Read in April, 2012

Book 1 in Macias' Extreme Devotion series hooked me from the very beginning pages. The tension mounts quickly as the reader discovers that 16-year-old Chioma and her 15-year-old brother Masozi had been orphaned four years earlier when their parents were murdered for having participated in the African National Congress movement against apartheid. The two now live and work on an Afrikaner family's farm.

Tragedy is on the horizon from the early chapters, when Chioma and Andrew, the farm owner's son, find themselves attracted to each other. When Chioma escapes to join an ANC rebel band in her effort to survive and to gain revenge for her parents' deaths and for her culture, Chioma finds herself facing life-or-death situations when she must choose between violence and revenge --or forgiveness and selfless love.

The plot was a powerful reminder of the fear and hate so many live with in different parts of the world, but also the power of redemption to change lives in small and huge ways.
