TALON by Ronie Kendig

Aspen Courtland wants to find out what really happened to her twin brother, Austin.  The only thing she has left of him is his traumatized combat tracking dog, Talon.  Although Aspen is Talon’s new handler, he would still remember Austin’s scent and may be able to find him if he is alive.   Enter Dane Markoski.  He also wants to find Austin and is asked to work with Aspen.  The connection is immediate but Dane wants nothing to with it.  Aspen has no idea who he really is but he knows that when she finds out she’ll run the other way.  Aspen knows there is more to Dane than meets the eye but she can’t deny how he makes her feel.  Danger lurks at every turn on this mission.  Success or failure depends a lot on Talon.  Will he find the courage to use his tracking ability one more time in a hostile area?

Get ready for an action packed, roller coaster ride!  Talon, the second book in the A Breed Apart Series offers up the rapid fire fiction this author’s famous for.  Having read Trinity I was looking forward to Talon and I have to say that though I really liked both stories, Talon is my favorite so far.  I loved getting to know Aspen and Dane.  Aspen has lots of grit yet also has a tender heart.  She’s just someone you want to get to know.  Dane is a complex tortured hero who definitely stole my heart.  The romantic tension was great!  I liked the reminder that in Christ we are a new creation.  That doesn’t mean we don’t struggle with our past but we have a God who allows us a new beginning.  I loved seeing the team together again.  I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the banter between Timbrel and Candyman and can’t wait to see what happens with them in Beowulf.  Hoorah!!!  Talon comes highly recommended by this reader or any of Ronie Kendig’s books for that matter!!
