Dear readers,

THE EARTH SHIFTER is my unique take on what has been and what is to come, as we speed ahead toward our common future. As with all of my books, THE EARTH SHIFTER is a whimsical and original, yet satisfying, stew of fantasy and reality. The cataclysms and events described in it indeed took place, and those predicted may materialize, if mankind… But I’ll leave it up to you to decide where fantasy ends and reality starts. This is BOOK 1 of the trilogy, with Books 2 and 3 to be released

If you could read just one book this year, seriously consider The Earth Shifter! This metaphysical fantasy/thriller is simply one of the most compelling stories you'll find. Author Lada Ray expertly weaves a tale about the consequences that mankind's insanity has upon the world.

The historical content is fantastic, I've learned a lot. The book is rich with historical references, time traveling flashbacks and exotic locales. The apocalyptic theme addresses probable futures for humanity, depending

With Ingredients such as deeply rooted cultures, paranormal abilities, and fantasy tinged with Sci-fi I find it hard for any avid reader NOT to enjoy such a book as The Earth Shifter!
The author opens up her novel in 1908 in which two very important men are discussing within the walls of the Vatican the coming of the prophetic ‘Key’ which is the only saving grace for the failing civilizations that thrive on our planet, Earth. A certain comet is set on its course: destination Earth and it is up to

This is the main saga written in tandem with Ms. Ray's series "The Earth Keeper." Read her book "Catharsis" to get a rundown of an amazing preamble to humanity itself!

Warning: Lada Ray knows more about human nature than Gandhi himself!

With that said, she is able to craft a wonderful tale that will entertain where other writers would steer their great knowledge into penning a pedantic. I'm so glad she didn't go that route. The Earth Shifter is a very "aware" novel, but one that fails to preach ov

This book has something for everyone: history, action, fantasy, philosophy, culture and spiritualism. The author's incredible imagination transports us back in time as well as gives us a glimpse into a terrible future. The historical detail is cleverly incorporated into a modern day tale full of mystery and intrigue. I love the detailed description of the Siberian landscape; I now want to visit Lake Baikal! Ms Ray has created some fascinating characters who will either save or destroy the earth. ...more

WOW! Lada Ray's blend of history, current events, mythology and fantasy left me in awe.

They were the Key of Destiny. They would multiply their power and propel Earth forward or they would destroy it. They are the Earth Shifter.


The Earth Keepers were deciding Earth's fate. They were the record keepers, moderators and ultimate decision makers. Should they allow the Comet of Karma to determine the Earth's fate or should they intervene to save the planet? As they talked, Tengis, one of the Keepe

Lada Ray’s The Earth Shifter is the easiest five star reviews I’ve done in a long time, not just from the perspective of the writing but I loved and was captivated by the story right from he beginning. This is an intelligently written story, that draws on remote viewing (I was lucky to be friends with one of the main researchers at Stanford when the studies were under way to attest to the accuracy of the author’s depiction, down to the noting on paper, drawing, what was viewed) along with other ...more

‘The Earth Shifter’ takes the reader on a world-enriching spiritual journey filled with drama and excitement! Lada Ray, with her keen intuitive sense, has written another impressive thriller. As in her previous thrillers, 'Gold Train' and 'Stepford USA', Ms. Ray artfully puts the pieces in place, building the suspense steadily until the reader is fully encompassed. In 'Gold Train’ we were treated to the mystery of the Tsar’s missing gold. In 'The Earth Shifter' we journey back to key moments in ...more

The Earth Shifter by Lada Ray is a rich cocktail of amazing ingredients with the two core, and most delicious components being, the mystical realm of Lake Baikal in Siberia, as well as the Prophecy of the Key.

With every new chapter I just couldn’t help but admire the versatility of writing. The author covers a wide range of interests from history and legends, to mysticism, prophecy and origins of humanity. There are elements of a spy thriller set against the glamorous backdrop of modern Moscow a

Living her life in the fast lane, Lada Ray, M.A., always wanted to write cool stories, which she'd been imagining in her head ever since she can remember. Instead, she listened to her well-meaning parents and started her life in a more traditional way (for her, that is). Born in Russia, she is a world traveler, linguist, financial consultant, Feng Shui Master, shaman, futurist, and metaphysics/spi ...more
