Title: The Lost Scrolls
Series: Rogue Angel
Author: Alex Archer
Rating: 2 of 5 Stars
Genre: Thriller/Urban Fantasy
Annja is on a digsite helping out a group that is trying to discover some information about Atlantis when a para-military group descends upon the camp, kills almost everyone and takes all the scrolls they can.
Annja is stuck with a whiny, immature, genius of a girl and together they must figure out who is after them and what is so important about the scrolls in their possession.
This started out ok, but about 3 or 4 pages in, we meet the most horrible girl ever. I don’t remember her name now, but she was the epitome of a stuck up, arrogant, immature, selfish genius. I hated her.
And Annja had to deal with her through the entire book and that ruined this book for me. The story, about losts scrolls that might lead to more info about Atlantis and super-civilization, could have been pretty good. You get a lot of action and a cool battle scene on an oil rig, but the pretentious prig ruined it for me.
I didn’t understand why Annja kept helping her out, or being nice to her or anything. The brat was in her 20’s, able to take care of herself and smart enough to know better. But she acted like she was 12 or 14 the whole time.
I hate it when a side character makes such a big impact that it completely affects my enjoyment of the book overall.
