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.

    "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.

    "Always fun to read"

    I enjoy Rollins characters; they are folks I could invite home and I miss them when the book's over. Story line is creative with a foot in facts with a good measure of fantasy.

    The narrator in this book took a few hours to get used to. He tried too hard to do foreign accents so most foreigners sounded like they were Asian but raised in Italy. He improved toward the end or I got accustomed to him.

    "Excellent Story - horrible narrator"

    Love the books!!! Dislike the narrator. He is hard to listen to. I lost focus many times as he was slow to speak and very monotone.

    "I don't understand the criticism"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I have been a big fan of the series since the first book. This one carried on with shifting locals, new characters blending with those we know, really bad villains, interesting historical connections.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Father Vigor, full of purpose even facing personal tragedy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The seal coming to rescue Jada.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Have no idea about these things.


    Any additional comments?

    I do not understand all the bad reviews about the narration. I had no problem staying with the story and did not feel distracted in the least. I'll have no problem listening to other books with the same narrator. I hope some people did not decide not to get this book because of those reviews because they missed a really good story.

    "Narration is DEPLORABLE!"
    What did you like best about The Eye of God? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed the story. As with most of Rollins' books, I liked the way that he tied things together. This one was certainly a stretch but I'm willing to suspend belief for a while when I'm reading.

    As for what I liked least.....dear God....the narration.


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

    Absolutely not. I already got the next Rollins/Baskous book and I've decided to return it. Baskous may be a good fit for some books (those that have only one character) but he can't come close to pulling off these books. His accents are horrible. Most of the time he made Rachel sound more Asian than Seichan and the fact that he couldn't correctly pronounce Vigor nearly drove me to start smoking.


    Any additional comments?

    I can only assume that Christian Baskous is blackmailing James Rollins because there really is no other plausible explanation as to why he would continue to sign off on letting this man narrate his books. Save the credit.

    I had really high hopes for this one. My first read of Rollins. Was more "background noise than a page turner. Barely kept my attention.
