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?

    "Historical Mystery & Fate Of The World At Stake"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Devil Colony to be better than the print version?

    I think that the audio version did impress a bit more emotional resonance that the simple printed word did.


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

    Yes actually. The fascinating historical mysteries investigated as well as the scientific developments and discoveries discussed made for very interesting listening.


    What about Peter Jay Fernandez’s performance did you like?

    His performance seemed to fit the characters well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Wanted to - sure. Able to - not so much. I think it would be great for a long car or plane trip. Or, as I used it, as part of my daily commute.


    Any additional comments?

    As with the rest of James Rollin's SIGMA books, recommended. Interesting characters. Good writing. Fascinating ideas explored.

    "Another great story!"

    I don't know how Rollins manages to take completely unrelated topics and weave them into realistic and relevant plots. The characters are engaging and believable. Don't know why this book did not have the "What's real and what's not" addendum at the end, hence the four stars for story. Maybe that was just this particular Audible production, but I really missed it. Great narrator!

    "Love Sigma Force"

    Love all the Sigma Force novels when Peter Jay Fernandez narrates! I've read just about all of them and I know there is going to be action and a puzzle to figure out!

    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

    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.
