Simply follow the instructions contained in the Rafflecopter widget below and remember you can gain extra entries by following the prompts. The giveaway is open until midnight on 8th November.

Now, for my thoughts on this fabulous story… Hawk


Raptor’s communications expert, Staff Sergeant Brian “Hawk” Bledsoe is struggling with his inner demons, leaving him on the verge of an “other than honorable” discharge. Plagued with corrupted intel, Raptor team continues to track down the terrorist playing chess with their lives.

Afghan pilot Fekiria Haidary is devastated when a systems glitch on her aircraft forces a weapons launch on a safe target. And when the deadly bombing separates Brian from the team, he must make an impossible choice: save his brothers-in-arms, or save the woman and children depending on him to survive a brutal snowstorm.

My endorsement:~

There’s nothing quite like a Ronie Kendig reading experience and Hawk, her second Quiet Professionals novel, is chock full of all the goodies Ronie treats her readers to, with her supremely talented pen! The insidious plot against Raptor team continues to grow as Hawk finds himself torn between honor, duty, and his own conscience as his poorly held self-control leads him to make a promise to a woman who is leading a double life, one that could see her killed. High level suspense and non stop action, always evident in Ronie’s writing, complement the complex personalities of Hawk and Fekiria – both revealing flaws and vulnerabilities – against a backdrop of the Afghan mountains, as stunning as they are inhospitable. The layers to her characters and story always impress and the tender and emotive moments are not limited to Fekiria and Hawk. I love the scenes with Hawk and his grandpa, with Fekiria and Mitra, and always the interaction between the dedicated and diverse men of Raptor team. The rigours of war, the heart wrenching pain of soldiers dealing with the upheaval to their families at home, and the cultural and social restrictions on Muslim women are all explored in the tantalising and engaging novel. Get your hands on Hawk – whatever it takes!

With thanks to the author and Shiloh Run Press for my review copy

  72. I have not read Ronie’s books yet, but I have them on my TBR list. So many books, so little time! I am looking forward to reading them, they sound really good. Thanks for the giveaway.

  73. God bless :),
    I really enjoy your books. It’s great to be able to read a Christian book with action in it. I don’t like reading books that aren’t Christian based so it is hard to find some action/military/romance books. Keep up the wonderful work. God bless!!

  74. Eagle & Amy – oh, my heart!!!

  75. Looking forward to reading Hawk!

  76. This looks like a fabulous giveaway. Good luck to everyone!

  77. I really like all of her books but I think the Raptor 6 series has been the best. I can’t wait to read Hawk but am really looking forward to Falcon. I like how his character is developing.

  78. OH good grief, pick one favorite? That is like picking a favorite child. It just cannot be done with a Ronie Kendig book! The Nightshade series was just fantastic, the working dog series just can’t be beat, and then there is Raptor 6. Wow, just wow. Those of you who haven’t read any of hers yet? DO SO!! You won’t be sorry. :)

  79. My sister, step-daughter and I all enjoy Ronie Kendig books. Discarded Heroes was one of the best series I’ve read. I can’t wait to start reading the new series!!!

  80. Kelly Bridgewater

    I enjoyed reading Falcon 6. Can’t wait to read Hawk!

  81. IO have been enjoying The Breed Apart series. I have yet to read the others. As a military brat, I appreciate the Christian perspective and positive portrayal of our nation’s heroes. :)

  82. I would have to say Raptor 6. I love how fast paced it is and how it uses both teams, who I grew to love each of the members!

  83. Raptor 6 brought out something new, I think, in Ronie’s writing. Something I really liked! Without giving anything away, I love the ending… :)

  84. Nightshade is my favorite with Max.

  85. I just got Raptor 6 on Kindle and haven’t read it yet so I can’t pick a favorite character. Although I’ve started it and I already love the research and depth into the writing. Can’t wait to read these books!

  86. Rapid Fire Fiction represents one of only two sources of reading material my husband and I both enjoy.

    He appreciates the accuracy about military life. I get hooked by the characters and relationships. The plots always keep us engaged.

    Go, Ronie Kendig!

  87. I have read several of Ronie’s books and enjoyed them all!

  88. Firethorn was a book that I could not put down. Thank you Ronie for writing suspenseful and action-packed stories.

  89. Just read Raptor 6… omg… it was awesome…can’t wait to read the next one!!!

  90. Hello Relz. Had computer problem and lost my comment. I’ve nor read any of Ronie’s books, but this would be a good chance to read lots of them if I could just win this.It sounds very exciting and suspenseful. I don’t have a favorite character yet since not read any, but seems like Hawk is going to be a good one. Thanks for this give-away. Maxie

  91. I love Ronie’s books and put them on my list of gifts I want for Christmas and birthday’s. I even forgive her for killing off the black German Shepherd in “Trinity”.

  92. Do I have to pick? Can’t I just say all of them and have that be that? 😉

    In all seriousness though, I think my favorite characters were probably the dogs from the “A Breed Apart” trilogy

  93. I love all her books! It’s just too hard to choose a favorite!

  94. I have a few of Ronie’s books downloaded on my kindle, but have not read them yet. After reading the review I will definitely be moving them up on my list.

  95. CANNOT wait to read this book! It sounds so stinkin’ amazing-as Ronie’s books always do! It is next to impossible to pick favorites since I love them all but the ones that stick in my mind the most are Canyon from Wolfsbane, Heath from Trinity, Aspen from Talon, and Dean from Raptor 6!

  96. I love, love, love Ronie’s books. I was left on edge with Raptor 6 and just now started listening to Hawk. Thank you, Ronie, for writing, exciting, action packed, Christian books that I can feel proud to share with my friends!!

  97. I love the books I’ve read of Ronie’s…my daughter, Emilie Anne Hendryx, turned me on to her. Really enjoyed Beowulf, the last one I read. I need to start Raptor 6 (it’s on my Kindle)…I’m sure I will love it…can’t wait to read this new one too!

  98. I’ve only read Dead Reckoning, but I still remember enjoying it. Would love to have my hands on the rest. :)

  99. Haven’t read your books yet to know the favorite, but would love to start reading soon!

  100. I haven’t read any of Ronie Kending’s books as of yet, but I look forward to reading them. The titles are so captivating!

  101. I’ve loved all of Ronnie’s books. Have to say the Nightshade series are my favourite – even had my dad reading them! They have been read many times and lent out to many friends as well!

  102. What a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win.

  103. I actually have not read any of Ronie’s books, but have plans too! My husband is really interested in this latest series and that says a lot from him as he is not much of a reader! Thank you for the great giveaway and congrats on the latest release Ronie! 😀

  104. Cannot wait to read the Nightshade series! I loved “Trinity” and “Talon” and need to get a copy of “Beowulf” ASAP. And so excited to read “Raptor 6” too! So many good books to anticipate!

  105. I have not read any yet, so cannot share any thoughts other than it would be really awesome to win a set of these books in the giveaway. I love discovering new (to me) authors.

  106. My favorite Kendig novel is Wolfsbane. It digs deep into the spiritual–succumbing to sin, remorse, repentance, forgiveness–and shows that God can take a broken vessel and still use it for His glory! Plus, it had all the cool action and suspense that kept me glued to my chair until I finished the book :)

  107. I’ve been a fan of Ronie for a long time and I love her Discarded Heroes series! Canyon was my fave hero of that series. :)

  108. Trinity has been my favorite of her books I have read so far!

  109. I LOVED Beowulf!! I could not put it down and within a week read it 3 times! Thank you Ronie for creating such GREAT books!

  110. I loved trinity! It was such a GREAT book!!!! Me and my daughter love your books!!!
