Allegiances will be tested.

Identities will be revealed.

No one is safe.

While searching for the HelixB88 anti-serum on the black market, Ava uncovers valuable intel that may help the rebels in their fight to bring down ISAN—the location of a hidden facility. But first, the insurgents must find the female citizens unexpectedly displaying powers without use of the Helix serum before ISAN captures them.
As the rebels join forces with other sectors, ISAN plans their destruction by using someone they don’t suspect at the rebel home base. A traitor within.
Now, Ava must make a dangerous decision, one that could risk their capture—or worse.

My Review
Genes is book three in the ISAN series, and this one is a doozy. It's an emotional, dark read at times, and it really packs a punch. While there are some lighter moments, I found Genes to be a bit heavy. But it's a fantastic, action-packed read. There are so many revelations. So many new characters. Things are starting to get intense and desperate. Lives are on the line, and the war is just getting started. And that ending... let me tell you what...
I really enjoyed this book. I flew through it as quickly as I could, eager to see if Ava, Rhett, and the others would be able to get a leg up on ISAN. I won't spoil anything, but it's definitely not a pretty (or easy) time for them. 
If you've read the first two books, definitely read Genes. And if you haven't started the series yet, well, what are you waiting for? Fans of dystopian fiction, this is a must read series!
5 stars from me!
