Tox has been given the mission to get back the president of the United States who has been abducted. Even though Tox hates politics, and his brother is running against the man, it's not going to affect his judgment. There's also the matter of people getting sick and no one knows why.
Tzivia is trying to find a missing mace that supposedly has supernatural powers. Her brother is on the team with Tox, and she's soon on the same mission.
I don't want to say much more, I don't want to give too much away! It didn't take long to read, first because it's not that long, and second because I couldn't put it down! The end isn't the happiest thing I've ever read, but now I can't wait for Conspiracy of Silence!
This little gem is free. I recommend picking it up, you're not risking anything except a bit of your time. This author has a great style, and I've never been disappointed!
Tox is a top-notch battle-scarred soldier, intelligent, loyal to his country and mission, haunted by his politician family. He has a good group of soldiers that he leads and this group of men is reminiscent of the Raptor 6 posse from the Quiet Professionals series. Tzivia plays a role in this novella as the female archeologist in training who helps with the calamity of an ancient toxin running wild in Syria. There is only a hint of attraction in this novella between Tox and Tzivia; I'm sure that was on purpose to whet our reading appetite for the next books in the series. This novella serves well to introduce the readers to the world of Tox Russell and what he may be dealing with in the future books. And the ending is such a cliff-hanger.....
I've already started the Conspiracy of Silence (next book). Crown of Souls, which follows Conspiracy of Silence, is beckoning me to read Conspiracy of Silence in one sitting so I can get to he next adventure....
Archaeologist Tzivia Khalon knows all about the mace's bloody history, but she's more concerned with assisting her mentor in getting the artifact safely loaned to Syria for the swearing-in of the new president -- and safely returned to their university. When the weapon (and her mentor) go missing, Tzivia finds herself drawn into Tox's investigation as her antiquities expertise makes her a valuable asset as Tox's team faces a foe that believes in the legendary powers of the priceless artifact. Everything Tzivia and Tox thought they knew is called into question as the mace's influence ripples through their mission to save a president -- a mission rapidly spiralling out of control.
The Warrior's Seal is my first introduction to Ronie Kendig's writing (yes, finally!). I've long been familiar with her work as I've heard friends rave about her fast-paced novels, but my gigantic to-be-read pile always got in the way -- until her first release through one of my favorite publishing houses downloaded to my Kindle. I expected action and suspense, and on that score Kendig delivers in spades. But what I didn't expect was the historical/supernatural twist with the introduction of the mace and its impact on current geo-political events. The thirteenth-century prologue starring Tox's Templar Knight predecessor felt forced -- while an interesting concept the Crusades-era action felt rushed and detached when compared to the meticulously constructed Special Forces operation play-by-plays to come.
While some may find the combination of heart-stopping action with a dash of the supernatural to strain credulity, I have high hopes that in a full-length novel the blending of these two disparate genres will come to feel even more seamless. This is a thoroughly entertaining introduction to Kendig's writing and one of the better series intro novellas that I've read, featuring well-developed characters, high-stakes action, and a series set up that calls to mind 24 in its heyday. I cannot wait to see how Kendig develops Tox and his team, and particularly how Tzivia's archaeological endeavors are woven into the narrative. This is an entertaining way to lose an hour or two, and as the novella is free on most e-book platforms, the risk is little while the payoff of being introduced to one who promises to fast become a favorite suspense author is priceless.
