Anyone who dares challenge the Rho Project is being systematically picked off. At the top of the hit man’s death list: NSA fixer Jack Gregory, and the three teenagers who first exposed the Rho Project’s dark agenda to the world.
On the run for their lives, Heather, Mark, and Jennifer know that the Rho Project’s alien nano-technology has been released into the world, disguised as a miracle cure. But what they don’t yet know is that the serum has taken on a life of its own, modifying human DNA in a way that even its engineers cannot control - one that will alter the very fabric of humanity.

Immune kept you guessing, as in the first book. The cliff hanger at the end of the book is a good lead in for the third book.
The story was pretty good but I felt the language and sexual violence ruined what would have been a good book. I know there are many books out there with stronger language etc. but from the reviews and description on Audible I had not expected this level. And for for me these things were distracting enough that I probably won't continue the series.
Tell us about yourself!
This book picks up where The Second Ship left off. A lot less teen drama in this one, more focus is put on the adult aspects of this story and it really helps pick things up. Alien technology, mad scientist, government conspiracy, secret agents, and those meddlesome kids combine to form a very well put together sci-fi story.
MacLeod Andrews does a great job with this story. Pulls off a range of characters from teenage girls to Colombian crime boss without a hitch. Does an excellent job of bringing out the story without stepping out into the forefront
This audio was a very good listen. A lot of technical stuff, but not to much. I like tech stuff. Some profanity (more then I personally like), but not too much. The brutality of some of the killing could have been left out.
This book was so bad I was ready to give up on it... until the floating legless messianic evil supra-genius piped in "rock and roll" which turned out to be Nickelback.
Just went from a confusing mess of fiction where everyone seems to carry knockout gas to a train wreck I couldn't look away from.
It was a sore struggle to reach the end of the book… but like Jack, I used the powers of the angel of Death which lies (somehow) nestled inside me to endure the characters comprised solely of good or entirely of evil and a meandering narrative that reads more like a 12 year olds diary than a piece of fiction.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s probably a demographic for this book and if you’re between the ages of 11 and 16 you can safely ignore the review… for anyone else, think twice.
I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
I thought I understood the story arc of what began as a YA si-fi trilogy, apparently it took a left turn-now Jennifer is working for Columbian Drug Lords.
It goes downhill from there.
As a stand alone novel with a bit of explanation this might work, but suddenly the smart parents have turned dumb, the 3 teens are becoming Transformers and what was a sci-fi series became more of a "CIA assassin turns good guy and saves everyone" type of book.
The story arc is more of a circle and the plot line is a bucket of worms.
Right now, I'm wishing I never started this "mell of a hess" novel-it's pretty much a waste of time.
If, however, there is any saving grace, it's McLeod Andrews narration-he still can't do a womans voice but he is trying to draw the listener in.
I wouldn't waste my time, but I already bought the entire trilogy and want to see the whole thing thru.
someone impressed with physics
poor character development
the performance was as good as it could be given the material
don't get me started
Do you enjoy page after page of descriptions of dismemberment & torture ( including the torture of pregnant women) ? This is the book for you. I am disgusted with myself for reading it.. or most of it. I picked up the first book as a fun car trip read, liking sci-fi and thrillers. The second becomes basically a vivid description of torture every other chapter,.. until part way through the second half when that is what you can expect in every chapter. I wanted to know what happens to the young protagonists but began fast forwarding through hideous material ... which is pretty much the entire ending of the book.
Most of this is unnecessary for the plot. I didn't expect this to be a great work of literature, but I would never have purchased it knowing that it was sadistic.
Disgusting sadism, all major female characters are victims or intended for rape and torture. We get to hear lots of hideous details from the plethora of serial killers. Women are more or less powerless, adheres to sexist stereotypes throughout.
Disgust. Sadness that someone enjoys reading (and writing) this stuff.
