    One thought on “Clockwork Doomsday”

    1. Clockwork Doomsday finally reversed a common trend in the series, and it made me perk up. So many of the books had Annja getting into a jam, and either Garen or Roux (or both) come running to help her out.In this volume, Garen gets into trouble with a family of villainous salvage divers over a clockwork antique from ancient Greece. He calls Roux, who is also a target because of past events. And they end up calling Annja, who drops everything to come running to *their* rescue.So, Annja to the res [...]

    2. ClockworkAnother interesting story of creed . . . Good to see Roux and Garin actually working together and not trying to kill each other. Always love the history of things that actually happened. Till the next one

    3. Another episode in the Rogue Angel series featuring archeologist Annja Creed and her two mentors, Garin and Roux. I chose to read this based on a review of another GoodReads member who said it featured a change between the three characters. I agree with that assessment more or less, i.e. in this the 43rd installment of the series, protagonist Annja Creed does come to the aid of both Garin and Roux but she puts herself in danger by doing so and it isn't much of a reversal of roles for the 3 of th [...]

    4. Annja Creed, who wields Joan of Arc's sword and is very reminiscent of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft and especially Sarah Pezzini, appears every other month or so in a new Rogue Angel adventure. It's a very formulaic series, like television adventure series used to be, with everything at the end having to be re-set to the way it was at the beginning. They're usually light, fun, books, good for a couple of hours of relaxation. Predictably, some of them aren't very good, but every once in a while t [...]

    5. The only thing holding me back from giving this one 5 stars is the prologue. It totally makes the clockwork items appear to be way more deadly. What happens later totally does not match the same scale of what happened in the prologue. Besides, I don't recall what they did with the "powerful" item. Loose ends totally NOT tied up as far as I can see. If I missed it, then let me know. It may be enough to get me to change my review.

    6. I liked it because Roux and Garin are alot more prominent in this book then in most of the seriesIt was a nice changeIt kinda of raised more questions then it gave answers thoughHence the 4 star rating instead of 5Still it was a good read that gripped me and I honestly didn't put it down til it was done
