OrangeReviewStarSigma Force (Bloodline) learns that the end of the world prophesied centuries ago will come to pass in four days after a satellite crashes to Earth. The video feed breaks apart but not before showing the entire Eastern seaboard in ruins. A man working at the Vatican receives a package containing a book bound in human skin and a skull with ancient Aramaic writing on it. DNA tests on the book and skull reveal that both are from Genghis Khan, the long-dead Mongolian king whose burial site is rumored to have both treasures beyond imagining, and a curse that will devastate the world if the tomb is opened. Sigma Force must not only split up but also race to save humanity.
VERDICT Rollins has done it again. Real history and science play a key role in all of the action, which never wanes. Amid all of the chaos are some terrific characters who get a chance to shine. Definitely keep an eye out for this one. [See Prepub Alert, 1/14/13.]
