I rarely read the same book twice, but I will read more Athena Project books.
Yes! I am a big fan of Brad Thor. He's a great teacher of world politics as the backdrop for exciting stories.
Ms. Marvel keeps the characters distinct, the energy level up, and the story moving. I could listen to her and do other work with my hands without losing track of the story.
Cooper. She was more like the women warriors I've known, less concerned with looks than with her mission. Accepting that manipulating men by looking good is part of the mission is not easy for her.
It's tough for a man to write from a woman's point of view. I applaud Brad Thor for doing it as well as he did, but he does male characters better. He inspired me to think deeply about what ordinary people can do to resist the unsavory changes happening in our culture and government. We all have innate gifts, valuable skillsets and much-needed resources to contribute.
Ive listened to the whole series on audiobook (had to listen to one abridged) and love it! No one could be in all the places at the pivotal moments in history the way the Frasers/Mackenzies are. But, their relationships are inspiring and this is a great way to learn history. Porter's voices and accents bring the characters and their words to life. (I was glad for her help with the Gaelic.)
I'm enjoying the Amelia Peabody series, but this one dragged a bit. Maybe I need to listen to something else for awhile and come back to it. Amelia and Emerson are wonderful characters.
