Book Review: Into the Fire by Gregg Hurwitz

HOLY. COW.

X wants out. And he’s trying, so hard, to get there… Unfortunately, his latest Nowhere Man case keeps unfolding like an onion from hell, and as he races against his own body and clocks that keep resetting, the options in front of him keep shrinking. Of course, he’s Orphan X, so you know he’ll wrangle all the pieces together eventually, but there were several points in this one where I honestly didn’t see how – even with his mad skills and incredible supporting cast.

Seriously, I don’t know how Hurwitz manages to keep ramping up the action AND devising new and incredibly intricate plots for Evan Smoak to unravel, all while maintaining the integrity of the central theme of redemption and never lapsing into any issues of suspended disbelief or incredulity…

This is one of my favorite series and this is precisely why: the writing, pacing, characterization, and details are SPOT-ON. Everything Hurwitz puts in the story means something, even if you don’t realize what until the bitter end. Every detail about Orphan X makes sense and ties into every detail about the world he lives in (both willingly and unwillingly). It gives the stories an incredible depth and breadth that go beyond its typical genre fare, and really makes them stand out.

This one ended with a FABULOUS twist that I wouldn’t have guessed in a million reads. I cannot wait to see where Hurwitz is taking this one – it’s a mind-blowing addition to the series, particularly with the conclusion of the latest case and his developing relationships with Mia and Joey. Here’s hoping the next installment comes out exceptionally quickly! Into the Fire releases in the U.S. on January 28, 2020.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for both introducing me to his amazing series and providing my obligation-free review copies. If you’re interested, my previous reviews can be found here: Orphan X and The Nowhere Man, Hell Bent, Out of the Dark.
