    A Brilliant and Beautifully Written Book!

    Just when I thought that Zack Love had written his most impressive novel to date when he wrote "The Syrian Virgin", he pleasantly surprises me with “Anissa’s Redemption!” I had such a book hangover afterward that it took awhile for me to come out of my literary fog. Many times when a book I really love ends with a cliffhanger, I find myself hanging onto those last few words and images in hopes that the sequel will be written soon after so that I won’t forget all of its excitement and the feelings the writer has evoked. I worry, too, that with all the anticipation and expectation leading up to the sequel, in the end, it will fall short and leave me disappointed with the series. This was DEFINITELY not the case with Zack Love’s sequel to “The Syrian Virgin” called “Anissa’s Redemption.” In fact, it was so much better than I ever imagined it would be and it did NOT disappoint! In “Anissa’s Redemption”, I loved how (seemingly) effortless it was for Zack to pick up where he ended in “The Syrian Virgin” and how from the very beginning, the plot and all his characters continued to evolve and develop throughout. Zack’s intelligent writing and extensive research also continued to paint an accurate and compelling portrayal of the religious struggles caused by Syrian Civil War. But what I loved most about “Anissa’s Redemption was his brilliant ability to peel away more and more of Anissa, Michael and Julien’s "layers" to reveal their true selves and their darkest secrets before the readers’ eyes and not only make them appear more human, but more endearing as well. In writing "Anissa’s Redemption", Zack created an exciting and quite an emotional roller coaster ride and with every twist and turn of events, he takes his readers through many surprising developments and defining moments! This book was THAT awesome and definitely a must read!

    Unexpected twists and turns in the plot

    This was a breathtaking sequel to book one, with many unexpected twists and turns in the plot. The ongoing threat to Christians and other religious minorities posed by violent Islamists like ISIS is skillfully woven into the story, as with the first book, but the sequel brings readers deeper into the relationships and psychology of the main characters. Issues of trust and truth loom large in this book, as the biggest secrets and mysteries established in book one are unlocked. Highly recommended!

    Brilliant!!

    The exciting conclusion to Zack Love's The Syrian Virgin, picks up exactly where The Syrian Virgin ends! After nagging poor Zack and sending him messages WHYYYYYYYYY and just pure frustration regarding the mentally and emotionally head case read this story is......*slumps back in my bed and sighs* Two men, decisions.....hard decisions having to be made! Julien Playboy Billionaire unreachable and all alphaish.....or dodgy sounding Michael ready to die for you, being the hero of the story? (Myself and a girlfriend discussed at lengths The Syrian Virgin and whose team we were for.....TEAM JULIEN!)! *coughs* In all seriousness, its not just about Anissa's decision to choose but BIGGEST emphasis of the story is the three main characters and their struggles with not only helping whats left of Anissa's family flee Syria but Christian oppression in Syria as well. It covers tough subjects psychologically and traumatic and I guess love triangle that is both complex and highly frustrating emotionally every page turn! I was getting so frustrated with the emotional roller coaster I was yelling at my kindle! LOVE LOVE this series! Its brilliantly written, highly charged and defintely once you start....you'll read it non-stop! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!

    Blown Away!!

    I'm going to start this by saying that although you get an overview of The Syrian Virgin at the beginning of the book I would advise you to buy the book and read it first so you get the full story, there is no way the overview does the story justice. I was so surprised by this book, the multiple twists and turns really had me gasping and on the edge of my seat, I honestly never in a million years could have predicted any of it! The wait for this book has been almost unbearable for me, I am in no way, shape or form a fan of cliffhangers... I hate them, they are the bane of my existence so not knowing what happens next with these characters has been bordering on torturous, but I have to say the wait was so worth it. I quite simply adore this series... The characters, the locations, the trauma, everything about it is so incredibly spot on that I can't imagine it being any other way and if I'm honest I think I may have fallen even more in love with these characters! Anissa's Redemption was the perfect ending to an amazing series.

    Amazing ride

    How do I put into words how much a story affected me that it left me speechless. I got this as a ARC. Needless to say I couldn't put it down. Some wise person compared this as a roller coaster ride and I really have to agree. It had me holding on at moments and raising my hands feeling the wind in others. Mr. Love has taken present day news of the Middle East and educated readers with terrifying actions and mix in a love story. He keeps you interested with historical events while keeping in tune with the lives of his characters. To me this is not only about suffering but it is also about love and trust. How far would anyone go to lay it all on the line knowing it could all be taken away? Could we trust someone with the knowledge that could destroy your life? And could you live with yourself knowing something so terrifying that you question who that person really was? Well this is what these characters faced. And Mr. Love wrote with such feeling that you lived each moment along the way. In the first book I didn't like the character Michael but at the end of AR I really learned to like and respect him..... Thank you very much Mr. Love.... At the beginning I told you this book left me speechless and here I have run my mouth. But I had to share how this book touched me. It is the best so far. This series will remain with me. And i highly recommend it to you.
