Warrior’s Seal – Ronie Kendig – The Tox Files #0.5 – Bethany House Publishers – 1 October 2016
Special Forces operator Cole “Tox” Russell and his team are tasked in a search-and-rescue—the U.S. president has been kidnapped during a goodwill tour. The mission nosedives when an ancient biblical artifact and a deadly toxin wipe out villages. Tox must stop the terrorists and the toxin to save the president–and his team–before it’s too late!
The Warrior’s Seal is a novella that starts the explosive new series, The Tox Files. Action, history, ancient artefacts, the President’s life in danger, and a mysterious toxin killing hundreds.
Cole ‘Tox’ Russell is a Special Forces operator. When the President is kidnapped, Tox and his team are tasked with his retrieval. But a deadly toxin is spreading and killing everyone in its path. Tox will have to determine if the two events are connected and how to stop the terrorist, keep from becoming infected, and save the President.
I enjoyed this novella. It is fast-pasted and has instantly likeable characters. I recommend reading this novella before starting Consipracy of Silence as it explains the lead-up events that set the scene and backstory for the first book in the series. But it might help to have Conspiracy of Silence on hand because you are going to want to drive straight in after reading this book.
I’m really looking forward to reading Conspiracy of Silence now, can’t wait to see what happens next for Tox and Tzivia, and see how this series develops.
The Tox Files promise to be an exciting mix of adrenaline-filed action, ancient history and a touch of the fantastical.
