Wow! GraphicAudio delivers a fast-paced, mind-boggling audio adventure in Rogue Angel: Destiny, the first of many in the Rogue Angel series written by Alex Archer. Developing a “movie for the mind” through audio animation, the nonstop action in Rogue Angel: Destiny is a great fit for this concept.
Annja Creed plans a short trip to France to produce a short story on La Bete, the Beast of Gevaudan, a terrifying legendary creature rumored to have killed many between 1764 and 1767. An archeologist and explorer by trade, she takes on assignments such as these for the television show “Chasing History’s Monsters” to earn extra cash to support her true archeological passion.
Not long after she arrives in the small town of Lozere, Annja realizes she is being followed. A few martial arts moves and two knocked-out victims, later she quickly makes for the legendary mountain to research her story and then get out of town fast. This, however, is not to be as she meets with more trouble on the mountain. Rather than cut her losses and run from the trouble, Annja feels a pull that brings her farther up the mountain, facing tumbling rocks and shaking ground. Suddenly the earth opens up and she finds herself in a cave. What she finds there sends her on a mysterious adventure that includes many more dangerous pursuers, two 500-year-old men, and a fantastical link to Joan of Arc.
Rogue Angel: Destiny is a fast-paced adventure of historical legends, metaphysical mayhem, martial arts, and much more. This is a highly recommended listen for all those who love fast-paced adventure. It is not for the faint of heart, however, as the audio animation effectively brings the blood and gore of bullets and knives to life in the mind. For those, like I, who end up hooked and highly disappointed to see this quest end, there is good news as this is merely the beginning of a long line of adventures featuring the Rogue Angel.
