Cutting Edge  Feb 7, 2009
Russian FSB agent Yanna Andrevka goes under cover without back up to find her sister who thought she was becoming a mail-order bride going to America, but instead was swallowed up by an international slave trade cartel.

Yanna can usually rely on her long time friend and secret love American Delta Force captain (military undercover operative) David Curtiss, but he's nowhere to be found. She assumes he's doing something dangerous in deep cover. She's so right on that one. When she's captured, as is her plan, by the same trafficers who took her sister, David finds her with a gun to her head. He must blow his cover in an operation that took months to set up to take down the Twin Dragons (involved in drugs, arms, and forced prostitution).

Yanna is an FSB (the made over KGB) IT expert, not a field operative, so she makes plenty of tactical blunders during the course of the story. However she doesn't always need David to save her, nor is she always appreciative of his efforts or his fear for her safety. The horrors of human trafficing are not gruesomely described, but neither are they glossed over.

Although this is definitely a stand alone book, Warren constructs a plot with many twists and turns, bringing characters from former books in this Mission Russia series. Sparks fly as Yanna and David try to achieve their seperate agendas, sometimes endangering each other, sometimes rescuing each other, always dealing with the chemistry they feel for each other. David has a monumental struggle trying to handle his deep love for Yanna, as he will not allow himself to be unequally yoked in marriage.

This is a compelling story of unrequited love amidst a thrilling adventure frought with danger, some of it brought on by the character flaws of the two main characters. It's a really good read.

Wowza!! =)  Nov 25, 2008
This story was fantastic, definitely one of Susie's best and I'm one of her biggest fans =) So that's hard to say. But I was on the edge of my chair, quite literally, throughout much of the story and couldn't wait for my lunch break at work to be able to devour another 80 pages or so.

The chemistry between the hero and heroine sparked with an amazing combination of realism, purity and depth. Their love and sacrifice was heartwrenching and inspiring.

Also, the glimpse inside an awful portion of our world's trade system will sober one into prayer and research. Such horrors must be stopped!

This was an amazing story, one not to be missed - a perfect continuation to the series but it was also more than able to stand firmly on its own for new readers.

Good job, Susie!! (again!!) =)
A thrilling ride!  Oct 22, 2008
I highly recommend Wiser Than Serpents! It's an amazing piece of work just as a stand-alone fiction, but knowing the subject is a harsh reality brings it into a whole new light. This is no casual story about a rescue. It's an on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of thrill ride. I love that it's written from the rescuers' perspective, so it's not only full of action, suspense and life-threatening situations, but it's also full of hope, courage and reliance on God. It opened my eyes to a real problem in the world today without being preachy. Oh, and just so you're not loaded down with the run in and shoot 'em up scene, there's a romantic side woven in as well.

Even though this is the third book in a series (I haven't read the first two), it feels full and complete on it's own. Susan gives enough background along the way so we're not feeling left out...and enough to pique my interest into running to get the other two books.
Wiser then Serpent by Susan May Warren  Oct 2, 2008
Wiser then Serpent by Susan May Warren

Reviewed by Carlo Gabbi Author of "An Amazing Story"

Reading this book I felt frustrated not finding a proper answers about the adduction and the slavery racket that over the past years had took deep roots around the world. They kidnap and smuggle women from one country to another coercing their prey into prostitution.
The first time I learned of this ignoble trade was years ago reading in an Italian newspaper the story of young women smuggled to Italy from the Balkans and compelled by their countrymen in prostitution in Milan.
More recently it was a similar story in the Australian news where young women from Thailand, or nearby Asian Countries, were illegally smuggled in Melbourne and Sydney. Those women were with false passports and forced into prostitution in illegal brothels.
That's the reason why I wanted to read Susan May Warren's novel, "Wiser then Serpent" hoping to learn more about this prostitution ring. But I didn't found any clue.
Of course the book is only a fictional suspense novel; therefore you can't expect a report about this criminal organization which works with many tentacles around the world.
But of one think I give credit to the author. With this book she presented to her many readers an important human problem and the concern we should feel about.

In the novel I found many points which aren't fully convincing. I found the Super Cops in the novel are lacking in skill and coordination to deal against experienced criminals. They seem a bit too amateurs in the way they are going through their mission. It seems they don't have any plan in mind, or police support to protect their backs. This is a risky operation, it isn't a kid cartoon. The plot is much too simplistic, which in real life would miserably fail immediately and would see the bodies of our heroes dumped in the China Sea as food for the shark.

The next critical point which I cannot accept is Yanna and David impossible love. How could be possible that two people that are in love for over ten years have never told the other of their inner feelings? If it's true somewhere is something very wrong.
I read pages and pages written on this argument, questioning David incapacity to love Yanna only because he is a Christian and Yanna isn't.
If they are not compatible fair enough, we better forget about their eternal love. Let them be good cops and friends. This part drags too far and becomes boring.
Again in real life things wouldn't work along this line. Love is love. If someone is really in love, would be more then eager to let it know to his/her lover as soon as possible his/her feelings. If he is incapable to say it with words, certainly it would be a lot of body language to equally passing his/her message of love. Love in its existence is striking. If is not, that's the end and full stop. Love in itself is blind and have its necessities. I believe that no religious principle would really stop who loves. Lovers would go to any extend to love each other. Why? Because love is irrational and is above all the restriction and principle written in books since humanity exist.
As a final point we know that David is a soldier. As a soldier he has been trained to kill. Therefore killing should equally be in contrast with his Christian feeling. But he is allowed to kill. Tell me then why is not allowed to love? As a soldier it would be more rational if he considers Christianity and its morale in a more flexible way. Differently he wouldn't be a soldier but a missionary.
These are only my point of views. Most likely other readers would prefer to accept the plots in the way are written in the book.

I found that only over the last few pages the book becomes more acceptable, but for me it was a bit too late.

Nevertheless the novel present to the public an important topic. I believe it needs to be voiced out; we cannot tolerate any longer this kind of abuse, denigrating the life of young women, in today world.
On this point I give complete credit to the writer in presenting to her many readers this crucial moral subject and I hope our governments would do something to prevent in the future such cruelties. Or would this be only a dream?
