Summary via Goodreads:
He was the perfect assassin. No name. No past. No remorse. Perfect, that is, until he began to ask questions and challenge his orders. Now The Program is worried that their valuable soldier has become a liability.
And so Boy Nobody is given a new mission. A test of sorts. A chance to prove his loyalty.
His objective: Take out Eugene Moore, the owner of an extremist military training camp for teenagers. It sounds like a simple task, but a previous operative couldn’t do it. He lost the mission and is presumed dead. Now Boy Nobody is confident he can finish the job. Quickly.
But when things go awry, Boy Nobody finds himself lost in a mission where nothing is as it seems: not The Program, his allegiances, nor the truth.
The riveting second book in Allen Zadoff’s Boy Nobody series delivers heart-pounding action and a shocking new twist that makes Boy Nobody question everything he has believed.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
The second book in the Unknown Assassin series pick ups not long after the first book ends. Boy nobody, now known as Daniel is sent on a mission to kill the head of an extremist military camp for teenagers.He is told very specifically not to go into the camp, but of course he finds his way into the camp.
I absolutely loved the first book in this series and this one was no different. In this book we are given a little deeper insight into Boy Nobody, including his real name. he is really starting to question everything he’s been told and everything he’s been taught to believe.
He is programmed, in a sense, to be like a robot, but now we are getting to see the human underneath. It’s interesting to read a character who always seems to know the right thing to say or do.
The action in this book was really good and kept me on the edge of my seat for a little while there. The story moves along beautifully, not too quick, not too slow. It is a really great addition to the series.
I enjoyed this book as much as I did the first one and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
