Overview

Mentioned in the pages of the Septuagint but lost to history, the Book of the Wars has resurfaced, and its pages hold secrets—and dangers—never before seen on earth.

Tasked with capturing the ancient text, former Navy SEAL Leif Metcalfe is finally given command of his own team. But their best efforts are ruined when a notorious Bulgarian operative known as "Viorica" snatches the volume right out from under them.

Iskra "Viorica" Todorova is determined to use the book to secure the thing that matters most—freedom. But a series of strange storms erupts around the globe and the coming dangers foretold in the text threaten crops, lives—entire nations. Though both are haunted by secrets of the past and neither trusts the other, Leif and Iskra must form an uneasy alliance to thwart impending disaster. However, the truth hidden in two-
thousand-year-old words could unleash the storm of their own destruction.

If I had to describe Storm Rising to one random, unsuspecting stranger walking down the road, I would say that it is amazing because really, both the plot and wonderful, complex characters are absolutely amazing. And fast-paced because once the book picks up (which is very soon) it doesn’t stop until the very last page! And suspenseful because I was on the edge of my seat the whole time while reading this. And deep because even though it has the more surface suspense, it also had many deep themes and undercurrents and flawed, real characters that I loved. Finally, I would say that I loved, absolutely LOVED, this book and that they need to buy it and read it as soon as possible. They might walk away a little creeped out because when I’m passionate about something I often come across a little strong. They probably wouldn’t end up buying this amazing book if they’re that creeped out. But let me tell you one thing, if you enjoy edge-of-your-seat suspense with some sweet romance thrown in, I would highly recommend you pick this book up! **I received a complementary copy of this book from the publisher but all the opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are my own.**

“God had a funny sense of humor, making their minds so equally matched.” Incredible. Just incredible. Ronie Kendig is known to unleash high-adrenaline, action-packed, intense military romantic suspense but this first installment in The Book of Wars series absolutely tops her previous books. Mind you, I have adored Tox and his crew through three heart-stopping novels and a novella prequel in The Tox Files but this book, with a covert op leader Leif as the hero and a trained assassin Iskra as his female counterpart, just elevates the experience up a few notches. As Leif’s team, Iskra on behalf of her Russian mobster boss, a German group, and another nebulous entity named Armageddon Coalition all race and fight against each other to find this ancient artifact called The Book of Wars that details previous wars and prophesies future wars, plot twists, betrayals, and fierce loyalty abound to bring forth a book that will set your heart racing. The characters, especially Leif and Iskra, are multi-dimensional and deeply layered. The familiar faces of Mercy and Cell from the Tox Files are sweet to behold but their backstories, if you are not familiar with them, are not necessary to enjoy the plot in Storm Rising. The technology discussed in the story is quite fascinating and I’m anxiously awaiting where Ronie Kendig will take Leif’s team in the next book! If you enjoy a well-written romantic suspense/thriller, this book is a must-read! I received a copy of the book from Bethany House and was under no obligation to post a positive review.

4.5 STARS!!! Every time I pick up a Kendig book, my life goes on hold. Seriously. STORM RISING is pretty much non-stop action with catchy dialogue, which I love!!! My fixation with military TV shows (especially SEAL TEAM) helped me visualize this elite group of operatives and the mission they are involved in. I will say that at first, I wasn’t a fan of Iskra as Leif’s nemesis at all. I felt kind of protective of him and didn’t want him paired with someone unworthy. I feel the same way about Clay and Stella on Seal Team ;-) BUT…I came to understand why the author chose Iskra; her particular strengths and vulnerabilities pair well with Leif, creating some intense moments as well as tender ones. I feel like if I say I can’t wait for book two I’ll be wishing away a year of my life but, Y’all, I can’t wait for book two to come out!!! Needless to say, I liked the story. A lot. It’s filled with bold and valorous characters as well as the ones you’re going to be rooting for this team of amazing operators to take down. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher.

Ronie Kendig, Storm Rising Book One, The Book of Wars A great read, intense action and adventure. The action is powerful from beginning to end. The characters are well written and developed. This is a fast paced read with action around every corner. Be prepared for your heart to pound and hold on to the edge of your seat. If you like military secrets this book is for you. Navy Seal Leif and his team search for a lost book of the Old Testament. And in the process fight Viorica who is also desperately searching for it. They battle each other and this weird weather. You will also find a little romance mixed in the mist. Ronie Kendig did and outstanding job with Storm Rising. Although this was a little different from what I normally read I enjoyed it just as much. I give Storm Rising 5 stars and look forward to book 2.

