Publisher Description

In this heart-stopping novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author James Rollins, an elite team of ex-Special Forces soldiers turned scientific specialists must uncover a secret society and the treasure that could destroy the world.

When a group of parishioners are burned to death in a German cathedral, the U.S. sends in the Sigma force. The tragedy is more than a case of arson; someone has stolen the priceless treasure stored in the cathedral’s golden reliquary: the bones of the Biblical Magi, the legendary Three Kings.

Commander Logan Pierce, new to Sigma, will lead a team on the hunt for the Royal Dragon Court, a clandestine aristocratic fraternity of alchemists dating back to the Middle Ages, who seek to establish a New World Order using the mystical bones. The Sigma team will follow a labyrinth of clues leading from Europe’s gothic cathedrals, through the remnants of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, to a mystical place where science and religion will unite to unleash a threat not seen since the beginning of time itself.

Jaycray2014 ,

Great book!

For being being the second book in the series this book does a great job of not only putting concepts from the first book (Sandstorm) in the book but also keeping you just as enveloped as it as well. Slow start but a beautiful finish to tie it all together at the end.

Fantastic read

I loved this book so much that i bought every James Rollins book i could get my hand on. I love how he combines history and current facts into on great tale!

An amazing thriller of historic proportions

This thriller has more twists and turns than the ancient stories that are revealed. At times difficult to follow, as there are plots within plots and the history and detail can sometimes obfuscate the thread of the story.

However, high action, extensive international travel and clever use of history and alchemy keeps you guessing to the end.

Written for a movie It could be re-titled "Jack Ryan in the alternative The Da Vinci Code".
