Mission Status Update

Operator has completed mission of reading "The Medusa Prophecy" and is now completing written analysis.


*This was a great book. I loved the premise. I ate this group of female Special Forces soldiers up. I loved their camaraderie, their team spirit, and how they worked hard how to show the boys how it's done. Although I am no soldier myself, I think women soldiers can kick some serious butt and I'm cheerin

SO BAD (still better than Dan Brown).

I know I shouldn't have expected anything else from this genre, and I have only myself to blame for actually reading it. But still. Here is a list of what irked me about the book:
1. It pretends that it's trying to counteract stereotypes about femininity. It does not. Okay, maybe it doesn't pretend too hard, and I can kind of respect it for the sake that it's an unabashed Romance Novel written by a woman who was actually in a similar scenario (involved in the

The fourth in the Medusa Series.

This book is about Python or Karen. The Medusas are matched with the Norwegians up in the snowy area around Oslo. The Norsmen are skeptical of the women until they capture the men. Karen is the only one that actually pins her man and is attracted to him as he is to her.

The two groups are then to find the rest of the group but not until they come across a cabin in the middle of nowhere--resembles a drug lab. And with around 40 kilos of white powder that Karen inge

Great book. I really like this author. I read everything I can get my hands on that she writes!
The first book in the Medusa Project proves to be a great start for the series. I think that the plot of the novel was extremely well thought out and all the characters had time to develop and to come in in scenes as the novel progresses.

Our main character here is Karen Turner and she is part of an elite group of special forces soldiers who are women, wow! They have come to the Artic Circle to take part in survival training and to prove to the Norwegians that they are on the same par as these me

I tried hard to like this, and the cover and setting are gorgeous, but I had two main problems.

The Sami people are described very stereotypically and negatively, as a book written 60 years ago might describe "native savages". I found it racist.

Personal quibble: I am bilingual and aware that wordplay and idioms do not translate across languages.
When you have two characters speaking Norwegian to each other, they are not going to be using American English idioms and wordplay puns. It was very jarri

I was surprised. Put off a bit at first by the semi-paranormal references to Norse mythology, but quickly got hung up on the book. Maybe not great literature, but I really enjoyed the main character (the guy was a bit two dimensional), and could hardly put it down. A fun read.

I've read the later books, finally getting to see it it all started. Loving this series

I would have given this a 4 rating for pace, interest and easy reading style, but the chip on the main character's shoulder was a bit much.
