The book I've chosen for this week's WoW post is by an author who is new to me! I've never read any of her books but her upcoming Discarded Heroes series looks incredible! Here's a preview of book 1, Nightshade.
Nightshade (Discarded Heroes, Book 1)
by Ronie Kendig
From the author's website:
Soldier and hero, now he faces the biggest battle... the homefront.
After a tour of duty in a war-torn country, embattled former Navy SEAL Max Jacobs finds himself discarded and alienated from those he loves as he struggles with war-related PTSD. His wife, Sydney, files a restraining order against him, and a petition for divorce. Max is devastated.
Then a mysterious a man appears. He says he’s organizing a group that recycles veterans like Max. It’s a deep-six group known as Nightshade. With the chance to find purpose in life once again, Max is unable to resist the call of duty and signs on.
The team handles everything with precision and lethal skill—until they’re called upon to rescue a missionary family, and avoid a reporter hunting their identities. When the team effects the rescue, their paths collide with the reporter—Max’s wife. As they sneak through the rebel-infested jungle something about the missionary couple speaks to Max—and re-awakens the love for his wife.
Will Max yield his pride and anger? Can they escape the jungle before it’s too late?
