The Bone Labyrinth
The Bone Labyrinth: A Sigma Force Novel | James Rollins
A war is coming, a battle that will stretch from the prehistoric forests of the ancient past to the cutting-edge research labs of today, all to reveal a true mystery buried deep within our DNA, a mystery that will leave readers changed forever . . . In this groundbreaking masterpiece of ingenuity and intrigue that spans 50,000 years in human history, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins takes us to mankind’s next great leap. But will it mark a new chapter in our development . . . or our extinction? In the remote mountains of Croatia, an archaeologist makes a strange discovery: a subterranean Catholic chapel, hidden for centuries, holds the bones of a Neanderthal woman. In the same cavern system, elaborate primitive paintings tell the story of an immense battle between tribes of Neanderthals and monstrous shadowy figures. Who is this mysterious enemy depicted in these ancient drawings and what do the paintings mean? Before any answers could be made, the investigative team is attacked, while at the same time, a bloody assault is made upon a primate research center outside of Atlanta. How are these events connected? Who is behind these attacks? The search for the truth will take Commander Gray Pierce of Sigma Force 50,000 years into the past. As he and Sigma trace the evolution of human intelligence to its true source, they will be plunged into a cataclysmic battle for the future of humanity that stretches across the globe . . . and beyond. With the fate of our future at stake, Sigma embarks on its most harrowing odyssey ever—a breathtaking quest that will take them from ancient tunnels in Ecuador that span the breadth of South America to a millennia-old necropolis holding the bones of our ancestors. Along the way, revelations involving the lost continent of Atlantis will reveal true mysteries tied to mankind’s first steps on the moon. In the end, Gray Pierce and his team will face to their greatest threat: an ancient evil, resurrected by modern genetic science, strong enough to bring about the end of man’s dominance on this planet. Only this time, Sigma will falter—and the world we know will change forever.

This had all the elements to make me a happy reader. History. Science. Ethos dilemma. All wrapped up in his action packed save the world thriller ride!

When you finish a book, sob about a dying dog, then immediately add the author's entire backlist to your Amazon wish list...I loved everything about this book. It made me laugh and cry and gasp and yell out in indignation. It was an emotional rollercoaster to say the least and I can't wait to get my hands on more by James Rollins! Brad Thor's quote on the back cover nailed it.

TobeyTheScavengerMonk This sounds cool. Is it part of a series? 2y
Texreader @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Yes the Sigma Force series. This was the best so far. He's my fave author. I read most of them out of order. The characters have their own personal back stories so it messes with that but not really the overall stories which stand on their own. 2y

My fave James Rollins book so far has a Caucasian/Eurasian (Vietnamese) couple so it qualifies for #diverselovestories today for #feistyfeb. They are enemies turned lovers so they are also among the #unconvincingcouples for #booklove17. First time I've satisfied two challenges with one book!

I liked this book a lot more than most of Rollins' recent ones. They spend too much time with Gray and Seichan. This one was all about Kowalski. He and Monk are my favorites. The animal testing aspect WAS very hard to read. I cried a lot. The bond with Kowalski and Baako was so touching. The hint at the end made me sad. I had almost given up on Rollins but this one pulled me back in.

Kat_Reads James Rollins is one of my favorite authors! Have you read anything else by him? 2y
MaleficentBookDragon @Kat_Reads I've read all the Sigma series except for The Seventh Plague (I pick that up at the library tomorrow). I have not read Kill Switch or War Hawk yet. I am on the second of the Sanguine Series he wrote with Rebecca Cantrell. I LOVE his stand alone novels like Amazonia, Deep Fathom and Ice Hunt (where we first meet Kowalski) the best. 2y
Kat_Reads I'm working on the sigma series as I need breaks from more intense reading. My favorites have been subterranean and the 6th extinction! 2y

I always enjoy his books. Lots of action and suspense. This is not my favourite of his as I found the animal testing parts difficult to read but overall a enjoyable fast paced story.

Just finished and a large part is #booksetinsamerica. Loved this book! His previous book also had a large setting in South America, the 6th Extinction. #booktober. In fact I can think of even more of his books set there... What a gold mine! 😉

Grimscythe I almost bought this today, then I discovered it was the seventh in the series. 3y
Texreader @EMJenkinson I think it's number 17 or so. I've read them all out of order. It doesn't matter except for side personal stories. Nothing hinges on them so it is super easy to read in any order. Highly highly recommend this one if you like action adventure, science, history etc. 3y

Finally finished just in time to be my #bestreadofseptember and easily Rollins' best book. An ambiguous ending, unusual for Rollins, makes me anxious for the next book in the Sigma Force series. I mean it. This was one darned good book. #somethingforsept

[DELETED] 2232195534 I like this series! Not caught up on it though. 3y
BookBoggart Is this the first in the series? 3y
Texreader @Mary-JaneGrant No. It's a pretty deep series. Looks like it may be #17! Some are a bit crazier than others but he always separates fact from fiction at the end and the fact is stranger than fiction. 3y

Texreader @kaysreadinglife I read the series all out of order. I have them all so I want to reread them in order someday. But if you want to skip to the best this is it. 3y
Texreader @Mary-JaneGrant If the list in this book is right, this is the first book: 3y
Texreader @Mary-JaneGrant But the books don't necessarily have to be read in order. It helps with some of the personal back stories of the characters but those do not ever comprise the main plot of any of the stories. 3y
BookBoggart Ah, so it's one of those ones you don't HAVE to read in order. 3y
BookBoggart Haha, that went out of order but good to know! I'm quite fascinated by his story lines already! 3y
Texreader @Mary-JaneGrant Nope. Every now and then it was a little frustrating but the main stories are adrenaline-pumping fun so I got over it quickly. 3y
BookBoggart I just Google the hell out of it till I receive answers. Lol 3y

Why do I love James Rollins? His historical mysteries mixed with science and action adventure cannot be beat! Here's one of many illustrations in this book explaining the history, the mystery, and the science. This is one of the several #mapsinbooks in this chapter; this one on page 344! It's been a nonstop and emotional book and I love it. Rollins has added a lovable animal in danger making it hard to put this book down. #somethingforsept

I really enjoyed this one. It was a bit slower for me, I think partially because I was unfamiliar with the sigma force characters and had to get to know them. I loved the mix of archeology, biology and genetics with action.

See that quote on the front? It'd better be true! I've had so many blah books in a row I don't know the last time I felt compelled to read (ok...I do remember: my CJ Sansom books, but I read them all). I've been hanging out in Litsy to avoid reading. So this one is next up! May I have much better luck...

Shemac77 What type of books do you like? Maybe step out of your normal genre? Or try a palate cleanser? Something to keep you engaged but nothing too deep; almost a control-alt-delete? 3y
kellib If you enjoyed Unbroken, try Seabiscuit also by Laura Hillenbrand. Completely different storyline, obviously, but an excellent read. 3y
LeahBergen I'm with @Shemac77. I find that stepping right out of your usual genre works! Or... have you read 3y
MamaGina I love the Sansom series too and second the Mistress of the Art of Death series. I also have this one on my TBR, I've heard it's very good. 3y
[DELETED] 2232195534 I agree with the others about a change up. For something more current than those suggested, try Peter May's 3y

Does anyone know anything about this book? I got it at Walmart yesterday thought it would be a page turner. Stormy is saying " put the darn phone down and play with me!! " and/or "you post so many blurbs but hardly ever finish the book! Put your phone down!" She's right. I'm going to start actually reading and stop posting blurbs and reading articles everywhere which really drains me then I don't read the actual book. My concentration sucks ??
