Publisher's Summary

In The Eye of God, a Sigma Force novel, New York Times best-selling author James Rollins delivers an apocalyptic vision of a future predicted by the distant past.

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.

Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force set out to discover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery going back to the birth of Christianity, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity.

    "Love the Series"

    I continue to be a huge fan of the Sigma Force Series. However the change in narrators is immediately notable and not for the the better. I've had to repeat entire chapters because I find myself tuning him out. It's took me 3x as long to finish this book as it did the last novel. Such a shame!

    "Loved the story - not so much the reader"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It is difficult for a narrator to come into the middle of a series. I sympathize. But Christian had some serious difficulties with accents which was very distracting. I love listening to books narrated. But I may not continue with this series if Christian will continue to be the narrator of choice. Sorry Christian!

    "Good Story. Narration... Not so much"

    As all Sigma books this has the right twists and suspense and vilans. But the narration wasn't at same level. It take some time to be used with monotone way that Mr. Baskous imposes on his reading. Not good on action descriptions neither dialogs. I miss Mr. Peter Jay Fernandes. He was way better in tone, voices and above all, emotions.

    "Good story as usual but distracting narration"

    Unfortunately this is one of the first times I'll submit a negative review. While I am enjoying the sigma series the new narrator for The Eye of God was a distracting element in the book. The narrator's use of varying dialects were IMO horrible. The Italian didn't sound Italian and the Asian sounded borderline offensive. I even asked a second opinion of Asian family to be sure and the consensus was it sounded forced. Thank you for trying to create an immersive atmosphere for the listener but this was a hit hit and a miss.

    "When fiction is just too unreal"

    I'm a fan of the Sigma series and realize fiction is fiction, but this book is just rediculous. A great thing happens with Grey in the book, but that's about all that is good in this book. I'm glad I did not read this one first. The book reader of this book sucks too.

    "Total Performance Disaster"

    Could not finish the book. The performance was so awful i could not focus on the story. the accents were the worst... borderline offensive. i also struggled with the similarity between the narrator's voice and that of The Brain (Animaniacs cartoon character extra).

    Story
    "Eye of God is not Performed well"
    Would you try another book from James Rollins and/or Christian Baskous?

    The Eye of God was a good story but it was ruined my the Narrator Christian Baskous. So many times I just was done listening to his bad characters accents. In what world do you get a director of a government agency as important as Sigma with such a bad stereo typical southwest Native American accent when the characters tribe is from the Northeast. Not to mention the terrible Italian and Asian characters.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Bring back Peter


    Any additional comments?

    Why kill off Racheal and her uncle? This was pointless. I get you wanted to play with an alternate universe that they are living happy and that time can bend, but it could have been done way better. Maybe with a window that allowed Gray to see his mother alive and happy at the time the two energies were countering each other out.
