Exhilarating. Fast-paced. Action-packed. Romantic. These are just some of the words describe that this book in a nutshell. When you start it, you won’t want to put it down. I’ve been looking forward to this book since Trinity came out and it didn’t disappoint.
If you’ve read the first book, the whole team makes an appearance in this one and Talon is (clearly) the star of the show (If you noted in my previous review on Trinity, you will realize and understand that I do not comprehend fascinations with animals, but I still enjoy these books!). I will say, though, that there is a LOT that goes down in this book: family problems, different countries, shoot-em-up scenes, kidnapping, etc. Spiritually, you’ve got Dane finding his way back to God and Aspen learning how to trust Him. Great Book! Really anticipating the next one!
After reading TRINITY, the first book in the A Breed Apart series, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Book Two, TALON: COMBAT TRACKING TEAM. Let me tell you I was not disappointed. I fell in love with this MWD, he is a true hero. TALON will take you where you could never go before without being a part of the military. As I read this book, I was a heroine, a hero, a villain….a dog. I was in the trenches, racing against time to save…….read the book to finish that sentence. Once again, I was reminded of what our men and women (and those wonderful MWDs) do every day to keep us safe and free. The characters in TALON are so well written, that they seemed real to me. I found myself praying for them throughout the story. This book has it all….action, romance, heartache, laughter, and my favorite when it comes to this series, those wonderful MILITARY WAR DOGS!
Talon is an action packed drama filled with twists and turns, unexpected plots, and a little bit of romance that grabs your attention and keeps it to the final pages of the book. It’s yet another great book by Ronie Kendig. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series, Beowulf.
Kendig's characters are strong, smart and driven, and the inspirational touch lends warmth and strength to her characters, as well. The plot is captivating and intense.
If you're an animal lover, Talon will capture your heart and won't let go.
Put TALON: COMBAT TRACKING TEAM on your to-read list. You won't be disappointed.
Ronie Kendig hit another one out of the park. Ronie has once again created a series that keeps you on the edge of your seat rooting for our heroes both human and canine throughout the entire ride.
