Ages 13+
A holy war. An ancient scroll lost in history... until now.

During a dig in Morocco, archaeologist Annja Creed and her companions are nearly buried alive when the khettara ceiling collapses, revealing a 1,300-year-old corpse. But when Bedouin bandits raid the camp, Annja barely escapes with her life...and half of a scroll in ancient Kufic script. Her companions'' survival now depends on her.

The scroll dates back to 656 AD, when Muslim raised sword against Muslim and the assassination of the third caliph left no clear heir to Muhammad''s teachings. It''s a coveted find. Annja quickly finds herself caught between a devious terrorist whose family honor depends on destroying what she possesses and a ruthless CIA team. Both believe the end justifies the means. And that Annja cannot allow.

The Third Caliph by Chris (Posted on 10/19/2017)
a conflict and a separation in the faith caused by greed and a desire for power. It’s the same thing today when Almodarresi confronts Thabit about his operations. This story is an elaborate set-up with lots of layers, just so the CIA can get the bad guys. I do love how surprised MacKenzie is with Annja when they get into their first kerfuffle.

I can feel Annja’s pain when the raiders rip artifacts out of the ground. It’s never been about the monetary value of what she finds, but always about what those artifacts and where they are found in the ground that can reveal the secrets about their past.

I found it disconcerting that when Annja finally gets to a phone and gets through to Doug that she never once mentions the Bedouin. Although Doug’s obsession with the skeleton being a zombie cracked me up. He is such a kid with a need for the sensational.

It’s black ops action, tagine and baklava, along with history and Moroccan culture. Rescues, chases, and ambushes galore --- wait’ll you get to Fes. I swear the population must have doubled with all the different covert ops teams in town! I don’t blame Annja for not trusting either side! The sound of that vampire club in Berlin was pretty interesting as well.

We finally get even more of Garin’s back history. Good addition.

Great story! lots on action with history intertwined in the story. Only problem was the music and voices. Sometime the voices were so soft and the music too loud. Looking forward to more Annja adventures.
Action, Action, Stumble? by Daniel (Posted on 7/31/2015)
Not one of my favorites when compared to some of the others. I liked the history and information and the action was well done but I feel like the story over all wasn't as great. I feel like there was something off and it didn't have that drive as some of the others did. Annja has balls I will give her that; but it felt weird at moments.

I like that it had a little of story telling before so you know what history you are stepping into

So far, this is my favorite R.A. Keep up the good work Graphic Audio.
Review by Johnny Tai (Posted on 8/19/2013)
The story is quite nice- educational- maybe a bit too much so some time, and still have some good action moments. Anja seems ridiculously good at commando work though- the way she handles her self in gun battles should earn her a spot on stoney men :) The best scene is Garan's fight in the nightclub IMO. At times the music used don't seem to fit the mood of the story, and there are minor production glitches here and there. And...maybe I missed it somehow, but what happened to the MI6 faction?
Review by Wayne Noble (Posted on 7/12/2013)
This was a very good story line. The only thing is it seemed the production was a little off. The voices it seemed kept getting louder and softer and at one time the narration just cut and starting it seemed out of sync. Almost like a cut was made by accident. Then some of the sound effects seemed off at times. But otherwise I really liked the flow of the story and how it ended. I don't know who the real author of this one was but I would say it was either Mel Odom or Joseph Nassise. Both are great and it seemed more along their lines. Thanks Graphic Audio. Keep the Rogue Angels coming I'll buy all you put out. I really like these stories.
