Paperback  ✓ Fury's Goddess Kindle Ê Ugh I d rather they take longer between books and really work out the story My allegiance to Annja is starting to wane.

around the world and have a big loft in New York City working on an episode of her television show, Chasing History s Monsters.Something is killing people in a new subdivision of Hyderabad, India Is it a rogue tiger Or something worse Annja, along with a young, libido driven cameraman, are off to see if it s a monster What they find are thuggees followers of Kali, goddess of destruction under the orders of the richest man in the area But even that is not quite what it seems Plus, there s the handsome cop who may or may not be working for the villain.On the whole, the story was enjoyable, but in the middle I ran straight into a major annoyance, right out of a James Bond movie I m sorry, but Duranj hasn t read the Evil Overlord rules, since he ties Annja up, puts her on a slow conveyer belt to a rock grinder, and then he walks out of sight so that she can get away Any villain that stupid does not deserve to win I mean seriously, it was a bad case of having a character do something incredibly stupid in order to advance the plot.But besides that one large boulder of a plot hole, it was a fun read Certainly, there s been worse in series 3 stars.All I can say is that I wouldn t want to be Annja s cameraman Thirty fifth in the Rogue Angel urban fantasy series revolving around Annja Creed, archeologist and TV show host.My TakeRight off the bat, this just doesn t sound right A cop who meets Annja at the airport and asks for her help with this investigation I don t think so Sure, if he had any idea who Annja really was and how very capable she is he might want to pick her brain or, god forbid, ask for her help under the table But to come right out with it No.What s with Pradesh s comment about Thirty fifth in the Rogue Angel urban fantasy series revolving around Annja Creed, archeologist and TV show host.My TakeRight off the bat, this just doesn t sound right A cop who meets Annja at the airport and asks for her help with this investigation I don t think so Sure, if he had any idea who Annja really was and how very capable she is he might want to pick her brain or, god forbid, ask for her help under the table But to come right out with it No.What s with Pradesh s comment about one of them Frank or Annja being less than culturally perceptive I have to assume he s referring to Frank because Annja is a complete one eighty from that remark Then there s Pradesh s comments about attending these sort of lavish parties and his comfort level with them An inspector A lowly inspector I don t think so Why isn t any of these raising warning signs for Annja Why would Dunraj want Annja to take time out to explore the tourist attractions of the city when there s a man eating tiger on the loose Oh, please, no one suspects him when he gets into the ambulance Annja just allows him to change her IV bag What drugs is this girl on This just reads as though someone else is writing this While I enjoyed the repartee between Annja and Dunraj, the way she keeps getting caught and her mounting inabilities to grasp the sword just don t feel right Doesn t feel like an Annja story.This was a mish mash of clever back and forth and half assed concepts It s definitely a Saturday afternoon at the movies kind of series, but this one just doesn t work for me with its convoluted plans within plans Tow the line Seriously The StoryA man eating tiger is on the loose on the outskirts of Hyderabad, India and Doug thinks the mysterious reports about it are right up the show s alley When Annja and Frank show up at the airport, things start getting funky Starting with a policeman picking them up he ll be babysitting followed by a lavish party thrown for Annja by the most eligible bachelor in Hyderabad.It s Frank who really gets the ball moving No sooner are they back at the hotel, than Frank is pushing for the two of them to get out there and explore Without the restraining hand of Hyderabad s finest Sure, the lack of cop opens up a source, but it also opens up a trap that creates so manyproblems think of an onion with all its layers waiting to be peeled away Only Annja is peeling with her mind as well as her sword.The CharactersAnnja Creed is an archeologist with a reverence for the past She s also the wielder of Joan of Arc s re assembled sword with a mandate to protect The young and horny Frank Desalvo is her current cameraman for the television show she co hosts, Chasing History s Monsters Doug Morrell is the producer for the show and actslike a hyped up twenty year old.Inspector Ajay Pradesh is with the Hyderabad City Police Special Investigations Unit and in charge of the case from his particular end A very particular one Dunraj is a billionaire, very eligible, and a mover and shaker in Hyderabad He s also fascinated by Annja.Kormi is one of the Thuggees albeit one who seems upset with the current direction of their worship Anup is the leader of the Tamil Tigers The CoverThe cover is the Rogue Angel yellows and browns with Annja wearing black cargo pants and a toasty brown tank top, her hair blowing as she steps forward in a battle stance, her sword gripped in both hands and raised over one shoulder Kali rises up behind her with the stone wall of the mountain behind her.The title is all about Annja In her role as Fury s Goddess striking down the unrighteous I wasn t very sure what I was in for with this book I d seen the series before and knew it was published by Harlequin I knew it was different from their series romances, which I don t really enjoy, but wasn t sure that I d like this one either I was surprised and pleased by this book, though The main character throughout the series is a TV reporter host for an unexplained mysteries program She s a sort of cross between Lara Croft and Indiana Jones This book took place in southern India It I wasn t very sure what I was in for with this book I d seen the series before and knew it was published by Harlequin I knew it was

series is a TV reporter host for an unexplained mysteries program She s a sort of cross between Lara Croft and Indiana Jones This book took place in southern India It had a lot of action, a nice feel of setting, and was a very fast read It wasn t deep, but it was definitely fun and exciting This one was ok Little predictable I do get tired of her the main character being such a needy little thing One would think that as much martial arts training as she s had and the length of time owning the sword she d not fall down or get hurt so much But she s always on deaths door and someone comes along to rescue her I want to see her becapable It s Joan of Arc s sword for goodness sake In this one her hands were tied behind her and she had to find outside resources to free the This one was ok Little

tied behind her and she had to find outside resources to free them yet in another book she could summon the sword and have it hang there in the air and then saw her hands free So little disappointed in this adventure It s been stated that Harlequin has a staff of writers who contribute to the series and it is very evident with each book By far Fury s Goddess is the worst book in the series to date and I just couldn t wait to finish to be done with it It lacked any real story line along with some sense of back story that I ve come to love with this series Maybe instead of pushing the bi
