Harem Slave is not your predictable formulaic sex-slave novel; it is above all, a gripping and often suspense-filled documentary of the harrowing life of a victim of human trafficking. It is, in many respects, a survival guide for girls who find themselves in such unthinkable circumstances. Intended for mature readers, Harem Slave is not gratuitously pornographic, but due Harem Slave is not your predictable formulaic sex-slave novel; it is above all, a gripping and often suspense-filled documentary of the harrowing life of a victim of human trafficking. It is, in many respects, a survival guide for girls who find themselves in such unthinkable circumstances. Intended for mature readers, Harem Slave is not gratuitously pornographic, but due to the subject matter, does contain considerable erotic material. Tammy Simmons is every parent’s dream daughter: 18, blonde, a majorette, and unimpressed with how beautiful she is. An honor roll student preparing to enter Georgetown University, she seems destined to take her comfortable place in upper-middle-class America. She has taken to heart the high moral principles instilled in her by her tight-knit family, and dreams of being a diplomat. While visiting friends in Europe, however, she is abducted, and to her stunned disbelief, shipped to the Middle East and sold as a harem slave to an 81-year-old sheikh. He is scandalized when he discovers she’s not the buxom Swede he ordered, and sells her to the brooding and cantankerous Sheikh Saud. A year later, she becomes the property of Sheikh Fahd, who dyes the girls in his Rainbow Harem different colors; she is Miss Green. When Miss Purple furtively poisons him, she is bought by the handsome but mentally imbalanced Prince Ibrahim, who has been known to put slaves to death so he and his guests can enjoy their fresh corpses at his lavish parties. Fortunately or unfortunately, instead of taking her into his own harem, he leases her to an elite gentlemen’s club, part of a dark underworld on the Persian Gulf where brothels cater to every taste, every perversion, every excess. She quickly learns that brutality, even in the “nice” clubs, is the norm: in the worst, life expectancy is calculated in weeks. Disciplinary problems are threatened with being sent to a “snuff club,” where they are tortured to death as entertainment. To this point, Tammy has managed to adjust to slavery without completely negating her persona, but now, she almost comes unglued. She has no other choice, if she wants to survive, but to swallow her self-respect and obey orders. It’s a constant struggle. She is proud of herself for not falling apart during one particularly horrible assignment – and then is immediately trundled off to another that’s even worse. How Tammy remains sane in this horrific environment is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit, to the power of love toward those who deserve it the least, and to the defiant determination to find glimmers of joy – even lasting love – in a life awash with daily humiliation and degradation. Her caring heart, courage, and ability to understand her masters as fallible humans grappling with their own sets of demons are ultimately the keys to her salvation.

In this novel, the Author touches upon an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ topic – human trafficking and, given the topic I was expecting a little more than the book actually delivered for me. The main lead character is female and unfortunately, at no point in my reading this book did I actually find myself caring about her. She possessed all the traits of the over privileged and wealthy teenager, who always knows better than those around her, and disregards all advice given to her. Because of this, and as harsh as it seems, I was really made to feel as if she got what was coming to her. The book itself is intended to be a compilation of actual events that happened to women caught in the world of human trafficking, but it really stretched believe at some points with the women’s reactions to their ‘owners’. I understand all about Stockholm Syndrome, but none of the behaviour exhibited by the characters evenly remotely put them in this category. This does not mean that the book is not well researched, it is actually very well researched and written, but despite this it still sat firmly in the women’s soft porn genre, rather than giving me an insight into a criminal world that needs exposing. I felt that so much more could have been done with this topic to make it a voice for those who are either still in ‘captivity’ or have recently been rescued. Another downside for me, in the Kindle edition, was the erratic and choppy formatting. I really don’t need a page full of half sentence paragraphs that I have to try to make sense of, on top of everything else that is happening. A little more time with proofreading and editing would also have helped in taking care of some other errors that appeared throughout the book. Usually I can work with these, and they don’t detract from what I am reading, but in this case, it just made my experience a little harder to swallow. I am not a prude, and like erotica, but I like it when it is open and declares itself as such, not comes in the disguise of something else. If you are a reader that enjoys bondage and cruelty, then this would be for you. If, however, you are looking for an informative read on human trafficking that could be used as a rally cry to help end this activity, I feel you may be sorely disappointed.

    This book is one of the very few that have really affected me; I have read many erotic harem stories but not one that delved the depths of depravity quite as this one. I’ll admit to have been titillated by some of those stories imagining achingly beautiful women luxuriating in opulent splendour whilst dreaming of their beloved master. This is not the usual sex slave in a harem novel, although given that the subject matter is slaves, harems and therefore sex it can at times be quite erotic. It is This book is one of the very few that have really affected me; I have read many erotic harem stories but not one that delved the depths of depravity quite as this one. I’ll admit to have been titillated by some of those stories imagining achingly beautiful women luxuriating in opulent splendour whilst dreaming of their beloved master. This is not the usual sex slave in a harem novel, although given that the subject matter is slaves, harems and therefore sex it can at times be quite erotic. It is more of a documentary telling the story of a young girl’s experiences of slavery in the Middle East. Touching on many lives, from the downtrodden women of some countries to the utterly subjugated and terrified ones, forced like her into actual slavery. Some of the men have so much wealth they simply don’t know what to do with it and consequently suffer no restraints on their behaviour, which results in the scarcely believable terrors that the victims of human trafficking can be forced to suffer that really beggar belief. This harrowing story is the result of the author collecting stories on trafficking but even if the veracity of only some of these scenarios were proven then such suffering would cause most people to lose their sanity. Tammy is abducted and sold to a harem where she discovers the reality of being a female slave in the Middle East. The drab, dingy woman’s house where she was forced to stay, suffering from the heat, the language, the spiteful indifference of the other women whilst trying to survive on the leftovers from the men’s table, although it’s the stultifying boredom that is probably her worst problem. When her eighty one year old owner discovers that she isn’t the busty Nordic girl he ordered, he sells her and she moves through various other harems, of varying opulence before ending up being owned by a prince who leases her out to a gentleman’s club, one of many in the area that cater to all tastes of human depravity. The ultimate deterrent, held over all the club workers is being sent to a snuff club where the victims are slowly tortured to death for the pleasure of the members. Whilst in her club she is forced to endure unimaginable privations for many hours each day but still appear to be happy and enthusiastic; and at the same time retain her sanity. I really liked and thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, strangely associating with Tammy; found it very hard to put down as I kept wanting to know what happened next. I highly recommend this well researched and well written book unless you have a squeamish disposition and/or dislike sexual adult themes.

