I have to say that I read this book in less than 24 hours, it was so gripping. I won't give a description of the story, as others have likely covered that. Instead, I want to give my impressions of the story.

As a human trafficking prevention missionary, I can attest to the fact that Ms. Terry's portrayal of sex trafficking was spot on. Her setting may have been Asia, but it might easily have been the US or other Western countries as well. From Sun's recruitment to her initiation phase, it was like I was reading a news report instead of fiction. Yes, it often really does happen that way.

The antagonists infuriated me, but it was easy to understand their motivation. Especially those struggling to survive in the midst of hunger. Up until a few pages before Agent Ko's true identity was revealed, I waffled between which character I believed it to be. Only right before the reveal did I guess it, in fact.

The American missionary wife's personality greatly annoyed me, but I suspect there are deeper issues she struggles with that manifest themselves in her annoying personality traits. (I have a good guess what they are, but will have to see if I'm right in future books.)

As a missionary to a free country, I cannot imagine what it would be like carrying the Gospel to a closed country like North Korea that is hostile to Christians. I hope we get to hear more about the North Korean missionaries that were trained in future books.

"Slave Again" is written from a Christian perspective, by a Christian, but there isn't anything in it that would be offensive to a non-believer. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and look forward to reading other books written by Ms. Terry.

While I did receive a copy of this book, for free, in exchange for my unbiased review, I discovered I'd already purchased the book last week anyway.

(I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)

It seems wrong to say that Slave Again was a pleasure to read, because at times it was an incredibly difficult and painful one. Not because of the writing or story-telling; those are superb, and this book is a great read. But I find it hard to read stories that are strongly based in reality, in which people hurt and exploit one another. So it feels wrong to say I was entertained, even though I couldn't put it down... I hope that makes sense. It's certainly an eye-opener, as The Beloved Daughter was.

The highest praise I can give the book is this: I was reading it in a hot bath, and ended up sitting there shivering in freezing water because I didn't want to put the book down to get out. I couldn't just leave the characters like that, you know? I was right there with them. And that rates 5 stars from me.

Slave Again has suspense, danger, and several characters I loved and hope to see more of. Other characters I disliked, but the author does a fantastic job of making even them understandable, if not sympathetic. Highly recommended.

A young woman who has never known freedom. Of any sort. Not freedom from hunger, from cold, from near starvation, from the misuse of her body by others. Her journey to forgiveness — especially of herself — is not an easy one. Mistakes are made along the way even by those trying to help her see the light, but God designs the paths we all tread and His hand is very clear in every part of this book. Gritty subject matter, adroitly handled. Strongly recommended.

I LOVED this book just as I loved Beloved Daughter. They both made me feel a broad range of emotions. There were times when I felt that I could guess what was going to happen, but I still read on hoping to bring wrong and sometimes there was a surprise thrown in that I never could have guessed. The end of this was a real surprise especially that the end had come too soon.
It is a great series and I just hope they keep on coming. So what are waiting for? An invitation? Ok, here it is read them both and find out for yourself.

This novella is an in-between book, almost like a pre-quel. Though each of Ms. Terry's books can be read alone, they lend support for each other, beginning with Beloved Daughter, then Slave Again, and finally Torn Asunder. The novella is short enough to be read quickly. Since I am already reading Torn Asunder, I noticed that what is introduced in this book is continued in that one. So if the story seems a little disjointed, there are several threads being introduced that will continue later in subsequent books.

The suspense and action in this book is tough as nails and somewhat graphic. The worst of it is implied, but our imaginations can easily fill in the details. This is not meant to be a feel good, tender read. The events portray the horrors of living in North Korea, how some try to cross the river into China out of desperation just to earn some money to send back to their starving families. The major thread follows Pang and Mee-Kyong after they have escaped Camp 22. They are about to cross over the border, guided by a sleazy, greedy border broker. Before crossing, Mee-Kyong gives birth to a dead baby; she is considerably weakened by the bleeding but crosses anyway. The broker sells her and another girl into a hotel that prostitutes them. Mee-Kyong adopts the young girl, Sun, and tries to protect her as best as she can.

Eventually she escapes and finds the home of an American couple operating a business in the area. But they also operate a secret seminary for refugees who desire to return to North Korea and offer hope to their friends, neighbors and families. The work is very dangerous, and only a few pass over the border at a time to minimize the risk. Mee-Kyong arrives at the house after the last group has already departed.
