Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This book was incredible. The science was so accurate and intelligent it made you think this was really happening, but it was explained in a way that anyone would understand. I loved every aspect of it and really got connected to the characters who showed real emotional prowess.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The 6th Extinction This story is another one of James Rollins fast paced reads. I always enjoy the references to history, now and in the past. He brings to life the lives of the people involved in his stories and his heroes in Sigma Force. I particularly like the way this author explains what is fiction, what is based on fact and recommends additional materials if one wishes to further read up on the materials in his books. I look forward to his next adventure.
