    Rollins has outdone himself!

    I just finished reading The Bone Labyrinth, the 11th volume in The Sigma Force Series, by New York Times bestselling author James Rollins. This much anticipated novel was a long time coming, but oh my, it was well worth the wait. While reading, it felt good to be back in the company of old friends. Jim can pull you into a book faster than anyone I know. If the blurb on the dust jacket doesn't lure you in, page one or even the first paragraph will grab you by the lapels, slam you up against the wall and throw your butt into a chair - where you will be lost to the world until you turn the very last page, finally being able to take a breath, and put the book down. His written word crystallizes into an action-packed adrenalin rush! I don't know how he does it, but each novel keeps getting better and better. Whether it is because the world is changing so quickly, adding new computer technologies to research with or finding previously undiscovered, exotic locations to explore. I suspect, it could be the fact he has become so comfortable in his character's skin, writing about them is second nature to him. (I honestly believe if we were granted access to Jim's writing cave, we would find, sitting on his desk, a pen holder with 7 magical pens. Instead of using ink, each pen would be filled with the essence and very soul of each character, and as Jim writes, they are brought to life on the page.) {I have made references to Jim writing with pen and ink in past musings. I know he uses a computer, but I like to put a little spin of Old World romanticism into these reviews.} Painter Crowe, Lisa Cummings, Grayson Pierce, Seichan, Kat Bryant, Monk Kokkalis, and Joe Kowalski are, I have come to feel, an extended part of my family. I have laughed and celebrated many joyous occasions with each and every one of them and I have shed tears and mourned heartbreaking moments over the course of these novels. I have stowed away on each of their Top Secret, dangerous missions, hiding in the dark recesses trying to remain unobtrusive in the background. I have scaled the highest mountains, traversed the bottoms of the deepest oceans, trekked through cold, frozen wastelands, endured the harsh heat of burning deserts and clawed my way through dark, muggy, vine infested tropical rainforests alongside these characters - all without leaving the comfort and safety of my couch at home. What a magnificent way to travel! This latest entry in the Sigma Force series was a whopper of a story! One that is going to be hard to forget. Animals! How I do love a storyline involving animals. Especially a highly intelligent gorilla. Reading this book was like riding a conveyor belt at accelerated speed, with no brakes, through the history and development of mankind and our relative intelligence. The enemy strikes! And they strike hard. Like a battle out of Greek Mythology, they attack Sigma's Achilles Heel, bringing them to their knees in their struggle against an unleashed wrath that threatens the world with crushing defeat. Do they have the strength to fight back? Join the Sigma team as they undertake an epic, global journey in their search for an ancient evil. An evil with a blueprint detailing the origins of man and containing a hidden codicil that could wind up rewriting human history. An evil reawakened by modern man through genetic science. An evil that threatens man's existence. This book abounds with technological and scientific dialogue, but Jim writes it in such a language that is easy to follow and you're able to keep up and understand what's happening. This Sigma Force mission has been the scariest journey I have been on in a long while. It kept me awake night after night. And, not just from staying up late to read. It affected my consciousness. I could not turn my mind off. It made me stop and think long after I finished the book. It instilled in me a need to investigate further. That, my friends, is the hallmark of a great writer. This Sigma Force addition has been, I think, a breathtaking adventure for all of us. I, for one, will be sitting on pins and needles waiting for the next mission to sweep me off my feet. James Rollins is a Master (or, as I have called him in the past - a fantastical Wizard of Words) when it comes to the 'history/science/action-adventure' genre of writing. How he continues to keep coming up with new and fresh storylines amazes me. Closing the book after reading the last page, I tell myself 'This is my favorite' - and then . . . the next one comes along. I believe Jim summed it up best, "Sigma's greatest and boldest adventures are still on the horizon". What a truly wondrous future of reading we have to look forward to! I can hardly wait! How about you?

    Thought provoking but standard Rollins

    Grim reading in places around animal testing, but otherwise the usual stuff you'd expect from a Sigma Force novel. Interesting scientific/historical elements incorporated into the action genre and Rollins does a good job of signposting further reading to allow you to make up your own mind.

    The Bone Labyrinth

    This is the first time I've read a James Rollins book. I enjoyed it so much that, upon completing it, I immediately ordered the 2nd and 3rd books in the Sigma Force series. His research and writing are both right in my "wheel house" of the type of books I enjoy most.....books that are written with interesting characters, the proper amount of tension breaking humor, and research that readers can actually learn something from. I have immediately become a big fan of James Rollins.
