Carved Into A Nightmare
Crown Of Souls by Ronie Kendig is an epic Christian adventure suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat. Book two in the Tox Files continues the action – ancient artefacts and myths collide with modern warfare.
The novel explores the battle against evil, warning there is “a fine line between fighting evil and becoming it.” We need to be aware that evil does exist in this world and we need to overcome evil with good.
Trust is a major theme. A band of brothers, a fighting unit has to trust that each other have their backs. Likewise God can be trusted. At times there is nowhere else to turn but to God. “She shouldn’t worry – God would handle the fight.” Reminding the reader of the Biblical passage that tells us to stand still because the battle is the Lord’s.
Guilt is a powerful force. It can weigh us down. “He was trapped by his own guilt.” We need to deal with our guilt, confess it to God, receive His forgiveness and move on with our lives.
The novel portrays the downfall of a character. A mission that went belly up results in revenge killings. There is a fine line between duty and going rogue. It is not a line we want to cross or there will be devastating consequences.
Sometimes we think we do not deserve love. That our past excludes us from love. The good news is that God’s grace covers us all. We are all worthy of second chances and love.
The Tox Files series is marvellous. It totally engulfs the reader in the epic action. I am highly enjoying it and hoping for more books to follow.
