Book Review: "Deliver Me From Evil"


 "Deliver Me From Evil" by Kathi Macias, was by far the most riveting story I've ever read for young people. I must be honest and say I had to go into the story slowly, digesting it bit by bit. This topic of modern day slavery is something I have heard very little about. It's heartbreaking, we already know, that so many children around the world turn up missing and some end up slaves in our modern times.

I felt for all the characters, especially the slave girls. Mara, the tough one, Chanthra, the one willing to reach out and help another slave girl, and Lawan, who's faith in God was unwavering. She made me smile.

I rooted for the hero toward the end, so was not disappointed.

I'm glad Kathi has a sequel about Mara, as a free woman.

Anyone wanting to know about modern day slavery, without the sordid details (Kathi handled that especially well), you'll want to read "Deliver Me From Evil."

Thank you, Kathi, for writing a much needed book that will surely make a difference in our world.


  1. Thank you so much for the thoughtful and positive review, my friend. It was a tough subject to tackle, but a necessary one. Together we can make a difference. Abolition!

  2. And the people said, "Amen!"

    I never in my wildest dreams thought this could happen in modern life.

    God bless you, friend!
