Nightshade by Ronie Kendig (with giveaway)

The fabulously talented Ronie Kendig has re-released the first book in her Discarded Heroes series, Nightshade. I’m thrilled this book is available once again. I re-read the updated Nightshade two weeks ago and fell in love with Syd, Max, and the team all over again! I’m re-posting my original review and encourage all my readers to get their hands on this stellar novel. The perfect purchase on Memorial Day!


A Rapid-Fire Rewrite!

This combat veteran is fighting a new battle–the homefront!

Former Navy SEAL Max Jacobs is one such hero, and now his war is for his family. Post-traumatic stress disorder, brought on from his times in battle, has ravaged his emotions. Rage explodes out of him with no warning and it’s destroying his marriage.

All his wife Sydney wants is the man she married back. But he’s lost, buried deep beneath his anger. Sydney files for separation and throws herself into her work as a journalist.

But when Sydney hunts down the soldiers behind a string of heroic interventions, she starts getting death threats. Finding the perfect ending for her story might get her perfectly killed. Max realizes what Sydney has entangled herself in and will stop at nothing to save her, but even he might not be able to rescue her from a world of intrigue and danger that she cannot imagine.

My take:~

Make room Dee Henderson, tip your hat Chuck Holton, Ronie Kendig has well and truly arrived and stamped her authority in the suspense genre! There are writers who excell at characterisation, others pace their stories to perfection while some can write a love story that touches the soul yet rarely have I seen those talents combined…until now! Just like the Hayabusa motorbike Max Jacobs rides, Nightshade is a powerful and electrifying read, accelerating through danger at breakneck speed and stirring deep emotion as Max and Sydney watch their marriage disintegrate and danger come to their door. Ronie’s ability to capture the male perspective is mind blowing as Max struggles to assimilate after his tours of duty in Afghanistan, finding safety and acceptance only in returning to high risk black ops missions. Men and women alike will find themselves captivated by Ronie’s exceptional talent and I can confidently say Nightshade is a book you will be unable to put down. The sequel, Digitalis, simply can’t come soon enough for me!

With thanks to the author for my updated copy of Nightshade
