What's not to love with a story that begins with a total eclipse--the historic omen of disaster? I enjoyed this story for the breadth of sciences Rollins researched to craft this conflict thrill ride of world-wide proportions. ( )

It was fun and action packed, just what I expect from James Rollins but the ending doesn't work for me.

Not only do they save the world but they manage to turn back time so that all the bad stuff that happened - like a nuclear war, massive earthquakes that cause island chains to disappear. For me it would have made more sense to have them somehow destroy the crystal pillar and then have the incoming nuclear missile hit them, I know all the good guys would have died but it just makes more sense that way. Although I suppose once you've had crystals that can make basalt float, a dog that finds a hidden bomb and the ghosts of an ancient civilization then turning back time is perfectly logical. ( )

The story takes place on the first eclipse of the new century...a day which starts off with promise, but ends in tragedy. Solar flares off the sun spark a series of catastrophic earthquakes along the entire Pacific Rim from America to Japan wreaking the highest toll in devastation in modern history. But in the midst of all this, new wonders are found and they lead to the gateway of even more disaster. Ex Navy SEAL Jack Kirkland is strong-armed into assisting the Navy in an undersea salvage of the recently downed Air Force One when he discovers something amazing on the ocean's floor.

I had enjoyed James Rollins previous book, "Subterranean". I must admit I found this to be another action-packed thriller which entertained me thoroughly. It's a near future almost science fiction tale that somehow comes off as entirely believable while you're reading it. If you like high-paced adventure at its best, this book will not disappoint you.

This is the third James Rollins book I've read. I liked the first a bit more, but this one was still appealing. There was plenty of action, and characters that were interesting, if not necessarily as deeply fleshed out as they could have been. Still, the book fills the niche it was intended to quite well. Action, a hint of romance, events and actions that have global repercussions, and heroism on an epic scale. The ending was wrapped up in a pretty little bow, which was something I honestly didn't expecct, since part of what I found so refreshing in the other Rollins book I read was his willingness to do the precise opposite. Still, while this book did not impress me as much as the other, I will certainly read more of his work. ( )

I really love James Rollin's books. I love how he takes a historical tidbit of information and connects it to a slice of science, mixes it all together with a lot of adventure and a dash of romance and voilà!; I'm ready for an enjoyable read~

I also love how he points out the facts and the fiction at the end of his stories; more than once I have gotten lost on the internet satisfying my curiosity regarding the history/science he calls to attention there.

I think he does a great job with his protagonists, I find most to be really interesting and fleshed out. Sigma Force is a recurring theme in many of his stories and it adds another layer of interest for me, taking the adventure to the next level.

Rollin's novels are every bit as enjoyable to me as a big screen summer blockbuster; think I'll go get some popcorn~ ( )
