In Island of Glass by Nora Roberts, archaeologist Riley Gwin joins forces with Doyle McCleary, a 300-year-old Irish immortal, to find the coveted Star of Ice and return it to the Island of Glass. “Grounded in Celtic lore, a clear understanding of myth, and a liberal dusting of magic, this is the compelling conclusion to Roberts’s trilogy” (Library Journal). In The Seventh Plague by James Rollins, a member of a British archaeological team who has been missing for two years stumbles out of the desert. An autopsy uncovers a bizarre corruption: someone had begun to mummify the professor’s body–while he was still alive. Can Commander Grayson Pierce and the Sigma Force team prevent an ancient scourge from reemerging and creating a pandemic?
