Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

“A thriller of dark subterranean complexity, rather like a rare, vintage red wine.” (NY Journal of Books)

“A combination of religious conspiracy and another popular genre, and to reveal more about the concept behind this engaging novel would be a crime.” (Washington Post on THE BLOOD GOSPEL)

“There’s a touch of genius... in pairing a Dan Brown–ian hidden-codex mystery with a vampire tale. Let that suffice lest spoilers ruin the fun, except to say that the blood of the title is no accident.” (Kirkus on INNOCENT BLOOD)

“[A]nother darkly hypnotic hybrid, and supremely effective, horror-thriller… A harrowing tale that’s truly epic in scope. Not to be missed.” (Providence Journal on INNOCENT BLOOD)

“[C]aptures the imagination and leaves the reader panting in anticipation for the next adventure.” (New York Journal of Books on INNOCENT BLOOD)

“[An] intense and shocking thriller…filled with history, espionage, love, revenge, and the power of forgiveness.” (Library Journal on INNOCENT BLOOD)

Buchrückseite

In The Blood Gospel, brilliant archaeologist Erin Granger embarked on a mission to recover a miraculous artifact tied to Christ. Her journey put her in the path of a diabolical enemy and introduced her to an ancient and highly secret Vatican order known simply as the Sanguines.

Now, an attack outside Stanford University thrusts Erin back into the fold of the Sanguines. As the threat of Armageddon looms, she must unite with the eternal spiritual order and a terrifying power to halt the plans of a ruthless and cunning man determined to see the world end—a man known only as Iscariot.

In Innocent Blood, bestselling authors James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell again take us to the edge of destruction in a riveting tale of international adventure, intrigue, suspense, and supernatural mystery.

Mit großer Skepsis nahm ich den 2. Band der "Order of the Sanguines"-Serie zur Hand, fiel der erste doch nicht sehr überzeugend aus. Zu meiner Überraschung mußte ich feststellen, daß der zweite Band etliche Schwächen des ersten hinter sich ließ und eine durchaus originelle Mythenwelt erschuf, mit dem Mysterium des Blutes als zentrales Thema. Natürlich wird die Welt weider einmal (oder sagen wir, fast) gerettet-James Rollins' SIGMA-Serie läßt grüßen. Der Faszination einzelner Gestalten kann sich aber kaum jemand erziehen, ob es sich nun um Judas Ischariot, der Gräfin Elizabeth Bathory, Grigori Rasputin, oder dem Ur-Engel Arella handelt. Oder um den Beinahe-Versager Bruder Leopold...
Daher: fünf Punkte und eine Kaufempfehlung an alle Vampir-und Okkulta-Fans!

Von Komiker am 8. Januar 2014
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Hätte ich die Bewertung nach 2/3 des Buches abgegeben, hätte es ein paar Sterne verloren.

Wie dem auch sei, habe ich vier Sterne vergeben.

Manche lästigen Aspekte des ersten Buches in der Reihe waren immer noch da, jedoch ab dem Ende des zweiten Drittels kommen alle Strände zusammen und ich konnte das Buch dann nicht mehr loslassen.

Ich bleibe der Meinung, Rollins würde alleine einen genau so guten Job machen und ich frage mich, was Cantrell zur Story bringt. Ich werde mir eins ihrer Krimis antun, vielleicht werde ich da meine Meinung revidieren. Aber das ganze emotionale Pathos, das in manchen intimen Szenen zu spüren war, wirkte sehr plump, auf englisch würde ich "ham-fisted" sagen.

Daher nur vier Sterne.

One must read the first book before to get real exitement reading the story. Can help but to wonder the great great idea to write something new about vampire and church, evil and god, miracle and angels and all that mixed in the modern time one can think it could really be.. beware you meet the next strigoi in Rome.

Als sequel starte es gut bis sehr gut, ab der Mitte wird es etwas langatmiger
mit leichten Tendenzen zu Widersprüchen. Aber alles in allem .. eine zeitvertreibende
spannende Ferienlektüre

5.0 von 5 Sternen Blood, Adrenaline, and a Crazy Clever Slant on History 17. Dezember 2013
Von Judith Heath - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Innocent Blood follows the popular thriller, Blood Gospel, in the Order of the Sanguines Series. Cantrell and Rollin's collaboration in this daring tale explodes the boundaries of genre, taking their fans and new readers on a 4 dimensional odyssey in which the past and the present collide for the ultimate battle of good and evil.

Monsters of myth, and figures from scripture, confront credible contemporary characters with a deadly puzzle and enlist them to fulfill a world-changing prophesy. Intriguing science, a secret Vatican sect, gothic undead, historical villains --this book is full of mysteries! The storytellers bring alive both the present and the ancient past in their telling, with the sounds, smells, textures, and temperatures of pivotal historical places.

