Tox did the mission the States wanted him to do. He left the country like they wanted to. In exchange, the States let his team off the hook. Yet when his niece Evie is threatened, he doesn’t hesitate to break those agreements to save her.
Instead of saving Evie, he finds out it was nothing but a ruse to draw him out of hiding. The States needed him to do another job for them. An assassin needs finding, and they think Tox is the best guy to do it. The assassin leads Tox and his team across the world to Tzivia’s dig site, where a dormant, century-old disease was uncovered and unleashed. Before long, they realize they’re battling an ancient super secret society with a super secret goal. With time
With time running out and the threat of a global pandemic rising, Tox and his team realize their sole chance might be to reach back through the centuries of silence to find the only answer that can save them all.
At first, I was a little hesitate about reading this book. Sure, the military/mystery thing had me interested… but tracking down sicknesses and such? Archeological dig sites? Uhhhh… weeeeellllll….
However, it quickly drew me in. The plot line was interesting. They were always on the move, always off to some place new. Ram was mysterious. Tox was quiet but intriguing. Kasey/Haven was the little ray of romance (that, of course, has to be in every book… or so I’ve been told). Poor Levi. Tzivia was feisty, and a go getter. Cell was awesomeness. Chijioke was awesomely loyal. And the ever-elusive Tanin… I loved all the tension in the story and the plot line behind it. As soon as I’m done with this blog post, I’m gonna go find more stories by Ronie Kendig and add them to my TBR pile.
One thing I did not like about this book. *Spoiler* The plague that was unleashed was the same plague that God sent on the Israelites when Korah rebelled? *coughs* This was a divine plague sent by God and also taken away by God. Why would He leave a trace of it behind? It just doesn’t make sense to me. If only it wasn’t such a big part of the story. *End spoiler* Besides that, I enjoyed the book thoroughly. I would recommend picking it up if you get a chance and don’t mind skipping over a little here and there for the spoiler reason.
