Review

Ok ok!!!!! Annie Douglass Lima sent me one of her books!!!!!! I had read some of her books last year, but didn’t post this one because it’s not kid-friendly. (And at the time my website was an ONLY kid-friendly website; but now I’m doing teens books too!) “Thank you soooooo much Ms. Annie!!!!!”

Anyways, this book is about a slave who wants to free his sister. It is very sweet and soooooooo good! But there is talk about girl slaves being mistreated. It is mentioned multiple times, but not like inappropriately. It’s just mentioned.

Over all, I LOVE THIS BOOK SOOOOO MUCH!!!! This is a must read, and I highly suggest it too teens! And I am totally buying the rest of the series!!!! “Ms. Annie, you are amazing!!!!! And I love your books!!!!!” -The Young Llama Reader.

Pros

  • So heartwarming!!!
  • A very good book for teens
  • Awesome!!!!!

Cons

  • Lots of mention of slaves

Bensin, a teenage slave and martial artist, is desperate to see his little sister freed. But only victory in the Krillonian Empire’s most prestigious tournament will allow him to secretly arrange for Ellie’s escape. Dangerous people are closing in on her, however, and Bensin is running out of time. With his one hope fading quickly away, how can Bensin save Ellie from a life of slavery and abuse?
