    1. Exceptional!!!!! Exceptional!!!!! Exceptional!!!!The opening scene in this novel is impossible to pull away from. When it completed itself -I wanted to stand up and cheer!!! It took less than 5 minutes for Barry Eisler's leading female character, Livia Lone, ( aka Labee), to show her colors.her powerher sheer force of purpose! Immediately, I couldn't help but compare Livia to Lisbeth Salander, from Steig Larsson's Millennium series.y because I recognized another memorable 'kick-ass' relentless-f [...]


    2. Whoa!  First off, I have never before read anything by Barry Eisler, so I was not predisposed to either like this or not.  I mention this because it sure did not take me long to realize that I was holding a book in my hands that I would consume in big gulps.  The opening chapter grabs you by the jugular and does not let go.  But slow down, I am getting ahead of myself here.ThenLabee grew up in the rural mountainous forests of Thailand along with her sister Nisan.  One day  her sister and h [...]


    3. Barry Eisler has done it again. The author of the fantastic series of thrillers featuring John Rain has created another memorable, kick-ass character.Growing up in Thailand, Labee protected her younger sister, Nason. Labee was brave, feisty, independent, good with tools and with weapons needed to hunt food. One day she and Nason are abducted by a group of traffickers to whom her parents sold them. Labee doesn't understand why they were sold, or what is going to happen to them, but she knows abov [...]


    4. 4+ stars. I'm not quite sure what genre Livia Lone falls into, but I know that it really rocked my boat. It's somewhat of a thriller, but really it's about Livia Lone -- a strong, fearless, disturbed and disturbing character. The story is told in two alternating timelines. The book starts in Thailand where Livia and her sister are sold into slavery by their parents. They are taken to North America. Not surprisingly, terrible things happen along the way and in their early life. In her 30s, Livia [...]


    5. I'm a big fan of Eisler’s long running series featuring assassin John Rain. The books are a brilliant mix of strategy and action whilst also taking time to explore the inner workings of this complex man. So, when the opportunity arose to grab a copy of a new work from this author, featuring a new character, it took me a nanosecond to make up my mind: yes please! Labee (she later changes her name to Livia) grew up in a small village in Thailand. Her parents were poor, so poor in fact that they [...]


    6. Livia Lone is a fast-paced, action packed thriller that highlights the horrors of human trafficking. At times, I found it hard to read because of the graphic descriptions of sexual assault and violence, but its easier to read when you know that these images are included to give the reader a realistic glimpse into the world of trafficking. The novel switches back and forth in chapters titled “Now” and “Then.” "Then" opens with 13-year-old Livia (then known as Labee) and her sister, Nason, [...]


    7. This is an excellent book, one which takes you in and keeps you rivited until the end. It is also a story that will pull at your heart strings due to the subject matter. Thirteen year old Labee was born in Lahu and has an eleven year old sister Nason, both girls born to parents who are incredibly poor and life is a daily struggle to survive. Labee's parents make the decision to sell their daughters, who unfortunately now fall into the hands of human trafficers. Labee does everything she can to p [...]


    8. It’s clear early on Livia Lone is not a woman you want to cross. She’s a Seattle PD detective, jiu jitsu master & motorcycle mechanic. She’s also a killer.But if you’re not a rapist or human trafficker, no worries. Chances are she’ll leave you alone. Livia was once known as Labee & in flashbacks we learn how she & her sister were snatched from their tribe in rural Thailand & sold to human traffickers. What they endure is horrific but for Labee, the worst is yet to come. [...]


    9. Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Barry Eisler is an Author who does not disappoint. I have been a fan since I read his first book about John Rain. When reading an Eisler book, one can always count on a few things: complex interesting characters, in depth fight scenes, some violence and my favorite: strong female characters. Labee (Livia) and her younger sister, Nason, grew up in the hills of Thailand. They came from a poor family and Labee was always on the lookout for th [...]


    10. Thank you to Netgalley and Thomas & Mercer for providing an uncorrected digital proof of this book for review purposes. First off, it must be said that Livia Lone is the polar opposite of an easy read. This is dark, grim, unpleasant stuff that nightmares are made of. I was initially turned off by the somewhat ridiculous title - the alliterative "lone wolf" reference, I thought, seemed somewhat contrived. As a reader, I like to be shown that a badass female protagonist is a badass female prot [...]


