“A thought-provoking and absorbing dystopian tale with a New Age touch [that] balances the exploration of human relationships with environmental, social, and political issues … CALI THE DESTROYER is an illuminating and deep read, and the result is a must-read tale in tune with contemporary concerns that it dresses up as an Orwellian future.” Readers’ Favorite

“When a book resonates and reminds one of experiences, thoughts and dreams, you know how special it is. CALI THE DESTROYER is a veritable rollercoaster ride of excitement … Think THE CELESTINE PROPHECY meets MISSION IMPOSSIBLE and we’re close! CALI THE DESTROYER shows us our possible future if we allow evil to continue and overcome us. This ‘faction’-filled book illuminates from the first chapter. Cali’s reality blurs with our own and gives us the vision and hope that, collectively, we have the power to create a beautiful world. Sol Luckman has more than a few messages to share where the healing of one’s self is just the start. I think this book has huge potential. I think I will read it again!” Sean Maguire, Author, OUT OF THE BAG
“CALI THE DESTROYER is a journey into Gnosticism and the mystery schools … It certainly is refreshing to read a novel that is educational as well as entertaining. As an author myself, I understand the importance of incorporating an important message into the framework of a novel. Sol has done this exceptionally well. Take a journey into Gnosticism and other ancient traditions through this novel, and use it as a spring board into further research and enlightenment!” Roger Gilbert, Author, LISTEN TO THE WIND SPEAK FROM THE HEART
“Sol Luckman has succeeded at creating a highly enjoyable and compelling narrative about the power of gnosis unlike any fantasy novel I’ve read in the last 10 years. Packed with humor and a lighthearted tone that makes for an easy page-turner, CALI THE DESTROYER is quickly becoming my most recommended fictional book of 2021!” Mike Winner, Co-founder of Alfa Vedic
