    THE AMBER PROJECT:A good YA dystopian is one of my preferred genres, but so very hard to find in this sea of overdone mediocrity, I almost forgot why I enjoyed it so much. This book, The Amber Project, reminded me why it's still one of my favorites.The author brings forward a very rich cast of characters that are lifelike and realistic. These are not 2D cardboard cutouts, or special snowflakes, but ones that have frailties and vulnerabilities. Characters who make mistakes while trying to deal with the hands they are dealt. Whether their qualities are good or bad, you can relate to their way of thinking even if you don't necessarily agree with it.The storyline is broken down into two main plots. One being the main surrounding the genetically engineered children and their plight. The other centers amongst the adults, their play for power, and the sacrifices some are willing to make for progress and the 'greater good'. Both plots are interwoven seamlessly to make a very intriguing and engrossing read. It wraps up enough at the end that it *could* be a standalone, while still leaving a hunger for the sequel. Overall, a book that is extremely hard to put down once you begin it.______________________TRANSIENT ECHOES:It's very rare to find a second book in a series that is as good as the first one. 'Transient Echoes' the second book in the Variant Saga, exceeded my expectations. The book picks up three years later. After the second jolt, Terry has been transported to a strange new world in which variant is in the air. His life is a daily struggle to provide himself food, shelter, and safety against mutated beasts unlike any he's encountered in his previous world.Meanwhile back in the old world, Mei is now a top scientist. With the variant problem solved, new problems have arose. With the help of her team, as well as her best friend John, she is working towards solving these new problems along with what happened to Terry during the second jolt.From the first page until the last, this book will keep your attention and keep you guessing as to how it will end. The storyline is engaging, believable, and filled with unexpected twists and turns you are sure to enjoy. This is something that can be appreciated by teens and adults alike. Written content appropriate for a teenage audience but not written down to 'appeal' to the audience like so many other young adult books. Overall, a wonderful, well written read that can be enjoyed by a wide audience.______________________HOPE EVERLASTING:Once again, JN Chaney has exceeded my expectations in this installment of 'The Variant Saga'. All too often you get what can only be described as filler material in between the first and last books of a series. This is so not the case with this author. Each book takes us on a separate journey, and could be a standalone if not the need for back story from prior.The world building easily immerses you into this author's world. Whether it's the dystopian Earth or the parallel universe of Kant, you can easily imagine yourself within these worlds through his descriptions. Speaking of these two worlds, we get to see what was hinted at in the epilogue of book two 'Transient Echoes', in the meeting of these two worlds. Done in a seamless way with a masterful plot, the story takes off from the very beginning and holds you within its grasp till the very last page. Overall, a flawless addition to the series, and I absolutely cannot wait for the next one to see what's in store for some of my favorite characters!________________________THE VERNAL MEMORY:The city of Everlasting is still reeling from the latest attack at the hands of the rebellion group known as Garden. War is imminent as Garden begins making assassination attempts on the Leadership. In the midst of it all, an unforeseen hand makes its own power play.Back on earth, Mei and her team are working on a cure. A vaccine against the poisonous gas of the Variant air. Unknown to her, there are some that have sinister plans not only for the vaccine, but also for her.After Terry was rescued from being experimented on in Everlasting's underground facility by Jinel Din, he and Lena Sol are working with Garden. Reunified with lost friends, they will sail to distant lands in search of the one thing to end this conflict. Unbeknown to them, some have other plans that include stopping them once and for all.J.N. Chaney's final book in the Variant Saga, THE VERNAL MEMORY, is a non stop thrill ride in which he forgot to include the brakes. Propelled by powerful and heartfelt characters, this final journey takes you deep into a web of deceit and lies. Action paced, filled with suspense, convoluted twists and turns, all leading to an explosive ending. A superb farewell to a fantastic series!

