HEY ALL MY JAMES ROLLINS FANS! I bring you the next James Rollins review, Devils Colony. OK, before I even get into the review I need to let you guys know that I recently received ALL of the SIGMA books! Well, except for the new one… Bangin’ Mother’s day HUH!!??  Ok, enough about me and mines: let’s get back to the book!  I have to admit that I feel an affinity to this book because my fiancé is a full-blooded Cherokee Indian. NO, NO, I am NOT about to compare this book to the Cherokee ways you sillies.  This book is NOT about the Cherokee, I have talked to Jesse, my fiancé, about various parts of this book. It is based on the Ute Indians, and while talking to Jesse, I got a lot of insight into the various aspects of the Indian nation at that time. He did me the favor of pulling on his memories of what his mother and uncles have told him about those times as well.

On a different note, I have to say that I LOVE that James includes some little known history into his books. Not having known much about Thomas Jefferson, I find it exhilarating that he cared so much about the Indian nation that he was an avid collector of Indian artifacts.  Another thing about Jefferson that many of you may not be aware of is the fact that he was VERY into creating codes and much of his correspondence to friends was done through codes he himself created.

James Rollins does an excellent job with his research into the Inca tribe and his research on Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. Yea, I didn’t mention that Franklin was involved in this did I!??  See how I keep you guys guessing!?? Thomas Jefferson was very serious about his collection of Indian artifacts. It was widely believed that Jefferson had a huge collection of Indian artifacts but after his death, a majority of them disappeared from his collection. What happened to his collection?  That is STILL a mystery that has yet to been solved! Anyone out there know the ANSWER??

I am trying to figure out how to explain to you guys what is going on in this book! I don’t wanna give too much of it away as you guys well know, cause what’s my fav saying!!???  READ THE BOOK!!! That being said, Devils colony is about, what happens when a lost Indian tribe is discovered.  It seems on first glance that they are a regular Indian tribe but it is soon discovered that they are not.

Without going into too much more detail, this book takes us on a free for all ride from scientific to old school Indian stuff.  Our heroine has to figure out which side of the fence she should be on… Our MANY heroes ride rampant trying to uncover and discover what the TRUE story is. In the end they have to race against the clock to do what!!?? SAVE the world!! Save the world HOW you ask?  Ummm READ THE BOOK! Seriously, you guys should know me by now!

As for our Antagonist… this is a guy that makes you want to kill him on site!  Ya know what tho!?? Without HIM our story wouldn’t unravel in the manner that it did… and to a certain degree, he is kinda likeable! He is that itchy spot in the middle of your back that you would KILL to get rid of, but once it’s gone…  AWW, you MISS it! Anyways, James got me again! I SWEAR one of these days I am gonna get him BACK!! Sooner or later I will figure out what’s going on BEFORE he ends up pointing the obvious out to me!!!! YUP 5 stars for this one!

On another note, I have decided to dedicate our blog at tasha-turner.com to Happy Mondays! On Mondays is when I will be posting what I may start calling the “Rollins reviews”!!  HA! That kinda sounds like a news special doesn’t it? What do you guys think? Good idea? Bad idea? Leave a comment and feel free to shoot me a howdy sometimes. Like me or love me…FB me and James, Twitter me and James lol.  Keyeta! Jesse says that’s Cherokee for goodbye!
