Publisher's Summary

When the Rho Project’s lead scientist, Dr. Donald Stephenson, is imprisoned for his crimes against humanity, the world dares to think the threat posed by the Rho Project’s alien technologies is finally over. The world is wrong. In Switzerland, scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider have discovered a new threat, a scientific anomaly capable of destroying the earth - and only Rho Project technology can stop it. In exchange for a full pardon, Dr. Stephenson agrees to create a wormhole that will send the anomaly into deep space.

But his promise masks the alien agenda that brought the Rho Ship to earth. Now a trio of accidentally altered humans must infiltrate Stephenson’s wormhole project and stop it, no matter the cost. The final battle has begun - and this is one battle mankind cannot afford to lose.

    "Truly Satisfying"

    What a series! Although all of the stories in this series are very well written and highly addictive, I must say that Wormhole was my favorite hands down. There were a lot of driveway moments with this one. Heck, this book was so good that I had driveway moments when I pulled in to a parking spot @ work!

    I usually pride myself on my ability to foresee specific events in a book before they happen, but this storyline was so complex with so many potential possibilities that after a while I just gave up, and enjoyed the narration.

    Although every book is all about perspective, the author really takes it to another level because even though you might despise a character, you always felt a deep connection with that character, and even resignation with whatever mischief and wrongdoing they were responsible for.

    Overall, a great story told by a phenomenal narrator. I am patiently waiting on a part four, hopefully! Please keep this series going Mr. Richards, prove all of my crazy predictions wrong, and indulge your readers with your spectacular vision.

    Story
    "Fun, Fast, and Furious"
    Would you listen to Wormhole again? Why?

    I already have. These three novels of The Rho Agenda trilogy are like a three act play. The Second Ship introduces the main characters and presents them with a life changing problem. Immune focuses the attention of the government conspiracy and a brutal international assassin on our three young heroes, robbing them of their once comfortable lives, and launching them on a run for survival. Wormhole sets the scene for the final battle for our planet and, in a climactic crescendo that seems to span a third of the book, the action is rapid fire and unrelenting. I don't believe anyone that enjoyed a movie like The Avengers could listen to this third book only once. When MacLeod Andrews reached the end, I could only say, Wow!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Heather McFarland. While this character begins the trilogy as a close approximation of one of the Walton daughters, as events shatter her life around her, she evolves into a leader, making tough decisions and viciously executing them, not without remorse. It's nice to see strong female characters that are central to the plot.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think he's great and this one ranks among his best performances so far.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I tell you what boss, I wouldn't screw with her.


    Any additional comments?

    The climax is one of the most mind boggling action sequences you will find anywhere. You're going to have fun with this one.

    "In Significant Need of Copy-Editing"
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of MacLeod Andrews?

    Anyone with more experience.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    One review for all three books, I guess. I just don’t think they deserve more.

    This is the final book in a series of three where the plot is supposed to come to a logical conclusion with the help of a number of sci-fi gimmicks and CIA training.
    Unfortunately, it feels as if the author forgot about at least a third of the plot lines he started, mostly neglected the evil heroes from the previous two books and completely botched all science he could, thus losing all potential credibility.
    I still can’t figure out why a spaceship couldn’t carry live crew on a wormhole transit, but aliens and others could just jump about through gateways, no harm done, even though the gateways were supposed to be wormholes themselves in the first place…
    Also, how come the admittedly clever Dr. Stephenson ended up so unerringly brilliant without being ‘improved’ by the second ship and without an active connection to the Rho ship? Furthermore, if he had somehow managed to memorise all Rho ship science on his own, why did he need all the research staff on the Rho project for so many years?

    Frankly, I believe this book (as well as its two predecessors) would have benefitted enormously form a serious dose of professional copy-editing. I’m not saying it wasn’t done, but it looks as it was done by some amateur. I’ve read many authors’ first published works and have rarely encountered any with such poor writing, character and plot development.
    Which, in all, is a pity, as the premise is quite intriguing in itself.

    "Great series worth the time and money."

    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.

    "Stick a fork in it"

    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.

    What did you love best about Wormhole?

    It made you use your imagination.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wormhole?

    Trust me there were a few.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    Mark


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When one of the characters decided to sacrifice herself for the others to live.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Suspend disbelief & enjoy the action"

    Fun story, good characters, some plot holes and cliched writing but overall a nice escape. Seems poised for a spinoff series.
