Character Spotlight + Giveaway: Ronie Kendig’s Ram Khalon

About the Story:

Dismantled centuries ago, the sword of Goliath is still rumored to thirst for its enemies’ blood. Cole “Tox” Russell only wants to begin his life with Haven Cortes, but he must first complete a final mission: retrieve that sword and destroy the deadly Arrow & Flame Order.

The AFO, however, is determined to claim the sword. Wielding their father’s life over Tzivia and Ram Khalon, they threaten to expose Ram’s long-held and dangerous secret while demanding Tzivia locate the sword. With the Wraith team slowly being torn apart, things only worsen when Mercy Maddox, a new operative, emerges with the stunning news that the sword is tied to both Ram’s secret and a string of unsolved serial murders.

Tox, Ram, and the others are forced to set aside fear and anger to focus only on the enemy. No matter the cost, Wraith must stop or take the enemy down with them.

Meet Ram Khalon

Physical description: Ram has brown hair that is curly and shoulder-length, one of the reasons he’s often found wearing a beanie.

Age: Ram is 32

Nationality:  Israeli

Job: Ram is basically the “team daddy” for the Wraith team; he’s also Tox’s best friend.

Strength (skill/job related): A strategist and team player.

Strength (life in general): Slow to anger.

Weakness (life in general): He can be unbending on things he believes and hard to convince otherwise.

Ties/affiliations: A former Special Forces member, current Wraith team member, and hazy connections to Mossad.

Biggest struggle: Forgiving those who have wronged him.

Family history: Father vanished when he was a boy; he went to live in the States; sister is an archaeologist expert.

Other: Ram is so careful and deliberate in choosing his friends and/or girlfriends that his ties to them are not easily broken. But when they are, it’s very hard for him to forgive and move on.


Only my love for Ronie Kendig tops my dislike of crowds and video-making. I recently made my way to a place in Jerusalem that makes an appearance in book 2 of The Tox Files — Crown of Souls. Watch the video and answer the important question for a chance to win an incredible prize (the entire Tox Files series for a US winner or $20 Amazon Gift Card for an international winner).

If you haven’t read Crown of Souls, don’t worry, just guess, then go remedy that. 😉

Giveaway ends Friday, August 3 at 11:59pm.

  1. Coffee?

    It’s not the sort of thing I’d notice let alone remember–all lattes, cappuccinos, espressos, etc are one to me, for I am not a coffee drinker. But I’m really looking forward to reading the new book! I’ve heard great things!

  2. Eli, I had the pleasure of visiting Israel in May. It was an incredible experience.

    I’m guessing they ordered a Hot Chocolate with extra whip cream. 😉

  3. An iced cappuccino with chocolate! Ahhhh, Tox and Haven. Be still my heart❤️ I loved seeing the video and it drew me right back to that scene. Now I want to read the series all over again 😊 thank you for sharing ❤️

    • You’re welcome! Thank you for your kind words. While this was my first video, it wasn’t my first time going to that Aroma. As you can imagine my jaw dropped when I read that scene. I could visualize it perfectly and had even ordered the exact same drink (that shall remain unnamed by me for now), not knowing what I would later find in Crown of Souls.

  4. Since I’m not a coffee/specialty drinker I wouldn’t know what it was even if I read it. I’d be too interested in Tox and Haven’s interaction 🙂 Thanks for sharing the video. See a location “live” always makes the reading experience more real.

    • You can always go with tea, lemonade, even water! Just get your name in there so you have shot at winning the entire trilogy! 🙂

  5. It’s been too long since I read the book to have any memory of that…I’ll just have to say an iced espresso, I can’t see Tox ordering a cappuccino! lol

  6. This series is on my wish list, so unfortunately, I won’t be able to answer with confidence what they ordered, but I’m going to guess an iced mocha caramel latte. Who can go wrong with chocolate and caramel, right?! 🙂 Thank you for the opportunity to enter the give away! I look forward to learning the answer.

    The video was great. I’d love to visit Israel someday.

    • That’s okay. To enter all you have to do is guess! Your reasoning sounds logical to me. haha
      I’ll share the answer along with a picture of it when I announce the winner.
      You’re welcome and thank you for your kind words. 🙂

  7. I haven’t read this series yet (my bad), but I’m going to guess an iced coffee of some sort. And I’m adding these books to my reading bucket list right now!!

    • Going with my favorite drink is never a bad option. 😝 I guess you’ll have to come back and find out.

    • That’s a good guess! Be sure to come back to find out the answer. I’ll be sharing a pic of the drink when I announce the winner!

  8. Oh, how fun! Though the reality is so different from what I had imagined in my head (I’ve never been to Israel!).
    Thanks for a little glimpse into Cole and Haven’s adventures! I already have the series so don’t enter me in the giveaway.

    • You can always enter and if you win, have them sent to a book-loving friend or even donate them to your church library.

Leave me a note! I always love hearing from you.
