    The Blood Gospel By James Rollins An earthquake in Masada, Israel, kills hundreds and reveals a tomb buried in the heart of the mountain A trio of investigators Sergeant Jordan Stone, a military forensic expert Father Rhun Korza, a Vatican priest and Dr Erin Granger, a brilliant but disillusioned archaeologist are sent to explore the macabre discovery, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body oAn earthquake in Masada, Israel, kills hundreds and reveals a tomb buried in the heart of the mountain A trio of investigators Sergeant Jordan Stone, a military forensic expert Father Rhun Korza, a Vatican priest and Dr Erin Granger, a brilliant but disillusioned archaeologist are sent to explore the macabre discovery, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body of a mummified girl.But a brutal attack at the site sets the three on the run, thrusting them into a race to recover what was once preserved in the tomb s sarcophagus a book rud to have been written by Christ s own hand, a tome that is said to hold the secrets to His divinity But the enemy who hounds them is like no other, a force of ancient evil directed by a leader of impossible ambitions and incalculable cunning.From crumbling tombs to splendorous churches, Erin and her two companions must confront a past that traces back thousands of years, to a time when ungodly beasts hunted the dark spaces of the world, to a moment in history when Christ made a miraculous offer, a pact of salvation for those who were damned for eternity.Here is a novel that is explosive in its revelation of a secret history Why do Catholic priests wear pectoral crosses Why are they sworn to celibacy Why do the monks hide their countenances under hoods And why does Catholicism insist that the consecration of wine during Mass results in its transformation to Christ s own blood The answers to all go back to a secret sect within the Vatican, one whispered as rumor but whose very existence was painted for all to see by Rembrandt himself, a shadowy order known simply as the Sanguines.In the end, be warned some books should never be found, never opened until now.

    • We all hate it when our favorite series or trilogy comes to an end, but I m sure that we hate it even when the last book didn t live up to one s expectations I had very high hopes for this because I really liked the first two books I even rated the first one a 5 star rating I thought that after reading this I might reread the trilogy again in the future, but I didn t like this book that much It was cliche, and the characters weren t as good as they were before It was a huge slap to the face tha [...]


    • This is a book I had wanted to read for so long Every ingredient in the synopsis whetted my taste buds it is so my kind of book Unfortunately, I spend the majority of my time in Norway and ordered it at my UK address Okay, I accept I do stupid things on occasion My embarrassment was compounded when one of the authors asked me if I had read it after I had told him her I won t say which one that I couldn t wait It was well worth waiting for anyway I could read this book a dozen times.I won t bore [...]


    • Just when I had thought I had seen and heard enough of vampires, along comes an intelligent work of fiction that at its core tells the story of an age old battle between two vamphyrric sects, the Sanguines and the StrigoiE BLOOD GOSPEL, the first in the series of The Order of the Sanguines books, is a winner from start to finish It poses and answers many questions about religion and the nature of priests Why do Catholic priests wear pectoral crosses Why are they sworn to celibacy Why does Cathol [...]


    • WOW James Rollins really stepped outside of his comfort zone with Blood Gospel I didn t get caught up in the wave of Twilight readers or movies So, haven t really read many vampire books Though one does NOT walk away thinking vampires when finished with Blood Gospel I really like the terminology he introduced in the story It separates out Rollins works into a genre of it s own I truly TRULY enjoyed the read Now, the HISTORY That s where he get me every time From the siege at Masada to modern day [...]


    • I love archaeology, relics, religious conspiracies and vampires so I was hoping for a good ride, but The Blood Gospel just didn t work for me I felt like it was riding the success of a bunch of bestsellers without adding anything original or even that interesting to the mix.The book was clearly trying to create a sinister atmosphere with the constant underground tunnels and caverns and torches, and scary beasts like wolves and bats and bears Oh come on Why can t there be a bad bunny for a change [...]


    • The Blood Gospel by James Rollins and Rebecca CantrellPublished 2013, William MorrowStars Review also posted at Slapdash Sundry Doesn t matter how many times I read this book this reread makes 3 , I am consistently impressed with Rollins and Cantrell s ability to tie supernatural elements seamlessly into historical events, blending and merging the two to create a fantastic story of good versus evil, betrayal and redemption, and Rollins typical save the world scenario Couple that with some amazin [...]


