SILK ROAD (Code Raven, #6)SILK ROAD by Lynda Filler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Silk Road by Lynda Filler is the sixth book in the Code Raven series and is an action pack, breathe taking story.

The story is fast paced and full of action and traverses through the world with the story, the novel starts with the team enjoying downtime but Himanish is never off the clock and when he finds something happening to young children the team shifts into gear. The team have to put all their skills to the test and find out who is behind the human kidnappings.

You always know that these characters will delve into the mission and put 100% to uncover the people behind these despicable crimes. With the thrill of each twist and turn this book will have you not be able to put this story down. The style of writing keeps you enthralled to the last word and the topics brought up in this story were hard hitting and amazing to read.

I recommend this series and this book may just be my favourite at the moment.

Silk Road (Code Raven Series Book 6) by Lynda Filler – Review by Michelle Mulvey

SILK ROAD (Code Raven, #6)SILK ROAD by Lynda Filler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Silk Road by Lynda Filler is book 6 on the Code Raven Series. I have read a few books in the series and have enjoyed reading them.

The books are fast paced and action packed. Silk Road is about children being kidnapped and either sold or used for prostitution. Luke and Luci are spending a few days in his private sanctuary in the Maldives. He has a family who stays there and does the upkeep for him. When their 2 young children are taken in the middle of the night, Luke knows he must act quickly.

Meanwhile in another area, Zach’s good friend Mike
needed help. They were all together in BUDS Training many years ago and kept in touch. Mikes daughter ran away at a young age and now she is reaching out to him because her son has been taken. He’s 13 years old and he is her life. When she calls Mike for help, she knows he’s her only chance. Mike and His daughter Katie have not spoken for about 13 years and when she finally reaches out she tells him she says “Dad, I need your help and bring your friends.”

Children are being taken all over the world but the raven group cannot seem to catch them. Things don’t add up every time they try.

Another teenager is taken but the authorities think it is an ala Kachuu which is a meeting of a bride and groom. However the parents know that is not the case.

Will the Raven Group be able to save these children and reunite them with their families while putting an end to the Russian Mob or will they be to late?

5 out of 5 stars
Silk Road in the sixth book in the Code Raven series written by Lynda Filler. I read the prequel on book one and two but missed books three-five so I will be going back to read those books because this is an amazing series. Ms. Filler is an amazing author and this series is dead on in the evil that’s going on in this world. The characters are well written and there banter is amazing. They are not related by blood and come from all across the world even have some difference in beliefs but there is one thing you can count on in this story/series they are a family and want to help save the world.
A new Silk Road train stretches from the eastern shores of Yiwu China to London, England. Its precious cargo is not what’s written on the manifest.
A former Navy SEAL gets a terrifying message from his estranged daughter. “I’m desperate! I need your help, Dad. Bring your friends!”
When two young children are abducted in the middle of the night from Raven’s sanctuary in the Maldives, Luci, Luke, and the Raven Group will stop at nothing to get them back.
A female teenager in Kyrgyzstan is reported missing by tearful peasants. Has she become one of many kidnapped brides? Or is something far more frightening going on? The corrupt authorities ignore the parents’ pleas for help.
We get to see the gang from the Raven group what they do best saving lives.
Highly recommend this story/series…..

Silk Road (Code Raven 6) by Lynda Filler
4 Stars

Another action filled adventure in the Code Raven series. This is book six and this time the Raven Group is trying to save the world from a sex trafficking ring. Between China, Kyrgyzstan, London and the United States, we travel the world again. With the help of Himanesh, they locate the whereabouts of the missing children. It’s personal once again when two of the children were kidnapped from Luke’s personal hideaway in the Maldives. It is a fast paced book that will have you racing towards the end. I was happy to see Luke and Luci trying to take a vacation even though it got cut short. It would be nice to see them open their hearts and jump into a relationship.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m still catching my breath. This action packed thriller had me white knuckles for most of its pages. The characters are strong and engaging. The author does a fantastic job drawing the reader immediately in and having them quickly become invested in the fate of each character. It was fast paced and richly detailed. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will gladly recommend it to others.

