One is a twelve-year-old blessed with a gift she does not know she has, the other, a seventeen-year-old proficient in the methods of psychological warfare. Along the way they encounter a handsome young man, and his family who are also looking to start a new life away from their terrorist state.

Zahra and Aalia are two extremely strong girls. Zahra is only twelve in this novel but she is one of the most mature twelve year old girls I have ever read about. Unfortunately, this maturity comes from the horrors she has witnessed that, in my opinion, no child should be subjected to. These girls take the oppressive and abusive life they have and run from it. They demonstrate bravery in the face of fear, but such desperation to escape almost seemed to push them over the edge at times. It was sad to see the crimes they were capable of committing due to what they had experienced. They almost seemed desensitized at times. I wanted them to be free but I couldn't help but worry about how their actions would affect them in the future.

With regard to the plot, I was immediately sucked into the story and it was a wild and crazy ride. The story was fast-paced and I was biting my nails as I read, waiting to see what happened next. These girls were never safe and never able to feel comfortable for more than a moment or two. As a reader, I found myself hoping beyond hope that they would finally be able to break free. I read this book in one day because I couldn't bear to put it down for more than a few minutes at a time.

As to the end... well, I had to read the last page three times before I realized that there was going to be another book and that there really was no end. It just kind of drops off. That was the hardest part of the story. I wanted resolution but I am forced to wait.

The Terrorist's Daughters gives the reader a glimpse into what it might be like to live as the children of a terrorist, living in fear, seeing and hearing the unthinkable and in this case, hating it and wishing there were something they could do to stop it. This is a fiction story and it is meant to be an adventure with some all too realistic undertones. There were some over the top moments but they went with they story well. I will definitely read the next one to see where these brave girls end up and hope that their devil of a father will eventually get what is coming to him. ( )

Right off the bat I felt a strong connection to the sisters. I was pulled in by the action and intrigue within the first two chapters.

I felt anger at the mistreatment of these young girls at the hands of their abusive father and drug addicted mother, who does nothing to protect her daughters. (and in fact helps with the abuse herself, thanks to a branch from the Tamarind tree in the front yard.) The sisters are both strong in their own way, but Zahra is the one that shines for me. She is the youngest (12 years old) and the only one to step up and confront their father for his abusive ways. She is a little spit fire! After she and Aalia run away from home, Aalia gets bit by something in the river and it's up to Zahra to leave her sister behind in the cave and go back to the house they just ran away from- knowing their father is looking for them with a shotgun in his hands. But at only 12 years old, she does this bravely and is able to get her hands on the medicine needed for Aalia and also the guns and cash in the safe. While on her way out, she decides to steal her father's Mercedes to drive all the stuff back to the cave. And this is just the beginning of the wild and crazy and dangerous adventure that these girls find themselves on! Their travels will take them through Afghanistan, Dubai, Mexico and the United States. They meet many people along the way and learn even more about themselves. It is a riveting story from beginning to end. And the plot twists and cliffhanger at the end will leave you begging for the next book to hurry up and come out. I also have to say that I really really want to hear more about Lili's character! She is smart and crafty! This is a book about FEMALE EMPOWERMENT and I LOVE THAT!!

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to have an adventure...even if its from your living room or bedroom or wherever you read a book! If you love a thrilling and fun novel with strong female leads....this is a book you will want to look into. You will not be disappointed! I anxiously await the two future books in this series!!! ( )
