Sure, every covert operation is ran by gorgeous women of the utmost intelligence.
A thrilling page turner, Brad Thor’s Athena Project seems like a complete joke at first. The women of the elite task force are so beautiful, it’s almost comical. But eventually, you understand that beauty will get you almost everything, and these highly trained women are the best at what they do.
A new menacing terror is being unleashed on the world, and the women of the Athena Project are sent to sniff it out. The terror is some part of an unholy scheme discovered and unleashed by the Nazis, one that hurls individuals through time and space and plasters them against the wall of the opposite portal. But this time travelling gadget is being used to hurl bombs on the innocents of the world, and the girls of the Athena Project race against time to save the day.
Having never read a book by Brad Thor, I enjoyed the intrigue, detail and history involved. The girls in the book were likable, and in the end you could imagine that such a group of women could exist and the fate of our world could be in their hands. Just another day at the office.
