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)

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?

No one

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.

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.
