'The Hammer Of Witches' By James Rollins Retitled To 'Crucible' -- Plus Take A Peek On The Official Cover

The next Sigma Force novel by James Rollins had a working title of The Hammer of Witches. Now it was revealed that this same 14th book in this series is officially called Crucible, a much shorter yet still catchy title.

Since I preordered the book over Amazon a couple of months ago the thumbnail was always that of a headshot of the author. Now I am glad to share with you that the official cover has been revealed and you can see it below.

Check out the coiver of Crucible by James Rollins.

Crucible by James Rollins


In the race to save one of their own, Sigma Force must wrestle with the deepest spiritual mysteries of mankind in this mind-expanding adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author, told with his trademark blend of cutting edge science, historical mystery, and pulse-pounding action.

Arriving home on Christmas Eve, Commander Gray Pierce discovers his house ransacked, his pregnant lover missing, and his best friend’s wife, Kat, unconscious on the kitchen floor. With no shred of evidence to follow, his one hope to find the woman he loves and his unborn child is Kat, the only witness to what happened. But the injured woman is in a semi-comatose state and cannot speak—until a brilliant neurologist offers a radical approach to "unlock" her mind long enough to ask a few questions.

What Pierce learns from Kat sets Sigma Force on a frantic quest for answers that are connected to mysteries reaching back to the Spanish Inquisition and to one of the most reviled and blood-soaked books in human history—a Medieval text known as the Malleus Maleficarum, the Hammer of Witches. What they uncover hidden deep in the past will reveal a frightening truth in the present and a future on the brink of annihilation, and force them to confront the ultimate question: What does it mean to have a soul?

Crucible by James Rollins will be release on January 8, 2019.
