On Jan. 11 at 7:00 p.m., authors James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell will be rocking Mysterious Galaxy (www.mystgalaxy.com) with a double author signing for their new collaboration, “The Blood Gospel: The Order of the Sanguines Series.” Mysterious Galaxy should be rocking because these New York Times Bestselling authors are visiting on a book tour that includes stops in Arizona, Texas, and California.
Mysterious Galaxy’s website describes the book as follows. “The Order of the Sanguines series ushers in a new era of vampires in the first collaboration between James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell. 'The Blood Gospel' tells of an ancient cryptic order and the hunt for a miraculous and forbidden book— a book rumored to have been written by Christ’s own hand, in His own blood, a tome that is said to hold the secrets to Christ’s divinity and miracles, tied to a mysterious sect of the Catholic church.”
Amazon.com asked both Rollins and Cantrell how the book came about. Rollins said, “This book came about from viewing Rembrandt’s painting of "The Raising of Lazarus." It struck me strange how scared everyone looked, and this started me down a road of reflection about early Catholicism, vampirism, and a story began to unfold. I knew this could be a huge, ground-breaking new mythology, a story so epic in scope that I knew I didn’t want to tackle this alone.”
According to Amazon.com, Cantrell added that when she received the call to collaborate, she said, “The premise and the world were so intriguing and controversial, I said yes immediately.”
Rollins is best known for his international thrillers. The New York Times called his Sigma series one of the "top crowd pleasers.” Learn more about Rollins on his website at www.jamesrollins.com.
Cantrell writes the Hannah Vogel series, about which the New York Times Book Review said, “[A] bold narrator and chilling historical setting… unusually vivid.” Learn more about Rebecca Cantrell on her website at rebeccacantrell.com.
