About The Rogue Angel Series Of Books:

Since 2006, the Rogue Angel Series of books are published every two months. The Rogue Angel Series began in 2006 and is published by Harlequin Publishing. Additionally, the book is written under the pseudonym Alex Archer; however, many authors have contributed novels to the series. Despite “Alex Archer” being name given to the author’s of the series, individuals are given credit for their writing with notations inside the book; however, only the house name is printed on the jacket and spine of the book. While it is possible to read the books as individual stories, it is advised that the series is read as a continuation of each novel. The author’s work together to ensure that there is character development and that sub-plots continue from book to book. The author’s do an excellent job of ensuring that the series, despite being written by many writers, flows from novel to novel. While readers are able to distinguish between different writing styles the ideas, characters and plot lines evolve from one book to the next.

Each novel in the Rogue Angel Series is named for either a historical or fabled artifact that the plot then centers on. While the plot structure does vary from book to book, most volumes tend to follow the same sequence: The protagonist finds the artifact, but before they can determine its significance the item is stolen by an antiheroine. In almost every novel, the item stolen is believed to possess supernatural and magical powers that make it exceptionally valuable and powerful. As the story progresses, the novel follows the protagonist as s/he learns more about the object and the historical period that it dates to.

The Rogue Angel Series was years in the making as it took several attempts before it was published. First imagined by a Harlequin executive named Randall Toye, the series was inspired by the story of Joan of Arc. Harlequin Publishing is a Toronto-based printing company that produces primarily romance, science-fiction and women’s fiction novels. The majority of their sales come from outside of Canada. Wanting to create a modern day version of Joan, Toye enlisted the help of action-adventure professionals to assist in editing the novels. While series’ first 8 books were penned by Victor Milan and Mel Odom, additional authors include Michele Hauf, Jean Rabe, Jon Merz andJoseph Nassise. The novels bare resemblance to popular science-fiction and action adventure series like the comic book Witchblade and the movie franchise Tomb Raider.

The main heroine in the Rogue Angel Series is Annja Creed. As an archaeologist, Annja travels the world searching for ancient cities, mysterious puzzles and cryptic codes that are unknown to modern day historians. As the recipient of Joan of Arc’s magical sword, Creed continuously finds herself pitted against villains as lives hang in the balance. Creed’s love of history was formulated as a child that was raised in an orphanage and who did not know her family’s heritage. Combined with her intelligence and athleticism, Creed earned a scholarship to college where she studied archaeology. With her degree in hand, Creed gained fame as a guest on the Letterman Show. With her charming smile and beautiful looks, Creed was quickly offered a job hosting a television show that chronicles vampires, murderers and mythological creatures. As the host, Creed travels around the world searching for a glimpse into the darker side of our world’s history. No matter where she goes, trouble always seems to follow Creed and her adventures are written about in each novel.

In every novel, Anja Creed is accompanied by her trusty sidekick: the sword. In the story of Joan Arc, her sword was destroyed after she was executed for heresy. In a curse to avenge her death, the pieces of the sword were buried throughout the world. Ultimately, Creed searches the globe for the sword’s pieces and is able to reconstruct the weapon. This powerful weapon grants Creed many powers that are explained and utilized throughout the Rogue Angel Series.

In addition to Anja Creed, the Rogue Angel Series is accompanied by the character Roux. Although he does not appear in every novel, Roux is an elderly gentleman who although he looks like he is in sixties has actually been alive for more than five hundred years. Roux serves as a mentor to Annja; however, because he wishes her to remain independent and powerful he stops short of being her father figure. Because of his longevity on Earth, Annja likes to interview Roux to gain insight on the historical events that he has witnessed. When not helping Annja, Roux’s goal is to find objects with magical powers and hide them from the rest of the world so that they cannot be used. An important theme that develops between Annja and Roux is that although Roux is a mentor to Creed he always puts his needs before hers.

Assisting Roux is his apprentice Garin Braden. Similar to Anja, Garin grew up without a father figure after he was given to Roux by his biological father as a child. The mythical powers of the sword have afforded Garin the opportunity to live for over 500 years despite remaining trim, athletic and handsome. In the early books, Garin and Annja have a contemptuous relationship as the two fight for the undivided attention of Roux. However, as the novels progress the rivalry dissipates and the two start to form a mutual respect.

Although not a character in every novel, Doug Morrell is the producer of Annja’s television show. In short, Morrell cares nothing about history and for him, the show is all about making money and maintaining the high ratings. Despite having a solid relationship withAnnja, Morrell is slightly immature and gets his way by persuading Annja to do whatever he wants.

In the first novel of the Rogue Angel Series, Destiny, Annja Creed finds herself in the caves of France searching for an artifact that has the power to change the course of history. However, before she can take possession of the object her life is put at risk by a brotherhood of monks who will kill to protect their secret. As she races across Europe, Annja must protect herself from the monks in order to preserve history. Written in 2006, the novel became an instant success and catapulted the series to the bestseller lists.

As the Rogue Angel Series continues, Annja Creed and her cast of trusty sidekicks find themselves fending off demons throughout the world. No matter where she ends up, Creed’s goal is to uncover ancient artifacts that have major implications on the present day world. Despite finding herself in tricky situations, Creed is always able to escape in the narrowest of margins.
