Publisher's Summary

Deep in the Rocky Mountains, a gruesome discovery - hundreds of mummified bodies - stirs international attention and fervent controversy. Despite doubts to the bodies' origins, the local Native American Heritage Commission lays claim to the prehistoric remains, along with the strange artifacts found in the same cavern: gold plates inscribed with an unfathomable script.

During a riot at the dig site, an anthropologist dies horribly. All evidence points to a radical group of Native Americans, including one agitator who escapes with a vital clue to the murder and calls on the one person who might help - her uncle, Painter Crowe, director of Sigma Force. To protect his niece and uncover the truth, Painter will ignite a war across the nation's most powerful intelligence agencies. Yet, an even greater threat looms as events in the Rocky Mountains have set in motion a geological meltdown that threatens the entire western half of the U.S.

From the volcanic peaks of Iceland to the blistering deserts of the American Southwest, from the gold vaults of Fort Knox to the bubbling geysers of Yellowstone, Painter Crowe joins forces with commander Gray Pierce to penetrate the shadowy heart of a dark cabal, one that has been manipulating American history since the founding of the 13 colonies. But can he discover the truth before it destroys all he holds dear?

    "something of a drag"

    this was my first and last Sigma novel. Shades of SPECTRE. Secret layer on top of secret layer.
    With some amazingly inept characters moving through a maze of world threating events with the insane dwarf master and his minions. Yeah he researched all this stuff and I'm only suprised Dan Brown didn't beat him to the secret history of the Mormons and their heritage from the Knights Templar, sorry "teh lost tribes" and their stop off at Atlantis. Not my dish of tea. Little name dropping of choice items, a computer geek who sees into the core of the planet, and some Doc Savage rejects. Best descriptiion "sucks".

    I write romantic suspense with a little southern grit. I love romance & adventure w/a little mystery & suspense. I believe in happy endings.

    "History and Science"

    I love the way James Rollins weaves history and science and fiction and faith into a believable and beautiful story of human life and fallacies. Greed and corruption versus the greater good, add in action, a little romance and real life ups and downs and you have a powerful mix of what makes an awesome story!

    "NARRATOR NEEDS TO LEARN TO ENUNCIATE EVERY WORD"
    Would you listen to The Devil Colony again? Why?

    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!


    Would you recommend The Devil Colony to your friends? Why or why not?

    It's a decently entertaining book but the narrator is horrible


    What didn’t you like about Peter Jay Fernandez’s performance?

    He drops the end off more words than is acceptable

    "Another great sigma force novel"

    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.

    "Great story with twists and turns."
    If you could sum up The Devil Colony in three words, what would they be?

    Historical Techno Mystery


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.

    Story
    "Sigma Force Meets National Treasure"

    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.

    Story
    "Will it ever end?"

    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.
