I loved the Mitch Rapp series from the first book I read. The last one was good but could still tell it wasn't a Vince Flynn book. This one was really disappointing. The plot seemed to jump all over the place, and whereas all the other books had a clear tie to the Middle East, this one just seemed to be "ok we need to have a tie to the middle east so we'll say. this African terrorist got his information from the Saudis". No explanation as to how the Saudis were able to find a guy that nobody else could.
Irene wasn't true to character and neither was Mike. Anyone really believe he would have just turned on all his friends like that? And like other reviews have said it just ended abruptly. It was almost like the author got bored and just wanted to be done.
It feels a lot like the Tom Clany books- they were awesome for so long then just got long winded and stupid. These feel like they're going the same way. One more book and if we're not back up to par, I'm done. Although the ending of the book made it feel like we won't be seeing Mitch anymore.
Enemy at the Gates was the first Flynn/Mills book that I didn't like. It started out really good but a little over halfway to 2/3 through it turned to crap with every chapter becoming more predictable and feeling more and more rushed. The last third of the book felt either: rushed due to a deadline, ghost written by someone else, or Mills was distracted by something. As a long time reader who owns every Flynn and Mills book this one was no where near on the same level as previous stories and is the first book that felt like it was written 'to get a paycheck' rather than 'to tell an enjoyable story'. The "twist" at the end was complete BS and makes readers ignore and forget EVERYTHING from the previous 20 books dealing with a very important character and pulling Stan into the story for nostalgia was a sign of desperation by Mills and the publisher. Here's hoping the next one is better or I will not be purchasing, reading or recommending the series anymore. 🤷🏻♂️ If this is the junk Mills is going to be pumping out from now on under Vince's name then I will just save my money to spend on finding new up and coming authors like Bradley Wright.
Overall, I've been happy with the story lines & appreciated the job Mr. Mills has done after taking over the helm following Vince Flynn's death, but I can't say that about Enemy at the Gates. The first 2/3 of the book were decent, although not as believable as past storylines he's presented. But the ending felt like Mr. Mills had a deadline to meet, gave up on a thoughtful, true-to-Mitch-Rapp-verse plot, & chose a quick & dirty ending that does not meet the high standards we fans expect. In fact, it reminds me of the first Kyle Mills book I read, "Fade", which I absolutely hated. I'm so upset over how Enemy at the Gates progressed & am now afraid to even try the next book in the Mitch Rapp series. If you are a true, Mitch Rapp fan...my advice would be to stop reading at book 19. This one is not worth your time.
Preface this review with I have been a huge Vince Flynn fan ever since the Mitch Rapp series began, I have all the books including this one...and I should have ended the series with Total Power. Kyle Mills have totally jumped the shark to the point of I really wonder if this was ghost written by Anthony Fauci. I'll sum it up without spoiling the details of the book. A "green" energy trilionaire (composite of Bill Gates and Elon Musk) wants to upset the global applecart, end fossil fuels as we know it, and develop the "vaccine to end of all vaccines" (all the while testing on African subjects....sound familiar). Mitch Rapp and his merry band of globalist mercs must protect said trillionaire from the petro/Big Pharma governments of the earth. The bad guys...a power hungry US presidential couple and of course the Saudis (think Bush clan)...and of course, the shocker is another American being the bad guy in a betrayal from the operator neighborhood. This is Mitch Rapp neutured into a PC movement where evidently Mills has shown his political stripes, using current events to do so. Very disappointing....I will move onto another series.
This book started off great and was looking like it would be one of my favorites BUT toward the end began to go downhill. It got worse and worse and the last chapters and the ending were so bad I couldn't give it more than 1 star and that's too many. I felt angry and disgusted when I closed the book. Surely my copy of the book was flawed and missing a couple chapters that tied up some of the loose ends. Mills must have been desperate trying to come up with some sort of shocking final twist.
Another review suggested long-time avid Rapp/Flynn fans (like me) should not read this book. I totally agree! I wish I hadn't.
Unfortunately the original author has passed away but he built a few years creating an amazing character I could never put one of his book down I was so disappointed reading enemy at the gate it’s not Vince Flynn it’s not Mitchell rapp and by the way I love the character Mitch rapp so much I named my dog Mitch now I’ve read enemy at the gate I feel that’s probably the last time I’m going to buy Another book miss you vince
I’ve been a committed fan all along so the disappointment is real. Utterly weird plot. New world order / old world order nonsense and I wasn’t entirely sure what the point of it all was. And nothing in the world is going to convince me that Mike Nash would turn traitor because he wants to be on the side of those in power who believe the muggles of the world need hardship and something to struggle against and he wants to be protected from the mob of humanity when it all gets too much. It really is as bonkers as that.
I agree with the other one star ratings that said this book is not really a part of the original series. It ended leaving me unsatisfied, but not really as angry as other reviewers. Just sad that it looks like Kyle Mills, you might say, "jumped the shark." The last third of the book was like the author's deadline was interfering with something else so he just slapped together an odd and sad ending and left so many loose ends that I feel like there needs to be a part two. Sadly, I am not sure I will want to read it, especially if it doesn't come out in the next few months. This book was forgettable.
I LOVE Mitch Rapp and have read every book since the first. So disappointed in Kyle Mills version of Mitch Rapp and what he has done to some of my beloved characters in this book was terrible. As a veteran, wife of a veteran, clearly Kyle Mills has no idea the core values we hold dear. I have never felt so disappointed, disgusted and insulted as I have in this book to say the least. This MAY be the last Mitch Rapp book I read.
