I was given an ARC of Helix Episode 1 from Nathan Farrugia.
I have read the first book in Nathan Farrugia's "Fifth Column" series, and really liked it even though the technical, scientific and military jargon weighed the book down a bit.
It is a complementary story to the Fifth Column series, but the reader does not need to have read any prior books to be able to connect.
That being said, I truly loved Helix - really. The premise reminded me of Hanna - 2011 movie with Eric Bana and Saoirse Ronan - that I absolutely loved. Helix is different, but I was intrigued before I even started reading (always a good sign).
The suspense and meat of the book began right away, so much so that I read almost half of the story in one sitting - of course when I had other things to do. The only reason that I stopped reading was it was late and I had a meeting the next morning.
A project came up at work that would not let me continue reading. But as a testament, I wanted to finish and thought about it every night. Once I picked it back up, it was done in an hour or so. I can't believe that I was "pulled" to finishing the story, but I was!
I enjoy the author's style of writing and was pleased that the scientific and military jargon was reduced but not eliminated (perfect for me).
Helix has flashback chapters, maybe once every other section or so. I'm usually not a fan of this technique but it didn't irritate me - the flashbacks were integral in understanding the importance and context of the main plot line.
I know this review is pretty long and effusive - definitely not my norm. I guess I liked Helix that much! ((Only thought - I wanted more resolution and a longer story.))
Thank you Nathan!
