Description

Captain Dean Watters keeps his mission and his team in the forefront of his laser-like focus. So when these two things are threatened by hackers, Dean's Special Forces training kicks into high gear. Failing to stop the 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, endangering the US national security, Dean is forced to crack the lockbox around his heart--a move that might come at the highest cost.

Dean Watters and his Special Forces team do missions that no other team could do, but when one is called home, it leaves the team shorthanded just as they find evidence of a sinister threat that could endanger soldiers all over the world. And then there's the other interference of Zahrah Zarrick,

the village children's teacher. Not only has she interrupted his mission, now she IS his mission. And he can't take his eyes off her.

Ronie Kendig is one of the best thriller authors out there. I have a confession: sometimes when I read a book I mentally check off the elements of a novel, i.e., foreshadowing, character development, the dark moment, etc. Raptor 6 sucked me into the story and held me there until the very end, so schedule your time accordingly.

Our military heroes go through so much more than I can imagine. (And by heroes, I mean everyone who serves.) I'm so grateful that they would willingly put themselves situations that could become as terrifying as those that the author describes in Raptor 6. This work, although fiction, gives us civilians a tiny idea of what our military is willing to go through to preserve our freedom.

And even though Kendig is known for thriller/action/adventure, the romance between Dean and Zahrah is out-of-this-world. These two connected on all levels: intellectual, emotional, spiritual and yes, even physical. I cried more than once during their highly-charged romance.

You'd don't have to love military novels to love this book. Thriller and adventure fans will enjoy the fast-paced exploits of all the members of the Raptor 6 team.

I'd like to thank LitFuse Publicity for my copy of Raptor 6 in exchange for my fair and impartial review.

What can I say? Ronie Kendig is an extremely gifted writer that not only weaves believable plots and scenarios, but, for a time, transplants you into a different place and culture. All good books should do this, but it's my opinion Ms. Kendig does a better job than most.

Raptor 6 is exciting,

fast-paced, and riddled with so much gut-twisting and heart-stopping action that I recommend you have more than an hour to yourself. Once you start reading this novel, you won't want to put it down.

Dean Watters is the epitome of soldier-dom. Tough, handsome, rugged, and plenty of wow mixed up into one hunky alpha-male. Need I say more? And his counterpart, Zahrah Zarrick is what every woman wishes she could be; smart, classy, morally upstanding, and desirable. Mix these two together, the Taliban, guns and explosives, and you have a winning novel that you will enjoy.

Due to some of the content, I would recommend this to an older, more mature reader. War is not pretty, and sometimes what mankind does to mankind is terrible and Ms. Kendig writes a realistic portrayal of a war and struggle that is often ugly.

military-stye action.

Meet, Zahrah Zarrick, a missionary teacher in Mazar-e Sharif,she teaches Afghan children and Captain Dean Waters(Raptor 6), ex-military Special Forces team.

Engaging characters, high-octane action, and a plot to die for, literary with a sweet romance on the side. Just one reminds me of the "Nightshare" series, which I loved, by the way.

Ms. Kendig, will grab you on the first page and not let you go, even on the very last page. She has done the Military proud with her true to life stories, and the way she honors their heroism, and their fight for freedom. I can't wait for the next installment. You know by the ending, this is NOT the ending, just, the beginning! A must read Military Suspense! Well done, indeed! Received for an honest review.

RATING: 4.5
