It was only after I got it home and did some research that I realized that this book is one of a mega-series I had never noticed. It didnt make too much difference as the premises are outlined, but perhaps I might have benefited from some familiarity with the main characters, if only to facilitate bonding,which did occur but not immediately: THESE CHARACTERS ARE A BIT OVER THE TOP, and they kill when they see the need.

The opening few chapters are clumsy,packing in a lot of information and intrig

Fortieth in the Rogue Angel urban fantasy series revolving around Annja Creed, independent archeologist and avenger of wrongs.

My Take
And again, a conflict and a separation in the faith caused by greed and a desire for power. It’s the same thing today when Almodarresi confronts Thabit about his operations. This story is an elaborate set-up with lots of layers, just so the CIA can get the bad guys. I do love how surprised MacKenzie is with Annja when they get into their first kerfuffle.

*My Thoughts*

Annja Creed is a world-traveling archaeologist with a penchant for adventure, lost cities, mysterious codes and puzzles, and shadowy history that was never recorded. As heir to Joan of Arc's mystical broadsword, Annja has gained frenemies in Garin Braden, and former mentor Roux, and a desire to right wrongs. Annja finds herself almost always being drawn into the webs of darkest villainy with lives on the line; most of the time hers.

Yet another fun and exciting adventure with Annja. These books have become a guilty pleasure of mine. I expect nothing more from them than to entertain me for a few hours. And they do no disappoint. They are often more intelligent than most summer action films. But the extent of brain power and logic needed for them is pretty minimal. And that is precisely what I want. They are like quick exciting episodes of a big budget tv show and often I find myself binge reading them like they are on Netfli ...more

Recommended to Monika by: no-one

Wow, great book! Last few chapters were packed full of action, and really good all in all! I'm gonna give this a 4.3/5 starts, rounded to a 4, because I felt there were some loose ends left. What happened to the CIA and MI-6? Did MacKenzie and Yahya just leave? And MI-6 just gave up? I find this hard to believe. And what happened with Sophie, and Henricks? I know that Garin ransomed Thabit in the end, but there was no conclusion as to what happened with any of the org

The latest Rogue Angel book left me conflicted. On the one hand, the story was exciting (although the ending was kind of anti-climactic. That was it?), but Garin and Roux behaved nothing like I would expect from previous books, the whole CIA business was a little ridiculous (not to mention the brief appearance from MI6 to raise one fight scene to the ludicrous level), and I found Annja's thoughts concerning the kidnapped archaeology team a little weird (and what happened to the rest? And where d ...more

Probably my least favorite of the series so far. I've been reading the series off and since the first book, Destiny. It took me about three tries to get into it last summer and I finally finished it. Too many enemies, "good guys" and to me, I still didn't get some of the plot. I enjoyed other books in the series much more.
enjoyed it but it was difficult to pay attention to . Way to many fingers in the pie so to speak. Loved seeing Roux and Garin get involved again tho. Maybe I'm just tired of the series I'm not sure. Still have 10 books left in the series to read so I hope not.

Rogue Angel is my favorite series!!! Absolutely love it!! I listen to the audio book versions in my car especially on my 5 hour trips to drill every month. If you love action, adventure, and of course Super Bad Heroines, then you should check it out!!
3.5 stars

I liked that Roux, Garin , and Annja got along towards the end. I always have to read every Rogue Angel book that come out.
