    1. 4 A movie in your mind indeed Annja Creed, our adventurer archaeologist who also wilds the sword of Joan of Ark for the Good , has come to believe that the rumors of the discovery of Solomon s Jar are for real This fabled jar is the one in which the biblical King Solomon bound the world s demons after using them to build his temple in Jerusalem, according to some traditions So, she sets on its trail, but ever since she has been chosen to be a warrior for the Good, she seems to be a beacon for ba [...]


    2. Very entertaining and untaxing story In short it s perfect for a summer read Annja is fun and courageous but still unsure in her newfound role In that she reminds me even of Buffy from the beginning of the show The action sequences are well balanced by slower but in no way boring scenes that further the progress of the story So if you re looking for something to help you unwind you should give Rogue Angel a try.


    3. Graphic audio So cool Thank you, Choko Annja Creed is settling into her role as the new Joan of Arc She is such a kick ass character In this book we have King Solomon s story entering In the Tales of the Arabian Knights there are lots of stories about the jins and demons he trapped forcing them to do his bidding Now Annja is trying to get to a jar o demons before the Bad Guys get it.Meanwhile she gets a new bit of romance Excellent book and I am so excited to hit the next one


    4. The Rogue Angel series continues with Solomon s Jar In this episode, It begins with Annja Creed outrunning mercenaries in South America The novel opens with her archaeological research in an isolated village near the Men With Guns show up and threaten to kill the entire village unless they reveal Annja s location Before the desperadoes can get to work, Annja summons her sword and swings into action Plus points for coming up with the most disgusting mercenaries this side of the Katanga succession [...]


    5. This seemed disjointed then the first book in the series At times I wondered how Annja knew where to go next on her quest because there would not be information given She d be one place Something would happen Then she d be at another location with no explanation of how she knew that s where she needed to be.


    6. Given my appreciation for the first book in the series and desire to read an action adventure with mild supernatural themes, I figured that it was time to read the second Rogue Angel book GISTAnnja Creed has been the newest avatar of good for the past few months, but is still getting used to the workload associated with her destiny When she learns that a bunch of morally questionable folk including some nasty demons are looking for King Solomon s Jar, the means to bind demons to one s will, the [...]


    7. I thought this series had everything mystery, action, intrigue, and strong characters I couldn t have been wrong Solomon s Jar is full of action, and that is it There is a plot, but it is so thin it can barely be considered a plot Solomon s Jar surfaces, the main character goes to find it and keep it safe Along the way people try to kill her That s it No mystery about ancient civilizations, no character growth, just one long chase scene I was bored from the first 5 page long action sequence Bea [...]


    8. His second in the series Lots of exciting fights, including a fight with a six foot tall, hypnotized, blonde super model Oh, and she beat up nerds The end is corn, but the action is totally fun.


    9. Yes, yes, yes, it s predictable Yes, yes, yes, it s fluffy and full of fighting and a fair to middling level of violence No, it s not always believable and no, it s not a meticulously researched piece of historical or archeological fiction It s not supposed to be, nor does it make any claims to be and critiquing it for being what it is is akin to going to MacDonalds and giving the Big Mac and fries a bad review for not being flawlessly prepared sirloin Really This is only the second instalment i [...]


    10. Solomon s Jar begins on a stronger note than the first book, and a lot of that is due to having the groundwork already prepared, from the first novel The writing quality may have taken a few steps up, as well, but that could easily be my own imagination There is definitely focus on describing locations, but that s taken almost to excess as well It s just not that interesting I also want to note that this sequel is a bit graphic when it comes to violence, than the first novel there is a lot bl [...]


    11. I mainly read this book because I liked the first one so much Scenes from the first book was like stepping back in time and watching Buffy on TV for the first time I know, I know, a LOT of people say the series was awful you d wonder though, where are all the people who used to watch it Well, I was one of them, and I enjoyed it well, some seasons were good, others were downright deplorable But I was a teen, and you know what they say the young have terrible taste But they certainly know how to h [...]


    12. Okay, I was actually very disappointed with this one Rogue Angel is a series of scifi fantasy books that come bimonthly It s kind of like the scifi fantasy version of a Harlequin romance only you get the same main character and a different adventure with every book I read the first book, Destiny, and fell in love with the female archaeologist sword weilding badass Seriously, she s like modern day Joan of Arc meets Lara Croft meets Indiana Jones Pretty badass.Well, this book was a bit bleh thant [...]


    13. I m finding it hard to believe that she can t seem to go anywhere without having someone try and kill her I don t think there is a single location in the entire course of this book that she left without some fight forcing her to disappear before the authorities arrive The fight sequences are very detailed and imaginative and she seems to get as much as she gives in some of them so it s not like she s this awesome fighter that no one can beat, it s just that she spends so much of the book doing i [...]


    14. Rogue Angel Solomon s Jar is the second book in the Rogue Angel series, which is written by a team of authors known as Alex Archer under the Harlequin label At the time of this writing, there are 43 books in the Rogue Angel series quite the fruitful reading journey if you enjoy series In Rogue Angel Solomon s Jar, Annja Creed who is Joan of Arc s descendant, or successor is on a mission to track down the real Solomon s Jar, of which rumors had said it was last spotted somewhere in the Middle Eas [...]


    15. This whole series has potential, but there s several big problems that just ran me off Problem 1 Annja is just too perfect She s in her early to mid 20 s and she is good at everything she does She can fight with just about anything She knows way too much history to be realistic and she is a renowned archeologist The only thing she sucks at is shooting a gun She is dreadful at shooting, probably worse than realisticy, considering she has experience with guns Problem 2 Despite all the riveting act [...]


