Just finished almost an all-nighter because I simply could not put this book down. Sometimes sleep is over-rated anyway and when you find an amazing, edge of your seat, suspense thriller, you have to finish it.
In Bloodline by James Rollins, you are in for an action-packed roller coaster ride from the beginning. Trying not to give away too much, this novel blends a little DaVinci Code, National Treasure, Indiana Jones, Mission Impossible and a twisted bit of Science Fiction into this one, so if you have an interest in any of those, you will just LOVE this one.
The basis for this novel begins with the Knights Templar and ancient history involving a priceless icon that holds a mysterious and terrifying power that promises to change humankind forever. Here's just a sample of what is going on:
"On February 21, 2011, the cover of Time magazine declared: 2045, The Year Man Becomes Immortal. At face value, that might seem a wild claim, but other scientists have made similar statements.
We are living in an exciting time when advances in medicine, genetics, technology, and a myriad of other disciplines are opening the newest frontier for mankind: eternity.
How will that manifest, what form will it take? Within these pages, you'll discover that answer. The concepts raised in this novel are based on facts, on exhaustive research, going back to studies done by the Soviet scientists during the Cold War. But before you turn to that first page, I must make one correction concerning the startling statements made above. They are, in fact, far too conservative in their estimates.
For not only is immortality within our reach - it is already here." (preface excerpt).
Now with the presidents daughter kidnapped, it's only a matter of time before they discover who she really is, and what she is carrying within her that will make her one of the most valuable people in the entire world. If only SIGMA, a unique special operative groups, can locate her before her secret is uncovered, and she becomes a pawn in a shattering act of terrorism with dark repercussions and one that SIGMA may not even be prepared to deal with.
I received Bloodline by James Rollins compliments of William Morrow, a division of Harper Collins Publishers for my honest review and like I stated earlier, this was one I could not put down. Just when you think the good guys might be gaining an upper hand, a darker force will pull them down once again. A true roller coaster ride of great suspense and literal edge of your seat action. It had me surfing the internet while reading this one to see if the places described really exist and how much of this is really fiction! It's that great! For me, I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and I already have my husbands interest peaked just telling him what this one contains. This is my first James Rollings novel but definitely will not be my last.