Storm Rising was action packed, intriguing, and filled with edge of your seat danger! The characters in this book really kept me invested in the story and the plot moved at such a quick pace that it draws the reader into the story as if they are right in the middle of the action.

Ronie Kendig is back with a brand new series and a group you’ll love! Leif “Runt” Metcalfe has been tasked with finding the Book of Wars and builds a team he believes can assist him. Y’all, the number one thing I loved about the team was seeing people from past Kendig books. Nothing like running into old friends! Plus, I really loved meeting the new people. I think I’ll have some favorites. With a diverse group of characters—from all backgrounds, faith, etc—you’ll love the team that takes you on a journey all over the world. And the romance thread…. I love romance and this one is no exception. What’s even better? The hints of romance between other team members. I love that the team isn’t all male because it makes it that much more realistic and entertaining. Oh and did I mention I read this in one sitting, squinting at one in the morning to make sure I was reading the correct words and not succumbing to sleep? Only now I have to wait for book 2 which means book 1 will be reread a few times for memory’s sake. All in all, I’m thrilled for another Kendig book and a new series. *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher via NetGalley. My review was not required nor influenced.

Storm Rising is a spin off from the Tox Files series, so if you’ve had withdrawal after Thirst of Steel ended, you will definitely want to be first in line to read Storm Rising. Leif Metcalf takes center stage in Storm Rising to form his own team to hunt down a much sought after mystical artifact. Several characters from other novels make guest appearances, plus new characters team up to fight super powerful storms, an illusion assassin named Viorica, and other mysterious forces. As a fan of Ronie Kendig, this novel brought all the usual chaos and action I’ve come to love from her novels. The characters work their way into your heart as they face impossibly perilous situations. The author creates characters that readers fall in love with, but of course don’t get too attached, because you never know who might not survive to the end of the story! Cross over characters are a bonus but new ones will keep readers flipping pages. Of course this is the first in a series so expect some cliffhangers. If you are a fan of gut-wrenching adrenaline-fueled non-stop action and suspense, then this book has to be number one on your summer TBR list. Seriously, stop reading this review and get Storm Rising in your hands. Now. And don’t plan on sleeping anytime soon, because you’ll be tempted to read it cover to cover in one sitting.

If you are looking for a read that is high adrenaline, fueled by lots of action, and tons of secrets- then look no further than Storm Rising, which is the first of what garners to be a great action packed series. Taken from a couple of verses from the Old Testament, there are several world powers that are looking for The Book of the Wars. I absolutely love it when authors pull out these verses from the Bible and can make a story around them. I never noticed this book before, not to say I haven’t read the verses before, but there are quite a few books mentioned in the Bible which I find fascinating. Using the wonder of imagination, we have a very tight story with a team of secret soldiers looking for this book who come up against the best of the best and worst of the worst enemies. And there is some real baddies in here that think nothing of mass murder or anything else to get their way. Our hero Leif Metcalfe is the team leader. He is a soldier who has been tasked with finding this book. He is also dealing with some secrets from his past that he can’t even remember. So as we go along with him, sometimes things will set him off and we as a reader are left holding our breath wondering just how dangerous and how far Leif will go. Iskra, or her nickname Viorica, has not had a very nice life. The author does not shy away with how difficult life has been for this dangerous spy. Iskra is good at what she does and she has ulterior motives for wanting that book as well. When she and Leif meet there is definitely an undercurrent of something more between them than just enemies. I enjoyed Leif’s team as well. We get to know them and a bit of their personal lives as well. What I really liked was how they all had each other’s backs. Which is very important as who can you really trust in this world where some want to control all- as in global control. That ending-sublime. Looking forward to Kings Falling.

When I pick up a Ronie Kendig book, I know I’m going to be in for a wild, action-packed, fantastic ride, and Storm Rising was no exception! With fascinating, multi-layered, engaging characters and settings in diverse areas of the globe, this book drew me in with its nonstop action, precarious situations, and thrilling escapades. One of Kendig’s strengths is creating deep, complex, and well-developed characters, and Leif Metcalfe and Iskra Todorova are examples of her brilliant characterization. They are engaging and competent, intense and sometimes vulnerable, and I couldn’t help hoping for a happy ending for them. It was a joy to see some familiar characters pop up from previous Ronie Kendig books. Their various personalities and strengths added to my enjoyment of the tale, and I loved the witty banter I can always expect between them. The action in this book is intense, and I often wondered how the author was going to get the team out of their predicament, but she always managed to do it in creative, imaginative ways. If you enjoy mind-blowing action and suspense with lots of intrigue and spots of romance thrown in, this is the book for you. I’m excited to see what she has in store for the other books in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy from the publisher/NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

