Alright, it's time to say it: Hooah! Or perhaps "Oorah!"
Either way, I think it means we support Ronie's stories.
Raptor 6 is the first Ronie Kendig book I've really read, and the first one I've owned a print copy of. I found myself really focused on the plot, digging deeper into the story, and flipping pages back to savor dialogue and re-enter an intense scene.
Imagine if someone was accessing the U.S military's secure computer system, about to compromise every operation, every code, every base.
(Hint: we get to hear the hacker's very thoughts, first person!)
Remember Captain Dean Watters? He was called "Watterboy" in Ronie's MWD series. He's back. And he's right on the edge of discovering this computer hacking situation and breaking it wide open. Dean is known for one thing: loyalty to his people. If you're his, he's got your back and he won't let you get lost.
He's also about to discover Zahrah... the daughter of a General, half-American, half Afghan. She's a passionate Christian and a teacher, and her path keeps on crossing his.
So he's a man with angel wings and a dagger tattooed on his back, she's a woman with a will of steel, and both of them are in a war zone.
So... prepare yourself for adrenaline charged Special Ops missions, a look into the heart of a dedicated woman who accepted her calling to Afghanistan and never looked back, and a tender subplot unfolding back Stateside.
I don't know where Ronie got that second storyline, but it's a good one.
Great on several levels... as adventure, as suspense, as international intrigue.
