This month, we're featuring a series of tweets from Ambassador Sarah; from receiving the ARC of Red War, to her initial response and her final review.
Ugh! My ARC copy is here for #RedWar, but it’s in the front office...which is closed! I can’t get it till tomorrow!! Is it frowned upon to break into an office to grab ones mail...asking for a friend. #MitchRappAmbassador #MitchRappIsBack #MitchWouldDoIt
It. Is. HERE!!!! Ran home during lunch to pick this baby up! Let the marathon reading begin! #RedWar #MitchRappIsBack
In waiting for all hell to break loose in #RedWar, I think I just read the funniest line I have ever read in a book! See folks, #MitchRapp novels can now be categorized as humor! (Not really, but still...) freaking hilarious! #MitchRappIsBack
Oh. My. Gosh. Just finished #RedWar! What an amazing read! It had such a ripped from the headlines feel, and felt like I was watching the top headlines. Be sure you guys order your copy by 9/25! #MitchRappIsBack
This month, we're cheating a bit by featuring a starred review by Publishers Weekly, "Kyle Mills' outstanding fourth entry in the late Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series...Mills is writing at the top of his game in this nail-biter."
So I finished Red War last night and I'm already having Mitch Rapp withdrawals! I absolutely loved it and can't believe how Kyle Mills has immersed himself into the Rapp world! Bravo! - Chris
These are not just books, these are part of my life now. Thank you so much Vince Flynn, Mitch Rapp is my greatest ally.. - Irina
This is my brother JB. About 10 years ago, he had to spend a month in the hospital due to Crohn's disease complications. That's when he read his first Vince Flynn book, and we've both been hooked ever since. Recently JB had to go back to the hospital to battle Crohn's again, but Vince Flynn once again helped him stay strong. - Tony
Going through some old pix and found this one of me and Vince at Kevin Barry's in Savannah, Ga after the book festival. I took my entire book collection of his novels down and as we talked about my old days of being an Army Ranger. I asked if he would like to go to Kevin Barry's for a pint afterwards to see the Hall of Heroes and he kindly accepted. It was awesome hanging out with him all night and getting to know him, learn about his family and his career. Great man and sadly missed.
My house flooded as a result of Hurricane Harvey. We have rebuilt the house, but lost several personal items, including my entire collection of Vince Flynn novels. I will replace them, but have a question. I had a signed copy of Act of Treason. Is there any chance there are signed copies available and if so, how could I obtain one?
Thank you, Elliot
The publisher sent Elliot a complete collection of Mitch Rapp books including a signed edition of Enemy Of The State.
Wanted to let Kyle know that I was one of those readers of Vince Flynn and the Mitch Rapp series who doubted that Kyle would be able to take over the series without a huge drop in quality and sense of real continuity. I was also one of those that was dead wrong! Kyle, you have done Vince proud with your writing of Mitch and his gang of friends and coworkers, while adding your own touch to the series and from book to book, making the series and characters your own. It was a huge job, and the fact that you have been able to pull it off is not lost on we devotee's of Vince and the great character he created.
Great job buddy!
Vince you have changed my life. You've inspired me. You've dug me out of such a dark place. You've taught me to face my demons. You are the best and will be remembered as such. I will watch American Assassin in your honor. Wish you were here for it and wish you were here for me to give thanks.
I am active duty Army and I have a soldier who is transitioning out of the service who is a huge fan of your books. He also recently received his associate degree. I was hoping to purchase a signed book as a going away/congratulatory gift for him. Do you know how/where I can purchase a signed book? - Keith
NOTE: Simon & Schuster sent Keith a free signed book.
I am a big fan of both Vince and Kyle and have read all the books. My son, Brian, and I patiently waited for American Assassin to come out on the big screen...AND we were not disappointed! Great movie - just like the books. Instead of a picture of me reading a book, I am submitting a picture of me next to the movie poster outside the movie theater in Wyomissing, PA.
