Book Review of Dark Horse (Orphan X, Bk 7)

Dark Horse (Orphan X, Bk 7)
robinmy avatar reviewed on + 2005 more book reviews

Evan Smoak has been busy rehabing his apartment after a bomb exploded. When his phone rings, he knows it is time to get back to work. The call is from Aragon Urrea, a Texas businessman who begs the Nowhere Man to help get his daughter back. Angelina Urrea was kidnapped by a rival drug cartel and taken to Mexico. Evan must infiltrate the cartel and save Angelina from their insane leader.

The seventh book in the series isn't as good as the rest. The first half of the book suffered from too much description. There were pages and pages describing Evan's upgraded apartment, Urrea's business, and the Cartel's compound. I didn't care. I wanted more story and less description. The story did pick up in the last quarter of the book. As usual, Evan takes on an Army as only he can. That part was very entertaining. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
