NIGHTSHADE by Ronie Kendig, Review by Kim

Ronie Kendig is incredible! She is consistently amazing! And she created Tox! Best. Hero. Ever.  

A couple of warnings for Nightshade. Do not start reading it 25 minutes before you have to start getting ready for church. You will talk yourself into the belief that you really don’t need all that time to get ready when you really do. Don’t read before bed unless you don’t mind hardly any sleep or struggling to put your contacts in the next morning. Finally, don’t start when waiting in the car for your daughter who will be out in 2 minutes. You might ask her to read to you on the drive to school! 

I loved Nightshade! The action starts at the beginning and just keeps going. I really liked the whole concept of a team of discarded heroes working covertly together. I loved ‘meeting’ the other team members and can’t wait to read the other stories in the series. 

I also really liked both Max and Sydney, even though there was a time or two or three (I’m talking to you Sydney!) I wanted to pull them aside and have a quick chat with them. The growth in Max throughout the book was great to read and believable. I also loved the ending especially the last line! I can’t wait to start book two! Just awesome! 

Back Cover Blurb:
They've championed freedom, survived the cruelties of war, and now these same heroes return home. . .wounded and discarded. Former Navy SEAL Max Jacobs is fighting a new war a war for his family. Suffering from PTSD, Max is unable to control his anger and alienates himself from his wife, who files a protective order against him. Their lives are about to collide when Sydney Jacobs hunts down the source of a human interest story at her local newspaper. Will she uncover Nightshade, the elite team Max is covertly working with, and bring danger both to Max and herself?

Available in paperback and hardcover:

  1. Oh, Kim! I had to laugh at your comment. This is like me putting something on the stove and then..checking facebook... until I smell 'carmelized' food! This series will always be sort of a 'poster child' for this genre. Now I see many more authors writing this kind of high action contemporary drama and wonder how they get so much knowledge about the behind the scenes stuff!

    thanks for reviewing!

  2. Ronie is the best at hooking me and not letting go!

    1. She's certainly shown a lot of us how to do it!
