Shadow Mission new release
“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: With a global scope, and just a hint of romance, it makes taking down the patriarchy fun.” 
Natalie C. Anderson, author of CITY OF SAINTS & THIEVES

Praise for The Shadow Mission

THE SHADOW MISSION is a great YA action/suspense read with strong female characters and high-octane crime solving….

YA Books Central

Author Shamim Sarif is making huge waves in the YA thriller and screenwriting worlds.

GLAAD.org

A badass, action-packed, feminist page-turner….Sarif’s second volume in this woman-centered spy series is as fast-paced and engaging as the first. The ethnically and globally diverse cast of Athena women….confront the universality of patriarchal norms, misogyny, and oppressive treatment of women worldwide.
