An inexplicable explosion rocks the antiquities collection of a London museum and the race begins to determine how it happened, why it happened, and what it means.

Lady Kara Kensington's family paid a high price in money and blood to found the gallery that now lies in ruins. Her search for answers leads Kara and her friend Safia al-Maaz, the gallery's curator, into a world they never dreamed existed. Evidence exposed by the tragedy suggests that Ubar, a lost city buried beneath the Arabian desert, is more than mere legend...and that something astonishing is waiting there.

The two extraordinary women and their guide, Omaha Dunn, are not the only ones being drawn to the desert. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Painter Crowe, a covert government operative and head of an elite counter-espionage team, is hunting down a dangerous turncoat and the trail is pointing him toward Ubar.

What is hidden below the sand is more than a valuable relic of ancient history. It is an ageless power that lives and breathes. Many lives have already been destroyed by ruthless agencies dedicated to guarding its mysteries and harnessing its might. The end may be at hand for Kara, Safia, Crowe, and all of the interlopers who wish to expose its mysteries, as it prepares to unleash the most terrible storm of all...

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Michelle | 2/18/2014

    " Meeehhhh, this isn't my type of book. It's a fluff book, but I already have plenty of favorite fluff authors so I don't need another one. I can see why other people like James Rollins and his books (and I can see my dad liking this book), but I wasn't down with the whole action, running around the world for some mysterious lost treasure city, with a whole cast of adventurous people thing. I only actually liked Painter Crowe, and would have been okay reading other books in the Sigma series if they only followed his story, but I've been told the other books follow different people in the Sigma group. "

    " Hokey but entertaining. Modern Romancing the Stone. I am committed to reading the series for whatever reason. "

    " Not nearly as ingenious as The Last Oracle but still an easy, entertaining read. "
