Book Tour + Review: Qerach (Erabon Prophecy Trilogy, #3) by Randy C. Dockens @RandyCDockens @pumpupyourbook


An astronaut, accidentally thrown deep into the universe without hope of getting home discovers he is part of an ancient alien prophecy that, although so foreign to him, also feels extremely familiar…

By Randy C. Dockens

An exciting trilogy where an astronaut, nicknamed Nuke and working on an interstellar gate, is accidentally thrown so deep into the universe there is no way for him to get home. He does, however, find life on a nearby planet, one in which the citizens look very different from him.

Although tense at first, he finds these aliens think he is the forerunner to the return of their deity and has been charged with reuniting the clans living on six different planets. What is stranger to him still is that while everything seems so foreign from anything he has ever experienced, there is an element that also feels extremely familiar.

He has to gain the trust from each alien clan and demonstrate through various acts that he is the one they have been waiting for so each culture can fully accept him and follow him. But for the aliens to accept him as the prophet to their deity, Erabon, he has to first accept it and believe it himself.

As Nuke sat on the beach, he saw Ti’sulh coming up through the lagoon once more and walking toward him. Without saying a word, she came and sat beside him. They both sat and watched the sunset without exchanging a word. As the sun went below the horizon, the sky filled with brilliant golds and reds—truly a spectacular show. 

     “That was beautiful,” Ti’sulh said. 

     Nuke looked at her and nodded. Evidently, this was the first one she had seen. “Worth the trip?” he asked. 

     She nodded. “But that wasn’t my main reason for coming. Although . . . ” She gave a big smile. “I’m glad I came before sundown to view it.” 

     Nuke laughed. “Two birds with one stone?” 

     Ti’sulh scrunched her face. “Two birds? One stone?” 

     Nuke looked down and shook his head. Trying to explain wasn’t worth the effort. He would have to get her to understand the concept of a bird and then why a person would want to kill such a creature. No, that was too much to try for.  “Doesn’t matter. You came to talk to me about the prophecy. Didn’t you?” 

     Ti’sulh nodded. “Yes. I have been talking with Y’din for the most part of the day.” 

     Nuke leaned back on his hands. “That’s why I came here. I thought being out of the way was best until you and he came to some type of decision.” 

     Ti’sulh dug in the sand with her toes. “Y’din thinks you’re a fraud.” 

     Nuke gave a sigh with a small chuckle. “Fraud?” He looked at Ti’sulh. “I’ve never claimed to be anything but lost.” 

     She shrugged. “True. But you can’t deny how you fulfill the prophecy.” 

     He raised his eyebrows. “It seems Y’din can.” 

     Ti’sulh cocked her head. “Yes, that is true. He feels there is one additional test you must pass before he could be convinced.”

     “Just one?” Nuke laughed. “What does he want me to do? Breathe underwater or something?” 

     Ti’sulh didn’t laugh; she just looked at him. Nuke stopped laughing and looked at her, his mouth open. “You’ve got to be kidding.” He shook his head. “How does he expect me to do that?” 

     “I don’t think he does.” 

     “Oh, so he’s looking for a way to kill me off?” Nuke drew in the sand with his index finger. Why did that upset him? It wasn’t as though he thought he was a forerunner to Erabon. He paused. I don’t. Do I? 

     Ti’sulh put her hand on his shoulder. “Are you all right?” 

     “If this is not part of the prophecy, why is Y’din bent on me passing an additional test?” 

      Ti’sulh put her hands together and intertwined her fingers. “I have to agree with him.” 

      Nuke’s eyes widened. “Why is that?” 

     Ti’sulh’s “hair” moved more than normal. “It’s implied in the prophecy. You’re supposed to be able to open all six sides of the talisman. The talisman is in the temple, and the temple is underwater.” 

     “How long would I be underwater?” 

     “About an hour.” 

     Nuke coughed. “An hour?” He shook his head. “OK. I concede I’m not your prophet.” 

     She grabbed his arm. “Don’t say that. I have confidence in you even if Y’din does not.” 

     He put his hand on top of hers. “How . . . how can you say that? Your anatomy allows you to breathe underwater and on land. Mine doesn’t.” 

     Ti’sulh shook her head. “Erabon does not make mistakes.” Her eyes locked onto his. “He sent you to us. He knew what was required, so he will make his prophecy happen.” 

