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 the boy without a home, Josh, 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 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
A great start to the series.
Altered Helix was an entertaining read and now I am really looking forward to the rest of this series. Stephanie Hansen has created a fantastic world that I felt myself pulled into.
The story is very well paced. I found it difficult to set this one down. Twists and turns were plenty and I really enjoyed them.
The character development is on point as well. I really enjoyed learning about these characters!

Some dangers come barreling at you like a freight train. Others slide right under your nose without being noticed. When I took the job at the haunted house, I never imagined I’d be kidnapped.
As I’m blacking out, it’s my sense of gratitude that brings me peace in my final moments. At least I was able to experience most of my life’s desires before the end.
I’d found the siblings for which I’d yearned while growing up. I’d met someone with whom to share the rest of my life. And perhaps best of all, after many years, I was finally able to see my father again.
Ironic, isn’t it? To find everything I’d ever desired, just before I die. The black spots in my vision grow closer and closer together until they completely consume my sight. I imagine the cut they’ll make in my body when it’s gutted. My breathing becomes shallow. Then, I feel the sharp pressure from the point of the blade against my flesh as it breaks through my skin. My body won’t move. I want to cry out, but my voice fails me.
