13 posts | 7 read | 1 reading | 8 to read
In the race to save one of their own, Sigma Force must wrestle with the deepest spiritual mysteries of mankind in this mind-expanding adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author, told with his trademark blend of cutting edge science, historical mystery, and pulse-pounding action. Arriving home on Christmas Eve, Commander Gray Pierce discovers his house ransacked, his pregnant lover missing, and his best friends wife, Kat, unconscious on the kitchen floor. With no shred of evidence to follow, his one hope to find the woman he loves and his unborn child is Kat, the only witness to what happened. But the injured woman is in a semi-comatose state and cannot speakuntil a brilliant neurologist offers a radical approach to "unlock" her mind long enough to ask a few questions. What Pierce learns from Kat sets Sigma Force on a frantic quest for answers that are connected to mysteries reaching back to the Spanish Inquisition and to one of the most reviled and blood-soaked books in human historya Medieval text known as the Malleus Maleficarum, the Hammer of Witches. What they uncover hidden deep in the past will reveal a frightening truth in the present and a future on the brink of annihilation, and force them to confront the ultimate question: What does it mean to have a soul?

My fave writer ever has signed up to write fantasy, not my genre, at all! 😬 But then I read this article and it looks pretty good! I fear it‘s the end of Sigma Force though. He‘s working on the next book called The Last Odyssey. Sounds ominous. Oh please don‘t let it be the end! You can do both!!

I didn‘t know he started out writing fantasy as James Clemens. I guess I‘ll have to dip my toes into fantasy.

amsu311 Noooo...I hope he doesn't end Sigma Force... 3w
LibrarianRyan I didn‘t know he was James Clemens. Cool. 3w
Texreader @amsu311 Hopefully not. I couldn‘t handle it. I do need to reread the series. When I started it I read them out of order. 3w
Texreader @LibrarianRyan Me neither until I read the comments to this article. Off I go to read fantasy. Crazy how love of an author can send you places you didn‘t think you‘d go. 3w

1. The Sigma Force series of which the tagged book is the latest. I‘d finally get to read them in order
2. Socks except during summer in Texas
3. Breckenridge CO. I thought it‘d be the highest point in Norway, in the Jotunheimen mountain area, where it looks like you‘re on top of the world. But it‘s a good 4000 feet lower than Breck
4. Strawberries, bananas, or coconut
5. Not this year

I‘ve given up Stalking Jack the Ripper for now in favor of my favorite author. Seems like brilliant timing as he explores the lingering mystery of the Malleus Maleficarum, the book used in the Middle Ages to identify and prosecute witches, in this latest Sigma Force novel. Hello October!

#friyayintro @howjessreads

1. Sigma Force, the tagged book being the most recent
2. Stranger Things
3. The what now? Do you mean the World Cup cuz I love women‘s ⚽️! (just joking: No)
4. I made turkey & dressing tonight. The family loved the Thanksgiving preview on the 1st night of cold in south Texas (55F)
5. Nope. If anything, he‘s anti-reading unless it‘s a how-to manual (to take care of his bees or his cows, or to build his airplane)

As much as I go on about my new favorite authors, no one beats James Rollins. I‘ve waited almost a year for his new book to come out in paperback (I‘ve given up hardbacks for the most part because of the space they take up), and today I finally got it. Rollins is the perfect mix of historical mystery, scary but true science, and on-the-edge-of-your-seat thriller. He‘s simply the best and I can‘t wait to dig into this one.

Crazeedi I cant say I've read him, but your blurb makes me want to get one to read! 2mo
jenniferw88 @Crazeedi same here! 2mo
Texreader @Crazeedi @jenniferw88 I didn‘t read them in order for years but given the chance I would now. So I do recommend starting with book 1 of the Sigma Force novels. 2mo
Crazeedi @Texreader good, cause I hate reading out of order, it just bugs me! Loo 2mo
Texreader @Crazeedi Some of his books are better than others, but the last ones have been really good. I loved them from the start. He always ends the book with a “what‘s true” in this book. It‘s so cool. 2mo

Oh my gosh @Bookwormjillk my #mysterymessageswap 📦 is amazing. It is so thoughtful and thought out. The hand written recipes are a beautiful touch. I have a backyard now so I am planting flowers and veggies. I am very into aromatherapy as well. And the icing on the cake is the signed James Rollins! Thank you so much!!!
Thank you @TheReadingMermaid for hosting such a fun personal swap. Let's do more of these!

Bookwormjillk I‘m glad you like it! It was so much fun to put together. 6mo

Hmmm. Love the Sigma Force gang - but this was definitely not a 5 star (or even a 4 star) read for me. The ending was my favorite part, but man it seemed like it took forever to get there.

Wow. This isn‘t meant to be horror but it scares me to death. Gray and his Sigma team are after an evil group trying to destroy the world with the ultimate weapon. That weapon is Eve, an AI entity that wasn‘t created for evil but is capable of it in the wrong hands. Another great book by Rollins!! Combination of science, history, and action packed suspense.
