Asha, the heroine, is loyal to her family and friends and willing to bend the rules to keep herself and them safe. This story deals with human trafficking and the women are sold into modern day sexual slavery, but, for the most part, the author stays away from graphic details. That's not to say the violence and cruelty of the traffickers is glossed over or ignored, just that the nitty gritty details of the women's sexual exploitation are mostly left to the reader's imagination.
As Asha, the main heroine, finds her way from one dangerous situation to another, she gathers a band of friends. They pool their individual strengths and rely on one another and, at times, the goodness of strangers. But the traffickers aren't the only undesirables they meet. A snooty, jealous chef, drug traffickers, unsympathetic immigration officers and indifferent or corrupt police also throw obstacles in their path. The tendency to punish the victims of trafficking as prostitutes and/or illegal migrants and let their traffickers slip free to find more victims is a sad truth even today when most governments have signed international agreements to prevent trafficking and protect its victims.
I didn't think I could do it, but I read this story in one day. I just could not put it down. There were one or two places, particularly in the extensive description of the decor and dining in a lavish castle, where the story bogged down a bit, but overall this was a great read with plenty of action, interesting characters and brilliant glimpses into the ways society promotes exploitation of vulnerable women and children throughout the globe, in wealthy and developing nations alike. The explanations of how these women and children were drawn into labor and sex trafficking were true to life and this series is a useful tool to bring these practices to light.
I read a complimentary copy of this book; this is my voluntary and honest review.
Now just a few years older, this beautiful child is plunged into the worst of the evil. Realities that we turn our eyes from in hopes it will not disturb our beautiful existence. Still yet to be a woman, she travels across continents and into worlds that should not exist for any of our children.
There is nothing slow about the plot in this second book of the series but it demands your heart be strong as a witness to the truth endured. The child touches upon womanhood and her inner strength wins out over evil.
Tikiri presents a reality wrapped in a fictional journey that is a must-read for everyone who wants to see a better world. In a world of sound bites where attention span is measured in split seconds, this wonderful adventure makes you stop the hustle and bustle to engage in the reality etched across the pages. Not for the faint of heart, this book will demand your engagement and open questions about how we need to become active in our community.
This is a fast paced thriller. We are treated to some exotic locations mixed with dire dives. It also touches on the current issue of the slave trade and child prostitution.
All in all a good read.
i was gifted a copy by hidden gems and i enjoyed it so much that i want to review