    Harem Slave ~ One Thousand Nine Hundred & Four Days of Hell on the Persian Gulf is based on true experiences of women caught in human trafficking. It is not BDSM and it is not for the week of heart, as it depicts the cruelty of slavery that still exists in our modern world. The girl taken has grown into a woman by the time her ordeal ends and yes the fictional ending is a happy one or at least one of her choice. Older teens are as a group, easy to influence and change, and the girl in the story h Harem Slave ~ One Thousand Nine Hundred & Four Days of Hell on the Persian Gulf is based on true experiences of women caught in human trafficking.

Older teens are as a group, easy to influence and change, and the girl in the story has one goal that stays in her mind and that is survival, as she is influenced and adapts to the life of a slave. She is sold several times into different situations to finally end being owned and leased to a high-class club for men, which translates into a club where men can do whatever they wish to her, absolutely barbaric behavior and humiliation. She has friends, eunuchs, other slave girls and some of the gentlemen that come to the club to give her some good moments during her captivity. Harem Slave is a story that I will not forget soon; if you want a fictional story based on reality of one of the ugliest parts of humankind ~ slavery ~ this is it.

    First off, this very-well-written, well-researched book is not focused on erotica, though it has aspects of harems, slavery, bondage, and incidentals about SM that happen to "others" in the story. This is, foremost, a story of one woman's overcoming her forced slavery - in both her mind and eventual physical escape. In that regard, it's a gripping tale of rising above the most difficult of situations, the ability of the human spirit to survive, or not, and the triumph of love in some cases.

The story has a talented touch of realism and the author draws you in and makes the tale compelling. If you want to read an erotic story for the turn-on, this tale offers something to readers who are into bondage and cruelty, but nothing directly to those who are into light/heavy body modification, fetishes (except really bizarre stuff that's kind of yucky), hair, etc. That said, this is a book worth reading for its literacy and its story quality.

    This was extremely graphic; at times, it was cringe worthy. However, this simply emphasized the author's point, which is that human trafficking exists and it is a terrible terrible crime. If you can get through the intense, sexually nauseating descriptions, this is an interesting read and quite the eye-opener to an international problem.

    What an amazing story of survival. An important story of surviving human trafficking, thriving despite many challenges, faith, and eventually freedom. It took great courage to share this story with the world.

    I will not recommend this book for anyone. You must choose to read it for yourself. I was concerned by how flippant the heroine was regarding some brutal experiences at the very beginning. That's just the thing with this book, though. As Tammy's journey through a series of harems and sex clubs continues and the reader is informed of the fate of some of her acquaintances almost as an after thought, you really start to get an uneasy feeling about Tammy's own long downward spiral.

As Tammy's journey through a series of harems and sex clubs continues and the reader is informed of the fate of some of her acquaintances almost as an after thought, you really start to get an uneasy feeling about Tammy's own long downward spiral. This brilliantly ratchets up the suspense. I was frightened to the point of queasiness to the very end. This is not an erotic tale, but rather a cruel sexual ultra suspenseful thriller. Many reviews suggest that the book is well researched. I am certain that many brutal things happen out in the world, but I wonder if this book presents the sex industry for the ultra-rich in the Middle East as something that is almost condoned or normalized. This novel certainly makes one wonder. Regardless, we, as compassionate humans must do all we can to fight human trafficking at all costs. If the rich and powerful who lead us know of this but do nothing about it or sweep it under the carpet., they should be replaced. That said, if you read this novel, you may find a need to research human trafficking and the fight against it. In some instances I did not find the actions of some of the characters to be believable. Hmm... maybe there was something of a "Mary Sue"-ness about the main character (i.e. the "Mary Sue" TV trope). But that is a really disturbing thought... So, don't quote me on it...

    Sickening but amazing I just can't get over it, from beginning to end! when I was reading, I would tense up about what was happening and get knots in my stomach. never has a book affected me physically like that or with this much emotion! I just shake my head and want to cry forever for these women, sickening what they endure! if anything, it will make a person, especially a woman, a mother, be aware of everything around her.

    Heartbreaking this true story is heartbreaking especially when you know how often this happens all around the world. I gave it 3 out of 5.stars just because it is quite graphic and may not be a book for everyone. I can only imagine her agony and what she goes through to tell people about her experience as a slave

    Porno!!!! After the first ten pages, I realized this was a badly written pornography book, I immediately scrolled to the ending to see 'what happened' ... and was not amazed to find a badly written conclusion.
