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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Disappointed "

    I've read many / almost all of Brad Thor's work and while in any books of this genre you need to ignore the significant incorporation of actions which defy belief that was not the problem with the Athena Project. Of course the usual suspending belief was there.

    The problem was with the endless petty dialogue between the heroines about romance or lack of it, men or lack of them, their mutual fan club for each other's good looks, etc.

    These are supposed to be an elite hit squad on a mission to save life as we know it, but still the corny female gossip and chit chat can't take a break.

    l stuck with it but definitely would not recommend it.

    Story
    "who wrote this?"
    What would have made The Athena Project better?

    the story is absolutely beyond reason. Action sections very unrealistic. My wife would find it degrading to women. I have read many of his books and this is by far the worst. It must have been a filler and after thought for the series. Now I am not sure about reading the remaining books.


    What could Brad Thor have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stayed with the series.


    Any additional comments?

    Story reads like a comic book of super Herod. I don not know what happened as I have enjoyed his other books.

    "Charlies angels"

    Brad Thor has been better. This was a bit like Charlies Angels on steroids. The story seemed fragmented.
