This is a new favorite novel from one of my favorite authors!
I love, loved Ms. Kendig’s Tox Files series, and this new one is just as good (or even better!).
It was great having some familiar faces show up in this story. Just like getting reacquainted with old friends.
I loved the main characters. Leif Metcalfe is quite the hero! And I quickly loved Iskra/Viorica and all her deep hurts because of all the traumatic things she’s been forced to face in her life.
I enjoyed seeing how they went from barely tolerating each other to becoming friends to…well, I don’t want to give the story away…. 😉
This mission is incredible. They are looking for a long-lost treasure, The Book of Wars mentioned in the Bible, in the book of Numbers.
I loved the danger. The intrigue. The racing-around-the-world-to-find-the-treasure aspect of this story. Intensity so thick you could slice it with a knife…
Ronie Kendig is a master at spinning a story of this nature, and this is some of her finest writing yet!!

Here is the back cover copy, in case you are interested…
Mentioned in the pages of the Septuagint but lost to history, the Book of the Wars has resurfaced, and its pages hold secrets–and dangers–never before seen on earth.
Tasked with capturing the ancient text, former Navy SEAL Leif Metcalfe is finally given command of his own team. But their best efforts are ruined when a notorious Bulgarian operative known as “Viorica” snatches the volume right out from under them.
Iskra “Viorica” Todorova is determined to use the book to secure the thing that matters most–freedom. But a series of strange storms erupts around the globe and the coming dangers foretold in the text threaten crops, lives–entire nations. Though both are haunted by secrets of the past and neither trusts the other, Leif and Iskra must form an uneasy alliance to thwart impending disaster. However, the truth hidden in two-
thousand-year-old words could unleash the storm of their own destruction.
