Overview

Destiny (Rogue Angel Series #1) by Alex Archer

An ancient order tied to the Vatican...
A blood fortune buried in the caves of France...
A 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 discovers is shattering: an artifact that will seal her destiny; a brotherhood of monks willing to murder to protect their secret; and a powerful black-market occultist desperate to put his own claim to centuries-old blood money. Annja embarks on a high-tension race across Europe and history itself, intent on linking the unholy treachery of the ages with the staggering revelations of the present. But she must survive the shadow figures determined to silence her threat to their existence.

Yes, I read this book twice. I thought this was an amazing adventure for a brand new action hero beautiful Annja Creed. Beginning with the mystery of La Bete to the sword of Joan of Arc I could not put it down. A cross between Indiana Jones and Lara Croft. This is the first of three books in this exciting series.

I was looking for a fun book to read while traveling on an airplane and the Rogue Angel kept me entertained. The main storyline involves Annja Creed, an adventuresome Archaeologist/TV personality who becomes the owner of Joan of Arc¿s sword. This book is the first of the series and establishes Annja¿s origins with the sword. The storyline for this book focuses on the mystery of La Bete, which involves deadly occultists battling with renegade monks while Annja is trying to solve the puzzle and stay alive. The mystery of the La Bete keeps you guesses and ends with a satisfying conclusion. The author does an excellent job of writing a character-driven action story. If you are fan of Joan of Arc, Witchblade and the Da Vinci code, this book will appeal to you.

This is an absolutely terrific action/adventure with a wonderfully unfolding mystery, a delicious treasure hunt, secrets, a mystical sword (that you'll want to own), and -- my favorite -- a smart, witty heroine (I wanted to be her). You will stay up turning the pages to see what happens next. And the secondary characters are fabulous, as well! Two especially -- they made me laugh and charmed me completely. Some books you just want to dive into the pages and become part of the story and this is one of them. This is a book to buy, no doubt about it!

Annja Creed is worthy of a series. The archaeology and the action in this first book - Destiny - is reminiscent of Raiders of the Lost Ark but with a touch of the TV show Witchblade thrown in. The pacing in this story is great---a very fast read. Can't wait for the next one!

I just finished this FAN-TAB-ULOUS book. I powered through it in under three hours. It hooked me hard and fast. When another writer hooks another writer, readers HAVE to believe the book is well written. Annja is a kick-butt heroine in the same line as Laura Croft, Marion from Raiders of the Lost Ark or Sigorney Weaver's character in Alien. An archeologist, Annja stumbles onto a mystery while trying to make a living as a host of a history show. She's in search of a story, but what she finds is more than just a story. She finds a magical sword linked to Joan of Arc, a villian of great proportions, a monster and two possible villians who could also be redeemed as heroes. This book reminded me of my favorite kind of action films or books, The DaVinci Code, Tomb Raider, Raiders of the Lost Ark and all the action flicks I've seen over the years. To say that Archer created a movie in my head is an understatement. The tight writing, terrific detail and exciting pace didn't let up until the end, and it left me wanting more. I'm glad there are two more books to come later this year. If there was anything not to like, it was that there was no real romantic elements woven into the book. This didn't hinder the read though, and it was quite satisfying nonetheless. If you like action, like to see a woman empowered and outsmarting the bad guys, then this book is for you!

I love this series! You know how I got into this book? I had found Destiny plus 4 or 5 of the other Rogue Angel books at Goodwill. At the time they were outside in big boxes with a sign saying they were 25 cents a piece. Of course me and my mom shifted through them to see if we could find anything good. I came across a book with the Rogue Angel title and, after reading the back cover, it looked interesting enough. After a little bit of searching, we found all there was there and went inside to pay for them. When I got home, after figuring out the Destiny was the first book, I started to read and quickly feel in love with this series. Weird how stuff like that can happen huh? Anyways now I own all of the books, some used some new, except for the newest ones that are being released. I plan on getting those too though and I hope that this book continues with the series. Though with 41 books, they may be running out of ideas for this book. Still great book, one everyone should read for they want a new series to get hooked on.