Silk Road (Code Raven Series Book #6) by Lynda Filler – Review by Angela Hayes

SILK ROAD (Code Raven, #6)SILK ROAD by Lynda Filler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

“What do you know about the Silk Road?”
“Are you referring to the old Silk Road trading routes? If you are, the Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes connecting the East and West which for centuries was central to the cultural interaction between them. The Silk Road also refers to both the terrestrial and the maritime routes connecting Asia with the Middle East and southern Europe. Today, of course, it’s the new China Railway Corp route to England. It will cut ground shipping to half the time of the maritime routes. The cost of shipping goods into Europe will fall considerably making Chinese exports/imports even more viable to its trading partners in Russia and Europe.”
“Hmmm.”
“Why do you ask?”
“I heard Ivanov’s men talking about the Silk Road. I’m not sure of the significance, but it’s too much of a coincidence to ignore. Let me search around and see what I come up with.”

Silk Road is the sixth book in the Code Raven series by Lynda Filler. As we have discovered in the previous book/s, this series centres around the Raven Group, which is a top-secret, special ops team who help to keep the world a safer place- and the series chronicles the action-packed missions they embark on. This latest mission may just be the most challenging one yet.
The story starts with Luke whisking Samaar(Luci) away to the Maldives for a much-needed break and Zach headed to Washington Dc after a call from his friend Mike, a former Navy SEAL buddy, who needs his help. Himanish is in Geneva doing what he does best, keeping tabs on everything, and starts to put some worrying pieces together. Children are going missing from all around the world, mostly from remote areas, leaving their families devastated. So, when these abductions hit closer to home for members of the team- Luke Raven will do everything in his power to get to the bottom of it all and return the children to their families. This truly is an international mission, taking the team from Canada to Paris, The Maldives, Geneva, Washington DC, China, Tel Aviv, London, and even to Kyrgyzstan in central Asia as they try to uncover who’s been behind a wave of human kidnapping. The team pulls together, digging deep, using all their skills, contacts and networks to follow the trail- as the case becomes more complicated than they ever imagined.
We catch up with characters we know and love, as well as meeting some new ones. I love that each book in this series allows me to get to know the (recurring) characters a little bit better each time. I love watching the relationship between Luke and Samaar/Luci (and adorable Alice) develop more in this book. The little bit of romance and some touching and tender moments helped to lighten the darker topics covered in the storyline.
This is definitely one of my favourites of the series, so far. The story was an action-packed adventure, with dramatic developments, danger, abduction, intrigue, suspense, human trafficking, drug cartels, life and death situations, high stakes risk, covert ops, high-tech gadgets, social and political issues, camaraderie, friendship, bonds, romance, depravity, heart-aching situations, and so much more
I am really enjoying this series, which just seems to get better and better with each new instalment! I am really looking forward to my next adventure with the Raven Group!

Thank you, Ms. Filler!

I loved seeing the Raven group back and the adventures they get themselves into. This is a fast moving story that kept me on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what will happen next or if the group will find the missing teenager. This story is full corruption, suspense and mystery. Is there a link between the missing brides and the missing children? Will the group be able to find them before it is too late? I highly recommend this book to find out if the innocent can be saved.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Abducted: Code Raven 2, by Lynda Filler, is a thrilling suspense. Though the books are short, they flow easily from one to the next with a captivating story and cast of characters. The action within Abducted is fine tuned and drives the story forward. The high speed anticipation that the author pushes is a high thrilled ride that quickly passes by. The series continues to capture my imagination along with the wonderful dialogue/conversations that occur between the dimensional characters.

Abducted by Lynda Filler is the next instalment in her Code Raven suspense series that will keep you at the edge of your chair and makes you go and check the writer’s site to see when the next instalment is coming!
