This is the most amazing book I have read in a long time. It has a high intensity, quick moving plot that doesn’t sacrifice depth of character. Descriptive settings cause the reader to feel like they are living the adventure alongside the characters. The characters, though unique, feel true to life and experience struggles and sins that aren’t solved in the blink of an eye.
Just when you think she’s packed everything into the plot, Ronie Kendig adds another layer. This book is worthy of 5+ stars. It has just the right balance of adventure, suspense, and romance.
Wolfsbane is the third installment in Ronie Kendig’s Discarded Hero’s series. It follow’s the story of former Green Beret Canyon Metcalfe and demolitions expert and senator’s daughter Danielle Roark.
After finally escaping the clutches of a Venezuelan general who has been keeping her as his personal sex slave, Dani Roark is plucked from the sea by Range Metcalf. She brings critical information she has gleaned to the authorities only to have them tell her that her info seems too perfect. They accuse her of working with the general and soon she faces the option of trial as a traitor and possible execution, or a return trip to the land of her captivity to prove her information correct.
Meanwhile Dani meets Canyon Metcalf, Range’s brother who immediately feels drawn to her in all the ways he doesn’t want to be. Not only does his past make it impossible to love her, but Range has claimed her as his girl.
Canyon’s team is given the assignment of going into Venezuela to protect Dani and help her get the proof she needs. Canyon promises Dani that he will protect her, and never leave her behind, but he soon realizes that he is not ultimately in control.
If you only read one book this year, this is the one I recommend. It will be released July 1, 2011.
