The Blood Gospel--#37 finished

This is a new James Rollins series he is writing along with Rebecca Cantrell.  The basic idea is there are evil vampires, have been since ever and Jesus comes along and saves Lazarus and Lazarus is first in a line of priests(?) or workers for Christ maybe that do battle with the vampires.  All of this is sort of behind the scenes of everyones normal lives.   That is the premise, then the story is a couple regular people, a soldier and a hot archeologist get thrown in with a vampire for Christ to hunt down the Blood Gospel.  If the premise works for you then the story isn't bad.  If the premise gives you problems well I am sure the rest of the book would as well.  This is the first in a new series so will have to see where it goes, I do have book 2 already.  I thought the premise wasn't bad, parts were clever and they used enough historical events that you can sort of see where it could tie in so good so far.  The story itself and some of the characters just kind of out there.  Good enough that I will go to book 2 at least.

I have already posted it on PBS, there are 4 or 5 copies already out there so probably won't move quick unless the series itself becomes a hit.
