A sniper shot hits Cole Tox Russell. The enemy is one of his own; a rogue Special Forces team operator and old friend, Alec King. Tox discovers Alec commits several horrific murders that he claims is vengeance against the wrongs committed by his victims. Then he begins targeting innocent people and tries to blackmail Tox into joining him, expressing they are the same type of soldier. Tox must come to terms with what type of soldier he really is, as it is a soldier’s duty to kill with honor in the pursuit of justice, not murder for one’s own vengeance.

Series: Tox Files
Six months after stopping a deadly plague, Cole "Tox" Russell and his team are enjoying a little rest. That peace is short-lived when a sniper shot hits Tox. The enemy is discovered to be one of their own, a rogue Special Forces team operator.
Alec King is perhaps the only person as skilled as Tox, and he's out for justice. Furious with orders that got his men killed, he intends to make those responsible pay. And he insists Tox join him, believing they are the same breed of soldier.
Afraid his old friend is right, Tox battles a growing darkness within himself as he and his team engage in another deadly encounter with antiquity. It appears Alec is cheating--he's using a mysterious artifact, a crown that history has linked to some of the worst slaughters in humanity. Racing to stop Alec before his vengeance is unleashed, Tox must fight the monster without becoming one.
Santaflash5 Stars Out Of 5Unexpected Fun Read!November 12, 2017SantaflashQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I saw the cover for Crown of Souls, I was reminded of the Bourne series. This is a book (and series) my dad would enjoy, minus the romance here and there. I'm curious about book 1, a dormant, centuries-old disease is unleashed. Sounds interesting! Crown of Souls is book 2 in The Tox Files series and she's already got book 3 set to publish in July 2018. I'm already thinking Christmas gift (at least books 1 and 2) for my dad. Note: It is not like Jason Bourne, or Jack Ryan. This is a whole military unit the reader follows, though Tox is the main character.
Now, let's get down to brass tacks...
The details in this book make it believable, make Tox a believable character. And the fact that this is book 2, don't let that deter you. I haven't read the first book and, though I was a bit lost in the first few chapters, the author does a great job of bringing us up to speed. Yet, she doesn't do it to the point that the reader is skimming through parts or sections...that is, she doesn'toverdo the explanations. It's just enough of a reminder for book 1.
Initially, I thought this was merely a fictional military novel. And that's fine. But when I reached maybe the middle of the novel, it occurred to me that these books may be more than just about fighting. This was really a pleasant surprise. It's a mixture of special forces meets Indiana Jones in a way. In a nutshell (without spoiling the book), there's a madman killing the top baddest of the bad (along with innocents), long delayed echos (aka "ghost skips"), a highly sought after artifact, ancient burial sites and lots and lots of action.
For those that love action, they'll enjoy this novel. For the individuals that prefer military books, they probably would enjoy this book. For anyone that likes a good mystery/thriller, I'd count Crown of Souls as the book for them.I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review, but I'm thinking of purchasing the Tox series so my dad has a chance to read them in order.
Musicgirl665 Stars Out Of 5Another winnerNovember 2, 2017Musicgirl66Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Another winner by Ronie Kendig. Kendig doesn't disappoint the reader of this book. She has a wonderful way with words and tells a good story.
A sniper is on the loose targeting military personnel (or ex-military personnel) The reader is kept on the edge of his/her seat throughout most of the book. I loved it.
JoyONew HampshireAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A.Maz.Ing.October 17, 2017JoyONew HampshireAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wow! Ronie Kendig has done it again, forever claiming a spot as one of my go-to military, thriller, suspense authors!
Imagine if a military suspense, The Lord of the Rings, and National Treasure where all thrown into a literary blender, and then this concoction is sprinkled with a sweet romance. Clearly, I am no chef, but I think you get the point that this book is amazing!
