I read all of the Sigma Force books and this is another one I can highly recommend. The story was fast-paced and there were several parts that stretched my imagination with the images and action described in the story. The narrator/performer was also excellent and easy on the ears.
Yes, because you always discover something you missed the first time around.
The interaction of the team. I also really enjoyed the two newest members, especially Kane.
He helps with keeping the pace and brings energy to the performance.
Yes it made me laugh in several places because I know the characters from previous books. It also made me hold my breath more than once.
The author writes in such a way as to pull you in to the story. I always look forward to a new book by him. In fact, I have gone back and bought many of his other books before the Sigma team started. The only dismay I feel right now, is knowing I have to wait a long time for the next book!
Excitement and bravery by both men and women. It was not just one dimensional. I really liked the characters. It may be farfetched in some places, but it doesn't matter. It was still a great thrill ride.
This is my second James Rollins book, and while I enjoy the technical and research aspects of his books, I simply find them too boring at times.
The concept and overall story seem good, and I like the genre and believe there are a lot of really good fun and interesting points and story lines throughout this book. For me; however, there are simply too many slow periods and lulls in the story to keep me from calling this a "Can't-Put-Down" book, or in this case a "Can't-Quit-Listening" book.
I may try another Rollins book but I'm not going to jump out there and grab it anytime soon. From what I can tell by a lot of the reviews, it looks like Rollins has a very loyal following.
.....sooo if you like or love Rollins, I would highly recommend it.
Overall it's a decent story and decent listen as the narrator does a good job. I just don't think Rollins tickles my reading/listening bone.
I debated whether I wanted to listen to any more of the Sigma Force novels. I love the characters, but the last few were just okay. This one however did not disappoint!!! I'd rank it with the Da Vinci Code in story telling. I loved it, loved it, loved it.
yes I already listened to it three times because its amazing
kawalski because he kicks ass
yes peter jay fernandez does a great job always
I started with the strange books and enjoyed most. Then the Sigma Force came along and I really got into that. This one doesn't do it for me. Maybe it's the topic - there were a few yuks along the way.

This was my first Rollins book I have ever listened to / read. And I enjoyed it, its a good book with a lot of action. I am always worried that a book this far into a series of characters will leave me not understanding part of the story line, I never felt that way at all. I am not looking at getting another book in this series.
The story concept is interesting however I did not stay rivited to the book, partly due to the narrator and the way the concept was presented.
I'm a big fan of James Rollins and always look forward to his latest book.....especially the Sigma Force novels. He's done a great job developing his characters from book to book (including non-Sigma Force) so when I start listening to his newest book I feel like I'm revisiting old friends on new adventures.I have to be honest, I was SLIGHTLY disappointed with Bloodline. Don't get me wrong, I have very high expectations and it's a good book. However, it isn't his best by any means and the story was somewhat predictable. Likewise, part of the reason I'm such a Rollins fan is his intensive research and the historical "mysteries" he weaves into each storyline (Map of Bones, Black Order). I felt the booking was seriously lacking on this aspect and he got wrapped up in his own medical expertise when writing it. Personally, I think his adventures with a focus on the past (more historical) are more interesting to listen to and read then his books with a "future science" storyline.
Somewhat. It was exciting but also a little predictable.
Great performance as usual.
Absolutely. No matter what my feelings were on this particular work, James Rollins is a great author and Sigma Force is a fun series to listen to.
