Through The Fog
Through the Fog - Michael C. Grumley

This book is a show of unprofessionalism on the psychiatrist's side. When a new patient walks in who has been having strange visions after a bike accident, she only very mildly tries to put him off helping her solve the case of her missing daughter. Very mildly, and she risks the patient's life because he is certainly not doing well during these episodes.

This aside, it was a quick and easy read which didn't require a lot of thinking to stay with the story, which is sometimes nice for a change. The first half I liked better, since the conclusion I thought was rather too hurried and it was all too neatly fitting.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

The Last Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney- Book #10
The Last Apprentice: Lure of the Dead (The Last Apprentice / Wardstone Chronicles, #10) - Joseph Delaney,Christopher Evan Welch

The Last Apprentice series is like my go-to audiobook series when I'm not sure what else I want to listen to next but I know the story will be good and the narrator will be good because it's always consistent. It also never has huge cliffhangers so I know I won't feel pressured to listen to the next book like "right now." I've been slowly making my way through the series for a long time now and I like it that way. 

 

In book 10, Tom is still trying to prepare to defeat the Fiend. They have his head, which has to be separate from his body or the Fiend can come back so Grimalkin has been trying to keep the head away from enemy hands until Tom can locate the third blade that he needs to defeat the Fiend once and for all. 

 

This wasn't one of my favorite books of the series just because it was more of a filler story I thought and I'm to the point where if they don't hurry up and kill the damn Fiend I'm going to find a way to do it myself.

Dear Evan Hansen by Scott Levenson, Justin Paul, and Benj Pasek
Dear Evan Hansen (TCG Edition) - Steven Levenson,Benj Pasek,Justin Paul

Whoops! I forgot to post about this when I read it. I wasn't sure if I was going to count it towards by goal or not, but I think it counts. 

 

I first listened to the (glorious) soundtrack of this musical and was so intrigued that I decided to read the script.

 

Having read this, it helped me understand the musical so much more and really served a gut-punch, even more so than the soundtrack. It's written beautifully. I'm not one to normally read plays, but I'm so glad I did this one, just in case I never get the chance to see it live. Perfection.

HellBent
Hellbent (Evan Smoak) - Gregg Hurwitz

Series: Orphan X #3

By: Greg Hurwitz

ISBN: 1250119170

Publisher:  Minotaur Books

Publication Date: 1/30/2018 

Format: Hardcover

My Rating: 5 Stars  

 

Evan Smoak, an unstoppable government assassin gone rogue returns in Gregg Hurwitz #1 international bestselling Orphan X series, HELLBENT – from revenge, bullets, and vodka his most emotional and personal yet; a riveting non-stop action thriller. 

Picking up from The Nowhere Man #2.0 Smoak is more than a legend. He is a man with skills, resources, and a personal mission to help those with nowhere else to turn. 

A dangerous past. Well-equipped and trained. Taken from a group home at twelve, Evan was raised and prepared as part of the Orphan Program. Evan was Orphan X. An expendable assassin who went where the U.S. Government would not and did what they could not.

Jack had fought for Evan to stay human even while teaching him to be a killer. He broke with the program, using everything he learned to disappear and reinvent himself as the Nowhere Man. Eight years ago he had gone rogue. 

He helped the desperate with no place to turn. People suffering at the hands of unrepentant and vicious abusers. Now every incoming call comes to 1.855.2-Nowhere. Then it emerged through the receiver of the RoamZone. 

He always answers: “Do you need my help?”

This time, the voice on the other end was familiar. Jack Johns. Jack was the one who had plucked Evan from foster home to the inside the Department of Defense. He was the only father he had ever know. If he was calling this line, he must be in mortal danger. Indicating he must be up against what other might consider world-destroying trouble. An emotional call. 

Hurwitz cranks up the intensity, with Van Sciver, using all the assets to take out both Evan (Orphan X) and the target he is trying to protect. 

His top priority is to stamp out wayward Orphans. Anyone who has retired. Anyone who had not made the cut. Anyone who had tested questionable for compliance. The only Orphan who had ever gone rogue. The best way is to go after his handler. 

Jack gives Evan a final mission. 

Would a long-buried secret from Jack’s past lead him to Van Sciver? Hurting Jack Johns would hurt Orphan X. The Commandments. A girl. Joey. The package. Can she help? A sixteen- year-old?

Evan is determined to put a bullet through Van Sciver’s skull after his beloved father figure dies. Their history stretched back to three decades to a boys’ home in East Baltimore. Van Sciver held the keys to the kingdom and Evan was the fugitive. 

“Jack had taught Evan that the hard part wasn’t being a killer. It was staying human. He was superb at the former. And growing proficient at the latter. “

A superbly created series. Highly entertaining! Fans will delight. Will there be another upcoming book in the series? We can only hope.
