    Evan Smoak series is totally binge worthy!

    Nowhere Man by Gregg Hurwitz is book two in the Evan Smoak series. This book could easily be read as a standalone, although I would suggest reading book one as well. Active members of the Orphan program nearly succeeded in assassinating Evan. After the confrontation, Evan resumes his undertaking of helping those unable to turn to anyone else. While tying up loose ends with a human trafficking ring, Evan is kidnapped. Most of Nowhere Man takes place while Evan is in his kidnapper's custody. What proceeds is an intricate game of cat and mouse where both men consistently underestimate each other. This conflict makes for suspenseful interactions that kept me eager for a resolution. I was honestly unsure how Evan would make it out of his situation. When the ending did come, it was quite epic and served as a turning point for Evan. I am surprised at how attached I have become to this character. The author is not only presenting a thrilling vigilante story. Evan is a vastly sympathetic character that the reader gets to know slowly through his adventures. I, of course, have already started the next book in the series. I can tell reaching the end will make for a bittersweet wait until more books come out. Nowhere Man was given to me by St Martin's Press through NetGalley for my honest opinion. I encourage all readers to come to their own conclusions.

    Fast-paced and Fascinating

    In this, the second book in the Orphan X series, Gregg Hurwitz again gives us a fast-paced story, with his fascinating main character, Evan Smoak, doing some soul-searching in between dishing out punishment to those who've earned it. Evan Smoak has transformed himself into the Nowhere Man, who uses the "particular set of skills" he learned in a rogue government program to privately help ordinary citizens who find themselves in extreme danger. All he asks in return is that they “pay it forward” by passing his phone number on to one person who needs his help. This time, though, he finds himself held captive by an extreme narcissist who wants to access his money (of which he has a considerable amount). Evan spends a fair amount of his captivity drugged up, and a fair bit wreaking havoc on his guards. At the same time, he's also being pursued by another orphan, who's been tasked with eliminating him. There's a lot of action, and once again the ending of this one left me ready to move on to the next one (Hellbent). Well done, Mr. Hurwitz, well done! Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press/Minotaur Books for providing a copy for an unbiased review.

    action and intrigue

    I am not usually a big fan of vigilante types of reads but for some reason this one caught my eye and I actually enjoyed it. It isn't one of those reads where the characters grab you because I mean like Jason Bourne these folks have no emotional genes so robotic because of what they do and X is that in spades. Watching/reading him processing how to interact with people or people in real life situations is almost painful with the level of immaturity, the type that comes over time with exposure. Then you catch him in action and his responses, the way the author writes them makes you feel like it's automatic, hence the robotic nature. It's a great read watching him go from being hand selected and trained and released which we get mostly through flashbacks. There's trouble brewing and they have made the mistake of drawing X into the mix. Well there's danger, action, intrigue and yup betrayal so tons to keep you entertained. I haven't read this author before but I am intrigued so I will be reading a little more of this series.

    Good Read

    I had to finish this book as soon as possible. Sleep interfered just once. Although it was well written, as I believe is usual for this author, this gripping tale was more of a “hill climb”, more “painful”, than the first in the series. So it is when you can’t help but empathize with the protagonist. I am a fan and, luckily, there is a third book on the market.
