Review: The Disillusioned by D. J. Williams

The Disillusioned by D. J. Williams

Description:
A mother's suicide threatens to destroy a family legacy. Her sons, Sam and Daniel, are forced to leave their comfortable worlds behind and search for a woman they believe can unlock the secrets that have remained hidden. They are propelled into separate journeys from Los Angeles to the heart of the Zambezi, where they are forced to confront a man known as Die Duiwel, the Devil. On their adventures they will find themselves in a place where death is one breath away, where thousands of children are disappearing into the darkness, and where the woman they are searching for is on the hunt for revenge. When they stand face-to-face with the forgotten slaves of Africa, they will fight to redeem what has been lost.


My Thoughts:
Starts with the point of view of an old woman in a mental institution thinking over her life. I was drawn in right away, wondering what secrets she is keeping that are causing her so much pain. The focus shifts to her sons and there is plenty of mystery, intrigue, action, suspense, and more. It is thought-provoking, showing that there is a difference between faith and religion and also shining a light on the subject of human trafficking. There was much more here than I was expecting. Kept me reading and wondering and occasionally biting my nails. I recommend this one if you like a book that keeps you guessing.

My Rating: ****
Steam Factor: !
*Notes: Violence, blood, descriptions of rape (including minors), human trafficking
