Now there are a lot of different subgenres in regards to sci-fi. In fact, Amethyst Chronicles has been referred as three different ones (by three different people of course) but they couldn't be farther from the truth.
dystopia/dɪsˈtoʊ pi ə/
Examples would be Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, or 1984 by George Orwell to name a few.
Amethyst Chronicles doesn't fit this list.
Not Amethyst Chronicles.
That brings to the question then: What is Amethyst Chronicles? Simple. It's a futuristic sci-fi romance novella series. Utopian. It takes place one thousand years after the end of the Mirror series. Granted, the first does deal with a scientist using a weather machine to freeze certain parts of the world, there's been no apocalypse, it mostly takes place on Earth, and the society on a whole is pretty happy.
"We have blasters instead of guns. Holoscreens instead of TVs. Transporters instead of cars. The world's military has been unified into one. Instead of warring countries, we have a global council. There aren't any homeless in the streets. Poverty has been abolished. Diseases and illness are contained. It's a big deal if someone breaks a law. We all work together toward a common goal and that's to make our planet the best it possibly can be. That's the world I'm from."
That was a little taste from Amethyst Chronicles: Past's Mirror which I am currently working on. Doesn't sound like a bad place to live, right? Too bad we would have to wait until 3018 to see it. I, for one, sure wish it would be sooner.
