 The Demon Crown by James Rollins

Synopsis

To save mankind's future, the members of Sigma Force must make a devil's bargain as they join forces with their most hated enemy to stop an ancient threat in this gripping adventure from #1 New York Times bestselling author James Rollins.

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. Before they can report their discovery, a mysterious agency attacks the group, killing them all, save one, an entomologist, an expert on venomous creatures, Professor Ken Matsui from Cornell University.

Strangest of all, this inexplicable threat traces back to a terrifying secret buried a century ago beneath the National Mall: a cache of bones preserved in amber. The artifact was hidden away by a cabal of scientists--led by Alexander Graham Bell--to protect humankind. But they dared not destroy it, for the object also holds an astonishing promise for the future: the very secret of life after death.

Yet, nothing stays buried forever. An ancient horror--dormant in the marrow of those preserved bones--is free once more, nursed and developed into a weapon of incalculable strength and malignancy, ready to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world.

To stop its spread, Commander Grayson Pierce of Sigma Force must survive a direct attack on the island of Maui. To be there first has always been the core mission of Sigma Force, a covert team forged to be America's front line against emerging threats. But this time, even Sigma may not be able to decipher this deadly mystery, one that traces back to the founding of the Smithsonian Institution.

With each new discovery, the menace they hunt is changing, growing, spreading--adapting and surviving every attempt to stop it from reconquering a world it once ruled. And each transformation makes it stronger . . . and smarter.

Running out of time and options, Commander Grayson Pierce will be forced to make an impossible choice. To eradicate this extinction-level threat and expose those involved, he will have to join forces with Sigma's greatest enemy--the newly resurrected Guild--even it if means sacrificing one of his own.

The Demon Crown by James Rollins will be released on December 5, 2017.

Official Cover Of 'Turtles All the Way Down' by John Green Features No Turtles At All

It would seem that August is indeed the cover revelation month. Left and right from every genre new covers are unveiled to boost the anticipation of each of their respective release dates. One of these cover reveals just happened for John Green's Turtles All the Way Down. But if you are hoping to find the titular reptiles in the cover, you'll just be disappointed.

But the thing is you don't have to see those turtles in the cover to appreciate its beauty. In a way they are represented by a spiral. Or maybe  the spiral could be a string of genetic material as well. We'll never know and that is its own beauty as it keeps us guessing until we finally read the book. Or maybe we do, from the blurb comes this line: "ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts...," but we'll see. Thank Rodrigo Corral, the artist and designer behind this cover and who did the cover for The Fault in Our Stars as well!

Time and again I would share about my OCD and OCPD tendencies and this book tackles about the first one. If John Green felt it was deeply personal writing it, then reading would be the same in my case. Read on for the synopsis below to know more about the story.

Check out the official cover of Turtles All the Way Down by John Green.

Synopsis

#1 bestselling author John Green returns with his first new novel since The Fault in Our Stars!

So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and  The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.
