It’s been a long time since I’ve read Rollins and I haven’t kept up with the Sigma Force series since Black Order, but The Devil Colony sounded too intriguing to resist. The premise involves various components: the founding fathers, Mormonism, the Lewis & Clark expedition, American Indians, and nanotechnology. The connections Rollins makes between all of these things should be taken at face value. He presents American lore as pure entertainment to weave a good conspiracy. The author’s note at the end was helpful in separating fact from fiction and the small grains of truth he does extract from American history are developed into an entertaining novel. This was an altogether fun book that illustrated amazing scenes and sights unique to the U.S. Rollins effectively manipulates aspects of modern technology and a few long standing mysteries to create a fast-paced and engaging adventure.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via the Amazon Vine program.
