Publisher's Summary

After graduating from the Secret Seminary, Hannah and Simon are ready to return to their homeland. Their training has equipped them to carry the gospel to a country ravaged by darkness and despair. If necessary, they're even prepared to face the North Korean labor camps, but the hardest part of their mission isn't the hunger, cold, and incessant danger. The hardest part is cutting off contact with one another. In this world of spies, secret police, and informants, Hannah and Simon learn that staying together won't just compromise their ministry. It could cost them both their lives.
Two undercover missionaries delivering a single message of hope. Two Christians willing to die for the sake of the Good News. One love - more powerful than terror, more beautiful than life, and more dangerous than either of them could possibly imagine.
A love so strong, nothing but the grave could overcome it.

Torn Asunder

Would you listen to Torn Asunder again? Why?

I would listen to Torn Asunder again because of the story. The suspense, romance, deep questions, and faith touched me and kept me listening even though the characters experienced many harsh circumstances.

What did you like best about this story?

Torn Asunder reminded me of the realities of the persecution happening to Christians worldwide. I remember the verse in Hebrews that tells Christians to remember those who are persecuted for their faith as though we were experiencing those things with them. Therefore, I am challenged to pray for those who are persecuted.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was the execution scene at the end. I cannot tell what happens for fear of revealing the end, but it was fantastic. It brought the right amount of stress and fear for the characters while reminding me of the joy that is to come.

Who was the most memorable character of Torn Asunder and why?

The most memorable character was Moses. He was quite possibly the hardest character to understand and I did not care about him like I did the other characters. However, his circumstances challenged me to consider what it would really be like to be in a position of having to persecute someone else of the same faith. It made me question the goodness of his character. Yet, he still accomplished many good things for other Christians. I would never want to be in his situation, however.

Any additional comments?

I liked this book. it was as good as an audiobook as it was as an ebook.

I received a free audiobook copy of Torn Asunder from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Powerful Suspense

Would you consider the audio edition of Torn Asunder to be better than the print version?

They are equally fantastic

What did you like best about this story?

Torn Asunder by Alana Terry is an extraordinary addition to her awesome series of books which include The Beloved Daughter and Slave Again. Ms. Terry is an incredibly gifted storyteller and all of the books are intense and thought provoking while providing a suspenseful tale of mystery, devotion and perseverance. Although there is connective tissue between the stories, they can be read as stand alones.

Torn Asunder takes us back to the Secret Seminary with Hannah and Simon, two newly trained missionaries who are eager to begin their work in the underground church. Hannah is a courageous and strong believer whose greatest gifts are masked behind the delicate frame of a young woman. Because of her looks, she is continuously underestimated. Through her torture and imprisonment while performing her missionary duties, Hannah finds that love is stronger than death.

Simon is ready to take on the National Security Administration in order to serve the Lord in the underground church, but when Hannah is threatened he realizes his devotion is also tied to his love for her. All of his training in the Secret Seminary has not prepared him for the lengths he will go to in order to protect the one he loves.

Moses is the legendary man who eludes the authorities with his ability to provide bibles and protect missionaries. Some say he is a myth but there have been a few who have actually met him. His identity must remain a secret for the greater good but the NSA is getting way too close to finding him.

Torn Asunder is very well written and although the material is tough to read, it is done with discretion and class. Ms. Terry has a great way of presenting the story without unnecessary detail that will do nothing more than hinder the reader. Rather, she delivers a story of strength and courage in the face of horrific trials.

It is easy for me to write this review as Ms. Terry has undoubtedly become one of my very favorite authors. Her stories are powerful and ones that the world is blessed to read. Not only does she provide great entertainment through her books, but she also awakens readers to the reality of those who are still suffering and martyred for the sake of the Gospel.

The narration in the audiobook is well done. It was so good that I went back and forth between listening to the book and reading it just to keep the story going. I received this book from Ms. Terry in exchange for my honest and unbiased review which I’ve provided here.

Which character – as performed by Pamela Lorence – was your favorite?

Hannah because she demonstrates love in action.

Who was the most memorable character of Torn Asunder and why?

Moses because he is not who I expected him to be. It was a great AHA moment.

Any additional comments?

This is a fantastic book! Easily one I would listen to again.
