The New Holy Warriors – Alice Sandoval

The New Holy Warriors by Alice Sandoval was recommended to me by @Booktasters and I am glad of that. It is a fascinating rescue mission by two sons and their friends of their kidnapped parents who worked for Doctors without Borders from islamic jihadists in the aftermath of 9/11 terorist attacks. Along the story also is given the history of Jihad or Holy war propagated by hardcore Islamists.
The book is an insight in to the workings of the so called Holy Warriors brainwashed by radicals alongside the rescue mission and a love story embedded in between.
Also the pictures included give out a great support to the narrative.
It is a good read for a variety of readers like adventure story or a rescue mission or someone interested in the history. The only shortcoming is the too lengthy descriptions and long dialogues but still a worthy read
