Mary at Home Steeped Hope
Let it suffice that I was riveted to the recliner from page one. Susan’s characters grabbed my interest and my heart, and the plot escalated my heart rate so much that I kept glancing over at the half open front door, thinking maybe I should go over and lock it up tight!

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.

So in my mind, it was providential that I get the opportunity to read and post information about this book.
Amy at The 160 Acre Woods
So about this book– I’m sure for those who have read Susan’s work before know how great it is! This book is a thriller! I loveeeeeeeeeeee thrillers. I love the excitement and the frustration in this book. I love that I can feel for the characters and that it brings some real issues to light/life. I also love the fact that God is ever presence in this book and that the characters have to rely on Him. It pulls him into the here and now. Susan’s writing is easy to read. I think I read this book in about a day and half b/c I couldn’t put it down! I’ll be searching for more of her books as she’s captured me with her amazing details and imagery in her novel.

My friends, I absolutely loved this book, and was very excited to find out that there have been two other books involving these same characters!
Brittanie at A Book Lover Forever
I loved this book . It is the third in a series that I have highly anticipated each and every book. I highly recommend the whole series. It is possible to read the third without feeling too lost but I recommend reading them in order so the details about the other characters that come out make perfect sense. From the beginning I was pulled in and I did not want to quit reading until the end. I loved finding out more about the lives of other past major characters and coming to love and find out more about the main characters in this book. The characters and plot are interesting and unique. Don't miss out on this great suspense with a touch of romance book and series!

Man, this book has it all: internation intrigue, human trafficking, and of course, romance. What's amazing to me is how well it's woven together with a spiritual thread to make an entertaining story fit for the big screen.
Tasra at Real Women Scrap
You won't believe it, but I finished an entire book in one day this past weekend. It's billed as a thriller and I'm normally not a thrill seeker, but this book had me riveted.
Margaret at Cappuccino Life
Susan May Warren takes a difficult and ugly subject and turns it into a fast paced, facts-based thriller. She also manages to take the reader through the realities of human trafficking without finding it necessary to delve into the gory details. We get the idea without having a vivid mental picture drawn for us. Of course, this being Christian chick-lit, there is also some romantic entanglement, difficult decisions guided by Scripture, and the Gospel message woven in.
Melanie at Melanie Writes
I highly recommend this deliciously satisfying book, the third in the Mission: Russia series. Can’t wait for the next one!
AnnMarie at More Than Just A Mom
Every once in awhile, I receive a book that grabs my attention, refusing to let go. Sometimes the book will have a remarkable (read: make you THINK about the world around you) message as well. Wiser than Serpents is one of them. Written by Susan May Warren, Wiser is an action packed thriller-romance that will keep you turning pages long after you should have gone to sleep (take my word for it!).
Leticia at My Daily Trek
When I received my copy of "Wiser Than Serpents" I couldn't wait to get started and I was not disappointed. After the first few sentences my attention was immediately captured and I was riveted to my seat! The characters came to life and I could actually relate to them.
Jill at Christian Work At Home Moms
Susie knows how to write a delightful story, with compelling characters, and nonstop action. The faith message is very much a part of this story, woven into every scene with excellence. Yanna and David are real and the reader quickly grows to care for them. Don’t miss this new winner by award-winning author, Susan May Warren. You won’t be disappointed.

Ronie at Supernatural Craving
And this is exactly why Susan May Warren is one of my writing heroes. Susie always manages to craft out an amazing story with awesome characters, and her latest book, Wiser Than Serpents, is no different. Interestingly enough, this book captivated me--but not with the hero and heroine, who were awesome in their own right--but with the secondary characters. I'm sorry, but I just couldn't get enough of Vicktor. He had me laughing, and you just can't help but to root for the poor guy. And oy! Did Gracie bean him with a horshoe!!! Yowzers!! And yes...this means I have to go back and read his book, too.
Deborah at Books, Movies, Chinese Food
This book was a total thrill ride right from the beginning of the story. I felt like I was watching an episode of Alias or 24. I love the characters and I love reading about Russian culture. Susan Warren really displays her knowledge of the country and culture through these books. VERY HIGHLY recommended.
Christy at Christy's Book Blog
Warren has a terrific grasp of Russian culture, and I always enjoy reading her books.
Kate at A Simple Walk
I love when I find a book that really grabs my attention and makes me think well after I turn the final page. Wiser Than Serpents by Susan May Warren fit that description perfectly. I spent much of the Fourth of July weekend engrossed in this thrilling novel that brings to light the frighteningly real world of human trafficking and slavery.
Dineen at Kittens Come From Eggs
I love this series, and especially love Susan's books. She's an awesome writer and storyteller.
Joy at Five J's
Not only did the book begin to open my eyes to the tragedy of human trafficking and modern slavery, but I was also very impressed with the quality of Susan’s writing. I thoroughly enjoyed every page of the book, and I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future.
Beth at The Writing Road
I loved Wiser Than Serpents. It's got Susan's trademark fast-moving plot, well-developed characters and--as always--a few surprises along the way.
Rel at Relz Reviewz
Susan May Warren's latest novel has everything a great romantic suspense novel needs ~ engaging characters, exotic locale, high tension, imminent danger and great substance.
Angela at All that Naz
On a scale from 1-5, I give it 4 Naz's, because the subject matter is important, the writing style is engaging, and the characters are interesting.
Jill Elizabeth at Artistic Blogger
Her personal experience in Russia as a missionary makes her extra qualified to write her Russia-based tales of romantic suspense.
Deena at A Peek at My Bookshelf
But this novel blew me away, enlightened me, encouraged me AND entertained me--that's a home run in fiction!
Cara at Cara's Musings
Amy at My Friend Amy
Seriously, if you like romantic suspense (or know someone who does), and you care about making a difference this book retails at just 6.99! Well worth it!
Lynetta at Open Book
Susan’s fast paced plot doesn’t blur the ability to know these characters inside and out. Both David and Yanna could very well live in the real world. Through dialogue, description, and their reactions, the reader lives inside their head for the duration of the story. And good luck putting it down once you pick it up!
Susan at His
This book is really tough to put down. From the opening scene, Susan put you right in the center of the action in such a way that you aren't sure who is in charge! The writing is so dynamic that I almost felt like I was watching a movie. This is a fabulous book that deals with a terrifying real life situation that the world seems to ignore.
