Publisher's Summary

Tucked away in a remote corner of North Carolina's Fort Bragg, behind rows of razor wire and heavily armed guards, lies the headquarters of the nation's most elite counter-terrorism unit: the United States Army's 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta. Here, a brilliant new approach to combating terrorism has just been born. Its codename: The Athena Project.

The novels will follow an elite team of female warriors from their recruitment as top-level athletes, through their training, to their deployment on some of the most exciting and dangerous international assignments the fiction world has ever seen.

Brad Thor's listeners will be electrified as he employs his vast knowledge of covert operations and military intrigue to bring to life his most heart-pounding, globe-trotting thrillers yet.

    "not one of his better stories."

    this was not a Scot harvath story. That was my own fault for not reading the description before buying it. The beginning is not that great either. The interactions between the women are not terribly believable. However the second half of the book does pick up so it was not a complete loss.

    Story
    "THIS IS NOT A SCOT HARVATH BOOK"
    What disappointed you about The Athena Project?

    I was extremely disappointed that this is not part of the Scot Harvath series. It is the start of the spin off "Athena Team" series that were supporting cast in some of the Scot Harvath novels.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The next up in the Mitch Rapp Series - Kyle Mills for Vince Flynn.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Again, this should not be marketed as a "Scot Harvath" series book. Only mentioning him two to three times throughout does not qualify as a Harvath novel. Don't waste your credit, I don't think the story line ties into the other books bracketing this one.

    "Could Not Finish"

    I just couldn't stand to listen to this narrator. I really enjoy listening to the Brad Thor books but just couldn't finish this one.

    Story
    "A middle school boys fantasy"

    One of, not THE, worst stories I've ever heard. It sounds like a fantasy of a pubescent boy about how women (referred to as GIRLS) are constantly thinking about and teasing each other about sex. This "nonsense" even takes place in the midst of ops. I was really happy when it ended!

    "This was not the usual Scott Harvath book."

    I have enjoyed each of his previous books. Scott Harvath play been extremely small role in this book. I didn't like the narrator's voice and I had trouble following the story. it would have been better to call this the Athena project book number one, not a Scott Harvath novel.

    "Tough to stay awake."

    Horrible narrator. Story bordered on fantasy rather than being the somewhat believable thriller I've come to expect from this series.

    Story
    "Perspective Women working together"

    As I enjoyed the premise of a group of smart, fit women who can kick ass as well as any man, I was dismayed by their constant bantering about "men". In my pass 45 years as a working professional, I do not recall spending so much time taking about men

    "BRAD is the auTHORity"

    A great story. Intriguing and very entertaining. Everything you'd expect in a Scot Harvath novel.

    "NOT BRAD THOR"

    I have been reading the series from the beginning and just finished The Athena Project. I listened to the entire book but never got into the characters or storyline. The readers voice was very boring and I couldn't wait for the book to be over. I rated all the previous books as a 5 star but could not in good conscience rate this higher than a 2.
