The Ingenious, and the Colour of Life by Julie

indie ebook cover

Seven children born with a genius gene.
One professor that connects them all.
Hundreds of forgotten graves.
Zero explanation.

A unique group of teenagers - they should have been celebrated worldwide as outstanding products of bio-technology, but instead, they are abandoned and anonymous. An ordinary girl next door, a homeless boy rummaging through rubbish, a pampered child of a well-to-do family - all but forgotten, until the mysterious disappearance of one of the children brings out of hiding the man that connects them all – Professor Harald Wolff, the geneticist who created them. No longer the distinguished scientist he once was; he is now blind, broken, and a recluse.

Brought together, the remaining children's abilities evolve in unusual and astounding ways. When forced to confront an unknown enemy, the full potential of their genius is unlocked. But exceptional as they are, they must learn the dangers of being too clever for their own good, and that they are just one small strand in the complex web of life.
No ordinary tale of good vs evil, this story warns of the evil that lurks inside us all, and our struggle to triumph over it with good. And so the Ingenious children must combine their unique gifts to combat the evil within – resulting in an epic battle of the world’s greatest minds.

J.Y. Sam's YA/NA sci-fi debut is a fascinating mix of human nature, science, and the natural world, all combined into a younger, cerebral 'Inception'.

A very different kind of young superhero, not out to save the world, just themselves.

About The Author...

indie author



Sadly, the characters in J.Y. Sam's books are far more interesting than she is! She's married, has a beautiful if somewhat crazy daughter, a thoroughly sensible son, and a rather... shall we say, 'unique' Italian husband. She lives a quiet life working at home, surrounded by her cat, Phoebe, her duck, Rosie, four java finches, and a shoal of rapidly multiplying tank fish. Worryingly, she chats much more with her animals (they don't answer back) than with her family...

It took around five years to write her first book 'The Ingenious', and now that it's published, she's hoping that the gestation period for books 2 and 3 in the trilogy will be much shorter! Otherwise, she and her one fan will probably die of old age... And she cannot, and must not, leave an incomplete trilogy - or the universe will almost certainly implode. So watch this space...
