Cole Russell commands a secret Special Forces unit that currently is on leave when Cole is shot by a sniper bullet.  There is something unique about the bullet that leads to a familiar shooter.  Cole and his unit are then hot on the trail of one of their own.  Cole seems to be two steps behind his former friend, Alec King, and the bodies and violence are escalating.  They discover that as Alec seems to be wearing an ancient crown, he becomes more and more deranged as well as more powerful.  He wants Cole to joint his fight as he insists they are the same type of soldier.  Cole recognizes feeling some of the same things Alec does and thinks about joining up with him.  His girlfriend and deception expert, Haven, has other ideas and continues telling Cole what a different man he is than Alec.  Cole still battles feeling guilty and unworthy of Haven’s love and respect.  Can he save others from Alec’s evil climactic event as well as himself or will he live up to his nickname and prove toxic?

Wow!  What a riveting story that captivated me from cover to cover.  I love these types of stories that combine elements of danger, adventure, mystery, romance, faith, archeology and history.  I also like the military aspect of the story where readers see soldiers willing to give the ultimate sacrifice of their lives to serve and protect our freedom and our country.  Thank you to those who have in the past or are currently serving in the military!  The writing is top notch and will draw readers in from page one.  The search for truth and justice is one many can relate to and get involved with; I know I sure did and loved it!  There were some questions left unanswered at the end of the story, so I’m anxiously awaiting book three in the series.  Thank you, Ronie, for another great adventure!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
