    Future Earth has been poisoned by a mysterious gas named Variant forcing the survivors to create an underground society Generations of humans have attempted to re populate the surface but all attempts have ended in failure until genetically altered children become humanity’s last hope But have the adults become such cowards they would keep secrets from these teens? In a society that manages births and takes children away from their mothers at seven years old Terry has excelled in the academy he has lived at His ability to perform different actions and to calculate how and what to do has not prepared him for what he and his friends will find when they are sent to the surface Able to breathe the Variant air and with limited supplies this brave group will discover where it all began but what will happen if they destroy the machinery responsible?The Amber Project by JN Chaney is in a word stupendous I was right there through the underground government machinations the rivalries and one hundred percent invested in these amazing teens Once they hit the surface I followed their journey and all that happened good and bad I even felt my throat constrict at one point when one unselfish act made me choke upWonderful characters fascinating plotting and another author hits my hidden gem pile I will definitely be following this seriesSeries The Variant Saga Book 1Publisher Variant Publications; 1 edition April 12 2015Publication Date April 12 2015Genre Sci fi | FantasyPrint Length 344 pagesAvailable from |  Barnes NobleFor Reviews More

    This review is for the audible version I'm not sure how much the narration affected my enjoyment of the story The narrator isn't bad but something about the inflection in his sentences didn't sit well with meThe plot revolves around a small underground dystopian society hiding from the death that has become the Earth's atmosphere It has flavors from many of the sci fi greats including Ender's Game Wool and Divergent to name a few Yet it is it's own uniue plotBeing the sci fi lover that I am I enjoyed the evil scientist parts best and the political upheaval parts least However the focus of the story is on a group of extraordinary kids who may be humanity's only salvation It was those kids who kept me enthralled and continuing to the end to see if and how they developedThis book doesn't necessarily end on a cliffhanger It could easily be the end of the story However we get a sneak peek at book 2 so it's obvious that the story continues and leaves us with many uestions and curiosity to see where it will take us next 25 stars for the Audible version of the book

    A Fantastic Indie Author The Amber Project is the first book in Indie author JN Chaney's Variant Saga series I really hadn't heard much about Chaney until recently so I wasn't sure what to expect going into it but I was very pleased with the story It's a dystopian story about survivors that have been forced to live in an underground city because a mysterious gas called the Variant has been spreading across the world A scientist has been experimenting with kids and genetically modifying them to breathe and withstand the toxic gas The story follows one group of kids through their modifications and training to endure the harsh conditions on the surface  The Amber Project had everything I was hoping for in a dystopian Chaney is a talented writer and his debut was outstanding It really exceeded my expectations I found a new favorite author and can't wait to read the rest of the series  I received a copy of The Amber Project from the author in exchange for an honest review Thank you

    I wasn't sure how I was going to like the book but I have to say it was well written story It was different from other dystopian books There wasn't a romance interest in the story but it did keep my interest throughout The story begins in the future where people live underground because the earth was destroyed due to a toxic gas called Variant which spread across the world and killed everything around or changed it Like the sky which was blue is now purple and the grass was blue instead of green Even humans couldn't survive in this gas Scientists spent many years trying to find a way to survive in the gas by testing on unborn children Using females as young as 14 years of age by impregnating them with children that were genetically coded with Variant They're reasoning was to keep the human race from dying They finally a few children seem to be adjusting well to the changes in them and were sent out into the world to see how well they do Some many changes happened to them not just mentally but physically Will these children survive or will this be the end? You'll have to read it to see what happens

