      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not the best in series and not recommending

      Secret of the Slaves is the eight book in the Rogue Angel series written by pen author Alex Archer.
      The series follows an archeologist named Annja Creed.

      Annja carries a magical sword around with her that she can summon at her command.
      Annja Creed works for a television series called Chasing Monsters.

      Each book is an individual and has Annja trying to find some kind of Artifact.
      Plot

      Secret of the Slaves starts off when a man named Henrique da Silva and several other mercenaries are trying to claim some land in the amazon. They are ill prepared for what is coming for them when they get attacked by locals and some strange Mythical beasts.
      Annja Creed is hired by a famous musician to find a lost city in Brazil called Promise. In this city there is said to be the secret to agelessness, eternal youth and good health. Surrounding the city are deadly creatures as well as deadly mythical cats.

      Characters
      Sir Iain Morgan

      Sir Iain Morgan was once a famous rock star and now is retired. His character helps with funding to Brazil.
      Henrique Da Saliva

      Is the head of a group of mercenaries and his character is like the evil villain set on taking over the world and adding more money to his wealth. Unlike previous bad guys he prefers for his employee's to do the bulk of the work for him instead of doing it himself. He cares nothing for nature unless it adds to his wealth.
      Opinion

      I felt very disappointed by this book and it had such a good beginning. Annja Creed's character seems to be a bit lonelier and less independent. From reading the other books in the series this seems very out of character.
      I really felt as though the story was draw out and that's why I am not recommending this book.

      Out of all the books in the series I found this book to be the least interesting. There was never a moment I felt as if I could not stop reading.
      This book could have had more potential dealing with something like the fountain of youth.

      I won't be recommending this book to you. Other books in the series have been better and this was not enough to put me off the series.
