3.5 out of 5 stars
The Lazarus Protocol has Herron jet setting all over the world in search of The Master (who he thought he’d already killed). He wants to put an end to the Enclave but The Master is seemingly the only one standing in his way.
I was hoping while reading the other two (which kind of just ended) that Vincent was going to wrap up book three with a neat little bow. Unfortunately, he didn’t. That’s not to say that this book or even this entire series hasn’t been damn entertaining, it’s just a little bit of a bummer. I assume that just means that we still have some more Herron waiting in the wings… maybe?
Lazarus was definitely the most action-packed book of the series to date. It had Herron almost lose out numerous times and there were a few times I thought “is Vincent really going to do that!?” but then only to prove me wrong. I do enjoy when a book has me so into it that I don’t know what’s going to happen next. The Herron series has felt that way from the beginning.
The fact that the trilogy now is lacking some sort of finality of the arc (or really of each story) I still wonder if there are more books waiting to come out. Vincent is an awesome writer and I hope that he’s able to devote some more pages to Herron if he ever decides to write a book 4.
Overall, some hits and some misses – a book and a series that I enjoyed but didn’t love to death. Not every book is going to get that distinction!
Tom Jordan nails it with his narration though. He definitely made these books jump off of the page!
