Rollins and Cantrell ramp up the tension in their latest Order of the Sanguines novel. Once again they treat readers to fast-paced action, a gripping plot and a great blend of modern events forever altered by historical intrigue and otherworldly phenomena. The result is a suspenseful and entertaining read.

Still recovering from tragic events at the historic city of Masada, Israel, archaeologist Erin Granger is back at Stanford University when the Sanguines once again request help from her and U.S. Army Sergeant Jordan Stone. They travel to Rome where a series of grisly murders have the Order suspecting that one of their own has turned to evil. Now the danger is even greater, and ancient prophecies predict that this mission may be their last. (MORROW, Dec., 448 pp., $27.99)