G'day from "Down Under." I had the fortunate experience back in 2001 to be searching for some reading materials for a long weekend away with my wife for our wedding anniversary. I found the first two books of the Mitch Rapp series, Transfer Of Power and The Third Option. I don't think my wife liked Vince at all. Once I got my head stuck into the book I was gone for good! I had to be dragged off the lounge to go out for meals, I didn't want to sit in the spa and drink champagne with her (it would get the pages wet). The weekend was a dud for her; but for me, I was as happy as 10 happy things! I have read each of the Mitch Rapp books - many of them two or three times and it is always difficult waiting for the next installment. Please keep up the great work.
Kyle Mills has, much like Mitch Rapp, managed to perform what most would say was impossible in filling Vince Flynn's shoes. The way he has allowed the characters grow and change, all the while increasing the audacity of the plots is remarkable. 'Enemy of the State' was a phenomenal read, bringing us on an unexpected adventure, and giving us what I believe many of us have been hoping for ever since the return of Louis Gould - a team up of epic proportions. Assembling the dream team of assassins from Rapp's past was genious, and kept me on the edge of my seat as I worried about whether or not one of them would double cross Rapp. I have to say, this really could be my favorite book in the Mitch Rapp adventure.
I say all of this, in an effort to convey how thrilled I am with Kyle Mills. I sincerely hope he gets to keep the keys to the Mitch Rapp story, as I cannot wait to see what the future has in store. - Hunter
Thank you for selecting me as a Mitch Rapp Ambassador I received the advance copy of the Enemy of the State - My Husband will love this... he has read all of the books. The action is just like that of my father-in-law's real life in WWII (OSS). Thank You again. I can't wait for the movie. - Elisabeth
For the second consecutive year, I received my galley (advance copy) of Kyle Mills latest Mitch Rapp novel in mid-June. Once again, I opted to begin reading it on June19, the anniversary of Vince Flynn's tragic death. This latest novel takes us from the U.S. to Costa Rica, Europe, South Africa, North. Africa, and the Middle East.
There are, of course, many players from Mitch's past, including Joe Maslick, Steve Thompson, Stan Coleman, Marcus Dumond, Charlie Wicker, Mike Nash, Irene Kennedy, Grisha Azarov, Claudia Gould, Donatella Rahn, President Alexander and Joel Wilson.
Who would be an ally? Who would be an enemy? Who may be BOTH?
Once again, I'll use the same word to describe the literary style of both Kyle Mills and Vince Flynn: Seamless!
In The Survivor and Order to Kill, I cannot discern what VInce would have written versus what Kyle did write! If you're a Mitch Rapp fan, you will want to see how all of these far flung geographic locations and all of these past characters, plus some new ones, fit in the puzzle in Enemy of the State.
As a Mitch Rapp ambassador I was awarded an early copy of Enemy Of The State. The MItch Rapp ambassador program is amazing, and Mitch Rapp fans across the country want to be a part of it. The application process is easy, and ambassadors are still being chosen. Be sure to apply if you are a Rapp fanatic like I am.
After reading Enemy Of The State, I can honestly say that this continues the incredible run of books in the Mitch Rapp universe. Kyle Mills has done an outstanding job writing these books blending high octane action with an intelligent plot, that includes some humor at the perfect time. This book is highly entertaining, fast paced, and a thrill a minute! In fact, you should buy pre-order it because it is that good and you do not want to miss it.
Can't wait (for Enemy Of The State). Just finished Order To Kill. I have to say Kyle Mills has really captured Mitch Rapp and got him spot on. I've read all of the books and I was really worried but excited too when I heard the series would continue after Vince passed away BUT there was no need. They are just as good.- Phil B.
While traveling in Turkey this past week. I have read and reread all the books. Been my favorite author since my second trip in Iraq. Keep up the amazing work. Can't wait for the movie and can't wait for the next book!- SSG Michael Cunningham
I just finished listening to the latest book on tape (Order To Kill) while hiking in the mountains near Tucson. It was EXCELLENT.
I'm so glad that you are carrying on the baton from our beloved author Vince Flynn.
Your writing has captured Vinces' vision for the characters.
Thank you so much. I love your books!!
