The Countdown Begins For Bloodline Release
Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Fantastic news: the countdown has begun for the release of my latest novel, Bloodline. In exactly one month, on June 26th, Bloodline will be in bookstores and online across the United States.
In Bloodline you will find the Sigma Force team—an elite and covert arm of the Department of Defense’s DARPA unit— involved in a genetic mystery with ties to both an ancient history and modern-day government.
In a thrilling masterwork that will make you rethink your perceptions of life and death, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins takes you to the edge of medicine, genetics, and technology, revealing the next evolutionary leap forward: immortality.
Galilee, 1025. Infiltrating an ancient citadel, a Templar knight uncovers a holy treasure long hidden within the fortress's labyrinth: the Bachal Isu -- the staff of Jesus Christ -- a priceless icon that holds a mysterious and terrifying power that promises to change humankind forever.
A millennium later, Somali pirates hijack a yacht off the coast of the Horn of Africa, kidnapping a young pregnant American woman. Commander Gray Pierce is enlisted for a covert rescue mission into the African jungle. The woman is no rich tourist: she's Amanda Gant-Bennett, daughter of the U.S. president.
Suspicious that the kidnapping masks a far more nefarious plot, Gray must confront a shadowy cabal which has been manipulating events throughout history...and now challenges the current presidency.
For this unique mission, SIGMA is aided by a pair of special operatives with unique talents: former Army Ranger Captain Tucker Wayne and his military war dog, Kane. But what should be a straightforward rescue turns into a fiery ambush and a deadly act of betrayal, as Gray and his team discover that the hostage is a pawn in a shattering act of terrorism with dark repercussions. And the danger is only beginning...
Halfway around the world, a firebombing at a fertility clinic in South Carolina exposes a conspiracy that goes back centuries...a scheme that lies within our genetic code. With time against them, SIGMA must race to save an innocent unborn baby whose very existence raises questions about the nature of humanity, asking:
Could you live forever?
Would you live forever?

If I knew I could live forever, it sure would take the pressure off. But that said, I accomplish a lot more under pressure, so I wouldn't want to know. I guess I would figure it out when I hit 120 and hadn't aged! Sounds like a fantastic book if it raises those questions!

So far I am digging it. This may be the most anxious I've been about one of your books in years. This book is right up the alley with the current ideas behind life extension and immortality. There is a real movement for this in the world today, and what it holds for us all is scary and exciting.

Pulse-pounding, heart-stopping action...and only 6 chapters in! I love it. Your descriptions of the exotic locales and shady characters are amazing. Tucker and Kane are a great addition to the regular Sigma crew, of which, I love every one. This is the entertaining read I've been waiting for...since your last book Devil's Colony. You have knocked another one out of the park and I can't wait to get to the heart of it and see what the Bloodline is really all about. Awesome!

As long as I can look like Angelina Jolie or Reese Witherspoon. If I got all old and wrinkly maybe not. YES I AM VAIN. It's a great question. Sometimes it is the finite nature of time that makes us value relationships and make use of the life we are given. Hard question.

Nope. I think life would get pretty darn boring. I guess that's why I don't get the whole vampire fascination. I agree with Kristen in that a finite amount of time is what makes life so wondrous. Awaken to death and life becomes a heck of a lot more thrilling and meaningful.

If I take your question very seriously James, I feel a sense of claustrophobia. There would be no respite from the sensory overload that immortality would bring - ever. I'd much rather reincarnate with refreshing bouts of oblivion between a variety of interesting lifetimes.

Im not sure i would like to live for ever. I wouldnt like watching those i care for grow old (without me) and die. If there is no death, there would be no room for birth. Look at nature, last years growth has to die to feed the new, altho eternity would bring with it many lessons, and knowledge.....question is what would someone DO with all that knowledge.....

I love the James Rollins books. They are the only series of books I actually read now and find interesting. My favourite ones have to be sandstorm and judas strain. I cant wait to read this one, seems like something that will interest me alot. And I agree, I want to know when it will come out online so I can read it because I dont think it'll be out in the libraries anytime soon. :/
