Ronie Kendig is an all around great lady. She is one of the handful of authors I am blessed to have as a Facebook friend, and it is nice to get a glimpse into an author's life and see how ordinary they are. She may lead an ordinary life, but she is an extraordinary author. She had me at her first book, which was suspense. She then went on to find her true niche in military fiction that has suspense and drama. With each book and series she writes, she only gets better.
This whole series has been a roller coaster of non-stop action, drama, and suspense. Each novel in the trilogy has focused on a different member of an elite team of special ops soldiers, and this one focused on Salvatore Russo, or "Falcon." Although the book centers on him, there is a continuing mystery and drama that has been going on through all three books that also takes center stage in the book.
I was given this book to be an "influencer." They wanted people to help promote the book, and there are suggestions given as to how to do that. If you don't like the book, there are a couple of things to do. I didn't even read that part. The fact that I wouldn't like this book didn't even enter my mind. I knew I would. and I did. This was a fantastic conclusion to this great series, and it was so good, Ronie may scramble to do a series of the same caliber for her next project. But I have faith.
Readers have had a glimpse into the character of Falcon in the other books, but since he was the central person in this book, we learned even more about him. And he turned out to be an even more interesting and complex person than we had seen. Since this is the final book in the trilogy, a lot had to be wrapped up, which made for an even more action-packed novel. A lot happens in the book, and the identity of the mole is finally revealed. Ronie did an excellent job of keeping that a secret, and I was totally surprised.
There were a couple of other surprises in the book. You never know when someone might get killed, or appear to be killed. And people are not always who they seem to be.
As with any of Ronie's books, I could not put it down. It was full of drama, military action and suspense, faith, and romance. I completely, 100% enjoyed the book and loved the ending. And though the book is definitely Christian in content, that element is woven seamlessly through the book and isn't what some would call overbearing or "preachy." Not everyone has a miraculous conversion before the end of the book, but that isn't needed to have great Christian fiction.
I definitely recommend this book, and all of Ronie's books. This is the third and final book in the Quiet Professionals Series, and the books should be read in order. The first book is Raptor 6, and the second is Hawk.
