Prodigal Son by Gregg Andrew Hurwitz
I seem to be way behind where this series is concerned. When I saw it on NetGalley I thought the premise was interesting and I requested it not knowing that it would be the sixth book in the series. Do not worry I have already picked up book one and plan to work my way backward to learn all there is to know about Evan Smoak. I will say this reads well that you could read this and have no issue following the story. The cast of characters all seems to be dealing with deep-seated and often denied emotions brought on by abandonment and/or failure. Not knowing the full backstory made me wonder why Evan was left as an orphan, to begin with. Which you will get an answer by the end of the book which is really good. My favorite part of the story though is the weapons and the villains. The way that the drama unfolded made this enjoyable. I wish that some of the tech described was real. Not so that people could die. I just think that the science used to make the weapons described might make a difference in science and health care. I loved the attempts at normalcy from Evan and the people he chose to surround himself with.
Thank you, NetGalley for my arc of this book. I will be picking up more books from this author seeing as how I enjoyed this very much. The only reason this is getting a 4-star rating is that I want to read more of the series to get more of an understanding of the entire story.
