Good morning, bookpups🐾 If you’ve been following us on Bookstagram, you already know I’ve been devouring Mary Ting’s latest fast-paced YA Dystopian series. Today, I’m sharing my review of Helix, the second in this exciting series.
QOTD: Do you have a favorite genre?
One of my favorite genres (after romance), has always been the dystopian. Once the pandemic struck, I stayed away from this genre because everything I was reading in my books suddenly seemed a little too much like what was going on in the world.

🐾Many thanks to the author, Mary Ting, for my complimentary copy. This in no way influenced my review.🐾
While I really enjoyed ISAN (book 1 in this series), I enjoyed Helix even more. I absolutely loved Rhett and Ava. Throughout the book, they’re rediscovering their relationship (as Ava gains more of her little memory blips), and Ava’s eyes are being open to the evils of ISAN.
Yay new characters!
Cleo was a bit of an annoyance for me at first, but only because of her serious crush on Rhett. Seriously, get over it, girl! I just wasn’t in the mood for a love triangle, especially not as Rhett and Ava started falling in love all over again. As the book progressed, though, I warmed up to her. She’s actually a pretty decent character and I hope to see more of her💕
New branches of ISAN, bigger evils.
This time around, I didn’t feel like they were so isolated. And I really loved how loyal Ava was to Brooke. She could have just walked away from ISAN and never looked back, but she was determined to get Brooke out with her.
And that cliffhanger! Oh no!
