Well this was better than the last two, thank goodness!!!! Still, I was not pleased with how rushed the ending was, but I think that's just the authors style.... I guess. I will continue on to the next book eventually!

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

I'm confused about the timeline in some of these books. For example, in the first book, Myra turned 60 years old at the beginning of the story. By the beginning of the sixth book, she was only 63. That was weird because I know that at least a year (possibly two, I can't remember for sure) passed before the girls all met up to do the very first mission. And then a lot of time passed between each mission. It had to be more than three years between the six books.
And now...Yoko's father is 50 years

The last of the Sisterhood got their revenge with their mission. Prior to working her mission, Yoko traveled to China to locate her grandparents. With that complete, the ladies gathered up all the men involved in the sexual slavery ring, lead by Yoko's father, Academy award winning actor, Michael Lyons. Once the job was done, Jack arrested the ladies and took them back to D.C., where Lizzie Fox was their defense attorney, in Judge Easter's courtroom. With Jack, Lizzie and Judge Easter's assistan ...more

Anyone feeling the need to be apart of something special join the Sisterhood. Friendships that last a lifetime are filled with trust as that of a child to a parent.

In this book of the Sisterhood saga, Yoko sets out to get revenge on the father who deserted her mother who was left for dead, thus Yoko was whisked away and raised by her aunts . With the help of her friends a plan is set in motion. She tracks down her grandparents to find out what she can about the mystery behind the man who is her so called father. I enjoyed this book, however the ending seemed very rushed. The revenge that finally came about was actually a let down for me and almost juvenile ...more

Yoko gets her man in more ways than one; her dad and a sweetheart; and the Sisterhood gets caught but everything seems to turn out for them. I can't wait to read the next installment to find out more.

A lot of Action. This mission is going to be tougher than anyone ever imagined. And the crimes of those they were going after, were sicker than anything they have encountered before too. Even tougher than nails Charles is beyond sickened by the information that comes across his desk. And in his former profession he's seem some awful things. There are plenty of twists and turns and near misses, to keep you on the edge of your seat. And those sneaky, nosy reporters are back, they still haven't lea ...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

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

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

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

Synopsis: Florist Yoko Akia has been hungering for revenge all her life, and now, finally, it is time.

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

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

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

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.

I've really enjoyed the Sisterhood Series. Yoko, a very interesting woman of her own right, get's her justice this time. Yoko's mother was a sex slave left to die by her father, a famous actor. Not only does he dabble in sex with underage foreign girls, he also runs a profitable side business fulfilling orders from others who are so inclined. Yoko wanted to know who her father was and as she did and she found herself in the process. The revenge taken on her father was really well done and as int ...more

Apparently this book is one of a series of action/adventure books with females as the lead characters. I didn't realize this when I got the book and it does not mention that it is #7 in a series on the front cover.
I liked the fact that women were the lead characters and were involved in some exciting adventures.
However, by not reading the previous 6 books in this series, I missed something and it was
hard to piece the story line together.

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.

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.

Slick, slippery scum doesn't always dwell at the bottom of ponds, sometimes it walks among us disguised as someone good and wholesome. This is a lesson the Sisterhood will learn as they meet up to avenge the wrongs done to one of their own. Their mission takes them into a world where depravity and atrocities done to innocents are an every day occurrence. Meanwhile, those meddling reporters are continuing to cause problems at every turn which may lead the Sisters to being caught.

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.

As always this series keeps me on the edge of my seat guessing what the ladies will do next and this one was no different. I was however very underwhelmed by the end result of their plan and kind of confused as to what happened to the ladies as a result. Not sure where that came from and how it came about. Not my favorite of the series but I'm looking forward to reading the next one.
