Anyone who dares challenge the Rho Project is being systematically picked off. At the top of the hit man’s death list: NSA fixer Jack Gregory, and the three teenagers who first exposed the Rho Project’s dark agenda to the world.
On the run for their lives, Heather, Mark, and Jennifer know that the Rho Project’s alien nano-technology has been released into the world, disguised as a miracle cure. But what they don’t yet know is that the serum has taken on a life of its own, modifying human DNA in a way that even its engineers cannot control - one that will alter the very fabric of humanity.

A second volume that stands alone - brilliantly
WOW - Turning out to be a great series!!
Yes - for sure. It is fun and very well done. It was hard to put down. A gripping and interesting story with great sci-fi concepts (many of which are either new or done if a fresh way), great action, and a lot of suspense.
I listened to him on "The Second Ship" and I thought he did an okay job. But just as this book is much better than the first, I believe his performance was much better also. There are a lot of characters and he has to do a lot of voices. He does so very well without it sounding goofy.
I don't know what the tag line would be, but this story telling reminds me of Game of Thrones. There are multiple parallel stories going on and it gracefully jumps between them. As I read/listened I could almost envision this being produced into 10 or so episodes. This would pay homage to the story much better than a movie. The chapters are fairly short (but a lot of them) so you are not held in suspense for too long if the story jumps to other characters.
I reviewed "The Second Ship" and like many reviewers thought it was a little juvenile at times... but WOW, not this book!! I don't know if Richard Phillips took similar feedback to hart or if he just improved as an author, but this book was stellar in my opinion! This is really right-up-my-alley actually and I can't wait to dive into the final book. The situations are a bit "darker" than the first book, but not too dark. The language is a little more "adult" but not over the top. Just enough to keep various characters dialog believable. I think he did a splendid job making this more appealing to adults while also striking a good balance that doesn't kick it out of the Teen/YA category. I wouldn't hesitate letting my 16yo daughter read this, and likewise, I wouldn't be embarrassed to recommend it to any hard core sci-fi adult friend either. Nice job Mr. Phillips!
