A remote military research station sends out a frantic distress call, ending with a chilling final command: Kill us all! Personnel from the neighboring base rush in to discover everyone already dead-and not just the scientists, but every living thing for fifty square miles is annihilated: every animal, plant, and insect, even bacteria.

The land is entirely sterile-and the blight is spreading.

To halt the inevitable, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma must unravel a threat that rises out of the distant past, to a time when Antarctica was green and all life on Earth balanced upon the blade of a knife. Following clues from an ancient map rescued from the lost Library of Alexandria, Sigma will discover the truth about an ancient continent, about a new form of death buried under miles of ice.

From millennia-old secrets out of the frozen past to mysteries buried deep in the darkest jungles of today, Sigma will face its greatest challenge to date: stopping the coming extinction of mankind.

But is it already too late?

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Alright The 6th Extinction/James Rollins>3*It’s Alright Have been a fan of James Rollins since reading one of his first books Map of Bones. In The 6th Extinction, once again, there is only a matter of hours to save the world. The book jumps around quite a bit and near the end I started skimming and even skipping. Eventually got tired reading about all the killer monsters, what they looked like, what they did, etc. etc. However, for a first time reader of this author it should prove to be an entertaining read. But after reading many of his other similar books think I need to give him a pass for awhile.
