About the book
Special Forces operator Salvatore “Falcon” Russo vowed to never again speak to or trust Lieutenant Cassandra Walker after a tragedy four years ago. But as Raptor closes in on the cyber terrorists responsible for killing two of their own, Sal must put his life—and the lives of his teammates—in her hands. Despite his anger, Cassie is ill-prepared for his resistance and the fallout when she must protect the one asset who can end the attacks. As allies become enemies and hostiles become unlikely partners, Raptor fights for its very existence.
Ronie Kendig has done a superb job of writing about the military and the perils of today’s warfare. She has also done an outstanding job of creating characters, both those you love and those you don’t love.
Unknown to “Falcon,” real name Salvatore Russo, his sworn enemy, Lt. “Cassie” Walker is now at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan. If discovering she was there wasn’t bad enough, he learns the Raptor team must depend on her for their new mission.
Cassie had requested to be sent to Kandahar in the hopes of restoring her friendship with Falcon. She quickly realizes, however, that his anger runs deeper than she realized. Knowing she is the key to Raptor’s success and needing to win back Falcon’s trust, she tries to engage him in her life, but Falcon’s having none of it.
The novel is a quick paced, edge of your seat story. The action is believable and heart-wrenching at times. As a former military wife, I feel Ms. Kendig does an amazing job of showing the physical and emotional aspects of the military, in addition to the spiritual side of those who trust and lean on God.
Falcon can be read as a stand-alone, as I did, however, I came to care about the characters so much, I want to read the other two books (Raptor 6 and Hawk) in order to learn more about each person.
There are some parts of Falcon that are violent and graphic. For that reason, some readers may have a hard time with the subject matter.
