    1. 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 [...]


    2. 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 [...]


    3. 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 [...]


    4. 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 [...]


    5. 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 [...]


    6. 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 [...]


    7. 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 [...]


    8. 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 [...]


    9. 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


    10. 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 [...]


    11. 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 [...]


    12. 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 [...]


    13. 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 [...]



    14. 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 [...]


    15. 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 [...]

    17. 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 [...]


    18. 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 [...]


    19. 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 [...]


    20. 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 [...]


    21. 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 [...]


    22. 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.


    23. Wow What can I say about The Blood Gospel except, HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK The Blood Gospel was an incredible adventure reminiscent of Dan Brown s Angels and Demons The Da Vinci Code with one main difference the incorporation of the preternatural James Rollins Rebecca Cantrell weave a tale that grabbed a firm hold and would not let go The relationship between the trio charged with saving the world from an enemy that no one knew existed is interesting and complicated and engag [...]


    24. SPOILER ALERT I won this book as an ARC giveaway Blood Gospel was not what I expected The beginning did grab me into the storyline However by halfway through the book I was losing interest really fast I didn t care for any of the characters and although I like vampires, I just didn t like that element in this particular story I did not dislike the whole book, as these author s do know how to write well I just wasn t that impressed as I would have hoped.If you liked books such as The Divinci Code [...]


    25. While I enjoyed this book and the ideas behind it, there were flaws However, I love vampires so much I glazed over many of them.The story had a nice pace considering the mystery aspect.I will continue on to the next in the series.I listened to this book on audio and for some reason I miss of the story than if I would have if I had the physical book.


    26. I have to agree with what someone else said about this book, it is a little too much fantasy and real mixed.I don t usually mind urban fantasy but this book feltwrong, and not honoring to Jesus Christ.



    27. I ve read quite a few James Rollins novels so far, and while I ve enjoyed them, they have always seemed to fall just a little short of a top tier read It s like they were missing something that was always hard to put my finger on But now that he s teamed up with Rebecca Cantrell for this first book in the Order of the Sanguines series, the result is, indeed, top notch.There is something here for almost every reader Whether you like conspiracy books, or ancient mystery books, or action adventure [...]


    28. Authors James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell have joined forces to create a thriller infused with the unrelenting action he s known for and the horror that s her base Rollins is a long time favorite and Cantrell is new to me But based on THE BLOOD GOSPEL, she looks to become another writer I don t miss.The Blood Gospel of the title is the prize in the first book of The Order of The Sanguine series The Sanguinists are a sect of Catholic priests that are a bit different They are vampires, called the [...]
