Publisher's Summary

Everything can be hacked, even the truth.

Will this fact set Sienna free or plunge her into an even bigger lie?

Sienna Lewis lives in a world constantly threatened by a hacktivist group known as SWARM. After SWARM executes its deadliest attack yet, Sienna and her three college friends learn they have been chosen for the ELIXIR Project - a master plan designed to overthrow SWARM - and participation is mandatory.

As she faces the deadly challenges of the Project, Sienna confronts layers of conspiracies that force her to question everyone she trusts and everything she believes about her friends, her parents' untimely deaths, and herself-all while staying one step ahead of SWARM. In this fast-paced, near-future thriller, will love and loyalty have time to catch up with Sienna? Or will she crack under the pressure of a future already chosen for her?

Awesome Naration...Super Cool Story

What made the experience of listening to Elixir Project the most enjoyable?

There are a lot of characters, but this narrator really pulls it off.

What other book might you compare Elixir Project to and why?

The Hunger Games or Divergent. Young adult, teen fiction. Thriller from start to finish with lots of unexpected twists that keep you wanting more.

What does Heather Masters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hearing the voices of all the different characters made this easier to follow than reading it. The pace of the reading is a little slower than I'm used to when listening to non-fiction, but I'm glad because the plot is complex and I like the extra time to let it sync in since I listen while driving.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Just the possibility that what SWARM is doing through the dark net could become a reality someday makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck.

Any additional comments?

I not really a fiction person because plots can become too complex and often the story line gets a little too slow for me...there is nothing slow about Elixer Project. I found myself upset every time I got to my destination and had turn it off and quit listening. I also love that there isn't any fowl language. A big thank you to the author for that.

Unlike nothing else I have experienced

What did you love best about Elixir Project?

That the addition of audio to the book lifts the story to another level of enjoyment.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Elixir Project?

Tilda graphically describing how her son was tortured and eventually killed in front of her.

Which scene was your favorite?

The naming ceremony as each cleric dies to their given name to instead take up their chosen name for the sake of the world.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No the first time I wanted to let the experience linger. The next time I may.

Any additional comments?

The moment I heard this book was going to be available as an audiobook I knew I had to have it. I am so grateful I do.

ONE OF THE MOST INTRIGUING BOOKS I HAVE READ.

Kary has done it again. With his new book Elixir project. From intriguing questions I have asked myself about technology being hacked to being personally hacked myself Kary bring a version of that reality to life in these pages. The characters are the perfect age to allow for all of the drama, suspense and excitement in this book. I am having a great time listening on Audible and reading the Elixir Project. Ty Kary for another successful book!!!!!

I love sci-fi and fantasy to relax, but I learned.

I bought this book because I believe in the author, also I read sci-fi and fantasy to relax.

As expected the story is intriguing, but what can be learned about reaching your potential and the value it can bring to the world is exciting. As I am still in the fledgling stages of my own new adventure, I hope to absorb the understanding and live with the power of Flow.

Amazing narration

The story had many excellent aspects to it. I enjoyed the Science and the science fiction of it. I was towards the end anxious to finish.

Very interesting story with a lot of TRUTH.

The plot was very creative and interesting. The story really kept me engaged and making predictions, which was fun. It's also full of very useful truths that can prove effective in real life, not just in fiction. Excellent book.

Provocative and suspenseful

Kary Oberbrunner does a masterful job of projecting current reality (terrorist attacks, the dark web, neurobiological research, widespread computer hacking, etc) and weaving them into a tale that, while highly imaginative and innovative, is very believable. Heather Masters makes the characters come alive as they struggle to keep from being "hacked" so that they can save themselves and the world. The book leaves you wanting more....

Has your mind been hacked?

If you could sum up Elixir Project in three words, what would they be?

This story is so scary because you don't know what's real and what's made-up sci fi. It's absolutely awesome. It starts slow, but then it's pure fire.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The main character, Sienna Lewis.

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to list, but there's one scene where they are competing in a pool of cerebral fluid. I can't imagine how nasty that must be!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Have you been hacked?

Any additional comments?

It's so hard for me to describe this book. Not only is it a sci-fi thriller, but now I'm questioning so many things in this world. And I'm wondering if my mind has been hacked. It's hard to describe "hack" without listening to this book, but the concept is incredible. This will definitely be made into a movie soon! So worth it! Phenomenal characters, scenes, and story!
