Shaman Elizabeth Herrera’s newest novel is a daring adventure inspired by real-life events and indigenous wisdom–Press Release

Earth-Sentinels-Cover-kindleThe author, Shaman Elizabeth Herrera, incorporated some of her own experiences into the new novel Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators, which features compelling characters, such as the fallen angel Bechard, shamans, spiritual beings and the earth’s creatures, who collaborate with supernatural powers to fight against greed, corruption and indifference, demanding that mankind changes its way…or else.

Elizabeth was raised in a Christian home, but lost her faith in her early twenties. For over a decade, she searched for something to fill the void, eventually discovering Native American spirituality. Through this spiritual practice, she unexpectedly became a catalyst for healing and miracles. These events led her back to a belief in a higher power.

Her father was raised by her great-grandfather, who was a full-blooded Apache that smuggled sugar and flour from Mexico into Texas, exchanged gunfire with Texas Rangers and crossed paths with Pancho Villa.

One of the supernatural scenes that appears in Earth Sentinels was based on the time Elizabeth went to a tree farm. She explains, “While my husband and I walked through the rows of trees, I notice a sad, wilted tree lying on its side against a woodchip pile. I heard it whisper, ‘Help me.’ Since this was at the very beginning of my spiritual journey, I ignored the plea for help, thinking it was my imagination, but the next time I passed the tree, it called out again. I tried to ignore it, and the third time we walked near it, I actually avoided making eye contact. Funny! Right? Trying to avoid a tree,” Elizabeth muses. “Anyway, in Earth Sentinels I wrote about a tree that calls out for help because it is being killed by the chemicals that are being pumped into the land by the natural gas fracking process. Two of the main characters are brought together when they hear the tree’s pleas.” Elizabeth adds, “By the way, I did buy the real tree, which grew into a lovely specimen.

“There are other events from my life that are mixed into the story as well, such as the shamans talking to hurricanes and the totem animals that help to save the day. I believe we are all connected, which means we are all part of the problem and the solution.”

Laine Cunningham, award-winning author, stated, “This is one of those books that’s going to stand alongside classics. Drawing from Native American wisdom and the beliefs of a world filled with respect for nature and its spiritual elements, Herrera has created a global book of wisdom for a global world.”

The Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators eBook is on sale for .99¢ on Amazon through the first weekend of August. The paperback is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other fine bookstores.

  • Did you know that fracking is linked to earthquakes and is destroying our water supplies?1
  • Did you know that there is no safe way to mine, store, or process nuclear materials used in power plants?2
  • Did you know there have been over 270,000 suicides in India by farmers who used GMO seeds with devastating results?3,4
  • Did you know that the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest is altering our weather?5
  • Did you know there were at least 7,662 spills, blowouts, leaks and other mishaps in 2013 in 15 top US states for onshore oil and gas activity?6

Earth-Sentinels-Cover-kindleThe newly released novel, Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators by Shaman Elizabeth Herrera is a “no-holds-barred piece of literary realism” that dives head first into the most pressing issues affecting our planet while at the same time instills hope and offers “a classic model of wisdom for living harmoniously on earth,” according to Mark Champion of OurHealingMatters.com, “On occasion, we all read a book that we know will mark the time of our age. Earth Sentinels’ message is every bit as telling and accurate as Animal Farm and Fahrenheit 451. It is a succulent portion of cold, hard truth played out with characters you share affinity with, understand and love.”

“This compelling adventure shows that our struggles around the world are connected and that ordinary people have the power to change the world for the better.” — Dr. Margaret Flowers, PopularResistance.org

Earth Sentinels begins with the fallen angel Bechard somberly observing the world being destroyed by mankind’s greed, corruption and indifference. Realizing drastic measures are needed, Bechard begins searching the globe for people who might join his quest to save the planet.

It doesn’t take long for the fallen angel to find 17-year-old Zachary, whose family’s organic farm is being ruined by fracking; Haruto, living in Fukushima, Japan, where the nuclear meltdown is raging out of control; Mahakanta, a cotton farmer in India, who used GMO seeds with devastating results; the Amazonian tribe members, Conchita and her father, Pahtia, fighting against intruders illegally tearing down their rainforest; and the Bear Claw First Nation Tribe who are dealing with an unstoppable oil spill that is ruining their traditional hunting grounds.

