    1. 4 A buddy audio read with my friends at BBB Now that is what I call cool audio This was fun, since the first time I read it when it first came out in paper format years ago, and I remember enjoying it then as well I always look upon this series as on a TV series with a new episode out every month Full of action, not to complicated, a main MC who is a modern day supper woman, and many tidbits of history, mythology and a healthy mix of action scenes, sward and gun fights, adventure and imagination [...]


    2. This was the first Graphic Audio read I ve completed and that made this book a lot of fun I liked the sound affects and the cast, it really was like a movie in my head.Annja is an archaeologist and works for something akin to the National Inquirer but for history She is better than the place she works for but it pays the bills and lets her travel the world to research histories This takes her to investigate a serial killing wolflike beast that is thought to have killed around 40 people before it [...]


    3. Thank you to Choko for setting me up with this series Graphic audio is so cool Its like the old BBC radio shows, but better Sound effects and wonderful actors.This is the beginning of the series by Alex Archer that begins with Joan of Arc and her sword that ends up in the hands of our amazing heroine, archaeologist Annja Creed.People keep trying to kill her, but Annja is way too tough Excellent series On to the next one.


    4. Have you ever been reading a book when all of a sudden a turn of phrase, an offensive passage, or something altogether different pops up and it all comes to a screeching halt Whatever it is, it bothered you so much that it colored the rest of your reading and you just couldn t go on, whether or not it was an irrational reaction In my case it happened with the first paragraph, chapter two pg 26 The rental Avery had arranged turned out to be an old Renault pickup truck If Annja had been a layman, [...]


    5. 3 stars This was lots of fun to listen to, but I doubt if I would have enjoyed it as much if I had read it The audio book has loads of great sound effects and a multi cast I would recommend it if you want to rest up after a challenging read it s fast paced, over the top, believe the unbelievable, action adventure escapism Thank you Choko


    6. This was really weird for me because up until now I ve never encountered this type of audiobook It s actually great because it really brings the book to life and yet the constant audio effects distract me Thankfully the plot is pretty simple and easy to follow and Annja the protagonist of the series is a likeable one She reminds me of Buffy The whole book brought memories of that awesome show The book is very action oriented and it s structure is similar to that of a TV show episode I liked the [...]


    7. I m giving this book two stars because I actually finished it I liked the characters at first, but as the book progressed, I felt that they started to become very annoying Oh Roux thinks he s always right Garin is an asshole Annja can kick anyone s ass and knows everything about everything I thought Annja s fighting abilities got out of hand by the end of the book She learned karate from the nun s in New Orleans That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read The fight scenes were very hard t [...]


    8. Gentlemen, I give you the Rogue Angel series.With all the new pulp talk these days, it s time to start looking at some contemporary novel series The 70 s and 80 s were good for the men s action adventure books, this millennia, not so good I keep expecting kindle and e book publishing to solve that little problem, but in the meantime, Let s see what else is out there.Unleashed upon the world by Gold Eagle, the Mr Hyde version of Harlequin Romance, in 2006, the series is up to 40 at the present Im [...]


    9. Things Annja Creed Is Absolutely The Best At An Incomplete List archaeology languages judo boxing swords rock climbing ropes gymnastics guns anthropology ethnography motorcycle tricks television production special effects writing books being on Letterman being super hotshe s like 24 In short, this book was hilariously, catastrophically stupid I read it because I was at a truck stop and apparently the audio book is a popular choice who knew It was on my reader so I thought I d give it a shot MIST [...]


    10. Well, for starters, the beginning of this book is very off putting It s one of those series that I can tell the writing style is going to bug me endlessly The writing itself, too, was very awkward at times and often told me who Annja was, rather than show me through her actions In this way I found it condescending, almost as if this book were intended for a much younger, and less intelligent, audience As an added bonus, Annja is the Maryest of all Sues She has some type of martial art skills, ca [...]


    11. If you are a history mythology buff and liked Indiana Jones but hated the portrayal of Laura Croft, this is the book to pick up She s a positive female role model, who doesn t fall prey to the over sexed stereotype which actually gets lamp shaded in some parts The book itself is a mix of fantasy Historical fiction and a good one for comic lovers Further, you learn some history about Joan of Arc, and La B te du The beast of G vaudan The story stands alone, so you don t have to worry about getting [...]


    12. It doesn t get much fluffy than this, but then again, that s not totally a bad thing If you re looking for a quick, action packed read, this book will fit the bill The character of Annja is just a little too Lora Croft to be completely comfortable and as such, just a little too perfect as well , but that doesn t overly detract from the fun ride This is adventure pulp for the 2000 s and it s pulp done well and the perfect tonic after a few too many serious books.



    13. I was not impressed by this book, it felt rather B Like the show Relic Hunter, a total B tv series, but still at least that show was funny while this book was lacking.I also saw that there are like 40 books out All with the same plot Annja finds an artifact, is hunted by bad guys, kidnapped yada yada The first few books are written by one author, the rest by different ones so I am sure there is a difference in quality too I decided not to read any .Yup Annja, she is great at everything She is sp [...]


    14. 2.5 stars This book had a very intriguing idea it s sort of a cross between Indiana Jones and the TV show Relic Hunter with a hint of magic I was excited by the idea, but ultimately Destiny ended up being kind of meh for me.I just didn t like the main character, Annja There was a lot of telling instead of showing For example, we were told quite a lot that Annja is a people person and loves to talk with the locals, but I didn t really feel like she was that friendly I was also frustrated by her c [...]


