THIRST OF STEEL by Ronie Kendig, Review by Kim

I am at a loss as to how to write this review. How to get across how incredibly wonderful this story, no, this entire series is ~ with no spoilers. The twists and turns will keep you reading as fast as you can while holding your breath and hoping for no interruptions. You also might find yourself telling everyone in your house ~yes, everyone ~ what is happening.
So, here is what I can say. I loved reconnecting with all the old characters. The camaraderie between the guys is great and I love the fierce loyalty they have to each other. I love the pops of humor throughout. There is also a wonderful new character ~ Mercy. I love her! She is funny, super smart, and the names she gives people are hilarious! And, of course, there’s TOX. Pretty much the best male character ever! I also have to say I totally cried - a lot. And I shamelessly bugged my reader friends to find someone who has read this story because I needed to talk about it! Thank you Ronie for the spoilers page!

Ronie is a master!! She beautifully weaves the ancient story with the current story. Agh! I wish I could spoiler because this book is just so awesome and beautifully ties everything together. I hate that this series is over. This entire series is in a class by itself as is Ronie Kendig!

Update: I wrote this review the day I finished this book ~ 11 days ago! And I cannot get this story or the characters off of my mind! Ronie Kendig is a master at storytelling! This series should be made into a movie! It’s just that good.

*I received a copy of this novel from the publisher. All opinions are my own. 

Dismantled centuries ago, the sword of Goliath is still rumored to thirst for its enemies' blood. Cole "Tox" Russell only wants to begin his life with Haven Cortes, but he must first complete a final mission: retrieve that sword and destroy the deadly Arrow & Flame Order.

The AFO, however, is determined to claim the sword. Wielding their father's life over Tzivia and Ram Khalon, they threaten to expose Ram's long-held and dangerous secret while demanding Tzivia locate the sword. With the Wraith team slowly being torn apart, things only worsen when Mercy Maddox, a new operative, emerges with the stunning news that the sword is tied to both Ram's secret and a string of unsolved serial murders.

Tox, Ram, and the others are forced to set aside fear and anger to focus only on the enemy. No matter the cost, Wraith must stop or take the enemy down with them.
