The Emerald Tablet contains knowledge handed down to humans from the Egyptian god, Thoth, over six thousand years ago. According to ancient alchemists and legend, the Emerald Tablet holds the secret of the primordial substance of the Universe, the power to transmute base materials into gold, and much more!
What if such knowledge, such power, were found today? How would that knowledge, made public, change Man's Destiny, challenge traditional knowledge taught across continents, and move the balance of power in the world? What wouldn't those in power do to stop that knowledge from becoming accessible to everyone in the world? Who could stop powerful people from squelching knowledge that is every human's birthright?
At an archeological dig on the Sinai Peninsula, an obscure piece of parchment kicks off a frantic search for the fabled Emerald Tablet. Andrew Coulter leads a team of internationally renowned experts in Egyptian history and archeology in a desperate search for ancient clues to the Tablet's location.
Unbeknownst to Coulter's team, a ruthless international organization, the League, also hunts for the Tablet, and tracks Coulter's team. The League has searched for the Tablet and the power it possesses since the beginning of the middles ages, and will kill anyone who gets in their way or touches the Tablet to make that power their own.
Hunted by the feared mukhabarat, the Egyptian secret police, and the violent proxies of the League, Coulter's team scours ancient texts and history as they race to find clues that will lead them to the Emerald Tablet. Bold, decisive action is the only way to stay one step ahead of the League and mukhabarat, but will that be enough?
Follow Andrew Coulter on this provocative, controversial adventure that challenges traditional ideas, thought and teaching, and discover for yourself what it takes to turn base materials into gold!
Very nice book!
I read the Emerald Tablet and really liked it. Interesting history in it, great action that keeps you reading, and I could see that everything could possibly happen. Never heard of the emerald tablet before, but interesting if it was real and an evil organization was trying to find it, chasing people around the middle east and doing whatever to get it in their hands.
A little slow in the beginning, but that set up the constant action throughout the rest of the book and I could see that it was necessary to give all the background, because that was what was important in the rest of the book. Like the way the book set up a sequel. Looks like it may have even more action with worse people going after the main characters than this book.
Amazing!! thrilling adventure
Loved the book. Didn't want to put down this page turner and thoroughly enjoyed it. Really, what if humans got this knowledge from the gods and applied it? Could we do what this guy Andrew coulter does? Great to think about what could be. Liked the characters--every one had their own personality and agenda. Could easily see how those in power wouldn't want this knowledge out there for everyone to use. The other commenters are right. Would make a great movie.
