“Innocent Blood” by James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell is no typical vampire novel. It is a complex, detailed battle between religion, miracles, and the underworld.
I did not expect to be drawn into plot as I was. The characters are described so humbly that you can envision the story unfolding before your eyes. The book is full of action, that drives you further into the plot, as if you were in Rome, and Israel, alongside Erin, the woman of learning, Jordan, the warrior of man, and Tommy, the first angel.
Once Iscariot spills the blood of the first angel the Sanguinists must save the first angel and have him bless the blood gospel and stop Armageddon. With the help of the Sanguinist priests Rhun and Christian, and the help of the angel Arella the battle ensues. You can feel the pain and anguish as the prophesied battle the evil Iscariot. Then you are thrust into feeling of joy as good triumphs over evil.
