The Last Orphan

The Last Orphan

Since Evan Smoak was a child he was trained as an assassin for the government as part of the Orphan Program. When Evan broke off with the group he had a lot of secerets that the government would do anything to keep quiet even if it meant killing him. Evan made himself the nowhere man helping those who were in need. Unfortunatley that got Evan write back under the government’s radar. The president offers Evan a deal, kill a rich, powerful man who she claims is too dangerous to live and Evan will live. Now Evan has to decide what’s more important his principles or his life. I meant to read this book a long way back before it came out but life and more early books kept coming. This is my first time reading anything by Gregg Hurwitz.


Pros & Cons

I like that while this book is part of a series you can read it as a standalone. Evan is a man struggling on doing the right thing. I did like the flashbacks of his childhood and how he became an assassin in the first place. There are parts that are over the top but books like these normally are. I think I would enjoy watching stuff like this more than I would read them.



Overall if you’re into spy novels, check it out. You can read them as a standalone even if they’re part of a series. I might check out some of these in the future. Thank you Kaitlyn Kennedy for the chance to read it and I’m sorry it took me a bit to read and review it.
