Bestselling author James Rollins is back with his next Sigma Force novel, and like the previous installments, in Eye of God he puts his known characters in situations that defy logic and the odds and their survival is brought into question. But they’re members of Sigma Force for a reason; this is what they do best.
Once again Rollins ramps up the thrill and stress levels to 11, with a tale that posits the possible apocalyptic end of the world. An expensive research satellite used in the study of dark energy gives a vision of a torn and burnt eastern US seaboard, and then crashes to Earth, deep within the harsh lands of Mongolia. Sigma Force is called in to get to that satellite and rescue its valuable cargo of information before it’s too late and the events foretold come to pass.
A package has also been delivered to the Vatican containing a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and an ancient book bound in human skin; the evidence points to the ancient Mongol king, Genghis Khan. These items also possess links to what the satellite image prophesied, and now Sigma Force must bring all the elements and evidence together and the doomsday clock is ticking.
Fans of the Sigma Force series will enjoy Eye of God, as Rollins brings back familiar characters, as well as introducing some new ones, and puts them in the ringer. Towards the end of the book, things seems to be taken a little too far and become perhaps too preposterous, even for Rollins, but then it seems each time the author sets out to top the events of his previous book in the most outlandish and incredible way possible.
