The Final Conflict Will Hinge on One of History's Most Dangerous Blades

Dismantled centuries ago, the sword of Goliath is still rumored to thirst for its enemies' blood. Cole "Tox" Russell wants only to put the dangers of his past behind him and begin his new life with Haven Cortes. First, though, he's called to complete a final mission: retrieve the sword and destroy the deadly Arrow & Flame Order.

The AFO, however, is determined to reunite the sword. Threatening the life of Ram and Tzivia's father, they jeopardize Ram's long-held and dangerous secret while demanding Tzivia locate the blade. With the Wraith team slowly being torn apart, things worsen when Mercy Maddox, a new operative, emerges with the stunning news that the artifact is tied to both Ram's secret and a string of unsolved serial murders.

Tox, Ram, and the others are forced to set aside fear and anger to target the true enemy. No matter the cost, Wraith must destroy the AFO . . . or join them in the flames. 


Ever heard of a book hangover? Well, expect such experience with Ronie Kendig's Thirst of Steel. As the third and final book in The Tox Files series, Thirst of Steel is intense and O SO GOOD! Action-filled, it will make all readers thirst for more of the author's books! 

Interesting and multi-faceted characters with a romance that touches. Yet it was the suspenseful plot that caught my attention from beginning to end. Thrilling and heartrending, Thirst of Steel takes you on a roller-coaster ride that may very well hit all your emotions. I personally doubt my review gives this book or series the justice it deserved, since I started this series with Thirst of Steel. Though I was able to catch on without being too lost, I do felt reading the previous books in the series in succession would be ideal. However, kudos to the author for still keeping and holding the attention of a new reader of her books.  Thirst of Steel stayed on my mind for quite a few days afterwards. So be prepared.
