[I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for a review. This review is my own opinion. Affiliate links used.]
Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig is a book outside of my preferred genres, but I love reading outside those genres. No matter what type of book you gravitate to, you can ALWAYS recognize excellent storytelling. Truly, I believe this.
Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig
Where do I even begin with this book? The weaving of Biblical history, medieval history, and present day blew my mind, especially how all those separate pieces truly drove the story! Although the characters absolutely had issues of their own to work on, the problems they faced were SO much bigger.
This story is not relationship driven (although I have a soft spot for those stories). Explosions and shiny, terrifying arrows are killing people. Events are happening so quickly that you can hardly catch your breath.
Although I had to put the book down to do the necessary things (like be nice to people), I didn’t want to.
About Conspiracy of Silence in Barbara’s Words
Kasey Cortez still needs to prove herself as an FBI deception detector. And Tox’s return to undercover work is the perfect opportunity because no one knows if he truly can be trusted.
Tox has been summoned to take care of a problem that no one else has the skills for. When he and his team poke the beast, the already big problem unravels into a much bigger problem. Will his skills be enough to save the world and himself?
Conspiracy of Silence Struggles
So here’s a thing. I didn’t realize that Ronie Kendig is a girl until about halfway through the book when for a slight moment, the focus shifted from explosions to a flash of romance. And the romance was so good, I had to stop and check if the author was female or male. Yes, I know men can write good romance.
I list this in the struggle section because I wasn’t sure how I felt about romance in this story. Did it move the plot forward? Did it inspire character growth? What was the general purpose?
But really, in the vast measure of this book and others, it’s a VERY tiny struggle. 😉
Shoo. Not sure where to begin!
LOVED the history with Biblical and medieval.
LOVED the combinations of different character perspectives
LOVED the characters. Each seemed strong and unique and developed.
LOVED the action and the plot.
I loved it all so much that it’s already been shared with my dad to read (he was looking for something great to read, and I was like, “Here it is.” and handed him Conspiracy of Silence).
Keep Up With My Reviews!
On a scale of cotton candy to Brussels sprouts, Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig was a baked Alaska. The flames burst forth and what you find is a cold shock.
Tox (Cole Russell) is dead. Well, not really, but everyone who ever knew him thought so because he made a deal: his life for the lives of his team. But that’s old history until the government lures him into an undercover operation because they need someone expendable who doesn’t exist.
Phew, the book…riveting. That’s the only way I can really describe it. With a mix of Biblical history, medieval history, and modern day, I couldn’t get enough. Oh, and yes, between all the fights, assassins, and unanswered questions, love seeps in.
If you’re looking for a fast-paced, action packed story, this one just might be for you!
