Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig (The Tox Files #1)

I have read a good handful of Kendig's books. I'm usually interested in the titles or the book description, and I thought I knew, at least more or less, what this author writes like. Instead, I got a read that took everything up a notch. Multiple characters that I liked, adventure, romance, military, drama, plot, it really managed to have it all. That is a hard to thing to do. I liked so many of the characters that I can't share it all without doing another one injustice. 

The Warrior's Seal is the prequel and it's free in most places I looked. It's a thriller and it has archeology and Biblical history and while I don't like to use a cliche to compare a book to a movie, it's true in this case. I love things in the style of Indiana Jones, and things along that line. This book didn't disappoint me one bit. 

My thoughts; Page turning I-don't-want-it-to-end-read = 5 Stars. My copy came from Bethany House Bloggers. My review is entirely my own, and of my own free choosing. 


This Is the Way the World Ends. 
Four years after a tragic mission decimated his team, Cole "Tox" Russell has been disavowed by the United States. And that's fine--he just wants to be left alone. But when a dormant, centuries-old disease is unleashed, Tox is lured back into action.
Tox and his former Special Forces team regroup to work with FBI deception expert, Kasey Cortes, and fiery archaeologist, Tzivia Khalon, to search the globe for answers--and a cure. As the mission leads from one continent to another, it becomes clear they're not just fighting a plague but battling an ancient secret society whose true goals remain hidden.
With time running out and the threat for a global pandemic rising, Tox and his team realize their sole chance might be to reach back through centuries of silence to find the only answer that can save them all.

"Kendig's first book in her Tox Files takes readers on an explosive, action-packed global journey to stop a terrorist from releasing a deadly toxin with biblical origins. Kendig has pulled out all the stops in this highly entertaining read that has plot elements of a Tom Clancy or Dan Brown novel. This is a thrill ride with a story that barely stops to catch its breath before the action revs back up again. The hero, Tox, is riveting, the heroine is strong, the secondary cast is well developed and the romance is light but sweet. Kendig has out done herself."
