Journal Entry 1 by book-man-8 from Tübingen, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Monday, June 27, 2011
This story starts deep in the Rocky Mountains, with a horrible discovery...
James Rollins is on the prowl again...
I do not want to disclose anything about the storyline - and please, if you read it, don't do it, for the suspense of the coming readers.
Let me just say it has a lot to do with American early history, the early history of the US, Native American people, volcanos - even in Iceland! - and very interesting views into nanotechnology.
It's full of turns and twists, "cliffhangers", making this book non-stoppable to read.

I make a bookRAY with this one. the following bookcrossers read along:

"Icila" from Nantes, Pays de la Loire, France (worldwide)
"bilbi" from Chambéry, Rhône-Alpes, France (worldwide)
"Tinina67" from :Seissan, Midi-Pyrénées, France (worldwide)
"perryfran" from North Ogden, Utah, USA (worldwide)
"carlissa" from Miami, Florida, USA (US pref.)

I was kind of mixed on this one. I have enjoyed most of the previous Sigma novels from Rollins, however, this one just seemed too far-fetched to me. When I first heard about this new Sigma adventure, I was really looking forward to it mainly because of the aspects related to Mormonism (I grew up as a Mormon in Utah) but I don't think Rollins researched this very well - he actually got the name of the Mormon founder wrong a few times, citing John Smith when it should have been Joseph Smith. Then there was the premise in the start of the book about a secret history to the founding of America - I don't think this was ever properly addressed in the novel. Yes, there was all the information about a 14th colony of Native Americans, the gold plates and a possible Caucasian race who came to America from Israel, and the nanotechnology they supposedly used. But to me, this all didn't tie together very well. Then there was the non-stop violence and action - every time the Sigma team was making a discovery, the bad guys (Guild) would be right there! This was a little too much. I did like some of the information about native Americans and the locations of the book including Yellowstone Park which I visited last summer. It is pretty frightening that Yellowstone could erupt sometime soon as a massive volcano and wipe out mankind! But overall, to me this was one of the weakest of Rollins novels and I would only mildly recommend it.

The Devil Colony made it safe and sound to Miami! I read about half the book a couple months ago, but I didn't get to finish it because the library wanted their book back. I'm looking forward to being able to finish reading this book!

just received-looking forward to reading

Journal Entry 18 by angelface46 at Montrose, Colorado USA on Wednesday, January 18, 2012
Intriguing book. Being Mormon myself, the link to the Book of Mormon was fascinating. James really did his research. Found the plot exciting. The characters were well developed. The thought of nanobots is truly horrifying.

Journal Entry 19 by angelface46 at Montrose, Colorado USA on Monday, January 23, 2012
still waiting to hear from easterngirl71. I have now sent to PM and have had no reply yet.

Journal Entry 20 by angelface46 at Montrose, Colorado USA on Monday, April 2, 2012
Never heard back after last PM to easterngirl171. She didn't seem that interested in the last PM. I'm running out of bookshelf space so I'm putting this in bookstogive mystery/thriller VBB. The book needs to go out traveling again.
