Rogue Angel

5 Hours
978-1-59950-961-7
Ages 13+
It was the kind of internet posting guaranteed to attract the attention of the American cable TV show Chasing History''s Monsters: "Dog-headed men sighted by tourists in Avignon." Drawn to France to explore the myth of Saint Christopher and the cynocephalus, or the dog-headed, archaeologist and television host Annja Creed finds herself repeatedly and inexplicably targeted by vicious mercenaries. Her best defense is to trace this brutal violence back to its source, which she soon discovers to be a millionaire and self-professed descendant of King Charlemagne.

Caught up in a romantic and ruthless sixth-century world, the man is convinced that if he collects mankind''s most precious and holy swords, he can fulfill his medieval ancestor''s failed goal to build the City of God. And he''s stealing the priceless relics one by one to arm his modern-day paladins. Now he has his eye on a very special sword-Annja''s.

And he''ll have to kill her to get it.

Reviews

City of Swords by Chris (Posted on 10/19/2017)
It's better than the last one, Matador's Crown.

Annja is still behaving rather ignorant, believing that she's unbeatable. And she doesn't seem capable of learning since she keeps going back and pulling more stupid stunts.

It's intriguing the way Archer leads us in about Archard. I'm wondering if he's like Roux. Archer further enticed me along by dropping partial hints until I was hooked into wanting to know the why and what of their thieving.

"Bitzer". I like it. Archer uses it to describe a particular type of dog: bits of this and bits of that.

Some knowledge had to have come to Lawton for him to set the Romanies on Annja in the first place; it's too bad Archer doesn't see fit to let us in on it.
City of Swords by Bonnie (Posted on 8/7/2017)
The story was good. There were a few mistakes along the way like Annja released the sword and then a minute later hit someone with it. The ending was very disappointing. Not as finalizing as other books.
Rogue Angel : City of Swords by Michael (Posted on 2/17/2017)
A city of swords or a city of God? Why Ms. Creed keeps returning to France expecting a different outcome is beyond me. She needs to fly direct to Paris, visit the Roux estate and forget the rest of the country. The place is just bad luck… The cover of this audio book is one of my favorite form the series. Perhaps it’s just the fact that Ms. Creed wears a very masculine Timex G-Shock? I don’t read the paperbacks so I can’t mentally fill in the gaps; so when Ms. Creed’s laptop is stolen and then she somehow has “her laptop” back without explanation…I got confused. Not sure if this was Author’s oversight or a Graphic Audio editing goof, but don’t let it trip you up. The rest of the adventure is worth the listen. I have to say that Ms. Allison Thomas and Mr. Chris Rohan did a very good job on this work. Kudos.
Sword Madness by Sharon (Posted on 9/30/2016)
I think this one showed another human side to Annja Creed; where she kind of felt like picking a fight, but it also showed poetic justice in that while she did okay, she got her butt kicked as well. I sometimes don't understand how the men in these stories easily fight with a woman; but Annja is not just ANY woman; which is why I like reading about her. I didn't particularly like the ending; but it did leave the door open for something to come. It is worth listening!
Too many wrong things by Daniel (Posted on 9/18/2015)
This story was awful. I really hate to do this but I really wasn't impressed. I don't understand her motive for fighting at the start. There were really too many moments in the story that wrong like her laptop was stolen and roux gave it to her, she sent her sword away and then she had it (no SFX to summon it or anything) The music was off at moments and sometimes interfered with the story. And the weird voice echo they did was bizarre.

I am frustrated in that if people are going after her sword that her first thought wasn't Garin and to call and yell at him about trying to get her sword. And Roux or Garin, at the very least, would make sure that the sword and Annja wouldn't be found out on any from of media or a dark net.

I didn't enjoy the nutter-butter crazy killings I feel like this was one of those authors that didn't really understand Annja Creed and her character. Plus the crazy girl and her voices. The action was okay but I didn't see how it was necessary to do a roof top fight with her in pajamas. Not one of my favorites.
City of swords by robert (Posted on 6/11/2014)
This was good but still does not explain much about Anna's sword I was hoping to get more history on how it was made. Witch might explain more of its power
Review by Johnny Tai (Posted on 5/23/2013)
A very good one out of the Rogue Angel series, this one is full of swordfights, historical lessons and mysterious actions.

The end is a bit rushed, like the author just got tired of it and decided to end it in two lines, but other than that, it is definitely a good read- and our favorite heroine actually got her behind kicked a few times in this one.

My favorite character was Sarah, her and the voices in her head made a convincing and deadly and very creepy foe.
Review by Wayne Noble (Posted on 5/23/2013)
This story didn't hold my attention like some of the others. I never quite got the reason for collecting the swords. As I write this review I'm trying to think about what the story was really about and can't quite remember thats how unattached I was while I listened to this. I really like Rogue Angels and will continue to buy them as they create them. Maybe I was just disconnected because I had listened to Elmer Keltons for a while before changing and wasn't focused. But none the less it was a rogue angel and that's worth 3 stars.
