Book Review-Shatter Proof: A Sonia Amon, MD Medical Thriller Bk 1- Judith Lucci

Friday, February 7, 2020

This is a page turner--be prepared to not want to stop reading it until the very end--but there is a heck of a cliff hanger and I went ahead and ordered the second in this series--it was that good!

Sonia witnessed her Mom get beat mercilessly by her Syrian father who was --well a terrorist! They escaped and made it to America--Sonia was recaptured and was raised in her father's house. She knew she would escape when she turned 18-and she did. She is now an MD and was a major in the US Army. She hates her father but loves the country where she was born and really wants to help the civilians caught in the middle.

She is asked to go to Syria to help construct medical facilities--which she does. Her father has never stopped trying to get her back and somehow finds out that she is back there.

You will read about some of the things that the people endured---horrendous.

They build a medical facility and then Sonia is somehow abducted by her father--her Mom had been abducted from the US at the same time.

Your heart will go out to the civilians who have to endure hardships and fear every day of their lives.

I don't want to say any more or I might give away the whole plot! But this book is definitely for those who like horror and terror-with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure. You will feel like you are right there with Sonia as she lives through this nightmare.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

"For me, Sonia Amon, my first questions hold the spirit and security of my heart, but the second question holds more hatred than I thought myself capable of feeling - Hatred and Fear..."

Newly retired Army physician and War College Professor Sonia Amon returns to war-torn Syria where she plans to open several medical clinics. Syrian-born Sonia possesses the cultural competency, appearance and language skills that make her an ideal operative in the Middle East. Her medical expertise and knowledge of the surrounding mountainous region adds to her strengths. But life is cheap, and her enemies are plentiful.

Danger awaits her outside of Aleppo and follows her everywhere she travels in the country.

When terror strikes, it’s shocking!

"You can’t put this book down…"
"A scary, dark and disturbing portrayal of terrorism" from USA Today and WSJ best selling author Judith Lucci.
"Thrilling! The perfect blend of action, adventure, medical knowledge, and mystery with a touch of romance."

In the modern, time anti-aging cosmetology has reached the results which seemed to be unbelievable not a long time before. There are plenty of anti-aging methods such as injection of botox, hyaluronic acid, cosmetic threads, and so on.

But anti-aging is not only about treatment of the appearance signs of aging such as wrinkles, flabby and dry skin, etc.growth hormone pen It is about the whole body rejuvenation and it even affects how we feel. Such things should be treated from the inside in the Anti-Aging Clinics.
