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.

    "Fan of the series, but not this narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yeah, get a new narrator. I am very distressed to find that this guy narrates the next three books in the series. Not sure I'm willing to spend my money to listen to this guy again, no matter how good the story.


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

    Very strange diction, and his accents were off.

    "Can't go wrong with it"

    it seems every book in this series I'm saying the same thing, simply can't go wrong. it seemed as though this story had some stylistic differences compared to the previous ones but it was still fantastic. There are several plot points that really threw me for a loop and kept me on my toes. As always I can't wait to listen to the next one. My only knock on this one was the narration. It was good however we've had the same voices for some time and it felt as though there were less characters in this one due to the narration.

    Listener as I drive my 45 min drive back and forth to work. I love the action series and some of the more business/coaching self help stuff.

    "Good story, narration a bit heavy"

    I have been listening to the Sigma Force novels for a while now. Love the Characters and the writing. Sometimes the writing is a. It heavy on color, but still fun.
    This narrator was just not a good fit. The vocal color too prominent and over-bearing. It felt too much like a performance to me and not enough like a reading.

    "New narrator is bad"

    I love the sigma force series. I've been listening to them non-stop during my long daily commute. Peter Jay Fernandez's narration was excellent. He was especially excellent in voicing the different characters whether male or female. Christian Baskous's narration was very poor. His attempt at accents were awful and voicing of female characters even worse. It really made the story unbearable. What's worse is I've noticed that the next books in the series are all narrated by him. I pray that he gets better in the following stories. I don't why they didn't stay with Peter Jay Fernandez.

    "Wish I'd read the Reviews"

    The narrator for this book is truly terrible. I love James Rollins, but for this one I'll stick to the paperback. I've barely started and the idea of continuing makes me sick.

    "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.
