Review (Christian Fiction): Wolfsbane (Discarded Heroes, Book 3) by Ronie Kendig
Wolfsbane (Discarded Heroes, Book 3)
by Ronie Kendig
From the publisher:
Embark upon a danger-laden mission within the pages of Ronie Kendig’s riveting Wolfsbane. Demolitions expert Danielle Roark thought escaping from a brutal Venezuelan general was a challenge. Now she’s charged with espionage and returned to the jungle where a new nightmare begins. Will Dani survive or become just another political pawn destined to be lost forever? Former Green Beret Canyon Metcalfe is disgusted with the suits on Capitol Hill. Still wrestling with the memories of a mission gone bad, he and Nightshade launch a mission to find Dani. Can Canyon rescue Dani, armed with nothing but raw courage?
Canyon "Midas" Metcalfe a member of the Nightshade black ops team is tortured by his past and pain has manifested itself both emotionally and physically and it has him in a death grip. Danielle Roark, an explosives expert who was captured and tortured after a mission gone wrong in the jungles of South America is at the end of her rope until the handsome Metcalfe brothers come to her rescue time and again. Both Canyon and Dani must face the horrors of the past, risking death at the hands of a sadistic terrorist or the possibility of a lifetime of imprisonment for crimes they didn't commit.
As a fan of the Discarded Heroes series it's hard to wait patiently for the next book. I know that it's going to be suspenseful and romantic but that's about as predictable as this series gets. With each book I'm totally shocked and surprised by the bad guy, the setting plot twists but most of all by Ronie Kendig's ability to make me feel connected to the story. Wolfsbane, the latest installment in this thrilling series is no different. I started the book before bed vowing to read a chapter or two and I ended up tearing through over half of the book. The storyline and the suspense grabbed me by the throat and tore at my heart so that I could not set it aside.
Every second of this book took me on a journey. From the rain-soaked jungles to the courtroom to crazy dangerous secret missions to almost as dangerous family get togethers, each step of Dani and Canyon's is a challenge that you get to experience with them. The best thing about Wolfsbane are these "real" characters who make real-life mistakes. Sure, most of us aren't a part of a covert ops team but we are exposed to some of the same difficult choices and crossroads on our faith walks that Dani and Canyon faced.
Wolfsbane is by far my favorite of the series. I stand in awe of these incredible books and the uber-talented Ronie Kendig. If there are only a few books that you add to your "to-read" list this year make sure one of them is Wolfsbane! You won't regret it. Trust me.