     Nuke took a deep breath. “I appreciate your vote of confidence, but . . . ” 

     Ti’sulh put her index finger to his lips. “Have faith. Erabon does not make mistakes.” She stood. “Now come with me. We have to prepare.” 

     Nuke wanted to protest, but doing so seemed useless. Instead, he followed her back to her home under the water. As soon as they emerged in the observatory where one could either view the underwater spectacle of fish and coral, or enter the sea, Y’din was there—waiting. He looked annoyed. 

     What a surprise, Nuke thought. 

     “Come,” Y’din stated. “We need to prepare.” He turned and wal

My Review of Qerach (Erabon Prophecy Trilogy, #3) by Randy C. Dockens

Nuke a human astronaut was working to build gateways to other universes when he was thrown through one before it was activated leaving him with no way to return home. Not knowing if he would ever see his homeworld again Nuke tried to make the best of it.

On the first planet, he landed on the people there thought he was their messiah who had returned to them. Not knowing what else to do and not being able to quell their enthusiasm he let them believe what they chose.

After learning about the other planets in their solar system Nuke did what he could to reunite all the planets. Nuke found a way to travel to the other planets. This is how he ended up on a new and different planet. Oh, and on the second planet, he visited he found his friend from his homeworld who had come through the gateway in search of him.

This is how Nuke, Michael, and the others ended up on this new planet trying to reunite the planets. On this planet, they learn about the dark people. Nuke figures out that if he wanted to reunite all the planets he must first reunite the people on each planet first.

Nuke’s journey has been a very excited one for me. I have sorely enjoyed reading Nuke’s story and watching him go through that gateway to visit places no human has gone before. Watching as he is introduced to new worlds and people. Learning their ways and trying to get along with them. Trying to help them reunite with their people from other planets.

This has been one incredible journey that I have gone on with Nuke and I truly hate to see it end. I have come to like Nuke, Michael, and all the other characters. I have enjoyed trying to picture it all in my head. The descriptions were so vividly written making it so easy to do so.

At times I almost felt as if I was floating in space looking around at all that darkness looking upon all the planets seeing their stars twinkling and maybe a spaceship or two as well. Ha...ha...

I would dearly love to see the Erabon Prophecy Trilogy on the big screen to see if what I pictured in my head even came close to what the author intended. The graphics would be so amazing.

I highly recommend Qerach to all science fiction fans. One-click your copy of Qerach today for an epic adventure in space! I do highly recommend that you read the books in order starting with the first book Myeem and then the second book Sharab before reading the third book Qerach. Erabon Prophecy Trilogy needs to be read in order to get the full aspect of the story.

Dr. Randy C. Dockens 
has a fascination with science and with the Bible, holds Ph.D. degrees in both areas, and is a man not only of faith and science, but also of creativity. He believes that faith and science go hand in hand without being enemies of each other.

After completing his bachelor’s degree in pharmacy from Auburn University he went on to graduate school at Auburn and completed his first doctorate degree in Pharmaceutics. He began his scientific career as a pharmacokinetic reviewer for the Food and Drug Administration and later joined a leading pharmaceutical company as a pharmacokineticist, which is a scientist who analyzes how the human body affects drugs after they have been administered (i.e, absorbed, distributed, metabolized, and excreted).

Through the years, he has worked on potential medicines within several disease areas, including cardiovascular, fibrosis, and immunoscience to seek and develop new and novel medicines in these therapy areas.

He has also had his attention on the academic study of the Bible. He earned a second doctorate in Biblical Prophecy from Louisiana Baptist University after receiving a master’s degree in Jewish Studies from the Internet Bible Institute under the tutelage of Dr. Robert Congdon.

Randy has recently retired from his pharmaceutical career and is spending even more time on his writing efforts. He has written several books that span dystopian, end-time prophecy, science fiction, and uniquely told Bible stories. All of his books, while fun to read, are futuristic, filled with science to give them an authentic feel, have a science fiction feel to them, and allow one to learn some aspect of Biblical truth one may not have thought about before. This is all done in a fast-paced action format that is both entertaining and provides a fun read to his readers.

Randy’s latest books are in the Christian science fiction series, ERABON PROPHECY TRILOGY.
