When You Stare Into the Abyss It Also Stares Into You
The bullet that rips into Cole "Tox" Russell was never meant to kill. It was meant to send a message. Only one man is skilled enough to have taken the shot, a rogue Special Forces operator who vanished months ago.
Alec King is perhaps the only person as skilled as Tox, and he's out for justice. Furious with orders that got his men killed, he intends to make those responsible pay. And he insists Tox join him, believing they are the same breed of soldier.
Afraid his old friend could be right, Tox battles a growing darkness within himself as he and his team are forced into another deadly encounter with antiquity. It appears Alec is harnessing the power of a mysterious artifact, a crown that history has linked to some of the worst slaughters in humanity. Racing to stop Alec before his vengeance is unleashed, Tox must fight the monster without becoming one.
"In the riveting second book in Kendig's The Tox Files series, Cole "Tox" Russell is back and trouble seems to have found him again. In this action-packed page-turner, readers will be taken around the globe in another heart-stopping race against time to stop a madman. Tox is an exceptional hero, and his teammates are strong supporting characters. . . . Fans of Dan Brown need to give this series a try as there are interesting historical and biblical elements amongst the mystery. It's clear that an impressive amount of research has gone into this series. Highly recommended."--RT Book Reviews Top Pick

Trying to stop a man he considered a friend and comrade, Cole faces an internal battle in which he believes that if Alec cannot be saved then there is no hope for him. Through the support of his team and the woman who loves him, Cole once again finds himself fighting a battle which started centuries before. The battle between good and evil.
Once you read this book, you will find yourself wanting to go back and start the series all over again! I know I did.
I really was pulled into this story. This is my favorite Ronie Kendig story to date. I thought that I was getting a military tactical action adventure. What you have here in The Crown of Souls is that but with a dash of the supernatural thrown in. Think Indiana Jones, Lara Croft Tomb Raider, and The Mummy (Brendan Fraser version).
This was definitely a reading adventure. I liked Tox- his real name is Cole Russell. He was very devoted to his team and very protective of his love, Haven. Each team member has such a distinct personality and I was biting my nails on some of their exploits. There are overreaching themes it seems that will be running through this series. I am also interested in finding out more about some mysterious characters- are they good or bad or in between.
Another thing which proved to be very important was that there was a little bit of a dual timeline. So what happened in the past was very important and affected the present day. This book was hard to put down and at one time I had to go to sleep but I had left the team in quite a perilous situation. This was an adrenaline filled read that would look great on the big screen. I recommended this to my non-fiction reader husband- there is romance but there is a lot more action adventure. I look forward to the next Tox File and to see where the team’s next adventure takes them.
I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
Crown of Souls combines military maneuvers, history, crime, mystery and a touch of science fiction to bring readers another adrenaline-filled adventure with team Wraith. As the team travels from the US to Iraq, Egypt, and more, readers need to buckle in as they’re swept along with them.
During their mission, Tox fights his demons. Is he like the man he once consider a friend who is extracting vengeance without directive? Will his team leave him when they find out his secret? And most of all, how will Haven feel about him when the truth is brought to light?
Kendig does an excellent job of balancing all of the alpha-male testosterone with Haven and Tzivia. Both of these women hold their own against this group of men. Haven brings out not only protective side but a softer side of Tox that most don’t get to see.
If you’re a fan of Indiana Jones, military movies, or stories that just plain suck you in and carry you along, Crown of Souls is a must-read. It is book 2 in the Tox Files and can be read as a standalone story but you’ll gain more insight to many members of the team if you read Conspiracy of Silence first.
