I loved the characters and especially the fact Kayla is strong enough not to let this serial killer beat her down. Although she is struggling with the loss of her best friend Tony and this creepy dude, she is still persevering. I love the strength of all the characters in the book really and the author wasn't afraid of showing their weaknesses as well, for it made a better read. I don't like "superman" type books, no one in real life is that perfect but this book was pretty damn close!

He was also trying to cope with being a single dad Very good book. He was also trying to cope with being a single dad.
I loved Gabe's patience with his son, as they got to know each other. I also liked the way that Dakota stepped in to help protect Kayla.

Vampire Hunter a runaway good fortune. I have had the opportunity to tweet with Ronie over time and have grown to love and respect her even more! She's worth checking into and picking up a great read! View all 3 comments.

She kindly offered to send me a copy of her debut novel Dead Reckoning and I finished it on one day, staying up till the wee hours of the morning. From the first page I was hooked!

Being a lover of history I've always had a respect for and interest in archaeology so it was easy for me to like underwater archaeologist, Shiloh Blake and her best friend Khalid Khan.
Did I mention that from the very first chapter there is enough "edge of your seat" action to give a body a heart attack? It is so good! A lot of the suspense that I've read has had one or two scenes that made my pulse race but Dead Reckoning does not let up, it's nonstop action from start to finish. Assassinations, kidnappings, nuclear weapons, spies, and terrorists all in the exotic setting of Mumbia, throw in not one but two romances involving our main character, Shiloh and you have a suspenseful and thrilling read that will knock your socks off!
I highly recommend this book to anyone guys that means you too who loves a great story! I think the author is like me and has a thing for all things fast, like motorbikes!
This book's hero owns a Ducati and Nightshade's hero drives a Hayabusa! From the very first chapter I was thrust into a fast-pace thriller through the streets of Mumbai to the depths of the Indian Ocean.
The plot was fast-paced and intriguing, the setting was described in great detail and you could cut the suspense with a knife. Mithesa rated it really liked it Dec 05, Write a review Psy Mind: Refresh and try again. Billie Jo rated it liked it Jan 01,
More than the plot, the characters are what I loved most about this story. It's a rather extensive cast but the depth of personality Ronie Kendig provides for each character makes them jump off the page. I appreciated the strong female lead in Shiloh Blake but also the balance of weakness Ms.
Kendig employs to create a desire and need for the hunky hero, Reece Jaxon From the very first chapter I was thrust into a fast-pace thriller through the streets of Mumbai to the depths of the Indian Ocean. Kendig employs to create a desire and need for the hunky hero, Reece Jaxon. There's a quote at the beginning of the novel and it's perfect for the way these two characters fill the need in the other-making them whole.
The plot has plenty of twists and turns that even an adrenaline junkie would have a hard time putting the book down. Jul 27, Sheri Salatin rated it it was amazing Shelves: Shiloh Blake finds herself in the middle of an international nuclear arms clash. As a daughter of a top-notch CIA agent, she was trained to trust her senses. It is the only that has kept her alive after surviving an attack on her small diving boat and friends. Now she's on the run and one of the men chasing her says that he is there to help her.
Can she believe him? What is it about him that puts her on edge? This book is an action-packed story. I will definitely be reading Shiloh Blake finds herself in the middle of an international nuclear arms clash. I will definitely be reading this one again and again. I borrowed it from our church library, but now I'm going to have to get my own copy.
This was my first book by Ronie Kendig and if all her books are this well-written and gripping, I will be her newest, biggest fan. The plot was well-thought out and the hooks at the end of each chapter had me reading late into the night. If you like intrigue and modern day suspense, this is the book for you! Jan 12, Aerykah rated it it was amazing Shelves: It's fast paced and kept my complete attention from the beginning to the end. I haven't gotten that into a book or finished one that fast in months.
I'll certainly be keeping my eye out for some more books by Ronie Kendig. She has quickly become one of my very favorite authors. Jan 21, Bonnie Calhoun rated it it was amazing. Really loved this book. Wish the series had progressed.
Shiloh was a great character with a lot of spunk and the international intrigue moved fast and remained compelling throughout. Mar 29, Jan Crow rated it it was amazing. Sep 25, Christine Wright rated it it was amazing. A real page turner. I highly recommend this author!! May 09, Leah rated it it was amazing Shelves: Wow this was an intense book! Tons of action and adventure. The romance was so good! I loved to plot and the different twist's. I cant wait to read more by Ronie Kendig!
Nope I tried, I really tried to like this book. The main female character is an immature, whiny baby, who apparently thinks the world revolves around her. I was very disappointed the way the author portrayed her.
The main male character was just not believable at all. From what I know of CIA agents, they have to lie, steal, and sometimes kill I don't think a Christian would make a very good agent! I think that the age difference between them was muc Nope I tried, I really tried to like this book. I think that the age difference between them was much too large, 32 and 24, so all the male lead got was a stupid, whiny child, who likes to throw tantrums to get her way, as a love interest.
I really can't see that happening in the real world, and if it does, I doubt it would last long. As for the actual story line, I was confused.
The story jumped around way too much for me, and a lot of the relationships between different the characters mentioned did not make sense. I assumed they were there to fawn over the female lead and egg her on into situations where she had no business being. I'm not sure how this book got so many good ratings, but it didn't do it for me.

