Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine. I definitely don’t have enough anticipated titles for a once a week post, but every couple months I like to spotlight some upcoming books I’m looking forward to.
I have only ONE title to share for my winter releases… and it’s technically not even winter yet when it comes out! This is somewhat disappointing, though I suppose it will give me plenty of time to read the books on my list that aren’t new releases.
Innocent Blood, by James Rollins & Rebecca Cantrell
#2 in the Order of the Sanguines series
A vicious attack at a ranch in California thrusts archaeologist Erin Granger back into the fold of the Sanguines, an immortal order founded on the blood of Christ and tasked with protecting the world from the beasts haunting its shadows and waiting to break free into the sunlight. Following the prophetic words found in the Blood Gospel – a tome written by Christ and lost for centuries – Erin must again join forces with Army Sergeant Jordan Stone and the dark mystery that is Father Rhun Korza to discover and protect a boy believed to be an angel given flesh.
But an enigmatic enemy of immense power and terrifying ambition seeks the same child – not to save the world, but to hasten its destruction. For any chance of victory, Erin must discover the truth behind Christ’s early years and understand His first true miracle, an event wrapped in sin and destruction, an act that yet remains unfulfilled and holds the only hope for the world.
The search for the truth will take Erin and the others across centuries and around the world, from the dusty plains of the Holy Land to the icy waters of the Arctic Ocean, from the catacombs of Rome to an iron fortress in the Mediterranean Sea, and at last to the very gates of Hell itself, where their destiny – and the fate of humankind – awaits.
I really enjoyed The Blood Gospel, the first book in this series, and I’m hoping the second doesn’t disappoint.
What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?