Intriguing blue doors and ethereal mists beckon the characters to the spirit realm where they finally meet the mastermind Bechard to form an alliance. Excitement builds when the world’s Governments are faced with the Earth Sentinels’ demands, sent on behalf of Mother Earth who cannot speak for herself. As events unfurl and countries retaliate, the readers ride a roller coaster through the supernatural!

Laine Cunningham, award-winning author, stated, “This is one of those books that’s going to stand alongside classics. Drawing from Native American wisdom and the beliefs of a world filled with respect for nature and its spiritual elements, Herrera has created a global book of wisdom for a global world.”

Book Reviewer, Merril Anil, Gives Novel “Earth Sentinels” Five Stars!

Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators

Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators

Rating: 5/5

Beautiful!

Earth Sentinels definitely stands out for the plot. The plot is fantastic and the way it has been treated makes for an interesting read. What I like about the treatment is the fact that the author has chopped the story into small blocks, so you are not caught up in too many intricacies and webs of the plot. You are able to move into the story gradually and fully involved, which I thought was a really clever narration. Had it not been for this level of narration, the reader would have gotten lost because there are so many characters and individual stories. It would have been difficult to catch up with each character.

The story moves at a great speed and the language is beautiful as well. While the first half introduces the entire characters, the second half is where the actual story comes into full bloom and does so pretty interestingly. In spite of telling a complex story, involving a lot of characters, I felt the author eased the readers into the plot very delicately and kept it intriguing.

I still don’t know how to describe the book. In spite of being filled with fantasy elements and mystical worlds, it is very much real and intertwined with the modern world. A great thought process is definitely visible in the story.

The book for one has a pretty unique and interesting storyline with a good technique in narration. It does not burden you with the plot and details. In fact, the author has made it quite an easy read with an intelligent treatment in my opinion. The book definitely makes for an interesting read.

The Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators

Earth Sentinels Cover-Amazon-240pg.indd“Quick paced with a powerful message.” — Greg Kincaid, New York Times Bestselling Author

Intriguing blue doors and ethereal mists beckon people who are devastated by mankind’s greed, corruption and indifference, such as Zachary, a young man whose family’s organic farm is ruined by fracking; and Haruto, a Miko living in Fukushima, Japan, where the nuclear meltdown is raging out of control; Mahakanta, a cotton farmer in India, who used GMO seeds with devastating results; Amazonian tribe members, Conchita and her father, Pahtia, who are fighting against the intruders illegally tearing down their rainforest; and the Bear Claw First Nation Tribe that is dealing with an unstoppable oil spill, which is ruining their traditional hunting grounds. After stepping into another dimension, they find themselves face to face with the mastermind Bechard, a fallen angel and the Master of the Elements.

Together, they use supernatural powers to grab the world’s attention, demanding that the world’s leaders implement the changes…or else. But as the events unfold and governments retaliate, the characters are forced to question their motives, fight for their lives and listen to their hearts.

“Every bit as telling and accurate as “Animal Farm” and “Fahrenheit 451”. — Mark Champion, OurHealingMatters.com

“On occasion, we all read a book that we know will mark the time of our age. Where truth is illegal, communication is regulated and monitored, and humanity is impaled upon the skewer of power and greed, this book’s message is every bit as telling and accurate as Animal Farm and Fahrenheit 451. It is a succulent portion of cold, hard truth played out with characters you share affinity with, understand and love.” — Mark Champion, OurHealingMatters.com

“Riveting! I found it difficult to put the book down. This fiction reads as a non-fictional account of the spiritual side of the indigenous people and the problems facing our world today. A must read!” — Dennis Nighthawk, healer and spiritual leader, retired military, and tribe member of the White Laurel Band of Cherokee

“This compelling adventure shows that our struggles around the world are connected and that ordinary people have the power to change the world for the better. I encourage all to read Earth Sentinels and be inspired to take action.” — Dr. Margaret Flowers, PopularResistance.org and Co-chair of the Green Party

“Simply riveting! This book is a page turner to the end. Herrera has woven a cautionary tale with threads of history, revelation and hope. Bravo!” — Richard O’Shields, Channel and Media Professional, EverydayConnection.me

Earth Sentinels is gripping, takes the reader hostage, and educates on the cultural similarities and differences of spiritual leaders from all over the world. This is definitely a recommended read. — Lonny Hall, tribe member of Kon Kow Valley Band of Maidu, and grandson of Pamelo, Northern Maidu Shaman