    • I am not rating this book as I didn t finish ita lot I didn t get that far into it and I ve had people get upset when I rated books I d not finished and had what I thought were valid reasons for giving a rating I won t comment here on the writing or the story telling Maybe the characters are some of the best ever to grace the pages of literature I don t know I couldn t get passed the vileness of the book itself.Look, if you aren t offended by the book I m not criticizing you or judging you Thoug [...]


    • This is James Rollins Rebecca Cantrell on the edge of blasphemy and I loved the book, devouring it in two sittings Opening with a glimpse into the heart of Masada, Israel, a dark tomb is revealed As it is destroyed in an earthquake, three survivors escape to face a demonic creature, before a priesthood come to spirit them away on a mission to save mankind Packed full of fast paced action, vampires and corrupted creatures, religious themes and emotional resonance, Blood Gospel will delight fans o [...]


    • Initial thoughts Holy hell What a fantastic conclusion to a great series I thoroughly enjoyed this one Review to come Eventually Review Actual rating 5 What An Originally Amazing Storyline stars No spoilers for any book in this series.Wellis is going to be a difficult review to write I tend to struggle with reviews of books in a series How do you talk about what happened in this book, without spoiling what s happened in the previous books None of my GR friends have read this, so I will tread lig [...]


    • I really feel bad to give one star to a book, so I think that I need to explain myself.Since the book is all about suspence, I have to alert that, from this point, all this review is going to be a HUGE spoiler view spoiler Reading this book I got the feeling that the authors decided that the two best commercial trends in books are vampires and shocking revelations about Jesus and the church, so they put the two together to write this one.Unfortunately, I generally dislike books about vampires wi [...]


    • Anyone who loves archaeology, combined with religious conspiracy, combined with vampire legend, will LOVE this novelCan t wait to read the rest of the series librarycrystal.wordpress 2


    • Blood Gospel overall 4 stars I have seen mixed reviews on Blood Gospel and, I ll be honest, I don t understand all of the negative comments I have some idea of what may be affecting those readers and I ll mention it through this review Having said that, I thought it was good I liked it and I ll be looking for the second book of this series 4 4 1 4 stars.Overview not synopsis.Because there may be some spoilers involved, I m going to shy away from giving a Synopsis I ll protect some information by [...]


    • This is the most incredible mash up of current popular memes in popular literature It hit every irritable nerve in my body First, we have yet another take on vampires Give it a rest people, that genre is so worn out at this point In fact I think Ann Rice and Charlene Harris have pretty much written the definitive vampire stories for the next century Second, this is combined with Nazis and archeology for about the 10 billionth time Another overdone genre.Third we bring in the Da Vinci code angle [...]


    • The final book in a trilogy is always difficult to read, the knowledge that you have to say a fond farewell to characters that you have watched grow and develop into the multi dimensional beings that they are now.Well can I just say that the Rollins and Cantrell writing combination did not disappoint The return of Father Rhun Korza sanguinist Knight of Christ , Dr Erin Grainger archaeologist Woman of Learning and Sargent Jordan Stone soldier Warrior of Man I have eagerly awaited since last year, [...]

    • I really like James Rollins Sigma Force books and I really like vampires, so I thought ok give it a try yeah should have left it on the shelf Its Dire we have a special group of Vampire Priests called the Sanguines hidden among the Catholic Priests well it was a stretch and kept on stretchingIt basically asks the following questionsWhy Do Catholic Priest wear Pectoral Crosses Why Are Catholic Priests sworn to celibacy Why Does Catholicism insist on the transformation of wine into the blood of ch [...]


    • Genre Mystery, Suspense, ParanormalRating 3.5 4.0 Review James Rollins, author of the Sigma Force series as well as Subterranean, collaborates with author Rebecca Cantrell on The Blood Gospel the first book in the Order of the Sanguines series As with other Rollins books, this story takes readers on a thrill ride that doesn t stop until the very end The main characters journey starts out in Israel where they uncover a starting find, to Germany where the Nazi s tried to hide away their loot, to R [...]



