Helix by Mary Ting

International Sensory Assassin Network #2

On My Kindle BR's review of Helix (ISAN #2) by Mary Ting
Alliances are forming. The resistance is growing. Everything is about to change.

With her memory still fragmented, Ava returns to the International Sensory Assassin Network (ISAN) to find the twin sister she never knew she had.

But as Ava hunts for information, she finds herself tangled in a web of yet more lies and conspiracy. The Helix serum may not be required to access her superpowers, and the number of male assassins—previously considered too volatile to tolerate Helix—is growing in every territory.

The more Ava uncovers, the more of a threat she becomes to ISAN. Her only salvation may be to join the rebels—if she isn’t killed first.

In this installment of the "International Sensory Assassin Network" series, Ava returns to the ISAN complex she escaped from in the hopes of finding her father and her twin sister. As Ava comes closer to finding her father and discovering who her twin sister is, she learns more about ISAN's abhorrent practices. However, she has to be careful because ISAN suspects that she knows more than she says she is and they are willing to kill her to keep their secrets.

High-octane action and exciting suspense made Helix a riveting read. The emotionally-charged intrigue as Ava uncovers the truth about her sister and father is compelling. The clever and witty dialogue is delightfully conversational, and I loved learning even more about Rhett and Ava as their romance continues to unfold. The only issue I had with the book was since ISAN was released over a year ago, I felt that a short reminder of the events in the previous book was in order.

Other than that minor issue, Helix by Mary Ting is a well-written and fast-paced science fiction novel with intrigue and romance galore set in a well-crafted dytopian world. The cliffhanger at the end is almost heartbreaking, but I am still crazy about the series and I am already looking forward to the next book.
