Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author James Rollins, the latest riveting, deeply imaginative thriller in the Sigma Force series, told with his trademark blend of cutting-edge science, historical mystery, and pulse-pounding action.

It begins in Africa . . .

A United Nations relief team in a small village in the Congo makes an alarming discovery. An unknown force is leveling the evolutionary playing field. Men, women, and children have been reduced to a dull, catatonic state. The environment surrounding them—plants and animals—has grown more cunning and predatory, evolving at an exponential pace. The insidious phenomenon is spreading from a cursed site in the jungle — known to locals as the Kingdom of Bones —and sweeping across Africa, threatening the rest of the world.

What has made the biosphere run amok? Is it a natural event? Or more terrifyingly, did someone engineer it?

Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force are prepared for the extraordinary and have kept the world safe, vigilance for which they have paid a tragic personal price. Yet, even these brilliant and seasoned scientific warriors do not understand what is behind this frightening development—or know how to stop it. As they race to find answers, the members of Sigma quickly realize they have become the prey.

To head off global catastrophe, Sigma Force must risk their lives to uncover the shattering secret at the heart of the African continent—a truth that will illuminate who we are as a species and where we may be headed . . . sooner than we know.

Mother Nature—red in tooth and claw—is turning against humankind, propelling the entire world into the Kingdom of Bones.

        A new disease is ravaging both people and wildlife in Africa. When a United Nations relief team discovers the disease turning both flora and fauna into life-threatening dangers, the Sigma team is alerted and heads into the jungle to locate the source, alleged to be the legendary Kingdom of Bones. Their goal is to stop the epidemic. The Kingdom of Bones is deep inside the jungle and avoided by locals, but the team perseveres to explore the site and search for a cure to this new, strange ailment. With plants, animals, and other humans all aligned against the group, they manage to infiltrate some of the deepest, darkest corners of the Congo, all the while under attack on several fronts, to look for answers. With the voice of narrator Christian Baskous, the characters come to life. VERDICT Readers who enjoy Michael Crichton's books and fans of Rollins's (The Last Odyssey) previous work will want to tackle this new entry in the "Sigma Force" series, which can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.--Cheryl Youse

        Starred review from February 7, 2022
        Bestseller Rollins’s exhilarating 16th Sigma Force novel (after 2020’s The Last Odyssey) takes a Sigma Force team, including former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne, to a UN refugee camp in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which has been overwhelmed by a simultaneous invasion of unusually violent insects and animals and an outbreak of a mysterious and devastating sickness. Their mission, which is to identify and combat what officials fear could be another worldwide pandemic, becomes a literal rescue as the camp is attacked by corrupt Congolese forces at the behest of an industrial-mining billionaire with a sinister agenda. Wayne and the other Sigma team members must travel deep into the primeval jungle in search of the Kingdom of Bones, a fabled ancient Shangri-La that might provide the cure to the disease, if they can survive the deadly mutating flora and fauna. Rollins, a former veterinarian, excels in description of animal taxonomy, both real and of his own invention. Fans of Clive Cussler and Michael Crichton won’t want to miss this one. Agents: Russ Galen, Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary Agency; and Danny Baror, Baror International.
