Former Marine and current Nightshade team member Griffin Riddell is comfortable. So comfortable he never sees the setup that lands him in a maximum security prison, charged with murder. How will he ever prove his innocence stuck behind iron bars?
Covert operative Kazi Faron is tasked with reassembling Nightshade. She's convinced whoever set up the fugitive also dissected the black ops team. But breaking Griffin out of a federal penitentiary amid explosive confusion may turn out to be her last assignment, because Kazi has a secret - and it could get everyone killed.
As Kazi and Griffin race to rescue the others and discover the traitor, love awakens in their hearts. Can a covert operative and the felon she's freed overcome their mutual distrust long enough to save Nightshade? Will anything prepare them for who - or what - is coming?
I seriously devoured this book. In two work and horseback riding-filled days. It made me late for work at least once, and caused me to stay up late each night to finish that "one more chapter".
What made this novel so good to me? The characters were real and well developed. They were multi-faceted as characters should be, because that's what we are as humans! You felt their emotions as easily as if they were your own, and truly cared for them.
The story was non-stop excitement from the first page. Ronie's familiarity with the military is clearly evident in this book and gives a sense of realism to each scene.
It is by far one of the best novels I have read this year. The saddest thing about finishing the novel was that it was the last one in this amazing series - "Discarded Heroes". I can't wait for the next novel from Ronie!
