Ok, wow. When I first started this book let me say that I was not expecting the experience that I had. I will say first off that this is the second book of a series. I did not read the first one; I wish I did -not that my enjoyment for this one would have been any less. 

I really was pulled into this story. This is my favorite Ronie Kendig story to date. I thought that I was getting a military tactical action adventure. What you have here in The Crown of Souls is that but with a dash of the supernatural thrown in. Think Indiana Jones, Lara Croft Tomb Raider, and The Mummy (Brendan Fraser version). 

This was definitely a reading adventure. I liked Tox- his real name is Cole Russell. He was very devoted to his team and very protective of his love, Haven. Each team member has such a distinct personality and I was biting my nails on some of their exploits. There are overreaching themes it seems that will be running through this series. I am also interested in finding out more about some mysterious characters- are they good or bad or in between.

Another thing which proved to be very important was that there was a little bit of a dual timeline. So what happened in the past was very important and affected the present day. This book was hard to put down and at one time I had to go to sleep but I had left the team in quite a perilous situation. This was an adrenaline filled read that would look great on the big screen. I recommended this to my non-fiction reader husband- there is romance but there is a lot more action adventure.  I look forward to the next Tox File and to see where the team’s next adventure takes them.

I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
