Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: Christian Baskous

Duration: 14 hours 46 minutes

Summary:

The crash of a U.S. military research satellite in the remote wilds of Mongolia triggers an explosive search for the valuable cargo it holds: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy, the energy associated with the birth of our universe. But the last blurry image from the falling satellite captures a chilling sight: a frightening look into the future, a view of a smoldering eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin.
At the Vatican, a mysterious package arrives for the head of Pontifical ancient studies, sent by a colleague who vanished a decade earlier. It contains two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA testing reveals both are from Genghis Khan—the long-dead Mongol king whose undiscovered tomb is rumored to hold the vast treasures and knowledge of a lost ancient empire.
Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma—joined by a pair of Vatican historians—race to uncover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery bound in the roots of Christianity's origins, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity.

    I love the Sigma Force novels however, I was so distracted by this narrator, Christian Baskous, that I found myself bored with the story. I keep remembering the voices of the characters as Peter J. Fernandez portrays them. These characters were all strangers to me. I could not tell who was speaking unless he said the characters name. I do so hope that future novels will be told by Mr. Fernandez!!!

  • Archie Prince

    I loved the book but wasn't a fan of the Narration. The accents where off putting. That he attempted, and just the natural rhythm of his voice was not fitting for this story. I probably will not purchase another Sigma Audio book if Christian Baskous is the narrator

  • Richard Boardman

    The book itself is good, but Peter J Fernandez is the voice of sigma force. I really had a hard time following along with this narrator.

  • Dalida Jongsma

    Pretty decent story, although it was a bit too much torture at times for me.

  • Aaron Hamm

    Awesome as expected from James Rollins. Also Christian Baskous was absolutely amazing in his reading. He reads with such emotion.
