Here is my review of three. A climactic finish. Didn't dissapoint. The build up was riveting. It escaped the trite finale. Again, if you love sci-fi you will love this series through to the end. Book one: If you like GOOD science fiction you will like this series. The character development was outstanding. You knew who they were, what they cared about and just enough twists in their characters to be believable. The story was well defined and escalated at the appropriate pace to keep you engaged and wondering - where is he taking me next? The plot line for the trilogy was well thought and progressed from one book to the next as it should. If I hadn't bought all three at once and just read the first book waiting for the second I would have been mad because I enjoyed plowing through all three at once. Like I said, if you like sci-fi you will like this series. One note: There is some heavy physics and math discussions. I know nothing about either so there were a few paragraphs I glossed over or skipped. Not so much that it was irritating - enough to make you think he knows what he's talking about so I'll trust it. Don't be intimidated, it really doesn't alter the story line or detract from anything in the books. Book two: Book two follows book one seamlessly. The political intrigue adds so much to the entire series. I always think that people that don't believe in government cover ups or assassinations are naive and this was handled so well as to be believable. The characters progress so well and he is not afraid to put them through the ringer. They are vulnerable enough to cringe when they are hurt. The mistakes they make cause you to give yourself a forehead slap - don't do it. And evil enough to despise and wish them ill. Well done.

    This is the last book in the Rho Agenda trilogy. This series was one of the nicest surprises I've had in awhile. The whole idea of as secret space ship in New Mexico seemed so like a stereotype from 50's science fiction. While the initial premise maybe a little dated; the implementation was totally fresh. The characters developed deeply as the series developed. The plot was complex but not so you couldn't follow. The end was satisfying with most of the lose ends tied up.

The things that were not totally resolved were really left up to our imagination. I read these kind of stories mainly for enjoyment. If that is what your looking for, you'll not be disappointed .

    Book 3. The author's writing has matured in this series and this is the best one yet. Because of unanswered questions. I can see a fourth book coming. Not very standalone. Make sure you read books 1&2 first. Book 3. The author's writing has matured in this series and this is the best one yet. Because of unanswered questions. I can see a fourth book coming.

They exonerate Stephenson from his horrifying crimes of stealing the Rho ship technology for his own power hungry agenda and distributing nanite formula that caused gross deformity, madness and illness instead of curing everything. All Stephenson's crimes were then publicly blamed on Jack. Stephenson is taken from his prison cell, toasted at the White House as a hero, then taken to CERN. The U.S. needs Stephenson to stop the black hole from eating the Earth. He is the only scientist with the knowledge to throw the black hole into space before it ate the planet, but of course, he has a hidden agenda. Our three kids had to find out what he is doing and stop him, but first, they have to get out of the U.S., and that is going to prove to be a challenge. Jack and Janet act as trainers, facilitators and handlers as our three protagonists take on the NAVY SEALS, the NSA, the Rho ship as well as an augmented Stephenson himself with his scientific creation to get rid of the black hole and create a gateway. A gateway to what, or whom? The government still wants to kill the Ripper at any cost, and the same goes for Janet, who is seriously pregnant, so they have to physically stay under the radar, but it doesn't stop Jack from going anywhere he wants in his stealthy fashion in support of the kids. There is no discussion about the alien in Jack's head, so I guess it isn't either the Kasarians or the Altrians that banished this alien to be an exiled spirit, or something would have been mentioned. I am interested not only about the future of Jack's alien rider, but also Robby's imaginary friend that he gained through a simple accident on the back patio. If there is another book, Robby at an older age would be quite interesting to follow, especially with parents like Jack and Janet. Out of the three, only Janet hasn't been changed in some way. The first third of the book was set up, and therefore a bit slow. The next third of the book got the story rolling and I was glad to finally have some action. The last third of the book is all action and flies by at an incredible pace. There are only a few new characters. The new head of the NSA is billed as being significantly more qualified than Riles, but he doesn't come off that way, he comes off as a forceful, arrogant bull of a man who wouldn't know an insight if it bit him. Ms. Wu, the Cal Tech Computer Wunderkind seems to have some obvious blind spots for someone in her position. I guess it wouldn't be clear unless you knew about the subject matter. Bottom line: It is an incredible capstone to the six book series ( or the two trilogies ), and it puts to bed most of the nagging questions that I haven't mentioned. This book had more hard science than all the others combined. Highly Recommended!

    While the trilogy ended with a sort of happy resolve, there was far too much violence and creepy characters in the whole thing for me. Sort of science fiction with a soupcon of horror, which is not my cup of tea. While I enjoy adventure and I don't mind violence, this series had a lot for the main characters who are just 17 years old. Granted, they were "enhanced".

    This review will also apply to the first two books in the series, The Second Ship, and Immune, because I'm too lazy to actually go and add those to my shelves.

I also read the other two in 2012, and pretty much failed to record anything I read after August of last year anyway, so I figured I wouldn't mess with that. Anyway, this book was really close to getting three stars, but I couldn't get over the fact that it would frequently jar me out of the story with poor writing -- particularly the descriptive similes (an example from book one describes one character swooping into a classroom "like an angry pterodactyl")-- and/or unfollowed up on plot elements (e.g. when one character has something happen to him which appears to have portends for the future of the story, but that is never, ever followed up on). I can't forgive that, Richard Phillips, I'm sorry. Which is too bad, because although the book is full of one-dimensional characters, they were at least pleasantly one-dimensional, and sure science and plot elements were absurd, but they were enjoyably absurd (I especially enjoyed the 'behind-the-scenes government' bits).

