Altar of Eden - James Rollins In my mind this wasn't James Rollins' best work. While the story definitely intrigued me, the science behind it was WAY to complicated and it overwhelms the reader. Rollins' set up for the story was a little flat compared to his other books but his characters were well flushed out and added to the story. Having the main character as a vet, just like Rollins was a nice change as well.
