Tess – Valkyries United: The Abomination of Human Trafficking – Spotlight and Review


After rescuing a child prostitute in Cambodia, Tess persuades Jake, Carmen, Nicola and the Team to tackle human trafficking worldwide. Sponsored by the United Nations, she creates a team of Valkyries, six remarkable women that alongside the men of the Team embark on a Herculean effort to rescue victims and pursue traffickers, starting with a degenerate financier that controls a multinational sex enterprise. The team then takes direct action by unleashing their military skills in battles against powerful slavers, Boko Haram in Nigeria and the Mexican cartels. The action turns to combating child trafficking, rescuing captured women abused by the terrorist group ISIS, probing Nigerian prostitution in Europe and Russia, and confronting the appalling sex trade in Mexico, Afghanistan and in the U.S. In a whirlwind series of actions, the story transitions from Phnom Penh to New York, Houston, Miami, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Buenos Aires, and Las Vegas. The deeper the Team gets involved, the more challenging their task becomes. With all cards stacked against them, Tess and Jake must find a way to address the fundamental causes of human trafficking and attempt to formulate a solution to intractable problems.

VANESSA KINGS'We are lately witnessing some of the most brutal and heart-less acts in the world, from massive assaults, shootings, terrorism, human trafficking and murder. I have never read a fiction book about one of those topics until now, and the way in which “Tess – Valkyries United: The Abomination of Human Trafficking” addresses them is very touching.

While the Valkyries and the Team are traveling across the world in an attempt to eradicate human trafficking, we get to know the real aspects of the horrible situations that many women have to live every day, not only in the Middle East but everywhere. People walk around unaware of this and this book, besides being a fictional story is very though-provoking about this matter.

The author managed to include a romance story in-between the pages, which adds so much value to the plot, making it unique and even more real.

This isn’t the kind of book that I would normally pick to read, bit I’m very glad I did, and if it’s not your favorite genre either, I invite you to give it a try, it won’t disappoint you and it will change the way you think about many things.




Before I started writing fiction, I was an Army Officer and a business executive. My education includes degrees in Political Science and International Relations. I am a published author of three management books and various business articles.

Currently, I am following my passion by writing the Tess series of adventure novels. The first two were Tess Awakening and its sequel Tess Valkyrie. Both books are also available in a combined version, Tess – Valkyrie Awakening. The latest is Tess – Valkyries United.

My books are also available in print at most online retailers.

Based on real contemporary events, the stories explore the challenges posed by international political developments and the issues that professional women face in today’s world. The setting of the stories starts with the second Gulf War in Iraq and continues up to the current era.

Action, intrigue, deceit, obsession, sensuality, the use of wealth to achieve one’s goals, the struggle between good and evil are a constant theme.
