Evan Smoak is the Nowhere Man. He rescues the helpless and the desperate. Only this time he's going to have to rescue himself, because he's been "captured, drugged and spirited off to a remote location. His captors think they have him trapped and helpless, but they don't know who they're dealing with--or that they've trapped themselves with one of the deadliest and most resourceful men on earth."
Another fun thrill ride with one of my new favorite characters. Full of action and suspense, it's a great sequel to Orphan X. Warning: there's a high body count in this one.
When someone close to Evan Smoak is killed, he's determined to hunt down the men responsible. Every last one of them. And he has the skills and the will to do it. But things get a little more complicated when he ends up with a sixteen-year-old girl in tow--a girl who's been orphan-trained just like him. A girl who needs his help and protection.
I think this is my favorite Orphan novel yet! If I was in trouble, I'd definitely want Evan Smoak on my side.
(Side note: these books are best read in order.)
EVAN SMOAK'S TEN COMMANDMENTS:
1. Assume nothing.
2. How you do anything is how you do everything.
3. Master your surroundings.
4. Never make it personal.
5. If you don't know what to do, do nothing.
6. Question orders.
7. One mission at a time.
8. Never kill a kid.
9. Always play offense.
10. Never let an innocent die.
This sounds like a great series. When I can get to the library again I'll see if they have the first one.ReplyDelete
I've been saying that a lot lately, too. Let's hope both our libraries reopen soon! :DDelete
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series! I love the way he operates with the phone calls and the pass-along recommendations. Nowhere Man was probably my least favorite, but Hell Bent is great and starts a new thread that I liked.ReplyDelete
Yeah, Nowhere Man is my least favorite of the three I've read so far. But I loved Hellbent! I'm excited to read the next one. :)Delete
I like the sound of this series. I'll have to add it to my TBR mountain. :DReplyDelete
I have one of those! ;DDelete
I've had the first one on my TBR forever. Might be time to finally give it a read!ReplyDelete
If you do, let me know what you think of it! :)Delete
This sounds a lot like the Will Robie series by David Baldacci. I love that series, so I'll check into this one. Glad you're enjoying it! :)ReplyDelete
It's taken my mind off the real world for awhile which is kind of nice. :DDelete
This sounds like a fantastic series...I love the concept. :DReplyDelete
And Evan Smoak is one of those characters to whom it is easy to get attached. :)Delete
Love those Ten Commandments haha! I need to try this series...ReplyDelete
I've been liking it a lot. :)Delete
These sound great!!ReplyDelete
I haven't read this series.ReplyDelete
Hi Lark, Sounds like a really good series and what makes a good series is usually the main character and Evan Smoak sounds like someone worth following from book to book. Probably best to begin with Orphan X to become aquainted with Evan's backstory.ReplyDelete
Definitely begin with Orphan X if you're going to give this series a try! :)Delete
I like the cover designs for the series. I can't remember if I've read anything by the author.ReplyDelete
He writes a good thriller. :)Delete
I don't think I've read anything by this author. Another new series to check out!ReplyDelete
These are the first books I've read by him. But I like the way he writes. :)Delete
This sounds like a fun series. I like Evan's rules. I already like him.ReplyDelete
Aren't they great rules? :DDelete
(I really like Evan, too.)
I think I have to give this series another try = Hell Bent with the girl sounds good!ReplyDelete
Hellbent is definitely my favorite so far, although I did really like the first one, Orphan X, too! :DDelete
Those sound like some pretty good rules to read by.ReplyDelete
:D They are kind of awesome rules, aren't they?Delete
I haven't read this author but these sound like good action-packed books. And, of course can't go wrong with his code!ReplyDelete
Hurwitz is fast becoming a favorite author! :)Delete
