Product description

Product Description

In the undersea colony of Civica, the last descendants of Earth have finally given in to their fears, and civil war is spreading like a virus. Thousands have died and many more are threatened.

Captain Jacob Stone and the crew of the Rogue Wave have fled across Civica's protective border, and are attempting a dangerous one-way trip through uncharted waters in search of a new home.

Along the way, they will face sabotage, starvation, mutiny, and even the loss of a fellow crewmate. And, finally, they will come face to face with the terror of the deep, the monster of legends, the Novum.

Rubicon is the third book in the NOVUM series.

What has come before:

Novum Book 1: "Genesis"
As the descendants of Earth struggle to survive in an aging undersea colony, an ancient and deadly power is awakened.

Novum Book 2: "Exile"
In the last human colony of Civica, the captain and crew of the Rogue Wave discover a dark secret that could ignite civil war.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strange Twist to the Storyline 3 October 2015
By Michael Gallagher - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
To start off, this is the third short story in a series. If you haven’t read the other two, the characters and situation won’t make much sense to you. The first book in the series can be found if you click the title here: Novum: (Novum Series, Book 1)

I’ve read the first two of the series and they were pretty good – I’ve waited a while for this one as it take the author one year to publish each short story. If you have enjoyed the first two of the series, this third installment takes a hard right turn and is almost as if it was written by someone else. Without having a spoiler, you jump back and forth between situations and wonder if you are in (a) reality, (b) a dream, (c) caught in a segment of another storyline that somehow was published as part three of a series. The ending was not very realistic and the entire episode was very strange to me.

While parts of it were good, readers of the first two stories in the series will probably be disappointed. At the end of this one, there is a mention to look forward to the continuing tales of the crew. After this installment, I will probably give it a pass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action and lots of mystery 3 October 2015
By Catherine Mackay - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have just finished the third installment, Novum:Rubicon and all I can say is - 'what a fantastic book'. It keeps you guessing from the start - just when you think you know what is going on, Joseph Rhea rips the rug out from under the reader. The ending was completely unexpected - it resolved some of the mysteries put forward in the previous books, but it has opened up even more mysteries that I am looking forward to finding out about when Rhea puts out the fourth installment. Overall, Rhea has created an extremely interesting future world that has many mysteries, has great characters and has an interesting plot-line. My one hang-up is that each installment is so short - I just want more - which I guess is testimont to Joseph Rhea's writing talant. I highly recommend this series to sci-fi fans who like something with adventure, mystery and has a cerebral element.

5.0 out of 5 stars DON'T start, you will be hooked! 20 October 2015

I wish I hadn't started this series. Lost sleep, avoiding people,etc. I am captivated and the author can't write fast enough to satisfy my need. I highly recommend this author.
3.0 out of 5 stars Ok is all I can give it 6 November 2015

My take, this three part serial would have made one really great book. It's a shame the author didn't have enough confidence to present it that way. I gladly would have paid the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not great. 10 November 2015
By Oolong Looper - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Joseph Rhea tried an interesting twist with this book, but unfortunately I don't think it worked particularly well. The whole thing felt fairly flat and muddled compared to the previous books, with the main 'twist' being fairly clear from the beginning (or it was meant to be obvious, in which case it was a bit convoluted). Regardless, while it was an okay filler in the series it wasn't a highlight, and I am hopeful that the next in the series will return to the traditional format the original books followed. Not a bad book by any stretch, but not a particularly exciting one either.
