Book Review - Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig


Does an Ancient Book of Prophecy Hold the Answers to Saving the World . . . Or Predict Its Destruction?

Mentioned in the pages of the Old Testament 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 once more 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, and 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 centuries-old words could unleash a storm of their own destruction.


Ronie Kendig ( is an award-winning, bestselling author of over twenty novels. She grew up an army brat, and now she and her Army-veteran husband live a short train ride from New York City with their children and a retired military working dog. Ronie's degree in psychology has helped her pen novels of intense, raw characters.


This is the first in a new series by Ronie Kendig. The Book of the Wars series is sure to be a great series if Storm Rising is any indication!

This book is thrilling and action packed! We are introduced to former Navy Seal, Leif Metcalfe, a man of mission yet with flaws and regrets. We also meet Iskra "Viorica" Tonorova, an assassin who is known throughout the world. She is the nemesis of Leif and the story line between them is quite intense.

Leif is made the leader of his own team with the task of finding the Book of Wars, a book mentioned in the Septuagint. That Viorica is after the book too, makes this story highly intense and you will find yourself on the edge of your seat while reading!

I really liked this story because it was to action-packed, had flawed yet likable characters, and kept my attention throughout. I highly recommend it and give it 5 stars.
