Falcon by Ronie Kendig | Book Review by Loraine Nunley

Synopsis of the book:

The day of deadly reckoning has arrived for Raptor Team and Warrant Officer Salvatore “Falcon” Russo is just the right mix of guts and grit to lead his brothers-in-arms against the Osiris hacker, Meng-Li Jin. Sal must cut through thick roots of bitterness and betrayal to take down the terrorist — but that means putting the team in the hands of Cassandra Walker. The last time he did that, two of the most important people in his life died. He will not make that mistake again.

Cassandra Walker knows three things: she has never loved any man besides Salvatore Russo, he hates her more than life itself, and her mission may destroy any chance of reconciliation.

The deeper Raptor digs for truth, the more betrayal seeps from the very fabric of their mission. Friends become spies and turncoats. Enemies morph into strange allies. As the tides turn and Sal rethinks his game plan, he is forced to trust Cassie again. And it might be the last time.

My review:

The suspense! Action from beginning to end. Who can Raptor trust? I didn’t know but I had to keep turning the pages to find out. Great read.

I have to admit that I didn’t like Sal in the previous books and that stayed with me for much of this book, but I really felt for him and all of the other soldiers. How do they deal with the stress of the job and the evil that they come in contact with every day? My heart ached for all of our soldiers. It took him some time to begin to let go of his bitterness and anger but I was glad to see him begin to heal by the end of the story.

Cassie. Hmm. I wanted to like her but she kept doing things that made her tough to like. At the end of it all though, I was rooting for her because she is what we all are – sinners in need of a savior.

Finally I received closure – Raptor discovers the truth and justice is served. It was agonizing and sweet at the same time.

What I enjoyed most about this book:

Though agonizing, I have to say that I loved the twists and turns in this story. Just when I thought I knew who and what I could trust, the author surprised me.

What I didn’t like about this book:

Lots of characters had me getting a little lost at times and there was some darkness that shed light on possible realities for our soldiers that I wish they did not have to face.

My rating:  4 out of 5 stars

Would I recommend this book to others?  Yes, particularly if you read the other books in the series. This one provides the closure because it answers all the unanswered questions from the other books. This is the third book in this series.

Note: I received this book in a giveaway. I was not required to give a positive review. All of the opinions I have expressed are my own.
