Synopsis: It has been three years since the day of the Second Jolt. Thanks to the efforts of a select few, the world is finally moving on. As the Variant air begins to thin, humanity finds itself on the cusp of a new age of exploration…but at what cost?

 

After closing the rift—the source of all Variant—the hybrid child known as Terry has been transported to a distant world, far away from the only home he’s ever known. Completely isolated, and haunted by voices from his past, he wanders through the ruins of an ancient civilization long forgotten.

 

Back on Earth, a young woman named Mei works tirelessly to uncover the secrets of the rift. Against orders, she searches for the truth, making an unprecedented gamble. Will her obsession bring the answers she so desperately seeks…or will it cause even more destruction?

Amber Project

The Amber Project: A Dystopian Sci-fi Novel (The Variant Saga Book 1)

In 2157, a mysterious gas known as Variant spreads across the globe, killing or mutating most organic life. The surviving humans take refuge in an underground city, determined to return home. But after generations of failures and botched attempts, hope is beginning to dwindle. That is, until a young scientist makes a unique discovery—and everything changes. Suddenly, there’s reason to hope again, and it rests within a group of genetically engineered children that are both human and Variant.

 

Terry is one of these children, modified and trained to endure the harsh conditions of a planet he cannot begin to understand. After years of preparation, Terry thinks he knows what to expect. But the reality is far stranger than anything he can imagine—and what he will become is far more dangerous.

Nirvana By J.R. Stewart

I initially had trouble with this book. I try not to be too critical, but I spent more time dreading reading it and then just not being able to connect with the characters. Andrew is supposedly dead, but Larissa just can’t fathom life without her beloved husband. Especially since she can see, hear and feel him during her virtual reality sessions. The thing is he sends her physical proof that he still exists begging her to understand this is the most he can give her. It is a struggle to read as she tries to find him in the great blue yonder but then the author and publisher did something amazing. They took the readers at their word and found the original book to be lacking and spent time and effort on correcting the issues we had
Nirvana.ca
“Your review has been forwarded to the publisher and because they value the opinion of book advocates such as yourself, they have contracted a high profile editor to work on the manuscript with the author to implement several improvements to this advance readers copy prior to publication.” (DigiWriting Book Marketing Agency)

After actually listening to the readers of the original ARC I received this email asking if I would be willing to do a re-read of the newly formatted and extensively edited rewrite from the author. I accepted and I’m impressed with the results. It truly reads like a whole different book.
The new format gives the reader a better glimpse into the world of Nirvana and gives us characters that are original and fresh with feelings of hopes and doubts and the need to understand what is happening in a world we are not familiar and most wouldn’t be comfortable with. It still follow Larissa, “Kenders” and Andrew but now also shows them before they knew each other and this helps round out the characters.
Like before this new world in 2080 is dealing with the fallout from the extinction of something that seems trivial, bees. Without bees, the world falls to ruin but an opportunistic company Hexagon develops a program with Andrew that people of means can utilize to help them escape and cope with the loss of a productive world. Kender’s utilizes this escape after finding out Andrew had died. In this time, she communicates with Andrew and can’t quite determine if what she is experiencing is him trying to communicate with her in the “real” world or if it is her imagination wanting him to be communicating with her. Her distrust of the system leads to questions she must find the answers too.

After the rewrites, I find this story to be much more palatable and would recommend it to post-apocalyptic, dystopian lovers. I definitely give props to J.R. Stewart for taking the readers at their word and amending the heart of the story to become something others may enjoy.
