Fourteenth in the Rogue Angel urban fantasy series about Annja Creed, archeologist and TV show host with a mystical sword.
This seemed to go off Archer’s usual track. Instead of heading out on her own archeological adventure, Annja’s doing a “job” for Roux to replenish the pot whereas Annja’s previous experiences have been investigations for History’s Monsters or her own scholarly excavations.
Annja has agreed to purloin an artifact for a private party—an action she has always despised and we meet the Elephant Child who is after the same artifact for the same purposes. Naturally, Annja has a swinging good time and helps save the day. Unnaturally, EC manages to survive contrary to what has happened to Annja’s previous cohorts on previous adventures.
