The Ingenious, and the Colour of Life by J. Y. Sam
The Ingenious Trilogy Book 1
A personal message from the author:
We love superheroes, but I wanted to create types with special abilities that used their minds, rather than just muscle. My story depicts flawed teenagers who gradually discover the amazing and unique gifts they have, how they grapple with using them, as well as finding a much-needed bond, one with each other, that becomes their greatest strength.
It is a fascinating mix of human nature, science, and the natural world, all combined into a younger, cerebral ‘Inception'.
— J. Y. Sam
Seven children born with a genius gene.
One professor that connects them all.
Hundreds of forgotten graves.
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. They are 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 unexpected ways. 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.
