reveting from the start, I could not stop listening but did not want to reach the end....

I hope this is not the last we hear from Orphan X...

I think this is my favourite story of the series, perhaps Joey will fill the shoes!!!

Fast and Action packed

I like this book. I tend to listed to authors such as Tom Wood and Greg Hurwitz. This book was interesting right from the start. I found it hard to stop listening including waking up early and listening. Was sorry when it ended but still enjoyed it immensely.
I can't wait for the next in the series.

It was believable and the primary character was not invincible so very believable. Good to see that whilst Tom was seriously impacted by the trauma of his childhood he was still a high functioning human with strong feelings and loyalty to his family, even though they were his adopted parents.. His loyalty and was demonstrated again at the end of the book and it is refreshing to see people who are principled and proud and not tempted by status and money.

As I said I liked this book.

A pleasant surprise

I downloaded this book not knowing what to expect but I had trouble putting it down.
A good believable storyline , expertly narrated. A book close to home highlighting the prejudice of people andvtge harsh conditions our country can display. The hero was vulnerable and grounded which added to the enjoyment.
Definately worth a listen. Enjoy!

I have become a big fan of Karen Rose and this book confirmed it. This story has many twists and surprises all built over what is a very depressing situation . For me the characters become real and I often rewind so I can hear it again.

I found the storyline to be complicated and believable, the human emotion is powerful and I found myself relating to it often. It is always nice to end on a positive and happy note.

I told my self that after book 3 I would revert to another author for at least one book but when the time came I opted for book 4 and very glad that I did. The recommendation can't come any higher than that.

If you want a good listen with powerful characters then this book, in fact the entire series, is for you. Do yourself a favour and have a listen. Enjoy!

The story is good and certainly something that many of us would consider seriously. Who could imagine the trouble that would follow a decision that we may all be tempted to make particularly when experiencing extremely hard times.

The storyline shows the best and worst of peoples personalities and that sometimes we are all inclined to bend the rules.

This was my first Karen Rose book and it was such a good listen that I purchased another one immediately.

What a great listen! The storyline was good, albeit a bit gruesome, and the characters were real and believable.

I found my emotions kicked in few times given the gravity of some of the events happening or had happened.

I found it difficult to turn this one off, just wanted to keep listening.


Karen Rose writes great books and I have just loaded another for what I expect will be another great listen.

gruesome, compelling and uplifting

This story has many facets, there was a lot going on. an excellent listen and one that I did not want to turn off.
Someone received their needed lesson, lives were saved, great courage and nerve displayed and committment and inherent goodwill prevailed. emotionally challenging and rewarding simultaneously.
Top listen in my opinion.

This is a great story portraying all his focus, capability and drive. Evan's emotions alluded to over the last few books are maturing almost beyond his control. This does not dampen his resolve to complete the mission commenced, revenge, which in itself is an emotion.

This is a book I did not want to turn off and found myself sitting in the carpark stealing a few extra listening moments rather than heading into the Office. I was so disappointed to reach the end but noted the potential for another edition with 2 Orphans working together again. Perhaps she will need to save Evan?

l enjoyed this book to the extent I would remain in the car, in the carpark under my office, for 5 or so minutes because I didn't want to stop the story.

There is no doubt Evan is clever, determined and lethal. Evan is also now displaying emotion. His internal struggle highlights his training, loyalty and committment. I hope there is another book very soon.
