Book Review and Giveaway: The Eye of God by James Rollins

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this book, free of charge, from William Morrow, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it

In The Eye of God, a Sigma Force novel, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins delivers an apocalyptic vision of a future predicted by the distant past.
In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy—and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin.
At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.
Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force set out to discover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery going back to the birth of Christianity, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity.


Rollins gives us another roller coaster read that is so well researched, you may find yourself scrambling to check out theories on the internet, after you finish the book! Rollins understands this need, so he helpfully gives you a nice 11 page Fact or Fiction follow up section! This is a LONG book at 520 pages in paperback, so it will take you a few readings to get through, but it does read very quickly. Rollins says the book is all about magic, mayhem and monsters, and that is pretty much the synopsis in 3 words! Modern science can be all about magic, but frequently mayhem ensues what is supposed to be helpful technology turns into a monster used for ill. Rollins takes this idea, adds myth and history and comes up with a wonderful thriller roller coaster of a read.
