Dead Reckoning by Ronie Kendig (and giveaway)


A Rapid-Fire Rewrite–Expanded & Updated–14,000 new words!

A deadly encounter in the Arabian Sea becomes a fight for her life!

Underwater archaeologist Shiloh Blake finds herself in the middle of an international nuclear arms clash during her first large-scale dig and flees for her life. She doesn’t know who to trust or how to stay alive.

Intelligence operative Reece Jaxon is stunned when a fiery diver interrupts a site he’s been monitoring. To protect his mission, he must protect Shiloh. It’s the only way to draw out those behind a plot to restructure the political map.

Defying her vow to never get involved with a spy, Shiloh falls into a deep web of intrigue and danger that might just get her killed.

My original take:~

Remind me never to end up as a character in a Ronie Kendig novel! Danger and intrigue lurk around every corner and just when you think safety is in sight, the hammer of heartache drops again, hurtling Shiloh Blake deeper into jeopardy. Then there is Reece Jaxon…okay, on second thoughts maybe I do want to be in her books, after all 😉

Brilliantly executed in every way, Ronie Kendig has a winner on her hands with her debut novel, Dead Reckoning. The non stop action, fuelled by Shiloh’s spirited personality and the indefatigable CIA agent Reece Jaxon’s dedication to his mission, is breathtaking and enthralling. While the attraction between Shiloh and Reece is palpable, Ronie doesn’t settle for a predictable romance, as Shiloh struggles with feelings for her dearest friend. Complex characters and relationships are plentiful. The setting of Mumbai, India increases the exotic appeal of this story but it is the relentless turmoil and the compelling writing that set this novel apart.

Readers who have been bemoaning the loss of Dee Henderson’s writing, need complain no more! Ronie Kendig ups the stakes in Dead Reckoning, reminiscent of Jennifer Garner and Alias in novel form.

My updated take:~

I adored diving back into the updated version of Dead Reckoning! Ronie has used the additional word count brilliantly, adding even more depth to an already multi-layered story, fleshing out Shiloh’s backstory and her complicated relationship with her father. Well worth adding to your collection of Ronie Kendig’s high octane novels whether you have the first edition or not!

  1. This was the first Ronie Kendig book that I read and I loved it! I had no idea there was a “revamped” version. Exciting!

  2. I think I’d choose scuba dive….mostly because I can’t imagine a skydive that doesn’t end badly!

  3. Thank you for your updated review, Rel. So glad you enjoyed the new content and felt it added to the story. I loved getting to put things back in that were edited out previously.

  4. I have read several of Ronie’s books,they are hard to put down once you start reading! There is no way I could pick a favorite as I enjoy them all.

  5. Neither.

  6. I’ve been skydiving and loved it!

  7. Scuba! Water is much more forgiving if I fall than the ground.

  8. Though I have friends and brothers who are convinced that they could persuade me to do one or both of these… There is no way I’m doing either! 😐

  9. So excited to read this new edition! I absolutely loved the original and this gives me the perfect excuse for a reread!
    I don’t think I’d enjoy scuba diving or skydiving but if forced to choose I’d probably pick skydiving since I had a childhood fear of water that still shows up at times!

  10. Neither! Yikes.

  11. SCUBA DIVE lol don’t think that I could get myself to jump out of a plane or from a high place!!!

  12. How about feet on the ground?

    I wouldn’t say I’m afraid of heights–I can look up at really tall trees without a problem, hike in the mountains without a moment’s pause (save for breath), and in general appreciate things that go really high up. But depths, now . . . I will admit to a fear of depths. Especially really deep depths, including but not limited to from really high heights. Both skydiving and scuba diving involve depths a little greater than I care for. But I can read about them quite happily!

  13. I would choose scuba diving because you can see all of the different creatures that live in the water

  14. Either one would be way out of my comfort zone! 😉

  15. I couldn’t pick either one. I’m not going to jump out of a plane or swim underwater in the ocean.

  16. Scuba diving has always sounded kind of interesting. Thanks for the giveaway!

  17. I’ve always wanted to scuba dive :) I loved reading this book in its original version – can’t wait to read the new version! Thanks heaps Rel and Ronnie :)

  18. Oh my! I don’t think I could do either of those but scuba diving always sounded interesting because of the underwater plants and creatures. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  19. Neither, I like my feet on solid ground.

    I haven’t read Dead Reckoning yet, would love to win it. :)

  20. Scuba, I guess. While I like breathing on my own without tanks… I would take that over jumping out of a plane any day!!

  21. I like to keep my feet on dry ground, but would consider scuba-diving. I love ocean life.

  22. Scuba dive, if I had to pick

  23. Both. I have nevery tried either. However, it would be easier for me to get to skydive than scuba dive.

  24. Definitely scuba dive. I always fantasized about being a marine biologist!

  25. I’d definitely say scuba. I love the water but I also feel like there’s more to explore with scuba diving than with skydiving.
