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.

patchy storyline, characters that don't make sense

*Some* of the concept of this boon/series is interesting enough; it sounds as if the author did his research in terms of all the scientific info referenced. But beyond that, this is pretty much a long, convoluted, journey from nowhere to nowhere

2 big complaints:
Characters make choices that are wildly outside their normal behavior, and Philips offers no explanation as to why. E.G. One of the 3 maim characters just up and runs away from home one day, despite being very connected to friends/family & the "project" they're working on together. Philips never really goes into detail as to what spurred that decision, either via an inner monologue or dialogue with other characters. E.G. When her 2 friends finally find her, neither of them expresses any anger towards her, not even bothers to ask why she left in the first place. It was ridiculous and completely unbelievable. People do not engage with one another that way.

I'm really struggling for something to recommend the text itself, and I'm coming up empty. The only thing I can say is thank the gods this was narrated by MacLeod Andrew's; I shutter to think what unendurable torture this experience would have been with any other performer.

Good right up to the end but then falls flat

One of those stories that keep you glued to the plot right up to the end but then leave you wondering if you've missed something. I could not help feel that the grand finale was out of character, the last few decisions pointless.

Best of the 3

The first book was good, the second one we better, the third book is easily the best. Couldn't put this one down!

Another captivating story

Book 1 focused on quantum entanglement SciFi applications while book 2 turned its attention to wormholes and a near-eminent event horizon. Book 3 of the trilogy finally brings on the warring aliens and goes into much more depth as to their motives and does so in the thrilling manner we've come to expect from the first two books.


[WARNING spoiler="ALERT"]
I dropped it one star since the author left several story arcs unresolved (Jen's addiction, Rho ship's whereabouts, pay back for US government's duplicity, &c)

The long long long story.

Very confusing at times. Jumps back and forth too many times too quickly. I hope you enjoy more than I did.

Good ending to the Rho series

I did enjoy this book - the 3rd and final installment in The Rho Project series. Macleod Andrew's narration was perfect- I could listen to him any day! At times the technical explanations in the story line made it drag but I still enjoyed it.

Really good; kind of wordy

Love the first two. This one was really good, could have done with less description of "scenes" and more in depth character build. Felt almost like a screen play. Still enjoyed it! Would love for another one to come out!

Very enjoyable series

I can easily recommend this series. Except for a bit of a performance issue during the first book, it is definitely a good read / listen.

Enjoy!
