More About the Author

JAMES ROLLINS is the New York Times bestselling author of international thrillers, translated into more than forty languages. His Sigma series has been lauded as one of the "top crowd pleasers" (New York Times) and one of the "hottest summer reads" (People Magazine). In each novel, acclaimed for its originality, Rollins unveils unseen worlds, scientific breakthroughs, and historical secrets--and he does it all at breakneck speed and with stunning insight.

James Rollins decided to become a writer as a boy immersed in the scientific adventures of Doc Savage, the wonders of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, and pulps such as The Shadow, The Spider, and The Avenger. He honed his storytelling skills early, spinning elaborate tales that were often at the heart of pranks played on his brothers and sisters.

Although his talent emerged and grew, writing was not James' original profession. Before he would set heroes and villains on harrowing adventures, he embarked on a career in veterinary medicine, graduating from the University of Missouri and establishing a successful veterinary. This hands-on knowledge of medicine and science helps shape the research and scientific speculation that set James Rollins books apart.

The exotic locales of James Rollins novels have emerged as a hybrid between imagination, research, and James' extensive travels throughout the United States and Europe, as well as New Zealand, the South Pacific, China, Southeast Asia, Africa, Australia, and South America. Recent travel includes book tours and stops across the country and several European nations to meet readers and give talks, seminars, and media interviews.

In recent years, much of James' travel has involved meeting readers in small and large groups, at writing and fan conferences, and even aboard seagoing "seminars." James' mentoring temperament and coaching skills have made him a sought-out writing instructor and guest speaker for workshops, symposia, conventions, and other forums throughout the country. He is among the core faculty of the annual Maui Writer's Conference and Retreat.

James Rollins is the author of seven thrillers in the bestselling Sigma Force series (Sandstorm, Map of Bones, Black Order, The Judas Strain, The Last Oracle, The Doomsday Key, and The Devil Colony, Bloodline); six individual adventure thrillers; the blockbuster movie novelization, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull; and the Jake Ransom middle grade series (Jake Ransom and the Skull King's Shadow, Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx, and more coming in 2013). The ninth Sigma Force adventure, The Eye of God, is coming in Summer 2013.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Wow one of the first books I have rushed into work to write an online review about even before I have finished it. This book is like a cross between Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt,Jack Bauer from 24 and a good helping of Matthew Reilly's Scarecrow plus a bit of Jaws. Great underwater imagination, fantastic characters, great story about the possible end of the world and brilliant excitement, cant wait to get back to it. I read a number of reviews before and bought all his books I can find so looking forward to reading all his others. Can recommend it enough.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 July 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
James Rollins was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1961. With his three brothers and three sisters, he was raised in the Midwest and rural Canada. He graduated with a doctorate in veterinary medicine from the University of Missouri and went on to establish his own veterinary practice in Sacramento, California. His sense of adventure often takes him either underground or underwater.

This is the another action packed adventure from the author, whose books for me anyway are consistently good and always an enjoyable read. Long may he continue to write them for his growing number of fans. Some writers have an immediate impact and then die away. James Rollins has slowly built his reputation over a period of years, what you might call a slow burner, but all the better for it.

The new millennium's first eclipse of the sun, looked forward to by many people as a natural phenomenon rarely seen in the span of a human lifetime casts a shroud over the Earth. And then catastrophe struck . . .

Solar flares have triggered a series of gargantuan natural disasters. Earthquakes and hellfire rock the globe. The death toll begins to rise at an unprecedented rate. And in the midst of chaos, Air Force One and America's president have vanished from the skies . . .

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Escapist nonsense doesn't come much brasher and bolder than this. Suspend all belief and enjoy the rollercoaster ride that is delivered by this tale of natural disasters shaking up the world. This potboiler has the lot: a traumatised hero, his arch enemy, a love interest, nuclear war, lost continents, magical crystals, you name it.
I would deduct one star for the ending, which smacks a touch of the author having painted himself into a corner and using a cheap trick to get out of it. But, who's complaining? It's all tripe, anyway. Hugely readable and enjoyable nonsense, but nonsense nevertheless.
It would make a mighty fine blockbuster movie, for sure.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A series of natural disasters bring the remnants of a lost civilisation into the light of day and reveal a mystery that must be solved quickly if the world and all of mankind is to be saved.
Many stories require the reader to take a step back from reality but this novel requires a tremendous leap. That said, the fast paced, action packed adventure makes for an enjoyable read. Despite a slight tendency to lecture in places rather than tell the story, the author carries his improbable plot so well that the pages seem to turn themselves.
The characters have personality and enough depth that you genuinely care what happens to them.
I shall definitely buy the next book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
James Rollins has done it yet again with his new novel. While in the past, many of his works are riddled with themes of lost civilizations and their eventual discoveries, i think that Rollins has outdone himself with this novel (in a good way). The first 50 pages are quite hard to get through but once you've passed those, the book doesnt disappoint. It's essentially like reading a movie, the action never stopped! Also, if you missed reading Tino Georgiou's masterpiece--The Fates, go and read it.

The book in general is great. Rollins' true-to-form fast action all the way through was brilliant, that is until the last few pages. I won't spoil it for future readers.
The ending was, in my opinion a bit corny and an anticlimax to say the least. It has been well-used in quite a few books, films, and tv dramas.
Don't let this review put you off reading the novel and see if you agree with my comments.
I highly recommend the rest of the Sigma Force books.

This was another fast paced thriller from Rollins. I loved the pace, storyline and characters - if you love his books then I'm sure you'll love this one to. I would thoroughly recommend.

A good old fashioned ripping yarn! An ideal holiday read - would have got 5 stars if the scientific background had been researched a little better. But that aside, a good read.
