J.N. Chaney I'd love to revisit the series again in the future. Perhaps once my current series, Renegade Star, is over :)
J.N. Chaney Yes, it's set to release soon. Probably June 4th or 5th, depending on how slow Amazon is to publish it :)

"Fantastic

This is the best book yet in this series. I love the characters and can't wait to see what they do next. If you like a great syfi/space opera then I recommend you read this series."
The Variant Saga Boxed Set by J.N. Chaney
"Exciting page turner

This saga is wonderful. It shows how people can overcome obstacles by working together. The characters may not have the depth of some writers but they seem very real as they go about their lives in parallel universes. Most enjo..." Read more of this review »

“That’s the illusion they preach, the trick you end up believing is real. They tell you true power is dictated by the dictator, because he lives in the ivory tower with his finger on the trigger, but the secret they keep, the part they refuse to tell you during your adolescent indoctrination…is that none of that is true. “Real power,” she said, “isn’t dealt in bullets, darlings, but in words.”
J.N. Chaney, The Amber Project

“You bring a frozen girl on my ship, it becomes my business.”
J.N. Chaney, Renegade Star

“I scoffed. “A fighting nun smuggles a frozen girl on my ship and tells me it’s complicated. Lady, how much worse can it get?”
J.N. Chaney, Renegade Star

“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”
Bruce Lee

“When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth......

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself."

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.”
Kahlil Gibran, Le Prophète
