Rollins is an author I follow and collect It might not be great literature but his Sigma Series is great fun and you can learn a few things along the way While these books are thrillers Rollins' Sigma Series employs adventures based on science and the science is not entirely fiction In this book however Rollins has his Sigma team depart on an adventure that is based on history than science and actually seems to trespass into the territory of Rollins' friend and fellow thriller author Steve Berry Berry is another author I follow and collect for the same reasons I collect Rollins Berry's adventures are based on history myth or legend and are uite entertaining The adventure in this book use a great deal of Greek and Roman mythology as well as Homer's Odyssey and a little archeology and geology as it never hurts to learn a little while being thoroughly entertainedThe story involves a secret malevolent religious group called the Apocalypti This group believes that there is an ancient discovery that has been lost in history but has possibly surfaced This discovery may hold the potential of giving this group a weapon to unleash upon the world causing chaos and anarchy which will allow them to rise and take over Not a particularly original thriller motivation especially if you were ever a James Bond fan guilty To find this discovery engages the evil group in a race with the Sigma team to trace the homeward voyage of Homer's Odysseus as this voyage holds the key to the hidden source of this very dangerous discovery Along the way in addition to the history and the science you will be introduced to a little geography and to a few historic sites The book is entertaining educational and just plain fun Enjoy

The Last OdysseyAy researchers stumble on a shocking find a medieval ship buried a half mile below the ice The ship’s hold contains a collection of even older artifacts tools of war dating back to the Bronze Age Inside the captain’s cabin is a magnificent treasure that is as priceless as it is miraculous a clockwork gold map imbedded with an intricate silver astrolabe The mechanism was crafted by a group of Muslim inventors the Banū Mūsā brothers considered by many to be the Da Vincis of the Arab world brilliant scientists who inspired Leonardo’s own workOnce activated the moving map traces the path of Odysseus’s famous ship as it sailed away from Troy But the route detours as the map opens to reveal a fiery river leading to a hidden rea. Bait and SwitchA secret society looking to open the gates of hell and bringing about ArmageddonWait I thought this was about OdysseusDeep breath Out slowMy first Sigma book turned out to be a big disappointmentI was thinking Indiana Jones and Lara Croft team up to search for the fabled City of Troy Atlantis or the ship of Odysseus but i got Apocalypti doomsday cult and Decepticons under a glacier in Greenland Indian Jones had clever witty sharp dialogue and good guys you really cheered for This had none of that The story telling was sub par so a big no
