Raptor 6 is the first book in Ronie Kendig's newest series The Quiet Professionals and it is a great book. I have connected online with Ronie Kendig, entered contests, and won a name contest but hadn't had the honor of reading any of her books, even though quite a few are in my TBR pile. Captain Dean Watters is part of a team of highly trained men who are tasked with finding out who is hacking into their national security secrets, with his first priority being keeping himself and his team alive and safe. As the team works on this situation, they are tasked with also keeping Zahrah Zarrick alive. Zahrah is a missionary teacher from America, whose father was a General and still has a lot of clout. As Capt. Watters and Zahrah get to know each other the attraction and the danger get stronger.
Raptor 6 is the first book in The Quiet Professionals series by Ronie Kendig and it is fantastic. So little back story to my personal part of this book. I have had the joy of joining Ronie Kendig on Facebook and she had a contest asking people for their names and she would pick one to be a character in her next book so I submitted my name: Beth Louise Homewood-Milinski. I found out later that she chose my name, she wasn't sure which name she was going to use but she had chosen mine, OH MY GOODNESS a dream come true for this bookworm! So I wasn't sure which name or what book but I was excited. So as I am reading this book I come upon a character, Specialist Homewood! YAY!! So awesome to see my name (maiden name) in print, never thought that would happen! So enough about me and on to the review you are looking for! Ronie Kendig writes with authority on the United States and Other Countries military, Afganistan and other countries, missionaries, and many things associated with war. I have not read many books that are in a military setting, but this book definitely has opened up a new genre of books for me! I loved the authenticity of this book and learning so much about our military and other countries that I don't know much about. I did a lot of flipping between my page and the page with the military acronyms! Loved it! The characters in this book are fantastic! The characters are real people who have less than perfect lives and work hard to help each other. So besides Specialist Homewood (ha ha) my favorite character would have to be Zahrah. She is living in two worlds trying to make the world in Afghanistan a better place for the children of that country. Ronie Kendig really gives an honest look at our world and I really felt like I was there watching the events unfold. I found myself laughing in parts especially the Raptor teams interactions and crying in other parts as the reality of life unfolded. I cannot wait to read the other books in this series. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction with a military setting, you will not be disappointed! I give this book 4.5 STARS.
