My Thoughts on Shadow of Honor
What makes a book echo through your heart? Is it the characters? The setting? The mood you’re in? Or a combination of all three?
Shadow of Honor was everything and more than I was hoping for. Like the last two books in the series, I was sucked in and when I came up, I felt like I was in a different world; yet the only thing that had shattered was my mind.
I think Ronie Kendig is one of the best (if not the best) authors I know of in terms of writing her characters. She can make you love and dislike characters all in the space of a few chapters; I think it probably has something to do with her understanding of human psychology. But the characters are ones you cannot get out of your head, they stick with you. They get under your skin in ways most characters don’t.
Nonetheless, Ronie Kendig crafted another wonderful story that made me want to scream at the end (read it and you’ll understand why).
It is a definite 5 billion stars from me and I am eagerly anticipating what the outcome of the final book will be next year. And my sincere thanks to Enclave Publishing for letting Ronie Kendig add a fourth book to the series.
About Shadow of Honor
The war he fears may be the very one he’s been called to start.
Held captive, tortured by monsters of a nightmarish alien race, Marco Dusan clings to a final goal: keep these beasts from the Quadrants, even if it means orchestrating his own death. But his dreams betray that singular design. In them his bonded calls to him across lightyears. Does he leave her to fight Symmachia alone, or risk bringing an unwinnable war to every planet in the Quadrants?
On board the alien dreadnought, Eija Zacdari flounders, torn amidst military machinations, prophecies, and an inexplicable bond with one of the fearsome creatures who have imprisoned her friends. Only by uncovering the truth about an ancient conflict now shrouded in deception will she find her place.
Faced with her true identity, Eija sees her purpose snap into focus, and she realizes the war Marco fears may be the very one he has been called to start.
About Shadow of Honor’s Author Ronie Kendig
An Army brat, Ronie Kendig grew up in the classic military family, with her father often TDY and her mother holding down the proverbial fort. Their family moved often, which left Ronie attending six schools by the time she’d entered fourth grade. Her respite and “friends” during this time were the characters she created.
It was no surprise when she married a military veteran—her real-life hero—in June 1990 and recently celebrated their 30th Anniversary. Despite the craziness of life, Ronie finds balance and peace with her faith, family, retired military working dog VVolt N629, and Benning the Stealth Golden a short train ride from New York City.
Ronie has a deep love and passion for people, which is why she earned a degree in Psychology from Liberty University. Ronie speaks and teaches across the country and mentors other writers.
