No Spoilers! I woke up this morning excited to read this. This is the first short story I read with the feel of a novel. Great conflict. Characters the reader can care about. Thrilling plot. James does in 20 pages what most authors can't do in 300. He is at the top of his form. The Skeleton Key is the appetizer whetting your appetite for The Devil Colony, the main entree. Also, the first 70 pages of The Devil Colony are included. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for The Devil Colony. Read The Skeleton Key. You will not be disappointed.

Feel kinda robbed paying $1 for something that should have been free. Precursor to Devil Colony followed a mini Seichan adventure, being my favorite Sigma chararcter, she felt drastically out of character. All I ask is that she not be killed off in the new novel, she is too bad ass! Quick read, interesting but too short.

James Rollins has done it again! I first started reading his work in 2008 when I was in Europe on vacation as a way to pass time on the flight and on the trains. I have been a fan ever since. The Sigma series is a particular favorite of mine and the character of Seichan has always been intriguing to me. She's gone from enemy to a sometimes-friend. She serves herself...always. This story brings to light a few unknowns about Seichan's past along with a new danger. Keeps you turning the pages until you realize it's over with questions still unanswered. This short story precludes the upcoming "Devil's Colony" due out (in America) on 21 June. Just a few short weeks away now. With a sneak peek at the latest installment of the Sigma series, the reader is left waiting with baited breath to see what happens. Here's to hoping the time passes fast. Stay shiny!

A good side adventure story for Seichan that leads into The Devils colony. Note: both should be read before Bloodline.

For anyone who thought the art of Short Stories was being lost! The Skeleton Key will grab you from the first page and not let up until the end! You will be glued to the screen of your nook begging for more when you finish! A must have!!!

This is a very short story <40 pages but is an interesting lead to Rollins next Sigma series book, The Devil Colony. I have just begun the Devil Colony and look forward to where this short story intersects with Sigma and the Devil Colony storyline.

This was a short read but still very good - done in the classic James Rollins style! I couldn't put it down! It is a nice segway between The Doomsday Key and The Devil Colony. A must read for any Sigma fan! I hope that Mr. Rollins puts out more of these short in between stories!

Well I admit it elwas a bit too short although for a short story what do you expect? A full length novel? I highly reccomend this, it is a good read and well worth it.

Great short story that fills in some blanks in the series. Can't wait for his next book!

An interesting look at an interesting character. Am glad to see the development of Seichan. I wish there was more. I can't wait for Devil's colony.

A short story (very short) but enough so to make me look into the Sigma Force Series and put the entire series on my wish list. Action packed, just how I like it! I've quickly become a James Rollins fan.

James Rollins moves our imagination to the dank and moldy depths of the Catacombs in another satisfying addition to the Sigma Force Series. He plays our minds with electronic splendor shocking us into submission as Seichan takes the lead in this too short teaser in preparing us for The Devil Colony arriving around the 21st of June. Merci beaucoup, Mr. James Rollins.

An interesting short story but doesn't compare to Rollins Delta Force novels.
