Book Summary

A remote military research station sends out a frantic distress call, ending with a chilling final command: Kill us all! Personnel from the neighboring base rush in to discover everyone already dead-and not just the scientists, but every living thing for fifty square miles is annihilated: every animal, plant, and insect, even bacteria.

The land is entirely sterile-and the blight is spreading.

To halt the inevitable, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma must unravel a threat that rises out of the distant past, to a time when Antarctica was green and all life on Earth balanced upon the blade of a knife. Following clues from an ancient map rescued from the lost Library of Alexandria, Sigma will discover the truth about an ancient continent, about a new form of death buried under miles of ice.

From millennia-old secrets out of the frozen past to mysteries buried deep in the darkest jungles of today, Sigma will face its greatest challenge to date: stopping the coming extinction of mankind.

But is it already too late?

Book Opinions

  • Another Awesome Adventure

    By Ohyeahfun
    Another blockbuster from James Rollins. This edition of the Sigma series takes us from Yellowstone to Antarctica as they try to stop another earth extinction event. Once again great writing with an all star cast leads us on a non stop action adventure. Highly recommend you read this series.

  • Meh

    By jdgky
    I have been reading through the series of late. One question I have been asking is this; if Sigma Force is so secret and elite why is it that every bad guy knows about them and is always a step ahead. Their like the Keystone Cops until the very ending when they save the day. I know this series is not fine literature, but geez, do they have to be so predictable? Plus, after checking on some of his sources that he recommends, they are conspiracy laden tomes that can't be taken seriously. So his "facts" sometimes come from doubtful sources.
  • Great!

    Another great book in this series! I can't wait to start the next book!
  • Disappointed

    By Navjyo
    Thought it starts well, half way through it takes the routine path & the ending seems so obvious.
  • The 6th Extinction

    By SAppelquist
    The Scientists are only slightly less beautiful than the Special Forces agents, and all are brilliant. Good wins out.
  • The 6th Extinction

    By Ddsssaop
    Yet another book that goes down to the last few seconds to save the world from disaster. Tedious, ponderous and completely unnecessary. Couple that with a plot hopelessly complicated and you have a less than fulfilling read.
  • I do love Sigma!

    By SciTeach3
    Being both a science teacher and an action reading enthusiast, I have always jumped at every new Sigma series novel that comes out. This novel was pretty good but not necessarily the best. I do miss the prolonged battle scenes of past books but did love the plot throw-back to Subterranean. I do hope James you are reading this and if so, I implore you, please bring back the original buddy team of Gray and Monk. That dynamic was so great and I have no idea why you have chosen to shelve Monk in the last couple of novels. Kowalski is entertaining but comes across more like Gray's "pet" commando - he is definitely no Monk.
  • Aaaagh! Disney stole James Rollins's brain...

    By vertskis
    ...or at least his laptop. There's some fun science play here, but this is by far the weakest link in the Sigma chain. No Seichan. No Guild-like enemy (hell, the villain in this one even has a moral comeuppance). Not to mention a fairytale wedding...gross. All is not lost, Rollins does hint that there is more of the Sigma formula to come and I'm hooked. Let's just hope there's no more Once upon a time...and they all lived happily ever after.
