Justice with a Vengeance
Could you give up your freedom to protect your friends?
When international fugitive Sydney Rye turns herself over to authorities in order to protect the vigilante network she inspired, her freedom depends on helping Homeland Security shift the tides in a war for "hearts and minds."
Sydney Rye is tasked with the perfect assignment; recruit female fighters to take on jihadists. Being killed by a woman is the only thing the extremists fear because they believe it bars their entrance to Heaven. But when the director who enlisted Sydney Rye is killed, and the deal she made is scrapped, Sydney and Blue are left in a war zone, hunted by both the U.S. government and jihadists.

The Sydney Rye series has been downloaded over a million times. Recommended for adults who love brave female protagonists, dogs, and action packed series that you can't put down until you've read them all. If you have trouble with the f-bomb, violence or sex (not graphic but out of wedlock).. then you shouldn't start this series...it's just not your thing.
Emily Kimelman fan
This book doesn't disappoint. I envy the reader who is just discovering this author and can binge read the series like a Netflix junkie. It's hard to put down. There is another wild ride of adventure in this story with complex characters, a twisted story and the clever balance of bravery and humility. I think I will go back to the first book and reread the series. Thank you Emily K. for the wonderful read.
Girl With a Gun by Emily Kimelman
Book 8 was the best!! I was given an advance copy to help clean up the manuscript's typo's and formatting errors. It was an impossible task. Who could worry about that while Sydney and a fantastic new cast were getting more and more enmeshed in an international attempt to breakdown prejudice against women? I did go back and find a few typo's, but mostly I enjoyed the breakneck pace of this exciting story! You will too!
The girl with the gun
For review, recapping the novel's specific events is unnecessary but the reader should know that the story is intense, violent and emotional. In "The Girl with the Gun," the main character's past angst has become vocational searching worthy of her considerable, developed gifts, seeing that she is now an unworthy heroine among real heroines. She seeks validation, encouragement and direction from these women already firm in THEIR choices: necessary, but embraced, nationalistic patriotism and protection. Her character development is well presented; from sincere service and tragic choices, to wrestling with the reality of political compromises for the power to succeed in her vision to awaken, recruit and empower women oppressed by violence and war.
Lots of general statements there, but the author actually carries the reader through this milieu with constant staccato writing, expressing the pressure of action, danger, direction, loyalty and betrayal in fluid Syrian-Turkish-Iraqi conflicts in August of 2016. Being male I hesitated to review this novel focusing on female equality. I respect Ms. Kimelman for her efforts and recognize that all of her novels have led Rye to this statement; the closing leaves the reader and Sydney Rye/Blue available for more.
