I was supposed to have reviewed this book in July last year but that was too soon after the death of my daughter. I thought I was going to be able to focus and comprehend the complexity of the story. I tried several times but my brain could not retain the characters and plot. Knowing this was going to be a phenomenal story, and that I really needed to get back in the saddle again (not just reading but life!), I prayed and prayed some more. Finally, I began having more clarity in my thinking and comprehending. It was time to pick up this book again and start anew.
Sometimes life takes a turn that we aren't expecting. Discouragement can set in, even despair. But God uses all things to refine his children, making us into who we need to be.
Former Green Beret Heath Daniels and his Military War Dog, Trinity, are an inseparable team. After a career ending injury, Heath and Trinity become members of A Breed Apart, a unique program to boost morale for active military personnel. Their first assignment finds them in Afghanistan where they meet Darci Kintz.
Darci is illusive and careful to keep herself distanced from relationships due to her job but there's an instant connection between her and Heath. When she goes missing, Heath and Trinity are asked to join the Special Forces Team that's going into enemy controlled territory to find her and bring her back.
There's just no disappointment when I read book written by Ronie Kendig. Action. Faith. Suspense. Romance. It's all there, expertly written and woven together to keep me focused on one thing only...the story.
I love how my whole being felt suspended while reading this book. I was full of anticipation, anxiety, and joy; on pins and needles to see what was coming next. If even a fraction of what is written in this book could possibly be true concerning the MWD and handler relationship, then I have to say BRAVO to our military for cultivating some of the finest soldiers out there! And certainly a huge shout out to the author for educating me on such an important aspect of our military, creating fascinating scenarios that unequivocally make my heart pound and my soul weep for the dangers our men and women volunteer to put themselves in, all so I can have the privilege of being an American citizen!
I highly recommend this book to any lover of suspense, actually to anyone because if you're not a fan of high level military suspense now, you just may be after reading Trinity: Military War Dog. I'm looking forward to all the books in this exciting new series!
