Rogue Angel

5 Hours
978-1-59950-835-1
Ages 13+
It started as a dream -- a redheaded warrior king fought and died for his men centuries ago. The dream would lead archaeologist Annja Creed to the king''s undisturbed corpse... and one of England''s greatest mythical artifacts.

Deep in an archaeological dig in England''s Midlands, Annja locates a braided necklace around a mummified king''s neck. Made of an unusual material -- not quite obsidian, but gleaming with multihued color -- the torc is an astonishing find. But someone knows exactly what the torc means. And he will do anything to get his hands on the Tear of the Gods. When the dig is compromised and innocent archaeologists are slain, even Annja herself is left for dead. Now she is fleeing for her life, not knowing the terrifying truth about the relic she risks everything to protect -- or the devastating consequences should it fall into the wrong hands...

Dang, This Sh**'s Wild by Rachel (Posted on 11/27/2018)
The title was my exact initial reaction upon listening to this particular iteration.

If you have ever wanted to listen to a woman fight off terrorists with a magical medieval sword while hitchhiking across England with a Catholic priest, 1. you have very specific and imaginative tastes and 2. this is the book for you.

While I found this one to move a little more slowly than some Rogue Angel iterations (this was actually the first one I listened to after Destiny, and Mel Odom's books tend to move at breakneck speeds, so maybe I was just expecting a different standard), the side characters were fun enough that it wasn't too bad. The story can get the good kind of crazy, and though some Rogue Angel cliches were present (how many times have Annja's archaeological digs been hijacked and attacked by criminals with multiple casualties?? I'm just waiting for the book where someone finally steps in and says "Yeah OK no, this woman is clearly jinxed. Keep her away from the site so no one dies.") Joe Nassisse usually strikes a good balance between gloriously campy and genuinely smart.

The acting of this iteration was fantastic. Oftentimes the secondary characters can be a touch hit and miss, which can make books where the secondary characters play a major role a little awkward, but everyone did a great job here. And the main cast goes without saying. Colleen Delaney is obviously awesome, but I also want to praise Terence Aselford for his performance as Garin. Garin wasn't in a ton of this book, but there was a fun scene that made me realize that he could very easily been a pretty off-putting character had a less charming actor been playing him. Honestly, Annja and Garin's...whatever the heck they are is probably one of the series highlights to me.

Also, this book had one moment where I felt like the GA crew were poking a little fun at the series themselves, and I dig that.
Tear of the Gods by Chris (Posted on 10/12/2017)
It's corruption, greed, and fanaticism that make this story go round. The aim of archeology is to discover the past, learn its stories, appreciate the beauty of what our ancestors created. Instead, that beauty is corrupted by the Committee and its greed for hiding history behind closed doors for private pleasure, to fulfill a need to hoard, to have what no one else has, to have it simply to sell it for the money. No matter who it may destroy. Then there's the fanatic who kills for it simply to further their own cause.

I do enjoy the combination of history, action, and taking down the bad guys. Annja is the epitome of it all with her love of the past, her fighting skills, and her own sense of justice. Reinforced by Joan of Arc's broadsword, Annja has some formidable gifts we're only too glad she uses on the side of good. Now, if only her presence didn't kill so many off. I was really hoping to see more of Sebastian Cartier.

My quibbles include: How did the people Annja freed at the camp get recaptured? Did she ever give the reporter his exclusive? If the torc was radioactive, why did Archer ignore that particular danger? Just how did Garin get his hands on it? Please, tell me something happened to Dr. de Chance. There's just too many holes for this story to get a "5".
Tear of the Gods by Bonnie (Posted on 3/7/2017)
Great story, great characters, awesome production! I love the stories when Roux and Garrin get involved somehow. The good and evil tug of war adds the story.
Really great story by sue (Posted on 7/11/2015)
For some reason listening to this story, you feel as if it is longer than usual and that is not a bad thing! There are just some wonderful twists and turns that carry you further into the developmetn of all the characters. You a great clear story that has a very clever and contemporary twist towards the end!

Thanks again to the team at Graphic Audio!
Wow, the best RA yet! by Brandon (Posted on 6/18/2014)
This was my favorite Rogue Angel adventure yet (I've gone through roughly a dozen). There are a few reasons why this was so solid. First, the writing was excellent. The plot involved the usual "mythic/mystic" relic but this had a definite twist that elevated it from "fluff" to "major motion picture" quality. Seriously, this was really good! Second, the voice acting. Colleen Delaney as Annja is as perfect a casting as you could get. The accents were top notch (I especially liked the actor that portrayed Shaw) other than the Inspector, who seemed to have a mild identity crisis with his accent later in the story. Third, the ending! Most of the RA stories are like my first few dates as a teenager: A lot of build up culminating in a huge letdown at the end. But all kidding aside, this ending spectacularly and made the story complete.
Tears of the gods by robert (Posted on 6/11/2014)
Kind of like the cats eye. Very good.
Review by Wayne Noble (Posted on 5/23/2013)
5 stars all the way. Awesome story line and very good production. The mix of Roux and then Garrin at the end was good. I don't understand how the same person always seems to win and why Annja always has to loose the relic to the bad guys then go chase it. Thats just stuff I've noticed after listening to 31 albums straight. This author (Joseph Nassie, one of the six that use the name alex archer) is very good. He also wrote a couple others and both got 5 stars from me. Henshaw did not die in the dragons mark. He had a bullet proof vest on and at the end explains that he didn't die but was left unconscious so that explains his reappearance. This author just keeps you paced well and keeps you intrigued. All around excellence. Good acting, story, music and sound effects. Good job.
