This second book in the Orphan series is a prequel telling us about the program and its aims. The book opens with the births of the orphans, then jumps forward ten years to a point where they are now in training. The conflict between Nine and Seventeen started early.

Nine has established a sanctuary of sorts for himself and somehow manages to fall in love with the girl next door. This unrequited relationship drives him to attempt an escape.

I found this book to be even better than the first. The escapades of Nine as a new teenager, away from the structure of the orphanage, are interesting and completely believable.

Normally I always recommend reading a series in the order they were written. If for no other reason than the author may have (intentionally or inadvertently) included some foreknowledge of events. But in the case of the Orphan Trilogy 1 and 2, I'm not sure that I wouldn't recommend reversing the order. But either way, this is a very enjoyable read, and as I said, I thought it better than the first.

The only point where the energy went out was the end, where the Epilogue almost rushed to bring you up to speed for where the first book starts. I thought the Epilogue could have been omitted with no ill effects.

I read the Kindle Edition (Sterling Gate Books, July 2012, 385p) provided by the authors for review.

The Orphan Factory by James and Lance Morcan is the compelling and exciting conspiracy and mystery packed prequel to The Ninth Orphan.
We journey with Nine, from his highly secret, genetically engineered birth, watch his character unfold as he is programmed and becomes adept and skilled in many areas of espionage and spying, and then rebels and escapes the orphanage and makes his bid for freedom.
I loved getting to know more about Nine and his early years, his rivalry with 17 and interaction with other orphans, his self discovery and his ability to survive in a dangerous and deadly world.
I am now looking forward to reading the third and final novel in this thrilling trilogy.

The first book in The Orphan Trilogy was great, but this one's better. In fact, it's easily one of the best books I've read in the thriller-type genre. From the first page to the last, I was utterly absorbed in this ambitious story of twenty three genetically super-enhanced orphan children, being prepared for a life of conspiratorial espionage at the top levels that go beyond the law. This work simply doesn't put a foot wrong.

Perhaps surprisingly, this feels like a coming of age book more than anything else, as we follow Nine, the main protagonist, from childhood to the beginnings of adulthood; but it's a coming of age book of a boy living in a dark, extreme, secret, isolated world- and that makes all the difference.
There's so much depth to all the characters and their interactions, the various geographical locations and settings like the orphanage are all vibrant and expertly detailed, and the structure and story of the book weaves together in a fascinating, page turning frenzy which builds and builds throughout. I was just as captivated by such everyday characters like the homeless Ace or by the scenarios of teenage first love yearnings, as I was by the gripping action finale chapters in Guyana.
I don't want to give away too much of what actually occurs in this tale, as that's for the reader to discover- I want you to experience the spellbinding freshness of this book for yourself.

I'm not hugely into the thriller category, but this book transcends the genre. It's simply a damn great read, regardless of classification. And I already can't wait to read the last instalment in this brilliant trilogy.

Harry Whitewolf, author of Route Number 11 and The Road To Purification.

In some ways the Orphan Trilogy is a chilling reminder of the Lebensborn eugenics program in Nazi Germany which set out to produce the perfect Aryan children who would grow up to become world leaders.
This is the second book in the Trilogy where we learn a little background of the orphans and the aims of the covert Omega Agency `s program.
Lance and James Morcan are very talented writers with a flair for the dramatic and could it be, a vision of this world's future. I'm not going to cover the political aspirations of the rich and famous or governments in this review, nor am I going to delve into the plot as other reviewers have produced very good outlines.
What sets this book apart from the usual action novels about future world conspiracies with their chilling robotic assassins, is the sympathetic character of Nine, the alpha assassin of the group. Depersonalised from birth, The Orphans are, devoid of emotions, yet from somewhere deep inside his dna, a yearning arises in Nine. He seeks emotional involvement with other humans, which is frowned upon by the Agency he works for. This introduces a human touch, along with some ironic humor which saves the book from being taking itself too serious as so many of this genre tend to. A bit of romantic interest never hurts a good story and of course we all want to know where this will take Luke as he breaks free from the group and is hunted down
Bring on the third book guys, I'm ready for it.
I'm expecting to see the Orphan Trilogy books rank highly and am sure they will become a very successful and beloved series.
