Very nice return to form for the series Consistency of characters, compelling plot, one f my favorites of the series.
Been awhile since I read any Rogue Angel books Since, I couldn t find any of the earlier books Very good.
5 stars This was a good book I like the new author that wrote this one Hope his others turn out just as good.
Annja is filming a segment about the opening of what might be the tomb of Beowulf, or at least the king who might have inspired the legend The dig is enabled, though, but a politician running for office on an anti immigrant platform, and has other plans for the dig Mainly, he is looking for Beowulf s sword, which he can use to get to power But when the sword is actually found, he gets a than he expected.
I quite enjoyed this installment The only plot hole is that she couldn t get a hold of Roux, and when Garin arrives conveniently in time to rescue her from a fire in an isolated area he mentions that Roux actually was in town, but laying low and just observing Whether he s lying or telling the truth is uncertain, but there s no reference to Roux again I get the feeling that the author started to write him in, changed his mind, and couldn t be bothered or didn t have the time to do an edit to take the references out.
This adventure revolves around the legend of Beowulf and his sword There was lots of background aka history revealed about the legends of Beowulf that I had never heard before This was one of the better mixes of history and adventure I really enjoyed it.
The only issue I had was that for being an assassin, he was pretty easy to kill Plus, here never was a good reason for why Roux did not help Anja Garin came out of nowhere as if by magic, and just in the nick of time It was just a little too convenient Especially since it is out of character for Garin to do anything just because Roux told him to.
