Amethyst is a secret team of genetically enhanced humans which is Earth’s greatest defensive weapon. Leading the team of super soldiers is Ember Wilson, a tough woman with a huge chip on her shoulder. The team gets their name from the after effect of the Genesis Project which turned their eyes and even their blood purple.
For decades, Earth has been ravaged by unpredictable weather which began to cause crops to fail. Most of the planet’s food sources have deteriorated. Dr. Clayton Rudo has proclaimed he has the means to save the soil. He has created a weather machine to regulate and help replenish. But Ember knew the truth. He didn’t want to save the planet. He wanted to control it. Amethyst destroyed the machine, but was placed in stasis. Two years later, Rudo recreated the device and has frozen Washington, DC and the west coast of the United States.
General Tom Blanchard brought Amethyst out of stasis to work with an elite Air Force team, led by Major Liam Ross. Tensions between Ember and Liam rise as they butt heads. Can they work together before Earth is completely under ice?
Amethyst Chronicles is an excellent dystopian novel for the young adult audience. There are scenes of adult content, but they aren't explicit. I think it more or less depends on the parent. As a parent I would read ahead to make sure it is suitable to you for your teenager.
I did enjoy the story in general. The female protagonist is perhaps the most hardcore woman I've read about it quite a while. Her past and circumstances are what pull at my heart strings.
Personally, add a bit more length to it, more mystery, and time on the emotional atmospheres of the character's, and I would like it even more.
If your teenager enjoys genre of the sci-fi, dystopian, categories I recommend it. ♡
