I was so excited when Ronie announced a new series coming out and y’all, I have to say this is the best yet! While the story has her classic fast paced intrigue, there was just something a little more to this series and I’m already looking forward to the next one!
Four years after a tragic mission decimated his career and his team, Cole “Tox” Russell is persona non grata to the United States. And that’s fine–he just wants to be left alone. But when a dormant, centuries-old disease is unleashed, Tox is lured back into action.
Partnered with FBI agent Kasey Cortes, Tox has to pull together a team to begin a globe-spanning search for answers–and a cure. As their quest leads them from continent to continent, it slowly becomes clear they’re not just fighting a plague–but battling against an ancient secret society whose true goals remain hidden.
With time running out and opposition growing on every side, the key to everything may rest in an antique codex, the Crown of Jerusalem–but will Tox and his team be able to trust each other enough to break this century-spanning conspiracy of silence?
First there’s the very real characters. This isn’t one of those books where you really only like the main character – so many of the secondary characters grab you too. Both Tox and Kasey are not only on a mission, but personal journeys as well – and I love reading/seeing that!
On top of that, the story itself is fantastic – the twists, the action, the race against time….that all adds up for a page turner! I know I’ve talked plenty of times about Ronie’s books, but if you haven’t read one yet, I definitely vote you start with this one! (Oh and the prequel is free!)
