You all know I am a HUGE fan of Ronie Kendig’s books. I’ve read — and loved — each and every book that she’s ever published, and I hope to continue to be up to date with her works. 🙂 Her newest release, Raptor 6, is another wonderful military suspense read that will keep you turning the pages long into the night!
Normally, Kendig’s opening scene has you hitting the ground running — and not slowing down until the final chapter! I felt Raptor 6 was a little different than this. It starts with an intense opening scene, but then goes back 6 months and shows how the character got there. But that’s not to say that it was hard to get into or too slow — oh no! There was still TONS of twists and surprises that kept me holding my breath throughout the book! I don’t think Kendig could ever write a dull book! It’s just not in her blood! But I did enjoy the change in tempo, teasing the reader with a sneak-peak and then allowing things to simmer and build before you find out what happens next. 🙂
As a little caution for readers: there were a few torture scenes in this book. Wolfsbane had a scene, but this was a bit more intense. If you don’t like to read any kind of torture scenes, this might make you a bit uncomfortable. But that’s the beauty of a book — you can skim over the torture scenes and still read enough to understand what’s going on and enjoy the book! I, personally, am not really comfortable reading/watching torture, so that part of the book did have me shuddering and wincing.
With all that said, I highly recommend that you give this book a try — especially if you enjoy military suspense books. This has it all, and more! There’s a beautiful love story that blossoms throughout the book between Dean and Zahrah, and of course there is lots of humor sprinkled generously throughout the book. Everything about this book was great! I can’t wait till the next book in the series come out! 🙂
