book Î The Last Odyssey È James Rollins

Hers stumble on a shocking find a medieval ship buried a half mile below the ice The ship’s hold contains a collection of even older artifacts tools of war dating back to the Bronze Age Inside the captain’s cabin is a magnificent treasure that is as priceless as it is miraculous a clockwork gold map imbedded with an intricate silver astrolabe The mechanism was crafted by a group of Muslim inventors the Banū Mūsā brothers considered by many to be the Da Vincis of the Arab world brilliant scientists who inspired Leonardo’s own workOnce activated the moving map traces the path of Odysseus’s famous ship as it sailed away from Troy But the route detours as the map opens to reveal a fiery river leading to a hidden realm u Okay for the first time in several recent years a Sigma Force plot is finally sounding really interesting to me without being that same old same old meh I mean beginning with the mere mention of Troy then typical James Rollins ian historical mysteries and conspiracies based on freaking The Illiad and The Odyssey? Odysseus’ ship and his mythical epic voyage across the world?? Tartarus??? HOLY SHITPS I think the title could've been better The Last Odyssey is a bit too derivative as The Last Oracle though I guess I understand the straight forward reason behind it
