Rogue Angel : Destiny

This is the first book in the Rogue Angel series by Alex Archer. :)

Book Blurb:

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.

This is a departure from my usual read. Annja is like Indiana Jones, Laura Croft and Nancy Drew all rolled into one. LOL I really enjoyed this book and look forward to more in the series.

I just found out that Alex Archer is not one person - each of these books are written by a different author. That is unique in and of itself- I wonder how it is going to effect the books. I'm sure they will differ - in writing style if nothing else. Interesting......

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. :)
