My Thoughts

FALCON could very well be a story ripped from today’s headlines. Set in modern day Afghanistan the story details one elite military units fight to maintain cyber security as well as the safety and anonymity of valuable military assets. The identity of the person or group perpetrating the attacks is unknown, but the team in honing in on them. As they do the threat increases, the plot thickens, and lives hang in the balance. Ronie Kendig’s explosive ending to The Quiet Professionals Series will keep you reading with rapt attention! Over the course of the series Kendig has singled out individual team members and focused on how their unique personal struggles have impacted the overall mission. Her characters break the mold of popular Christian fiction because they are always a little edgy. In this book, Salvatore “Falcon” Russo is loyal to his brothers in arms, dedicated to the mission, protective, and occasionally hot-tempered. Falcon’s personal struggles with the guilt over his past choices carries a universal message to all Christians — see 2 Corinthians 7:10. The history he shares with Lt. Walker is complicated, which makes for an interesting romantic tension between the two. There is no room for weak leading ladies in Rapid-Fire Fiction. We saw it with Zahrah Zarrick in RAPTOR 6, as well as Fekiria from HAWK (both ladies make cameo appearances in FALCON). Now we see that the same is true of Lt. Cassandra Walker. While each woman possesses a physical beauty that makes them attractive to the men of Raptor, their bravery, intelligence, and fortitude place them in a class of their own. The women of Raptor are inspiring! If you have a passion for suspense fiction, FALCON is a must read! Get your copy today. 5-stars AuthorReview
