Publisher's Summary

A vicious attack at a ranch in California thrusts archaeologist Erin Granger back into the fold of the Sanguines. Following the prophetic words found in the Blood Gospel, Erin must join forces with Army Sergeant Jordan Stone and Father Rhun Korza to discover and protect a boy believed to be an angel given flesh. But an enigmatic enemy of immense power and terrifying ambition seeks the same child, not to save the world, but to hasten its destruction. For any hope of victory, Erin must discover the truth behind Christ's early years and understand His first true miracle, an event wrapped in sin and destruction, an act that yet remains unfulfilled and holds the only hope for the world. The search for the truth will take Erin and the others across centuries and around the world, to the very gates of Hell itself, where their destiny, and the fate of mankind, awaits.

What the Critics Say

"Fans of THE DA VINCI CODE will find much to admire in Christian Baskous's narration of this religious thriller, complete with an angel on earth. Baskous's voice has a raspy quality that heightens the adventurous mystery at the center of this sequel. He manages capably with archaeologist Erin Granger, making her academic credentials believable with a voice that sounds intelligent and measured. Confident in his style, Baskous transitions easily between dialogue and accents for characters and the narrative of high-action sequences." (AudioFile)

    "This series is very imaginative and thrilling!"

    I have always loved the way James Rollins uses fact and fiction in his novels and adding Rebecca Cantrell was genius!

    "good storyline"

    I've enjoyed the series thus far - down to the last book. The only thing I have not liked is the narration. I always hate to critique a narrator, because it just may be a particular series. Unfortunately, in this case the narrator does not make the book ... only the storyline keeps me coming back. Not sure I would have kept on listening if this wasn't a series.

    "Edge of my Seat mystery!!"

    Excellent, compelling, interesting story! Read book 1, but really enjoyed listening to book 2. Definitely kept my interest. Can't wait to "listen" to book 3.

    "Lite Entertainment"

    This book was a pleasant switch from the more heady books I "read" & in that enjoyable. The language would preclude it from being a YA or at least really young audience, however it's content is pretty simplistic as if written for young adults which is why I mentioned it was a pleasant switch from my normal heady books.
    To sum it up, it is entertaining but as others have mentioned not really up to Rollins' usual standard. I was able to listen to both and enjoy them thoroughly. A great escape from work & pressing matters of the mind. The characters were truly likable, even some of the villains & monsters.
    Christians reading lends the flavor to the young adult sometimes almost like an audible comic book. Not like a serious type, in fact if he was trying to be a narrator the likes of Michael Kramer, Muller (wow), George Guidall et al he failed miserably but as a lite entertainment "portrayer" he hit the spot.
    I'll get book 3 now. I'm enjoying the respite. If you agree with anything I've written I believe you too will enjoy the literary vacation so get Book 1 & give it a chance before tossing it back to audible!

    "An adventure"

    This was a fun book. I have the hard copies as well but the narrator did a good job of adding a bit of play into the emotions and attitudes of the characters. Many of which talk to parts of us all.

    As far as the story, I enjoyed the possibilities laid out by using bits of history intertwined throughout the plot. It was a fun read, or in this case, audio.

    "As with many audio books, the narrator can make .."

    .. or break the read. This book is broken. Mr. Baskous was all over the map with his accents-- even in straight narration. I felt at times I was in the middle of a stage play. The story was good, but if there is a sequel, I will read the hard copy rather than endure 15 hours of this narrator.

    "Fantastic! Wishing there was another one."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Innocent Blood to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters and the excitement of learning each new twist


    Have you listened to any of Christian Baskous’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Both the Blood Gospel and Innocent Blood. He is great.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The past has a way of catching up with you. Even when you're ageless.


    Any additional comments?

    Would love to see a new installment of this series.

    "Better Than the Book 1"
    What made the experience of listening to Innocent Blood the most enjoyable?

    Christian Baskous does such a wonderful job performing this amazing story. The plot is just amazing with such varied characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jordan Stone, I always root for the good guys. He is the stabilizing character, the only one grounded to do what is truly righteous.


    Have you listened to any of Christian Baskous’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, he is wonderful as always.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely, had to turn myself away again and again.
