I received a copy of Talon by Ronie Kendig from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Air Force veteran Aspen Courtland wants her brother back—dead or alive. Instead she adopts his combat tracking team dog, Talon. But after the attack that separated dog and handler, Talon is afraid of his own shadow. Military Intelligence Operative Dane Markoski has spent his life running from the truth. Now it’s the only thing that can save him—and rescue Austin Courtland—if he dares to face the past. Dane and Aspen need each other to untangle the web of lies. . .and they both need Talon. But can Talon overcome his fear—or will he put everyone in danger?
This is the second book in the A Breed Apart series by Kendig. I read and enjoyed the first book in the series and this one was just as good. Both books have a glossary of terms/acronyms that are a little daunting. I'm not familiar with military terms and did have to refer to the glossary. Don't let the military terms deter you from reading these books. Kendig does a great job of building the characters and putting in twists that you don't see coming.
