5 stars~*****

Having read Digitalis, Wolfsbane and Firethorn in one month, I became very attached to the Nightshade team. I loved all the books in this series. Ronie Kendig's writing is full action. You can hardly find the right time to stop to go to bed. So be warned not to start reading any of her books shortly before bed time, or you will lose sleep!

Spoiler alert!!
The shack was attacked, the Nightshade team was captured and separated. Kazi is hired by Lambert to get the team members back from all corners of the world. First she frees Griffin from the prison and together they are trying to retrieve the other men. They face many dangers. Griffin is surprised in Kazi
this small lady is capable of great things.

Griffin "Legend" Riddell is a big guy with secrets he didn't tell his team members. Kazi wants to keep her past and identity to herself, because she doesn't trust anyone. Both Griffin and Kazi are hurting, because of the things they keep hidden. When they get to work together they must learn to trust each other.

Unlike the other books in this series we also read a lot about the other team members. T
hat's why I recommend to read the other books in this series first. It's great to see all the men back with their families. A perfect ending to this awesome series!

  1. Another great review from the pen, er, computer of MARIAN BAAY! I have seen this book (actually this whole series) all over the place, and have heard nothing but great things about it! Wonder how RONIE knows so much about the military? This would be the hardest genre to write about, I would think!

  2. Thank you, miss FLOWERS! RONIE is an army brat and married a veteran. I couldn't write this genre either, but I'm glad she does - and she's very good at it!

  3. Thank you for a chance to win one of Ronie's books. I love her work and learn a lot about the craft from her work. Thanks again, God bless you.
