Gostei bastante deste segundo livro da série Sigma. O autor consegue manter o leitor preso num suspense permanente e tem uma escrita que torna ao leitor fácil de visualizar a ação a decorrer tal como se fosse um filme de aventuras empolgante.
Este livro aborda os ossos dos Reis Magos e coloca a hipótese das relíquias não serem apenas aquilo que aparentam ser, tratando de temas que são elaborados mas interessantes como a supercondutividade de materiais como o ouro. Também explora (um pouco a la Dan Brown) a seita da Corte do Dragão formada no tempo dos Templários e o clássico desejo de querer construir linhagens perfeitas e obter um poder tremendo através do conhecimento e informação escondida na História.
As personagens são sólidas e simpáticas, despertando desde já a curiosidade para ler o terceiro livro. Esta série Sigma parece apresentar-se como uma boa leitura de descontração e visualização cinematográfica.

Interrogo-me porque razão nenhum estúdio adaptou os livros deste autor ao cinema. Espero que não demore. ( )

Just when you think you're safe to go to church . . . . What should be an ordinary midnight service celebrating the Feast of the Three Kings turns into absolute bedlam when what looks like a cloaked group of monks overtake a church in Germany looking for significant relics. True readers of the Sigma force series will be introduced to new characters in the ongoing battle of Sigma vs. the Guild. Painter Crowe is assimilating into his new role of the head of Sigma, which means his problems are never ending. Painter has now received a call informing him about the attack of the church in Germany, and is expected to form a team to send to the Vatican. Cue in Rachel, part of the Cultural Heritage Police ; basically an organization involved in attempting to stop thieves from buying and selling priceless antiquities on the black market. It seems only natural that Rachel is targeted due to not only her profession, but her ties to her Uncle in the Vatican. Rachel's Uncle, Vigor, head of Christian archaeology within the Vatican, is attempting to dig through the myriad of secret archives contained within Vatican walls. He's in search of any information regarding the biblical Magi, and any connections that may lead to the attack in the German church. So why would a secret room, in the furthest part of the Vatican archives be booby trapped to set fire to priceless documents? Better yet, who else is granted such high level access? And why would two Vatican issued vehicles attack Rachel? What connects the Guild to the Vatican? Map of Bones is perfect for those who enjoy history. This book is full of popes, and antipopes, relatives to Vlad the Impaler, and a Nazi sympathizer. Enjoy decoding the secrets of this scavenger hunt through ancient history, in modern times. I truly recommend this book for anyone- whether you're a natural history buff or not (I'M NOT!) you will become wrapped up in all the adventures. ( )

The second book in the Sigma Force series is in the same genre as Dan Brown's books such as The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol. Puzzles to be solved; race against time. However, I do believe Rollins is a better writer than Brown. ( )

page turner - very impressed with the amount of scientific research that went into this novel and yet it doesn't deter from the fast paced action ( )

Izuzetan spoj akcije, avanture i religijsko-okultnog trilera, intelektualno provokativan i uzbudljiv

U jednoj od najpoznatijih katedrala u Nemačkoj, na misteriozan način pobijeni su svi koji su prisustvovali ponoćnoj misi. Iz crkve je odneto neprocenjivo blago – mošti tri biblijska kralja koji su darivali Hrista, legendarna tri mudraca.
Komandant Grej Pirs, novi član odeljenja Sigma, predvodi tim agenata u potrazi za Imperijalnim redom zmaja, tajnim društvom aristokrata čiji su koreni negde u tami srednjeg veka, a cilj im je da, uz pomoć mističnih kostiju, stvore novi svetski poredak. Lavirint tragova ostavljenih u davnoj prošlosti vodi agente Sigme kroz evropske gotske katedrale, preko ostataka sedam čuda Starog sveta do magičnih mesta na kojima su nauka i religija sjedinjeni i predstavljaju pretnju kakva nije viđena od početka vremena.

„Mapa kostiju, roman o starom tajnom društu i potrazi za neprocenjivim antikvitetom, sigurno se može porediti sa Den Braunovim Da Vinčijevim kodom, ali je, u svakom pogledu, mnogo bolja knjiga. Tamo gde je Braunov bestseler predvidiv uprkos dobroj postavci, ova priča je mudro vođena i napeta.“
Buklist

„Rolins je jedan od najinventivnijih savremenih pripovedača.“

Epigraph
Na de plundering van de stad Milaan onder keizer Barbarossa werden de heilige relieken toegewezen aan Reinhold von Dassel, aartsbisschop van Keulen (1159-1167). Deze schat werd de Duitse aartsbisschop toegewezen vanwege zijn verdiensten als rijkskanselier onder deze keizer. Niet iedereen was blij dat een dergelijke schat Italië verliet...en dat ging dan ook niet zonder slag of stoot.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060765240, Mass Market Paperback)

The bones lead to ancient mysteries and present-day terror . . . To follow them means death.

During a crowded service at a cathedral in Germany, armed intruders in monks' robes unleash a nightmare of blood and destruction. But the killers have not come for gold; they seek a more valuable prize: the bones of the Magi who once paid homage to a newborn savior . . . a treasure that could reshape the world.

With the Vatican in turmoil, Sigma Force under the command of Grayson Pierce leaps into action, pursuing a deadly mystery that weaves through sites of the Seven Wonders of the World and ends at the doorstep of an ancient, mystical, and terrifying secret order. For there are those with dark plans for the stolen sacred remains that will alter the future of humankind . . . when science and religion unite to unleash a horror not seen since the beginning of time.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:15 -0400)

Armed monks ransack the massive Gothic cathedral in Cologne, Germany, ancient relics are stolen, and hundreds of people are murdered. Commander Gray Pierce and his team begin a harrowing search for the secrets to a mysterious ancient power.
