Okay, I'll start out by saying that I absolutely loved DESTINY. I read it last week and enjoyed every page, couldn't wait to get to the end because I just had to know what was going to happen next.

This one's the second book in the series. It starts out knee-deep in action and bad guys, and pretty much keeps going like that until the end. Roux wasn't in it as much as I would've liked him to be. And neither was Garin - though he gets a mention, which was definitely worth reading about!

Anyway, Annja's heard rumours about the discovery of Solomon's Jar, which supposedly holds captive the demons King Solomon bound to build his temple. It's right up her alley and the search takes her all over the world, facing bad people wherever she goes. There's also a London-based cult, the Russian mafiya, a celebrity guru and even a love interest for Annja.

The story is once again interesting, as it weaves all over the place until you're kept wondering if the demons will make an appearance... I especially liked Tsipporah and her interaction with Annja. I sure hope she pops up in future books. And although, overall it wasn't as good as the first one, it's still a good adventure book. Annja's still a likeable character, as she slowly starts to accept her fight for good.

I'm looking forward to the next one, The Spider Stone.
