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.

"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)
I have listened to both books in this series and will buy the next installment(s) as well. The story is expansive seeming to encompass every myth and religious icon in the Judea/Christian history. The characters are engaging if a little slow to learn and the narrator does an excellent job with the notable exception of his Russian/Hungarian accents that seem too close to B movie vampires. A good listen for anyone interested in a fast paced story where history, thriller, and fantasy genres get in a train wreck and walk out smiling.
.. 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.
I did not read the print version
The characters and the excitement of learning each new twist
Both the Blood Gospel and Innocent Blood. He is great.
The past has a way of catching up with you. Even when you're ageless.
Would love to see a new installment of this series.
This book kept me engaged, which is sometimes hard to do since I have a short attention span. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Christian Baskous does such a wonderful job performing this amazing story. The plot is just amazing with such varied characters.
Jordan Stone, I always root for the good guys. He is the stabilizing character, the only one grounded to do what is truly righteous.
Yes, he is wonderful as always.
Absolutely, had to turn myself away again and again.
Good story, non stop action and creditable characters, who are well put together, the good and the bad. I'm glad the door was left open for more stories.
15 hours and a good narrator make it worth listening to.
I liked that it was just not another book with just a minor twist int eh story - this was new!
