    1. Let me start this review with a question — Have you ever read a book that you were having a great time until the ending? Not because you’re sad to have finished the book but somehow all your joy transformed into anger at the conclusion; An ending that tarnished the whole reading experience. Has that happened to you? Yes, that was my experience with this book. I was completely enchanted with the science fiction universe the authors created — so much so I stayed up until 4 o’clock in the m [...]

    2. Helios continues the Universe Eventual saga begun with Chimera. This is a fast-paced space drama with tense action, tight dialog, and tangled relationships. It takes the "boot camp" cadets from Chimera into a military academy experience on a space station prepping them for a real mission. (Warning: there are spoilers for any who haven't read Chimera. Read it before Helios or this review.) Marcus continues his manipulative and deceitful ways to push forward his agenda which is made all the easier [...]

    3. This series is really growing on me. I enjoyed Book 1, but Helios is even better. I love that the authors (and that's pretty cool--N.J. Tanger is actually a collaboration of three authors, I think) took their time to world-build this series in a way that adds depth I don't often see in these sort of stories. There is time given to the motivations of the characters. We truly understand their psyche by the book's end. But don't get me wrong. The pace moves well too. I grew to enjoy these character [...]

    4. Helios is a page-turner from start to finish. It has an incredibly engaging story that will keep you hooked until the end. I dare say it may even be better than the first book. A few typos crop up here and there, but they don't bring down the experience.The best aspect of this story is the characterization. The three writers expertly build a roster of compelling protagonists (and at least one antagonist). Marcus in particular is a deep character; you never know if you should hate him or sympathi [...]

    5. Excellent. Seat of your pants non-stop action. I bought book 3 as soon as I finished. This series would make an incredible movie.

    6. This was really really entertaining until the ending. This is one of those instances where I keep reading because the story is great and the ending just killed any chance I had at enjoying the whole series. The story is the second book in the series and picks up easily where Chimera ended. Instead of reading about the way things work, this book lets you learn as you go in a way that keeps it from getting confusing. As I moved through the story I imagined the different directions that it could go [...]

    7. A great sequel for this fantastic young adult sci-fi series. The plot in Helios picks up right where Chimera left off. The plot is mostly solid. The characters are interesting and engaging. Though our hero and antagonist make a few decisions that feel slightly contrived and "necessary" for the story versus a true emotional action/reaction, but that could just be my darker, gritty side complaining. All in all, another brilliant foray into the stars and beyond

    8. The Chimera atmoshpere darkens, the characters fight against the destiny some regular YA author could be tempted to condemned them to. The AIs suffer from some adolescent/identity crisis.Once again a nice surprise.

    9. Started well - but I didn't like the betrayals and that some of my favorite characters got killed off.

    10. Chimera and Helios are both excellent reads. I'm looking forward to the next in the series with great anticipation.

    11. Expect to find spoilers in the following review:Good story in general terms, but it left me with conflicting emotions.Let’s start with the pros: The story is page turner. If not from the very beginning, at least after 1/3 of it. Once they are in fractal space—the author's version of the hyperspace—the emotion and suspense skyrockets. The last day, I didn’t go to bed until I’ve finished the story and then I dreamt of it. Well done! An outstanding job.Now the cons: I disliked Theo’s ch [...]

    12. I would watch the TV show!I don't typically read scifi. This series has so far been quite the ride! I've finished Chimera and Helios, and it just keeps getting better. The first book builds the Universe Eventual world for you and gets you attached to the characters. The second is an intense page turner. I HAVE to read the next one immediately! I'm left on the edge of me seat! All along, I've felt this series would make an excellent TV show. I would totally watch it.

    13. Helios continues the Universe Eventual saga begun with Chimera. This is a fast-paced space drama with tense action, tight dialog, and tangled relationships. It takes the “boot camp” cadets from Chimera into a military academy experience on a space station prepping them for a real mission. (Warning: there are spoilers for any who haven’t read Chimera. Read it before Helios or this review.) Marcus continues his manipulative and deceitful ways to push forward his agenda which is made all the [...]

