Canyon “Midas” Metcalfe has made many mistakes. The scars on his wrist are proof to his pain, desperation — and failure. He couldn’t even take his own life without messing it up. But that was two years ago. Now he’s part of Nightshade, a covert group of men who are in the business of restoring life and peace to the broken parts of the world — if only it would work for him too.
For the past six months, Danielle Roark has lived every woman’s biggest nightmare. Taken captive by a Venezuelan war lord, she’s been raped, tortured, and broken. Managing to escape only leads her into another living hell. Her government, the people meant to protect her, accuses her of fabricating the story and committing treason — a crime punishable with death. Returning is her only option. But how can Dani survive the jungle that nearly killed her? And what does she hope to find when some of the best secret ops have returned empty handed?
Canyon and Dani’s lives intersect at her court hearing. Their connection is instantaneous. Now it is up to Nightshade to escort her safely back to Venezuela and secure the evidence needed to prove her innocence. But can Canyon keep his focus with a beautiful, tragic woman threatening to steal his heart? He can’t afford not to, because this is one mission some will stop at nothing to make sure fails.
Ronie Kendig is brilliant in the third installment of her Discarded Heroes series, Wolfsbane. Heart-pounding suspense and adrenaline-pumping action keeps the reader pinned to the edge of the chair. Kendig carries her audience through the dangers and perils of the Venezuelan jungle as Nightshade fights to save Dani.
I greatly admire her for tackling the sticky issue of sex outside of marriage. While many Christian authors dance around the issue, Kendig doesn’t shrink away from the challenge, and shines. She addresses it in a clear and love-filled way.
Her fans will not be disappointed, and for those who haven’t read her novels, Kendig gives them one more reason to start. Once more, loveable characters tugged at my heartstrings as I rooted for them to succeed. The ending shocked me senseless as Kendig delivered her best cliffhanger yet. Wolfsbane is one book you will not want to miss!