This book has it all. Tight pacing, an ensemble cast, and a love story in the making. Ronie Kendig is a master at the military thriller that also has heart. This book will thrill her previous readers and be a fantastic introduction to new-to-her readers. One thing I love about her last series and this one is the way that's she's tying Biblical mysteries to the series. It's Dan Brown like and such a fun read. I also CAN'T wait for the next one. I may need to bug her until she lets me read it as she writes it.

There is a Storm Rising in the Middle East that may indicate the End Times have arrived. Iskra, aka Viorica, is a trained assassin tasked with retrieving an ancient text called the Book of Wars in Israel. So is ex-SEAL Leif and his team provided by the US government. Both need to work together to seize it from Rutger Hermanns, a ruthless German businessman and part-time archaeologist, who has snatched it from Israeli scientists. The Book of Wars has some lethal secrets best kept away from foreign powers. The book is mentioned in the Bible as being prophetic by sharing information about future wars. Storm Rising is a typical military thriller. It has an American team of misfits from various nations and religions. There is the usual romance, mysterious back stories, and good-natured joshing of fellow team members. The initial opposition is by a lone assassin, who must get the book to save her life after one too many screw-ups in the past. However, it soon becomes apparent that Leif may have to team with Iskra to prevent the German villain from using the book for his nefarious plan. Storm Rising is about the fight between Christians and Muslims leading into Armageddon. Muslims are clearly the enemy. Jews aren’t even mentioned. Therefore, this book is recommended only for secular and Christian readers. The plot was good but there is not much originality here. The characters are the best part. You definitely want the heroes to win. Plus the combat scenes were intense and set the reader right in the middle of the fight. Unfortunately, there are an overwhelming number of characters plus a cliffhanger ending, which I detest. It still earns 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars. It will be even higher if you are a fan of military or action thrillers. Thanks to Bethany House and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

Five stars! "Totally wicked" describes it. Leif Metcalfe is assigned his own team to hunt down The Book of the Wars that is mentioned in the Bible. It supposedly tells of the wars past, present and wars to come. His team is in a race against time to retrieve it before it falls into the wrong hands and starts Armageddon. Lots of action and humor and a little bit of romance. Kendig has a hit series on her hands. I wish it was a movie!

Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig is the first book in the new Book of Wars series. I was fascinated by Leif and cannot wait to learn even more about him and his skills. And what happened to him and his team, and the 6 months that he cannot remember. He was the highlight of the book to me. Leif is a navy seal and if you follow Kendig he is the brother to Canyon Metcalfe from Wolfesbane(Discarded Heros-book 3). Leif has been given a team to find the Book of Wars. I was thrilled that we have Mercy and Cell back for Leif’s team. Devine was another character that I enjoyed. Her skills were impressive. Kendig did a good job of redeeming Iskra, an assassin. She has you believing she will be good for Leif. Some fun scenes when Leif and Iskra are both going after the same items-think Mr and Mrs Smith. The Book of Wars was fascinating. In addition, it was frightening to think someone could control the weather. Especially since most of the US has been flooding for the last month. Storm Rising didn’t have as many faith elements I was expecting and was a little darker than I expected. It is a great story and I will definitely be reading the rest of the series. If you are new to Kendig’s writing the introduction of the team may seem overwhelming. Hang in there. It is worth it. Violence – you know that Iskra has been raped since a young age and held against her will. I received this book from Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review.

I've never been disappointed in a book by Ronnie Kendig. This book starts out with a bang and never lets up. What a great read. I loved the plot and all the characters. I like reading authors that make you feel like you're right there alongside everybody. Yes, I even held my breath a few times. I read a lot of Kendig's first books. Apparently a lot of the characters in this book were in a previous book I haven't read. I still feel like I knew them personally. Lief is my favorite. He is leading a team to try and retrieve the book of wars that has reappeared. This is just a part of what's going on. I'm not going into the details as a lot of reviewers do. Just know it's a very exciting, action filled ride. I received this book from the publisher via Net Galley for my honest opinion.

