As expected, Ronie Kendig delivers a book that is easy to read, easy to follow but very hard to put down. She writes dialogue that is humorous, honest and banter-filled. Her characters have depth and leave you rooting for them to succeed against all of the bad that she throws at them. The description of the surroundings makes you feel like you are right there with them and seeing things through their eyes. All in all, this book is everything you could ask for in a great adventure novel.
Is this a "guy's book"? This book is a true “guy’s book”. Between the military might and muscle, the continuous show of force, explosions, gun-fire, WHEW!!! There’s enough action and adventure in this book for any guy to enjoy.
