Happy Monday, bookworms!  Welcome to my stop on Helix Blog Tour, hosted by Good Choice Reading, for Helix by Mary Ting.  Today I’m bringing you my book review and an amazing giveaway!


Title:  Helix
Series:  International Sensory Assassin Network #2
Author:  Mary Ting
Genre:  Young Adult Dystopian
Publication:  Vesuvian Books (September 10, 2019)


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.


Helix is the second book in the award-winning International Sensory Assassin Network Novel series.

My Rating: 4.5 stars

Helix is action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat — I absolutely adored it!

This is book two in the YA dystopian ISAN series by Mary Ting.  The story is told in the dual POVs of Rhett and Ava, which added a lot of depth and gave me more of what I was wanting after the first book — Rhett!

Mary Ting has a phenomenal writing style and is an amazing story teller.  She has created a fascinating world in this series.  The stakes are high, the characters are complex, and the romance that’s weaved into the story is ridiculously swoon-worthy!

The plot picks up right where ISAN concluded and is just as intense.  I like seeing more pieces to this puzzle falling into place.  Of course, there is still a lot to be told but the story arc that started at the beginning of book one has continued at a good pace and has left me anxious for book three.

The cast of characters is so fantastic!  Not only do I love Rhett and Ava, but the secondary characters are just as interesting as the leads.  The friendships are fierce and the bonds are strong!

Overall, I absolutely recommend Helix!  This series is one of my favorite YA dystopians, and fans of the genre should enjoy this one!
