    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 any of you by repeating half of the synopsis as it s up there in black and white for your perusal What I will do, is say what I loved about it I have always loved Rollins style and the kind of book he writes To me, he is akin to Dan Brown, but with a keener edge Where Brown takes a breather with lengthy descriptions of historical locations which is okay for a history buff such as myself Rollins just ploughs on with the story and never relents with his pace Of course, this is a collaboration with Ms Cantrell and together I feel they are a formidable partnership.A cocktail of ancient mysteries, cults, vampires of both persuasions, secret societies, the Nazis, a host of historical greats, and the Catholic Church What could a reader ...

    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, th...

    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 Strigoi.THE 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 Catholicism insist that the consecration of wine during Mass results in the transformation to Christ s own blood The answers provided by the authors are sure to astound you.This entire novel is a rollercoaster ride that takes the protagonists to Russia, Italy and the Middle East, encountering trouble around every corner Their pursuit of The Blood Gospel puts them in touch with some very deadly individuals, both living and undead Included in this group is the infamous Russian kno...

    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, instead of feeding people s fears of already misunderstood species In the end the atmosphere felt pompous than anything else I think it was the action, guns and big booms that took the focus from the story itself, leaving me yawning Some action is good, even preferred in these types of books, but enough is enough.One of the few things I liked about this book was Grigori s character He was the only one who intrigued me as a character, not a stereotype of a good or a bad guy like the rest of them The funniest thing about the characters was that the only two really good guys in a bigger role were American What a shocker As a European I could feel a little offended that the book insinuates there s something wrong with all of us foreigners , but it s just too funny Like the German archaeology student who gets u...

    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 fema...

    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 Though I do want to give a heads up to Christian readers who may be offended I see a couple of friends here on GR who are Christians and they read the book without my reaction so I leave it to you.We open the book insulting both the Christian and Jewish religion Christ s name and Jewish traditions are invoked at what is essentially the human sacrifice of a little girl First off Christians weren t at the siege of Masada This was a last stand battle of Jewish Zealots and ended in a mass suicide to keep from falling into Roman hands.The storyline uses it as part of it s ritual Just story telling to some maybe so as I said, no rating I leave it to you.The book revolves around the idea of a volume written by Christ the contents of which can be disastrous.Look, Christ brought one Gospel the word Gospel means good news which casts odd implications around the title of this ...

    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...

    2.5 stars but I m feeling kind I ve never read this author before and on the basis of this, I m not sure I will in the future It was a meh blend of Dan Brown , Sanctus and a romance novel I m not a Christian but I didn t like the idea of trying to include Vampires in ...

    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 with superpowers and or sexy yes, I tried Charlaine Harris, Laurell Hamiltonand I still prefer Bram Stoker and I am tired about books about descendants of Mary Magdalen, cousins of Judas, friends of John the Baptist, new Gospels, all powerful holy relics and so on and I don t think that mixing two old ideas you can obtain a good new one.The plot is fast but not brilliant.You have good vampi...
