Cole Russell thought he was finally going to be able to move on, maybe even leave the “Tox” moniker behind. Until he and those close to him are again drawn into a race to stop a threat to innocent people.
Crown of Souls is the second book in The Tox Files, and like the first book, it is packed with action and suspense. Ronie Kendig has done another great job of writing a story that keeps you wanting to find out what happens next. The plot flows well, and the different events all fit together.
Even with all the action, the book is easy to follow and understand. Though the story is fiction and deals with supernatural elements, the characters and what they feel are believable. Authentic military terms are used, but are explained where necessary. All of these make for a great read,
In addition to being entertaining, there are moral and spiritual messages in it. Though as old as history itself, the concept of good vs evil is a main focus of the story. Doing what is right even when it would be easier to do something else is something Tox must face. He also starts to understand that he is neither unlovable nor unsavable. His walls that he put up to shield himself from needing others, and God, begin to crumble.
I would recommend Crown of Souls to anyone wanting a book with action, suspense, and a good message.
I received a free copy of the book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for this review, but that had no effect on my opinion.
