Book Review: Rogue Angel: The Dragon’s Mark

Rouge Angel: The Dragon’s Mark

Rogue Angel: The Dragon’s Mark, by “Alex Archer”

Annja Creed is a part-time archeologist, part-time tv host of Chasing History’s Monsters, and full-time adventurer.

In this latest installment of the Rogue Angel series, Annja is targeted by an infamous assassin known only as the Dragon. The Dragon carries a legendary sword, just as Annja does. But instead of fighting for good, the Dragon’s sword carries a blood-thirsty lineage that craves death and destruction. Now, the Dragon is after Annja and her sword, in a true battle in good versus evil.

This story revolves around the history and lore of the Dragon’s dark sword, pitting it as the antithesis of Annja (formerly Joan of Arc’s) sword. It’s a unique and fun premise that I thoroughly enjoyed. Roux and Garin are back again, though at times out of character from previous books. Which is not hard to believe, since this installment is written by another author. But all of the adventure, suspense, and danger are back. The action scenes and building suspense are particularly fun. And the adventure culminates to a truly surprising ending. I hope the series continues in this vein.

  1. I loved this story. I actually skipped the Rogue Angel book I was on to read it. The bad person was very interesting. The ending was good. I couldn’t put the book down.

  2. Thanks for all the kind words! Glad to hear that you enjoyed The Dragon’s Mark and that the adventure, suspense, and danger you expect from Annja’s exploits came through as intended.

  3. To the ones who helped right this one, here’s some constructive criticism.
    I don’t want to consider this novel as part of the series for various reasons:
    1) The personalities of these characters are more than a bit tweaked. They’re completely different from the 20-odd previous novels. The intellect of the main characters is downplayed and the novel focuses more on action (which kept mixing faith into it, something that’s even more out of Annja’s character)
    2) The author(s) deemed it necessary to repeat themselves, explain things to an annoying degree, and recap throughout the novel. It made me feel like the story was written for someone with ADD.

    Note: I tried reading this as a random book I picked up, since I know they’re written to be independent, but it still left me disgruntled. Point 2 became even more evident.

    That’s all I’ll say for now. I’m off to read the next two since I finally got my hands on them.
