A really good follow-up to Helix, I actually enjoyed this book even more. The opportunity has been well taken to flesh out the worlds of the Helix, as well as the races that we encounter in the story. The characters are well drawn and the narrative, and action (plot within plot) is really driven by the characters; very clearly and very well done. Great stuff.
I missed the sense of awe and wonder in the first book, this is more of a slightly traditional actioner, but it was inevitable after the first book traded so well and heavily in the introduction of the world. It does mean that while the action is really gripping, there isn't the same element of surprise running throughout. Saying that, it does pull out some pretty inspired and epic ideas here and there.
Still going strong, give us a third!
Really enjoyed the story although it’s not my usual sort of Sci-Fi.
I don’t normally go for fighting type stories but this was very good.
I started to care for the main characters and came to know how they think
and what they believed in.
Don’t want to spoil the first book but suffice to say this story is some time after
the humans have become established on the new world and found a place in the system.
Well worth a read.
Rear cover synopsis:
"The Helix: a vast spiral of ten thousand worlds turning around its sun. Aeons ago, the enigmatic Builders constructed the Helix as a refuge for alien races on the verge of extinction.
Two hundred years ago, humankind came to the Helix aboard a great colony ship, and the builders conferred on them the mantle of peacekeepers. For that long, peace had reigned on the Helix. But when shuttle pilot Jeff Ellis crash-lands on the world of Phandra, he interrupts a barbarous invasion from the neighbouring Sporelli, who are now racing to catch and exterminate Ellis before he can return to New Earth and inform the peacekeepers."
Jeff Ellis is a man down on his luck. His marriage is failing and the death of their son didn't rekindle the love he and his wife once shared.Read more ›

Oh dear, I have just read the other reviews and see the concept of the "series" is in question! I was hoping for a Ringworld type series but this may not be the case. Read morePublished on 12 Nov. 2013 by omits
