Did take thge direction i thought it would and the author can write, but Do we really need a gun fight every other page? There were two different novels, Vatican priest, the scientists and the action hero's vying for page room with triad bosses and north Korean nuclear scientists and former orphon assassins looking for mum and all under 400 hundred pages, bargain as far as reading bad books goes but was quiet an expensive paper back for it size.
Is it James bony type novel or Dan brown type? Attila and Genghis khan and lots of gun fights... But the world is a better place by the end...
Spoiler...
The new boss of macau and Hong Kong is improving the lives of proustites under her care!
Started OK but first spanner in the works was credibility issues, a key north korean nuclear scientist in Macau, without any protection, two american agents running around getting into gun fights with many explosions, in Macau, hong knot, north Korean capital, as well as one of the central Asian republics... Enough to start a world war and lay waste to america and the world.
I did suspect that attempts to retrieve atop secret satellite from mangolia, near boarders of Russia and China would lead to a quick nuclear war but no..... Spoilers...

Quantum entanglements!

I do love this author and have never been dissapointed in his storylines which always have a good scientific base to them. This one is about dark matter which our universe is aparently full of. It covers ripples in time and ancient historical relics, the vatican get involved and it all adds up to a wonderful book I just could not put down. I love the Sigma force and although some do get killed off in this one I hope this is not a trend that will continue. As with most of Rollins books he gives you the basis of his research at the end of the book which only makes the story so much more interesting.

Rollins is back with a cracking Sigma action packed adventure. As Seichan searches for her mother, she and Gray take on the triads in Hong Kong and Macau as well as the North Korean army. At the same time we have a search for Ghenkis Khan's tomb with hidden secrets that may affect dark power sufficient to diffuse the path of a comet. This fast paced story holds tight through to the end is a return to form. Recommended.

A very interesting and thought provoking read "Fact or Fiction"? Once again we find our friends at Sigma on different missions but they all come to a head in the final chapters. There are some interesting personal developments for some characters and also some shocking consequences. James Rollins certainly knows how to keep you turning the pages and wanting more, bring on the next.

From start to finish it held me enthralled I could not put it down. The characters were great again all the favourites from SIGMA . The details and descriptions of places and happenings was staggering . So much research goes into his novels it makes them so plausible. Great stuff. One of my favourite authors . Ace .

I always look forward to the next James Rollin, especially the Sigma Force novels, but the last two haven't quite come up to scratch. It felt formulaic and the ending was a disappointment. I would like to see a return to the form shown in Map of Bones.

With all the usual sigma force characters & new comers too this episode in the Sigma Force collection yet again leaves me itching to read the next episode, the fact intertwined with fiction makes this a very hard book to put down, Sigma Force have been consistently reinvented, emotional ups & downs, fast paced and memorable....well done James Rollins
