I am not a thriller reader, I read urban fantasy for the most part. I have never read a book by James Rollins or Rebecca Cantrell until this one. And it worked for me. The world building was interesting and complete. The characters are sympathetic, the story was well plotted and it all made sense. I really liked it! I will be looking for another book in the series and I may very well try other books from these authors as they clearly know their stuff.

I have only read one James Rollins book before but I have read all of Rebecca Cantrell's Hannah Vogel series. It seems to me that their writing collaboration is really working well. This first book in The Order of The Sanguines series is a real page-turner. There is something for everyone in this book; historical fiction, mystery, thriller, archaeological digs, romance, vampires, religion and much more. At first, I was a little taken back by the vampire segments but it really works well with the religious aspect and I soon found myself engrossed and fascinated by the story. The characters are well developed and as you approach the end of the book, you are left with a feeling of wanting to follow them around for a little longer. I will definitely continue with this series and I anxiously await the second installment.

It was with some trepidation that I started this book. Although James Rollins is one of my favorite authors I didn't know what to expect from a partnership with Rebecca Cantrell. I expected a watered down or romanticized writing style.

Boy, was I wrong! This is one of the best yet from Rollins and I have to believe Ms. Cantrell had something to do with that.

The plot and storyline are original, the characters are deep and believable, and the action is incredible, cover to cover. I mean, vampires working for the catholic church... wow.

I'll say no more because I don't want to give any more away but if you like James Rollins read this book.
