    One thought on “The Lost Sisterhood

    1. Althea Ann on said:

      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 'hieros gamos'?)From the basic book description, I found the concept very appealing:An Oxford lecturer and expert on the legends of the s makes discoveries that lead her to believe that an 'cult' may hav [...]

      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 just can't wait to hear what you think of it. It's so strange to live in your own story-world for years, without being able to discuss it with more than a handful of people. But all that is about to chang [...]

      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 s and their sparse history, as THE LOST SISTERHOOD overflowed with Greek mythology. But that was where this tale and I parted ways on the positive side, as many of the negatives pressed into my flesh.First, this novel splayed itself across a few too many pages, and then it managed to develop an ambitiousness best reserved for p [...]

      I received an advance copy of this book from Ballantine Books (Random House Publishing Group) via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewE LOST SISTERHOOD is an entertaining and intriguing story that unfortunately does not always realize its full potential. The parallel story lines about the mythical s in both the ancient and the modern worlds provide an exciting premise for the book, and there are many exciting moments born of this premise, but the quality of the story is inconsistent. It se [...]

I didn't even want to read Anne Fortier's debut, but it was the first title on the giveaway page when I discovered that section of the site and I was a little excited at the novelty of it all.

      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 [...]

      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 . To καταλαβαίνω το να θες να πάρεις μύθους και πραγματικά γεγονότα και να δημιο [...]

      This novel is part historical fiction, part modern times and part mystery. It maybe even part fantasy; it is about the race, if you don't believe the s ever existed then it's part fantasy.It's the story of Myrina and Lilli, two sisters belonging to the tribe of women who worship the Moon Goddess and Diana, the current day philologist on a quest to find evidence of the s. *Philology is the study of language in written historical sources; it is a combination of literary criticism, history, and l [...]

      “The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.” ― Winston ChurchillThis book is an amazing and epic 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 two narratives together with mesmerizing perfection.It took me a while to get through this book. Not simply because of its length but because there was just so much adventure and intrigue that I couldn't mar [...]

Then perhaps you have come to the right place for this book provides you with a good mix of everything I just mentioned above.There are mixed reviews all over the place about this book and it’s really easy to see why.

    12. Abbey on said:

      Other than general blandness, I'm not sure why I'm not more excited about this book. I feel like I should be--it has a very interesting premise, and even brings in bits that feel like "Clan of the Cave Bear." But having said that, none of the characters are developed enough to cause me to actually care--Myrina has an incredibly tragic event off the bat in the book, but her character is so non-dimensional that I don't actually care. Likewise, Morg has an interest that should be fascinating to me, [...]

    13. Theresa on said:

      Meh. Got about 2/3 of the way through and decided I didn't care. The highly educated (Oxford) female protagonist who falls in love with the man who verbally abuses her or at the very least treats her with contempt really sick of this trope.

    14. Rachel on said:

      I wanted so much to like this book, as I am interested in the myth and the archaeological mystery adventure (a la Indiana Jones) is right up my alley. But I hated it, and couldn't even finish it due to being so exasperated with the writing. Since the good points of this book are so few, I'll list them first. Fortier's plot is engaging. Diana Morgan, an academic, leaves her post at Oxford to jet across the world on an ultra-secret mission to excavate a site that may be linked to the mythical s. [...]

      Three and a half stars: A book that is too lengthy, and it stumbles with unfinished story lines.Diana Morgan is desperately trying to lock in her place at Oxford. Right now, she is a guest lecturer whose expertise is Greek Mythology and the mythical warriors. After an exasperating day, Diana is cornered by a strange man who is linked to a wealthy foundation. He presents Diana with an offer she can’t refuse. Diana meets up with Nick Barran, an enigmatic guide. Together they travel to North Afr [...]

      Rated 5 Blue Ribbons + Recommended Read. Also posted at TBRMountainRange with a discussion question.When offered five thousand dollars to help interpret the writings of an ancient civilization, can a young academic resist the pull of adventure? Especially when this job may prove the existence of the long sought after s? Did this cult of women ever really exist and was her grandmother one of them? History, mythology and contemporary academia combine in an intriguing adventure.A fascinating tale, [...]

