Soul Raging, The Book of Wars #3 by Ronie Kendig


Book description: 

As Prophecies in the Book of the Wars Unfold, the Only Hope Is Uniting with the Enemy.

Leif Metcalfe is done waiting for answers and seizes control, a move that comes with a high price and a deadly risk: teaming up with the enemy. He can only pray what he uncovers will heal the wounds he's inflicted on those he loves.

Iskra Todorova refuses to believe Leif is irrevocably lost, despite evidence to the contrary. While trying to protect her daughter and track down Leif before it's too late, Iskra wonders if a member of the evil organization ArC has been in their midst since the beginning.

Torn apart by injuries and opposing views about Leif's treachery, team Reaper hunts one of their own. The only thing they agree on is not stopping but starting the final battle prophesied in the Book of the Wars.

My review:

   I have been looking forward to this third and last book in this series ever since the second one ended on a cliffhanger. And it was a major cliffhanger....Kendig left her readers wondering if he hero of the series was possibly on the wrong side.

   Soul Raging is full of non stop action bouncing back and forth between Germany and the US. I'll admit the author had me wondering who the good guys really were for parts of the book. Leif is a very likable character no matter where the reader thinks his loyalties lie. I admit there were times I wasn't sure what was going on or where the book was going, but it had me pulled in so deep I had to keep reading and hope for the best.

  The same characters were back from the first two books, and the interplay between them was interesting and entertaining. Iskra was one I didn't like at first, but she grew on me and became one of my favorite characters in the series.

 This was most likely the most suspenseful of the three books in the series, and the one that had the most action. This book is proof that Kendig just keeps getting better with each book and series she writes.

  I like happy endings, and Soul Raging had a great ending that left me with that satisfied feeling I have when I finish a great book.

I was provided a copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions in this review are my own.
