From #1 New York Times Bestselling author James Rollins comes the thrilling new novel: The Demon Crown

Off the coast of Brazil, a team of scientists discovers a horror like no other, an island where all life has been eradicated, consumed, and possessed by a species beyond imagination. To save mankind’s future, the members of Sigma Force must make a devil’s bargain and join forces with their most hated enemy — even it if means sacrificing one of their own.

“Rollins’ latest Sigma Force novel is one of the best in the series… The mix of science, history, and high-concept adventure is always first-rate in a Rollins novel,” says Booklist while Publishers Weekly calls it “bone-chilling.”