    17. Linda Robinson on said:

      The author has a PhD in the History of Ideas, which, if not the coolest doctoral endeavor on the planet is surely close to the top. And ideas are what are on display in this novel. Wickedly clever ideas that showcase Fortier's knowledge of ancient cultures, and celebrate the Warrior Women throughout history who are regrettably missing from the heroic tales. She writes in the acknowledgements that maybe the events depicted didn't happen the way the novel supposes, but that absolutely does not mea [...]

      3.5 starsArc provided by Random House Publishing Group- Ballantine through NetgalleyThis is a story that left me with mixed feelings: on one hand it develops a complex and rich story from ancient mythology; on the other hand, I found the characters and the initial pace of the adventure not very interesting.Told in alternating points of views, this tale is divided between two very different chronological time phases:• One takes place during the Bronze age. In it we follow the paths of two siste [...]

    19. Carol Apple on said:

      I think I found The Lost Sisterhood by Anne Fortier on a Libertarian book list. I loved the book even though it is a far-fetched adventure thriller. Come to think of it, all my favorite novels are farfetched stretchers of plausibility: Ivanhoe, Les Miserables, Kate Atkinson ‘s Life After Life. In the end this novel stirred my imagination and sent thrills of possibility down my spine.The story begins in the stuffy academic world of the Oxford Ancient Studies department where a 27-year-old philo [...]

    20. Julie on said:

      Even in today’s liberated society, it can be a challenge to find female heroes. Well in Ancient times, it was practically impossible. We don’t hear of very many women in the stories of the Ancient Greeks and Romans and the women who do make an appearance in the myths have a tendency to be victims who are molested by the gods, or jealous goddesses who start wars. The exception to this are the mythical s, a race of fierce women warriors. Although no one is certain the s existed, they are menti [...]

    21. Nancy Goldberg Wilks on said:

      When I finally (with much regret) closed the back cover of The Lost Sisterhood, I sat for awhile mulling over whether I would give the book 5 stars or 4 & ½ stars (were I to do star-rated reviews). Instead of reaching a decision, I opened the front cover and began reading the book again. It wasn’t long before I was once again ruing the closing of the back cover. It is that good! The “Lost Sisterhood” mentioned in the title refers to the s – those epic women warriors of mythical pro [...]

    22. Ariana Fae on said:

      The Lost Sisterhood captured my attention because it revolved around the legendary s, the theme about individual freedom and breaking gender stereotypical roles. Anne Fortier did a wonderful job of intertwining the tales of two women: Myrina who takes on the responsibility of protecting and leading her sister through an ancient world, and Diana who is on a quest to prove that s were not myths but truly existed. The main female characters were strong and my favorite was Diana’s grandmother. Alt [...]

      Being part feminist, I just couldn't ignore the existence of this book. I always wanted to learn the history of this people and although the book is obviously a fictional version of the know myth, it still is a dilightfullydifferent approach of what may have occurred.Mrs Fortier writing isis quite elegant and thw switch from the present to the past and back keeps the reader in suspense as the story always pauses at a critical point.I couldn't not notice that through the story, the writer appeare [...]

    24. Holly on said:

      *3.5 starsI really liked parts of this story but something just seemed to be missing for me. I don't think I liked Diana very much. For an Oxford scholar she seemed very naïve and even un-intelligent at times. I did like Myrina's story, learning about the s, and having a bit of mythology thrown in. Overall I liked this book but I just didn't love it like I wanted to.

    25. Heather on said:

      A fun march back into the historical events surrounding the beginnings of the women and their legends. A dual-timeline story that slowly unravels to bring together the best of historical speculation and modern-day treasure hunting.

Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here.I rated this novel warty!(some spoilers)This novel is Romancing the Stone meets Stargate yet it fails to be either.

      Title - The Lost SisterhoodAuthor - Anne FortierSummary - (SPOILERS)"Thank you, Dr. Morgan. I am gratified to discover that I am no longer the most antiquated scholar at Oxford. For your sake I hope the academy will one day come to need feminism again; the rest of us, I am relieved to say, have long since moved along and buried the old battle-ax" Diana Morgan has an obsession.

      Interesting mystery about the s. I haven't really read a lot about them and the Ancient Greece class I took in university didn't really hook me, but I still found the backstory to this book interesting. It also had me wanting to watch Wonder Woman again!
