This is a down right in the dirty world gritty tale. I almost had to stop reading it myself because it was just so descriptive I didn’t want to know this stuff was still around. But it is and I finished the book just to find out how it all ended. There are no veils to protect your mind from what it is about to read and not hidden truths. Everything is in black and white and thrown in your face for you to take notice. Parts are even bone chilling to know what people live with and through. And some don’t live through. From the first page you are sucked into the world of Drugs, Abuse, Bad Choices and revenge.
Squirm as you might upon reading the visceral opening to Children of the Enemy, you cannot deny it thrusts you into a story that won’t let you go. Each street-unique character is larger than life, and each has a story to tell, and often their soul to sell. This plot moves, it tumbles and rushes you with it, atop one big wave of good, direct writing to the crescendo ending.
Children of the Enemy zips along at a quick clip due to a visually graphic, tension-filled plot that kept me turning “just one more page.” But it’s the juicy characters that make the book sizzle. So many bad guys are featured that I found myself rooting for the least barbaric among them. Even the few good guys are willing to bend their morals and the law. A bit of sex; a cast of miscreants motivated by greed, power, and vendettas; and a whole lot of violence–readers who like their novels roughed up and riddled with grittiness, will find it all in Children of the Enemy.
