  • awe-inspiring

    Mary Ting’s GENES is an awe-inspiring addition to the International Sensory Assassin Network. GENES takes place where book two, HELIX left off. Ava and crew are searching for the HelixB88 anti-serum to help save Brooke. Meanwhile, Ava discovers some things about her family. This book is suitable for young adults. I loved this novel. Ava and friends go through compelling situations in this book. There is never a dull moment in this story. GENES is emotional and extraordinary. The conspiracy and drama are noteworthy. Mary Ting continues to do a phenomenal job with the International Sensory Assassin Network. I would love to see these books turned into a television or movie series. It would be visually appealing and thrilling. I am highly anticipating book four. I do not recommend reading this book as a stand-alone. You want all information from the previous books. I recommend this series to people who enjoy dystopian science-fiction novels like the Divergent series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

  • Another pulse-pounding edition in this high-tech,

    WARNING: Spoilers for books 1 and 2. The third book in the International Sensory Assassin Network (ISAN) series, GENES is a rollercoaster ride that never lets up. It picks up in the immediate aftermath of HELIX. We once again find Rhett, Ava and their renegade friends struggling for survival while trying to find a way to bring down ISAN. Except this time, they have the help of some super-powered little friends. At the end of HELIX, we learn a plethora of heinous acts ISAN has been up to. Armed with this knowledge, Ava is more determined than ever to end them and Mr. Novak, the leader of ISAN, once and for all. Ava now knows the identity of her twin, but they are not who she expected. As the rebels fight to save the lives of everyone they love, they willingly risk their own. There’s not much I can say without giving too much away, but this installment is action-packed with more romance, more love, and more loss than in the previous two books. It’s the very definition of a page-turner. Plot The story is well-plotted and moves almost constantly. The author does a good job of planting the seeds we need at just the right time for everything to fall inevitably into place. Ting is an expert at white-knuckle suspense and GENES is no different. The stakes are higher than ever and Ava and Rhett have so much more to lose. Characters Not only do we hear from Ava and Rhett again, but we get some new points of view. Rhett’s goes from first person to third and it was a little jarring at first, but I got used to it quickly. Ava continues her growth arc, learning that she is not responsible for everyone and everything. In addition to the new characters we met at the end of HELIX, there are more new characters, both good and evil. Some of the bad dudes aren’t as well developed as they could be, but that’s a small complaint in an otherwise stellar read. What I Loved About GENES 1. Twists. There are more twists and turns, starting in chapter 1, that kept me on the edge of my seat. 2. Rhett. Once again, he is swoon-worthy and nearly perfect. 3. Mr. Novak. He is the type of villain I relish hating. 4. Ava. She has her moments when I want to slap some sense into her, but the more I learn about her backstory, the more I’ve come to understand her. 5. Momo. A new character, she’s spunk on steroids and may be my new favorite character. Watch out Rhett, you have some adorable competition for best character in the ISAN series. Bottom Line Another pulse-pounding edition in this high-tech, sci-fi dystopian romantic adventure. Disclaimer I was provided with a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
