The Next Target: A Review

After her husband is murdered, Austia continues his mission: leading Muslims to the truth of Jesus. She starts through English classes, and when one of her students who converts to Christianity is killed, Austia becomes the next target. Unsure who to trust, will Austia be able to save herself and the young mother who needs her help?

This book is full of suspense as readers know who Austia can trust even though she's still in the dark. The action was fast, and the characters well-developed. The idea of public prayer calls was an interesting one, and the entire book was a spring board for discussion about religion in America. 

I don't know much about the Islam religion or its culture, but it seemed the author was knowledgeable about the religion and compassionate towards the women bound its clutches, which gave the story authenticity. 
At times, the author's feelings came through the pages as a little preachy as Austia lectured those around her about helping the women. 

Overall, it's an engaging read. I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.
