The Blood Gospel
Book #72 Read in 2014
The Blood Gospel by James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell
This book was sort of a merge between The DaVinci Code and The Strain. It was action-packed and had short chapters, along with an army of bad vampires and an order of vampires that are a sort of religious order. This is the first in a series and while almost 500 pages long, was an amazingly quick read. The main characters are Rhun (a "good" vampire), Erin (an archaeologist) and Jordan, a soldier. They are given the task of finding a book called The Blood Gospel, believed to be written in the blood of Jesus. Of course the bad guys all want the book too.
This book was well-written and kept me engaged. The characters were interesting and complex. I will continue on with the series.
