and foil the plot of the high priest,
    Gilgamesh’s half-brother who is seeking Gilgamesh’s crown for himself.

    Retelling the Epic of Gilgamesh in the context of his discoveries about the Anunnaki, Zecharia Sitchin weaves a tale of
    ancient ceremony, accidental betrayal, gods among men, interplanetary travel, and a quest for immortality spanning
    millennia.
