In the race to save one of their own, Sigma Force must wrestle with the deepest spiritual mysteries of mankind in this mind-expanding adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author, told with his trademark blend of cutting edge science, historical mystery, and pulse-pounding action. Arriving home on Christmas Eve, Commander Gray Pierce discovers his house ransacked, his pregnant lover missing, and his best friend's wife, Kat, unconscious on the kitchen floor. With no shred of evidence to follow, his one hope to find the woman he loves and his unborn child is Kat, the only witness to what happened. But the injured woman is in a semi-comatose state and cannot speak--until a brilliant neurologist offers a radical approach to "unlock" her mind long enough to ask a few questions. What Pierce learns from Kat sets Sigma Force on a frantic quest for answers that are connected to mysteries reaching back to the Spanish Inquisition and to one of the most reviled and blood-soaked books in human history--a Medieval text known as the Malleus Maleficarum, the Hammer of Witches. What they uncover hidden deep in the past will reveal a frightening truth in the present and a future on the brink of annihilation, and force them to confront the ultimate question: What does it mean to have a soul?… (mere)

Overall I think it was okay to almost boring, but the fate of a Sigma member kept my interest.

Crucible has too many tech jargon for me. I lost interest after two thirds into the book. The story didn't flow because I was stuck with all those tech terms I don't care to understand. Eve's thoughts were sometimes repetitive. I honestly would be happy with reading just the hospital part and the escape. ( )

Another really interesting trip into history science in a roller coaster thriller from James Rollins. It is hard to describe how effortlessly these are intertwined. We start during the Spanish Inquisition end up in interstellar space and along the way meet and work with an Artificial Intelligence that is almost god like in its abilities. Yet they are so flawless integrated into the story line you almost forget how relevant each of these are from a historical and scientific prospective. Personally I believe that this is what makes James Rollins work so plain flat out fun, his ability to make a totally believable scenario out of parts so totally unrelated.

Rollins always gives a great story line that is so well though out that makes it easy to accept the unbelievable and unlikely as the gospel. The quality of the righting is very good, the characters live on the pages and the resolution of the seemingly impossible becomes plausible. There is not much more that can be said about how a true thriller should be written that it is by James Rollins.

While none of this series is absolute spectacular they are all above average and make for great reading. This one is no different and I have to recommend it highly. Thank you James Rollins. ( )

James Rollins brings another scary story to life. He manages to combine reality and fiction to create a story of the dangers of artifical intellegence. He imagines a computer program that is able to take over the world and of course, shows the danger in such power. The original Eve is programmed for good but the program is stolen to be used for evil. Can the good overcome the bad.
Add in a former russian agent wanting to obtain the sphere for her own evil purposes and a Catholic cabal, descendants of the Inquisition who want ot use the program to destroy the world so they can take over.
All of this take place at the same time that part of the team is fighting to save Kat from brain death and others are trying to find a kidnapped Seichan and kat and Monk's girls.
While the danger is very real, there is also some touching scenes of people sacrificing themselves for those they love - including the AI herself.
James Rollins always manages to brinng his stories to life and just when you thought it was over, he goes on to provide a last chaptr to identify fact from fiction. This could be the scariest part of the whole book. ( )

A good book by Rollins but different. He most often tells about a historical mystery, which creates a current crisis. The history here is the Malleus Maleficarum, but no mystery about it. It’s a plot device for a story about artificial intelligence, sci fi that initially slowed me down. But it picked up again & was hard to put down. I think Rollins writes about science that scares him, but AI seems to top his list based on the fact he added an unusual alternative ending. ( )

Decent read, good action. Some things were easy to figure out really early on, but still kept my attention. ( )
