A thrilling new historical novel that will forever alter our understanding of one of mankind's greatest myths--the Amazons--from the author of the New York Times bestseller Juliet

The Lost Sisterhood tells the story of Diana, an aspiring young-- but somewhat aimless--professor at Oxford. Her fascination with the history of the Amazons, the legendary warrior women of ancient Greece, is deeply connected with her own family's history. When Diana is invited to consult on an archaeological excavation, she quickly realizes that here, finally, may be the proof that the Amazons were real.

The "true" history of the Amazons is threaded through the modern-day hunt Diana embarks upon with her mysterious employer. This remote backstory focuses on a group of women and more specifically on two sisters, whose fight to survive takes us through ancient Greece and to Troy, where the novel reinvents our perspective on the famous Trojan War.

The Lost Sisterhood features a cast of iconic, legendary characters and another grand adventure from a master storyteller. Fortier delivers a fresh new story to keep her audience coming back for more.

The first third of this was so interesting then I felt it slowly dissolved into a silly romance.

Brilliant. Riveting. Rich characters that are woven into dueling story lines that blend the past with the present. This journey follows the story of two women, separated by millennia, one to lead her sisters through the ancient world and the other to prove their existence and that their legacy is enduring. This is a fast-paced, spellbinding adventure that will capture the imagination and heart.

This one is a real page turner! I loved both the ancient and contemporary storylines, as well as both protagonists. I also found the Amazonian theme fascinating. A great read for fans of Indiana Jones movies and Dan Brown books.

I loved this book! It was a little long but it keeps you on your toes.

Follow the lives of Diana Morgan and Myrina. Two strong women whose lives eventually intersect as the present searches out the past. History will repeat itself and love conquers all.

Mythology, history, suspense, & love rolled into one.
