    This is a great book - well written, with plausible, interesting

    This is a great book - well written, with plausible, interesting characters and great adventure. It doesn't shy away from addressing sexism in the military, but still has a very positive message for women.

    There are 2 flaws which don't detract from the story, but bothered me a little: 1. There is an unnecessary and unprofessional romance (or more of a sexual tension) between the main character and her trainer/superior, which undermines the women-belong-in-the-military message a little (but I'm sure some readers will like it). 2. Not unexpected (since author is military), but it perpetuates the myth that US Military (and Special Forces in particular) does campaigns/missions out of altruism to help protect the world, rather than to further US interests.

    Overall, I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who likes action-adventure, underdogs-beat-all-odds or female empowerment stories.

    Wow. A definite winner

    Though she has risen to the rank of major in the Air Force, Vanessa Blake still dreams of becoming a Navy SEAL. She feels she is more than qualified to perform the missions once she receives her training, but no female has ever been selected as a SEAL at least until now. To her euphoria, Vanessa and an elite selected team of women have been chosen to be guinea pigs by forming a cell of female Seals, the Medusas................................. SEAL Lieutenant Colonel Jack Scatalone is skeptical about these women meeting the physical and mental demands. However, watching them work, Jack changes his mind as he becomes their biggest supporter. In particular he is attracted to Vanessa, but knows that does not interfere in his change of mind only a change of heart that he has found his mate. On a mission to rescue his team trapped in the Middle East, Jack is caught too. This time the brass sends the Medusas led by Vanessa to rescue the male SEALs................................. THE MEDUSA PROJECT is a terrific military gender bending thriller with the women making up the cavalry coming to the rescue of the besieged men. The story line is 98% testosterone (including the Medusas) and 2% romance mostly because the exploits are non-stop without time or location for much on the sheets. Thus the relationship between the two likable heroic protagonists is realistic rather than the usual life threatening scenario with time for a quick nip and tuck. Fans of thrillers starring SEALs will enjoy the action-packed THE MEDUSA PROJECT........................... Harriet Klausner
