Read The Lost Sisterhood Online Free - From the author of the New York Times bestseller Juliet comes a mesmerizing novel about a young scholar who risks her reputation—and her life—on a thrilling journey to prove that the legendary warrior women known as the Amazons actually existed.
Oxford lecturer Diana Morgan is an expert on Greek mythology. Her obsession with the Amazons started in childhood when her eccentric grandmother claimed to be one herself—before vanishing without a trace. Diana’s colleagues shake their heads at her Amazon fixation. But then a mysterious, well-financed foundation makes Diana an offer she cannot refuse.
Traveling to North Africa, Diana teams up with Nick Barran, an enigmatic Middle Eastern guide, and begins deciphering an unusual inscription on the wall of a recently unearthed temple. There she discovers the name of the first Amazon queen, Myrina, who crossed the Mediterranean in a heroic attempt to liberate her kidnapped sisters from Greek pirates, only to become embroiled in the most famous conflict of the ancient world—the Trojan War. Taking their cue from the inscription, Diana and Nick set out to find the fabled treasure that Myrina and her Amazon sisters salvaged from the embattled city of Troy so long ago. Diana doesn’t know the nature of the treasure, but she does know that someone is shadowing her, and that Nick has a sinister agenda of his own. With danger lurking at every turn, and unsure of whom to trust, Diana finds herself on a daring and dangerous quest for truth that will forever change her world.
Sweeping from England to North Africa to Greece and the ruins of ancient Troy, and navigating between present and past, The Lost Sisterhood is a breathtaking, passionate adventure of two women on parallel journeys, separated by time, who must fight to keep the lives and legacy of the Amazons from being lost forever.

Anne Fortier clearly aims to be the Dan Brown of 'women's fiction.'
Her protagonist, Diana Morgan, 'feels' very much like The DaVinci Code's Sophie Neveu, and the plot itself bears many similarities, making little references to many of the same things. (How many novels find an excuse to bring up '...

Well, I told you I would only list my five-star books here. So I figure I have to give this one five stars, too, even though it's my own and it may seem a little hubristic.
I can't tell you how excited I am that this new adventure of mine will be on sale in the US and Canada on March 11, 2014. I j...

There’s something about an athletic woman wielding a long bow that really helps me find my stride on the highway. What proved most interesting were the pieces about the Amazons and their sparse history, as THE LOST SISTERHOOD overflowed with Greek mythology. But that was where this tale and I par...

I received an advance copy of this book from Ballantine Books (Random House Publishing Group) via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
THE LOST SISTERHOOD is an entertaining and intriguing story that unfortunately does not always realize its full potential. The parallel story lines about th...

I have a secret... Are you ready?
I hate Romeo and Juliet. I'm not joking, the story annoys me to no end. I didn't even want to read Anne Fortier's debut, but it was the first title on the Goodreads giveaway page when I disco...

Έφτασα στην 400 σελίδα με κόπο αλλά δυστυχώς δεν μπόρεσα να το τελειώσω. Και ενώ είχε ωραία γλώσσα, γραφή και τα λοιπά, η ιστορία ήταν τραβηγμένη από τα μαλλιά, κάτι που συνηθίζει η Fortier στα βιβλία της. Ποτέ δεν είχα πρόβλημα με την αλλαγή των μύθων και της ιστορίας για χάρη της μυθοπλασίας, α...

Πραγματικά είχα καιρό να διαβάσω ένα τόσο κακό βιβλίο! Δεν ξέρω καν από που να ξεκινήσω... Το ότι οι γνώσεις της Anne Fortier για την Ελληνική ιστορία κυμαίνονται ανάμεσα σε μια απλή ανάγνωση στην Αγγλική Wikipedia.
To καταλαβαίνω το να θες να πάρεις μύθους και πραγματικά γεγονότα και να δημιουργ...

This novel is part historical fiction, part modern times and part mystery. It maybe even part fantasy; it is about the Amazon race, if you don't believe the Amazons ever existed then it's part fantasy.
It's the story of Myrina and Lilli, two sisters belonging to the Amazon tribe of women who worsh...

“The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.” ― Winston Churchill
This book is an amazing and epic Amazon adventure. The story is broken into duel narratives of the past and present. I normally am not a fan of time jumping narratives but the author weaved the tw...
