4.0 stars Having just finished book three of the Sigma Force series, I can certainly say I am a fan I love the premise which is basically special forces agents with PhDs in multiple sciences working for a secret arm of DARPA Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency hunting down rogue technology and terrorists Great action, smart, slick plots and a bunch of real good guy characters Certainly the literary equivalent of junk food but it really tastes good.
The truth is too beautiful to die and too monstrous to set free It sounded like a melodramatic statement on the part of a doomed Nazi scientist at first, but when I actually got to the ending of the book I felt that these words, repeated throughout the second half of the book, were truly appropriate for the conclusion of the book.Black Order felt a little different than Rollins other books It seemed a little less frantic, but also a little less coherent I attribute this to the fact that it simul [...]
In Black Order written by James Rollins, which is book number three of the Sigma Force series, our group returns to investigate a mysterious plague like disease that is sweeping it s way across the villages and temples surrounding Mount Everest The disease also causes some very intense episodes of psychotic behaviour that cause the infected to murder relentlessly Meanwhile, in other parts of the world, a powerful piece of Nazi technology is discovered, and one of the world s wealthiest families [...]
Curse you James Rollins You kept me up until nearly two a.m on a school night because I had to finish this book.As with any author, Mr Rollins has a distinctive style of writing, that leads me to know somewhat how the story will unfold Because of this, I can only read one of his books every couple of months Here s what I like about Mr Rollins s books 1 They fit directly into their genre2 No One is precious if you read him, I think you ll understand this a bit 3 The characters are real people, n [...]
It was a Fantastic read Detailed review coming soon

Well, I guess I ll never be a Rollins fan I feel a bit bad about this as I have friends here who really like his work bear that in mind and realize that my review is subjective s how I liked the book.This one is better imo than the other I read by Mr Rollins The Judas Strain , but still it lost me I mean you d think a book with Nazi scientists, mutant horrors, a chemical biological threat, daring rescues, harrowing escapes, actiond an the answer to the ultimate evolutionary questions would hold [...]
Director Painter Crowe and Commander Gray Pierce along with a few other Sigma Force colleagues again plunge into action and adventure to save the world from some scary super science This time around, the focus is on an intriguing concept which combines quantum mechanics and evolution and the efforts of a secretive dark group with roots in the Nazis a Black Order , if you will to both use it to create a master race and to weaponize it and devolve their enemies Romps through the Himalayas, Germany [...]
The best Sigma Force novel by far I ve also read no 5 I always learn so much about Science, Technology and History whenever I read a a Rollins that my head spins However, the science behind this novel is fascinating, for some they may find it a little hard to grasp, but his characters always explain it so well The evolutionary bits were amazing, and I find evolution so boring at school not any thanks to Physics As for the history there was clearly to the Nazis than I thought I won s spoil the [...]
Guess it just wasnt my style The dialog was predictable, trite, and read like a script to a mediocre summer action movie It didnt give enough credit to the readers, since instead of developing plot and story through understandable events and reactions, the characters stated obvious or unasked for details to each other Couldnt get into it On the plus side, it talked a little about some ideas about evolution and intelligent design in a somewhat creative way, but even this was washed out by lazy, f [...]
Kept me up late two nights That is why I gave it 4 stars.A wild roller coaster ride in Denmark,Nepal and South Africa Non stop action from start to finish.

I picked up James Rollins Black Order on another impulse buy, half certain that it was going to suck after I d gotten burned on my last attempt to impulse buy a thriller This time around I didn t get a spectacular read, but it turned out to be not half bad I did have the disadvantage of coming in partway into a series, which meant several character relationships had been established before the start of this particular story but it didn t hinder the telling of this one too much.Turns out this boo [...]

500 pages, should be 300 pages Wow was I looking forward to finishing this One of my favorite parts is where a character needs to restart a shield that is dropping over a doomsday machine and discovers the complex mechanism has blown a fuse He finds a fuse and all is won Really A fuse James Rollins, where was your editor
I generally compare all secret society illuminati techno conspiracy novels against Foucault s Pendulum, and against Da Vinci Code DVC is a 1, FP is a 5 The characters started out like the usual stock characters black ops guy, hawt female doc doing research, German engineers with Nazi allegiances etc ad yawn But then there was some actual character development I mean, than I hoped for from a mass market techno thriller They re developed along fairly predictable dimensions the characters who get [...]
This was a really unputdownable read, which I had to put down on several occasions just to savour the suspense, and to relish the last dash to run through the final third of the book I m afraid that, like the nasties of these books, I have also started enjoying the hunt I would like to describe this one as not only a great book with characters that would compel the reader to return to the Sigma Force , but also as a thriller that deals with enough scientific theories to force even class bunkers [...]
A basic potboiler The kind where every sentence is a new paragraph.Because it fills up the pages And sounds emphatic.But it s supposed to involve Nazis, science and quantum mechanics I can t wait to see how they do it.Updated to say I don t even remember if I finished the book.
Absolutely loved this book One of the best mystery, action adventure novels I have read The author pulled me in with his mystery of the Bell and the quantum theory behind the experiments The characters were genuine with all their strengths and weaknesses Just a thoroughly enjoyable book.
Volim Rollinsove knjige, pro itala sam sve 4 prevedene kod nas i sad nastavila itati ostale.Ova je tre i nastavak serijala Sigma Force.Zanimljiva je, napeta, radnja je brza, likovi nisu plo ni i dosadni.
Really enjoyed this book and the 3 different story arcs set in South Africa, Denmark and the Himalayas and how it all came together at the end of the book Looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
As always, another great Sigma Force novel

I thought this was a pretty decent book overall As with the previous books in this series the history and the science are blended together pretty well The science is extended into the realm of science fiction only where needed and it is done so with care I like and respect this as Rollins is able to take existing history and science and with only a very slight tweak it comes across as a very reasonable story backdrop My only issue continues to be the flatness of the characters or lack of develop [...]
If you like shoot em up thrillers mixed with Nazi supernatural evildoing like I do, this book is for you Gray Pierce and friends are back for an all new adventure, this time spanning Copenhagen, Germany, Nepal and South Africa This book dealt with quantum physics on an evolutionary level but don t let that stop you from reading it, it was not a bore It was truly thought provoking Along with the science, Rollins mystifies readers with space aged technology explored in his book, all properly docum [...]
