After reading Nightshade, I eagerly anticipated the release of Digitalis. Having enjoyed Nightshade so much and loving the concept of the Discarded Heroes series, I wondered if Digitalis would stand up to my expectations. Would the characters be as real? The story as action packed and suspenseful? Could Kendig keep my interest going in this story of elite ex-military men saving the world from all kinds of unknown evil? Uh, yes!
This story was even better than the first in the series. I fell in love with Colton “Cowboy” Neeley and his dedication to those he loves. He’s an obvious hero with all the baggage that comes with the job. Emotionally traumatized by the deadly missions he’s been a part of, he wonders if he’ll ever get past debilitating flashbacks.
He’s a single father, but is interested in a beautiful young woman he knows virtually nothing about. Piper Blum is every bit as intriguing as Neeley’s character. Her life appears mundane, but we soon find out she’s on the run from someone. Or something. Out of necessity, she turns to Colton for help. An unfortunate set of circumstances follows, tearing them apart before they even have a chance at happiness.
Kendig is a powerful writer as she takes us on the journey of healing and forgiveness. A very satisfying ending leaves us yearning for the next book in the series.
This series, while edgier and more current, is reminiscent of Dee Henderson’s Uncommon Heroes series. If you love action packed suspense with a great romance, then you’re going to love this book!
I received this book for review from the publisher.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
This degree has also given her a fabulous perspective on her characters and how to not only make them deeper, stronger, but to make them realistic and know how they'll respond to each situation. Her debut novel, Dead Reckoning released March 2010 from Abingdon Press. And her Discarded Heroes series began in July 2010 from Barbour with the first book entitled Nightshade.
This is the second book in the series.
