Call from Home by Joni Parker

Book Description:
If home is where the heart is, the warrior Lady Alexin is very far from home, indeed. Banished from her home in the Elven realm of Eledon to the mortal world of near future London, and robbed of her magic, she has no choice but to try and find a place in a world where she doesn't fit in. Yet for all their peculiarities, the mortals have not been unkind; she has a new career as a high fashion runway model, her very own flat in a posh section of town and a host of opportunities to socialize with a variety of admirers, including a handsome Detective Inspector from Scotland Yard.
Yet nothing but her former training as a tracker and assassin could have prepared her for the discovery that beautiful young Elven women are being kidnapped and trafficked as slaves into the mortal world by the notorious Rock Elves, working with the white supremacist 23rd Infantry--an unholy alliance led by Alex's old nemesis, Sawgrass. As the truth unravels her mission is clear--a call from home she cannot allow to go unanswered, even if it means her life.

My Thoughts:
I've been waiting on this book and was so excited to get it.  Alex is still an awesome character and I have loved watching her grow and change through these stories.  I thought I was ready for the book to touch on human trafficking but it is still terrifying to read about/think about.
I truly enjoyed how the story unfolded and didn't want to put it down.  There is a wonderful plot and I was rooting for Alex.  I like how the Elven trafficking can bring light to current events without being preachy or over the top.  It was done really well.  I really enjoyed this series!
It was a 4/5 for me.
