Book two, Zenobia - Challenging a Legend deals with human trafficking. Read below to learn why the author felt it was an important subject to shine a light on.
"The Slave Trade -
Slavery has been significant part of the human experience for thousands of years. Still, it is disheartening to see the depths into which some slavers have plunged, to the shame and degradation of themselves, and the terrible suffering of their victims.
An especially heinous, that is, shockingly evil, example of this is the sexual slave trade. Even worse, it frequently involves children, the most defenseless members of human society.
Some readers may be disturbed that the sexual slave trade appears in this book. Good! We should all be upset that such a "trade," better called an abomination, ever existed and still exist. My purpose in including it is to shine a spotlight on the problem! The more of us who are educated about this crime, the harder it will be for the criminals and evildoers to operate freely, and the tougher it will be for them to get off with a mere judicial slap on the wrist when they are caught.
Such slavers have, of course, brought themselves under a curse from Almighty God, and He will surely deal out their full punishment in due time. Meanwhile, it would be nice to see more justice in this world.
History reports that Zenobia fought for justice. In this book she does so in two ways. First, she tries to free the oppressed. Second, she plots to punish the slavers. She will continue her crusade in future books in the series." - Russ Wallace, Author of Zenobia - Challenging a Legend
It's time to break the chains... be like Zenobia in her fight for justice!
