In this novel, the second of the Discarded Heroes series, Kendig keeps up her high standard of page turning action.
One of the Nightshade team, Colton "Cowboy" Neeley is having severe flashbacks. At the same time he is becoming very interested in one of the sales clerks at a department store. Piper is attracted to him too. But like him, she has secrets and her life is in danger.
Nightshade takes on the task of a rescue in the Middle East and Piper is right in the middle of it. Colton might put the entire team in jeopardy when he has more flashbacks. And he is distracted by his feeling for Piper. Then the mission is taken up a notch when the team finds out that there is an immediate threat to the nation of Israel.
Kendig does a great job keeping the action going. She also shows the struggle Colton has with his faith in God and his struggle with the mission and his task to kill terrorists.
I am always fascinated when an author of one sex has a hero of the other. At times I wonder if Kendig has given Colton too much emotion and makes too much of his emotional struggles. Nonetheless, it is a good read for those who like military action type novels.
