Vampire fiction got a new twist when James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell, both bestselling authors, collaborated on The Order of the Sanguines series. The first installment in the series, The Blood Gospel, introduced a trio of unlikely heroes: Erin Granger, an archaeologist; Jordan Stone. a soldier; and a priest, Father Rhun Korza, a member of the Sanguines (priests protected by the blood of Christ). The three banded together to fight against the striogi, vampirelike, soulless creatures.

Rollins and Cantrell's newest release, Innocent Blood, continues where Blood Gospel left off. Erin, Jordan and Father Rhun have reunited to find a child prophesied to be an angel made flesh.
Neither Rollins, who's based in the United States, or Cantrell, who's based in Europe, had ever written fiction with a partner before The Order of the Sanguines. We asked them about their experiences.
