Review: Trinity: Military War Dog by Ronie Kendig

About the book:

 Trinity: Military War Dog by Ronie Kendig
A Breed Apart: Book 1
From Barbour Publishing

A year ago in Afghanistan, Green Beret Heath Daniel’s career was destroyed. Along with his faith. Now he and his military war dog, Trinity, train other dogs and their handlers. Though his passion is to be back in action, the medical discharge has forced Heath—and Trinity—to the sidelines. Military intelligence officer Darci Kintz is captured while secretly tracking the Taliban. Only one dog can handle the extreme conditions to save her. Trinity. Only one man can handle Trinity. Time is running out on the greatest—and most dangerous—mission of their lives.
My Review:

Trinity was a fast paced read full of action, twists and plenty edge of your seat moments. I had a hard time putting the book down as, just when I thought I’d found a place to stop, something exciting happened and I was hooked again.

The characters were by far the best part of the book. They were all very realistic and the way their voices were written felt natural. Two of my favorite characters turned out to be Timbrel (who will be getting her own book sometime soon, yay!) and Candyman, who was just funny. The real star of the book though, was Trinity, Heath’s MWD. She was a truly amazing animal with such a strong personality and so much love for Heath. She was a great reminder that our four legged soldiers are heroes as well as our men and women in uniform.

At the beginning I was confused by all the different characters and plot points that seemed to be introduced rather quickly but once I got everything figured out it was smooth sailing from there.

Trinity is the first book I’ve read by Ronie Kendig and I can’t wait to read some more! Look for Talon: Combat Tracking Team early next year. If you’re a fan of action and intrigue I would absolutely recommend this book.

*I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for my honest review.*


  1. My mother enjoys this author a lot but isn't fond of how many times the story jumps from place to place. I've read so many complimentary reviews and still haven't read any of them. Yet. :)

  2. Initially I got confused and that was one of the only problems I had with it. It was definitely better once I got into the swing of things. It was SUCH a good book though, I think I going to have to go ahead and start her other series! Word to the wise, there is a very helpful military glossary in the front that I didn't discover till I was about 75% done =)
