From the Author
About James Rollins
JAMES ROLLINS is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of international thrillers that have been translated into more than forty languages. Known for unveiling unseen worlds, scientific breakthroughs, and historical secrets, Rollins' knack for breakneck pacing and stunning originality has been hailed by critics and embraced by scores of millions of readers around the world.
The Critics Rave
The New York Times says that his "roguish charm comes from his efforts to persuade readers the story is credible [through] real-life sources for his novel's science, history and geography." Rollins' rare blend of action, suspense, and knowledge was also mentioned by the Huffington Post, which stated that "After Crichton passed away in 2008 he clearly passed the baton to James Rollins, who like Crichton, is a renaissance man."
NPR calls his work "adventurous and enormously engrossing..." and the New York Journal of Books had this to say: "If you're a fan of smart, entertaining adventure fiction, this is your summer beach read writ large....All the science, all the history, and all the locations are masterfully intertwined. The characters are multi-dimensional. And the story is, well, a corker."
The Story Teller's Story
As a boy immersed in the scientific adventures of Doc Savage, the wonders of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, and pulps such as The Shadow, The Spider, and The Avenger, James Rollins decided he wanted to be a writer. He honed his storytelling skills early, spinning elaborate tales that were often at the heart of pranks played on his brothers and sisters.
Before he would set heroes and villains on harrowing adventures, Rollins embarked on a career in veterinary medicine, graduating from the University of Missouri and establishing a successful veterinary practice. This hands-on knowledge of medicine and science helps shape the research and scientific speculation that set James Rollins books apart.
Explosive Page-Turning Adventures
The exotic locales of James Rollins novels have emerged as a hybrid between imagination, research, and his extensive travels throughout the United States and Europe, as well as New Zealand, the South Pacific, China, Southeast Asia, Africa, Australia, and South America. Recent jaunts include book tours and stops across the country and several European nations to give talks, seminars, and media interviews.In recent years, much of James' travel has involved meeting readers in small and large groups, at writing and fan conferences, and even aboard seagoing "seminars." James' mentoring and coaching skills have made him a sought after writing instructor and guest speaker for workshops, symposia, conventions, and other forums throughout the country.
James Rollins is the author of nine thrillers in the bestselling Sigma Force series (Sandstorm, Map of Bones, Black Order, The Judas Strain, The Last Oracle, The Doomsday Key, The Devil Colony, Bloodline, and The Eye of God); six individual adventure thrillers; and the Jake Ransom middle grade series (Jake Ransom and the Skull King's Shadow, Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx.)

I have been seeing posts of so many people who 'steam-rolled' their way through this book in a day. I couldn't. I'm too reluctant to say goodbye. I have been on the most exhilarating, exhausting, frightening and satisfying roller coaster of a ride through this trilogy of books. I have laughed, cried, screamed and covered my head with my sheets in fright while walking alongside these characters. The closer I got to the end of this third volume, the slower I would read. I couldn't let go. I tried to limit my reading to the evenings after I retired, but found myself stealing precious work-allotted minutes during the day. Dr. Erin Granger, Sergeant Jordan Stone, Father Rhun Korza and Countess Elisabeta Bathory have walked out of my life headed to new, unknown encounters where I can't follow.
In the first volume, Blood Gospel, we are introduced to Dr. Granger, Sergeant Stone and Father Korza who are thrown together investigating the discovery of ancient ruins uncovered after an earthquake at Masada, Israel. There, in a hidden tomb, they learn about a book written in Christ's blood by His own hand - The Blood Gospel. Their quest is to find this book.
In the second volume, Innocent Blood, we are thrust back into the dark world of the Sanguines, an immortal group founded on the blood of Christ. Subsequently, they must find and protect a young boy who is believed to be an angel given flesh. Their search takes them to all corners of the earth where they wind up locked in a battle at the gates of Hell.
This has been the most gut wrenching goodbye (to four people who I have come to consider as close friends) I have ever had to experience. Jim and Rebecca set out writing this series hoping to pull us into a world of the unknown, residing in their imagination, where we had never been. Wow, did they ever succeed! I don't want to leave. Kudos, you fantastical, Wizards of Words. Even though I read as slow as I dared, it still came to an end. I envy Jim's and Rebecca's ability to follow this group as they cross the threshold in that hidden Sanctuary far beneath St. Peter's Basilica. But, you never know. With a little hope and a whole lot of luck, one day, we may turn the corner in some dark, back alley on our literary journeys to stumble upon four old friends who have been just as anxious to visit with us again, as we have been with them. Thank you, Rebecca. Thank you, Jim. Please, continue to wield your mighty pens to conjure up and write about more magical destinations and characters for us to discover and fall in love with all over again.
Note: I have marked the book "some violence" and "no sexual content" but I must confess that I am not particularly sensitive to those issues so others may disagree with my evaluation. I also feel that such material is handled with skill so as to retain the impact without upsetting the reader (or at least without upsetting me.) For example, the books often include violent scenes but the author doesn't dwell on the blood and gore. He uses the scene to build (or release) tension but not to revel in violence for its own sake. caveat emptor.
I also love the way he builds a story based on solid scientific facts. These books are not so much science fiction as science that could happen!
Was kept on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book. Fast-paced thriller where the readers will find themselves holding their breathe through the entire book.
The writing is tight. I have read other books by these authors which they wrote independent of each other. They both write a good story.
"Blood Infernal" will likely not make much sense if you have not read the first two books in sequence.
I enjoy the fact that historically based detail is correct but the authors have added complicated twists that keep the suspense and intrigue taut. There is a strong spiritual connection in this series. It is not just a good vs. evil plot. I appreciate the strong reminder that choosing the "right thing" for others is not always easy nor the best way to proceed.
