If you follow my blog regularly, then you probably know that I have read many Christian romances. I do love the genre, but reading the same old plots can get a bit boring, so I was more than eager to review Raptor 6 by Ronie Kendig. I don't read very many military thrillers, but I have read a few other titles by the author, so I thought I would give the book a try.
The Quite Professionals is a new spinoff series of A Breed Apart trilogy, featuring Captain Dean Watters as the central character and hero of Raptor 6, who finds himself leading a Special Forces Team that is assigned to track down hackers, whom are responsible for stealing ten military super-secure computers. On these computers is intelligence information about the U.S. military and this information falling into the wrong hands will lead to total chaos across the globe.
When Zahrah Zarrick, a missionary teacher with a background in quantum cryptology, goes missing in Afghanistan, it is up to Captain Dean Watters and his team to track down the hackers and save Zahrah and the entire world.
Raptor 6 is a fast-paced, intense military thriller with a Christian theme to it, as well as a little romance. Ronie Kendig is a talented writer and she avoids all the typical character cliches; giving each character natural flaws, making them more believable. For me, the more realistic a character is, the more chance that I'm going to connect with them and whatever situation they are in. Overall, Raptor 6 is a well-crafted page-turner that I highly enjoyed reading and I'm looking forward to reading the upcoming second installment, Hawk.
