The characters are well developed and likeable. I look forward to reading the next book. The narrator did a good job. This was quick low angst listen. This story had action, suspense and a hotness factor. But the h is annoying and needs to be slapped. Frustrating and needs slapped!!
This series is different from many of Milly Taiden's other stories in that shifters are a secret to the general public. The government has agreed to deny the existence of shifters in return for their help whenever the need arises, creating the A. In many situations of this sort, it feels like one party or the other is being exploited, but I don't feel that way so much in this series.
The fact is, everyone on the A. A team volunteered for it such as Frank from book 2, Mating Needs , wanting to be on the team. There might be recruiting going on, but I didn't get the feeling people were forced to be on the team against their will. Additionally, the people in charge of the team seem to do their best to not let any of the shifters on it burn out by letting them retire and bringing in new, younger shifters. Being on this team is a point of pride to the shifters, not some sort of indentured servitude. Some of the concepts in this book were absolutely fascinating.
The most probably being the Underworld: it is whatever you want it to be. Parish wasn't able to see the castle until he opened himself and believed. I really loved Wilson.
He was just so entertaining and sweet and literal. Taiden's repeated description of the demons as large floating raisins was hilarious, as was Wilson's first attempt at giving himself a face. The introduction of the Underworld aspect in and of itself was great, adding another dimension to Taiden's books.
I also very much enjoyed the relationship that is built between Melinda and what she comes to see as her guardian cat Parish in his jaguar form, unbeknownst to her. She bonds with the cat in a way she didn't with other humans. It also gave Parish the opportunity to be near her and kind of get to know her a bit while being able to protect her, though letting her continue to believe the cat is an actual jaguar as opposed to a shifter might be considered morally reprehensible. I really enjoyed having both a male and a female narrator for this book and series.
I can't tell if this book is more annoying or boring. Neither of the narrators correctly pronounces Uganda. I found it very distracting, which was unfortunate because I was already trying to ignore the fact that the author has clearly never been there. Get a free audiobook. Elemental Mating.

Astella Wisconsin I'm so bored I won't even wait for a hot scene I can't tell if this book is more annoying or boring. Amazon Customer Salisbury, MD So I took a stab at it and we sent it over to Sony [Pictures Television] and Lynda Obst, she takes a real interest in science, she did Contact and really sort of prides herself on the subject, and she saw something in it.
So I developed it over at Sony for probably about six months. Then they said "if you could work with anyone on this project, who would you want to do it with? They sent it over to him and he was interested so he got on board. Then together we came up with an overarching mythology that would extend over the course of the entire series, then he and I together pitched it to Syfy.
Porsandeh stated that a major feature of the series is that each episode represents the events of a single day within the story: thus the entire thirteen episode first season takes place in under two weeks of in-universe time. According to Porsandeh, Helix will not make use of flashback scenes to give details about character backstories, the way the science fiction series Lost did. Instead, a key point is that viral infection will at times make characters feverish and hallucinate which is a real-life symptom of several infections.
Thus certain characters will at times experience hallucinations, i. The distinction Porsandeh pointed out is that a flashback is presented as objectively true, while the hallucination scenes in Helix are presented from the characters' feverish hallucinatory states, and thus their unreliable narration will contain several errors which do not match events as they actually occurred.

Helix received generally positive reviews from critics. The critical consensus for season one described the show as "effectively creepy and oozing with chills" and that the show "unexpectedly digs deep into its world and its characters, with a suspenseful plot that continues to pique interest as it advances.
Louis Post-Dispatch , said of the first season: "you like this kind of thing or you don't, and I don't, particularly, but Helix is very involving. He felt that cast was "led admirably" by Billy Campbell as Dr. Alan Farragut, saying "Mr. Campbell is one of the busiest actors around" and despite the fact that "an abundance of work can sometimes lead to performances that feel phoned in", it doesn't feel that way here.