    16. Oh why did I read this book EVERY chapter her life is threatening and she has to fight her way out, and of course she is able to do even when attacked by than one person holding a gun because they don t take aim Worse one is when she is being attacked on the boat by a demon possessed model who is a martial arts expert Surely the noise of the fight would have caused the other person on the boat to come and investigate, but oh no that didn t happen apparently he was jumping off the boat as he kne [...]


    17. I know it s not PC to say a book appeals to a gender but I really think the reason the stars are so low with female reviewers is that this is a female hero written for a male audience Annja is very much a Lara Croft without the money and gadgets.Except for the magic sword of Joan of Arc she doesn t have a were animal vampire boyfriend and she doesn t go gun blazing with some supernatural every other chapter or fall into bed with one There ARE a lot of gun battles which I found too predictable in [...]


    18. Annja Creed seems comfortable in her skin as God s chosen new holder of Joan of Arc s sword She still struggles with believing in the supernatural, but she decides to try and find the Solomon s jar, which appears to have been found at sea This search takes her to the Netherlands where she meets a British archeologist, and they are not the only ones in search for the jar as they fight off the Russian mafia, cultists and other fanatics that want to get their hands on the artefact.I liked this sto [...]


    19. It was not that bad, but i wanted it to be so much When the last book was surprisingly free of theological philosophy, this one seemed to enjoy mulling over it The action became a little bit predictable in fight sequences and in gory details After about fifth arm that got severed by Annja i was rooting for her to go for a leg or something, you know to mix it up a bit The guts and blood were flying all over the place, to put it mildly Now after reading Laurell.K Hamilton i consider myself to be [...]


    20. Really 3.5 This story, the second in the series, read just like a big action hero movie script Solomon s Jar was set in multiple countries, with a huge body count and a mysterious heroine, Annja Creed, who can call upon a mystical sword that once belonged to Joan of Arc.We also had multiple bad guys trying to kill her and the Assistant, Aidan Pascoe, she picks up along the way after saving his life several times.Everyone s after Solomon s Jar, the fabled jar that King Solomon used to seal in Dem [...]


    21. Really enjoyed the book apart from the pitiful portrayal of a Brit I have worked in the Oil and Gas Industry for 30 years alongside many Brits and also spent some of my childhood in England and I have never heard a Brit speak like this Most Brits use the same vocabulary as Canadians but with a different accent The only people I have ever heard use the term Yankees are in my home state of Georgia and other parts of the Confederacy If an African was written in this style constantly saying things l [...]


    22. A Movie in your MInd Indy Jones Joan of ArcWith the help of her enigmatic mentor, a centuries old man named Roux, Creed sets off to verify if the Jar believed to be forever lost at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea was in fact recovered Following leads from Peru to the Netherlands to Israel to Brazil, Creed struggles to stay one step ahead of gun toting factions including Russian mobsters, English cultists, and the fanatical followers of a charismatic kabbalist bent on finding and exploiting t [...]


    23. Honestly, I wasn t even able to finish the book I got bored Instead of the kick ass female adventurer Indiana Jones type character I was expecting, I had a perfect character who excels at EVERYTHING EVER, and instead of writing well described action sequences, the author was too busy describing how her body moved and the way the sweat rolled down her skin This is a series that is aimed towards male readers, with lots of sexy running around, and less witty, thought out plot Not to mention the mai [...]


    24. While less enjoyable than the first book, this book did delve deeply into the issue of what Annja is and what her powers relate to The introduction of biblical Jewish mythology and legend as well as the constant travel sort of numbed the story a bit I felt a little too bogged down in everything that was going on, and the issue brought up about the incident in Tel Aviv sort of left me with a slightly sour taste in my mouth I d like some proof the Annja does believe that good transcendes religion [...]


    25. I am a sucker for archaeological fiction, and that is why picked this one up at King Soopers on a grocery trip once However, as expected, it wasn t that good It had potential, but the story just never developed The main character just seemed to go to place to place with no rhyme or reason, and very often learned very little of the mystery she was trying to solve She appeared to just bumble into everything trouble, people, and the solution And, apparently, she has long, tanned, legs the author to [...]


    26. Entertaining, as all Graphic Audio productions tend to be, bringing the story alive.Action packed and fast paced Solomon s Jar follows Annja Creed on another adventure, from Jerusalem to Greece to Rio de Janeiro We revisit some of the characters in the previous book and meet a few new ones on the way, friends and enemies, both.Sometimes the background music was a liiittle too much, but all in all the actors did a pretty good job narrating.Fun series


    27. Ugh This was awful Terrible writing, editing or both No continuity, it jumped from locale to locale from clue to clue without much if any explanation, it was so hard to folllow Then bam Right near the end a tryst without any sexual tension or much of an attraction for the first 3 4 of the book Really Such a disappointment after the first book I m going to read 3 the decide whether to finish this series or not.


    28. These books are entertaining enough at work, and with the sound effects they are even so, but I don t think I d pick up one of these to read it It s too complex for me, and I don t mean difficult to understand there is just so much going on with them And Annja is bad ass but I don t completely like her And she gets into weird situations I don t know I m also not paying the closest attention to them, so we ll see On to 3


    29. I was startled when Annja pulls Joan of Arc s sword out of thin air at the beginning of the book but then realized that it was the second book in a series It turned out to be a great book I enjoyed enough that I read the first book Destiny and it made sense of how Annja came to possess Joan s sword This is now my favorite archaeology series and I look forward to reading the rest of the books.


    30. King Solomon s jar is believed to have been found and a fishing boat s crew was murdered.Did someone murder them to take possession of the priceless artifact I felt this story was much violent than others I have read in this seriesTsipporah talking to Annja U have to choose between right and wrongevery minute of every day pg.280
