Review: Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig

About the book:
This Is the Way the World Ends. 

Four years after a tragic mission decimated his team, Cole "Tox" Russell has been disavowed by the United States. And that's fine--he just wants to be left alone. But when a dormant, centuries-old disease is unleashed, Tox is lured back into action.

Tox and his former Special Forces team regroup to work with FBI deception expert, Kasey Cortes, and fiery archaeologist, Tzivia Khalon, to search the globe for answers--and a cure. As the mission leads from one continent to another, it becomes clear they're not just fighting a plague but battling an ancient secret society whose true goals remain hidden.

With time running out and the threat for a global pandemic rising, Tox and his team realize their sole chance might be to reach back through centuries of silence to find the only answer that can save them all.

My thoughts:

I have mixed feelings about Conspiracy of Silence. Parts of the story were kind of hard to follow and, honestly, that made those scenes boring. Other parts were really good and had me eager to keep reading. 

I liked the characters and I think the next book will be really good because I know them all already. I didn't care so much for the archeological aspect in this story, it was just a little confusing to follow (at least to me). Also, I found the ending a bit abrupt.

All in all, even with the things I didn't like, this wasn't a bad story. I can see why so many others loved it and, if you enjoy this genre, you might too. Just be sure to read the prequel, The Warrior's Seal, first. I feel like one of the mistakes I made was not reading the prequel before starting this, as I feel like that would have helped me not be as confused.
