Hi, y’all!!! I’m Ronie Kendig, the author of Rapid-Fire Fiction, stories strongly laced with paramilitary/military action, as well as gloriously fun epic space operas, too! Regardless of the genre, my stories have loads of action and thrills! As I’ve long said: Writing Is My Therapy. 😀

You can learn more about me and all my books here on my website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Across social media, I’m promoting the upcoming launch of my newest novel, SOUL RAGING (Book of the Wars #3), which releases from Bethany House publishers on November 3rd.

Writing A Fallen Hero

One of the hardest things I’ve ever written is a hero who starts out honorable, but after some bad choices, finds himself in a very dark place. In SOUL RAGING, the conclusion to the Book of the Wars series, Leif Metcalfe is desperate for answers and feels betrayed by those he trusted. When it seems the enemy is more trustworthy than those he calls “friends,” what choice is he left with but to join the enemy?

The hardest thing about writing Leif’s journey was knowing where he needed to go, how turbulent and messy the days/scenes ahead would be, before he found freedom and peace. I knew it wouldn’t be a “fun” ride, but I knew he was a necessary ride for a character who found himself embroiled in chaos. This made me really consider whether or not I wanted to write such an emotionally heavy story, but ultimately, I felt convicted about wanting to write an ‘easy’ arc and/or story.


We all make mistakes, some bigger than  others, some smaller—and so does Leif. But those mistakes are as much a part of our journeys as are the correct choices. Rapid-Fire Fiction readers know that I don’t shy away from hard, raw stories and/or characters, and I write those stories because of the audience I’m writing to—the broken, the ones who’ve made mistakes, yet who also have a deep-seated desired to do right … just like me. It’s in those stories that I find the greatest victory and joy, both in writing and reading!


Sometimes, the only hope is the enemy.

Leif Metcalfe is done waiting for answers and seizes control, a move that comes with a high price and a deadly risk: teaming up with the enemy. He can only hope that what he uncovers will heal the wounds he’s inflicted on those he loves.

Iskra Todorova believes Leif is on a collision course with death and knows firsthand the irrevocable cost of that path to the soul. While trying to protect her daughter and intervene with Leif, Iskra is forced to set her sights on the man behind the evil organization ArC–Ciro Veratti.

Torn apart by injuries and opposing views on how to handle Leif’s act of treachery, team Reaper hunts one of their own. The only thing they agree on is not stopping but starting the final battle prophesied in the Book of the Wars.
