THE EARTH SHIFTER is a true YA crossover, suitable for most readers, teen through adult.
Mankind would never know how close it came to annihilation on June 30, 1908. Somewhere in the murky depths of the Cosmos, the Comet of Karma is born. When all hope fades, it is sent to planet Earth, its sole mission to wipe out a failing civilization. It has happened before, and it can happen again. Except this time, the Earth Keepers would not interfere.

Keepers of the Earth
From the Earth Keepers Chronicles:
There are four types of Shifters. Mind Shifters can access any thoughts, even the hidden ones; Matter Shifters can turn into anything, as well as turn objects into something else; Time Shifters can bend and jump time; and Space Shifters can compress space, appearing at different places at once.
This is how Buddha was able to stop the charging elephant (mind shifting). This is how Jesus was able to multiply bread to feed the hungry (matter shifting). People swore that they saw the famous Time and Space Shifter, Count Saint-Germain, disappear and re-appear at different historic times and places.
The power of the true Shifters is such that they can manipulate events on Earth. To prevent that from happening, the true Shifters are carefully watched from birth and they are never told about the real extent of their powers until they are deemed ready.
The misuse of even one of these powers can be a huge problem. If more than one Shifter power is abused, the consequences can be catastrophic. Of course, despite all precautions, sometimes the Shifters discover who they are on their own, and sometimes they abuse their powers. This is what happened to Hitler, who was a powerful Mind and Matter Shifter, and who misused his powers for evil.
Ever since, the Keepers have been determined never to let this happen again.
The Protectors, also called Bogatyrs, are a special caste of gifted and courageous humans, whose entire life’s mission is to assist the Key of Destiny. As likely to be a soldier as an accountant, the Protector can literally be anyone, and you may never pick him or her out of the crowd.
These people may go through life not realizing their true destiny until the moment they are called to service. Then, their real nature becomes their only nature, and they fulfill their soul’s promise.
They are brave and dedicated, and if necessary, they will sacrifice their lives in order to protect Humanity from itself. In the past, many Protectors died to prevent mankind’s annihilation. Most perished in obscurity, as those they saved never found out about their heroism, the only memory of their deeds being preserved in these chronicles.
But no end is in sight for the Protectors’ sacrifice, as Humanity of Planet Earth enters the era of its ultimate struggle.
Remote viewing is a version of space shifting, which can be done without leaving your chair. On the surface, such an exercise appears an expedient shortcut, and easier than true space shifting, therefore, relatively large numbers of humans have been able to perform it.
In the Twentieth Century, intelligence services of then Cold War rivals, USA and USSR, had opened training centers for gifted remote viewers to deploy them as psychic spies. Over the years, psychic warriors, as they were known, managed to glean secret data from their adversaries, which was impossible to obtain any other way.
After the end of the Cold War, remote viewing programs were all but dismantled. However, at the dawn of the new millennium, psychic warriors were again in demand, some working for governments, others for major global corporations, and the rest, for secret organizations. Many remote viewers made pretty good money, exploiting their gifts for profit or someone’s global ambitions.
However, as with misuse of any power, there is always a steep price to pay.
Before recorded history, before Humanity, since times immemorial, Earth Keepers have been watching over our planet. Mankind has inherited the venerable institution of Keepers from its ancestors, the Lemurians, who were designated the first Keepers of earthly civilization soon after their arrival from the dying planet Catharsis, located on the outskirts of the Andromeda Galaxy.
Marked at birth and endowed with supreme powers, each new Keeper is called to duty when the previous one passes. The nine chosen ones have always been, and continue to be, Earth’s record keepers and moderators, and when the time comes, ultimate decision makers.
