Ronie Kendig has knocked another one out of the ball park. I don't know how she does it but each book is better than the one before. Take an ex-green beret and add a mystery woman, a war dog that will willingly die for her owner and bombs, caves, avalanche, spies and you have have a 5 Star book. The pace is fast, catches your attention on the first page and doesn't let go. I loved her "Discarded Heroes" series but this new series is even better. Can't wait for the next one.
Staff Sergeant Heath "Ghost" Daniels Ã¢â¬Ë closest partner is Trinity, his Special Forces-trained military war dog, until Trinity attempts to prevent his actions. Misunderstanding Trinity's actions, Daniels and Trinity go stateside after injuries in a bomb explosion. When Daniels gets the chance to return to the battlefields, even though it is only as a moral booster, he and Trinity go. Then circumstances, force them back into action.
Great story, I enjoyed every minute. I admit I am a dog lover and I admire all of our military professionals, but the story captured my imagination and I found myself praying for the safety of the characters, a sure sign of my enjoyment. The characters and the story completely pulled me in. I could not put it down, part love story, part military story, and all dog. Highly enjoyable, I can not wait for the next one in the series. I recommend it for those who look for more in a story line than romance.
This is a very entertaining book and each page will have you wanting to read more. The main character, Heath, was injured while at war. He is able to get back to work in an organization called A Breed Apart. This organization uses both himself and his dog Trinity to help out where the military needs them. This is not your typical romance book but there is some romance in it. I thought the relationship of the main characters was believable.
I gave this book 5/5 stars. I liked how there was action, romance and intrigue. This book flowed well and was well written. The main characters of Heath, Darci and of course Trinity the dog, are all enjoyable and easy to fall in love with. The story itself is filled with action and is fun to read. This book has a great story to escape into. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction and action books.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
When I first heard about this book, I was intrigued, because I love dogs. I'd never read a book about the military, but I was willing to give it a chance. And boy oh boy am I glad I did! Thanks to Ronie, I now know what MWDs and their handlers do, how they risk their lives to save others. As I read TRINITY, my heart went out to those soldiers and that wonderful dog. This book opened up my eyes to what is truly going on outside of my safe little town. As I was reading this book, I found myself totally immersed in each scene. At times, I felt the bitter cold that surrounded Heath and Trinity so much, that I had to remind myself that I was in a nice, warm and safe place.....I can guarantee that you will have a hard time putting this book down once you start reading it. You will find yourself laughing, crying, hoping, praying and cheering. Again, I say...Wow.
(My thanks to Ronie Kendig for giving me a copy of this wonderful book.)
Ronie Kendig books rope me in and hold me hostage. Under the light of the interrogation lamps, I get quite an education on special ops and the flaws of the human condition. But don't think it's an unpleasant experience.
Teams of soldiers, honorable, chivalrous, and quirky, (yet still deeply flawed) come to my rescue every time. (I love that).
And there's this: Every time I finish one of her books, I've seen the hand of God at work.
Trinity: Military War Dog, the first novel in Ronie's A Breed Apart series offers even more. Because at the heart of the intrigue and espionage is the story of a hurting former Green Beret and his loyal MWD (Military Working Dog).
I'll tell you, Trinity, with her rippling black and ginger coat and inquisitive amber eyes, is the heart and soul of the story. She's fiercely loyal, aggressively protective, and doggishly intuitive. There's no point in hiding it.
I fell for her. I love her. And--she made me love my dog even more. (Although mine is nowhere near as amazing.)
The rest of the story commandeered my time and pulled me along on a search for redemption. I followed Heath "Ghost" Daniels deep into the icy wilderness of the Hindu Kush along the Chinese/Afghani border. Let me tell you, it was a bumpy, dangerous, heart-stopping trek.
