Praise For The Shadow Mission…
— 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.”
