This story introduced a new character that I found interesting. Easy is entertaining and a strong fighter that can rival Annja with her uncanny ability to intercept her attempts to discover relics. I did feel one character's general evilness was obvious and I had him picked as the villain early on. There's a bit of political upheaval included to add some tension to the plot as it moves forward, but overall, I felt a lot of things that happened were just too darn convenient. And I missed Garin.

The next in the Lara-Creed-Sorry-Annja-Croft-oh-whatever series.

Basic kick-ass chick brain candy, and ideal for eating up a few hours on a plane.

I expect this series to be a 3 star, but this book didn't make it to 3. I kept hoping it would get better, just never happened.

This seemed to go off Archer's usual track. Instead of heading out on her own archeological adventure, Annja's doing a "job" for Roux to replenish the pot. Annja's previous experiences have been investigations for History's Monsters or her own scholarly excavations.

We do have the opportunity of meeting the Elephant Child...who, amazingly enough, doesn't die. Annja has agreed to purloin an artifact for a private party---an action she has always despised and EC is after the same artifact for the s

Annja Creed is a Raider of Tombs with a heart of gold - and, luckily, the Blade of that Witch, Joan of Arc, that she can mystically call upon to help her save the relics of history from the clutches of unscrupulous archaeologists.

This was a fun book to read. There's not really necessarily anything new or intriguing here (the opening sequence, especially, seemed to be lifted almost entirely from Raiders of the Lost Ark), but it was a lot of fun to read in a trashy, pulpy kind of way.

The book start off in typical Annja Creed sword weilding fashion but archeology quickly dissolves into adventure and the body county rises much higher than in other Rogue Angel novels. Also, the novelty of th sword isn't well played throughout this book. It's still a nice diversion read but this series has so much potential and the books don't seem to be reaching that.

I don't know, but Annja doesn't seem to be capable of making good decisions. And she's not very intuitive. Maybe it's to push the story along, but don't sacrifice the main characters brains for it. Maybe there are different ghost writers writing this series. If that is the case, some of them are clearly better than others.

Not one of my favorites in this series. Just about everyone dies.. and I bet her arch enemy will never show up again. Her cop friend keeps showing up, albeit not very often, and never for something good. Other than that, it's Roux, Garin, and Annja in some mess that has nothing to do with them originally. Boo.

Another Anja Creed story. This time she is hired the find the Golden elephant hidden in the depths of the jungle in Burma. She is in a race to find it against a "pot hunter", a Zulu princess called Easy.
The sword is not in evidence as much in this book.

a different plot than usual - finding but not moving an artifact, battling 2 instead of one foe, finding a buddy to fight with instead of against, and lots of dead compadres. The crying jags still continue from the earlier books.

Another good adventure - these books aren't great, but good enough to keep me reading to the next one, and the next one has started...
