Excellent
5 stars By Wendy, Aug 04 2010
Wow, Ronie has written another superb novel.  Tightly written with imagery that makes the plot come alive.  I felt like I was watching from the sidelines.  Ronie really gets into the male psyche well and explored the issue of post traumatic stress disorder with sensitivity.  There were a couple of things I thought were left unanswered at the end of the novel- hopefully book number two will address some of these.  The story of Jon and Kimber was particularly touching and thought provoking and gave me insight into how to cope when God's way of answering our prayers is vastly different to what we might want for ourselves.  Ronie emphasises the need to trust in and rely on God's strength as the only way to cope with all that life throws at us without sounding preachy.
Highly recommend this novel for anyone who loves a believable action novel.

Brilliant action and suspense
5 stars By Rel Mollet, Jul 12 2010
Make room Dee Henderson, tip your hat Chuck Holton, Ronie Kendig has well and truly arrived and stamped her authority in the suspense genre! There are writers who excell at characterisation, others pace their stories to perfection while some can write a love story that touches the soul yet rarely have I seen those talents combined...until now! Just like the Hayabusa motorbike Max Jacobs rides, Nightshade is a powerful and electrifying read, accelerating through danger at breakneck speed and stirring deep emotion as Max and Sydney watch their marriage disintegrate and danger come to their door. Ronie's ability to capture the male perspective is mind blowing as Max struggles to assimilate after his tours of duty in Afghanistan, finding safety and acceptance only in returning to high risk black ops missions. Men and women alike will find themselves captivated by Ronie's exceptional talent and I can confidently say Nightshade is a book you will be unable to put down. The sequel, Digitalis, simply can't come soon enough for me!
