In celebration of our freedom, here is a review of Raptor 6 by Ronie Kendig. Ms. Kendig writes military based novels with a hint of romance. In every novel I’ve read of hers (I think all of the ones she’s published), she strives to honor our servicemen and women.
Captain Dean Watters keeps his mission and his team in the forefront of his laser-like focus. So when Dean’s mission and team are threatened, his Special Forces training kicks into high gear. Failing to stop hackers from stealing national security secrets from the military’s secure computers and networks isn’t an option. Zahrah Zarrick is a missionary teacher to Afghan children in Mazar-e Sharif. And a target. When Zahrah is captured because of her expertise in quantum cryptology, compromising the US military, Dean is forced to crack the lockbox around his heart—a move that might come at the highest cost.
My Review: My fifteen-year-old daughter grabbed this one as soon as she found out I had it. Her first question when she was done was, “When’s the next one coming out?”
I had a hard time getting into this book, but I persevered because I KNOW that Ronie Kendig is an excellent writer. After the first chapter or so, I was hooked, as I knew I would be. Ms. Kendig managed to take us into the dark places we rarely think about–and would prefer not to experience–to give us what I assume is a fairly accurate portrayal of life as a special forces serviceman/woman. In her typical manner, she showed us the dangers they face every day as they fight for our freedom.
Kudos to Ronie Kendig for another excellent book, though the romantic in me would have preferred a bit more romance. 🙂
