Product Description

Captain Dean Watters keeps his mission and his team in the forefront of his laser-like focus. So when Dean's mission and team are threatened, his Special Forces training kicks into high gear. Failing to stop hackers from stealing national security secrets from the military's secure computers and networks isn't an option. Zahrah Zarrick is a missionary teacher to Afghan children in Mazar-e Sharif. And a target. When Zahrah is captured because of her expertise in quantum cryptology, compromising the US military, Dean is forced to crack the lockbox around his heart-a move that might come at the highest cost.

Editorial Reviews

Ronie has really upped the ante with "Raptor 6″. I promise you, her books just keep getting better with each one published.

"Raptor 6″ is definitely a must read book. Don’t wait too long to pick up a copy.

RAPTOR 6 by Ronie Kendig is an exciting, heart pumping Inspirational Military Suspense. #1 in "The Quiet Professionals" and what a beginning! WOW!!

Fast paced, filled with action, romance, faith, secrets,hackers, a disappearance, danger, suspense, a bit of romance and lots of high-octane military-stye action.

Ms. Kendig, will grab you on the first page and not let you go, even on the very last page. She has done the Military proud with her true to life stories, and the way she honors their heroism, and their fight for freedom. I can't wait for the next installment. You know by the ending, this is NOT the ending, just, the beginning! A must-read Military Suspense! Well done, indeed!



I think this is probably the best of Kendig's novels I have read. The action is great and the character development superb. The romantic development is well done. The suspense at the end is breath taking.

This was a fast-paced book that kept me in suspense till the final page. Filled with real characters that face impossible situations with great faith, this book encouraged me to believe that nothing is impossible for God.

Another heart pounding summer read. Raptor 6 grips you at the start and doesn't let go until you are done.

A book that makes you question what you would do and forces you to look at our world, our military and the people who really exist in the midst of war.

The cost is very high and Ronie Kendig does a wonderful job of portraying war, life, death, politics, family, faith, strength and dignity in the presence of chaos.

This is a series to watch and an author to pay attention to as more books come out!

    Another excellent story by Ronie Kendig

    My fifteen-year-old daughter grabbed this one as soon as she found out I had it. Her first question when she was done was, "When's the next one coming out?"

    I had a hard time getting into this book, but I persevered because I KNOW that Ronie Kendig is an excellent writer. After the first chapter or so, I was hooked, as I knew I would be. Ms. Kendig managed to take us into the dark places we rarely think about--and would prefer not to experience--to give us what I assume is a fairly accurate portrayal of life as a special forces serviceman/woman. In her typical manner, she showed us the dangers they face every day as they fight for our freedom.

    Kudos to Ronie Kendig for another excellent book, though the romantic in me would have preferred a bit more romance. :)

    ***I received this book from the author/publisher in return for an honest review.

    Special Ops action and a passion for others!

    The heart doesn't choose an appropriate moment to stake its claim.

    That much Captain Dean "Raptor Six" Watters finds out in one big hurry. He and his team are situated in an area where tensions are high, and millions of lives hang in the balance. Ten military super-secure computers have "gone missing," and the military intelligence contained in their memories is close to being on the open-market.

    Zahrah Zarrick, a missionary teacher to Afghan children, is the unwitting key to this modern-day Pandora's Box. While her heart is on her sleeve for the children she's teaching, her expertise in quantum cryptology makes her the prime target for the hackers who are committed to the downfall of the United States.

    Raptor Six and his team are playing catch-up, as Zahrah disappears before they can make contact. With the clock ticking, Dean is finally coming to grips with the stakes that are at hand in this game - and the fact that his heart is "all in" just makes this one hand he cannot afford to lose.

    Ronie Kendig writes with a passion for Special Forces and their cause without reservation or apology. While some of the foreign language words and phrases are difficult to grasp at first, and with no a glossary dedicated only to military terminology and acronymns, it was a bit difficult for me to get a handle on some of the communication. However, the context eventually sorted it out for me; it just takes a little work. Which compels the dedicated reader that much further into the book. With Ronie Kendig at the helm - is this really a bad thing?

    5 stars for Special Ops action, suspense and a passion for others by Ronie Kendig!

    Ronie has created an incredible cast of characters for this novel. When I first looked over the list she included at the front of the book I felt very overwhelmed by the number of individuals that are integral to the story. But when I pushed that aside and started reading the story I was able to follow who was who simply by the wonderful way she introduced each one and described them. It was presented slowly as she needed to over the course of building the intricate plot in this story.

    She has a marvelous talent for describing surroundings and action that put me in the middle of things. The plot was very carefully woven with enough twists to keep me guessing as to where it was going.

    There were a handful of times that the point-of-view would change and I would deal with some momentary confusion as to who was talking. Backing up to the beginning of the section and re-reading was all it took to sort it out though.

    I'm looking forward to finding out the next segment of the overall story in the next book of this series.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Special Forces, Dean Watters, is dedicated to his mission and his team. When hackers steal ten military, highly secure computers he finds himself tangled up with a local - Zahrah Zarrick. With no desire to fall for a pretty face, he keeps a business barrier between them.

    Zahrah Zarrick, daughter of a retired military general, finds herself in harm's way as a missionary teacher to Afghan children. Her degree in quantum cryptology makes her a prime target for terrorists. It's Captain Dean Watters' mission to rescue her when she goes missing, but what he doesn't plan on is getting emotionally attached in the process.

    This was my first book to read by Ronie Kendig. Even though it wasn't a genre I typically pursue, I found Raptor 6 to be a riveting tale that kept me turning the pages. Now I'm hooked and can't wait to read the second tale in this saga.

    This book was provided free for review by Shiloh Run Press, 2014.
