I loved all three of these books. Richard Phillips is a master of weaving an exciting and suspenseful tale with multiple characters and subplots! I couldn't finish fast enough and at the same time hated to see it end.
MacLeod Andrews is a skillful narrator. One of the best.
Truly an intriguing series. Each book held my attention to every word. The storyline flowed at a perfect pace. It never dragged or rushed through important scenes leaving the listener to have to mentally fill in gaps. The irritating parts were were the twin sister character. You knew what ever she did was going to bring about disaster. The foreshadowing was too obvious as well. The other was the author didn't bring any meaningful closure to the Robbie character. Although he did give us a small crumb about his future. This could be an intriguing way to usher in a fourth installment or just a cliffhanger with no real meaning.
Not recommended for teenagers. I wouldn't want to be in the mind of this author.
the trilogy is the most entertaining I have listened to
I like them all, possibly a slight edge to Mark
he is top notch.
don't get concerned about the youth/superpower element in this trilogy. This trilogy is balanced and entertaining SciFi for all ages.
Doctor of misanthropy
The best I can say is that the trilogy is done.
Not that there's anything wrong with the book. It's just that there's nothing particularly right. All the same characters are back doing the same things, and to tell the truth, it has the ring of doneness to it.
I've enjoyed this series, but I'm ready to be done.
It made you use your imagination.
Trust me there were a few.
When one of the characters decided to sacrifice herself for the others to live.
I really been enjoying this series. It's good to have a great imagination and this entire series has really done it. Hopefully this is not the end of these characters cause I'm really looking forward to a book four.
Fun story, good characters, some plot holes and cliched writing but overall a nice escape. Seems poised for a spinoff series.
The third book in the Rho Agenda, Dr. Stephenson has initiated a catastrophe that will destroy the Earth in 9 months. Only he knows how to stop it, and he uses that to get out of prison. Once released, he works towards the guise of fixing the blackhole, but in reality, he is working on his own plans that pose an even greater threat to humanity.
This book had a lot of non-stop action and I really enjoyed it. And it was very enjoying to see the series come to an end, with us learning the fates of all the characters, including Dr. Stephenson. It also finally revealed all about the Rho ship aliens and what their plans for the Earth were. I continued to dislike Dr. Stephenson and Jennifer, but they had big parts to play in the end. The author also did a great job of making me sympathetic for Rauel, and Jack continued to amaze.
Overall this was a great conclusion the series, and by far the best of the three. I'm looking forward to reading the book about Jack's backstory (Once Dead).
I listened to the Audible version. The narrator is extremely good and manages to do quite a few different voices. No issues at all with the narration.
NOTE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
I read all three books in this series and couldn't but it down until the last page. Fantastic imagination and infinite details . Basically a science fiction story about 3 teenage children. Very little romance or sex. Lots of violence
