Firethorn can easily be praised for simply being fun entertainment, but within this story are spiritual elements that should be equally praised and considered. I enjoyed reading about Griffin, Kazi, Range, and Marshall s almost subconscious seeking of redemption. The family dynamics of these same characters also highlight the bonds that are hard to break because they are worth fighting for and sustaining. Stripped of its action and relentless pacing is still a fantastic story that offers healing, restoration, and hope.
I absolutely cannot recommend this series enough. I m not a romance reader, but I have fallen in love with these books. Firethorn is the perfect conclusion to the Discarded Heroes series. However, I do hope we have not seen the end of the Nightshade team. Please, please, please bring them back for another few rounds! --Melissa Willis The Christian Manifesto 2011-01-01
Ronie Kendig hit a grand slam with the writing of Firethorn. It is the fourth book in the Discarded Heroes Series and she did not disappoint those of us who eagerly awaited her next turn at the plate with the bases loaded. The first three books were definitely hits, but Firethorn delivered the much-anticipated homerun.
Be prepared for a tear jerker. Kendig brings home the horrible and unfair cruelty of war, making readers aware of what our real, true life heroes and their families face every day. This book requires a box of Kleenex at your side. Saying goodbye to these characters who have become like best friends throughout the series is not easy.
Through Griffin and Kazi, two individuals with serious faith issues, Kendig shows the reader the importance of learning to trust, not only those around us, but God the Ultimate Protector. Kendig s fans won t want to miss the conclusion of the Discarded Heroes Series. --Elizabeth Olmedo Fiction Addict 2011-12-14

When the attack went down, Griffin "Legend" was in a maximum security prison for a high profile murder he didn't commit. Trying to protect his family from what's happening to him isn't easy. When a woman visits him, suddenly it becomes a prison break.
They're going to have to work together to get the team back. Kazi is a spy that is focused on her mission. That's her one and only goal. Griffin is used to being part of a team, and these two butt heads right from the start. He's not sure he can trust her, and she's not willing to give up any of herself to him. She's trapped under the thumb of a ruthless man she fears she will never be free of. If she finishes this mission, she should be able to disappear and retire.
This book was a whirlwind from beginning to end. From the moment the warehouse is attacked, you're going back and forth between many characters. At times, almost too many. You end up reading through at least seven characters' eyes. More than once, I came across a change in scene and thought, "Oh yeah, I forgot about them!" It all comes together in the end, you just have to hang in there!
Overall, it's a good book. I was a little teary eyed at the end, so be warned that it's not all sunshine and roses. This was a great series and I recommend it. I also recommend you read them in order, just so you get a sense of who everyone is and their role in the team before it's scattered to the wind!
Kendig superbly writes strong characters, their angst, their valor, heart, struggles; and wraps you up in nonstop suspense, action and life lessons all the way until the end. Lessons on fear, forgiveness, pride, struggling to be in control and learning to trust - others and God. There is so much to give nod to, I feel as if I could go on and on. The interactions and relationships are so real, so well fleshed out that they live and breath off the pages. There were a few chuckles during the reading of this novel, but also some tears shed. Man, I hate to say goodbye to this group of characters! Any chance they can make a come back in another series!?!
One thing I can say for sure, Kendig has found a fan in me! A superb series and finale!
