Publisher Description

The world’s most elite counterterrorism unit has just taken its game to an entirely new level. And not a moment too soon . . .

From behind the rows of razor wire, a new breed of counterterrorism operator has emerged. 

Just as skilled, just as fearsome, and just as deadly as their colleagues, Delta Force’s newest members have only one thing setting them apart—their gender. Part of a top-secret, all-female program codenamed The Athena Project, four of Delta’s best and brightest women are about to undertake one of the nation’s deadliest assignments. 

When a terrorist attack in Rome kills more than twenty Americans, Athena Team members Gretchen Casey, Julie Ericsson, Megan Rhodes, and Alex Cooper are tasked with hunting down the Venetian arms dealer responsible for providing the explosives. But there is more to the story than anyone knows. 

In the jungles of South America, a young U.S. intelligence officer has made a grisly discovery. Surrounded by monoliths covered with Runic symbols, one of America’s greatest fears appears to have come true. Simultaneously in Colorado, a foreign spy is close to penetrating the mysterious secret the U.S. government has hidden beneath Denver International Airport. 

As Casey, Ericsson, Rhodes, and Cooper close in on their target, they will soon learn that another attack—one of unimaginable proportions—has already been set in motion, and the greatest threat they face may be the secrets kept by their own government.

Ok book

That's it, just an ok book. I've read all of Brad Thor's books and I'd rank this one at the bottom of his works. The fact that the shooters here were a team of women didn't bother me though I was hoping for more of Scott Harvath. Just seemed like a cookie cutter type of book. Interesting and boring at the same time. If you like Brad Thor's books you'll like this one but at the end you'll wish there was more to it.

Athena Project

Cliched plot, thin characters, absurd dialog. A waste of time and money.

Really good storyline. Well put together and the side story was a good twist I wasn’t expecting. The main story was a little stagnant and the playful banter between the women was often annoying and not as serious as I would have liked given the exclusivity of the Athena Team. Side story was good, but kind of pointless to add in there. I would have liked more from the main storyline versus story B, but the book overall kept me intrigued! Not great, but it definitely was a good one and it was very interesting!