    11. 4 StarsLivia and her sister are both sold by their parents and trafficked from Thailand to the USA. Their ordeal is terrifying and disturbing.Once Livia is rescued she realises that her sister has been separated along the way.Taken in and given a home by Mr and Mrs Lone, finding her sister is all she cares about.She will never give up but as the years pass she knows that the only one she can rely on is herself and decides to take matters into her own hands.My thoughtsWell that was a surprise!! O [...]


    12. Your reaction to Livia Lone is likely to depend on your capacity for reading long passages describing the horrors of people trafficking and/or the ongoing sexual abuse of a young woman, both of which form significant parts of this latest novel by Barry Eisler. Personally, whilst not squeamish, and although Eisler studiously avoids sensationalism or crass gratuity in his treatment of either topic, I can't say that I found the subject matter particularly entertaining. I finished Livia Lone because [...]


    13. Livia Lone may be the darkest, and most accomplished, book from Barry Eisler yet. I’ve been a long-time reader of Eisler’s work, and a big fan of his series character, John Rain, but early on into his latest I found myself already needing more Livia Lone books. It may be heretical, but as much as I love Eisler’s mournful assassin, if, for whatever reason, we never hear from John Rain again, I’ll be OK as long as there’s plenty more of Livia Lone to fill the gap.Livia is a tragic, tortu [...]


    14. I liked this better than Eisler's last novel, God's Eye View. However, the graphic nature of the novel and the subject of human trafficking is gut wrenching. Two young sisters from the hills of Thailand (13 year-old Labee and 11 year-old Nason) are sold by their parents to traffickers. They are shipped overseas with others, bearing indignities and much worse, and are eventually separated. Rescued by the police, Labee is adopted by a wealthy local businessman, becoming Livia Lone. The book moves [...]


    15. 4-5 Livia is a female super-duper hero-she is intense and delighted to give villains what they deserve with no remorse. "She has heart, is brave, tough mentally and physically, passionate"(adjectives lifted directly from Larry Hoffer's excellent review). Read Elyse's and Larry's wonderful reviewsPS Think I added 1/2-1* because I so loved her "kick-assedness" and she made made me think of Lisbeth Salander.


    16. 3.5 stars, rounded upThis is not really my preferred genre, although, occasionally, I indulge. I don't think I enjoyed this as much as my other two GR friends, who'd read it before me.The blurb says a lot about what this novel is about. It's basically Livia's Lone quest to find her little sister.She's also seeking revenge for all her suffering.I feel like I should have liked this much more than I did, especially given that the main character is a strong, take-no-prisoners young woman. I would li [...]


    17. This book shows the development of a young 13 year old girl who goes from being a victim of human trafficking to being an adult who as cop fights for justice for victims.The book does jump from Livia's past showing what she endured as a child to her present in which she is searching for her sister who was separated from her when they were being transported for "sell". Due to the subject matter, this book has various emotional triggers which could be difficult for some readers.Livia is sold to hu [...]


    18. Wow. I'm not entirely sure how to review this book. Let me just start by saying that the journey was intense. I immediately felt an affinity for Livia (Labee) and her strength of will and determination. The ability to find a place inside herself to keep to herself amidst such horrifying experiences. As an older sister with a younger sister I have always tried to protect, I could definitely identify with the emotions of protection, justice and never being able to give up, no matter how bleak the [...]


    19. Wow… first I have to say thank you to Elyse for the review you had on this novel!!! I was definitely not disappointed in this novel!! I would give this book a 10 if it was available!!!This book was fan----tastic!!!!! What I really liked about this book was Livia Lone's character. Holy crap is she a spit fire strong woman! Damn… Livia I appreciate your character so much! The determination and power that she had to find her sister Nason and to go through hell and back to get revenge for the th [...]


    20. Great Read! I did not know what to expect from this. I had only read a short story by Barry Eisler prior to this book. Livia is a character you are constantly cheering for. She and her sister are sold to be trafficked when they are 10 and 13 by their parents. The story goes back and forth between "then" and "now". I hated reading what all happened to her while growing up. As the plot continued, I was mortified to learn why it happened. She is a strong character and a fighter. While there is a lo [...]


