SO today in the mail I received a copy of BLOODLINE by James Rollins. I have gotten halfway through the book it is just that good! I really enjoy reading books it's food for the mind and it keeps my creative juices going (especially in this time of reality TV shows) I really don't care for them and I really used to like Army Wives but all of a sudden I just got out of that mood. Maybe it is because I am living a Army Life, and right now it is super hard on all of us as we enter into this new transition. I could GO ON and ON about this and how much it sucks, but I do want a career. However sometimes I sit back and say to myself "is this worth it", I ask my husband and he's like no babe you keep doing it and I'll get there when I can"..... anyway this book really takes my mind off the current situation of PTSD, sequestration, army, and all this political crap in the area. Oh my I would totally love to meet this author! So James Rollins if you are reading this send me an email I would love to meet you and interview you on my blog.

About the Book:
In a thrilling masterwork that will make you rethink your perceptions of life and death, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins takes you to the edge of medicine, genetics, and technology, revealing the next evolutionary leap forward: immortality.
Galilee, 1025. Infiltrating an ancient citadel, a Templar knight uncovers a holy treasure long hidden within the fortress's labyrinth: the Bachal Isu — the staff of Jesus Christ — a priceless icon that holds a mysterious and terrifying power that promises to change humankind forever. A millennium later, Somali pirates hijack a yacht off the coast of the Horn of Africa, kidnapping a young pregnant American woman. Commander Gray Pierce is enlisted for a covert rescue mission into the African jungle. The woman is no rich tourist: she's Amanda Gant-Bennett, daughter of the U.S. president. Suspicious that the kidnapping masks a far more nefarious plot, Gray must confront a shadowy cabal which has been manipulating events throughout history...and now challenges the current presidency.
For this unique mission, SIGMA is aided by a pair of special operatives with unique talents: former Army Ranger Captain Tucker Wayne and his military war dog, Kane. But what should be a straightforward rescue turns into a fiery ambush and a deadly act of betrayal, as Gray and his team discover that the hostage is a pawn in a shattering act of terrorism with dark repercussions. And the danger is only beginning...Halfway around the world, a firebombing at a fertility clinic in South Carolina exposes a conspiracy that goes back centuries…a scheme that lies within our genetic code. With time against them, SIGMA must race to save an innocent unborn baby whose very existence raises questions about the nature of humanity, asking:
Could you live forever?
