    " Adventure, danger, multiple characters, justice, faith, romance... a bit of everything. Some claim it is just a story that ghost soldiers go into African villages, kill the weak and enslave the rest to work in the mines. Yet, Joseph, a fifteen year old native, photographs the attack upon his village and is the only one to escape the raid. He goes to Natalie, a medical consultant whom he helped as a translator,for help. The seek out Chad, a volunteer doctor from the United States, to treat Joseph's head wound. He joins them in getting the proof to the US embassy while circumventing high-ranking political figures who will do whatever it takes to stop them. "

    " I thought this book was going to talk more directly about human trafficking. It was a bit of a godly action love story all mixed in with corrupt government issues that do sadly occur. In particular, this story is about a woman who gets involved in helping a boy who finds her and tells her that his village was rampaged and that they were brought to a slave labor camp to get minerals for our use of cell phones, laptops, cameras, etc. This is a reality that I don't believe gets touched up on enough, but at the same time this wasn't a primary focus in the book which let me down. I loved the idea of the power of prayer in here, but at the same time some of the situations and instances were very abnormal and unrealistic that it was a little corny at times. I guess with all the books I've read on human trafficking (this being the 18th or so), I have created higher expectations for what I expect in the books! It wasn't bad though. I'm not much for fiction so that's probably why I didn't like it as much. "

    " It was a little hard getting used to the short chapters and the first-person jumping around, but I was relatively captivated and sought out the second book in the series, Blood Covenant. "

    " It was okay. I found it good but not that good. Some parts are boring, but others were okay. "

    " well written but couldn't get into it! "

    " Amazing novel about how God works in our lives when we seek His will and trust that he has our future in his hands. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luckngrace | 6/12/2013

    " Christian award winner. Natalie goes to central Africa to help immunize natives and encounters "ghost soldiers", rigged elections and deadly political intrigue. Offers God's biblical advice and comfort during dangerous times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 2/27/2013

    " This was a book I got for free for my Kindle. It is "Christian Fiction" so I wasn't sure exactly what to expect or how it would be written. But the story was actually really good and kept me engrossed the whole book. "

    " Interesting and quick paced. I downloaded this from the Sony site in e-book format. The entire book was missing apostrophes, quotation marks and some periods. I might have enjoyed it more if they were there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deanna Hansen | 9/7/2011

    " Very tension packed story of African life impacted by corruption and child slavery. A story that was hard to stop reading! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret Daley | 6/9/2011

    " I really enjoyed this story. The suspense kept me turning the pages. Natalie was a strong heroine who was a match for the villains. The author discussed a problem (slave trade) that needs to be addressed. A job well done. "

    " It's Book One, I would like to read the rest. It was sad, and I liked how Natalie is totally not a girly girl. She's strong minded, stubborn and can pretty much take care of herself. HMMMMM! I think I'm relating to this character. "
