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?

    "James Rollins a favorite of mine."

    I have read ALL his books, this being my first audio.
    I find my face mimicing the charachters more than four times an hour.
    Mr. Rollins story lines are credible and actually do teach some science. My favorite book will always be "Amazonia" it was my first introduction of this wonderful Author.

    "Another Excellent Book by this Author"

    Another Excellent Book by this Author - I have read and listened to all the books by this author - the books concerning Sigma I believe are the best and keep the reader/listener enthralled to the very end. I can hardly wait to the next book by this author.

    Story
    "Dan Brown want-a-be story"

    I have a great deal of respect for James Rollins as a writer, but this story did not work. I am a big Sigma fan, but the limits of credibility were stretched here beyond repair. The attempt to follow a Dan Brown-esque thread to connect Mormonism, the founding fathers, a lost tribe of Israel, and a few other threads made the story feel so contrived, it was hard to appreciate.

    "Trite"

    Disappointed in this James Rollins book. I usually enjoy his adventurous work. This effort did not come close to his earlier work. It reminded me to an assembly line - everything coming out the same.

    Story
    "Rollins veterans can predict the ending"

    This book kept me listening to the end, even if it isn't as good as the other Sigma Force novels. The early American history woven into ancient history, along with some comic book science. I did know the outline of the ending about half way through the novel, however. His books are generally good. This one is a little below par, but still listenable.

    "Juvenile and very poor narration"

    This book sounds/reads as though it was authored by a teenager, who had his friends proof read his work. Too much detail about the things that don’t matter to the story and not enough to the things that do. The narrator is seemingly unable to emote in any way other than anger or macho pride. However the narration problem that bothers me most is that the reader does not pause, or give any special “word weight” when times, location , or moments change… leaving me wondering when did this person come on the scene, only to realize the setting had changed and I missed is as it was glossed over.
    This is the first James Rollins book I have attempted to read/listen and I most likely won’t be back.

    "Not for me!!!"

    I was so intrigued about the premise of the story that I neglected to see that it was a "Sigma Force Novel" which obviously meant it was a shoot it up high adrenaline sort of a thrill ride. Not for me! Unless you want that, don't read this.

    "A little week on plot,"

    The Devil Colony, By James Rollin, is not the best of the Sigma books, but it is a good way of diverting time on a transcontinental flight. Plot and characters development transparent, weak and somewhat predictable. Hopefully the next book in this series will be better

    "Bogus history and unbelievable"

    While I don't expect thrillers to be really really believable. There is only so much suspension of disbelief I can muster. Every time these guys need something, it is magically to hand. The end of the world is due in 5 hours, then 4 minutes. They cover massive distances immediately, divert sattelites at will and fend of skilled men with autmatic weapons with two guys and a handgun. The forcing of real historical or religious material into aun believable mish=mash of a story is lame. The enternal attempts at suspense building by talking about how wondrous and horrifying a sight is without saying what it is is also lame.

    "The Devil Colony is a miss"

    This was completely unbelievable, had to stop listening about halfway through. Don't bother with this book.
