Raptor’s communications expert, Staff Sergeant Brian “Hawk” Bledsoe is struggling with his inner demons, leaving him on the verge of an “other than honorable” discharge. Plagued with corrupted intel, Raptor team continues to track down the terrorist playing chess with their lives. Afghan pilot Fekiria Haidary is devastated when a systems glitch on her aircraft forces a weapons launch on a safe target. And when the deadly bombing separates Brian from the team, he must make an impossible choice: save his brothers-in-arms, or save the woman and children depending on him to survive a brutal snowstorm.



Ronie Kendig is an award-winning, bestselling author who grew up an Army brat. After twenty-plus years of marriage, she and her hunky hero husband have a full life with their four children, a Maltese Menace, and a retired military working dog in Northern Virginia. As an author and speaker, Ronie loves engaging readers through her Rapid-Fire Fiction. Ronie can be found at, on Facebook (, Twitter (@roniekendig), and Goodreads (


Hooah! Ronie Kendig's second installment in her Quiet Professional series is coming soon! And just like its predecessor, Raptor 6 (which I reviewed here), this one will knock you off your feet and into your chair for the duration! In her inimitable Rapid-Fire style, Kendig packs each page with action and adrenaline. At times, it's hard to tell if Hawk is in more danger from whizzing bullets and RPG's (rocket powered grenades) or from himself...or the echoes of the past which haunt him. Not to mention the whole friend-or-foe conundrum that plagues him, Fekiria, and just about every other person in this riveting book. Kendig's expert character development and depiction of setting give a raw authenticity to this tale that transports the reader into its pages as Hawk and Fekiria battle the enemy, each other, and the elements. (Suffering vicariously through the snowstorm was a challenge as I read in the Texas summer heat; good luck staying warm when this book releases in November! LOL) In addition to being a gripping read, Hawk gives you a brand-new appreciation for the courage, strength, and stamina of our military heroes who risk their lives on a daily basis for us. I highly, highly recommend this book and series and can't wait for Falcon to be released in the spring!
