An Ex-Green Beret and his war dog on the greatest mission of their lives.
And probably their last...
A year ago in Afghanistan, Green Beret Heath Daniel’s career was destroyed.
Along with his faith.
Now he and his military war dog, Trinity, have a chance to redeem their skills through the A Breed Apart organization. The job works. But his passion is back in the field. The medical discharge says it can't happen due to the Truamatic brain injury that forced Heath to the sidelines.
Military intelligence officer Darci Kintz is captured while secretly tracking the Taliban. Only one dog can handle the extreme conditions to save her. Trinity. Only one man can handle Trinity. Time is running out on the greatest—and most dangerous—mission of their lives.
It is really over?? MUST it really be over??
What an awesome read!! Trinity is the kind of book where you are rushing through it, biting your nails as you read as fast as possible in order to see what on earth is going to happen next...yet you're heartily depressed when you reach the end!!
Ah well, I guess every good book must come to an end. And Trinity certainly made it easily into that category. I haven’t read many books that feature an animal as a main character, but I really loved seeing how a military war dog functioned in the field and in all the action. They certainly are amazing creatures!
As far as story plot, character development, and writing style goes in Trinity…Ronie Kendig is in her element!! The action and tension start to build from the first page and the characters seem so real and personal. Kendig’s writing uses that sharp, hard style that really makes those action scenes just pop! There is a bit of torture used on one of the main characters, but it was written very well and isn’t too disturbing for the reader…just made me wince in pain for the character!
Needless to say, I am really looking forward to the release of the next book in the A Breed Apart series, Talon! Both Talon and his owner, Aspen, were characters I wanted to get to know more. Not sure what I make of Timbrel. I have my doubts about that woman... But I'm confident that by the time she and Beowolf get the spotlight with their own book, Ronie Kendig will get me to like her just as much as I like all the other characters brought to life through her talented writing. :-)
