Character Spotlight: Ronie Kendig’s Téya Reiker


I am really excited to introduce you to a strong and tenacious young woman who is currently on the run for her life in Ronie Kendig’s Operation Zulu Redemption. After hiding for five years, Téya Reiker’s cover has been blown. Catching up with her was no small feat, but thankfully, I managed to wrangle a little information from her before she slipped away yet again.

Before meeting Téya, here’s a bit about her story.

They never should’ve existed. Now they don’t.Zulu1-5

In the aftermath of their first highly successful op, the first all-female special ops team, known as Zulu, discovered that innocent civilians—women and children—died at their hands. Zulu was set up to take a devastating fall.

Fearing for their lives, the Zulu team vanished. With new identities and spread across the globe, they live in relative but isolated peace—yet still haunted by the past. Terrified of being discovered.

Five years after that horrific night, they begin to hope they might be safe and the tragedy forgotten.

Until two of them are murdered …

    • You’re welcome! I had lots of fun “hanging out” with Téya. She’s pretty incredible. It doesn’t surprise me that she stole the show. 🙂

    • Oh it’s really good! Waiting for next installment is torture. I can’t wait to find out what’s going to happen.

  8. Squeee! Love it, Eli 😉 I have a soft spot for Téya – love her feistiness, especially considering where she’s been for the past 5 years. Thanks for a great spotlight on her and OZ.

    • I’ve really enjoyed Téya, but after “hanging out” with her I think I love her even more. Can’t wait to find out more about her story.
