Thanks for stopping by to check out my Review of Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig. It's the first book in The Tox Files, Ms. Kendig's brand new series. But, before I share my review, let me share a very important detail: purchase links! It officially releases December 6th, so hurry on over to Amazon, B&N, or CBD to get your copy.
Also, you can get The Warrior's Seal, the prequel to The Tox Files, for FREE at Amazon, B&N, and CBD.
Now on to the review!!
First you need to know, Conspiracy of Silence, the 1st book in The Tox Files, is like Da Vinci Code meets Elisha's Bones meets her Discarded Heroes series. It is that AMAZING! I had to read every single word, afraid I would miss something pivotal.
The history, fight scenes, romantic tension, all made for a page turning read. Seriously!! It was like normal Ronie Kendig writing after drinking an energy drink. Which probably explains my half-manic, almost incoherent review. I'm just trying to convey the awesomeness that lies within this book.
Let me slow it down a bit. *breathe, Toni* Okay, Cole "Tox" Russell, who we met in The Warrior's Seal (0.5 in Tox Files), is back from the dead...or at least that's what everyone else believes. He's been called back because he's the only one able to carry out the government's mission. Of course, he calls in his team, Cell, Chiji, Ram, and Haven "Kasey" Cortes.
I absolutely LOVE his team. Chiji holds a special place in my heart. Wise and can wield kali sticks like you wouldn't believe. I can't wait to see him in the rest of the series.
And Ram!! Oh, the intrigue. His background is so shrouded in mystery I devoured every clue and hint about him. I definitely want him on my team.
And Cell...sarcasm at its finest! I loved him for his dry humor alone.
Then add in Haven who has a history with Cole...well folks, I was done for. Ms. Kendig knocked my socks off with her history, mystery, their romance, and running-for-your-life tension. I cannot wait to read book 2, Crown of Souls. Never have I been so sad to close a book.
*I give this 5 out of 5 stars!!!
**I received a free copy from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.