Woven into this fast-paced, surprising, adrenaline-juiced thriller are provocative postulations about sin, redemption, and the true price of penitence, as well as the realization (at least for me) that most of us find it easier to believe in demons than in angels.

I recommend that you read Blood Gospel first if you can. Have fun!

5.0 von 5 Sternen End Times 20. August 2014
Von BirdieTracy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
What a thankless job it must be to save the world. Beaten, bloody, betrayed, and risking death all for billions of people who must remain totally ignorant of your existence, and also of the fact that you've allowed them another day to be, well, human.

Time is racing towards Armageddon and with a traitor in their midst it's going to be even more difficult to figure out how to stop the clock. Angels, immortals, strigoi, demonic beasts and a couple of humans make for one irresistible read.

One of the most enjoyable things about this story, for me anyway, is the lack of a definite clear cut delineation between good and evil. Every faction believes in their own rhetoric and some of the arguments are credible. When I can see certain aspects of differing opinions have merit, it makes me pay closer attention to the story as a whole. Although in the end there is evil and no arguments for extenuating circumstances are going to be enough to overcome that fact.

My only real irritation with the series is Rhun's continual guilt over Elisabeth, taking responsibility for every single evil action ever performed by her. It would seem that hundreds of years of reflection, repentance and fighting evil have still left him with the emotional maturity of a young boy. If he had any tattoos I'm sure the largest would be "mea culpa" in appropriately ornate script. And now, after all the angst and breast beating, he has made in essence the SAME mistake- irrevocably changing her existence without bothering to consult her first. I suppose the next tattoo should read "bonehead".

In the end, this is why I read. As much as I loved HBO's "Carnivale" and as much as I still love "Supernatural", they will never be able to compete with books that carry me away. Books like this one.

Von Kindle Customer Richard H Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

James Rollins is one of my favorite authors. Yet after reading this and the first collaboration with Rebecca Cantrell, she too is in the top five. The dramatic twist on a group of priests who are everything that they seem not to be is a triumph of imagination. You must read the prelude to Innocent Blood; "The Blood Gospel" first then read this marvelous novel. I can guarantee, that is you are drawn to the strange and macabre without the blood and gore, you will be enthralled with these novels. These books are a tribute to the majesty of two minds working together. Once again, I would say that these novels sem to be a fittting beginning to a great mini-series for a forward looking TV network. Can I say any more than I loved the books and the authors are wonderfully imaginative and insightful.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good light read and my curiosity is piqued for the next installment 14. Juni 2014
Von c.cars91 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Storywise: Loved the fast-paced adventure and context-building. The Blood Gospel was amazing, it had me picking this one up immediately after, and for the most part I was not disappointed. Having taken an art history course just last semester, it was easy and fun to visualize the plot unfolding in famous picturesque settings. Lots of action, but did not convey as much macabre/horror as much as the first novel did for me. (macabre/horror is my personal ping.)

Character-wise [Bit spoiler for relationships if you care about that sort of thing]: A bit disinterested with how certain relationships progressed, and also annoyed at character portrayals at certain points. I'll be frank, as endearing and wonderfully in-tune Jordan and Erin are as a couple, it was the interaction/chemistry between Rhun and Erin that had my rapt attention.

Overall Impression: A good light read and my curiosity is piqued for the next installment. I'll probably have to reread this seeing as I literally devoured it the first time around.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not as good as The Blood Gospel 15. Juni 2014
Von regpinky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The Blood Gospel by James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell was so good I had to buy the sequel in hard back before the softcover was published. I hate hard back books because they are difficult to hold and jostle around when you're reading in bed.

I love most of James Rollins books, but I quickly grew tired of his Sigma series stories using the same characters etc. Mr. Rollins' earlier material was SO much better than ANY of the Sigma series books. So when Rollins finally came out with a story line that was something new, I grabbed up the paperback and found The Blood Gospel to be a story written with the imagination, wit and suspense that harkens back to his earlier material.

So, when Innocent Blood came out, I couldn't wait to read it.

Although it was good, it was a real let down as compared with The Blood Gospel. Although it continued the story line and characters and was somewhat just as suspenseful, half the time it read like a romance novel.

I'm not sure what Rebecca Cantrell's contributions are to these books but Rollins has never had so much lovey dovey romance and love story in any of his books. It just went on and on and on sometimes obscuring the story line and taking away from the action.

I enjoy James Rollins suspense and imagination, and romance is all good and well if it's a short part of the story, but this half romance novel was just too much. Since Mr. Rollins' books have never been filled with romance or a love story... I can only assume that this was the work of co-author Rebecca Cantrell.

And as the ending here leads one to believe there will be another sequel, I'll be less inclined or excited to getting it as soon as it comes out.
