Coneixement comú



Last Chance by Gregg Hurwitz is the sequel to his YA thriller The Rains. We continue to follow the Rain Brothers as they fight against an alien invasion that has overtaken the world. They are not just up against the insect like aliens, most people over the age of eighteen have been turned into mindless zombies controlled by the space creatures. Now a new species of beings has been developed and hatched, and these creatures are extremely strong and ferocious.

Chance and Patrick find out that not only are they immune to the spores that turn humans into zombie like creatures, they have also been genetically engineered to be the humans best chance at defeating these creatures and taking back Earth. Of course their saving of Earth depends on their staying alive long enough to complete their mission. The brothers, along with their girlfriend Alex, fight to stay alive although the clock is ticking down as Alex is approaching her eighteenth birthday. The action is non-stop and intense as this daring trio fight to save humanity.

Last Chance is aimed at the YA market and as such there were some aspects that I felt were not needed, but the author provides a good combination of horror, action, teen romance, humor and gross-out ick that I am sure would appeal to the younger set. Fast-paced, exciting and very predictable.

Review of Uncorrected Digital Galley

After a jolting, execrable meeting with his birth father, Evan Smoak vanishes. Joey manages to track him down, but Evan is shaken and uncertain. Advised to “start small,” he goes in search of a missing dog. [It turns out that the dog, Loco, belongs to his half-brother’s daughter, Sofia.]

But the dog hunt leads to a murdered man, an assassin seemingly with skills equal to his own, and rival billionaires using advanced artificial intelligence to manipulate people and open up markets for their respective companies. The assassin, Karissa Lopatina, is determined to eliminate her victim’s daughter [who saw her face] and Evan.

Add Hugh, Lorilee, and the others in the Castle Heights condo building . . . is it more than the Nowhere Man can handle?


Orphan X returns in this, the ninth adventure in the series [with sufficient backstory to orient readers new to the series]. Readers are pulled into the telling of the tale from the outset; strong characters and non-stop action keep the pages turning at lightning speed.

Over the course of the series, Evan has evolved; here readers will see the continuation of Evan’s character development as he struggles with relationships. And both Evan and Joey find themselves dealing with both emotion and vulnerability.
The unfolding story places a spotlight on Joey as she becomes an integral part in the telling of this tale; readers will enjoy seeing her take center stage in much of the narrative.

Thought-provoking and Filled with unexpected twists and turns, this narrative places a spotlight on the real-world issues of technology and artificial intelligence. This unputdownable installment of Evan’s story is a must-read, especially for fans of the series.

Highly recommended.

I received a free copy of this book from St. Martin’s Press, Minotaur Books and NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Hurwitz's Orphan X series books never disappoint. Well constructed stories, propulsive action, and just the right touch of humor throughout.
I've fallen behind though. I have three more to read to get up-to-date.

a predictable light romance/mystery. Treflee's husband is a spy and is gone too much so she wants a divorce & is holding a secret. She & her cousin, who was supposed to get married, go on vacation to Hawaii & Tref's husband is undercover & they reunite as he tries to win her back.. Thin plot & same old same old catty woman, playing hard to get, & whining about the past.
