Could hardly put it down! I was hooked after only a few pages. This book is based on the historical Nazi Bell. I love how Rollins always rolls fact into his suspense! Although the read was wonderful, I did notice Rollins left a few loop holes in his story where things did not add up. It is still definitely worth reading though.

If you enjoy "high octane" novels with unsuspected twists and turns, this thriller is for you. Rollins just keeps getting better and better with each book he writes. BLACK ORDER is a "page-turner" that is certain to keep you reading until the wee hours of the morning. IMHO.

This is the first James Rollins book I've read, and I'm very impressed. I didn't realize it was part of a series either, until I found the rest online. He does an excellent job of developing the characters and not assuming you've read the earlier books in the series. The level of technical detail here and the arguments made are very deep and thought provoking. Rollins drew me in held my attention from beginning to end. I also agree with one of the earlier reviewers - this is perfect for a movie; even Rollins' writing style lends itself very easily to adaptation. I can't wait to read the others in the series!

The next best thing to waking up on a holodeck with Indiana Jones, Jack Ryan, Ian Malcolm and Robert Langdon. You can't help but want to read them all.

Harriet Klausner needs to learn that this is where you give your personal OPINION of a book, NOT an overview of it. I'm really sick of her ruining books for me before I even get a chance to read it!

I was on vacation when I picked this book up. I've been a James Rollins fan for a while, not because his books are necessarily believable, but because they are fun. If you are looking for a summer blockbuster of a book, then this is for you. Honestly I'm surprised none of his books have been considered for a movie. The plots are fantastical, the action scenes are exciting and over the top, the characters are well written. Anyway, I'm off on a tangent. I was on vacation and this was a great vacation read. There were a couple areas that made me think a little, which is rare for this genre, and the story was very interesting. I would definitely recommend this for any fan of Matt Reilly, as his books are similar in style (although I think James Rollins has better plot lines).

In typical Rollins fashon, he dishes up a cliff hanger at the end of each chapter. Strange symbols, power mad scientists, super critters, and people,and the usual desperate race against time to save the good guys and the world. All in all a great, can't put it down weekend read.

Definitely one if the "just one more chapter before i go to bed" books. Highly recommended.

I really like the science behind this novel, but this book needs just a little more excitement, more suspense, less drivel about secret agents in love.

Second book in the Sigma Force series. The Characters are strong and the story is fast paced.

For those of you who love the puzzle-solving historical fiction of Dan Brown as well as the thrilling action of Tom Clancy, this book will satisfy! Rollins completed a massive amount of research in order to entwine historical fact with a compelling and action-packed fictional story. It leaves the reader wondering.. "what if...?" I spent many a groggy morning at work because I didn't want to put the book down at night! Although this can be read as a stand-alone novel, I do recommend reading Map of Bones first, in order to understand some of the references to past events.

I couldn't put it down. This book covered a lot of topics from WWII oocult secrets, quantum theory, technological advances and even the basis of religion. The plot was well thought out and the characters were done very well. If you like history, mystery, suspense and good old fashioned intrigue, you should read this. From Nazi's to the Zulu tribes, MI5 and other shadow groups, this book is a definite page turner. Highly recommended.

I love the Sigma Force Novels! And this one is no different! James Rollins has such a unique way of mixing together fact & fiction that I cannot put a single book down until it is done - and then do a little research afterwards about the facts he has built in. Black Order was an excellent read & I highly recommed this & any of his books to everyone!

The action scenes were great, but some chapters made me feel like i was reading a beginners quantim physics textbook. I didnt like the way he shifted between events either. I liked the characters, and my husband would love this book, but i probably wont buy another.

Definitely not my idea of a good read. The back-history went on and on and on and on. The whole thing was a confusing mess. Between quantum physics, mythical runes, religion, love stories, four countries, four languages and a partridge in a pear tree, I was lost and bored. I had the most fun keeping track of ALL the loopholes. I MADE myself finish this book and it was a total struggle. I would not recomend this book to anyone.

Ok ppl. Harriet klausner has ruined another book by revealing everything. Dont bother buying the books. Just read her plot reveals and you can save money. This woman needs to be taught that a review is whether she liked it or not. Not write a dissertation on each and every point of the book. She disgusts me.

Engrossing with much actual fact in the fictional story. If you like page turning adventure with engaging characters this is for you, Rollins is always a good read and I should know because I have read them all.

It kept you in suspense and with interesting characters. Especially liked the fair & balanced view of creationism vs evolution and intelligent design.

A Copenhagen mystery, past and current day Nazis, Tibetan monks with an unknown deadly aliment and a scientific search which might change humanity...what more could you want. This one has it all.
