Without giving anything away, this book likely has something for everyone who enjoys the action/adventure genre. Natural disasters, world chaos, a missing Air Force One and the president, ancient civilizations, romance, name it and you'll find it in this novel - even including a Canadian! This third novel by Rollins has more refined character development than his previous novels while at the same time, keeping the mystery and the adventure on an even keel. If you enjoyed his previous novels, you won't be disappointed with this one. In my opinion, Rollins easily ranks up there with the likes of Preston and Childs, DuBrul and other action/adventure writers. In fact, so far, he's demonstrating consistancy in his writing unlike some of the other writers who seem to lose momentum after their first success and is in fact in the process of surpassing some of the other household name action/adventure authors. Anxiously awaiting the next novel! Monsieur Rollins, you make reading a pleasure as always... ;-)

The thing that I really like about James Rollins is the really interesting science that is threaded throughout his books. This book is no exception. The discussion and fictional application of dark matter is really interesting. Also, as always, there is a decent amount of action at various times throughout the book. However, the plot of this book is SLOW and you will be 150 pages into it before it really gets interesting. Also, there are a couple of subplots that seem to have been included for no other purpose than filling space.

    Hard Read

    I had a hard time getting into this book. For one thing the characters were just not that interesting. Then there is no end to the constant catastrophes that appear starting with chapter one and never stopping. There are so many things going on and I don't think the author brings them all together well in the end. In fact the ending was just plain UNBELIEVABLE.
