My Review: Operation Zulu Redemption: Overkill - The Beginning

Operation Zulu Redemption is a new serial novelization by Ronie Kendig!  Overkill - The Beginning is filled with her trademark fast paced suspense and engaging characters! 
They never should’ve existed. Now they don’t. In the aftermath of their first highly successful op, the first all-female special ops team, known as Zulu, discovered that innocent civilians—women and children—died at their hands. Zulu was set up to take the devastating fall. Fearing for their lives, the Zulu team vanished. With new identities and spread across the globe, they live in relative but isolated peace—yet still haunted by the past. Terrified of being discovered. Five years after that horrific night, they’ve begun to hope they might be safe and the tragedy forgotten. Until two of them are murdered.

Start the mission on July 4th with Operation Zulu Redemption: Overkill--The Beginning. This FREE episode drops you into the rapid-fire action where the women of Zulu are trying to figure out who is targeting them. Who really set Zulu up to take the fall years ago? Are they one and the same? Now the remaining members of Zulu have no choice but to regroup and stop their enemy--before it's too late. And Overkill is just the beginning...

My review: 5 stars
Excited to find out what happens next!
This is the first installment in Ronie Kendig’s new serial novelization, Operation Zulu Redemption. I wasn’t sure what to expect, since I’ve never read a serial novel before, but I’m a huge fan of Ronie’s books and was confident that whatever it ended up being, I would enjoy it. I’m very happy to say that I was right and I loved it!
“The Beginning” is a fitting title for this “episode,“ as we get a little bit of back story for each of the ladies and find out what happens that pulls them out of their new lives. I was a little surprised at how quickly I became attached to Team Zulu. Despite the fact that this episode is very short, I felt I knew the ladies rather well and was rooting for them from the very first pages. I was also very taken with Sam, David, Boone, and Trace, and am very interested to learn more about them in the coming episodes.
Though it confused me a little bit at first, I found I really enjoyed getting to see the story from several different points of view, including the man in charge and someone who seems to be a possible “villain” in the coming episodes. The writing, as always, was wonderful and I was quickly drawn into the story. The descriptions were great and I really appreciated having explanations of who is who and what the military terms and acronyms mean. I referred back to them several times until I got caught up on everything.
The one of things about Ronie’s books that I can always count on is that they are addicting. I reached the end of the episode and was trying to figure out what had happened! I felt like someone had handed me a really great, suspenseful book, let me read a couple chapters then took it back! I was upset for a couple minutes, then had to admire how she ended the episode. It was left in such a way that you won’t be able to resist reading the rest of the series, because you’ll be dying to know what happens to the characters. I can’t wait to find out what’s next for Team Zulu!
I highly recommend Operation Zulu if you enjoy military suspense!
I received a free copy from the publisher for my honest opinion, which I have given. I was not required to write a positive review and have not been compensated for it in any way. All opinions expressed are my own.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will consider reading Ronie's new series.  If you want to check it out and find out how great it is for yourself, Overkill is free for the KindleNookKobo, and probably any other ereaders you can think of.  Be forewarned though: you will most likely become addicted to her books!  :)
I hope you're having a wonderful day!
