Raptor’s communications expert, Staff Sergeant Brian “Hawk” Bledsoe is struggling with his inner demons, leaving him on the verge of an “other than honorable” discharge. Plagued with corrupted intel, Raptor team continues to track down the terrorist playing chess with their lives. Afghan pilot Fekiria Haidary is devastated when a systems glitch on her aircraft forces a weapons launch on a safe target. And when the deadly bombing separates Brian from the team, he must make an impossible choice: save his brothers-in-arms, or save the woman and children depending on him to survive a brutal snowstorm.
Another amazing book from Ronie Kendig! As is always the case with her novels, as soon as I started reading I was sucked in and did not want to put it down!
I loved Brian “Hawk” Bledsoe! He was an amazing hero and I loved his determination to get the job done no matter the cost. He could be rash at times but it was cool to watch him work on controlling himself more. One of my favorite things about Brian was the fact that he was a man of his word, once he made a promise he kept it no matter what!
Fekiria took me a bit to warm up to but once I did I loved her too! She had a lot of anger and hate built up and it was amazing to watch the walls come down as she was exposed to God's love. I admired how strong she was, how she fought for what she believed in and to protect those she cared about.
This wasn't a typical romantic suspense since for about two-thirds of the book Fekiria pretty much hated Brian and wanted nothing to do with him. But as she saw him for who he really was instead of just seeing his uniform their relationship began to blossom and I can't wait to see how it plays out. I also really enjoyed Mitchell “Harrier” Black's side story/romance! It was really cute!
I cannot wait until the Raptor team finally tracks down these terrorists because they are really ticking me off! It's cool how Ronie also gives us a glimpse into their thoughts and what makes them tick, but I am looking forward to their defeat. After the way this book ended I am very glad that I have Falcon on hand to start immediately!
