    "Great second book!"

    Immune is the 2nd novel in the Rho Agenda series. The three teens Jennifer, Heather, and Mark must work to stop the government from unleashing evil Rho-ship technologies upon the populace.

    I really enjoyed this book as it had some major action and some really well-developed characters. I most liked the Navajo sheriff Tall Bear, the drug lord, the assassin (chupacabra), and Jack. Also Raul had some interesting development too. There were a few characters in this novel that were so absolutely insane that it had to take the author quite some work and imagination to come up with their thought processes. With the exception of Jack and Janet, most of my favorite characters in this series were introduced in this novel. We also learn more about the technologies and capabilities of both ships, which was really interesting to me.

    As for what I didn't like: The three main teen protagonists really didn't develop a whole lot of this book and spent parts of it unfocused and untasked. And Jennifer... I didn't think it was possible for a character to be such an idiot. She derails a good portion of the book. Dr. Stephenson remained a flat, absolute boring character, and most of his government cronies like the vice president were equally boring. We're in two books here and still have no idea who Stephenson is, what his motivations are, etc. We really see almost no humanity in the man. Thankfully he didn't take as much of a front seat in this novel as he could have. Also this is a really long book and there were some parts that were a bit slow and boring.

    Also surprisingly, the profanity level in this novel was really high. It wasn't necessarily gratuitous, but rather a ton of characters with potty mouths. There were also parts that were gruesome and just plain adult material (rape, murder, etc.). I would have to say that while I thought the first book was upper YA, I think this book is more appropriate to adults, despite the teen protagonists.

    Overall, this was a great novel with lots of action and a bunch of well-rounded characters (except Stephenson). I'm looking forward to the next book.

    I listened to the audiobook and felt that the narrator did a super job. He didn't do a screaming woman the best, and he missed a few voices here and there, but it was extremely rare.

    NOTE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Much Ado About Nothing"
    What did you like best about Immune? What did you like least?

    The only thing I liked about this book was the narrator; his voice was like "buttah" and his many character changes were all different and believable; a very talented narrator. This genre may not be for me, but the book read, to me, like an juvenile Hardy Boys story. I just didn't keep my attention, I thought it dragged on and on and the ending was very abrupt.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Richard Phillips? Why or why not?

    I don't think so. If it is similar to the book I just read, it would be a no.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    Do you think Immune needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I guess so, for those people who enjoyed the story.

    Story
    "Far better and more exciting than the first...."
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The least interesting aspect is definitely the high school and parents storyline which is why book one was so....I don't want to say bad, but boring maybe. As soon as the author did away with that part of the storyline the book became more interesting.


    Was Immune worth the listening time?

    I wanted to see where the story was going with the alien tech and alien conflict that downed the ships. That is basically the only reason I went on from book one. I can say happily that the author does a much better job in creating conflict and action in this book. It still wasn't a hardcore drama, but the sci fi does ramp up a notch along with the action.


    Any additional comments?

    Again, this series is probably not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but its an okay sci-fi story. This book graduated several levels above the previous book so I think I will go ahead and see the conlusion to the series - or the next book at least - since I don't know if that one will end in a cliff hanger or not.

    "Great 2nd book in a fantastic trilogy!"

    Crazy Columbian Drug Lord? Check.

    This isn't so much a 2nd book, as it is the rest of book 1.

    This is scifi to keep you up late at night. Completely original and highly adictive.

    "Solid follow up to book 1"

    This book followed up book 1 nicely and had enough variation in geography so it wasn't just a repeat of the first. It advanced the story and kept things interesting enough for me to want to read the third.

    "so bad"

    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.

    Boom!

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    The story, beginning in the Second Ship, takes off again with almost no chance to catch your breath! Will our three protagonists defeat the evil doctor?

    "Well written"
    What did you love best about Immune?

    This is a pretty good story. It is well written and moves along nicely. The story has a couple of unexpected turns and doesn't clutter up the plot with a bunch of junk. Good character development.
