In this riveting follow-up to The Blood Gospel, the first book in the thrilling and atmospheric Order of the Sanguine series, New York Times bestselling authors James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell deliver a tale of international adventure, intrigue, suspense, and supernatural mystery involving a modern scientist, a highly secret eternal spiritual order, and a terrifying power who must join forces to bring down a ruthless and cunning enemy and prevent the Apocalypse.

While exploring a tomb hidden for centuries in the depths of Masada, Israel, brilliant archaeologist Erin Granger began an incredible journey to recover a miraculous ancient artifact tied to Christ himself. The quest introduced her to a diabolical enemy determined to discover the book and use its powers for his own dark ends. It also led her to an ancient and highly secret Vatican order--known simply as the Saguines. Though she survived, the danger has only just begun . . .

An attack outside Stanford University thrusts Erin back into the fold of the Sanguines. As the threat of Armageddon looms, she must unite with an ancient evil to halt the plans of a man determined to see the world end, a man known only as Iscariot.

Innocent Blood --- by James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell. The nice thing, well one of the nice things of reading library books is that if you borrow a book about a theme you’d ordinarily avoid, you can take it back. No loss. But when you but a book and plunk down twenty buck as I recently did to buy something that would help keep you from becoming stir-crazy at 35,000 feet you’re kind of stuck with it: just you, the book, and six hours of flight time. Especially bad if you failed to read the cover blurb carefully enough to fend of buying something distasteful. Well here I was ,me, the book and blood sucking, heartless (literally) strigoi, aka vampires. I’ve read enough of Rollins to know that he can serve up a mighty interesting dish of suspense and excitement, often with historical overtones. But if I’d known this novel was gonna be full of night time hunters and blood feasters I’d have left him on the shelf.. “I vant to bight yur neick” has never been my favorite literary genre: it reminded me of that grainy, scratch black and white 1931 movie starring Bella “I vant to bight yur neick” Lugosi. But you know what? This Rollins novel works. The concept of vampires is no more nonsensical than aliens from outer space. After all, didn’t Bram Stoker pioneer the field of Science Fiction when she wrote Frankenstein. Anyway, this book delivers thrills and suspense and action in the way we`ve become accustomed to having cooked up by Rollins.

Much better plan and written sequel to THE BLOOD GOSPEL. Good plots, great development of characters and awesome storytelling. Can't wait for the next installment when our team face the challenge of 'The Legion'. Recommended read!

Excellent book. I had to struggle not to plow through it in one night. I cannot wait for the next installment.

Looking forward to the next one in the series. I suspect Elizabeta will become strigoi again, possibly even sanguinist.
