Ronie Kendig has out done herself!! Williow is a hard story that is raw, emotional, and filled with more page turning tension than any book I’ve read this year! Do not miss this amazing addition to the Metcalfe Family!

Willow Metcalfe is not like the rest of her family; she has found her own place in the world helping survivors of trafficking through the healing process. When the compound she works at is attacked by the Nigerian Mafia, she is taken hostage and is thrown firsthand into the horrors she has only heard about. One of her captors turns out to be working against the evil men; Chijioke “Chiji” Okorie has worked with Willow’s brother for years. Now, he has returned home to try and find his sister who was taken years ago. Chiji goes undercover in the trafficking ring to try and find her and bring her home when he finds Willow. Having seen her in a picture with her family, he has thought of her often over the years and knew she was the one he would one day marry. At first Willow doesn’t trust this man with the group that has taken her, but something about him changes her thoughts and she begins to trust him and hope that he can be the one to help save her before it is too late.

Ronie Kendig is really amazing me with this new series. I have enjoyed her writing for years, but this is my favorite series of hers by far. The way she has written the characters in these books have hooked me faster than most authors have ever been able to and kept me glued to the pages with all the feels for what is happening. I am deeply invested with the characters both from Stone and now Willow. This second book in the series was darker and harder material to read about but it was handled in a way that readers will get a sense of the darkness in the world without feeling like anything has gone too far to make it not appropriate to read. This is a book dealing with hard topics and the normal, Christian fiction readers that go for Ronie Kendig and her writing may have a hard time with this one because of the evil portrayed but nothing within the pages made it too much for me. It was packed with tension in all the right ways to keep my heart pounding and emotions high for these characters. It doesn’t always have to be a gun battle or high-speed car chase to make it a thriller or create tension, simple acts can do that and Ronie Kendig accomplished that in all the right places in this book. I recommend this book to readers that are looking for a tension laced action packed read that will be hard to put down and oh so good to think about long after the final page is finished.
