Overview

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 has 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 scheme to track down and exterminate Ellis before he can return to New Earth and inform the peacekeepers.

Helix Wars, sequel to the best-selling Helix, is a fast-paced adventure novel about the ultimate threat to the Helix itself.

This was a great book. It developed slowly and drew me into some nice surprises.

Being fortunate to read both Helix and Helix Wars back to back i found myself caught in possibilities, probabilites, and lookng at current state of our world slide subtely into view with little effort i was amazed at the clarity which held my attention for hours. Not a Sci-Fi fan i was amazed again at the grip both books held me in. Thank you again

The story was inventive and a real page turner, although a bit heavy on ideaology.

Good story idea, but not executed very well. I felt like the characters were somewhat shallow, and quite possibly somewhat dim. Scenes that were pivotal to the story were glossed over in a paragraph or two. Pacing seemed inconsistent. Overall I was not impressed
