Special Delivery by Kathi Macias

Kathi has done it again.  She's written another superb book.  I would definitely say this is a book that will keep you on the edge.  It is a powerful story and not for the faint at heart.  You really see behind the scenes of what it looks like to be sold into sex trafficking.  I haven't met a Macias book that I haven't like yet.  I have been following Kathi close since the start of my reading books for reviews in 2008.  She was one of my first authors to become acquainted with (and it was through Pump Up Your Books even) up until that time I'd never heard of her.  Now, when a book title comes across my screen with her name I jump at it.  Is that a fan or what?  This second book in her freedom series is no exception.  It is WONDERFUL!   I would highly recommend reading the first book, Deliver me from Evil,  so you can see where the characters have come from; however, I don't think you 'd be lost if you don't.  I can't wait til book three comes out.  You may visit Kathi on her web site or at one of her blogs:  Easy Writer and  her devotional blog.

In book two of the “Freedom” series, readers find Mara fighting against her attraction to Bible college student Jonathan Flannery, even while wrestling with risking her own precarious safety to become involved in the rescue of another girl who is pregnant and desperately wants to escape her captors and save her own life, as well as her child’s.

Halfway around the world in a brothel in Thailand, a young girl named Lawan is rescued with the promise of being reunited with her little sister who was adopted by an interracial couple in the States, friends of Jonathan’s family. Special Delivery cover

Meanwhile, Jefe—Mara’s uncle, who held her as a sex slave in his brothel in San Diego for years—seeks revenge for Mara’s testimony that put him behind bars for life. Will his underworld connections be successful in kidnapping and killing the girl who believes she has finally won her freedom?

Thanks for the lovely review of Kathi's latest. I'm glad you enjoyed this one too.

I don't think readers would be lost if they read only this one either, but Mara's story is so powerful it's good to start at the beginning.

Oh, and good news, Kathi will have two books coming out this fall: the last book in this trilogy and another Christmas book. I'll let you know when we have confirmation on those.

Thanks again for reviewing Special Delivery. I hope your readers check it out.
