Ancient Prophesies and Modern Agendas Collide

I really enjoyed Ronie Kendig’s “The Tox Files” series from Bethany House Publishers, and I’ve been continuing through “The Book of the Wars” series as a spin-off that is similar in style. “Soul Raging” is the final story in this series, and I must admit, it lacked a lot of the character depth and compelling plot points that brought the other stories to life for me. Yes, it still contains plenty of adventure, drama, intrigue, and all those elements of suspense – and yet the characters don’t come to life as they did in her earlier books. The story was so action-packed that it seemed like the lives of the characters came second place… and for this character-oriented reader, it was a bit of a disappointment.

All this to say, I am still glad to have read “The Book of the Wars” series, as Ms. Kendig did an incredible job at delivering a mind-bending story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats as ancient prophesies and modern agendas collide. I just wish that this conclusion would have allowed me to experience a bit more connection and shared emotions with the characters. While this element may have been lacking, it was an outstanding story nonetheless, and one that absolutely takes it’s designation as a Suspense novel very seriously!
