Editorial Reviews

Review

★★★★★ "What makes The Ninth Orphan stand out from other thrillers is its intelligent handling of its themes. Like Kazuo Ishiguro's haunting novel, Never Let Me Go, The Ninth Orphan taps into our fascination with the possibilities of genetic selection, and the consequences it may bring. Throw in a pinch of romance and the suggestion of political shadow organizations that may or may not operate in the real world, and you have an exhilarating read that will keep the little grey cells ticking over long after you've reached the final page."
-The Flaneur Book Reviews UK

★★★★★ "The authors manage to weave political intrigue, espionage and eugenics into an exciting fabric of mystery and entertainment. The reader can't but believe that the novel may not be only a work of fiction."
-I.A. Wilhite, Ph.D.

A thoroughly enjoyable book, when the character of Isabelle is introduced the story takes off and I found I couldn't put the book down. Full of lots of twists and turns and no dull moments it left me hungry for more. I'm hanging out for the next two in the trilogy -can't wait! Would recommend it to anyone. If you were a fan of the Bourne movies, then this is for you!

I started this on a Sunday and completely shot my day. Non stop action, suspense, plots subplots and very well written. A mix of Bourne, Davinci Code, Manchurian Candidate with a hint of Salt, a dash of Bond, The Saint and stir in a heaping tablespoon of conspiracy and stir.
The story centers on Ophan Nine aka Sebastian, a product of genetic engineering of the mysterious Omega group. The "orphans" numbered in birth sequence, have been trained to become assasins using their superior intellect, linguistic ability, physical prowess and extraordinary disguise.
Number nine goes rogue. All hell breaks loose.
This is part of a trilogy: a prequel and sequel to be released this year. It won't be soon enough for me.

Mr. Morcan has written an excellent novel about a group of children that are raised in an orphanage run by the Omega Group. They are trained to be highly intelligent, master of disguises, and to kill on demand from Omega leaders. The orphans had no childhood as we know it. One orphan, who is different than the others wants out to have what others in the world have-freedom. Freedom to be who he really is and not a puppet for Omega. The orphans are called by numbers, which is the order of their births. Nine has a very dangerous journey to find that freedom and not sure whether he can actually acquire it. Very exciting reading and leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat as he goes through one adventure to another. This novel was a Goodreads.com First Reads.

I read this book WHY? I think it was because of the word orphan in the title. I really don't read this type of book but I am very glad I did!!!!
It was very fast paced and kept me thinking the whole time. I was never bored and at times I didn't want to put the book down.
It is a book everyone should read. Even if not what you normally read...........

I really enjoyed this book. The premise was unique, the characters were interesting and believable for the most part. There were a few parts of the book that didn't flow well - it seemed almost like the authors weren't quite sure how to get from one point to the next so they wrote an awkward 5 or 6 paragraphs to move the story to where they wanted it to go. Two things I was very appreciative of: 1. a character with a sexual fetish that could have morphed into explicit or erotic writing, but didn't (YaY!). and 2. there was very little swearing (which I feel often detracts from a book and almost never adds to a story). All in all, a very enjoyable read!

Format: Paperback
Nine, as he was called due to being the ninth born orphan, was raised by a secret organization that was far underground. He and many others were genetic experiments that were made to become secret killers that can blend in like a chameleon and never be noticed.
Nine wants out and wants to be a free man.
Isabelle ends up in the middle of it and it's all sue to her photography hobby and she took a photo of a disguised man.
Nine takes Isabelle as a hostage but not because he has a choice. He didn't want to kill her, he didn't want to leave her for the Omega (the secret organization). He knew that if the Omega got her, she wouldn't stand a chance and already knew to much.
On the run for his life, with Isabelle in tow, he's fighting to keep her safe and himself alive.

Will he keep Isabelle alive? Will he find his freedom?

If you enjoy an action-packed spy thriller, then "The Ninth Orphan" is the book for you.

Nine is one of the genetically enhanced orphans that was raised by a secret organiztion called Omega to be a trained killer. He is a master of disquise, highly intelligent and referred to only by his number. Nine is tired of being a pawn to be used by the Omega leaders and is determined to break free.

The author did a great job developing each cahracter. I can see Nine as a combination of Tom Cruise in "Mission Impossible" and Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. I enjoyed this story and look forward to the next installment.
