Anissa's Redemption: A Young Woman's Saga from War in Syria to Love in NY Continues (The Syrian Virgin Series Book 2)

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected twists and turns in the plot, 11 April 2015
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving and gripping story, 11 April 2015
In this moving and gripping story, Zack Love has managed to raise
awareness about the genocide of Christians in the Middle East in a
story with drama, romance, suspense, and even some occasional comic
relief. The novel is refreshingly original yet informational: beyond
Mideast history and the persecution of Middle East Christians, the
book also explores topics like human psychology, trust, PTSD,
intimacy, and other weighty topics of that sort. If you want a lighter
read, I'd recommend his romantic comedy ("Sex in the Title"). But this
book will make you cry, think, learn, and maybe even change how you
see the world. Best book I've read in years. Can't wait for the
sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Read Psychological Thriller!, 14 July 2012
The Last Israelis is one of those provocative and haunting books that stays with you long after you're done reading it. There was something really powerful about the way it all came together. I loved the role of dreams in the story -- they were incredibly vivid and disturbingly surreal.

I'm not really into military fiction -- I tend to read psychological thrillers books. But there was so much psychological complexity -- from the way the characters interact with each other and with their own past/memories -- that it made for a fascinating read. I also really enjoyed the way different layers of a character's personality or personal story were revealed as the story progressed. I have a feeling I'm going to read the book again, because it's the type of novel where you learn more about the story, the characters, and the structure each time you pick it up again. I strongly recommend this book!
