All the action of Kendig’s signature military thrillers combined with a little suspense and mystery as well as the likes of Indiana Jones thrown in the mix makes this an upcoming must read series!
Cole “Tox” Russell is a Special Forces operative and is used to being in tight spots full of danger. None of his previous missions will be anything like the one he now faces: a plague taking over villages, an ancient artifact has been stolen, and the president of the United States kidnapped! Tox and his team are sent to find and rescue the president and keep the plague from spreading. Before they are able to make much progress, they are sidelined when the toxin starts affecting the team. The only ones who know anything about this toxin have now been taken. Tox and the team will have to face their toughest challenges to try and save them all.
As the introduction novella to the new series, The Tox Files, Kendig has started things with a bang. The intensity here starts on page one and doesn’t let up till the very end leaving things open for the first full book in the series. I have just recently gotten into Ronie Kendig books and am finding that I enjoy them more as I read them. There was a lot of back and forth dialogue between Tox and his military men as well as Tziva and the archeologist dealing with the missing artifact and the danger it poses with the virus it releases. Fortunately, being a novella didn’t give the action a chance to lighten up any making it an extremely fast read and very enjoyable. Kendig has made a name for herself in the Christian writing world with her fast paced military thrillers and this will surely make the list of to be read. I recommend this to all that enjoy a fast paced thriller with some fun archeological elements mixed in.
