The Compendium (The Variant Conspiracy Book 2) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Another reviewer recommended reading book one first, as this book two is part of a larger story arc that started in book 1 and possible culminates in book 3, assuming the series doesn’t go on from there. I’d have to say that’s good advice, but for the most part, I was able to get swept up in the story anyway.
The travel through exotic lands lends a travel-lit dimension to the story, which I always appreciate. More could probably have been made with this component of the story, still, on-location elements can’t help but sneak in.
In this installment a group of young ex-employees of Innoviro horrified by the companies true intentions band together to try to stop the plan to create natural disasters only varients will survive.
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.
Make sure you read the first book to really understand everything that is going on.
*was provided a copy for an honest review by the author all opinions are my own*
Irina Proffer and her variant friends are on the run from her father, Ivan Krylov and his company Innoviro. As her and her brother Ilya begin to piece together what her father is working on they begin a journey from Vancouver to Seattle in order to see what he is working on next.
When it is clear that her father is planning on setting off an earthquake in San Francisco the group must work together to stop it. Yet it seems like her father's henchmen are always one step ahead and could somebody they trust be working against them?
I enjoyed this book and it was interesting to see how the group worked together to get out of situations, relying on each of their strengths with their variants.
Irina pushes Jonah away as she is worried that her strength decreases that of Jonah and the two must figure out a way for Jonah to remain safe. The group definitely has a lot of battles still ahead of them.
It's super interesting to see how the author adapts the variants and the ideas that she comes up with for Ivan. They are different and it'll be great to see how everything goes down in the next book!
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!
I was gifted a copy of this book by the author, in exchange for an honest review.
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. Reviewed by Michael
