In top-secret Los Alamos, New Mexico, scientists have made a revolutionary breakthrough, but something has gone horribly wrong. As a team of special operatives struggles to stop the Rho Project while containment is still possible, they find themselves betrayed by their own government. Now their only chance for survival lies in finding their secret source within the Rho Project. In this heart pounding follow-up to The Second Ship, Richard Phillips takes his young protagonists on a thrill ride into darkness, a journey that thrusts their once comfortable lives through a meat grinder as brutal as a young soldier's first taste of combat. And if they fail, what it means to be human is about to change ... forever.

    This series is an absolute winner! Can hardly wait to read Book Three!

    This second book of the Rho Agenda certainly kept my attention going at high speed. I suppose it could be read as a stand-alone, but because the story continues with no break and.to get a real feel of understanding where the story has been and how it got to where it is, I do recommend that the first book in the series be read before tackling this one. You will be very glad you did because it sets up and prepares you for everything that is about to come. Picking up immediately from where "The Second Ship: Book One of the Rho Agenda" left off, "Immune: Book Two of the Rho Agenda" is much more active and serious. A roller-coaster ride of a lifetime with no tracks! What is your talent or special ability? Imagine if it was increased a thousandfold? This is one of the many facets of the book. What if you find out your enemy has also increased specialties a thousandfold? Although "Immune" is a much darker story than "The Second Ship", that darkness was carefully set up in the first book and follows through, building to threshold on threshold. There seems to be no stopping it. Hang on to your hats, everyone, it's going to be a bumpy ride! Our three teen protagonists, Heather, Jen and Mark, have become even more in control of and more adept at their exceptional talents. Their focus and brilliance is amazing, but still they maintain the usual ups and downs of normal teens. I found myself wishing I had the same power of speed reading as Mark, one of his newly learned abilities. The speed reading would have made it possible for me to read this book without stopping to eat or sleep. In fact, I did forget to eat, but sleep overtook me. Richard Phillips has an incredible way of bringing his readers right into the story, one can't help but be involved. What an encompassing book, what a fantastic series! Tender moments between heart-stopping terror; horror and conspiracy, but at the same time a bonding between friends; death and new life; all there and more. There are constantly new things discovered on the Rho Ship, but Jen has shut down the Second Ship to save it. Everything from drug lords to heroes to good and evil in high places, even good and evil between the two ships, and our young heroes are on the run. New characters are introduced, some old and new characters disappear, "poof"! Emotional ups and downs are enough to keep any reader on his/her toes. This is one very gripping tale. The story is hungry, it wants all your attention and devours you. This book crosses so many genres, or what we may think of as genres, I believe Richard Phillips could write about anything and fascinate the reader! This series is an absolute winner! We're now left hanging, breathless, wondering what will come with the next book! One thing we know, it will pack a wallop.

    Intense Doesn't Begin to Describe This Thriller

    Having read and loved The Second Ship ( Book One of The Rho Agenda ), I was thrilled that Immune (Book Two) was also available for the Nook. This book picks up right where The Second Ship left off but be warned. The three main characters get slammed into a violent pressure cooker that causes them to question who they really are and whether they can survive. The pace of the story and the intensity of the action left me gasping, sometimes having to set the book aside for a few moments to recover my equilibrium. I can't remember being so starkly affected by a current day thriller since Jaws. If you survive those periodic shocks in the story, you'll be glad you did. Bring on book three.

    Thrilling~ could not put it down!

    Richard Phillips produced an amazing 'Roswell' science fiction thriller with 'The Second Ship (The Rho Agenda)' and he certainly did not disappoint with 'Immune (Book Two of the Rho Agenda)'. I was on the edge of suspense while submersed in his created world as the story continues with Mark, Jen and Heather trying to expose what the Los Alamos Laboratory is attempting to release to the world, as being dangerous for the population. Along the way, the teens suffer their personal trials and the team sent in to investigate the National Laboratory is left on their own as many attached to them are killed. An investigative reporter becomes involved and leaks the information on the nano-serum and others meet tragic ends.

    Phillips is phenomenal at adding in a few new characters, giving description of all things occurring and taking this story to another twisted, but enjoyable level. If you have an overly active imagination and find violence offensive, then I would suggest you pass as descriptions on some events are just enough to provoke the wildest imagination to take over. Yet for any sci-fi lover, or those that just love to read anything 'alien' related, this was amazing as it grips you immediately and the conspiracies unwrap and you find yourself rooting for the main characters to overcome! I am anxiously and impatiently awaiting 'Wormhole', the third in this wonderful series.

    The kindle,supported by amazon, has the 1st and 3rd books in this series. In addition (on kindle) this book sells for $2.00.
    I have noticed that this is generally the case for many SF books.
    Nook needs to get their act together if they wish to compete in the SF realm. They need to check out the competition sometime. As it now stands my next ereader will not be a nook
