knew what was going to happen most of the time and was therefore not inclined to pay very close attention I found my mind wandering a lot and then realizing that I wasn t paying attention and having to reread That s never a good sign I realized something when reading this book, something that should have hit me long before now James Rollins writes awesome female characters And if you read thrillers as much as I do, you know what a rarity that is They re smart and competent, compassionate and driven Yet they re not cookie cutter similar, either Seichan s my favorite, but Jenna s a great

recent developments in genetics research and environmental preservation, plus shadow biomes and XNA an alternate nucleic acid similar to DNA or RNA, but using other elements I always come away from these stories feeling that I ve learned something new, and wanting to doresearch on the subjects involved.And did I mention they re fun The 6th Extinction is book 10 in the Sigma series and you don t need to have read the previous books in the series to enjoy this book Although it wouldn t hurt to read them in the right order Mostly because the series is good and it s interesting to follow the character lives throughout the books.This book starts with the destruction of a remote military research station that not only kills every single scientist in the facility, but also every living thing within fifty square miles Animals, The 6th Extinction is book 10 in the Sigma series and you don t need to have read the previous books in the series to enjoy this book Although it wouldn t hurt to read them in the right order Mostly because the series is good and it s interesting to follow the character lives throughout the books.This book starts with the destruction of a remote military research station that not only kills every single scientist in the facility, but also every living thing within fifty square miles Animals, plants, and yes even bacteria are killed and the infestation is spreading Now, they must find a way to stop it.This book takes us both to the jungles of South America and the icy world of Antarctica as the agents of Sigma has to find a way to stop the spreading that kills everything in its way.The book is split into two parts Commander Gray Pierce and others travelers to Antarctica looking for the answers below the ice and Painter Crowe and his group is going after the scientist that created the scourge and who was kidnapped when the military research station was destroyed I preferred the Antarctic part of the book, it was most interesting with the lost world under the ice and also the one that felt most adventurous Meanwhile, Crowe and his team are trying to find the scientist that was kidnapped by the evil man that wanted to destroy the world that we know The problem for me with the storyline was that It just got to scientific sometimes, too much scientific babble that dragged the story a bit It was fundamentally interesting the idea that something could be so devastation dangerous that it could kill everything alive, but it just sometimes felt like the scientific babble just went on and on That could really be why I just preferred what was going on with Pierce and the others because they had to fight for their lives constantly in Antarctica and the world below was so fantastic and dangerous Yes, there was danger in Brazil, but I just felt less interested in the storyline I liked the book, I think it is well written and fascinating to read Yes, sometimes the science went above my head, but that only makes meimpressed because it does make the book feel very well researched Although it did now and then go on a bit too long for my taste But still, in essence, a really good book 3.5 stars In this 10th book in the Sigma Force series two civilian scientists one in California and one in Brazil are trying to develop outside the box solutions to counteract humankind s destruction of the Earth Unfortunately the cures are worse than the disease The book can be read as a standalone.FYI Sigma Force is a secret division of the U.S Department of Defense, composed of former Special Forces officers who ve been trained in various scientific disciplines The story In a 3.5 stars In this 10th book in the Sigma Force series two civilian scientists one in California and one in Brazil are trying to develop outside the box solutions to counteract humankind s destruction of the Earth Unfortunately the cures are worse than the disease The book can be read as a standalone.FYI Sigma Force is a secret division of the U.S Department of Defense, composed of former Special Forces officers who ve been trained in various scientific disciplines The story In a covert underground laboratory in northern California, Dr Kendall Hess has developed man made indestructible viral shells, and loaded them with a substance that will kill ANYTHING and EVERYTHING it contacts When the virus gets loose and safeguards in the lab fail a desperate distress call goes out The SOS ends with the plea Kill us Kill us all California State Park Ranger Jenna Beck and her partner a Siberian Husky named Nikko arrive at the scene to see the lab explode and Hess get abducted by well trained commandos The commandos try to kill Jenna because she witnessed the kidnapping , but the Ranger is very resourceful and holds her own until Sigma Force personnel arrive.Everyone in the California lab aside from Hess is dead and the virus contaminated smoke emanating from the burning facility is killing everything it touches bacteria, fungi, insects, plants, animals, people, etc Moreover, the destruction is spreading and seems unstoppable Skip ahead a short while and two victims of the virus the dog Nikko and a Sigma Force operative are quarantined and fighting for their lives.In addition, the discovery of old maps and other clues result in two Sigma Force units being dispatched one team led by Gray Pierce goes to a laboratory in the Antarctic Another squad led by Painter Crowe travels to the mountains of Brazil Both teams are attacked at every turn, and the book is chock full of action scenes filled with death and destruction At the Antarctic facility, Sigma Force learns about a habitat beneath the Antarctic ice, populated by ancient exotic creatures living in lakes and caverns These organisms, which are unknown to the outside world, have an unusual type of genetic material called XNA for xenonucleic acid XNA contains a different sugar component than RNA which contains ribose or DNA which contains deoxyribose It turns out that Hess s California lab used XNA to create the deadly substance in the undestroyable viral shells Hess s ultimate aim was to fortify the DNA and RNA of normal plants and animals so they could withstand global warming, habitat destruction, and other harmful changes to the planet However the discoveries in Antarctica don t provide a solution to the spreading calamity in California.In Brazil, Sigma Force finds that supposedly dead scientist Dr Elwes Cutter an evil genius has used XNA to bioengineer a tropical ecosystem filled with deadly plants and animals I have to admire the author s imagination in creating all the unusual creatures in this novel In addition, Cutter had Hess abducted, so he could get the blueprints for the invincible viral shells Cutter has various nefarious schemes in mind to save the Earth which I can t reveal because of spoilers.Meanwhile, back in California a government scientist, Dr Raymond Lindahl, is trying to stop the virus before it spreads to the whole region, country, and perhaps world Lindahl is planning to use the nuclear option if all else fails In addition, Lindahl wants to use poor Nikko as a test subject to study the effects of the virus on his body Other Sigma Force personnel strongly object to these plans for Nikko, but the scientist is very insistent This leads to some drastic actions..With all this going on, the Sigma Force teams face a race against time at every turn The units in the Antarctic and Brazil are fighting to survive attacks by commandos AND deadly creatures the Brazil team is trying to capture Cutter before he carries out his diabolical plans and all of Sigma Force is desperate to stop the virus before Lindahl blows up California Can they do it You ll have to read the book to find out.Rollins includes a lot of real science in the book including life in extreme environments techniques for manipulating genetic material methods for creating new species attempts to resurrect extinct species andI enjoyed the novel but found that the escapades and organisms in the two locations, Antarctica and Brazil, got confused in my mind.and I sometimes had stop and think where I was in the book Still, it s a good story that would appeal to fans of science filled, action packed stories..and I d recommend the book to those readers If you re a long time fan of the series you should know that all the popular Sigma Force characters are on hand for the proceedings and there are some changes in the private lives of a couple can you say wedding You can follow my reviews at
