Set Us Free by M.R. Leahy begins where book one ends. Emmy is still struggling to remember her past and trying to live in the now. Kodah has found a new family in the mc brotherhood with JB . . . however, he can’t move forward until the love of his life remembers who he is. Kept apart for years after their escape from slavery, they are both alive, but really not living.
Even though she is unable to remember, others remember Emmy, and her life is at risk from those wanting to draw her back into slavery. It will take all her saviors’ resources as well as banding together with unexpected allies to keep her safe from harm. If and when Emmy remembers and can confront her past, will she be able to have the life of love and freedom Kodah promised her?
Set Us Free is a powerful and moving conclusion to Emmy and Kodah’s story. Both have lived through things most of us cannot even imagine. Yet, Emmy somehow retains her light that draws others to her. And Kodah remains unwaveringly faithful through the years just waiting for the moment he can once again claim his place in Emmy’s life.
M.R. Leahy does an amazing job with her characters and their stories. I love that she explores difficult and taboo topics such as sexual slavery and its aftermath on the survivors and has characters that just because they did bad things, does not make them evil. This book is thought provoking, intense and emotional to read. It’s an amazing sequel to Set Me Free, and in the end, provides a bit of lightness that is Kodah and Emmy.
This book is not for everyone. If sexual assault or slavery is a trigger for you, please stay away. That being said, it is an amazing read. Kudos to M. R. Leahy for tackling these topics in an exceptional way. 5 stars.
