About the book:
His team. His mission. A mission that comes at the highest cost!
Captain Dean Watters keeps his mission and his team in the forefront of his laser-like focus. So when Dean’s mission and team are threatened, his Special Forces training kicks into high gear. Failing to stop hackers from stealing national security secrets from the military’s secure computers and networks isn’t an option.

Zahrah Zarrick is a missionary teacher to Afghan children in Mazar-e Sharif. And a target. When Zahrah is captured because of her expertise in quantum cryptology, compromising the U.S. military, Dean is forced to crack the lockbox around his heart—a move that might come at the highest cost.

My thoughts:

Raptor 6 was a great read! Packed with a ton of suspense and danger, there were several scenes that had me "on the edge" of my seat. 

The story starts with an intense first chapter and then the story jumps back in time 6 months (to show what led up to that event), so we don't get to find out what happens next until near the end of the book. It was an interesting beginning and definitely grabbed my attention, even though I'm not typically a huge fan of this type of opening.

I loved the characters and how believable the things that happened to them were (things were definitely not sugarcoated!). I couldn't help but feel for them and got teary-eyed during parts of the story...the things they went through were terrible!

I loved the banter between the Raptor team members - there were several times they (especially Hawk) had me laughing! I also liked how some characters from previous Ronie Kendig novels were in Raptor 6. 

The ending to Raptor 6 was great and makes me eager to read the next book in this series! I definitely recommend this book to fans of military thrillers with some inspirational elements. Very good read!
