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.

Hello, My name is Levi Brousseau. I'm on a life long mission to find stories that blow my mind.
This was an superb story. I loved the whole series. Lots of sci-fi action. I think you will love it to. check it out
The 3 Book Series are at the top of my list.
This series is so beyond pin pointing one moment. I'll admit when they reached out to Janet Smithe my eyes were wet. This is a very clever story with brilliant technology, great characters, fresh perspectives and original ideas.
He is one amazing narrator. He must be an actor to pull off all those voices. Never over the top. Can't imagine a better mix of story and narrator.
Same as above
Lucky you that had not read this series yet. You are in for a great ride.
1. Style. Full of tired, eye-roll-inducing similes. Everything hits "like a ton of bricks", etc. 2. It's one of those books that can't seem to decide if it's YA or more "adult". On the YA side, it's fast-paced, most heroes are teens, and most bad people are authority figures (though the parents are portrayed as suffocatingly angelic). But then there's enough graphic violence and enough near-sex scenes that I wouldn't let my young teen kids read it.
Most: Enough twists to not be painfully predictable. Enough momentum and discovery to keep it fun. Least: Again, the style just hurts. Action sequences are pretty well-developed. Much of what was between them was a chore.
Everything. He handles a stunning range of accents well, with a drama level that seems just right.
Um. Yes, there are still loose ends. But, I'm not coming back for more. The story had me hooked, but the style was killing me the whole time. I got through all 3 books because I wanted to see how the story played out, but only sort of enjoyed the ride.
First of all I have to say comparing from book one to book three it just seems like two different authors almost. Book one was so meandering and slightly boring, but by book three the action is high intensity and way more interesting. I enjoyed the small glimpses into the alien world and description of them. I wish we had learned more about both races, but I'm very satisfied with where the story went. I see they left a bit of a hope for a fourth book there at the end. I would buy it just to hear more of the story.
I wish I could go back to my original review on book one and put a notation in saying to stick with the story because it gets better.
Avid audible listener for over 10 years.
Bought #1, #2 and #3 in this series. As good as Hunger Games, Ender's Game and even Girl With a Dragon Tattoo. Rated as YA but as an adult I enjoyed because of all the science. If you have a teen daughter have her listen.
Yes, very well written, kept our attention through all three books.
My husband and I both enjoyed the books in this series. Great for all ages.
Increasing my ops tempo by allowing storytellers to whisper in my ear(buds).
The third novel in this trilogy continues its move towards a more aggressive story. This seems like more of a Spy Thriller than the Young Adult Science Fiction that the first novel so obviously stereotyped. Here Phillips even throws in a few F bombs just to avoid that PG-13 rating. This book works best on the story level. Phillips clearly had a good idea of the entire story arc, because the ending works so well with the previous two books. Richard Phillips is an author with promise. It is unclear if he will become a Robert Heinlein or a Michael Crichton — The latter, I think. His strengths in plotting will be better served in the Techno-Thriller genre. If you like this series you may like the DAEMON set by Daniel Suarez.
After listening to MacLeod Andrews through these three books I can say that he is a good fit for this series. He is so earnest and sincere that even when some of his female characters come off as a little too butch he does not detract from the enjoyment.
Of the 3 books in the trilogy I generally expect the finale to be strong but this was the weakest of the group. Stand alone I wouldn't recommend this but if you've read the other 2 then you should just to see it through.
book #2 for me was decent, but was so "blah", i didn't even write a review. it was entertaining but when it was over, i felt no excitement or ... anything. it was just done. in book #3, there seemed to be more emotion and though put into the story. i feel as though it could have been a few hours longer and parts were rushed, but it was good enough to be happy with the purchase.
