Raptor 6 book review and Kindle HDX GIVEAWAY

Raptor 6 is a bit of a departure from my usual book reviews.  This is a little bit of a "guy book" in that it's full of action and combat, but it's a girl book, too, with a boy/girl scenario that keeps you guessing.

When the book first arrived, Eli, age 12, picked it up and walked off with it.  The cover was enough to interest him.  However, he brought it back to me a few days later, saying it was confusing, and he couldn't follow it, so he didn't finish it.

"That's fine," I thought to myself.  Several days later, Samuel needed something to do during quiet time, so I said, "I have just the thing!" and gave him the book to read.  He, too, later told me he couldn't finish it.

So it was with a little trepidation that I picked the book up to read myself.  I needn't have worried.  It drew me in, and I read more than the "Just read the first chapter tonight," I'd talked myself into.

If you've read W.E.B. Griffin or Tom Clancy, this book is the same genre.  The action *does* jump around a bit, like those books, but an adult reader can still follow what's going on.

Author Ronie Kendig does a great job, creating guys who are not only soldiers, but 3 dimensional characters, as well, with feelings and demons and relationships and personalities.  I'm happy to share that this is Book 1 of the series The Quiet Professionals, which means hopefully we'll be seeing many of these characters again soon.

Don't miss the first book, Raptor 6, in Ronie Kendig's new Quiet Professionals series. Ronie combines a dangerous romance and explosive action for a thrilling and satisfying ride. "Lock and load for this Spec Op, fighting under God’s 'rules of engagement.'" —Bob Hamer, veteran FBI undercover agent and award-winning author
