In 1948, an alien starship crash-landed in the New Mexico desert and brought with it the key to mankind's future. Code-named the Rho Project, the landing was shrouded in secrecy, and only the highest-ranking US government and military personnel knew it existed. Until now.

The US president is preparing to unveil one of the nation's greatest secrets when three students stumble across the wreckage of a second ship outside of Los Alamos. With a single touch, the alien technology the government has spent untold resources trying to unlock is uploaded into the minds of three teenagers - teenagers who now know the frightening truth about the Rho Project.The battle for humanity has begun.

    " The story starts off slow. This is only part one. Keep reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed Tinkertoy | 2/8/2014

    " I liked the story, some sci fi but I didn't care for the attitudes of the teens. But overall it was good. Just beware nthere are 3 books to finish the story and the third book has not yet been published "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 2/6/2014

    " A lot of fun, with great characters. Normally the high-schoolers as heroes thing just annoys me, but I liked it in this book... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gremily | 2/4/2014

    " An original concept, but juvenile character development and some pretty lame writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise Philipbar | 1/31/2014

    " Almost too campy. A fun romp but not great. Kept me busy on a long day of flying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan Kohn | 1/8/2014

    " A quick read that you don't want to put down. There is always something going on and always something coming up. Looking forward to the next 2 books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jp | 1/4/2014

    " This is a very exciting book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/30/2013

    " Intriguing sci fi, good characters that didn't get irritating, you could tell the author had military knowledge. Loved all the secret agent stuff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin | 12/27/2013

    " Good interesting story line, but did not like the writing style. Am interested to see what happens in the next book and if the writing improves. Will set the series aside for a while and maybe come back to it later "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas Avasol | 12/20/2013

    " This was a pretty decent sci-fi novel but I'm hoping that the second book is a bit better. I certainly cruised through this one but I was not necessarily enamored and / or thrilled either. The science part of this book is decent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 12/13/2013

    " What a great start to this trilogy. I'm staying with it, and book 2 will be my next read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wayne | 12/8/2013

    " I read it sorta fast, but that was because I like the storyline. The characters seem to well developed. There were a couple of times that the story seemed to switch out of sequence. Maybe it was because I read it too fast in those areas. Overall, it read well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 12/6/2013

    " I really liked the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Per Gunnar | 11/14/2013

    " I cannot say it was a really bad book but I wasn't really too impressed with it either. I will probably not read the next one in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Guillermo Diaz | 10/17/2013

    " Good story. A different view of alien encounters. Fast paced and entertaining. I also read the next book Inmune. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Hancock | 10/14/2013

    " A really fast paced piece of sci fi action. Just enough informatn to make things flow and to keep you guessing. One of the few books i have read that has teenagers as the main characters that doesnt feel like im watching a crappy soap opera. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gabriel Reyes | 7/4/2013

    " It was a great company during my last trip. Easy to read, the main idea is fun to follow and the author does not get into too much detail on the science. Guess will keep reading the rest of the books on the trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Caroti | 5/12/2013

    " excellent read ... edge of my seat stuff on my kindle and I enjoyed every page ... annoyed that book 3 isn't out yet! I'll be back! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gerry | 5/11/2013

    " This is a great character study with an interesting plot. I am not really a si-fi fan; however, I really enjoyed this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William Tucker | 2/15/2013

    " Good characters in a fun read. The style is somewhere between adult and young adult. The science isn't exact, but a fun read doesn't have to be entirely exact. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rod | 12/11/2012

    " At first you would think that this is an Enid Blyton Famous Five book. All that is missing is Timmy the dog. But it does get quite gritty after a while. With a good plot and an easy going style this is a pleasant read for fans of good old fashioned sci fi. "