    The Amber Project:Holy dystopia! The Amber Project is a great dystopian journey. This is a genre I love to read and sometimes get a little iffy on how much it will differ from others in the same genre. The author sets the setting so that you are right there. The characters all feel incredibly real. You will connect with them very quickly. Humans are trying to keep their race going while living underground. The earth has been destroyed by the gas, Variant. During the entire story you are given snippets of audio recording from past and present regarding Variant and the various experiments the scientists and the military have been working on. During all of this you live and feel what the genetically altered kids are going through. You see why and how they are taken from their homes and sent to a place where they are trained like soldiers. And finally you experience the changes that they face internally and externally. They are forced to go to the surface for a mission. Many things are unknown and very dangerous. The journey they take and the uprisings going on below the surface are sure to keep you stuck on the story. The ending is very well written. It's enough to wrap up this story but more than enough to keep you waiting on pins and needles for the next. This is my first story by JN Chaney and absolutely, under no circumstances, be the last. Well done!Transient Echoes:Just wow! I need more! This story picks up a few years after The Amber Project. We find out that Terry has been transported to another planet. Mei is working at the ruins but also has her own agenda on trying to find out what happened to Terry. The point of views go back and forth between the unknown planet and Earth. The world building is incredible. Earth is still nothing like we know of it today and the way the author describes the new Earth and the unknown planet that Terry is on is hard to resist. We get to experience Terry's trials as he decides if he is going to continue to survive or not. And on the other hand we see Mei and John go through their own trials deciding if they need to move forward or not, on the low, to try and find out what happened to Terry. Both sides meet great new characters and many new journeys start. I have to warn you that this story is not like The Amber Project. Our characters have grown and are in completely different areas of their lives. I love how Transient Echoes compliments the Amber Project. It's different and exciting! Kudos to JN Chaney for another great story!Hope Everlasting:Oh my gods! The story just keeps getting better and better. Each installment in this series is different from the other one. The world building expands in the greatest way and each new character is full of surprises. All the characters add something unique to the story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. And best of all...who can you trust? Loyalty and trust are huge in this story. Everyone is in search of the truth and an impending war is upon us. Our characters from Earth are right in the middle of the mess. Everlasting is a city full of technology and power. This city cannot breath the Variant air. All of the other natives to Kant are more primitive and with many different religious beliefs. When all of this clashes things really get out of hand. It's a very emotional book that just does not stop. There is the perfect combination of emotion and action to make this an incredible addition to this series. Sending kudos to the author on this one! Well done!The Vernal Memory:An outstanding conclusion to this series! Just wow! The rebellion has made themselves known to our Earthling characters. For me, I found trust and loyalty were major factors in the story in general. Once again I found this to get stronger throughout this story. Throw an intense amount of greed in there and you have the perfect twist to an amazing ending. Terry has set out to help Garden (the rebels) find a weapon to help stop the Leadership in Everlasting. John Finn (Terry's best friend from Earth) is helping Everlasting to locate Garden to bring the rebel leader in. Mei Curie (our other Earth best friend) is working on locating a cure for the Variant air. When all of them end up on different sides of this war the rollercoaster of action and emotion get intense! All of our Earthlings have made special bonds and friendships with natives of Kant. This is a place of the impossible becoming possible. Curiosity and countering traditional thought is what brings this book out on top. The twists and turns in this story are more than enough to justify the late nights spent reading this series. Once again this author has given us another amazing story that makes this series absolutely extraordinary. Bravo!!

    EXCELLENT SCI-FI SERIESThank you for your time and imagination in writing this series. The characters are unbelievably good and the storyline is engaging. I did not want to stop reading, but it still consumed me over 3 1/2 days. I was so glad I had the boxed set, so I could go right to the next book. One theme keep going thru my mind as I continued to read, what if we as humans sought non-lethal ways to wage wars or remove threats to our safety? What if.........?. Thank you, Danny Scott.

    Not my usual choice of genre, but WOW!I read this merely due to a shortage of my usual zombie Apocalypse book options, and boy was I glad! I fell in love/hate with the characters throughout and the writing style was different and appealing. I would recommend these to teens through octogenarian... There's something for everyone in here! Enjoy!

