The Lost Sisterhood, by Anne Fortier

The Lost Sisterhood, by Anne Fortier

The Lost Sisterhood is a dual narrative that combines a modern day archaeological adventure/mystery with the origins of the Amazonian myth.  Slightly reminiscent of Indiana Jones, this story includes travel, intrigue, adventure and myth.  However, none of it seems too fast paced or outlandish.  The writing seems to temper the possibility of excessive excitement.  The author includes scenes that would play out well in an action movie, but it never seems over-the-top.  The characters are moderate in their emotions in the midst of life threatening situations.  Possibly more character development is needed to make the story that much more delicious?  It is an enjoyable story and a great way to re-imagine the Amazons.
