Well I think I can stop reading these books for a while, I find I am skimming more than reading for pleasure. It is almost a shame because I think the writing is getting better. I actually enjoyed the last 50 pages. I think the story idea is imaginative but the dialogue and character reaction to situations are just odd at times. Sometime when you read conversations in this series it comes off as a bad stage play. Head scratcher. I can't really give good reasons why I keep reading these books exc ...more

Sisterhood # 7: Yoko gets a long needed revenge.

Yoko has a secret that when she reviels her mission put the Sisterhood to the test. The Sisters put it all out on the line to help Yoko avenge her mother. Trust me when I say reader were not ready for this book until now. If it is something that makes Charles sick to his stomach then you know right off the bat that the mission is going to be difficult and somethings are not easy to forget and that this is one mission that takes strong wills and is

Book 7 of the Sisterhood series and the last mission of the seven main characters. Yoko Akia finally gets her chance at revenge against the man (also her father) who bought her mother at 15. Michael Lyons is a famous actor and up for another Oscar. He is also the main man in a human trafficking organization. Yoko was thrown away when born and her "aunts", other girls in the prostitution ring, took her in, kept her safe and educated her. Mick then had her mother back in the sex trade where she bl ...more

The Sisterhood is comprised of a group of women who have banded together to avenge the wrongs of those near and dear to them. In this series, I have enjoyed reading about and cheering on the women whose loyalty and smarts help them achieve their goals.

In "Free Fall: Sisterhood Series #7 (The Sisterhood)," one of their own, Yoko Akia, seeks to avenge her mother who was only fifteen when a wealthy man swept her off her feet with promises of love. Instead, he brought her a life of horror and eventu

Seventh in the Sisterhood vengeance-suspense series about a group of women seeking justice outside the courts.

The Story
It's a year later and, at last, it's Yoko's turn and, oh, boy, it is truly awful. Yoko wants vengeance against her own father. The man who has made it a twice-a-year practice to visit third world countries to buy very young virgins. Some for his personal use; the rest he sells to sick perverts just like himself. It was Yoko's mother's fate. Purchased along with her sisters, Suki

There could have been more 'meat' to this book. Not enough attention to what happened to the "bad guys". I wanted to know about every detail of them getting there just desserts after all the detail of their ugly activities. Instead we get too much about reporters and the GOOD girls getting caught, too easily in my opinion. Let's hope the author gets back to the good stuff in future books, that is the bad people getting their lives changed around forever in ways they didn't expect.

I have read Fern Michaels many times in the past but it has been awhile and I know my reading tastes have changed however, this book sort of makes me not want to read Fern Michaels ever again. A friend of mine loaned me the book and since she did, I wanted to give it a try. I figured out quickly it was part of a series and fortunately, a positive I can say about this book is that I did not feel like I missed anything from not having read the other books. I was pretty easily brought into the stor ...more

It has been ahead since the sisterhood has met. This time it is suppose to be to seek revenge on those who wrong Yoko. Charles, who has seen it all when he was in service to the Queen, is sickened by the background information he discovers for this task. Before handing the dossiers to the girls to review he warns them of his concerns. When Yoko apologies and attempts to back out they all rally around her to forge ahead.

Charles and Myra now the day will come when they have gone too far and begins

Justice is served, Sisterhood style

Everyone finally gets their justice. Yoko's case was, I don't know, just horrible. To have a father that was so perverted. It is so sad that this time of "business" exists. Slave rings, prostitution, buying and selling of women; and to think that as soon as one is brought down another takes its place. Off to find out what other great adventures the Sisterhood is involved with.
Aug 11, 2014 Rhonda rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
This is the 7th in the sisterhood series and I found it to be the weakest by far. I like the premise of the series but this one didn't hit the mark at all for me. Spent most of the book meeting the family that sold her mother into slavery and preparing for their out of country compound they'll need to hide in later. The actual revenge was very unimaginative and poorly done. I'm going to give the next one or two a try but hoping for great improvement.

Synopsis: Florist Yoko Akia has been hungering for revenge all her life, and now, finally, it is time. Yoko's mother was just fifteen when a rich American deceived her into a life of degradation in a twisted prostitution ring. She died aged seventeen after bearing her baby girl. The ladies are shocked to discover Yoko's dad is none other than Michael Lyons, an award-winning film star with another nasty secret: he's been buying and selling Asian women as sex slaves to prominent businessmen.

I read the second in the series of The Sisterhood first and thought it was a great premise for a series of women getting justice for themselves. Unfortunately after that first moderately good read, the next two i tried to read were terrible. There are too many characters that if you haven't read the series in order, the reader sometimes has no idea who they are. In both of the next two books i read, including Free Fall, it took much too long to get into the mystery and the revenge story, especia ...more

When the book first opened up talking about Yoko & her revenge & her Japanese routines, I kinda thought I was in for some kind of ninja scenario where she was going to go on a killing spree....but it shaped up a bit differently. Much more creative, and less bloody.

I wasn't aware when I was given the book, that it was #7 in a series though. I'm thinking books/audiobooks need to have a very big number on them announcing what number in a series it is because I really don't have the time to

Seventh in the Sisterhood series, this one avenges Yoko. Her biological father bought her mother as a 15yr old girl in Japan and then had her work in his sex club. This is a quick revenge. Seemed the focus of the book was more on moving the team to their new headquarters in Spain.

I always like books by Fern Michaels. Lots of imagination! This one involves a group of ladies and one man who scheme to right some wrongs. For each of the "sisters", somebody treated her badly and needs to be put in his place. The Sisterhood devises a way to get their revenge, and get away with it. They've done it before, and quite successfully. But this time, something goes wrong.....

This is book #7 in a series called,"Revenge of the Sisterhood". My book club wanted to read it, and many of the

Yoko's turn....needless to say, this one was a page turner. The last of the revenge..each girl had their revenge, poor Julia. I am anxious to see what another book will be like without them.

Free Fall

Each book keeps getting better and better. The reporters just won't give up trying to catch the vigilantes wanting to get a Pulitzer.

This was my favorite of the Sisterhood books so far. Yoko's revenge was clever and delicious. I loved it. I also thought that Michaels did a good job of developing additional characters that are sure to figure prominently into future plot lines. Bravo.

I am really enjoying this series of books. They are easy reads, but the author holds my attention enough for me to stay up late into the night to finish her book.

This is the first one in the series that I read. Perhaps if I had read others I may have rated it higher. I skimmed most of it.

Loved this series, realy get to love the characters, and wonder how the sisterhood will evolve once Yoko's gets her revenge.
Another exciting adventure of the Sisterhood. This one has an enexpected twist I didn't see coming.
