A dark force is released and wreaking havoc amongst the sanguines and mortals. A string of grisly murders occurring around the world brings together Jordan Stone, Rhun Korza, and Erin Granger to once again save the world. But this time, the evil may be too much for even them to handle.


Jordan Stone – Military Forensic Expert and The Warrior of Man
Father Rhun Korza – Vatican Priest and the Knight of Christ
Dr. Erin Granger – Archaologist and the Woman of Learning.


This is billed as the final entry in the Order of the Sanguines series, which really is a shame because it’s the one series of James Rollins I personally have enjoyed the most. I like the action and the mythology that is incorporated into the storylines.

As usual within this, there were a lot of twists, turns, and cliffhangers. There were holy betrayals, and allies you’d never expect. With a force as evil as what they go up against, one has to wonder if they will make it out alive. To answer that question, you’ll just have to pick up Blood Infernal.

If there were one drawback to it, it would be a subplot involving a character from the past novel(s). That storyline never really seems to fit into the whole of this story, and seems as if it was throne in just to include the character. If that part were left out, I think the story would have functioned just the same.

If I were to rate this on my usual scale, I would rate it for 18 or older. The reasoning behind it is because of a lot of the violence, some language, and adult situations. But if you’re a fan of Mr. Rollins, a Fan of the Sanguines series, or just a fan of Paranormal Fantasy in general, than you definitely want to check out the final entry in the Sanguines trilogy. Be sure to drop back by and let us know what you thought.
