Friday List #Top10FavoriteArtist

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.

The Ninth Orphan (The Orphan Trilogy #1)


byJames Morcan, Lance Morcan

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.

The Orphan Factory (The Orphan Trilogy #2)


byJames Morcan, Lance Morcan

 An epic, atmospheric story that begins with twenty three genetically superior orphans being groomed to become elite spies in Chicago’s Pedemont Orphanage and concludes with a political assassination deep in the Amazon jungle.

The Orphan Factory, a coming-of-age spy thriller novel, is book two in The Orphan Trilogy and a prequel to The Ninth Orphan. Go on another frenetic journey with the ninth-born orphan as he busts out of the clandestine orphanage he knew as home and goes on the run across America.

In the late 1970’s, in Chicago, Illinois, the secretive Omega Agency initiates the Pedemont Project – a radical experiment utilizing genetic engineering technologies – to create twenty three orphan babies with the plan to turn them into the world’s most effective assassins.

One of the prodigies will rebel: meet Number Nine, an orphan with a mind of his own.

In 1998, when Nine reaches adulthood and graduates with honors from the Pedemont Orphanage, he is already an adept of the deadly espionage arts. Ordered by his Omega masters to assassinate a survivor of the Jonestown tragedy in Guyana’s Amazon rainforest, Nine is forced to draw upon all of his advanced training just to stay alive.

“Looking for an adventure – suspense – conspiracy – action packed novel to read look no further. What a great read, there was never a dull moment in this story. It is a page turner and well written. This is a movie quality story.”

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.
