I have not been a very good blogger this summer. I am still trying my best to read and blog but school is taking priority… As it should! I felt like it took me forever to get through this book, not because it was bad or anything. How many James Rollins books have I read that I hated? If you answered “none”, your right 🙂
In the Himalayan mountains, a monastery is under attack by an unknown illness said to be a product of a ghost light. Painter Crowe is sent to investigate where he meets Dr. Lisa Cummings, who also came from Mt. Everest to see if she could be of assistance. The attack is not over, Painter and Lisa are taken hostage and cannot get into contact with Sigma for assistance. Under the mountain they are kept in, they discover that Hitler’s vision of a perfect race is still alive but it comes at a price. Painter starts to show the same symptoms as the Monks causing panic in both his life and the lives of his captors. An explosion under the mountain drive the occupants out and across the world into South Africa for answers and a cure. They meet up with other Sigma operatives but discover something more terrifying than some hidden experiments; an evil as old as the Nazi’s themselves.
My blogs are going to start getting shorter, unfortunately. I still want to write these and provide book recommendations, I might not be as on time as I usually am. I really really enjoyed this book, as I do all the other Sigma Force Books. I think I am nearly read the whole series, minus 2 or 3 books. Theses books are the best because you do not have to read them in order. Each book has its own story, the characters carry over and some background stories but nothing major that you have to read them in order for.
Like all the other books, it was extremely fast paced and action packed. This one had a few slow parts but doesn’t every book? The characters travel all over the world and you get to see places like the Himalayan Mountains, Copenhagen, the United States. It is a fun ride. There is plenty of drama, shoot offs, bombs, adrenaline pumping actions. It was really cool to see all the characters start apart at the beginning of the book and by the end of it they are all under one roof band together to fight evil. That’s hero stuff right there!
There wasn’t anything bad about this book, other than the slow parts.
Overall, if you have not picked up a Sigma Force book, you need to….Now. Seriously. You don’t have to read them in order but you can if you want to.
