This is a wonderful book. Amalie Jahn did an excellent job in putting together a well thought out plot with very likable characters. The story is so well told that it brought me into the pages and I felt that I was part of the script. I was overwhelmed with a mixture of strong feelings. I felt excitement, anger, resentment and utter shock at the horrible, disturbing issue of human trafficking.
The plot was quite riveting and I was glued to the pages. I loved the soft touch of supernatural. The author used the aura of a person through out the story and though not trying to make it a major theme it becomes quite meaningful. The most important issue of the book is centered on the subject of foreign women brought to the States to find a better life but instead their dreams are crashed into dust. That was gut retching.
I am now a fan of Amalie Jahn. I loved her first book The Clay Lion and I thought she could not do any better than that. Boy was I wrong. The second book is absolutely fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a suspenseful and compelling story filled with excitement and provocation.
