Project Eden is a continuing series that can be thought of as a single 60 hour book, so each of the first 6 books end with a lot of uncertainty and unresolved issues. The suspense builds up to a point that very few action thrillers can match. Along with the Jonathan Quinn series Project Eden establishes Brett Battles as one of the best thriller writers ever. Sick is the first book in the series.
McLeod Andrews narrates the Project Eden series and he does his usual great job.

Note: except for my review in book one, will use this as my review for the rest in the series.
I review the first book when I was on book four. I think I gave story 4 stars only because I think books three and four should have been combined in one longer book. Book one really rates a five.
I felt three and four should have been combined because three ended unexpectedly, without a true ending, very much a cliffhanger. If I would have had to wait between three and four, I may not have continued. Luckily, I did not have to wait and I could binge listen.
I give the series five stars for the overall story (thank you for pandemic without zombies) The most excellent reader and the character arcs (growth) from beginning to end. This is why I like characters. They must remain true to their character (steadfast) or they grow, learn and adapt to the conflicts in the story - either way, they stay on mission, achieving small goals that lead to the larger overall goal of the series. In the series most grow and grow well. Most notably, Ash's kids, Sanjay and his friends, Martina and her friends and the group on the island off Costa Rica. I was engrossed in all of their lives and struggles and how they really had to fight to survive.
This was my first time reading Brett Battles and I enjoyed it very much. I can't say enough about MacLeod Andrews except he was so good in this series I rate him number two in my list of readers, right behind Ray Porter.

I'm enjoying reading this series and loved the first two books. This book leaves you feel 'what! Finished already'. As the start of the book is a continuation of the last scene in book two and the end scenes seem unfinished; maybe the series should have been split better.
Saying that, I'm going to continue to read the rest of the Eden Project series and still would recommend it.
