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.

    "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.

    "Not what I expected"

    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.

    "Great series. But this narrator is pretty bad."

    I love the series, they are really interesting and fun to listen to. But this narrator is the worst in this series so far. His accents aren't very good and they change from book to another. Maybe I'm just being a bit critical, but it's annoying..

    Story
    "Terrible reading of an interesting tale"
    Would you try another book from James Rollins and/or Christian Baskous?

    I have been reading the Sigma Force novels in sequence. The reading by Christian Baskous is so difficult to listen to that my enthusiasm for the next story is severely dampened.


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

    The plot continued the series's mix of science and historic intrigues though with a little less of the frenetic pace of some of the other books.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His accents were laughable. The Italians sounded like they were Asian Transylvanians. His decisions about pacing and word emphasis intruded on the underlying writing rather than complementing it. Good readers disappear and let the characters and the writing come to the fore. In this case, the reader stayed front and center and hindered access to the story.

    What did you love best about The Eye of God?

    Story was great! Such a mixture of science and history and archaeology and suspense


    How could the performance have been better?

    Peter J Fernandez has been a fabulous narrator. Bring him back!

    "Horrible narrator!"

    The story is well worth listening to this book . But I really wish that Peter J Fernandez had read the book. Nothing ruins a series like changing the narrator in the middle of the series . Took some getting used to , but after listening to first few chapters I was hooked by the story and the narrator didn't seem so bad .

    "Good story, bad performance."

    I finished it. The story was good and a good addition to the series. The performance was pretty bad, but only because of the various accents attempted. Some characters went from Asian to Hispanic and back again between scenes. I blame whoever made the decision to change up narrators.
