An ancient order tied to the Vatican . . . A blood fortune buried in the caves of France . . . A conspiracy of power, greed and darkest evil . . . Archaeologist and explorer Annja Creed's fascination with the myths and mysteries of the past leads her to a crypt in the caves of France, where the terrifying legend of the Beast of Gevaudin hints at the unimaginable. What she discovers is shattering: an artifact that will seal her destiny: a brotherhood of monks willing to murder to protect their secret; and a powerful black-market occultist desperate to put his own claim to centuries-old blood money. Annja embarks on a high-tension race across Europe and history itself, intent on linking the unholy treachery of the ages with the staggering revelations of the present. But she must survive the shadow figures determined to silence her threat to their existence.

Annja finds an artifact, is hunted by bad guys, kidnapped yada ...
I wish I could give this book 3.5 stars because I have two problems with it: One - the fight scenes are way too detailed for me. Not too graphic, just too technical with how she positions her feet, holds her hand and shoulders while striking, moves her head, repositions her feet, adapts a certain f...
This book came out in 2006 and I just discovered the series thanks to Goodreads. Archaeologist, explorer and field reporter for cable TV's Chasing History's Monsters, Annja Creed is on the hunt for a mythical creature La Bete, the Beast of Gevaudan. What she finds along the way; an artifact that wil...
I really wanted to love this book/series but the dialogue was so painfully lame, I couldn't finish. It has a Tomb Raider sort-of feel to the premise but again, the writing was so so bad it was unreadable.
