The Eye of God: A Sigma Force Novel, Book 9

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.

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.

    "Best Sigma Force so far"
    What did you love best about The Eye of God?

    The story line is very current and very activating.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, this series usually follows a single group, this book was different and it kept me on the edge knowing they would converge but never knowing how.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes Owen Vigor was talking to Rachel in Mongolia. Don't want to be a spoiler but if you've followed this series it will grab you too.

    "Why change the narrator?"
    Would you try another book from James Rollins and/or Christian Baskous?

    Yes Rollins - no Baskous.


    What didn’t you like about Christian Baskous’s performance?

    The NEW narrator totally changed the characters by adding new accents and personalities. Terrible performance.


    Any additional comments?

    When the same person has narrated 7 of 8 of the previous books in the series, why change now? All the characters have changed. Some developing new accents they didn't have before. Totally changed the perceptions of each of them - and not for the better. Made the book my least favorite of a well written series. Too bad.

    "READ the book"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have followed this series for many years - one of my favorites. The story line did change but it is still enjoyable.The narrator is awful, he seems to stop at the end of a line not the end of a sentence. His inflections are totally wrong for the actions at hand. I LOVE the books Rollins writes. He has started another series and unfortunately this narrator narrates- I will dust off my library card and read the book.

    "Not as good as others in the series."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes - if reading the series.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This plot was more predictable than some others in the series.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    New reader for this book. The characters' voices were too similar-- the Italian characters sounded Asian, like the Asian characters.

    "The narrator made an OK book awful"
    What disappointed you about The Eye of God?

    The SIGMA series has been fun to follow although this one seemed more complex - or far fetched - than usual. Perhaps the abridged version would be better. But what really upset the apple cart was the narrator. Couldn't put my finger on it until I realized I felt like I was listening to Marty Stouffer narrating one of his "Wild America" segments. Great film footage but couldn't stand his (to my ears) condescending voice. Furthermore, the narrator's reading of various characters doesn't seem to be consistent. My wife and I usually listen together while we're driving but she threw in the towel and said no more because of this narrator. I'll continue to listen on my own when we're parked but I'm not sure I'll make it to the end either.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Not there yet.


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

    No. In fact were this narrator to do a book by an author I've liked in the past, it would be reason enough not to order.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the reviewers made an excellent point about changing a narrator of a series and how it would be like changing actors in a popular TV series. Imagine Indian Jones being played by anyone else but Harrison Ford. And look at how changing actors for movies has impacted the series - like Batman, or any of the James Bond movies.

    "Narrator Blows It"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I agree with a previous reviewer in that losing the old narrator was like replacing an actor in the middle of a good series. Bad accents, weird cadence, incongruous New England accent - all these ruin the flow and make the entire experience disappointing.

    "Just beginning this and I agree"

    Haven't gotten very far. I do not like the narrator. Going to be tough listening and following this one. James Rollins is a big favorite and I am already disappointed.

    "Did not care for the narrator."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, a different narrator. Had Armand Schultz or Lou Phillips Diamond or a number of others narrated the book, I would have enjoyed it so much.


    What didn’t you like about Christian Baskous’s performance?

    His cadence was off and his accent during straight narration changed so often.

    "Poorest narrator I've listened to."
    What would have made The Eye of God better?

    A better narrator I lost interest in the book and it was hard to get through.


    If you’ve listened to books by James Rollins before, how does this one compare?

    A poor effort, I've never had to struggle to finish any sigma series books before this one.


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

    No, he's terrible.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I hate when narrators change in a series, it's usually never better.
