Excellent, edge of your seat read,
This review is from: The Spider Stone (Rogue Angel) (Mass Market Paperback)
Okay, so if you've been following reviews of other Alex Archer Rogue Angel books, you will see that the fact that there are actually multiple authors under this pseudonym is widely discussed - when you sit down to read the books, you'll know that it's true.
I started by reading Destiny (Rogue Angel bk 1) - such a fabulously fun book that it is on my keeper shelf. It was well written and the character of Annja Creed became one of my favorite fiction characters. Then I moved on to read the second book in the series and immediately knew it had been written by someone else. It wasn't written as well and, though it was a great edge of your seat read, it just didn't measure up to the writing in the first book. Also, Annja's character was not as likeable or as noble as the Annja in the first book in the series.
Now I have finished the 3rd book in the series - The Spider Stone. I could tell immediately that this book had been written by the original author of Destiny. The original Annja character was back - and just as likeable as the original.
This story begins in the southern United States where Annja has been asked to come in and assist in a dig at a site that was once a part of the underground railroad. The dig nets a stone - the Spider Stone - with elaborate carvings on it. This leads Annja and her fellow archeologist to Africa to investigate the stone's origins. I don't want to say much more as it might spoil the story by giving too much away.
This book was well written and very well plotted. It kept me on the edge of my seat until it's thrilling conclusion. I highly recommend it.
