Crown of Souls by Ronie Kendig

Crown of Souls by Ronie Kendig
Six months after stopping a deadly plague, Cole "Tox" Russell and his team are enjoying a little rest. That peace is short-lived when a sniper shot hits Tox. The enemy is discovered to be one of their own, a rogue Special Forces team operator.

Alec King is perhaps the only person as skilled as Tox, and he's out for justice. Furious with orders that got his men killed, he intends to make those responsible pay. And he insists Tox join him, believing they are the same breed of soldier. 

Afraid his old friend is right, Tox battles a growing darkness within himself as he and his team engage in another deadly encounter with antiquity. It appears Alec is cheating--he's using a mysterious artifact, a crown that history has linked to some of the worst slaughters in humanity. Racing to stop Alec before his vengeance is unleashed, Tox must fight the monster without becoming one.

My Thoughts:

Buckle up butter cup because Tox has returned and he ain't holding back.

Cole "Tox" Russell and his team are home and enjoying a new "normal" when their lives are thrust into yet another mission--and this one's personal. An ancient crown that carries a lethal legend; imminent danger to those Tox loves; and a past that won't let him believe there's hope. Reading this story is like watching an epic Indiana Jones adventure... on steroids.

What I love about Ms. Kendig's writing is her ability to make the words come alive on every page. There wasn't a second when I didn't feel like I was living and breathing these character's lives with them. I enjoyed getting to the guts of Tox's personality and discover what drives him and what scares him. The tension those revelations bring to his relationship with Haven and his team felt authentic and believable. The undercurrent of theme rang true to both the plot and characters and added a richness to the story I appreciated.

While the atmosphere within these pages is intense, Ms. Kendig's ability to masterfully create dimensional characters allow them to escort readers through the emotional highs and lows of a plot that does not quit. The historical and mythical content of the storyline was riveting and I couldn't turn the pages quick enough.

Ms. Kendig's Rapid-Fire Fiction never fails to satisfy readers looking for high-caliber fiction but Crown of Souls kicks epic story-telling to a thrilling level that will not disappoint!