    YA isn't my primary genre, although dystopian futures are a favorite setting. I read this 4-book series very diligently, having been hooked fairly early on by Terry's story. I enjoyed the entire series, although I kept waiting for what I thought of as inevitable betrayal by one or more of Terry's new friends. (Is that me being cynical, or a YA thing that it doesn't happen often? I don't know.)Every once in a while the writing would pull me out of the story briefly, sometimes because of errors that an editor or pre-release reader should have readily caught (Lena's security being dramatically moved to level 9, but then all references thereafter calling it a 5; Mei losing all her hair due to radiation sickness, but then her chewing on a curl of hair only a few days later) or the frequent dramatic chapter endings when John was the current focus ("...he would do everything in his power to protect them. [paragraph break] Whatever the cost.").All in all, however, I found the series a good, enjoyable read with engaging characters and a story I wanted to see the end of (and, indeed, hear more about).

    Great seriesThis was a truly captivating, suspenseful series. It sucked me in to the point where the villains were really making me angry with their treachery. However, the one negative comment I have is that the author or the publisher was leaving large gaps after every few lines so the actual pages of content were a lot less then the page count.

    I liked this series - plenty of different angles, personalities you got to know, decent bit of sci fi! It kept me captured through all 4 books, read one after the other. I look forward to reading more from J N Chaney.

    Very entertainingA good read, the pace was good keeping the level if interest. The length was okay if I felt it a little rushed at the end.Interesting character I would say its aimed at a youth market but those young at heart will enjoy it.

    This One's Got It All!!!The destruction of one world and its resurrection. The finding of a new world and an old friend and an unimaginable future of two worlds becoming one yet remaining unique! The surprises never stop and neither does the action. Wonderful characters that make you want to know each one of them personally. The villains are dastardly and horrible and the heroes incredibly wonderful and kind. This is a rare book one that you will remember fondly.

    The seeds of a good story but serious quality issuesThis series has a fairly solid foundation story-arc wise, but it shows exactly why a good editor is so important in producing quality work.It kind of blows my mind that this guy has a master's in creative writing, because the quality level of the dialog and action is REALLY lacking. Certain phrases ("lording over", "giving him pause", "the hell was that?") are used over and over again, frequently to detrimental effect. Action scenes are clinical, boring, and unbelievable. A lot of dialog is stilted and unnatural, and occasionally characters will say or do something that's in COMPLETE opposition to everything we've been told about them up until that point. Honestly, it was so bad that I started highlighting particularly egregious pages and adding notes as if I were the editor, and despite getting tired of constantly highlighting and commenting and thus skipping large parts, still wound up with almost 400 notes on things that need to be improved.There are also a couple of really glaring issues science-wise, like the fact that "variant" is supposedly a chemical catalyst. Catalysts, no matter how complex, do not do the things variant does, and you cannot make a generic hybrid with living creature and a catalyst. If anything, make it a virus!I've shared my notes and highlights to Good Reads, so if you want examples of what I'm talking about, you should be able to find them there.

    The Variant Saga BoxsetThis was a pretty good box set. It's very unique subject matter makes it very interesting. I would love to say I flew through this series loving every moment, because it had such great potential, but I have to be honest and say in book two I was bored to tears until it picked up at the end. I kept reading because, wow, there is 4 books here to read. I was not too disappointed. There were some more boring parts but not many. The storyline made up for any slow moving parts. The concept of this story is brilliant. I love reading about genetically engineered humans. I think if you can push through some of the slow parts, you'll love this box set.

    I would have sooooo given this set of books a five plus. But, as another reader said, the author needs a better editor. There were a couple places where I really had to work at getting to what the author was saying. But other than that, I was really wowed by these books. The characters were well written and well introduced; and, over time, they matured in a natural and believable manner. I look forward to reading more of the author's work.

    Engaging and convincingChaney builds characters and worlds with a breadth of imagination, curiosity, intrigue and action. I liked the blend of science, technology, mysticism, action and romance. Nothing was overdone, but everything was balanced....and nicely so. I can see these worlds opening doors to more stories and more worlds, and I can’t wait to read them!

    Fun ReadThe story moves along with interesting, although not very alien, aliens. The villians are suitability vilanous and heros, heroic. In all a good inter-dimensional space opera. Fun to read and worth the time.

    Okay I read the entire saga and remain disappointed. Terry was a great character but all the stories summed up a little on the juvenile side. How ever I loved the concept and the thought concept. But to much was left to my imagination.
