Son of a Batch of Cookies! This is the best Ronie Kendig novel yet!

Wolfsbane (Discarded Heroes #3)Wolfsbane by Ronie Kendig

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In this third installment of the Discarded Heroes series, Canyon "Midas" Metcalfe keeps having flashbacks of that horrible day when it all went wrong. Why can't he seem to get it right? Why do men seem to be so stupid at times? It should have been a simple mission and he just had to blow it all.

Danielle has been trapped in the confines of a horrible beast for way too long. His tirades are intolerable and she has to get out. And she does...can she recoup from all the horrors of living like this for so long?

A courtroom makes all the difference. Imagine that! Will justice be served?

I have been waiting patiently anxiously biting my nails off screaming at the author, Ronie Kendig for months to get this book released!! I love her style of writing as she makes the characters seem SOOO incredibly real! I do believe this particular story of Canyon to be the most real yet. Some of my favorite scenes were the ones of the family get-togethers, just because it reminds me of certain people and how they act (I was waiting on a food fight...) and those in the thick of the battle (just because I like that kinda stuff!)I wanted to jump into this book so bad and escape reality for awhile. Yep, that's how good this story is! I was able to escape reality (you can't put this one down....I dare you to try it! It won't work!) for a few short hours to learn Canyon's story. It tore at my heart, ripped it at the seams, to the point that I had to stop reading long enough for a good therapeutic cry.

Kudos to Ronie for another fantastic adventure with the Discarded Heroes. I am even more anxious now for Firethorn (release date 2012) but at the same time, it is bittersweet. Firethorn will be the last book in the Discarded Heroes series and I look forward to a happy ending (*hint* *hint* Ronie!).

In the meantime, grab your Kindle (or other e-reader of choice), go to NetGalley and download this fantastically awesome book, and curl up in your favorite reading spot with some Kleenex nearby. When you finish (or if you need inspiration), look me up on Twitter (@Faithfulgirl) and we can talk about it! I had a great chat going on with Ronie and the fabulous Relz while reading this book. It made it all the more entertaining!

Many thanks to Ronie and Net Galley for providing the copy for me to read on my Kindle!