    21. This is my second Eisler book in a short period of time and I am becoming a fan. Definitely will read more of his books.Livia Lone was an excellent book that kept engaged from beginning to end.


    22. Warning: Children kidnapped and raped in chapters marked "Then". I recommend skipping them through chapter 14 or so. They exist in lurid detail only as justification for the later chapters of "Now - justice". You already know what's in the "Then" chapters. These contain very unpleasant child abuse and peril to start, but become more developmental from chapter 16 onTo Mr Eisler:Livia Lone #1Mr Lone and Livia sex scenesMore child abuse! Why do writers feel the disgusting need to make this so graph [...]


    23. Disgusted, repulsed, sickened, nauseated. These are just some of the emotions that I went through while reading this ARC that I received via netgalley. This was a book which made me feel all this and more while still keeping me hooked enough that I read it in a single sitting (appx 5 hours)Starting with the gorgeous cover and a very interesting blurb, I was hooked onto this story. Unlike other books where I give a 5* rating only if I am ever interested in reading it again, I am probably never go [...]


    24. I was so psyched to get this 'wish' from Netgalley. I've read all of Eisler's books. All. of. them. Even the short stories which were okay. even that Democracy thing which opened my eyes about the power of language, even that Be the Monkey (do not YouTube that!). I loved the Rain's series and even the other two shorter series that branched off of it. But Rain's is getting to be middle aged like a lot of usLivia Lone includes lots of sensitive topics, especially for women: rape, incest, abuse, hu [...]


    25. A special thank you to Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Excellent cover! Barry Eisler returns following (2016)God’s Eye Viewwith non-action thrills to the first in his new explosive series, LIVIA LONE(#1) assured to be one of the "darkest" thrillers, like no other; starring a female sex-crimes' cop, who hunts monsters and makes them pay. Have also pre-ordered the audio narrated by the author (always a treat!)A kick-ass heroine.A female vigilante. S [...]


    26. Why? Why I am a reading a story about child trafficking, abuse, murder and mystery?Why? Why can I not put a book down that is making me feel so uncomfortable to read?Why? Why am I ok with the ‘bad people’ being murdered?Why? Why did I finish this book wanting to know more?Why? Simple; Barry Eisler has written a story that grabs you from the first page. His matter of fact, in your face and descriptive style leaves the reader no place to go other than to focus on what is happening to the main [...]


    27. Livia Lone is a dark adventure thriller featuring a vigilante cop who dispenses justice one pervert at a time. There is plenty of action to satisfy the adrenaline junkie and a back story to explain the reasons behind the extreme measures taken by the main character. We first meet Livia when she is a 13 year-old living in Thailand. Her Thai name is Labee and her biggest love is her 11 year-old sister Nason. They were Lahu, one of the hill tribes living in Thailands mountainous regions near the B [...]


    28. This is not a light or easy read, but it's fantastic. I couldn't put it down. Even made me teary a few times, it's really powerful and emotional. This story takes place in two periods of time, easily differentiated by then and now chapters. It never becomes confusing. "Then" starts with Labee and her little sister Nason. With their family struggling, Labee always makes sure Nason eats before she does. She's her protector her big sister. But she can't protect her from what's coming. Their family [...]


    29. “Liva Lone” is an emotional story of human trafficking. Author Barry Eisler tells his story through the eyes of Livia whom her parents, along with her younger sister to traffickers, sold. I found this story to be impactful in that it makes the reader FEEL what it’s like to be victimized. Livia is trafficked to the United States with no English language skills. She’s thirteen years old, in a foreign country that she has no understanding of what her situation is. Her life is out of her con [...]


    30. I have enjoyed Barry Eisler's John Rain espionage novels. Livia Lone is a bit of a departure from the Rain series and not for the squeamish. But it is beautifully written. Character and plot development are excellent.The novel deals with child trafficking, sexual entrapment and murder. Livia Lone (Labee) and her sister Nason are sold to child traffickers at a very young age by their parents in Thailand who are living hand to mouth. In transit on a container ship with other captors they are both [...]
