Helix Wars by Eric Brown


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 are now racing to catch and exterminate Ellis before he can return to New Earth and inform the peacekeepers.

Eric Brown returns to the rich worlds he created in the best-selling Helix with a vast science-fiction adventure populated with strange characters and fascinating creatures.

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
