Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my favorite Sigma Force novel It took me forever to get through this book, and while it has been a busy three weeks, I just wasn't that disposed in picking up the tome and reading it. It simply wasn't holding my interest. There was nothing especially original or exciting about this novel except the final scenes which were explosive if not overly original either. This has been a good enough series that I certainly won't quit on it, but I prefer Mr. Rollins' stand alone novels to the Sigma series if truth be told.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Doomsday Key by James Rollins James Rollins action/adventure thriller novels are always far fetched, though the scientific details always have a basis in fact. This time, in The Doomsday Key, the scientific storyline delves into the areas of genetically modified foods, fungal viruses and super enzymes. The regular cast of characters are there, Gray, Monk, Painter, etc. with the addition of Rachel and Seichan in a new twist. I'm always very keen on the scientific elements and arcane bits of knowledge, and in this, the novel does not disappoint. But The Doomsday Key does have too much of an overemphasis of the scientific problem at hand and I missed the emotional intensivness of the past two novels in the series, The Last Oracle and The Judas Strain. I found this storyline less balanced and fluid in the doling out of details and the switching between description and character interaction. Consequently the pace of the story gets bogged down. But the storyline is redeemed with the emotional wrenching and poignant events at the end that wrap up all the loose ends. James Rollins certainly thrills me and he will you too!

Editorial Reviews

“Rollins’s prose explodes off the page in a twisty and compelling thriller....Swashbuckling adventure, elite team effort, and religious symbology all add up to another gripping and terrifying read....An amazing and brilliant technothriller that might be his best to date.