Re-dive into the world of Cole "Tox" Russell, Haven (Kasey), Ram, and Tzivia. A world where history and the supernatural collide with our modern-day issues and unbelief. The story mostly flows from Tox and Haven's perspectives, but Ram (I love Ram!), Tzivia, and a mysterious, important man from the past make appearances that left me wanting more. This journey is rife with action, soul-searching, and...victory?
Sorry. I can't say more. Spoilers. And I relish in your frustration a little. Hehe. ;-)
The story is peppered with the spiritual premise that if you stare into the darkness, then it stares into you. Through Tox's struggles and secrets and Haven's steadfastness, reader's are reminded that no matter what they've done, God's love and forgiveness covers all.
Five Stars ~ A.Maz.Ing. Crown of Souls is the second book in The Tox Files. I would definitely recommend reading book one, Conspiracy of Silence, before diving into Crown of Souls. They make great binge reads! I'm looking forward to the next book, Thirst of Steel, to a mildly alarming, obsessive, great degree! Thirst of Steel releases on July 31st, 2018.
I received a copy of Crown of Souls by Ronie Kendig from Bethany House Publishers, a division of Baker Publishing Group. All opinions expressed are my own.
LadySnowAngelAge: 18-24Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Best yetOctober 16, 2017LadySnowAngelAge: 18-24Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Some people can wait patiently for a sequel, not me. I have been waiting to get my hands on Crown of Souls since I read the last page of Conspiracy of Silence.
It's been six months since the events of Conspiracy of Silence, Cole "Tox" Russell and Haven Cortes are enjoying the Fourth of July with the team and their families when a shot throws them into danger and the middle of another multi-continent mystery. Tox, Haven, and the team race to stop the latest disaster facing the world. Tox has another major problem besides being the one who got shot; Alec King is or was Tox's friend and fellow soldier. If Alec has gone too far to be saved, is Tox also beyond saving? As fear stalks Tox and threatens to tear everyone and everything he loves from him, there's only one place for him to turn, but how long will fear hold him back and keep him from being who and whose he is meant to be?
I love that Cole "Tox" Russell and Haven Kasey Cortes are the main characters in all three books of The Tox Files. Some characters just deserve a whole trilogy of books; Cole and Haven are definitely in that category.
Crown of Souls is exactly what you expect of a book with Ronie Kendig's name on the cover to be: lots of explosive action, suspense, spectacular romance, and a whole team of exceptional characters.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
Jane5 Stars Out Of 5A grip-the-edge-of-your-seat seriesOctober 11, 2017JaneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I just finished reading Crown of Souls. It's the second book of the Tox Files series by Ronie Kendig, and I can hardly wait for the third one to come my way! This book is an action-packed mix of Indiana Jones, Seal Team 6, and the Knights Templar. If you enjoy history, the idea that artifacts could have some strange effects on people, and military action you will want to pick this book up. That being said, you will definitely want to read the first in the series, Conspiracy of Silence, and the prequel, Warrior's Seal first.
Crown of Souls picks up where the first book left off, with a new artifact to recover, evil to stop, and a growing relationship between the two main characters: Cole "Tox" Russel and Haven. One of the things I really like about this series is that while there is a definite romantic element, it is not primarily a love story. The race against evil is what drives this tale.
Evil comes in the form of a crown that corrupts the wearer until his moral judgement is rotted away. Unfortunately for Tox, the wearer happens to be a fellow soldier who wants nothing more than to take Tox down the road of destruction with him. So, while Tox is fighting an outer battle, he is also fighting an inner battle, trying to reconcile the unspeakable things he has done as a soldier with who he is as a man whose desire is to be honorable and useful to God.
As he struggles, his team has his back and more of their secrets are revealed. Other characters from the previous book play an important role, mainly Ti Tzaddik who is more than he seems to be. There is also a reunion between Tox and a very special lady.
I found Crown of Souls to be a thoroughly enjoyable read. I happily await book three, and in the meantime I recommend this series to those who are seeking an exciting bit of fiction.
