A CK2S K2 Recommended Read!
Annja Creed is working a dig in California to find an old gold mining camp but uncovers the greatest mystery she's faced yet. A discovery of an ancient belt plaque that shouldn't exist sets off an attack, nearly killing Annja. Now she's trying to find the connection these miners had to an ancient legend about Forbidden City of Thieves in the deserts of China.
Annja is off to China, with ally Roux at her side to find the answers. With enemies from all directions, Annja must find the answers before they all end up dead. What does the belt plaque mean and why are one band of assassins and another assassin working alone interested?
While Forbidden City seems to start out a bit slower than other books in the series, don't let that fool you. It picks up pretty quickly and we are on an ever-changing road to answers. We have another brief lull, more like the calm before the storm, later in the book that is giving us a chance to catch our collective breath before taking us forward to the explosive final battle. We also get to meet still more compelling characters in the Rogue Angel saga, one in particular who especially stands out and deserves more attention, hopefully in future books.
Roux and Garen are two favorite characters of mine and I am always disappointed if they don't put in an appearance in the books. Here they not only show up, but have significant roles to play with just heightened my enjoyment of the story. Since they are so highly visible in this story, it's especially exciting to finally get a little bit more background on these two mysterious people. We also have some answers at last to a few questions about their significance in Annja's life now that she has Joan of Arc's sword.
Two of my absolute favorite aspects of the Rogue Angel series are the history and mythology surrounding whatever artifact Annja is searching for or has found. This adds such a different twist to the stories when we can learn, in a fun and aventurous way, all about ancient legends in a variety of cultures and time periods. These tidbits are always fascinating to me and make me wish I knew more about them. The descriptions are so vivid that I could see the desert city in my mind it is was incredible!
I love the Rogue Angel series and Forbidden City is another wonderfully exciting installment in the life and times of Annja Creed, modern crusader. I hope the series continues for a long time to come.

While this story is full of action, there is enough dialogue to hold it together and keep the reader guessing as to what will happen next. While there are a few references to earlier stories in the series, this would be a good start for a first time reader of the series.
This is fun escapist lit. I hope the rest of the series is as much fun as the first 4 books.
Unfortunately, the books don't seem to build on one another aside from the premise of the sword (and even that is explained/summarized in every book to allow readers to jump in at any place in the series), so we'll never really know what tragedy was averted.
Escapist reading... it was enjoyable, just not as much as the others.
