Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig

Do you ever take a moment and think about the impact a title can have on a book and a reader? Now, there’s a reason the book I’m sharing with you today is called Storm Rising, and you’ll have to read it to find out. But let me say this – the storm wasn’t the only thing rising while I was reading this book. Here’s what else was rising: my blood pressure, my heartbeat, my temperature (swoony moments!), the amount of times I bit my nails, the amount of times I chose to read away from my husband (again those swoony moments are kind of awkward with your hubby right next to you as you’re blushing). I’ve been waiting for Leif’s story, and Ronie Did. Not. Disappoint.

Storm Rising (the Book of the Wars Book #1) cover

Mentioned in the pages of the Septuagint but lost to history, the Book of the Wars has resurfaced, and its pages hold secrets–and dangers–never before seen on earth.  

Tasked with capturing the ancient text, former Navy SEAL Leif Metcalfe is finally given command of his own team. But their best efforts are ruined when a notorious Bulgarian operative known as “Viorica” snatches the volume right out from under them. 

Iskra “Viorica” Todorova is determined to use the book to secure the thing that matters most–freedom. But a series of strange storms erupts around the globe and the coming dangers foretold in the text threaten crops, lives–entire nations.Though both are haunted by secrets of their past and neither trusts the other, Leif and Iskra must form an uneasy alliance to thwart impending disaster. However, the truth hidden in two-thousand-year-old words could unleash the storm of their own destruction.

Wow. I knew I wanted to read Leif’s story, but Kendig managed to put it on a whole other level. In the start of an exhilarating new series, my attention was captured from the start and never let up throughout the whole book. Not even for a second. Jam packed with action, readers will not be able to tear themselves away from the story. It’s intense, thrilling, scary, and yes even swoony. Leif is my favorite character from Kendig, ever. There’s just something about him, even with his missing memories, that make him so attractive. **sigh**

Let’s talk about Iskra for a moment. What a cool character. Okay yes, her circumstances are horrendous. In fact, I cannot even imagine having to go through all the stuff she has been through in her life. But even in that she was able to fight. She held her head high and kept going. And y’all, she can pack quite a punch! She doesn’t even allow you to feel pity for her – she just wants you on her side. Throughout the book you see little moments of vulnerability, and those are the times I liked best. For both her and Leif. 

Ronie Kendig has been on my radar for quite awhile now, and rightly so. How she is able to get so much energy inside of her books just boggles my mind. There are some things in this book that hint to what’s ahead for this series and I can honestly say that I cannot wait to see what’s next. I know it’s going to be more danger, more action, and more swoony moments that are sure to bring a smile to this reader’s face! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
