Rogue Angel: God of Thunder by Alex Archer

I received an advance copy of Alex Archer's Rogue Angel: God of Thunder.

Publisher: Gold Eagle (July 10, 2007)
ISBN-10: 0373621256
ISBN-13: 978-0373621255

I have read all of the Rogue Angel books. The premise is that Joan of Arc's sword, which was destroyed the day she died, has been reformed and is now in the possession of an archaeologist, Annja Creed. The sword has some mystical properties and for some reason causes Annja to be a trouble magnet. She is often drawn into fantastic adventures, quite often to right a wrong or bring justice to the downtrodden.

God of Thunder is no different. It is part murder mystery, part action adventure.

Like most good adventures, God of Thunder starts off with a gripping action sequence. Annja is attacked by four men who are masquerading as law enforcement. She immediately is involved with a chase and running gun battle. At first she has no idea why these men are gunning for her.

Then Annja receives a mysterious package from and old friend. Before she can talk to him, he is brutally murdered. She must solve a riddle he friend left behind before she can continue his search for the mythological Thor and his magic hammer, Mjolnir. Along the way, she meets up with a varied cast of characters that all contribute to the story. Her mentor,Roux, and his nemesis, Garin, are thrown into the mix. These books are always more interesting with the two of them involved.

In this book, we see a little deeper into the relationship of Roux and Garin as well as their relationship with Annja. I think that the repercussions from the ending will be interesting to see in the later books.

God of Thunder is one of the better books in the Rogue Angel series. I picked it up and could not put it down, even to sleep (that is until I could not keep my eyes open). It is a book that keeps your attention and makes you want to keep turning the pages. A good read, I recommend it.

This one looks good. It's been awhile since I picked up a Rogue Angel. I'll have to pick this one up.

This series sounds interesting. I'm always attracted to a good read involving some mythological tales. This is something I'll have to check out.
