Amber Stone: Agent Zero is a work of thriller and espionage fiction penned by author Amina Warsuma. The plot is female focused, bringing an inventive new twist to the spy genre as we follow our heroine Amber Stone into the intriguing world of the DEA in South America. When a standard undercover job turns out to be more than Agent Zero bargained for, our plot expands into the discovery of a worldwide terrorist cell bent on causing chaos and destruction to bring down the current world order. Six women driven to despair by pain are the answer. Amber must face the Daughters of Al-Lat, even when the stakes turn against her and her family in a very personal way.
I particularly enjoyed this spy thriller tale because of its unusual premise, and I felt that author Amina Warsuma brought that aspect to life with emotional depth and some interesting psychological understanding of what it takes to turn someone into an extremist. Whilst Amber herself was a little generic and clean cut as a spy hero figure, the complexities of the plot forced her to test new elements of her character, presenting a mixture of the predictable and unpredictable in terms of the twists and turns of the narrative. I liked the dialogue, which was fresh and honest, free from the old fashioned information overload of older books in the spy genre. Overall, Amber Stone: Agent Zero marks the dawning of a new age of female-led spy novels and it’s a good place to start exploring that genre.
