Publisher's Summary

I didn’t want to take the traditional path. First, I wasn’t ready for college. Second, I was going to live with my best friend Tiff and work at the haunted house. Third, did I mention the hot guy Josh that works there, too?

The most exciting thing about Austria’s new job at a local haunted house was the fact that the toughest looking people screamed the loudest. But when she meets Josh, the boy without a home, Austria's life takes intriguing and eventful turns.

Up until now, Josh has managed to hang with his street crowd, but they’re in danger, and so is Austria, the girl Josh recently fell for. The group finds themselves joining forces with those previously considered enemies who also now find themselves in danger.

Deeply compassionate and full of twists, Altered Helix captures the struggle of polarized people that must work together for the greater good.

An excellent novella

A quick, fast paced, book about homelessness and those that are different. I can’t wait to read the next in the series!

Romance, mystery, ghosts—this story has everything

Romance, mystery, ghosts—this story has everything!! I loved the “fantasy triller” part of the story, and I’m totally rooting for Austria and Josh!

(I’m also scared for them, actually. I feel like there are still a lot of secrets hidden in that Haunted House, and I don’t want anything bad to happen to them!)

So, yeah, if you’re a fan of YA mysteries, I definitely recommend this one!

Wonderful story

The story is quite intriguing. It takes a little bit to get started but stay with it it does get better and drawls you in and starts answering some questions towards the end.

I was not overly impressed with the narrator I think it was the tone of voice it’s a little more high-pitched than I would have enjoyed. But that’s a personal preference, Not bad overall.

A haunted house

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review

There is a lot going on In this book it was hard for me follow the story at times I found myself lost a bit to what was going on. To many characters introduced to fast for me to keep up. This may not happen to other listeners. Series has lots of potential

2.5 stars?

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

There's a lot going on in this book and that's not entirely a good thing. There are quite a few plots that aren't fleshed out and aren't connected in any way, the characters are incredibly one dimensional, the prose was off/unrealistic, and a lot of times I was left thinking, "...what?" after a sentence. Unfortunately, the part I was looking forward to (dystopian stares with a collapsed government) wasn't explored at all; it was just mentioned and forgotten. But haunted houses are still a thing amidst the collapse? The dialogue was lackluster while most of the writing was focused on descriptive bursts that didn't quite fit together. There were also instances of "info-dump" where things are revealed too quickly and all at once without too much suspense; like when the evil villian ruins his evil plot right in front of the hero who inevitably beats him. A quick touch on the romance: I'm sick of the damsel in distress and the brooding, protective knights in shining armor who always have cheesy things to say. It's not romantic, it's cringy. Good things about the novel: it was an interesting idea (altered DNA) but it got lost among the other plots.
