Review of "The Judas Strain" by James Rollins

I'm new to James Rollins work. I was doing a book signing at Waldenbooks last year when the paperback of his release Map of Bones hit the shelves. Intrigued by the title and on the recommendation of one of the employees, I bought it. Hallelujah, I'd found another author I really liked. I hit Amazon to find out what else he'd written and slowly bought every book the man had out.

The Judas Strain is Jame Rollins' latest book. I picked it up as soon as I saw it and couldn't wait to break it open. I kicked back on the couch that night while my husband watched t.v. and turned to the first page. I couldn't put it down.

Rollins has an incredible ability to yank you right into a story and keep you on a wild roller coaster ride page after page. He builds likable and believable characters, horrifyingly possible circumstances and plot twists and turns that keep you gasping.

Take a centuries old plague, throw in Marco Polo, the Vatican, a twisted terrorist organization (really bad people,) heroes with the Sigma Force (that would be the good guys) and James Rollins has another page turner! The man can write!

At the end of this book, on the very last page, Rollins words actually caused me to gasp aloud and race for my computer to see when the next book comes out. Since this book was just released, I am doomed to wait and see if one of my favorite characters survived or died.

It is a definite must buy!

Two thumbs up!

Huh -- what do you a think of this thumbs up? Isn't he cute? With me being a Leo and all, I couldn't resist.

  1. Sounds like a good read, Candace. Thanks for posting. Love that little lion, too :-)

    By the way, you've been tagged this morning on my Moaning Meme blog. Enjoy!

  2. It is a great read. He's really a fantastic writer and his imagination is beyond belief. He's a veterinarian with a fascination for prehistoric animals. I love the way this man's mind thinks.

    Moaning Meme? I'll hit your blog to find the link, I don't know who that is.

  3. That is a very cute lion!

    Is Rollins clean enough for me to review for Families?

  4. He is cute, isn't he. And yes, I believe Rollins is clean enough. But you'll to read and judge for yourself.

  5. Sounds like a great book-now if only I had more time to read!

  6. Reading time is always difficult for parents, especially if they are writers. I wish you the best of luck. Reading is one of those things that feeds my soul.
