I don't knowThe story and the facts supporting it are promising intriguing It involves anti matter yes the same stuff in Angels Demons the lost city of Ubar the ueen of Sheba and the Garden of Eden the potential for world domination based on some long buried secret A good formula for a scientific historical thriller Right? WrongTo top it off Rollins attempts to add a love story you could call it a love triangle to this train wreck of a novel which only further bogs down the storySome of the characters described in full as if they will be a major player exist for no apparent reason other than to add a line of dialogue and the dialogue is bad throughout One character who appears in the first chapter is described with enough detail that you can assume he will be a key character never returns Why? It's a muddled messThe main characters are unemotional unresponsive almost lifeless considering that they are facing life and death situationsThe dialogue is ridiculous calm conversations about scientific realities falsehoods in the midst of a gunfight taking place under the so called sand storm of the century; attempted witty banter between two characters that have not had an ounce of chemistry; run on endless dialogue about scientific facts without a pause or interruptionI was thoroughly disappointed in this book I won't be reading any of Rollins' earlier works I may attempt the follow up to Map of Bones if one is released Maybe that was the turning point for Rollins the place where he found his writing niche I'm not sure if I will but I mightI am sure that there are many people who truly enjoyed this novel but I found it to be trite cliche a drudgery I hope anyone who buys this book enjoys it I just want to let you know that you may want to think twice before believing the great reviewsFor the sake of relativity I will provide a list of some of my favorite books in this genre so you can decide whether or not my opinion matters to you The Last Templar by Khoury The Third Secret The Romanov Prophecy by Berry Obsessed by Dekker Brethren by Young Labyrinth by Mosse and The First Horseman The Genesis Code by Case

An inexplicable explosion rocks the antiuities collection of a London museum setting off alarms in clandestine organizations around the world And now the search for answers is leading Lady Kara Kensington; her friend Safia al Maaz the gallery's brilliant and be Well if you're going to have insomnia this is one heck of a book to have handy It took me a long time to finish this book because I had so many irons in the fire towards the end of last year I am so glad that I did pick it up now because it turned out to be a very rewarding readJust a few of Danielle's Late Night Review Observations1 James Rollins writes detail oriented science heavy actionadventure It took me a bit to get used to his writing style but I have to say it really worked for me Since I am a self admitted science nerd I found the scientific aspects uite interesting and it usually didn't go too far over my head I loved Coral Novak's character A tough as nails special forces operative who is also a serious brainiac Which leads me to my next point2 I think Mr Rollins really loves and respects women Painter Crowe and Omaha Dunn are strong pivotal characters in this novel but the women really carry the show This novel is underscored and wrapped in the depths and characterization of women from the shy introverted scholarly tortured Safia to her outgoing adoptive sister Lady Kara who is eually tortured to the seriously twisted villain character a major spoiler if you haven't read the book and then there are the mysterious women of the Ubar descent who trace their origins back to the ueen of Sheba Although I thought that Lady Kara could have been fleshed out I think overall Rollins did a great job of rounding out this book with incredible women3Painter Crowe and Omaha Dunn surprise you because they are a lot emotional than I would expect tough guy action heroes to be Painter actually gets choked up a few times It was sexy And I loved the image of him running around in his boxers I'm a bit boy crazy I freely admit I like a man who can be free with his emotions Omaha is in the Indiana Jones vein but with a soft hearted depth that Jones doesn't uite show with women; he's never fallen out of love with Safia even with the bad mistakes he made That's another plus with this novel that Rollins is unafraid to stray from gender conventions and dare I say stereotypes4Going back to point 1 forgive me it's almost four am and my brain is muzzy I like that Rollins does his research to write a story that is about the possible and the plausible I loved the fact that he built this imaginative sciencefantastical adventure on a foundation of real life facts 5The action in this book is hot and heavy When I said it was detailed in the science facts don't let that scare you away Mr Rollins doesn't let his readers down when it comes to things blowing up characters in serious jeopardy and yes violent gruesome deaths Nothing gratuitous mind you If you like all the hardware and high tech action meeting the ancient treasure hunting motif you'll be a happy camper with this novelWrapping my wobbly thoughts together I thought this would just be a four star novel because of the fact it took a while to get into the book However I have talked myself into a higher rating during this review actually as I read the incredible imagery in this book at its climax I was mentally reading with my mouth wide open A guy who can write with this kind of depth and imagination is a man I want to read of I have to give this book 45 stars at the minimumHighly recommended

SandstormDeath defying trek deep into the savage heart of the Arabian Peninsula pale before the nightmare waiting to be unearthed at journey's end an ageless and awesome power that could create a utopia or destroy everything humankind has built over countless millennia This is one of those stories I felt that I should’ve liked but didn’t The plot needed some editing – it reached the part I felt should’ve been the exciting climax and then kept going building to the level of absurdity – and then the characters killed itI liked Safia for all of about one page after she was introduced after which my opinion of her started to wane After a chapter of her I was sincerely hoping she’d get killed off so I was very disappointed to learn that not only would she not get killed off but that she was crucial to the story All of the characters make observations about how “strong” Safia is which is interesting since I never saw Safia being strong In fact if it wasn’t for the other characters beating me over the head with how strong and admirable Safia was I would’ve pegged her as being kinda pathetic seeing as how she kept having panic attacks and angsting over her not so terrible terrible past UghI kinda liked Painter Crowe up until his infatuation with Safia at which point I started to lose some respect for him Then later in the book there was some horrible line about how Safia’s wonderful womanly vulnerability called out the man in him and I very nearly stopped reading
