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.
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.
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!
