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?

    "The Devil Colony"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Devil Colony to be better than the print version?

    Audio.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Devil Colony?

    Once again James Rollings had delivered a great suspenseful book. It kept me on the edge of my seat and can't wait to see what happens next. Every character has their own story and I left with the "what's next" and the frustration of having to wait for the next book!!


    Which character – as performed by Peter Jay Fernandez – was your favorite?

    The narrator does justice in protraying all the characates. None of them are cheated. Heard there was a movie coming and Peter Jay Fernandez has set the standars very high for the actors who will protray them.


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

    Warning...Spoiler ... someone's mom dies.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend all of James Rollings books!! Worth every credit and more!!

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Should be Classified Sci-Fi"

    Starts with a Dan Brown type of story line but takes it a little too far into the realm of Sci-Fi. I won't be buying another book in the Sigma Force series.

    "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.
