The second SIGMA Force novel. A whole new bunch of main characters, and even though there are some of the same characters as in the first book, they don't have humongous roles. Also, there were a ton of bones in this story.

It's not a surprising thriller plot. There's a horrible even at a church and so a team from the Vatican as well as a team from SIGMA get sent to figure out what happened and of course, get possession of the tech that did it.

There are two other groups also trying to find the tech of course, the Dragon Court, which I guess isn't evil in Real Life (a good thing) and The Guild, who were the bad guys in the first novel as well.

It was definitely thrilling and there were enough mysteries in it that I was kept guessing. Also, most of the characters, new and old alike, were interesting and different. And I worried a little if the romantic subplots would take over, but thankfully they didn't.

But, while I like a good twist as much as anyone, in this novel it seemed as though there were a few too many crossings, and double and triple crossings. At some points in the story very hard to tell who was on which team, or in which organization. Perhaps there were too many teams.

Still those couple of things aside it was an enjoyable read and a well written book. ( )

Reading a James Rollins' Sigma Force thriller is like reading a Dan Brown mystery, but instead of the hero being know-it-all symbologist, you get a team of know-it-all scientists who just happen to also be top secret CIA operatives. The members of this special ops group all have PhDs in some science discipline and have the strength and skill of any Olympic athlete. So much for the stereotype that geeks can't walk and chew gum! Lots of action and a good bit of historic mythology thrown in about ancient alchemists.

My only complaint about this specific title is that our dashing hero Gray keeps on thinking about the curves and lips of Rachel, his Italian carabinieri counterpart. Keep your mind on the mission - there are bad guys running all over the place. Definitely could see this as a Hollywood blockbuster. ( )

This book was... just ok. It was structured SO similarly to The DaVinci Code and I was unable to get past that. I felt like I was reading The DaVinci Code again with different names. It really didn't live up to the awesomeness of its name, and yes, I picked this book because the name sounded spectacular.

All that aside, I really enjoyed most of the characters. Gray was pretty cool. I liked that we were privy to some of his internal dialogue. It was interesting to see someone who exuded such strong vibes to his teammates fighting with himself in his head. Uncle Vigor was great too, even if he was a bit of a know it all. It did bug me some though, that he was nearly ALWAYS the one figuring out the puzzles. I would have liked more from Kat, but I liked what we did get from her. She was pretty bad ass, if I do say so myself.

One thing I will give this book good marks for is it's ability to just be picked up. I found out after I'd read a good chunk of the book that it was, in fact, the second in the series. You don't miss anything, as far as I can tell, by starting the series with this book. ( )

70 RMB from Carrefour Gubei, Shanghai.

15/11/07 Will probably start this today. I had to buy it when I read on the back that it involved people trying to steal the magi's bones from a German cathedral. I've visited the Kölner Dom many times and after paying for the tour several times, I knew enough about the cathedral to do a pretty good job as tour guide for our visitors.

24/11/07 Read over the last two days. Enjoyed the book but thought it got a bit shaky towards the end which is often the case in these books that involve uncovering some secret treasure or knowledge that has been hidden for hundreds or thousands of years. Anyway, it was interesting enough that I'll keep an eye out for more of his books. ( )

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.“

„Rolins je jedan od najinventivnijih savremenih pripovedača.“

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.
