In this riveting follow-up to The Blood Gospel, the first book in their thrilling and atmospheric Order of the Sanguine series, New York Times bestselling authors James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell deliver a riveting tale of international adventure, intrigue, suspense, and supernatural mystery involving a modern scientist, a highly secret eternal spiritual order, and a terrifying power who must join forces to bring down a ruthless and cunning enemy and prevent the Apocalypse

While exploring a tomb hidden for centuries in the depths of Masada, Israel, brilliant archaeologist Erin Granger began an incredible journey to recover a miraculous ancient artifact tied to Christ himself. The quest introduced her to a diabolical enemy determined to discover the book and use its powers for his own dark ends. It also led her to an ancient and highly secret Vatican order-known simply as the Saguines. Though she survived, the danger has only just begun . . .

An attack outside Stanford University thrusts Erin back into the fold of the Sanguines. As the threat of Armageddon looms, she must unite with an ancient evil to halt the plans of a man determined to see the world end, a man known only as Iscariot.

With The Blood Gospel, the first novel in the Order of the Sanguine series, James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell breathtakingly combined science and religion and introduced a world where miracles hold new meaning and the fight for good over evil is far more complicated than we ever dreamed. In Innocent Blood, they again take us to the edge of destruction . . . and into the deepest reaches of imagination.

Omg, is all I can really say. This book was nothing like I expected. I loved the adventure of this story. I found myself completely lost in this book.

So many things happening and happening fast. It was a fast pace book. I just don't have proper words to do this book justice. I was blown away.

I was confused in parts because I had not read the first book, but overall that didn't matter. I love the characters they were amazingly written. I felt that way about the whole book. Erin is a great character that had me very caught up when her point of view. Her character was my favorite point of view.

I liked Christian's character  as well for a side character he was well written. I loved were it left off for Erin and Jordan that was great. The my Little Ponies reference was wonderful because that is my daughter's
favorite show. I highly recommend this fantastic read.
