The Variant Conspiracy


Best Laid PlansSoul Mate Publishing - May 2016 - Ages 18 & up

"This book is kind of like Fantastic Four meets Divergent"

Irina Proffer leaves small-town life behind following visions inspired by a strange deck of tarot cards. She discovers a world of fringe genetic science and supernatural mystery. Working for Innoviro Industries, Irina is drawn in by a powerful first love and dangerous questions about the nature of the company’s business.

Reviews for In Irina's Cards:


"This is a highly complex, intriguing and decidedly different story, one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. It is told from the point of view of Irina Proffer who starts having visions after purchasing a strange deck of tarot cards. 
... This is an intriguing start to a science fiction mystery thriller with a little romantic interest added to the mix. It will be interesting to see how this develops, especially after how this one ends!"
- Splashes into Books, September 2016

"I enjoyed this book a great deal. There is a good balance of adventure, discovery and her making friends, and navigating relationships.  Are all the questions that were asked, answered by the end of this book?  No. Some readers have strong opinions about whether each book should have resolution, even if they are part of a series. You probably know where you fall on this spectrum. If you like science fiction, or have dreamed of having a super power, I think you will enjoy this series."
- Lilac Reviews, August 2016
 
"I thoroughly enjoyed In Irina’s Cards ... I was sucked into the story and stayed up way too late reading it because I had to know what happened next.
Because this is the first in the series, do not expect a clear cut ending—there is a bit of a cliffhanger that leads you into book two—which I will be starting this weekend!"

- Long and Short Reviews, August 2016

"This book is kind of like Fantastic Four meets Divergent ... it is a steady compilation of suspense, drama, and a dab of romance. I can’t wait until the next one comes out. I am excited to see what it will bring as this story progresses!"
- Addicted to Reviews, June 2016

"I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series to see what happens next!"
- Rebecca Austin, June 2016

"I believe that this would be a satisfying read for lovers of this genre and look forward to reading follow up books in this series."
- Twisted Book Curmudgeon, June 2016

"This is a complex, intriguing story."
- Liza O'Connor, June 2016


"An excellent start to a new series. I would recommend this book to fans of series like Divergent, or just of scifi romance in general, and I look forward to reading the sequel."

Reviews for The Compendium:


"Overall, I loved this book and it makes me want to get the first one and the remaining books in the series when I can. If you enjoy series like X-Men and things like that as comics, give this author’s Variant series a shot."
- Uncaged Book Reviews, December 2016

"This attention getter rushes out of the gate at full speed, pulling the reader into its intense storyline!
... The author did a nice job of blending sci-fi with concerns and fears of current times. The well-developed story is peppered with plenty of conflict and just enough romantic angst to keep the reader emotionally attached, achieving a satisfactory ending while setting up the story for the next leg of the exciting journey. Great job, Ms. Hart!"

- InD'tale Magazine, October 2016  

"There are many interwoven threads running through the story, with each scene brought to life in the reader’s imagination by the author’s brilliant portrayal, making it feel like you’re actually there, a witness to the events and interactions.
... This fast paced, enthralling series covers so many genres! It includes aspects of science fiction, paranormal, suspense, thriller and romance in a real page turner which continues from where the first novel in the series, In Irina’s Cards, finished. This is an action packed sequel that I thoroughly enjoyed and a great addition to the series. I highly recommend reading this series in the correct sequence as each book builds on events from the previous one and the ending to this left me keen to read the sequel as soon as possible!"

- Splashes into Books, September 2016 

"A well-written, imaginative read and the author does well to make each of the many characters distinctive. Using their paranormal abilities the group track the company's bosses across Canada but always seem to be one step behind, partly due to their betrayal by members of their group.
A fast paced read, it ends with their pursuit taking them to London. So although an enjoyable read in it's own right the book is very much part of a series."

- Maria, September 2016 

"I love this series. The second book picks up pretty close to where In Irina's Cards left off. It kept me reading until I was finished. I thought the pacing was good and steady. The character development was well done as well. I am eagerly awaiting the 3rd installment of the series."
