Publisher Description

"Kendig has out done herself."--RT Book Reviews on Conspiracy of Silence

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.

Suspense, action,!!!

"It took one ten thousandth of a second—exactly 0.000169 seconds—for the bullet to rip through his shoulder." Cole "Tox" Russell is in a sniper's fire right from the start...

This series starts with a bang (literally) and keeps you on a roller coaster ride of action and suspense through the past and present. If you love Jason Bourne and Indiana Jones, well this series is for you! Military action and suspense meets an archaeological mystery in the search for the "Crown of Souls." Danger at every turn, a romance with a man fighting his own war, and a team you just want as your big brothers...this book is so good! I had to stop and just breathe at times to take it all in! Tox and still my heart!

This series really should be read in order for the full effect of Tox and Wraith team missions in The Tox Files....

Prequel: The Warriors Seal
Book One: Conspiracy of Silence
Book Two: Crown of Souls
Book Three: Thirst of Steel. (Not yet released)

The ending is stunning and yet had me hoping the next book would be out like tomorrow! I was given an ARC copy for my honest opinion and I honestly love and recommend this novel. Kendig brings a powerhouse of history, modern day mystery, thriller, romance, intrigue, adventure, and action in this book. She has so much woven in this series, it will leave you wanting more!

Action-packed from page one!! This novel picks up with Tox and his team a few months after the events in Conspiracy of Silence. Their time to rest comes quickly to an end when Tox is shot by a sniper. What is discovered is that shot was a message to Tox from Alec King, another Special Forces operator, that has gone rogue. This operator is on a mission of vengeance and Tox and team are tasked with tracking him down and stopping him!

As readers have come to expect in a Ronie Kendig novel, what begins is an adventure full of military action, Biblical history, mysterious artifacts, just the right amount of romance, and more. It is apparent that Ms. Kendig has done extensive research for this series. As a wife of a retired Marine, I appreciate how well she portrays Tox's internal struggles as well. In Crown of Souls, readers get a glimpse into the battles Tox fights in his mind because of the missions he has been involved in the past and the guilt that he feels from the things he has been asked to do. Tox is going after what others are calling a madman, but Tox sees a lot of Alec King in himself.

Although you could read this as a standalone novel, I would recommend reading Conspiracy of Silence first if you haven't already since this novel picks up where that one left off.

I was given a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
