SILK ROAD (Code Raven #6) by Lynda Filler – Review by Chantelle Smith

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

Code Raven: Silk Road is book 6 in this series from author Lynda Filler. Once again she has proven how captivating her storylines and characters are and I can’t wait to see what else is to come.

Lynda Filler has continued to prove how much better each of these reads can be. Silk Road is thrilling, action-packed and full of twists and turns that left you wondering what was going to happen next and left you wanting more. I was totally captivated and entranced by this read and couldn’t put it down.

The characters in which Lynda has created are relatable, real and you can’t help but want to find out more. I like that every book has a different storyline, yet all relate to the same characters, we get to read about old characters and new characters which keeps this book even more enjoyable. My only issue this time was jumping ahead and missing books but with that being said I didn’t feel lost within the story it flowed seamlessly.

This is a brilliant captivating story that is mentally visual in all aspects of the story. Being a quick read you never feel as though the story is rushed you get just the right amount of story, action – and it doesn’t feel as though everything is crammed in to get to the end of the book.

I can’t wait to see what else is to come from this series and just how much better this author stories can get – she continues to prove how incredibly captivating and riveting her books are and how each one connects you more to the characters involved! This is a series I highly recommend not to be missed!

5 Stars

Well I’m not sure how it happened but I skipped a few books in this series and I’m not happy about that. I love this series, I love the storylines in each of the books and the writing of these stories is simply spot on.

I have become fully invested in these characters and The Raven Group and each part has me falling harder for many of them. We got to meet a few new ones in this installment and many were new to me because as I said I’ve skipped ahead quite a bit. I find myself working right alongside these people during these dangerous missions and am wore out by the time I’m done reading. I love Luke and Luci and love how their story continues to play out yet never really gets resolved. I have to say this one is my favorite so far but I reserve the right to change my mind as I get caught up, and I will get caught up, and I highly recommend this series, but don’t do what I did, read them all in order, they all just seem to build on each other and I hope this series goes on for awhile because I absolutely love reading this author’s work, she has a way with her words and I know when I pick a book up I need to be prepared to be worthless till Im completely finished.

Loved It!!

Personal Disclaimer: Make sure that everyone from a spouse right down to the fuzzy little creatures are taken care of because once you start you cannot quit these books.

Hooray, hooray the gangs all here!!

Ms. Filler did not hold back and punches with The Raven Group. Luke was planning some R&R for Samaar/Luci and himself on some remote little island where they can get some R&R and some romance as well. Guess who plans got postponed! That’s right The Raven Group. They are on case to find a missing teenage girl. This will be a great case for them because it has corruption written all of over it. With Ms. Filler’s book they get better and better. This one was off the charts. I cannot wait to see what she has in store for The Raven Group next.

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.

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

This is the first book I’ve read in this series and while it is the sixth book, I was able to easily distinguish who is who based on the guide on page one and the detail given with each character’s introduction. I never had that “lost feeling” while reading SILK ROAD.

Even though this is fiction, it makes me sad that all of the elements of the story are, in fact, true and “we” have just turned a blind eye to it because “it’s not my family”.

The story held my attention from the very first word to the very last. It has intrique and suspense. It’s well written and flows quickly from beginning to end .

At times, this story reads like a travel journal taking us to beautiful and dangerous countries. There are so many locations this book takes place and the author does an amazing job introducing each locale.

I recommend this book and will be checking out the others in the series.

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!

Silk Road: Code Raven 6
By: Lynda Filler
5 out of 5 stars

The story Silk Road: Code Raven 6 by Lynda Filler is an amazing book that I loved reading. It has action/adventure and a cast of characters that is I enjoyed reading about. It also has mystery and suspense that had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. It is a page-turner. I have read several books in this series and they never disappoint. This story has a theme about wrongs that are endured by the innocent. There are those being reported as missing and in some places, the officials that should be out in the front lines trying to get them back are ignoring the pleas of their parents. The story made me angry with how there are those who inflict terror and inhumane treatment on the innocent. The book has Luci, Luke, and others in the Raven group up against those who have no regard for the lives of others. There are also those who ally themselves with the Raven group. There are two young children taken and one female teenager that is missing. Will they be found and rescued? Read this book to find out. This story also has a bit of romance that is going on between Luke and Luci. Luke is finding himself opening up his heart to Luci. There are moments in this story that will warm your heart. Don’t miss out on this thrilling book in the Raven series. It is wonderfully written and a story I would highly recommend reading.

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: 5 of 5 stars

Silk Road by Lynda Filler is the sixth book in her Code Raven series. This is a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat and reading right to the end.
This book has a complex and intriguing story line. There are many different things going on. Things that at first might not seem linked. But not everything is quite that clear cut.
The author takes you on a journey full of twists and turns. The writing draws you in from the start and makes sure not to let you go at all. I found that I had to read this book in one sitting because I wanted to know what was going on. And to read about all the “old gang” again was great. It is always nice to step back into such interesting and well established characters. This was another great addition to the series.
