Dead Reckoning Review and Tour
Dead Reckoning is Ronie Kendig's debut novel and an absolute page-turner. I'm already hearing rumors that her second novel is even better which I frankly find hard to believe. This book rockets to a quick start from the first chapter and is a race that travels through exotic locales in a race to stop a nuclear disaster. The characters are multi-dimensional, and I especially loved Shiloh, a young woman who is thrown into a crazy situation but uses skills drilled into her as a child to try to survive. It doesn't hurt that an operative is assigned to her who is easy to love and hate. The writing is great! The author uses words to advantage to pull us deep into the action. If you like books with a global sweep and lots of suspense with blushes of romance, then you will enjoy this book. Here's more about the book...
When Shiloh Blake’s first large-scale underwater archeological dig traps her in the middle of an international nuclear arms clash, she is forced to flee for her life into the streets of Mumbai, India. Is the man trailing her an enemy, or is he sent by her CIA father to protect her? Whoever he is, the only way to end this nightmare and prevent a nuclear meltdown is to join forces with former Navy SEAL Reece Jaxon.
Ronie Kendig has a BS in Psychology and is a wife, mother of four, and avid writer. Her novels include Dead Reckoning (March 2010, Abingdon Press) and Nightshade (July 2010, Barbour Publishing), Book#1 in The Discarded Heroes series.
