    I decided to read the book because I liked the idea of the abused woman fighting back. However I really didn’t like the start of the book, this was partly because I knew what was coming and I just wanted to get through this as quickly as possible. Unfortunately I misread the book’s blurb and didn’t realise how much of the book was about the abuse and how long it would take for Natalia to start the fight back.

Unfortunately I misread the book’s blurb and didn’t realise how much of the book was about the abuse and how long it would take for Natalia to start the fight back. In the second half of the book Natalia has to take steps against ‘Zigic’, the problem was, it wasn’t very convincing and seemed very haphazard. It didn’t help that the construction of the story wasn’t great and a few times I had to go back to check I hadn’t missed something. At the very end of the book we begin to see glimpses of the kickass heroine, but she still did some fairly stupid things, perhaps I was being a bit unfair as she had only a little training and maybe she will be more ‘professional’ in the next book. In a moment of weakness I nearly gave the book three stars, but the few enjoyable moments were not enough to make the story more than OK.

    Wow, what a well put together story that made me shiver! Natalia wants a better life for herself than on her family's farm. Together with a friend from the village she goes to Italy to work as a waitress ..... at least, that's what they are promised. Instead, they travel to Turkey with a few young women and are sold to a man and forced into prostitution. Natalia does not lose her will to fight and looks for opportunities to escape. If her girlfriend is forced into an abortion and dies as a result Wow, what a well put together story that made me shiver! Natalia wants a better life for herself than on her family's farm. Together with a friend from the village she goes to Italy to work as a waitress ..... at least, that's what they are promised. Instead, they travel to Turkey with a few young women and are sold to a man and forced into prostitution. Natalia does not lose her will to fight and looks for opportunities to escape. If her girlfriend is forced into an abortion and dies as a result of blood loss, the limit has been reached for her. She manages to escape and she goes back to her family. She keeps looking over her shoulder, afraid of retaliation ...... and rightly so ...... her sister is kidnapped and Natalia will save her at all costs. How many women has this happened to? Trafficking in women is perhaps one of the largest "markets" that criminals engage in and earn a lot of money at the expense of women. Great to read how one of these women turns against these criminals and overcomes! Thank you for sharing this story. I highly recommend everyone to read this book. The power of a woman is clearly evident in this, despite everything being done to her.

    I quit reading this book given the author’s outdated and misogynistic description of women. Dialog between two young women, from Chapter One: “I thought you couldn’t stand him?”  Natalia tried not to raise her voice. “You know he’s a rapist, right?” “All I know is rumors, just like you.” “Wouldn’t you like to be raped by him?  It might not be so bad, eh?” Does the author really believe women would say this? It’s insulting, and when I’ve shown this dialog to multiple men and women they are horrifie I quit reading this book given the author’s outdated and misogynistic description of women.

A few responses: “Eww.” “What the actual heck?” “Why do men think women fantasize about being raped?” “What??? No!!” “Yikes!” “This author is clearly clueless and a complete idiot.” “It’s hard to believe someone would actually write this. It’s so gross.” “What?! Am I misreading this? Is this an actual sentence?” “Just no.”

    Holds your attention! Russia Girl is well-written, with a plot that zig-zags, while being believable in its setting. With sex slavery a real crime worldwide, one can empathize with the victim / heroine. Passages made my blood boil at times, so take your hypertension meds before sitting down to read it. So often used in reviews that it is almost meaningless, I must say that I read this at a much faster pace than normal... it really was hard to put down!

I found myself resolving to put the book down to do other tasks from my routine, only to pick it back up for "just one more chapter. By the way, chapters are short and have a focal point. Good job by Kenneth Rosenberg, the author. Try it... I think you will truly enjoy this one!

    Fast-paced and action-packed. I enjoyed it! Sad that this is a real thing for so many young women. Natasha is a country girl. Working with her family in their farm in Transnistria, she feels complete. Her friend Sonia does not so she insists she consider taking a job in the USA where she will be able to earn enough to help her parents. There’s even a travel-mother that will help them get there. A job is already guaranteed. After agreeing she takes off with another four girls on a boat to America. Fast-paced and action-packed. I enjoyed it!

    Human trafficking is a plague, it preys on vulnerable girls and turns their life into hell on earth. But sometimes, a girl refuses to submit, this is the story of one of them. Natalia, like so many before her, is seduced by the promise of a better life but soon realises that her dream will be forever shattered if she accepts her destiny. The author has created a credible character here, she is not a super heroine, she is a girl who decides to get her life back whatever the means.

    The story isn’t bad and I’m perfectly fine with suspending disbelief around Natalia’s transformation into an action hero. However, asking readers to believe that one of the trafficking victims manages to pay off her “debt” to the traffickers within a few months belies the hell that victims go through. The entire system is set up so that isn’t possible, or at least not for years. But my biggest complaint is that the editing is atrocious. Missing words, confusing sentences, and inconsistencies kep The story isn’t bad and I’m perfectly fine with suspending disbelief around Natalia’s transformation into an action hero.

    Justice Natalie lives the life of a hard working Russian farm girl until her best friend talks her into becoming a waitress abroad. The dream is to move to Italy, work hard, and send desperately needed money back home. The dream becomes a nightmare when they are sold into sexual slavery. Natalie escapes, but pays a terrible price for her freedom. Now, she is the predator. Well written and edited, this book will keep you up reading into the night.

    This one deserves a read. I liked the plot, the writing style and the simplicity. Natalia is one simple village girl who is lured into a “waitress job” and ultimately forced into prostitution. She escapes the building by murdering one of the guards. And now that her normal life has been ruined, she wants revenge. She just does not tolerate the feeling that someone might just come looking for her and punish her for breaking the pride. She needs to save her family. Liked it!

    Reality for many Unlucky Eastern European Girls The novel is very realistic and and factual for unfortunate Eastern European girls. If you have ever visited these parts of the world, you realize the unfortunate plight of these girls. I am sure they wish there were more actual Natalya's to safe them.

    Truth be told Truth is always painful but this story tells us the truth of a horrible situation going on all around the world . The authors writing takes us to the story line without being vulgar . Natalie story of escape and justice happens to very few . Thanks for the informative walk on the darker side of life.

    A village girl turned vigilante. The first in the series, introduces us to Natalia Nicolaeva, who like many other girls from the erstwhile USSR gets trafficked to Turkey. The story is about how she escapes the clutches of the underground who hold her and how she gets her revenge. It is on the lines of the Millennium series of Stieg Larson, but does not stand up to the mark. A decent read.

    Fun But, not the girl with a dragon tattoo. If that was a 10, this is a 2. Character, style, pacing. And, the main character is not from Moldova. That changes from the first book. Poor consistency.

    Revenge Great main character that moves the plot. Horrors of human trafficking shown.Reader must try to balance the main character response against that horror to justify finishing the book.

    A quick read with lots happening. Tired of living in a small village two girls are lured to Italy they think... end up in Istanbul in a bordello. The way Natalia starts killing people is a bit not too true. No real anxiety, no regrets. It was also a lesson in arms.

    Not sure how to review I found the storyline mostly engaging, however, the writing at times was just somewhat boring and I skipped over paragraphs. Ultimately, I wanted to know what happened to the heroine so read to the end. Concept good.
