The Devil Colony by James Rollins Book Summary

“Every James Rollins delivers mach-speed mayhem; throat-clutching suspense; high-style adventure; and a terrific story told terrifically. He makes the rest us look bad.”
—Steve Berry, author of The Emperor’s Tomb

“This guy doesn’t write novels—he builds roller coasters.”
—Booklist

New York Times bestselling thrill-master James Rollins is back with The Devil Colony, another electrifying combination of suspense, history, science, action, and ingenious speculation. In The Devil Colony, Sigma Force stalwarts Painter Crowe and Commander Grayson Pierce must investigate a gruesome massacre in the Rocky Mountains and root out a secret cabal that has been manipulating momentous events since the time of the original thirteen colonies. Once again, Rollins delivers a spine-tingler that will leave fans of Michael Crichton, The Da Vinci Code, and Indiana Jones breathless—as he exposes the dark truth behind the founding of America.

The Devil Colony (James Rollins) Book Reviews

Rollin's does it again!Sigma Force once again is challenged by natural and manmade forces, untangling a thousand year-old mystery that fundamentally shaped the founding of the United States of America, and potentially threatening the extinction of the world. By combining Mormon faith, and Native American history with the rediscovery of nanotechnology, Rollins brings the reader into a story that is scarily possible, and because it is possible more believable and thought provoking. This is an action adventure with human face, with the use of the mind being the first weapon before falling back to the more mundane use of explosives and projectile devices. The struggle between good and evil is never straightforward and this is well evidenced in this excellent series. Kodo's Dr. Rollins..Score: 5/5

ExceptionalOne of the more complex and convoluted novels I have read. The story is an artful melding of a solid understanding of science and an interesting twist on Native American lore and The Book of Mormon. I rarely actively recommend books, but I found myself raving about this one to a couple of my patients this week. I really liked the tangential examination of Mormon beliefs. I found it no more unusual than Dan Brown's focus on Catholicism in some of his books..Score: 5/5

The Devil ColonyRather far fetched. A real reach in order to develop action and some sort of suspense. Seems like a filler novel just to keep the a commitment to the publisher or cash flowing. One step above a middle school novel..Score: 2/5

The Devil ColonyOne of the most interesting books I've ever read. The title would have turned me away had I not read more about the book. This book is just full of historical facts without being" preachy" or didactic in any way. It is an adventure of every kind : travel, run for your life action, science, love, revenge, intrigue....this book has it all ! It is one book I am sure that my husband would enjoy as much as I have. It is the most bang, literally and figuratively as I've ever gotten for my buck. Teresa Kerlin.Score: 5/5

ReviewIt was a good book to read. somewhat believable which made it interesting . Would have rated it higher except for the constant slant toward Mormonism. While I don't care about some references to religion in a novel I don't like it to be a constant and recurring theme..Score: 3/5

The Devil ColonyAs always another well done adventure. Fast paced page turner that kept me trying to guess where the adventure would lead, pleased when I was right and awed with pleasure when surprised with a twist. I've always enjoyed American history and Native American history. This story has renewed my interest again. I have surmised history is filled with secrets and revised truths. Historians I'm sure do this only for the good of mankind. Next time I go to Yellowstone or the grand canyon, I'll be looking for the clues from your story. Maybe we could get a tour guide that would give a special James Rollins guide thru Yellowstone or the grand canyon tour now that would be exciting! Best I do this soon before the super volcanic eruption. Until then I'll be waiting for your next exciting story Your faithful reader, WoodU?.Score: 4/5

Great, fun fiction speckled with interesting factThis was my first James Rollins and my first book on IPad. A fast paced read, well suited to the IPad (I googled lots of the more interesting facts mentioned in the book). If you are looking for a fun, immersive action packed read, give this one a try..Score: 4/5

The Devil ColonyFirst 2/3rd really held my attention. Disappointing ending - completely unbelievable..Score: 3/5

Weak military teamSigma Force must be the worst kept secret in the American security forces. The guild knows their every step and is always a step ahead. The only way Sigma succeeds is ludicrous three man attacks against whole hordes of mercenaries. Once you read one book, it is pretty much the same thing over and over again..Score: 2/5

Impressive!My first book by this author. Not only did I find the story line a blend of factual and enlightening material, the story generated an interest in this era of American history that I had not been aware of, let alone appreciate it's historical present day significance. While not a stay up all night read--I put in several hours each day. Although there are numerous well developed characters, one can readily recall their role in the suspenseful events leading to the well developed conclusion. I rarely write reviews. Usually only for those books that "move me" either positively or negatively. (I actually gave Brad Thor's latest... A One Star, actually it should have been a two star... I hit the wrong star. But, based upon this one book... I look forward to reading more of this gifted writer. (No, I am not related to this author, not a groupie and certainly not compensated for this review. I feel the least I can do for all this author has given me by way of this book is to praise and encourage you to buy and support him). Buy it! You will not regret it and I believe the majority of readers will be moved, changed and anxious to share factual information on our history and possible implications for today and the future..Score: 5/5

The Devil ColonyRollins books are always fast paced, have a high body count and mix mysticism with science. This is no different. Unfortunately his approach is now quite formulaic, I found myself skipping over sections because I could predict with unerring accuracy what would happen next. He does unveil more about the origins of the guild which is perhaps the only saving grace of this chapter in the series. I also found his attempts to provide a basis for the Mormon myths a little irritating. DNA evidence has clearly proven them as ridiculous as they sound. Thank goodness for the "Book of Mormon" on Broadway!.Score: 2/5

The Devil ColonyI don't think the title matches the book well, but the book was Rollins' usual complex, exciting, scientifically-based adventure. Well done!.Score: 5/5

The Devil ColonyJames Rollins has done it again! The latest in the Sigma Series is another can't put it down, nonstop action adventure with all the amazing science and history we've come to expect. But I must confess that it surprised even me when I broke out in a wide smile, clutching my iPad in excitement after reading the paragraph introducing our old friend, Painter Crowe. All the wonderful characters are back and the short story, The Skeleton Key is a great prelude to The Devil Colony. i won't give particulars about the story...you owe it to yourself to read them both and discover their secrets for yourself. What I will say is that I hope James Rollins continues to be maniacally prolific. We're all addicted..Score: 5/5

Worth your timeMy brother told me about this book so I decided to look into it. Once I started reading it I just couldn't put it down. It actually drove my wife nuts that I was reading so much. It took me less than a week to finish it and have been telling everyone that I know about it. Personally I would like to see this made into a movie. I would defiantly go and see it. It reminds me a lot of National Treasure. If you are looming for an excellent book to read that will hold you captive this it the one for you..Score: 5/5

A real stretchJumping from group & location may serve the author well, the segue jerked my neck several times and created constant confusion. By the time I grasped where I was, I was thrust into another group and condition. Factual part is truly interesting..Score: 3/5

Fun ReadBeing a science teacher I totally love the whole "scientists with gun" approach to the Sigma series. I appreciate how well Rollins weaves in history and science I to his novels. That being said, The Devil Colony was a fun read but definitely not the best in the Sigma series. Painter Crowe is a really good character but he is definitely not a lead character so it kind of came across as awkward switching from two different story lines. If you're a Sigma fan, it is still a good read but if you are new to this series, definitely start at the beginning or else you probably will not be anxiously waiting for the next one like I am..Score: 3/5
