NO! Jay Fernandez is why. He is the king of dropped word endings. Consistantly throughout the book MANY TIMES PER PAGE - he drops s's t's ed's. He drops the end of the word. I remember now returning multiple books read by him in the past. I decided to deal with it this time. BUT NEVER AGAIN!
It's a decently entertaining book but the narrator is horrible
He drops the end off more words than is acceptable
Rollins sets the bar so high with his strategically precise pace and story content. I am blown away by his research leading to a creative masterpiece.
Historical Techno Mystery
I have been to everyone of the settings of the story, so that was a fun surprise. Great links beween the past and the present.
I'm a huge fan of James Rollins and the Sigma Force novels. Like his other novels, this book combines science, history, and mystery to keep you on the edge of your seat. Rollins is great at crafting multiple story lines and weaving them together seamlessly. In this book, the mystery dates back to the days of the American Revolution and a secret hidden for centruies by Native Americans to protect the world.
Rollins switches things up teaming Kowalski, normally CDR Pearce's sidekick, with Director Crowe on a race to beat the Guild to artifacts made of a dangerously explosive material. CDR Grey Pearce, Seichan, and Monk are teamed up to search through American history for any information on the material. They also face operatives of the Guild.
It's a great story. Kept me interested from beginning to end. I did have some trouble with the relationship between Director Painter Crowe and his "neice". In particular because it appears he had no relationship with her up until the day she called and pulled him into the mystery of the artifacts yet he throughout the book he feels incredibly responsible for her. It's the only thing that didn't exactly gel with me.
This book seemed to last forever, but not in a good way. The story line, although imaginative, was too far fetched to be believable. Even suspending disbelief didn't work. It seems the author wanted a modern day spy/whodunit sort of book with a backdrop of the ancestry of civilization in the US, add some nanobots in with a doomsday scenario and there's the book. Sort of wacky, which is okay, but it was not entertaining. I do not think I will consider another book by this author.
No. Became monotonous at times. The historical details went on and on. Good story.
Definitely not a book that would hold your attention