Wow. I knew I wanted to read Leif's story, but Kendig managed to put it on a whole other level. In the start of an exhilarating new series, my attention was captured from the start and never let up throughout the whole book. Not even for a second. Jam packed with action, readers will not be able to tear themselves away from the story. It's intense, thrilling, scary, and yes even swoony. Leif is my favorite character from Kendig, ever. There's just something about him, even with his missing memories, that make him so attractive. **sigh** Let's talk about Iskra for a moment. What a cool character. Okay yes, her circumstances are horrendous. In fact, I cannot even imagine having to go through all the stuff she has been through in her life. But even in that she was able to fight. She held her head high and kept going. And y'all, she can pack quite a punch! She doesn't even allow you to feel pity for her - she just wants you on her side. Throughout the book you see little moments of vulnerability, and those are the times I liked best. For both her and Leif. Ronie Kendig has been on my radar for quite awhile now, and rightly so. How she is able to get so much energy inside of her books just boggles my mind. There are some things in this book that hint to what's ahead for this series and I can honestly say that I cannot wait to see what's next. I know it's going to be more danger, more action, and more swoony moments that are sure to bring a smile to this reader's face! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The Books of Wars has been found. It is said to hold secrets to both the past and the future--which is why powers all over the world want it. Former Navy Seal Leif Metcalfe is leading a team to find the book for the United States. Iskra "Viorica" Todorova also wants the book--but she wants to secure her freedom from an evil power that holds her captive. Then there are the other evil powers who also want the book for their own use. With all of them searching and facing other evils in the world it makes for one exciting, action-packed book. Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig is the first book of the Book of the Wars series. Wow! I was on the edge of my seat throughout reading this fascinating book. It has suspense, mystery, romance--everything you could want in one book. Storm Rising is full of strong characters. Some I started out not liking but by the end of the book, once I knew the whole story, I could truly feel for them. I have not read Kendig's series The Tox Files but I understand this book also has some characters that were in that series. I liked the tight story that kept me turning pages, anxious to know what happened next. I find the item they are searching for, The Book of the Wars to be interesting and can't wait to learn more. The most difficult thing about Storm Rising is that I have to wait until April 2020 for book 2, Kings Falling! Oh, and the covers for this series are great! In the meantime, I am going back to read The Tox Files since I want to know all I can about this characters. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher.

I needed a seat belt for this ride! Ronie Kendig knows a thing or two about action and I have learned to expect a punch from the get-go. Hunky heroes, tragic assassins, unprecedented storms and hints of super soldiers? How does Kendig keep outdoing herself? One of Kendig’s greatest strengths is her characters. Enter Leif “Runt” Metcalfe, a man missing six moths of his life and looking for some answers. A familiar face to those who have read The Tox Files, Leif more than holds his own as the leading man. I was wary of Iskra at first. I knew she had a lot going on under the surface, but she fought tooth and nail to keep her secrets. As the layers slowly unfolded though, my heart broke for her. And the romance? The chemistry between Leif and Iskra nearly singed my eyelashes! They just get each other. There are some hints of other romances on the team as well and I am more than ready to dive into these relationships. If you’re ready for a high-octane read and a sleepless night or two then this is the book for you. Just be prepared for the torture of waiting for the sequel.

I am not sure why it has taken me this long to fall in love with Ronie Kendig's writing, but I am very thankful there are lots more books I can catch up with! If you like action, suspense, current world events or shows on the military (ie, NCIS, The Unit, The A-Team, Shooter, Seal Team) this book is for you! "Storm Rising" is the first book in a new series called the Book of the Wars. Kendig sets up the premise of new characters (and enemies) in a realistic, involving way. What's not to fall in love with? There's danger lurking around every corner, a paramilitary group, Biblical archaeology, secret scrolls ( as mentioned in Numbers 21:14a) that can predict future wars, odd meteorological storms that pop out of nowhere...and two main characters who both have difficult backstories. Since I am only embarking on the beginning of my new appreciation of Kendig's work, I am a bit behind the times, as her prior Tox Files series was wildly successful, earning her many accolades. I can see why that happened, as Kendig does her military research. She also reminds the reader of the humanity and heartbreaks of the soldiers involved in life and death situations, something those who are not familiar with military life might not understand. Lead male character Leif Metcalfe has been mentioned in prior Kendig stories (Crown of Souls) and has another appearance in "Thirst of Steel." The female character of Viorica has some secrets of her own, as a well known assassin/spy should have. But all is not as it seems, and the reader must develop their own ideas of whom is trustworthy and who is playing both sides. Kendig's writing is action filled but still has time for emotion, addressing unique struggles and finding a hopeful future after the drama subsides. There is also a great feeling of camaraderie that is central to the development of the story, characters and the final cliffhanging end. (If you've followed my reviews for any length of time, you know how hard cliffhangers are for me!) I started this book a little while ago, but life got in the way. Once I dug in, though, I finished this book in record time. It was so good that there were actually times I was holding my breath, something I rarely do with books! The story progresses like a good action movie and after a while, your feelings of urgency matches that of the characters in distress! I was able to read an early copy, thanks to Bethany House and chose to leave a review. All opinions are my own. Hurry, Ronie. I can't wait for the next entry in the series!

