Falcon: The Quiet Professionals Book 3 by Ronie Kendig


THE DAY OF DEADLY RECKONING HAS ARRIVED FOR RAPTOR TEAM...

...and Warrant Officer Salvatore "Falcon" Russo is just the right mix of guts and grit to lead his brothers-in-arms against the Osiris hacker, Meng-Li Jin. Sal must cut through thick roots of bitterness and betrayal to take down the terrorist--but that means putting the team in the hands of Cassandra Walker. The last time he did that, two of the most important people in his life died. He will not make that mistake again.

Cassandra Walker knows three things: she has never loved any man besides Salvatore Russo, he hates her more than life itself, and her mission may destroy any chance of reconciliation.

The deeper Raptor digs for truth, the more betrayal seeps from the very fabric of their mission. Friends becomes spies and turncoats. Enemies morph into strange allies. As the tides turn and Sal rethinks his game plan, he is forced to trust Cassie again. And it might be the last time.

I don't normally pick military fiction for my reading pleasure but when Ronie is the author, that changes everything. I LOVE her books. The characters grab me right away. They become "real" to me and I have to find out where their adventures take them and what kind of danger they will face next. I consider Ronie one of my favorite authors and love ALL of her books. 

Falcon had many surprises for me. Some things I figured out ahead of time and others caught me off guard. These characters are complex and exciting. In her books she has strong characters and especially the women. This book series takes you into a time that could very well be now. The danger and action keep you reading (even way past your bedtime). It was fast-paced and non stop. I would recommend reading the first two books in the series, Raptor 6 and Hawk, before reading this one, although it can be read alone. I haven't read the first two and now I am dying to go and read them and re-read Falcon. You won't be disappointed in this book or any other by Ronie Kendig. She does not disappoint in her story telling skills. Please check out her other two series, too. I have all of her books either on my shelf or Kindle or both. They are so good I want to make sure I can read them anytime. Five stars for this book!

An Army brat, Ronie Kendig grew up in the classic military family, with her father often TDY and her mother holding down the proverbial fort. Their family moved often, which left Ronie attending six schools by the time she'd entered fourth grade. her only respite and "friends" druing this time were the characters she created. 

It was no surprise when she married a military veteran--her real-life hero--in June 1990. Married more than twenty years, Ronie and her husband, Brian, homeschool their children, the first of whom graduated in 2011. Despite the craziness of life, Ronie finds balance and peace with her faith, family and their Maltese Menace in Northern Virginia.

Ronie has a deep love and passion for people, especially hurting people, which is why she pursued and obtained a B.S. in Psychology from Liberty University. Ronie speaks nationally, volunteers with writer's organizations, including American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and My Book Therapy, and mentors other writers.

Since launching onto the publishing scene in 2010, Ronie and her books have hit bestseller lists and garnered awards and critical acclaim. You can check out that list on her website:
