“Operation Firebrand: Crusade” by Jeff Gerke
Get ready for a harrowing read!  Author Jeff Gerke does not sugarcoat the horrid situation in southern Sudan.
When it comes to the attention of Eloise Webster that slavery is alive in Sudan, she deploys her team of six as soon as she can.  Their mission is straightforward: rescue the villagers of Akwer Nhom, who were recently taken from their homes to become the slaves of evil men.  The team soon discovers they can trust very few people.  Although they pose as well diggers, the Sudanese people are suspicious of the Americans.  And Jason and his team have a very short time to complete their mission.  But it soon becomes apparent to them that rescuing the villagers isn’t enough.  They need to put the slave trade out of business.  This decision ups the danger even more, making it doubtful they will all survive.
I understand why the author didn’t water down the horrendous conditions the villagers in southern Sudan live under.  He needed to rock readers out of their complacency.  Like the Firebrand team, I wanted to make a difference and bring hope to these people who live in fear every day.  I cared about them immediately.  And I was cheering on the team as they worked through their mission … and then some!
I also enjoyed the love triangle of Jason, Trieu, and Rachel.  That man definitely has a decision to make, which won’t be easy.  They are both lovely young women.
I guarantee this heart-pounding novel will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I've been a Christian since 1991. I enjoy Beth Moore Bible studies and books about using your gift for God. I've been writing since high school. It is what I came to this earth to do! I also love reading books. I'm never without one! It is my wish to inspire others through my writing.
