Description

In The Eye of God, a Sigma Force novel, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins delivers an apocalyptic vision of a future predicted by the distant past.
 
In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy—and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin.
 
At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.
 
Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force set out to discover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery going back to the birth of Christianity, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity.

    I am a fan of anything James Rollins. I can be dead tired after a long day of work, mom, wife, etc...; but if I open a James Rollins novel I get a second wind. Before I know it I have two hours to sleep before my day starts all over again. That's how captivating his stories are.
  • James rocks!

    Have read every one of his books and loved them all. I can't wait for the next one.
  • Good story, bad storyteller

    Love the Sigma team. Really appreciate bring more of each character out every time. There is always depth and breadth in these stories that really grab your attention. I listen to these stories when I run, and appreciate the intrigue every time. But this narrator is terrible. I assumed they brought him on for his ability to speak the other languages in the story, but there has to be someone better. Timing is off, pauses are wrong, and too slow in his speech. Ugh. I have to rethink which stories I'll listen to vs read from now on.
  • Lots thrown into the mix

    Rollins packs a lot into this story— speculative science, some supernatural, history (real and invented); I just wish the characters were more richly developed.
  • The best

    If u haven't read a James Rollins book yet, what r u waiting 4? His writing is always fast paced action, right up to the end, a page turner. He mixes in science & technology facts that blow your mind but u know it's really true. His books keep getting better & better, I just can't wait for someone to make one into a movie!

    This book was amazing. The theories posed is this book makes you think about could have been. Also, it was to see some new characters with unique talents. Finally, it was sad to see two of the character that I grew to love in the previous book die in this one. You will grieve with the rest of sigma force fans after reading this book.

    Excellent read. Once you pick it up you don't want to let it go until that last page. Highly recommend it!
  • Good, but a bit tedious at times

    This book started out very exciting and gripping. But, as it wore on, the action seemed to be repetative and predictable. By the end, I was skipping over parts and glad to reach the end.