    Check out my blog to see Reviews of Book and Movies and check out some RecipesThe Amber Project opens us up to a futuristic world about 200 years after the spread of a toxic gas known as the Variant which spread in 2157 The gas steadily spread across the globe killing all living things it came into contact with and drastically changing the atmosphere The sky is now purple the grass is now blue and there are some predators who managed to adapt and change but little is known about them An underground city was established and cordoned off and sealed from the Variant The population is controlled by 3 main sections the militaryeducation scientific and the matron The three bodies must act together in order for there to be any order in this new world The matron is in charge of all of the mothers that birth the population Children are made through contacts and a mother must have the right genetic coding in order to be eligible to be a mother Women see mothering as a sign of honor and stability and began having children as early as 14 Once children reach the age of 7 they are taken from their homes only run and managed by their mother and any possible siblings and placed into the education system Mara is one of the mothers with almost perfect genetic coding which causes her to be chosen for a specific scientific program allowing her to fuse new experiments with her eggs to produce a possible child that can exist on the surface of the Earth with the Variant This child is named Terry If you want to know than you must read the book Suffice to say that the book is loaded with a devastating new world political intrigue and power struggles as well as the troubles of growing into one self with the added side effects of being a scientific experiment The story is told through multiple points of view to give a brilliant all around look into the world In addition there are answered uestions through the release of past and current audio files and text to help the reader understand what has happened and is happening in the futuristic Earth Chaney has managed to brilliantly fortify a place within a genre rife with half hearted attempts of literature and created a gripping new series I can't wait to read on This was an easy 5 stars and hard to put down I received a copy of this book for free with the For Love of a Book Read Review Opportunity Program

    This has got to be one of the best YA dystopian novels I have read so far The story is so intricately woven with an imaginative world and complex characters As I read through each chapter my interest just kept growing and I didn't want the story to end The story is told from multiple perspectives It has a mix of emotional drama political intrigue betrayal action murder special abilities and so on I loved seeing the relationships in this book There is no romance but the friendships forged were some of the best I have seen in a novel especially between Terry Mei and John I could feel the heartbreak frustrations fear and every roller coaster ride of emotions that each of the characters went through We also get to see the struggle of families and the moral dilemmas in a world where the future of the entire human race rests on a few genetically engineered humansI have absolutely no faults with this book JN Chaney has delivered a dysoptian novel that is extremely satisfying and I can't wait to see what is store for the characters in the second book as the ending has definitely left me reeling

    This book is the best of why I love the indie pub world This book is one of the best YA reads I’ve come across this year—a tension filled read that’s a great ya coming of age story a dystopian political thriller and an action packed creature feature all in one Too many YA dystopias fall down in either world building or characterization but this book does a great job of balancing both We get to watch Terry grow up from a child who feels weak and out of control of his own life into a young man with strengths he never suspected Watching his character journey was one of my favorite parts of the book Lots of cool action and plot never means anything if I’m not connected to the people the action’s happening too but this book is full of heart Terry Mei John and the gang are the first of their kind and seeing them tackle the world was freuently crazy always cool and the kind of book that makes you want to go on their journey of discovery with them every step of the way

    25 starsThe blurb for this one sounded promising so I decided to give it a try Also it had some really high overall reviews Sadly this one just never pulled me into the story I did like the sci fi elements but the character and story development didn’t impress me I think perhaps it was due to the abundance of characters I never really felt a connection to any of them or to the plot There were several times I almost declared this one a DNF but I stuck it out I'm glad it was offered as a kindleunlimited but this wont be a series I personally continue It was just too slow moving for my preference

    The Amber Project is JN Chaney's debut novel and it is AWESOME Not only do you get a uniue well developed dystopian future but he also manages to create original situations and development for his characters some of which are uietly heroic while others are terrific villain material It was easy to cheer for the good guys and though they face major challenges there is an element of hope throughout And I also have to say that the ending is FANTASTIC and made me want to immediately go out and grab the seuel Try this series you won't be disappointed

    I hesitated over whether or not to read this book at first but I'm so glad I decided to read it after all because this book was absolutely amazing It's one of those books I'd give than five stars to if I couldThe characters are all wel rounded and the development of the individual characters along with their relationships with one another evolve nicely throughout the book so that you feel these are real people you're getting to know The plot moves at a nice pace and is so believable you could imagine this happening for real in the future one day Plus the descriptions are excellent and help to draw you in to the story and keep you there until the endIn short if you enjoy dystopian novels and are looking for a new author to try you should read this bookNote I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review However this fact has in no way influenced either my opinion of this book or the contents of this review