Together they unravel a deadly mystery, whilst fighting for their lives. What did I like about this book? The depth of the world created by Kendig was certainly an asset. The descriptive markets, clothing and atmosphere of Mumbai, to the beautiful underwater world of the Arabian Sea. I really felt like I was amongst the smells and textures which graced the page. But that wasn't all there was to like about this book. The secret life of a deep cover spy was well portrayed. Not necessarily a pretty place to be, but a gritty, life-on-the-line existence required in order to keep his country and fellow countrymen safe.
It felt a little like The Bourne Identity , not such a bad thing, as I've always felt Robert Ludlum did a great job of demystifying the role of a spy. But wait, there's more! The dialogue was simply lovely, wrapping you up in the psyche of the characters with ease I always feel a book captures my heart when there are worthy paragraphs or sentences to quote, when I choose to re-read a section purely because it was delightfully phrased. That's what grabs a reader and pulls them in. Shiloh has spirit, she's a survivor, having been taught by the best.
Her estranged father is also a top CIA agent, and brought her up to be aware of inconsistencies around her and to trust her gut instincts. Who was this woman? He was easy to like, capable, strong, fiercely protective and with the heart of lion. His slow realisation of his feelings towards Shiloh and the position it put them both in, was heart wrenching and captivating. It developed at such a leisurely pace, with such beautifully descriptive phrases, that you simply never wanted it to end.
Like an unfurling of an exquisite flower, petal by petal. Even better, was the doubt and disappointment which clouded this attraction and made it feel that much more realistic. Well yes, and this is where I probably should have read a few more reviews before picking this one up, but really would they have stopped me? This was, surprisingly, a Christian Book. I admit I've never read a Christian Book before and wasn't even aware of this story falling into that category until well past half way, simply because it wasn't forced down our throats, but at some stage Kendig must have decided to up the ante, because as the book progressed, so did the bible quotes and references to being a good Christian.
Even more annoying, was the obvious lack of swearing. I understand being a Christian Book, swearing is perhaps frowned upon, but I can't help thinking a harden CIA operative, trained to kill and endure torture when necessary, wouldn't be afraid of the odd cuss.

No way would they have said that. But, despite these minor grievances, and they were minor, this book was a delight. I truly enjoyed the world created, the mystery and life-on-the-line world of a spy and most of all, the gorgeous, slow unravelling of love, true love, between two unlikely characters.
Kendig has even written more, so could I be a convert to Christian Books? Feb 02, Diana H. A thriller through and through. While this is technically Christian fiction, it doesn't read "preachy" at all.
