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.
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
