    The best of the THREE

    Rogue Angel: The Spider Stone: There are a lot of reviews here this bodes well for the series I imagine, who seem intent on revealing the story and plotline. Since I¿m not the first review and probably not the last I¿d like to focus on a few of the finer elements of the series, this book in particular. I am a HUGE fan of religious fiction, specifically Christian fiction, but I will read stories that have any hint of truth wrapped up in the. As I¿ve told my spouse, if it makes you think and investigate further than that¿s always a good thing. A quick run through Google will point you not only to the Hausa people but also to information about the Spider God (fictional though it may be). Combine that with the already legendary sword of Joan of Arc and you have the foundation for a great read. I hate to be clichéd but I must admit that I found this book to be quite the page turner. I haven¿t had this much fun since book 3 of the ¿Left Behind¿ series, at which point I just started flying through THAT series. Although I am prejudiced about this book, since I have read and reviewed the other two, I do find one common irregularity in all of them. These are very well written books of action, intrigue, mystery, suspense and information. But I find myself getting completely LOST in at least one fight seen in every book. Now I will admit, The Spider Stone seemed to rely more on character development and plot advancement that violence, but in the same vein the fight in the cave was over WAY to quickly for MY enjoyment. However, if you a fan of action the rope bridge chapter will keep you reading all the way through to the end. Over all an A+ and surely the best book of the three, so far. I admit that I am now expecting a great deal of good things from this author in the future. I also commend GOLD EAGLE for publishing a series that has as much thought provoking material as this one does.! Buy it, read it, enjoy it, and then run out and get the FIRST two!

    LOVED THIS BOOK!!

    In The Spider Stone, the third Annja Creed adventure, author Alex Archer deftly portrays the mysterious and often dangerous world of his intriguing character. Annja is a heroine of our time, a fearless adventurer with an education in archaeology and her own cable show. Raiders of the Lost Ark meets MTV. She is a modern day Joan of Arc who can conjure up an ancient sword that has chosen her to wield it. A mass grave linked to the Underground Railroad and a cryptic stone artifact reveal a dark secret from Africa¿s primitive past. A merciless African warlord and a ruthless international corporate mogul prove to be daunting adversaries. And it¿s a race against time for Annja to stop those who would unleash the Spider God. This is a fast paced quest you shouldn¿t miss. Alex Archer has created a compelling series that keeps getting better with each new book.

    The Best Yet

    The third book in the Rogue Angel series comes out November 7, 2006 and I am telling you right now that you need to preorder a copy. I was lucky enough to receive an advance reading copy and it is by far the best installment of Annja and her adventures. It¿s my favorite of the three to date. Annja is a very human character she¿s the person you would like to think you would be if you had to step up to the plate and fight absolute evil with a broad sword. All in all, it is great entertainment mixed with some interesting facts that you might not come across everyday. The author has really done his research about the period of time involving slave trade as well as some of the ancient African cultures. It was nice to have some facts tied into all the fantastic adventure.
