Mysterious happenings are occurring in New Mexico. Demonic creatures of darkness are killing people, an incarnation of the Divine Child keeps appearing and saving people, Annja keeps having assassins trying to kill her and through it all an old Jesuit killer keeps popping up.
Also the big, bad, terrible United States Military is doing horrible, dark, secret, scary things. Oh my!
Annja, the skeptic, who can pull a sword out of no-where, is physically enhanced, sees a demon with her own eyes, but she says it was just an eagle. This whole “I don’t believe in the supernatural even though I’m part of it now” thing grates. It is “Denial” of the worst kind.
Other than that, this was a pretty enjoyable action urban fantasy. Annja teams up with a dying Jesuit who goes after supernatural baddies and they go after a deranged military guy who is trying to breed hybridized demon/animals. Yeah, weird.
I enjoy reading these, even with the faults. It is a formulaic action story, so if I have to put up with 1 or 2 faults in each story, that’s ok. Not all formula stories can be as awesome as the Mack Bolan series.
