The Athena Project by Brad Thor


The Athena Project by Brad Thor
Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews.

The forces of counterterrorism never rest in this new full-throttle Brad Thor thriller. The Athena Project engraved in the title is the code name for the training of an elite team of multi-skilled female warriors recruited from world champion athletes. Once deployed, these superlatively conditioned operatives will pursue missions even more dangerous than impossible. Covert action; military intrigue; reader excitement.

When I heard about a book that stars an elite all female delta force team I was very excited. I love reading books about strong women that can kick some ass and hold their own. It’s a thing I think we need more of in the literary world.
This is the first book by Brad Thor that I have read, and I must say, I am now hooked! I will be looking for more of his titles on my next trip to the book store.

This was such an intriguing and thrilling ride! Full of action, mystery, suspense and wit. The women are all very strong and not someone I would want to cross! This is a difficult book to review without any spoilers.

TAP (The Athena Project) is the code named given to the women.

The book begins in a “flash back” to 1944 in Europe. When it flashes forward to the present day, the TAP members end up traveling to South America, where they uncover secrets from World War two.

I loved Thor’s writing style and how all his characters are connected. He has excellent dialog and the character development is flawless. Each of his TAP members are very different in their personalities, I never felt as if they were carbon copies of one another.

The way gives the reader just a little bit of information here and there is like a bread trail all the way to the end of the book. I was always on the edge of my seat with this book waiting to see what was going to happen next. This is one of the best books I have read this year. I highly recommend it!