    This book was the payoff and made the series worthwhile. It's in this volume that you truly find out what has been going on the whole time and the entire story (and various components of it) all come together in an interesting and exciting way. A very good series and well worth the time invested!

    Wow. This was book 3 of the series and I devoured all three. It's tough to find good Science Fiction and this author delivers. Even though some of the main characters are teens, this reads as a full on adult thriller. The plot is intricate, the science solid, the action non-stop.....I'm really hoping there will be another!!

    Best book of the series When I started the series I thought it was going to be a lame young adult novel but I was wrong. I loved this one the most as three author did an awesome job closing loose ends, while including decent plot twists.

    This was the best of the three books of this trilogy. A fitting conclusion to the series with all the surprising twists of the other two books, but much less of the unbelievable of the second.

    I would have given this series 5 stars but for a few things that annoyed me. The third book does deserve a 5 but the other two deserve a 4. The 3 young protagonists, despite their superhuman capacity for intelligence and ability make so many stupid decisions. I had to keep reminding myself that they are just kids in High School, but it comes to a point, especially in the second book, where their stupid decisions stretch credibility. For example, in the second book, Jen runs away because she thin I would have given this series 5 stars but for a few things that annoyed me.

For example, in the second book, Jen runs away because she thinks she is superior to her friends and proceeds to immediately get kidnapped by a Cartel. Instead of dealing with the apocalyptic dangers facing them, Mark and Heather go to search for her (not knowing she was kidnapped) and waste 2/3 of the book on something that never needed to happen in the first place if not for Jen's arrogance and immaturity. I understand that they are just kids, but you would think that the gifts given them would have allowed them to step back and look at their actions and say "hey, what I am doing right now is really stupid and a waste of time". All that being said, I loved the series so much so that after I finished the second book I bought all the others (Assimilation series and Inception series) without a second thought. I would also suggest not reading the series in chronological order but in release order. (Rho Agenda first, then Rho Agenda Inception, then Rho Agenda Assimilation)

    The slow start in the first book of the series is more than made up for in the last of the series. This one is so packed with action that it is hard to put down from the minute it starts. The three teenagers are still growing into their powers, and they can do so much more now. Mostly you worry whether they will do it responsibly or be seduced by power as so many are.

History shows that it is the rare individual who can attain power and use it well, so it is a legitimate concern throughout the series and one that is tested from time to time. Politicians do not portray well in any of these books, but the author does a great job of explaining their foolish decisions. You still catch yourself yelling silently, "What can he be THINKING?" when some of these decisions are so obviously wrong. Frequently you wonder just which side he or she is on. Not too different from current events, is it? Time to start the next series in the Rho saga.

We kind of hate that. :-( Now this is going to sound picky, but these characters have bought a farm on the 'south side'' of the Pelorus river, which is just up the road from me, and for the most part, runs south to north so doesn't really have a 'south side'. The Kiwis with the Australian accent return home to Canvastown after visiting the farm, which is interesting only in as much as it is known for the quality of its cannabis which is said to grow in abundance there. The book was great, and three more to enjoy.

    Before you pick up this book, please make sure you have read #1 and #2 in the series as this is not a standalone novel you can pick up and understand the scenes and situations! I read the first two books in the series and enjoyed them, actually I had a hard time putting them down, and this third installment picks right up where it left off.

If you read and enjoyed the first two novels, grab this one now - you won't be disappointed!

The 3 teens finally come into their new found selves and unleash a world of badassery on the world and Dr. Stephenson.

    I could not put this book down. The culmination of The Rho Agenda, it finally pulls together most of the various threads of the story. I am slightly disappointed that there are a few questions unanswered, but that mostly makes me hungry for the next books. This trilogy is primarily fascinating because of the intriguing plot devices (alien technology granting teenagers with superpowers), but I also really like the characters. I look forward to reading more.

    Strong science I love how this series was very scientific, and wasn't dumbed down so that everyone could understand it. The author thought of some spectacular real world applications of quantum physics, which I loved! I am going to have series hangover; meaning that I loved this series so much, it will be hard to move onto another. There were many surprise twists and turns. Not many books get a solid 5 stars from me, but this one certainly deserved it!

    An exciting end to a fun series This third book provides an exciting, fulfilling end to this Rho Agenda trilogy. Upon finishing this book I now realize that there's a prequel trilogy and a sequel trilogy. I haven't read either and do believe that this trilogy can be read on its own.

    I've really enjoyed these Rho Agenda novels. They're a mix between an espionage thriller and science fiction, and the good guys and bad guys do not always turn out to be who you think they will be. It's especially nice how the characters change and evolve. The only static characters are the ones who don't last that long.

    What an explosive way to wrap up the series!!! The author wrote the last book in the series with aplomb worthy is a master. Almost all of the loose ends have been tied into a bow, but there might be more to come, just maybe.
