Transient Echoes by J.N. Chaney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Review of TRANSIENT ECHOES (VARIANT #2) By JN Chaney
In this sequel to THE AMBER PROJECT (VARIANT #1), author JN Chaney weaves a blend of futuristic science fiction with Dystopiana, survivalism, and otherworldly fantasy. After an alien gas known as Variant destroyed most of humanity in the 22nd century, leaving only a small enclave to live underground, genetic engineering and improved technology have finally allowed human scientists and military explorers to live aboveground, provided they remain a safe distance from the residue radiation caused by the Second Jolt. Meanwhile, the hybrid child Terry, who closed the Rift which allowed in Variant, is exiled unwillingly and unintentionally to a farflung world where survival is equivalent to the life experienced by earthly cavepersons. An extraordinary vivid and poetic imaging keeps the story turning.
