As always James Rollins does not disappoint. Would love to see his Sigma Force novels made into movies. Very well told using current and not so distant science to drive the story forward. Characters are very well defined. Excellent story teller!

This book was a Kindle Daily Deal for $1.99 a while back. I was about to finish the book I was on and this sounded somewhat interesting, so I grabbed it. I'm now using OPL's ebook selection to read the rest of the series.

A good read. Probably a lot of genetic facts in this novel, enlightening.

I love all of his books. I'm not sure if it's the last book in the Sigma Force series, but I really hope it's not!

This book you'll open at 6 PM and not put down until 6 AM. A typical Rollins, keeps you interested and guessing.

Wow, another great installments of the Sigma Force series. Lovely cross over of lead character from Deep Phantom. It was an exciting read filled with drama, action, politics, explosions, sci-fi, and a surprising twist at the end! Highly recommended, it is best if you start reading from the first two books of the series "Sandstrom" and "Map of Bones"!

You have lifted up the shrine of Moloch and star of your god Repham the idols you made to worship. Therefore I will send you into exile beyond Babylon.
