 Red Days by M.L. Sparrow 

Red DaysNot only has author M.L. Sparrow written a great fictional tale, she has based it on facts. Acts that are brutal, raw and should scrape on the conscience of every human on Earth. Feel the passion of this author come to life, the passion of her characters and the atmosphere that will incite readers to want to learn more.

Imagine being given an assignment that affects you so deeply you become an activist, a crusader for a cause and will risk your very life to protect the innocent. Keiko has lived her life, never really thinking about the environment or the devastation being wreaked on other creatures, but that all changes when she witnesses the annual Taiji Dolphin Slaughter. Yes, a slaughter of brutal proportions held as a proud tradition.

Keiko lives a more than comfortable life in London, but that all changed when their sense of humanity becomes a raging inferno. It started with a DVD and a man well-acquainted with dolphins, their intelligence and the horrors they have faced. What person could stomach herding anything or anyone into a cove only to slaughter them?

Feel the passion, bear witness to the cruelty M.L. Sparrow was moved enough to write about to remind us of our responsibilities as beings who only share this earth with other beings. I was in turn, impressed with the raw facts, horrified that I have been so clueless as to the actual slaughters and ashamed to be part of a race who finds this heinous act worthy of being a tradition.
Read it. Ms. Sparrow does a remarkable job of telling a heart-breaking story and bringing it to life.

I received an ARC edition from M.L. Sparrow in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
