Oh where to begin describing the amazing-ness that was this book?! Even though this is a hefty book (it was originally released in 5 installments) it had me hooked from page one and I hated putting it down. There are quite a few characters but I didn't really have any trouble keeping them straight and the narrative slipped seamlessly through their various points of view. I loved all the members of Zulu though they could be frustrating at times for various reasons. I admired how much they all car ...more

Originally published serially, Operation Zulu Redemption is a 5-part mini-series that would really make a great TV show. Full of action and danger, it's really hard to put down! I really enjoyed the TV-series-like concept of "episodes" and putting them together into a "season." As with TV shows, there's significant potential for a second season, with many relationships and mysteries that could be explored further.

The women all had believable side effects from the trauma of their sabotaged Op, as

Hooah!! Get ready for an intense thrilling ride through the characters of Zulu. Ms. Kendig has a way of bringing characters to life in all of her novels but this one had me emotionally attached from page one. I couldn't stop turning the pages as I live vicariously through the women of Zulu. There are plenty of military themed books out there but none with women leading the charge!

The plot is intricate and deep revealing plot twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very last page.

Zulu is the first all-female special forces covert operations team. Five years ago, they were tapped for a mission to prevent villains from receiving a shipment of weapons that were to be destroyed. Even though the warehouse the arms were in was empty an hour before it was to blow, when it exploded, it was holding 22 women and orphans. Their handler was put through formal inquiries, but made sure the women were safe and had all-new identities. So, why are they now being hunted and assassinated?

Really enjoyed this book. Five years ago six soldiers made history as the first all female special forces team names Zulu. Due to a tragic mistake the soldiers have been in hiding while their team leader tries to investigate and figure out what happened and why. Now someone is trageting the team. Who is killing off the girls and why? Will Trace & Boone be able to protect the other women? Will they be able to find what happened five years ago and who is behind it all?
There is alot of action in t

I read the series in 2014 when a section came out each week.
6 years later it was still worth the read combined. We won't ask why no more has been written? I just hope hard.
Most of the story came back to me. It is amazing when your circumstances change over time that reading again can have a different feel. I guess that is when we work out if we are stuck in a season too long. I have read Ronie's military books and like them and put them in the local library. Waiting for November for her next re

INSANITY!!! I am at a loss for words, in a good way of course! I absolutely loved this series. I love all of the books I have read by Kendig. But I do have to admit I felt like there were a few things that were left hanging. It really left me wanting for more and I wish she had continued this with at least another series. It is just so freaking good! Ugh!

This book was amazing! Loved the characters, plot, and action! I didn’t want it to end. I highly recommend it

As always, Ronie Kendig has written a great tale with powerful, hard-to-forget characters. I so badly hope we see a season 2 somewhere down the line. I need more!

There is no one better than Ronie Kendig in writing military suspense! Even though this book has some thickness to it, it ended all too soon for me. There is action galore that will keep your heart elevated enough you can skip the gym while reading. There's also nice doses of romance and a gamut of other emotions that will leave you gasping for breath by the time you finish it. Of course, now that I have finished it, I want to go back and start all over again. All story lines are not wrapped up, ...more

Operation Zulu is a fast paced, military thriller with so many twists and turns you might not see them all till the very end!

It is a historic day when the first all-female special ops team gets their initial assignment. The only problem is they are set up to fail from the very beginning. After the horrible incident that leaves them all fearing for their lives, they vanish with new identities. However, they are not the only ones haunted by their past. Their leader and handlers have to deal with t

I enjoyed this, even though thoughout the "season" it had the ridiculous scenario of tough women often triumphing over muscular men trained in fighting and even though I don't believe that women should be in combat. Women being as tough and as strong as a man is typical of romantic suspense, though, and I just reminded myself that since it's fiction, it can include that fantasy in order to have a suspenseful, action-packed story. This story was full of action and was very suspenseful, and there ...more

An INCREDIBLE series!! OPERATION ZULU REDEMPTION was fast-paced, seat-of-you-pants fiction at its best. I read the 5 installment series (I didn’t realize I could buy it as one book) in a week’s time. Granted, I had the time on my hands because my family and I had been evacuated due to the Rough Fire in California, but it served as a great distraction while my everyday life was put on hold.

Operation Zulu starts with a roar, bogs down in the middle, and ends with a flourish that is more style than substance. I had to push myself to finish it, which is disappointing, because I have found most Kendig novels better written.

I think the original release format may be partly to blame - issuing the story in short novellas instead of as a single volume. I suspect if the author had stuck to the traditional format, the book would have been significantly shorter, less susceptible to meaningl

What an action-packed read! The story had a lot of twists, turns, and unknowns. It’s one of those books where you just have to know what happens next. I had bought all of the Kindle serial ebooks when they came out but I love this paperback version. Initially, there are a lot of names to remember (the team members as well as their aliases) so I liked that I could flip back and forth to the character list. There was a love triangle--which I am not a fan of---but I thought it was done well. Even t ...more

I had read portions of this before, but it was great to finally get it all together and read the entire thing. It is a great treatment of an all-female group of military specialists. They face difficult challenges in various countries. Great story!

This was so action packed. I enjoyed this series. There were a few small things that I wasn't sure added up for me but otherwise this was the usual great story that I count on from her. Also know that this is the complete set of novellas and you don't have to buy the others. ...more

Action-packed, riveting military suspense with an amazing team of female operatives. Romance kicks in with some leading males roles, too. Travel around the world makes it a great adventure mystery. I LOVED THIS SEASON and hope for more to the story! 5 stars...Ronie always delivers!

I read this book when it came out in serialized form the summer of 2014. I'm very excited that readers can now order it in paperback. Ronie Kendig writes awesome action packed novels.