    14. Helios is a futuristic sci-fi fantasy and the second book in the Universe Eventual series. In this nail-biting sequel, we get to see the young men and women we met in the first novel come into their own. The Chimera is finally awakened, the crew positions filled, and her voyage to Earth is imminent. The civil unrest of the colony continues unchecked and valuable resources are dwindling making their mission a priority. But what will they find on the other end of fractal space?I would first like t [...]

    15. Helios (book 2 of the Universe Eventual series) by N. J. Tanger is an excellent example of good science fiction. It is full of intrigue and non-stop adventure.I really like N. J. Tanger's writing style. This is the second book of the series I have read and I was not disappointed. It flows seamlessly from book one into the book and the adventure just grew more intense. The book is full of plot twist and turns and you have to keep up are you will be left behind. I really liked reading this book.It [...]

    16. An engrossing sequel to Chimera with an equally maddening cliff hanger ending. Theo, Selena, Marcus, and Megan are more fully developed in this installment. Marcus, the bad guy you love to hate, becomes more human. His choices and manipulation, propelling the story and the crew forward, are explained and the reader feels as tortured as Theo knowing that his choice is awful, but probably necessary. Megan, Theo, and Selena face opportunities to prove their true allegiance and their mettle, while a [...]

    17. 4.5 StarsA pretty awesome sequel! If you loved Chimera, then you will enjoy book 2. Helios includes well-developed characters, exciting action and nail-biting suspense, and some great space drama. The characters are dynamic; some you can't decide if you love or hate while others just surprise you. The fight scenes are intense and the setting is very detailed. The writing is fantastic; it flows like honey. Seriously, I couldn't put the novel down once I started reading. The ending was a shocker, [...]

    18. Following Chimera, this second book in the series follows most of the same characters and has a similar set of features including the rites of passage. That said, we shouldn't expect this to be just an update on book one as some of the characters gain significant depth, and some just die.In Marcus you have a complete psychopath, comfortable at manipulating others to get to his goals, and killing them if they threaten him. Of all the characters Selena's and Theo's develops the most, though in ver [...]

    19. This series is getting really interesting. There was so much action in this book. There is always someone plotting, something changing, something unexpected popping up.This is predominantly a space book, but it's really about the relationships of the people involved. Everyone is still so young, so decisions and emotions run high and realistically rule people's choices and thoughts.The ending of the book brought a lot of changes, and it will be interesting to see how the next story picks up the t [...]

    20. A decent read. Nicely realized world. Liked most of the characters. Thought the nemesis got a bit overdrawn towards the end. Not sure why the power-madness had to be amped-up in the last part of the book. Had to skip some parts as I was getting bogged down. Not sure I would have read it if I'd known it stops here. Confused by the final choices of some of the characters. Hopefully, there will be a 3rd book in the story.

    21. Wonderful book twoIt is twenty-five after midnight and I need to sleep but just can't put my kindle down. I am about to purchase book three now. This book, Helios was wonderful. Gut wrenching and exciting. I have fallen in love with the characters, especially Theo, who has lost himself along the way; and Selena, who has found herself in the process. Bravo to the authors!

    22. Lots of really great ideas here - a well written story. It was very exciting and engaging. I just had to keep reading to see what happened. There was a significant amount of graphic violence, though. Overall, I didn't enjoy the plot (the way the story went) and found the ending especially disappointing.

    23. Another excellent installment of the Universe Eventual series! Truly epic in scope, certain portions of the story seemed a bit slow - but were more than made up for by the fast-paced and suspenseful parts!

    24. I received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.This is a thoroughly enjoyable sequel to Chimera.It is a well paced action adventure that leaves you wanting more.

    25. Really enjoyed this. Ate it all up in one sitting. In fact I stayed up til 230am reading. Bad but good book. Very evil.

    26. Unexpected Ending!Where is the next book??? This book was really good although I found a couple parts dragging unlike the 1st book. Still got me wanting more though!!!
