    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.

    Patricia says: "Newest Sigma Force is a little off"
    "Sorry Mr. Rollins, but the narrator ruins the book"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book itself isn't bad. It doesn't have the same feel as the previous 8.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christian Baskous’s performances?

    NO NO NO! I could barely finish the book with his reading.

    Story
    (255)

    As long as anyone can remember, society has been ruled by a Colortocracy. From the underground feedpipes that keep the municipal park green to the healing hues viewed to cure illness to a social hierarchy based upon one's limited color perception, society is dominated by color. In this world, you are what you can see.

    Roger says: "Slow, weird... but a good set-up for sequels."
    "Witty Young Adult Lit"

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    This book is written with the characteristics of a young adult book (main character's age and issues) but is written beautifully with wonderful allusions. I want a second book to come out so badly. I listened to the book years ago, and again 6 months ago. I think about it all the time.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Beautiful speaking voice. I could listen to him all day long. There is something about him that is friendly and inviting.
