The members of Sigma Force reluctantly join forces with their most hated enemy to stop a primordial threat with ties to the American Civil War and the secret work of Alexander Graham Bell.
Off the coast of Brazil, a team of scientists discovers a horror like no other, an island where all life has been eradicated, consumed, and possessed by a species beyond imagination. Before they can report their discovery, a mysterious agency attacks the group, killing them all, save one: an entomologist, an expert on venomous creatures, Professor Ken Matsui. This inexplicable threat traces back to a terrifying secret buried a century ago beneath the National Mall: a cache of bones preserved in amber.

Of all the Rollins’ Sigma Force novels I’ve read so far, I still think his “Bone Labyrinth” is the best, and I find myself constantly comparing his other works to that standard. The Demon Crown is a good read but not great, and the ending seems rushed and a little fake. Also, I had a real problem with this one in believing that former assassin, Seichan (who is also Gray’s love interest) can suddenly turn from being a violent murderer who thrives on danger and killing into a tender loving mother-to-be. With that said, I still enjoyed learning about the real places, historic events and persons and the often fascinating but disturbing facts he weaves into his stories. And I love the way Rollins tells part of the story by going inside the head and body of a wasp, drawing his readers into the imagined world of the insect’s perspective – very cool.

I enjoyed the book, but I had to skip the detailed parts about the wasps because it creeped me out too much.

James why did I expect so much more from you. This is a Hoo-Hum try at best. I imagine this is now going to be a one a year book (?) to satisfy your publisher. So sad, you were good.
