Silk Road is the sixth book in the Code Raven series by Lynda Filler. I know I have said this before in this series, but I think this one of the best series I have read this year. The stories are all short, fast paced, and full of action. Although this is fiction, the story is relevant and believable in this day and age. This series should be read in order because one book follows the next and if you read them all you will have the full backstory, that being said if this is the only book in the series that you read you won’t be lost, but you won’t get the full effect.
As with the past books in this series, this book features the members of the Raven Group. This story starts out with the Group looking for missing children but turns into a much bigger case of child exploitation. This action fillstory had me hooked from the very first page, and I couldn’t put it down till I read the last. I love how Ms. Filler pack so much excitement into these short installments, and hope this series continues long into the future. I highly recommend this book, series and author.
Luke and Mike are caught up in the middle while trying to locate Mike's grandson. The action is full force and a few new character's are introduced.
Get ready for an action packed adventure that will infuriate you and make you want to jump into action. Luci has been activated and when she is ready, there is no stopping her. Love, love, love this series.
I received a free advanced copy and am posting my honest and voluntary review.
“What do you know about the Silk Road?”
“Are you referring to the old Silk Road trading routes? If you are, the Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes connecting the East and West which for centuries was central to the cultural interaction between them. The Silk Road also refers to both the terrestrial and the maritime routes connecting Asia with the Middle East and southern Europe. Today, of course, it’s the new China Railway Corp route to England. It will cut ground shipping to half the time of the maritime routes. The cost of shipping goods into Europe will fall considerably making Chinese exports/imports even more viable to its trading partners in Russia and Europe.”
“Why do you ask?”
“I heard Ivanov’s men talking about the Silk Road. I’m not sure of the significance, but it’s too much of a coincidence to ignore. Let me search around and see what I come up with.”
Silk Road is the sixth book in the Code Raven series by Lynda Filler. As we have discovered in the previous book/s, this series centres around the Raven Group, which is a top-secret, special ops team who help to keep the world a safer place- and the series chronicles the action-packed missions they embark on. This latest mission may just be the most challenging one yet.
The story starts with Luke whisking Samaar(Luci) away to the Maldives for a much-needed break and Zach headed to Washington DC after a call from his friend Mike, a former Navy SEAL buddy, who needs his help. Himanish is in Geneva doing what he does best, keeping tabs on everything, and starts to put some worrying pieces together. Children are going missing from all around the world, mostly from remote areas, leaving their families devastated. So, when these abductions hit closer to home for members of the team- Luke Raven will do everything in his power to get to the bottom of it all and return the children to their families. This truly is an international mission, taking the team from Canada to Paris, The Maldives, Geneva, Washington DC, China, Tel Aviv, London, and even to Kyrgyzstan in central Asia as they try to uncover who’s been behind a wave of human kidnapping. The team pulls together, digging deep, using all their skills, contacts and networks to follow the trail- as the case becomes more complicated than they ever imagined.
We catch up with characters we know and love, as well as meeting some new ones. I love that each book in this series allows me to get to know the (recurring) characters a little bit better each time. I love watching the relationship between Luke and Samaar/Luci (and adorable Alice) develop more in this book. The little bit of romance and some touching and tender moments helped to lighten the darker topics covered in the storyline.
This is definitely one of my favourites of the series, so far. The story was an action-packed adventure, with dramatic developments, danger, abduction, intrigue, suspense, human trafficking, drug cartels, life and death situations, high stakes risk, covert ops, high-tech gadgets, social and political issues, camaraderie, friendship, bonds, romance, depravity, heart-aching situations, and so much more
I am really enjoying this series, which just seems to get better and better with each new instalment! I am really looking forward to my next adventure with the Raven Group!
Thank you, Ms. Filler!
5 out of 5 stars
Silk Road in the sixth book in the Code Raven series written by Lynda Filler. I read the prequel on book one and two but missed books three-five so I will be going back to read those books because this is an amazing series. Ms. Filler is an amazing author and this series is dead on in the evil that’s going on in this world. The characters are well written and there banter is amazing. They are not related by blood and come from all across the world even have some difference in beliefs but there is one thing you can count on in this story/series they are a family and want to help save the world.
A new Silk Road train stretches from the eastern shores of Yiwu China to London, England. Its precious cargo is not what’s written on the manifest.
A former Navy SEAL gets a terrifying message from his estranged daughter. “I’m desperate! I need your help, Dad. Bring your friends!”
When two young children are abducted in the middle of the night from Raven’s sanctuary in the Maldives, Luci, Luke, and the Raven Group will stop at nothing to get them back.
A female teenager in Kyrgyzstan is reported missing by tearful peasants. Has she become one of many kidnapped brides? Or is something far more frightening going on? The corrupt authorities ignore the parents’ pleas for help.
We get to see the gang from the Raven group what they do best saving lives.
Highly recommend this story/series…..
