    The Chosen

    The worst has happened, someone thought it'd be a great marketing technique to compare this book to Steig Larsson's series The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Honestly, who wants to read a rip-off of the same thing? I was skeptical, but relief came when I realized I actually did enjoy this book. There are some similarities to Larsson's thrillers, but not a hijack of the bandwagon. Set in Buenos Aries, the search to locate The Chosen's various haven cult houses moves steadily and at a good pace. You won't have to wade through 600 pages of tiny print to get to the end. However, I felt there was enough description, action and background given to make this a feasibly believable story. It is incredible, but the building blocks are there, and everything is checked off and in place. Explanations are given, without lengthy pages of reasoning. I liked the get-to-the point approach and strong characters. My attachment to them was a bit lacking, but I did not read the first book and took that into consideration, placing the fault on myself, not the author. I'd recommend taking this book along on vacation or picking up when in the mood for a snatch and grab thriller. Not a deep-thinking mystery, but contains action and an interesting plot-line that will entertain and hold the readers interest to the final page.

    Excellent follow-up to The Informationist

    I read Taylor Stevens' first book, 'The Informationist,' on the heels of reading the Stieg Larsson trilogy and I can say in all honestly that I like them all equally. That being said, I thought 'The Innocent' is not quite as good as the first book but better by a mile than most thrillers being published today (including the regurgitated crap by such noted authors as James Patterson, Vince Flynn, Stuart Woods, Jack Higgins, Brad Taylor, etc..). I think Ms. Stevens has a long and lustrous writing career ahead of her and we all will benefit greatly from that. You go Taylor!

    The second Vanessa Michael Monroe novel is gripping, hard hittin

    The second Vanessa Michael Monroe novel is gripping, hard hitting fiction ... just the way I like it! Vanessa and crew do not disappoint as they head off to South America for a dangerous rescue of a child from a cult. I love this heroine because she's tough but human! Fast paced action and plenty of suspense! I am looking forward to the next one!

    I like Michael so much! I loved this book-maybe not quite as much as the Informationist but I am so looking forward to her next book. It really opened my eyes about cults and how they operate. But the story and characters are riveting.

    Taylor Stevens does it again!!!!

    Thoroughly enjoyed reading another Vanessa Michael Munroe book. You don't have to read the first book - The Informationist - as Taylor Stevens gives a very good background of the characters involved. Of course if you want to read a good book then definitely pick up The Informationist. Can't wait for the next one in the series.

    I read "The Informationist" & was interested enoug

    I read "The Informationist" & was interested enough to want to continue. This novel was even better.

    Michael Vanessa Munroe becomes her own person here; I forgot all about Dragon Tattoos while completely immersed in this taut novel. Could not put it down and read it in a single day -- it's that good. It's an exciting thriller, a love story (actually, a couple of love stories) and even a bit of travelogue, all set in dazzling South America. The characters are well-developed, though it takes time to do so as Munroe slowly pieces together the background of their lives. It was nice to get to further know previous characters and meet new ones.

    Ms. Stevens' own background reaches deep into this novel. It's worth googling an interview or write-up on her either before or (as I did) after the read and be even more impressed with this work.

    Good read.

    I liked Taylor Stevens first book and I like this one even more. Vanessa/Michael continues to present as a believable and interesting character.

    Killing Machine

    In reviewing the debut novel featuring Vanessa Michael Munroe, “The Informationist,” I pointed out that ordinarily I react poorly to super-heroes, and called her sort of a bionic woman. However, in that case I set aside my prejudices and looked upon the character favorably. Not so this time. In this sequel, Munroe is considerably less appealing, but no less destructive as an assassin and action figure.

    The plot is relatively simple, built around a kidnapped child hidden away for eight years in various cult sites, now located in Argentina, subjected to sexual abuse. Munroe is asked by her best friend to rescue the child, now thirteen, and she agrees, in part out of obligation and also to give her something to occupy herself to escape her own demons. It seems that she suffers violent nightmares recounting her past murders.

    Certainly the novel is as well-written as the first in the series, and the topic obviously is worthwhile. Somehow, however, the overwhelming detail tends to drag, and this reader, at least, found the mind often wandering. The information about the workings and philosophy of the cult seemed superficial, though the rescue of the girl was vivid. I felt, however, that the conclusion was a little too simplified to be realistic, sort of “Oh yeah, let’s end this now.” But on the whole, it is not a bad read, and is, despite the aforementioned reservations, recommended.

    Enjoyable read

    I like the series and the main character - Michael. Storylines are very topical, fast-paced with great supporting characters. Overall well-written books - I can't wait for the next one.

    FINALLY! Vanessa Michael Munroe returns!!

    My personal judgment of and satisfaction from a good book comes not from the technical aspects of the writing (plot, character, construction, etc.) but from whether or not I become immersed in the story and lose myself in it. I realize the execution of those technical aspects are the basic building blocks required for a good story but I don't focus on them when reading a book and, quite frankly, don't want to - I want the immersion and escape that the author brings with all the artistic talent that goes beyond the technical aspects of writing. And that most certainly happens with The Innocent as it did when I read The Informationist, Ms. Stevens' first book. Of all that I read in 2010, Stevens' first book, The Informationist, was the best chance find of the year. Eagerly awaiting The Innocent for months now, it was definitely well worth the wait. I wasn't sure what to expect when I heard the pacing would be a bit different because I was ready for another edge-of-your-seat tale like the first. The pacing is different and the way the author allows Munroe to be more introspective about her oh so dangerous skills is different from the first book, BUT that's not a negative in any way - we're treated to Munroe coming to a good realization about herself. About two thirds of the way through the book, I found myself thinking that things were going too well and that's right when the wheels came off for Munroe and then it was an edge-of-your-seat pace and my adrenaline was flowing. Let me reassure you that the first two thirds of the book is not boring - it was a slow burn of suspense until the flames erupted. I was immersed from start to finish. I won't recap the plot as that's best done on the book jacket, but I continue to thoroughly enjoy getting to know Vanessa Michael Munroe. She is a complex character that is not easily described in a few words but here are just a few: calm, cool, calculating, introspective, and a strategic planner. But when the proverbial doodoo hits the fan, she's also an instinctual fighter and brilliant tactician that uses knives - lots of knives. And physical speed, lightning physical speed. Oh, she's also a polyglot and a master of disguise. And never touch her without permission - that never ends well. How did she acquire these abilities? Find out via the first book - you won't be disappointed. Some familiar characters we came to know in The Informationist return for The Innocent and I was pleased to see that. They're characters you can't help but like. Steven's has the ability to write characters you like and can identify with yet leaves enough mystery about them so you're left wanting to know more and hoping to see them again. Oh, and the characters you're not supposed to like? She's equally adept at writing those - I could NOT wait for Munroe to take care of business on a key antagonist in this book. And when she did, it was satisfying. Most satisfying. Lastly, I want to mention another aspect of Stevens writing that is so enjoyable - the exotic geography of her stories. It is so engaging and educational (for me - I'm not well-travelled). The geography just comes alive and really gives you a sense of being there in person. Bottom line? You'll be immersed in a great story with a great heroine who delivers satisfaction and leaves you wanting more. I hope the Munroe series is around for a long time because it deserves to be. The only downside is another long wait for the next in the series.

    Another great Vanessa Michael Munroe read!

    Stevens has another hit on her hands with this 2nd Munroe thriller/adventure. She lets us peek into more of Munroe's past as she shows us how Munroe helps locate an abducted child held in a South American cult. Munroe's demons and skills provide thrills; cult details provide the creepy in this novel that's hard to put down.
