How an assassin found a family
Hellbent (Evan Smoak) - Gregg Hurwitz

Evan Smoak is a former government trained assassin. A program that recruit orphans to work. They are all given a code name started with "Orphan". Evan is Orphan X. 

 

His handler bond with him and trained him to remain human.

 

Once he run away from this black-op, he wanted to use this skill to help other people in desperate situation that could use his skill set. 


Call  1-855-2- NOWHERE and he would help you.  

 

He received a call from Jack. That lead to a package. 

 

Now he is on the run with the package. 

 

More people try to kill him while he still tried to take on case. 

 

It works well together as the character developments allow enough details into the mind of a man who has a past still not letting him go yet. He wants to move forward but his past is a bit too dangerous and unpredictable to draw someone new into his life.

 

In this book we learned about the 10 commandments from Jack. Don't let an innocent dies is one of them. Also, not killing children.

 

While reading this, Evan drink vodka. I drink vodka but I haven't try any of the expensive one that the book mentioned. Would like to try Glass Kona with coffee infusion. 

 

The moving forward part is hard, especially for someone who killed before. If he is not being hunted, he should at least see a therapist and see if he is suffering PTSD. 

 

The solitude. The straight discipline. The anxiety of social interaction. All very endearing. The responsibility forced upon him is texting as well. 


The story moved along quite smoothly in a fast pace. But leave enough space for Evan self reflection and character development. 

 

Like it a lot. High recommended.

Reading progress update: I've read 155 out of 416 pages.
Hellbent (Evan Smoak) - Gregg Hurwitz

Evan heard the call from Jack, calling for help.

 

And it forced him to come out of his routine and find Jack.

 

Now Jack has left him a package. 

 

Evan is continued being hunted.

 

The plot developing nicely. With some plots twists revealed along the way. 

 

The dinner scene reminds me of Logan.

Book Review: Security Breach By Evan Grace
Security Breach - Evan Grace

 

This was an overall good story, but it got off to a rocky start for me. For the first few chapters, I felt like I was missing a chunk of backstory for certain details to make sense. After everything was cleared up, the story moved at a steady pace. The writing style was great and pulled me into the story.

 

If you follow my reviews you'll know that I'm not a big fan of children and pregnancies in novels. I picked this novel up willingly because there are exceptions to every "rule". Surprisingly that detail didn't bother me because I knew what I was walking into. Though I can't say I particularly liked the heroine. She started off like an interesting character who had just enough past issues to be believable, but her level of impulsive decisions after something crucial would happen ruined everything for me. I'd like to point out how pregnancy hormones can't be blamed for her impulsive decisions. I can understand to a degree, but not to the degree that was represented in the book.

 

Reese was surprisingly standup guy. I loved how he dealt with knowing he had gotten her pregnant. He took responsibility for his actions as soon as he found out and was willing to do everything to participate in the child's life while helping her out in the meantime. He acted like a responsible adult should act and for that, he earned my respect. The age difference plays a small part in the relationship and it didn't bother me from the beginning. They were both consenting adults who were taking responsibility for their actions.

 

The conclusion to the mystery was dull. According to my notes, I predicted who the culprit was within the first 6 chapters of the book. The motivation for the whole situation proved to be really dumb and concluded way too easily. I'd also like to point out how gullible and naive the heroine proved to be. Who in their right mind (pregnancy aside), accepts an open drink that you never ordered/expected from a stranger while knowing someone is out to get you? With the way the world is, isn't this common sense by now?

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!
