I’d never read James Rollins before. Religious based fiction has never been a huge draw to me, but I found myself pulled into this story and wanted to know more. It was an excellent leadin to the followup novel Blood Innocent.  For such a short story, the authors managed to pack a lot of action and story into the pages.  It definitely accomplished its purpose of making me eager to read the followup novel, which I also review.