    • There is a reason James Rollins is regarded as one of the very top writers on the scene today Heralded worldwide for his superb Sigma Force novels, Mr.Rollins has produced a most stunningly amazing new novel, so very original in concept and execution, that one cannot simply pigeon hole THE BLODD GOSPEL, co written with the very talented Rebecca Cantrell, into any single genre This is a very complex and involving novel, one which is extraordinary in it s reach and concept.The novel begins in the [...]


    • I was very disappointed I was expecting historical fiction blended with good suspense What I got was teensy little bits of history that was comprised of tidbits of already well known facts mixed with cheesy romance I abandoned half way through The premise of the book is too silly priest vampires who survive on the blood of christ just too cheesy for me The characters were completely non credible and I imagine this is what romance novels are like I don t read that genre Each character being of ut [...]

    • I was disappointed in this book I have loved all of Rollins books, which is saying a lot since some of them can get pretty weird This one was so different from his others that it made me sad Where was all his science I love the scientific discoveries he makes and the adventures that go along with them This book had his adventures but lacked so much He chose to focus on the Catholic religion and get this Vampires Uh huh Weird How he connected vampires and the church was really Irreverent I can t [...]


    • A very nice end to a good trilogy and a thumping good read.All the loose ends tie up in a pretty satisfying manner and we even have room for a possible sequel.I loved the main characters, the action and the mystery, as well as the religious supernatural side of the story.I m taking one star off though, because of bad editing Small editing mistakes don t normally bother me, but these were a bit too big to ignore at times For instance one of our profesized trio has his right arm cut above the elbo [...]


    • New series, new collaborator, new genre for the New Year It s no secret to readers of my reviews that I m a huge fan of James Rollins novels, and have been ever since Subterranean was first published In the years since, in addition to penning the wildly popular Sigma Force series and several excellent stand alone thrillers, he has written seven fantasy novels under the name James Clemens as well as two young adult adventures I love that he isn t content to write the same type of story over and o [...]


    • Let me start by saying I ve read everything Rollins has published and have read none by Rebecca Cantrell After reading Blood Gospel I will have to remedy that oversight.But first things first If you re expecting a Sigma Force novel, stop right now This ain t it Completely different in just about every way Very much supernatural elements and rife with foreign matter to that excellent series.I think I was able to determine which portions were handled by the authors based on familiarity of style, b [...]


    • 4 holy tamale stars 3.5 stars really for the writing and a bonus half star because the story was so damn exciting and horrific Wow this was soooooooooooooo damn good Not literature but a mass market paperback that made me tremble with excitement and frightened me a number of times so that I did not want to go to sleep without my bedside lamp on low.A sexy vampire priest, a pretty and smart female archaeologist and a macho but somewhat annoying American army sergeant hunt for a gospel written by [...]


    • This is a very poor attempt by Rollins to start a new series If you are a fan of the plethora of vampire romance novels that are all the rage and hopefully becoming passe you may find this series of interest It is easy to tell which sections Rollins wrote and which sections his coauthor wrote It is very sluggish in parts and only builds up to a medium pace very unlike his Sigma series I kept hoping that the book would pick up to no avail As this is a series, the ending was written to entice the [...]


    • Like Dan Brown with vampires While I like James Rollins books, Rebecca Cantrell s co authorship was a strong addition A good read, and historical enough to be recommended for sophisticated high school history readers.


    • First of all, I finished a trilogy Woo hoo It s so rare I need to celebrate it Lol Sooo last time the trio of the archaeologist, the marine and the priest are working to prevent literally all hell breaking loose All I can say is Rollins never disappoints I started this trilogy because I saw him last year at the LA Times Book Festival where he spoke about this collaboration with Rebecca Cantrell I love these kinds of books that are about ancient history or religious history with action adventure [...]


    • If you want an explosive ending, you have to read a James Rollins book If you want a mix of new age religion, original fantasy, and breakneck action you have to read this James Rollins book This trilogy was one I honestly never wanted to end I ve read a lot, but rarely have three characters made such a place in my heart as Rhun, Jordan and Erin I bought the Blood Infernal audiobook because I couldn t wait until the paperback came out in my country and I m definitely not sorry To hear the accents [...]
