Love, God & Tattoos Bundle Review



From the Book
ALCATRAZ THE LOST PEARL Fifteen year old Alcatraz is being chased. Born and raised in a loving family, she suddenly finds herself fending for her life on the streets of Los Angeles. Consumed with anger, hurt and confusion, Alcatraz turns to the spiritual realm to find life’s answers. While experimenting with pagan spells, Buddhist chants, and yoga sutras, she continually encounters a spirit who claims He is God. The Truth she learns from this spiritual quest introduces her to the unexpected world of divine healing, acceptance and unconditional love.

ALCATRAZ THE RIGHTEOUS PEARL After two years of spiritual searching, Alcatraz has finally decided who the One true God is for her life. But trouble soon follows. Being rejected by her new found religious organization because of her appearance and discharged from the tattoo shop for her beliefs, Alcatraz is forced to enter the Hollywood adult entertainment life with her best friend Kuriko. The nightmares she experiences living on the dubious streets of Los Angeles causes her to struggle to keep her faith.

KURIKO THE DAMAGED PEARL Alcatraz has desperately wanted to learn more about the mysterious past of her street-smart Japanese best friend, Kuriko. Now her wish has come true, but not in the way she expected. Kuriko handed Alcatraz a black bamboo box before the tragic accident. Inside, Alcatraz finds the diary of a nineteen-year-old girl's struggle with sex trafficking, powerful men, abuse, betrayal, and surprisingly, a burning desire to know God. After two years of living with the secretive, over-protective high-dollar prostitute, Alcatraz learns the dark truth of Kuriko's inhumane journey. Now she wishes the past could have been buried with her best friend.


Love, God & Tattoos is a series of young adult novels written by American author Aleshia Robinson. The story chronicles the spiritual journey of 21 year old Alcatraz, a troubled tattoo artist, and her struggle to have a positive relationship with God and herself.


My Impressions: 

 This was a brilliantly wrote series that I could not put down once I started.This was one of those rare series that you pick up that have it all. The series is also very religious and it takes a hard look at the different types of religions out there and how each has different, but profound effects on one’s life, all the while pointing back to Jesus. 

The first book opens up with Katherine (aka Alcatraz) that has gone from having a loving family and a comfortable home life to a sudden and traumatic tragedy that strikes leaving her alone and struggling for answers. She soon embarks on her own personal faith journey to try and discover who she really is and what she really believes. By the time you get the end of the third book you have ventured down this wonderful path through all these different religions with some intense dialogue to wind up at the feet of Jesus. 

I think this whole series was a remarkable undertaking that everyone can relate to at some point and time in life. Our parent’s faith cannot remain ours forever.  We have to decide to create our own faith and that starts with asking tough questions and seeking the answers for ourselves. Alcatraz’s journey was real, exciting to watch and beautiful with how it unfolded in the end.

What does Jesus offer that other religions don't? I recommend you pick up this series and see for yourself what Katherine discovered.