Make no mistake, Ronie Kendig is a master at her craft! Storm Rising is the first in her new series, The Book of Wars. With over 30 novels written since 2010, Kendig has won multiple awards. While many of her novels are Christian military suspense and romance, the author also delves into other genres such as fantasy. The premise, or foundation, of The Book of Wars is based on an ancient text from the Septuagint, which is, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, “a Greek version of the Jewish scriptures redacted in the third and second centuries b.c. by Jewish scholars and adopted by Greek-speaking Christians.” Whew! That is a rather mind boggling description and one I think I’ll leave to the more learned scholars. Moving on to Storm Rising... The Book of Wars is an ancient text full of secrets and many are those who want to possess it. Former Navy Seal, Leif Metcalfe (aka Runt) is tapped to command his own team to find The Book of Wars before someone else can. Iskra “Viorica” Todorova is determined to find the book for with the book she can obtain her freedom from a cruel taskmaster, a man who has no good purpose for the ancient text. Amidst unusual and destructive storms worldwide, Leif and Viorica form a rather interesting pact to obtain The Book of Life, before the next storm unleashes, destroying entire countries and the entire team. Those readers who have read Kendig’s previous military suspense series will recognize Leif Metcalfe, or Runt, along with a few others who make up the first team Runt commands. If you have not read the previous series, that is of no consequence, Storm Rising is the first in a new series and enjoyment does not hinge upon having read any previous novels. For me as a reader, bringing in characters from previous series’ just makes the reading that much more fun! However, it generally takes about a year for a novel to be released from the first basic outline to the finished product; that means you have lots more time to read some of Kendig’s previous novels. I bet you’ll be hooked! Full of nonstop action, Storm Rising will keep the reader on the edge of their seats. I very highly recommend it. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and am under no obligation to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions therein are solely my own, and freely given.

I finished this book last night and still need to process! So good. I really need book 2 to come out soon! First, if you have not read The Tox Files I would highly suggest reading that series first. Some of the characters from The Tox Files are integral parts of Storm Rising. I LOVED Storm Rising! Leif Metcalfe, returns and is leading his own team. He was selected to lead this team due to his specific set of skills. Skills he doesn't even understand. Skills he is going to need to get the Book of Wars and keep his team safe. And of course, he and his team are not the only ones after the book. Multiple players are looking for it in this potentially deadly game. And the most deadly one? An assassin known for her black soul. Storm Rising kept me engaged and thoroughly engrossed for the entire read! Ronie Kendig does it again, providing a story that draws you in and leaves you wanting more. So many threads of various characters histories and intentions are pulled causing you to keep reading because you "have to know". Did I already mention I am really ready for book 2?

*CAUTION: May contain some spoilers (very mild)* Genre : Christian Fiction/suspense/Action/Romance My rating: 4.5 stars! Language: Clean (however, there is the use of "bull". Personally, I do not find it a swear word, but I know some do) Age Range: 16+ Content: There is talk of sexual activities and insinuations (mild-medium). Which is why I would say maybe 16 years on up. There is some heavy stuff there. There is some talk of rape and abuse, which for some who are sensitive to those things, should be aware of. Favorite Character: Leaf!! Oh yeah, the main character all the way. I also like Mercy, because she is a Marvel Nerd, and I'm a Marvel Nerd, so I connected well to her :). Summary: I love it! This was a little different from the Tox Files (which I adore!), but this is still a fascinating book. Great start to a new series and I'm excited to read the next one which comes out in 2020!

When you take Robert Langdon, add Captain America (and maybe a bit of Wolverine), include a bit of Stargate (minus the gods)...you get a Storm. Seriously, this book has it all: action, adventure, historical intrigue, a touch of romance, and a dynamic between its two main heroes that just makes you wish you were a part of the team! Ronie Kendig ups her ante with every new release, and this one is no different. A must read for your summer! I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher.
