In a masterful epic of timeless mystery and ripped-from-the-headlines scientific intrigue, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins takes mankind to its endpoint, to a fate written in rock and ice in an event known as The Sixth Extinction. A remote military research station broadcasts a frantic distress call that ends with a chilling message: Kill us all. When soldiers arrive to investigate, they discover everyone in the lab is dead'not just the scientists, but every living thing for fifty square miles is annihilated: every animal, plant, and insect, even bacteria. The land is completely sterile'and the blight is spreading. To prevent the inevitable, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma must decipher a threat that rises out of the distant past, a time when Antarctica was green and Earth's life balanced on a knife edge. Following clues from an ancient map rescued from the lost Library of Alexandria, Sigma will make a shocking discovery involving a prehistoric continent, and 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 yet: stopping the coming extinction of mankind. But is it already too late'

I picked this book up in Chicago before flying to Texas, and by the time I landed in Houston I couldn't wait to start reading again. Albeit out of order, this was the first of the Sigma Force novels that I read and speaks to Rollins' ability to write a story that ties seamlessly into previous installments, while still making it possible to thoroughly enjoy the book without having ever read any others.

The story is great, and if you're a dog-lover, this book may speak to you on another level. Despite other's criticism, I think Rollins does a nice job of entwining animals into the story without making them overly cheesy or irrelevant.

I started this book a little over a month ago and loved it so much I'm already on my 5th book in the series since then and this particular novel was one of my favorite in the Sigma Force series.

Another very good book from James Rollins.Also, he always gives satisfactory explanation about facts and fiction at the end of the book.

Once again, Rollins mixes fact and fiction into another entertaining novel. A little heavy on the science, but otherwise a good read.
