Summary

Summary

In a masterpiece of supernatural mystery and apocalyptic prophecy, New York Times bestselling authors James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell bring to a thunderous conclusion their epic trilogy of novels set between the worlds of shadow and light, between salvation and damnation, where the very gates of Hell must be shattered to discover the true fate of humankind in...

Blood Inferna.l

As an escalating scourge of grisly murders sweeps the globe, archaeologist Erin Granger must decipher the truth behind an immortal prophecy foretold in the Blood Gospel, a tome written by Christ and lost for centuries: The shackles of Lucifer have been loosened, and his Chalice remains lost. It will take the light of all three to forge the Chalice anew and banish him again to his eternal darkness. With the Apocalypse looming, Erin must again join forces with Army Sergeant Jordan Stone and Father Rhun Korza to search for a treasure lost for millennia. But the prize has already fallen into the hands of their enemy, a demon named Legion, before whom even the walls of the Vatican will fall.

The search for the key to salvation will take Erin and the others across centuries and around the world, from the dusty shelves of the Vatican's secret archives to lost medieval laboratories, where ancient alchemies were employed to horrific ends. All the while, they are hunted, besieged by creatures of uncanny skill and talent. As clues are dug free from ancient underground chapels and found frozen in icy mountain caverns, one that will destroy not only her, but all she loves. To protect the world, Erin must walk through the very gates of Hell and face the darkest of enemies: Lucifer himself.

With The Blood Gospel, the first novel in the Order of the Sanguines series, James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell combined science, myth, and religion to introduce a breathtaking world where miracles hold new meaning and the fight for good over evil is far more complicated than we ever dreamed. And now, in this epic conclusion to the Sanguines trilogy, Blood Infernal, they take us to the very pit of Hell itself, making us peer into the abyss and face our greatest fears, to answer the ultimate question: What price will we pay for true salvation?

Booklist Review

The third volume in the Order of the Sanguines series finds archaeologist Erin Granger, Army Ranger Jordan Stone, and priest Rhun Korza racing against time to unravel an ancient prophecy before Legion, a demon of almost unimaginable power, unleashes the Apocalypse upon the world. The Order of Sanguines, for those not familiar with the series, is made up of a group of ancient vampires who have turned from evil to good and who now fight the dark forces that want to take over the world. The first two books in the series were solid genre fare, but this one feels like a by-the-numbers effort, too similar in structure to its two predecessors. Rollins is well known for his action-adventure novels, including the Sigma Force series, but the action here is lackluster; even the characters, who have been the series' main strength (coauthor Cantrell is known mostly for the very good Hannah Vogel mystery series), feel thin and uninteresting. It's not a bad book but not an especially good one either; satisfactory for fans of this series, perhaps, but not a book that will garner either author any new readers.--Pitt, David Copyright 2015 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

In bestseller Rollins and Cantrell's imaginative third Sanguines thriller (after 2013's Innocent Blood), the series heroes-the Knight of Christ, Fr. Rhun Korza; the Warrior of Man, Jordan Stone; and the Woman of Learning, Erin Granger-must undertake a final quest to prevent Lucifer from being loosed on the world again. Korza and others like him are Sanguinists, who have accepted Christ and learned to slake their thirst for blood with wine. Strigori, who have not accepted Christ, survive by drinking the blood of their victims. But there are still worse creatures abroad, including the demon Legion, whose appearance may presage Lucifer's escape. An almost endless series of riddles and clues, battles and betrayals, take the assembled trio to the Vatican, Venice, Prague, and elsewhere. The heroes survive gruesome wounds and grueling tests before a climactic battle and a surprise ending. Agent: (for Rollins) Russ Galen and Danny Baror; (for Cantrell) Mary Alice Kier and Anna Cottle.