    15. Fun Fun Fun Superficial yes, Goofy yes Flawed in the sense that the characters are perfect specimens, egotistical, and wealthy Yep I read this book and subsequently another 12 of them for the sheer fun of it They are a break from the mundane Fodder for the soul and are fun Do not read them if you have to criticize everything because you will write than the stories are long Just escape and enjoy.

    17. Destiny is the first novel in the prolific Rogue Angel series written by Alex Archer.Here s the synopsis for Destiny courtesy of Fantastic Fiction An ancient order tied to the VaticanA blood fortune buried in the caves of FranceA conspiracy of power, greed and darkest evil Archaeologist and explorer Annja Creed s fascination with the myths and mysteries of the past leads her to a crypt in the caves of France, where the terrifying legend of the Beast of Gevaudan hints at the unimaginable What she [...]


    18. I wasn t sure what this book would be like The jacket makes it seem like a cross between Indiana Jones, The DaVinci Code, and a typical urban fantasy novel I guess in some ways that is true, but overall it is just an enjoyable read The main character, Annja, is strong, tough, intelligent, and beautiful, as is to be expected with a typical urban fantasy novel On the up side, she doesn t have the answers for everything, is willing to ask for help, and sometimes puts her trust in the wrong people S [...]


    19. First things first, I listened to this as an audiobook As a bibliophile, I love all things text so this was a bit weird for me to say I have finished this book That out of the way, I really did enjoy it I listened on a long trip up to the Midwest and it helped pass the time admirably.I have listened to another in this series so I was already somewhat familiar with the story, but hearing the beginning made much sense I enjoyed the characters, the ruthlessness with which they fought, and the stor [...]


    20. I wasn t sure what shelf to put this book in It was a mix of suspense, history, a little supernatural, and a lot of action It was a cross between Lara Croft and Indiana Jones.The main character Annja is just trying to make a decent living as an archeologist To supplement her income she works on a TV show that investigates historical mysteries When the book starts off, Annja is investigating the mystery of Le Bete, supposedly a werewolf, that lived at one time in France While searching for proof, [...]


    21. I feel a bit guilty giving this 3 stars when the previous book I read only got 2, even though it was better written than this one The plot here is preposterous Even the most corrupt police force can t cover up that many running gun battles in the French countryside The main character is an appalling Mary Sue She s smart, well educated, speaks several languages, is drop dead gorgeous and can kick arse even before she comes into her mystical powers.On the other hand, it is a lot of fun I enjoyed t [...]


    22. I m going back and forth on whether this should be considered YA friendly or not In terms of sexual content and language, there are no problems, but some of the fight scenes are fairly graphically described I m having a hard time deciding if they are as bad as some that I ve recommended for YA before, but my memory isn t great.Overall the book seems to be very Tomb Raider esque in terms of character and content Lots of exploring in caves, looking for artifacts, keeping the bad guys from getting [...]


    23. Archaeologist Annja Creed is in France trying to find material for a piece on a local monster for a sensational TV show Annja ends up finding that the beast really existed, but the most pressing mystery is to figure out why she is being followed by assassins and a brotherhood of monks Turns out Annja s destiny is bigger than she ever thought as she ends up with a magic sword that only obeys to her.I m assuming this is the type of series filled with adventures that involve Annja kicking and fight [...]


    24. I ve been meaning to start this series for ages It s a bit daunting as there are 40 books to it and I often worry that something that goes on that long is a real potboiler old word I know, look it up I was actually very pleased with both the quality of the hero and the action involved The writing makes an enjoyable read with well developed personalities and just a touch of magic Going on to book two so I ll wait and see how well it all holds up FYI They are short books


    25. Made it to book 7, by book 7 the heroine had found 5 world changing treasures, and still had to scrape to by to live.Nothing really changed except what new thing she was after just wow however the stories weren t bad, but couldnt take the carbon copy life


    26. I would read the rest if I had them, but I dont and I probably wont go out of my way to get the rest of them the book itself was not bad, it just did not leave me itching to read the next one


    27. Growing up on Tomb Raider games and Indiana Jones movies, I naturally enjoyed this book Annja fits right into the adventuring archaeologist story, complete with pistols blazing and, well, a sword The good Science is cool.The level of detail provided as the story unraveled represented the main reason I gave a high score to this novel The bits and pieces of the puzzle wove so well together that a lot of the story s weak points seemed negligible at times As a fan of Aaron Elkin s Gideon Oliver, I b [...]


    28. e ste velik obo evalec Lare Croft, ali ste pa zanjo e kdaj sli ali in pribli no veste kdo je ona in za kaj se pri njej dejansko gre, potem vam branje te sijajne zbirke ne bo nikakor odve e ve , e ste pravi Larin obo evalec, jo boste slej kot prej vzljubili In enako velja za literarno junakinjo, oz protagonistko iz te zbirke Destiny, oz po slovensko Usoda, ima vse, kar potrebuje tak en akcijsko napeti roman Sijajno protagonistko, tajno dru tvo, ki se imenuje Bratstvo Tihega De ja, fantasti no zgo [...]


    29. Fun Adventures I can t believe this is from Harlequin, the tawdry romance publishers Great character, awesome destiny, and a wondrous weapon to face it with A fine mix of Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider and The Chronicles of St Mary s Priory With 57 titles out there, it s going to take some time,but eventually I will read them all, unless they end up like Harlequin s other books.
