So I actually started this book way back in February, and was initially a little disappointed. I'd seen SO many people that I love raving about it, and at first, to be completely honest, it was a good book, but I wasn't loving it like I'd hoped to. I read about 60 pages, then had to put it down_and wasn't able to pick it up again until now due to heaps of books for review.
But then. This month. One afternoon I finally had a little down-time from review books, so I picked it up again, jumped back in_and was swept away. Wow. The action was non-stop, whipping through scenes in a very readable way. This is a war story that has alarming suspense (just what suspense should be!) and sweet romance (oh so sweet), all set in the Middle East. This book is definitely heart-pounding, and sure to keep you reading! I know, I was able to put it down at first_and you know? It may have just been my mood that day. But if the beginning feels slow to you, don't worry - it picks up and flies in no time. By the end, I liked it so much that there are two things to note. 1. I gave it a 9.5. And 2. I promptly wrote the publisher and begged for a copy of Talon to review. And you know what? They sent it to me! Now I just have to start it. :) I'm definitely looking forward to reading more by Ronie!
**I know this is a popular book for review, but I went and bought my copy. As usual, all opinions are my own and no one was making me write a positive review.**
I got this book for my husband who was a dog handler in Vietnam for 3 tours. He said it is an excellent book and he really enjoyed it. I have ordered the other books in this series but he hasn't read them as yet. Thank you for bringing a smile to his eyes.
I love some of roni's other books, but this one I found a little slow and it lacked depth. I actually forced myself to finish it because I liked her other books so much! Not the worst book ever, just was expecting something much better from this author.
