THE NEXT TARGET by Nikki Arana

Austia Donatelli, never dreamt the paths her life would take the day she watched her husband, David, board the airplane on his way to minister to the Muslims.

Now, with the passing of David's death, Ausita, has felt the Lord leading her to continue his ministry.  Working at the Career Center, she is helping the Muslim women learn the English language. When women begin to come to her, to learn about Jesus, she knows that she is not only putting their lives in danger, but her own.

When one of her students, Sabirah, a Muslim, is found shot, Austia, knows that her family were responsible. Had she been careless in her ministry?

Zaki, a Muslim man, comes in shortly after and applies for a job to be an interpreter for the Muslim men that come to the Center.  Has he been sent to find out if Austia is the one, responsible for Sabirah becoming a Christian?  Could he be the one that not only ends her ministry, but her life?

I first become acquainted with the author, Nikki Arana, when I reviewed her first book, "The Winds of  Sonoma".  This was the first in the series, "Regalo Grande".  I fell in love with this author.  When she asked if I would be interested in reviewing her new book, I absolutely jumped at the chance.

"The Next Target" is completely different that the first three, and I was taken in by the first page.  I started reading it at night and found that it was 4am, when I finished.  This is a book that I will share, but I definitely want back on my shelf.  

In this book, I was given a glimpse of what Muslim women have to go through.  Freedom, that I take for granted.  I highly recommend this book.  Nikki Arana, has written a book that will take the reader on a journey, that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat.  Just remember to breathe.

I give this book a 5 star rating and I am looking forward to more books from this talented author.

  1. Thanks so much for your review. I wrote the book to invite discussion about a question Austia had to answer . . . Would you share your faith if it would cost you your life?

    I would love to hear to hear the thoughts of any of your blog followers!

    Also, any of you on Facebook that have an interest in persecuted Christians (Muslims who convert to Christianity) you can join me on my journey by "liking" the page A Voice for the Persecuted on Facebook.
