Sidney is being blackmailed by Homeland Security agent Declan Doyle - he's threatening to reveal her true identity and other things from her past that are best left in the past and not given Declan's twisted view. She agrees to turn herself in once she and part of her team realize that they will not lock her away - they need her for something, she would be a great asset.
When Sydney and her dog/partner Blue arrive at the airport for the meet, Sydney is met by Declan and his boss. Their plan takes them to the Middle East, to an area where a group of women soldiers are fighting for the homes and their right to be treat as human beings.
Within 24 hours of reaching the women's base, Sydney is kidnapped by the person who is supposed to be guarding and protecting her. This starts her on a path where she doesn't know who is friend or foe, she meets an equally strong woman who is a hero to many women in the area. Together, they set out to rescue a woman who is being held until Sydney's new friend turns herself in.
I really have only touched on some of the things Sydney deals with in this action packed, very emotional book about women's rights, the abuse of women and the lengths these women will go to in order to see some advancement towards equality.
I was given this book as an Advance Reader in exchange for my review, but, as you can see, I have purchased the book.
Emily Kimelman knows how to bring women's issues into a book and make you think - Sydney Rye kicks butt and gets results!
Second, I am not too much into reading about the Middle-East and all the present day turmoil there we see and here too much of it every day. I spent 9 years active duty after joining the US Marine Corps. I recently visited my old recruit training station in San Diego, CA. The new graduates coming out of there look so sharp...... I could not believe that 60 years ago I was one of these kids at age 17. I had tears in my eyes, I was so proud of these guys and gals, and even now I get chills just talking about it. Sadly, these kids will soon be in harms way and to what end? To be killed or maimed in a foreign land where no one knows what the "H" they are being killed for - shameful. My political speech for today, which will probably be chopped from this review site.
And, it is a bit ironic (or is it) that this theme (of, what would you call it, a female revolution?) should arise about now. I notice that on CBS we no longer have a male co-anchor. I believe all of this "sexual abuse" in the workplace is a conspiracy to displace men in the workplace. I like it - the ladies can work and us guys can all go fishing! Please, no applause or letters necessary I'm just being satyrical about how we (Americans) can create more distraction with fads than anywhere else in the World.
Moreover, Blue is my favorite character in this series. I already love this dog and if something should happen to him I'll stop reading this series, altogether. The opinions here are my own and I'm sticking with it! ~
This book makes valid points on how women are underestimated and considered second class the world over. But when given the chance can rise up and make a phenomenal difference. Women are warriors because we are stronger. Action, drama, thrilling, adrenaline pumping, gritty, are all things that describe this series.
