Here we are, this is it, my final pick of the year. I have read many great books this year but this one stood out the most to me. It wasn’t just the story line, it was the over-all voice of the writer. The style was smooth and action packed with a good balance of showing and telling and will make a good role model of the style of writing I would like to develop in my own voice someday in the future. Kudos to the authors of this number one pick.
We are at the wire for the top of the top Friday Night Favorite Artist and I am ready to let you all know which book is the number one pick on my List of my Favorite Top Ten Artists…
“For the past year I have been reading a lot of new authors on my Kindle, so instead of picking my favorite of my favorite, I wanted to pick from the books I have read during this past year. This I had to give some thought to, since I have read a lot of really great books on my kindle. So here is my list of favorites.”

The Ninth Orphan (The Orphan Trilogy #1)
How do you catch a man who is never the same man twice?
That is the question posed in The Ninth Orphan, a top-rated international thriller novel…
An orphan grows up to become an assassin for a highly secretive organization. When he tries to break free and live a normal life, he is hunted by his mentor and father figure, and by a female orphan he spent his childhood with. On the run, the mysterious man’s life becomes entwined with his beautiful French-African hostage and a shocking past riddled with the darkest of conspiracies is revealed.
Fast-paced, totally fresh and original, filled with deep and complex characters, The Ninth Orphan is a controversial, high-octane thriller with an edge. Merging fact with fiction, it illuminates shadow organizations rumored to exist in the real world.
Tackling genetic selection, mind control, secret societies and a chase around the globe, The Ninth Orphan also has a poignant, romantic sub-plot. The story contains the kind of intimate character portraits usually associated with psychological novels.
Written by father-and-son writing team Lance & James Morcan (authors of The Orphan Factory and Fiji: A Novel), The Ninth Orphan is Book #1 in The Orphan Trilogy. The unique thriller series continues with the recent publication of Book #2, a prequel titled The Orphan Factory. The sequel and final book in the trilogy, The Orphan Uprising, will be published by Sterling Gate Books in 2013. A feature film adaptation of The Ninth Orphan is also currently being developed.
“Action packed – intense – gripping – edge of the seat
What a great book this was. Great plot – great story.
I can see this as a movie – James Bond (no Sebastian Hannar) that is.
After you read this book you will see why I picked it as my number one pick of the year.”
And if you haven’t read any of these books I have listed over the past few weeks, you really do need to check them out, they were all great books.
