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. The pages in Talon are brimming with twists and one in particular is bound to thrill readers. There is no question, this novel has made my “Best of 2013” list.

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.

amb325 Stars Out Of 5A Memorable Read!July 27, 2013amb32Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Non-stop action and sizzling chemistry best describe the experience of reading Talon! The suspense scenes make your heart beat faster, and I'm not quite sure how once again Kendig is able to create such intense chemistry between her hero and heroine. She describes how the characters simply look at each other with skill, so that you feel like you are actually there watching their romance develop in person. Yet, the book is not just about a romance relationship. Kendig has definitely researched her topic, and her knowledge of military practices really enhance the suspense scenes, and the plot is interesting and keeps the reader turning page after page. Just like with Trinity, the first book in this series, I was drawn in by the idea of a war dog being one of the main characters. This is the first series I've ever read that uses that particular theme. Thanks again to Ronie Kendig for creating a memorable, enjoyable read!
GodBlessAmericaHills of KentuckyAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Talon is a 5++ book!July 20, 2013GodBlessAmericaHills of KentuckyAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Talon by Ronie Kendig is packed full of adventure. This is a new genre and author for me, but I will be reading more by this author. First up will be Trinity, book #1 in the A Breed Apart Series, which introduces the reader to the world of military war dogs.
The suspense, romance and danger kept me reading long after I should have been asleep. With the unforgettable characters of Cardinal, Aspen and the "star" of the book Talon, this is a book and series for men as well as women and sure the please both. I give Talon a 5++ rating.
I received this book from Net Galley and Barbour Publishing for my honest review and was not paid in any way for the review.
