Applause to the author Jade Kerrion for the Science Fiction Series, Double Helix. Perfect Betrayal continued where Perfection Unleashed end. Her knowledge and thorough research giving us another excellent read.
Intense is maybe the best word to describe the second book. The scientific intensity of DNA manipulation and the effects on people and the environment skillfully penned down in this highly entertaining book that force you to keep pace in the meticulous build up of the well executed plot.
Mixed in all the intrigues of human emotions, the ebbs and flows of growing relationships mixed with the Alpha Empath's gift you get a very interesting story that draws you in and captures the imagination. Making you part of the characters as realistic beings.
Again we are introduced to the same group in Perfection Unleashed. But this time we get a clear image of Danyael Sabre. The spotlight more on him as a person and not only as a template for the in-human Galahad.
My heart went out for this young doctor struggling to do the right thing but every time thwarted and his plans taking twists and turns that lead up to his capture and ultimate betrayal of friends and the council members he thought would protect him. Walking with unbearable pain as he tried to outrun the schemers who only wants his gifts as exploits to their own power surge and greed.
We also learn more about Zara and her conflicting emotions. Falling in love with the empath but not willing too submit too the feelings and emotions it caused in her life. Leaving her with regrets and a sour taste for perfection at the end.
Lucien who turned on his best friend, the Northern Star in Danyael's life. Of course not by his own will but manipulated by the Mutant Assault Group. Causing havoc in Danyael's life leaving him bereft and alone.
Galahad the in-human who turns on Danyael in his own attempts to gain recognition as a human from the Government.
The Psychic ghosts were brought in but at the end Danyael chose his path above the freedom they offered. The only good thing that came out of that meeting was the introduction to Jacob Johnson.
There is just too much to say about this book in a review. It is best to get the Series and read it for yourself. Starting with the first book to get a understanding of the story.
Discovering a unique world off DNA manipulation, cloning and the effects it can have on us. Relationships is tested and questions asked with no real answers since human emotions plays such a huge roll in the decisions we make.
At the end we live by the choices we make and not what others make for us. That sets our future in motion and is beautifully illustrated in this book.
A book I can highly recommend to every Sci-Fi reader. Suspense filled to the very end.
Well done Jade Kerrion.
