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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Love it!

I am loving these Sanguine vampire priests! They are so awesome! I love the personality classes of all of characters, and how their difference make the narrative work.

I am looking forward to the next installment!

Disappointed subpar Rollins

I love JR. I've even met him. This story is just painful. I really detest love triangles and even love squares as this book managed. The characters are very one dimensional, which is not typical of Rollins. I'm thinking that collaboration has really just not worked in his favor. I read the first book, but elected audio for the second in the series. Part of my problem could also lie with the narrator who is so sing songish it kills the tale. I cannot stand him. If he narrates the third tale I will skip finishing the series altogether. The lack of character development mixed with poor story telling just makes it not worth the time.

Hard to understand / listen instead

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not sure really enjoyed the first one but this one could not get past the first chapter

What could James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not sure maybe not jump past and present

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Nothing they where fine

What character would you cut from Innocent Blood?

Again not sure

Any additional comments?

It is okay

I really enjoyed The Blood Gospel and was excited to continue the series. Was pretty let down with this. Just didn't have what the first one did.

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.
