#BookReview: The Ninja's Blade (Lily Wong #2) by @ToriEldridge






Synopsis: Lily Wong--a Chinese-Norwegian modern-day ninja--has more trouble than she was bargaining for when controlling grandparents arrive in Los Angeles from Hong Kong at the same time she goes undercover in the dangerous world of sex trafficking in this second book in the series. As she hunts for a missing high school girl, a kidnapped prostitute, and a sociopathic pimp, the surviving members of a murderous street gang hunt for her. Life would be easier if Lily knew who to trust. But when victims are villains, villains are victims, and even family is plotting against her, easy is not an option. All Lily can do is follow the trail wherever it leads: through a high school campus polarized by racial tension or the secret back rooms of a barber/tattoo/brothel or the soul-crushing stretch of Long Beach Boulevard known as The Blade. She relies on her ninja skills to deceive and infiltrate, rescue and kill--whatever is necessary to free the girls from their literal and figurative slavery. If only those same skills could keep Lily's conniving grandparents from hijacking her future.
This title will be released on September 1, 2020.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: Book two of this series was even better than book one.  I loved the flow of the story and how each character played their part.  This book if you haven't read book one I think you would be able to read this one without it.  Although you might miss some of the connections from book one it can still stand on its own.  If you loved fast paced stories with action etc.  Then you totally need to check this one out.
