"This woman-centered spy series is as fast-paced and engaging as the first. Jessie continues to confront the universality of patriarchal norms, misogyny, and oppressive treatment of women worldwide. A badass, action-packed, feminist page-turner." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Sarif throws readers back into the action-packed world of Athena that keeps readers turning pages. With female spies, arch enemies, and quick pacing, this book will be a hit with anyone. Jessie, Caitlin, and Hala are reminiscent of Charlie's Angels without Charlie in the speaker box." -- School Library Journal

"This book is full of twists and turns as well as tons of action, investigation, and awesome spy-related thrills. A solid and engaging sequel, The Shadow Mission is a great action/suspense read with strong female characters and high-octane crime solving." -- YA Books Central

PRAISE FOR The Athena Protocol: “Imagine if Mission: Impossible were run by young, brilliant, ultra-skilled female operatives who undertook rogue operations to save the women and girls of the world from kidnappers and traffickers. Shamim Sarif has written a ferocious, take-no-prisoners thriller that actually thrills, with a deep heart and characters you'll adore. What a wonderful and exciting new voice in YA. More please!” -- Patrick Ness, New York Times bestselling author of The Rest of Us Just Live Here and A Monster Calls

“Finally! The female version of James Bond we've been waiting for! Only better--this team of black-ops spies exclusively kick ass and take the names of those who prey on women and girls: warlords and human traffickers. With a diverse cast of heroes and villains, a global scope, and just a hint of romance, it makes taking down the patriarchy fun.” -- Natalie C. Anderson, author of City of Saints and Thieves

“Riveting, with thrillingly representative female empowerment.” -- Kirkus Reviews

“An inclusive cast, ample action, and escalating stakes. Jessie's conflicted attraction rings true, and a gratifying conclusion hints at emotional complexities to come.” -- Publishers Weekly

"Lots of edge-of-your-seat moments. A perfectly paced plot and girls with brains and Mission Impossible." -- School Library Journal

“Led by and centered on women, this high-octane thriller features a well-developed cast with distinct, varied backgrounds. An explosively exciting story that shines a light on the treatment, mistreatment, and unity of women across the globe.” -- ALA Booklist
