Kendig’s fans are in for a real treat with this second installment in the A Breed Apart Series. For those who have yet to pick up a book by this brilliant author, trust me, you won’t want to wait a moment longer.

KatyTennesseeGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Exciting and full of tensionJune 14, 2015KatyTennesseeGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Talon: Combat Tracking Team is a really exciting book, the second one in A Breed Apart trilogy. I am glad the books are connected and the main cast of characters are in all the books. I think this feature adds depth and layers to the series and draws the reader more deeply into each subsequent book.
The plot is intriguing and pulls the story along at a very fast pace. The characters generally fit their parts and I especially like the hero and heroine, Dane and Aspen. I enjoyed the slight romantic thread. I think it adds great tension to the story and is very realistic. The backstory woven into the novel takes it to a much higher plane than the average suspense novel, and gives Talon strength and complexity.
I had a slight bit of difficulty following the action and dialogue in a couple of places, but overall it is a top-notch read. If you like military, spy novels or novels that include dogs as main characters, I think you will enjoy this book.

TalonAspen is sure her twin still lives - she would have known if he was dead. But her brother's tracking dog, Talon, suffers from P.T.S.D. and quivers at the slightest noise. She's about to go to her brother's last known location by herself, with Talon along hopefully to help and not to tuck tail under and hide. As she's readying for the trip, help appears from an unexpected quarter.
Dane Markoski, a puzzling and enigmatic military intelligence agent, also wants to find Austin - he's never lost an operative. He appears by "chance" to help Aspen, but he really only wants Talon - he'd never work with a woman. Should she trust the shadowy Dane? Is he friend - or foe? With them both putting misgivings aside, they finally join forces, but can be successful only if Talon can rise to his old state of competence.
Full of twists and turns, this tale of a tail will have you troubled one moment and touched the next. Talon, the second of three novels in Ronie Kendig's series on Military War Dogs, is as much a winner s the first, Trinity, was. Her third, Beowulf, will release soon. If you like action, adventure, romance, and most of all, dogs, you'll want to buy the series. Ronie is one of my fave authors and will become one of yours, too, I'm certain.
