Synopsis: Born in Chicago, Illinois, three sisters are uprooted and brought to Pakistan, after the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001. After becoming oppressed and abused by their radicalized father and drug-sedated mother, two of the girls decide to run away from home and soon they discover their inner selves. 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. Their travels takes them to Afghanistan, Dubai, Mexico and the United States, leaving a chaotic but interesting trail behind.
Developing a family among a group of outcasts, including a young Asian girl who is prolific in computer hacking, their adventures continue with the girls making daring escapes from authorities, and fighting Al Qaeda extremists working for their father. The Terrorist’s Daughter all leads to a dramatic conclusion revolving around love, faith, family, and the potential destruction of an entire city.
My review: This was such an amazing read! I finished this in about 2 hours because I could not put it down. There was so much action and adventure through the whole story. From the very beginning we are thrust on this chase where this terrorist’s daughters are running from their father because they are afraid he will kill them. It goes a little deeper than that, but that’s the main gist of it.
Basically the entire story is like a high speed chase where these two girls are running from their terrorist father and all of his henchmen. While some of the situations were a little far-fetched I still immensely enjoyed the story and I hope there will be a second one coming out because the ending was a bit of a cliff-hanger.
I also really enjoyed the writing style which was simple to understand, yet quite complex in the way the story was woven. I also liked the switching viewpoints, even though it did not continue through the entirety of the story. I quickly felt for these characters and can’t wait to read about the next part of their adventure!
