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.

Review:

Reading a James Rollins is always a pleasure, he is an author who combines so many of my personal reading pleasures, there is the action of the story, the historic past of the back story, the familiar character of Sigma mixed with new faces, new bad guys(and girls) and a plot that is usually mind bogglingly twisty. Like all well told lies (according to the films/books) the best told lie or fiction, the one that people will really believe, is the one that contains as much truth as possible.

This is the true genius of James Rollins thrillers, the scope and depth of research is staggering, but then the author takes that, adds in his own knowledge and skills, and wraps it up in his… well,… convoluted mind is the only concept I can think to use and out comes a story, a story so crazy, so bizarre, yet so plausible that it scares the hell out of me reading it.

Each sigma tale shows how far mankind’s technological growth has outstripped its growth of morality, maybe, as part of the story shows we do need to reach for the immortality gene and live lives long enough to experience the folly of our mistakes and grab for profit over morality, to truly start to gain some wisdom and stop abusing the planet?

6th Extinction as with many Rollins tales leave me not wanting to talk too much about the plot, because to give anything away would be annoying as hell for me, so I won’t do it to another. I did however find that tied around all of the fantastic plot, and world ending disasters there was also a great deal of personal plot and growth for Sigma characters, the continual integration of the new with Jason, who continues to grow into a sigma star of the future, old favourites in Monk and of course Kowalski (also a surprise cameo of some really old characters).

Just finished this book after a few late nights! Difficult to put down and a great story line. I don't want to post a spoiler but there were a number of firsts with this book. A pretty unique story line, fast-paced action and a really strong ending. I have read so many books with a rushed ending that leave me deflated, almost as if a deadline was looming and it was refreshing to read a book with some good twists right up to the end. The other good thing about this book is that I would class it as asexual and not specifically written to appeal to males or females. Just a sprinkle of love interest, no sex, and enough action, gun info and geographical information to appeal to any male. Enjoyed it!

I'm an avid fan of James Rollins having read every book of his and this is one in a very very long line of great reads, he never lets us down with action packed adventures involving our past, present and future. With so much of the science behind his books being true how much faith can we have that we haven't already ruined our beautiful planet and what can we do to stop our own extinction or are we marking it worse for ourselves. For people like me that love James Rollins books there's a book club on Facebook called Sigma force base camp come check us out

The advanced teasers piqued my interest and I eagerly awaited this instalment from the Sigma team. As the plot started I was engrossed but unfortunately the pace slowed somewhat and the story became too incredulous. Overall, I think Michael Crichton does the advanced sci-fi scenarios better and Steve Berry the adventure historical fiction with more panache. This story was rather average for me and even core characters of Gray, Pierce, Monk not really standing out and Seichan only making a cameo.

James Rollins keeps bringing Sigma into a world that I never believed could exist. He throws adventure and despair coupled with die hard characters and raw emotions around like a rag doll sucking you in deeper into the midst of fear and apprehension as you turn page after page. Thank you for my moments of escapism that your books keep giving me.

Overall a really good book and James Rollins really shows his scientific knowledge once more. Where I struggle is with Rollins' one dimensional portrayal of characters - they're all geniuses with major faults. Can't we have a normal character who just happens to be good at what they do?

A fast paced action in true Rollins style. I really enjoy the mix of history,science and action. This novel is hard to put down, Rollins keeps you glued to the pages, desperate to know what's next. I also boggle at the fact vs fiction postscript. Has science really come so far?!
