Slave Again is about the horrific reality of the sex trade industry in China. This is a tough, gritty subject and the author handles it well. There are many things in this book that are hard to read about and some twists that will surprise the reader. It is definitely an edge-of-your-seat read!
Alana Terry is good at portraying the depravity that humanity is capable of, while still staying within the bounds of Christian fiction. Even those who are “good” in this book have their weaknesses. Be aware that this book does have some violent situations in it and be prepared to shed tears.
Slave Again definitely stands alone, however, I believe that my reading of it was enhanced by the fact that I had read The Beloved Daughter last year. Mee-Kyong was not a character I liked in The Beloved Daughter and as I began this book, I still did not approve of her actions. But there is some amazing character growth in this story, which was refreshing.
My thanks to the author for providing a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes.
