Mee-Kyong has done a lot of things in her life and to be honest she doesn’t really regret too much of it. Growing up in a North Korean camp didn’t exactly offer her a promising future and what she has done got her as far this. But resorting to murder? Well that’s a different story entirely. As she flees to freedom – or what she had hoped would result in freedom – guilt wracks her mind as she struggles to push it away. Extra work in the field of survival comes when she meets a girl whose childhood has ended far too soon. Can the pair make it just a little bit longer in order to reach true freedom?
As action-packed and riveting as The Beloved Daughter, fans of Alana Terry’s talent with the pen will not be disappointed with the second installment of an exceptional series. Though, be warned, this is a not a tale for the lighthearted. It’s gritty and at times a little tough to read as Alana examines the different forms of slavery. I was surprised by the different turns the story took as well as the ending. The ending alone wishes that I already had the third book in my hands and flipping through to find who makes their peace and who doesn’t. Another job well done.
