I think that this book was so intense and such an adventure if you are into that kind of genre. It really gets you to get to know Ed and what the others thought if Ed! A real read that you don’t want to put down! I would really recommend this book!

I really enjoyed this book, number 3 from the series 'The Medusa Progect' which was from the eyes of Ed. The genre of this series is definetely action however, there are bits of mystery throughout the book. Some devestating events occurred, though this hooked me to the book and i couldn't stop reading it! Towards the end, although it was page turning, i noticed that it began to get a bit predictable or at least it did for me. None the less it was left on a cliffhanger and this helped to link it ...more

This was another amazing book from the Medusa Project series. It was fast paced with action and suspense unfolding on every page. This time the book was being told by Ed another one of the characters with the Medusa gene. His power is to read and find out what people are thinking through their mind as well as speak to them in their mind. I found the ending particularly exciting iting as there was lots of action. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who likes a fast paced exciting rea ...more
The Rescue is book 3 in The Medusa Project.

I found this book to be a little better than the second one. There was a lot going on but I managed to keep up. Also, a stranger helping you multiple times suggest there is an ulterior motive or they are not who they seem!! I thought it was pretty obvious who Stanley really was, once I'd realised that only Nico had seen Carter. The death at the end was quite sad though... Additionally, I these books sort of reminded me of L.J. Smith's Dark Visions Series.

I didn't really like his book because there was too much going on I didn't know how to keep up with the amount of change that there was compared to the first two but there was still some surprising things like Luz dying at the end because I didn't think foster would do it.

Read this review and more on my blog.

The Rescue is the third book in the Medusa Project series.

Check out my review of the second book, The Hostage here.

The Rescue is told in the perspective of Ed, the telepath. I found it very interesting to find out how exactly his telepathy works, as well as watching Ed experiment with the limits of it. The Rescue picks of where The Hostage left off, with the Medusa Gang being transported to a training camp in Spain due to the events of the

Sophie McKenzie's The Hostage #3 from the series called The Medusa project is a very fun, exciting, and cliff hanging book. There are 7 important characters in this book which are Ed,Ketty,Dylan,Nico, Blake Carson the illegal weapon dealer from the first book of the series,Geri Patterson, and Señor Fernandez. After the bomb situation finished and Ketty lied on the bomb situation, Geri sends the team Nico,Ed,Ketty, and Dylan to a camp which will teach them manners in Spain. Señor Fernandez finds ...more

This book was even better than the first two, definitely the best book in the series so far. I would definitely say that this book is more of a 3.5 than a 3, but I don’t think it is quite a 4, but hopefully this series will get better and maybe one will just get a 4 star rating. I loved this book because it was fast paced and action packed, and I read this book in one sitting, because it just really grabs your interest and because it is a fast paced book you want to keep reading on. This book wa ...more

For me, this book was quite good. I neither love it nor hate it. It's fast-paced, thrilling and full of exciting twists. You're probably wondering why I don't LOVE it? Meh, I like action books, but romance and paranormal mysteries remain my favourites, which is why this book isn't up there.
One character did irritate me throughout this book-Ketty. She seems quite childish and weak in comparison to some of the others, and is oblivious to the fact that Ed is better than Nico. But, on the othe

I loved the Medusa Project series (this is the third in the series) but this is one of my favourites because it was written from the point of view of Ed - one of my favourite characters.

The title of the books has nothing really to do with the actual plot of the story.

It is a suspenseful and very much page-turning read but it is VERY necessary to start with the first book and read all of the books - your guaranteed a great ending!

There are lots of surprises in

Sophie Mckenzie has managed yet again to deliver another fantastic action-packed Medusa Project book!
Since the existence of the Medusa teens became known to the members of the criminal underworld, they have been hidden away in a secluded training camp in Spain. Life in camp is hard enough, but then things take a turn for the worse. Ed is blackmailed into using his mind-reading powers - and in doing so he threatens to endanger the whole Medusa project.... Another good read! This time the charact

I wasn't all that sure about whether or not I would like this book - but I did. It was amazing, full of action (which I like) and fantastic. I felt really sorry for Ed when Luz got shot right in front of him but I also had admiration for him when he went into the burning church to save Tsonga's family including his little five year old daughter Victoria. I am not really sure if I like Ed or not though; he is courageous and brave, he can sometimes be a big coward. At the end, I was really glad th ...more

this book is great! you just can stop reading!, its one of the best, i cant wait to read the next Medusa Project book, you get scared and happy and worried for the characters ! you should really read it, i normally hated reading long books but Sophie Mckenzie changed that, i don't care how long the book is as long as it is one of Sophie Mckenzie's. :)

The series just gets better as it goes on. And this book did not disappoint. I like that each book is written from the point of view of another character. This one is from Ed's point of view who in my opinion has the coolest power of them all.

Nico, me and you are over! Team Ed for the win! After reading this book, Ed is my new Medusa crush! I like tons better in this episode than i did in the previous two where i found him a bit of a douche.
