Description

In a masterwork of historical mystery and scientific exploration, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins reveals an apocalyptic vision of the day after tomorrow, of a future predicted by the distant past, of a world doomed to burn under The Eye of God

The crash of a U.S. military research satellite in the remote wilds of Mongolia triggers an explosive search for the valuable cargo it holds: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy, the energy associated with the birth of our universe. But the last blurry image from the falling satellite captures a chilling sight: a frightening look into the future, a view of a smoldering eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin. At the Vatican, a mysterious package arrives for the head of Pontifical ancient studies, sent by a colleague who vanished a decade earlier. It contains two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA testing reveals both are from Genghis Khan—the long-dead Mongol king whose undiscovered tomb is rumored to hold the vast treasures and knowledge of a lost ancient empire.

Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma—joined by a pair of Vatican historians—race to uncover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery bound in the roots of Christianity's origins, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jul 15, 2013 – Rollins's latest SIGMA Force spectacle (after Bloodline) opens with a race to save the planet as an ominous comet approaches. A fantastical plot involving crashed American satellites, ancient religious relics, and the Chinese mafia is grounded with a unique cast of heroes including scientists, priests, and indestructible soldiers. In Rollins's world, no international setting is complete without a fight to the death battle, and though the good guys are expected to win, there is always a heavy cost. The histories of Genghis Kahn and Attila the Hun lead the heroes on a chase to alter the trajectory of the deadly comet as Rollins delves into the physics of dark energy and quantum entanglement. Like most action-adventure blockbusters, the dialogue verges on unbearable, but Rollins surprises with some tender touches like when a Vietnamese mother is reunited with her long lost daughter, two elderly priests share a final moment together, and a loyal falcon is released in order to save it. He also grants his female characters strength and agency, so they're not simply love interests for male hero figures. Rollins delivers his suspenseful brand of entertainment with ease.

Customer Reviews

Great read!

Wonderfully woven page turner. I would say his best Sigma book to date.

The Eye of God

A lot of fun. Not the best written book, but very interesting. Loved the notes at the end. What is next?

Short

Another great sigma novel. Felt a little bit short though, might have been because I couldn't put it down for two days.
