From number one New York Times best-selling author James Rollins comes a shocking short story. A chance mishap leads to the discovery of a weapon like no other in Crash and Burn.
On a transatlantic flight, the two black sheep of Sigma Force - Seichan and Kowalski - must set aside their mutual dislike as a mysterious fiery force knocks their aircraft out of the sky. This unlikely duo must use every skill, weapon, and bit of ingenuity to survive a night on a remote volcanic island, where their only refuge is the haunted, bat-plagued grounds of a seemingly deserted resort. But something horrific awaits the two, something born of the latest science but rooted in our basest human instincts. To survive they will need to learn to work together - but even then, it may be too late.

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
As Rollins says at the end of the book, as he is patting himself on the back, he may be the only one to write about this type of EMP. I'm not knocking him, although him and James Patterson sure like to promote themselves. Anyways, I liked what he did with the EMP. This story was almost 100% action, and I just could not get into it. As another reviewer said, he needed to flesh out the tech more and I didn't care for the excerpt of his next book.
Narrator seem a little strange. You would think Rollins could afford a better narrator.
Maybe it's me but this was the same ole same from the series. Nothing new to listen to, formulaic and predictable.
Most notably, I could not get engaged with the audio version of this book. The way it was read was very distracting to me, which was a large letdown. I tried multiple times to get into the book but at the end just found another book.
Absolutely, I've loved all of his books and his blend of action, science, and character development. I think the reading of this one was the reason I couldn't enjoy it.
There was something very distracting regarding the performance. I would find myself uninterested throughout the story.
Yes, I've never been disappointed by a James Rollins story.
Blind listener reading everything, especially mystery/thrillers and sf&f. Restricted to audio so picky where credits spent. #BooksRule
I really enjoy the Sigma Force novels, and to a lesser degree the shorts, but lately the shorts have been rip offs w/ less content, and more blurbs for the next book... To boot, although some interesting science, application to the story lacks... E.g. How does the wave manage to ignore the protagonists? I do love Kowalski, and he does tend to steal the stage, but he couldn't save this from being mediocre...
