Product Description

Product Description

A year has passed since the Sutter Buttes incident. Jack Dawson and Naomi Perrault, having failed to find the elusive bag of lethal New Horizons seed, are fired and the secret agency established under President Curtis to study the harvesters is shut down.

As the harsh controls on biotechnology and genetics research imposed under President Curtis are rescinded by the new President, Naomi is recruited by a self-made billionaire in the pharmaceuticals industry who wants her to continue her original work in developing a food-based delivery system for vaccines. She is thrilled until she discovers that her new colleagues have made far more progress than should have been possible, unless they had samples of the seed from New Horizons to reverse engineer.

While Naomi confronts a horrifying revelation in Los Angeles, Jack heads to India to discover what happened to Dr. Vijay Chidambaram, one of the Earth Defense Society scientists who returned to his homeland after the organization was disbanded. Left in critical condition after a hit and run accident that killed one of his colleagues, Vijay sends Jack to a remote village where he uncovers a terrifying secret.

And in Russia, Army Captain Sergei Mikhailov and his men are sent on a mission into the heart of the country’s grain belt to find out what happened at a shadowy facility where everyone has mysteriously disappeared.

None of them understand the true extent of the horror that is about to be unleashed across the globe, a nightmare they may not be able to stop…

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first! 27 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the 1st book I actually purchased this one (not like me at all)! I was not disapointed. The story starts a year after the 1st book ended. The story never lets up and again goes hell for leather to a climactic ending. There were some really nice dramatic twists, a couple of which I just didn't see coming at all. I was completely engrossed in the story and found it really difficult to put down.

There is far more action in this book than in the first, but it was true to the nature of the story and felt right for what you are being told.

I can not wait for the third book in this series - come on Michael publish it soon - I can't bear the suspense any longer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes another great novel from Michael Hicks 22 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I've not read a Hicks novel that I haven't loved, and this is no exception. As usual, Hicks puts his characters through the ringer, leaving you on the edge of your seat. In this sequel, the characters we've grown to love in Season of the Harvest continue their quest to save the world. Without giving any of the story away, it is another roller coaster ride, the tension (almost stress) rising throughout to its nail-biting conclusion.

The only disappoint is that the third instalment is not yet available! What are we to do?! Keep on writing Mr Hicks!

The first book in the series was great and I couldn't wait to read the second. It certainly lived up to its promise and I can't wait for all the others to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great sequel 26 Mar 2013
By Hooty
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is definitely one for all the conspiracy theorists out there who believe that Gm is not a good step. Scary and fast paced, a thoroughly enjoyable read. A great follow on to the first in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Continuation 14 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An excellent second book in a threateningly believable 'almost apocalypse' series. The action is considerably faster paced than in the first book, which well suits the developing story line and sub-plots.
The characters continue to grow and develop along with the action and Michael is certainly not averse to 'bumping off' whoever he deems necessary to further the plot. It certainly works for me and I am on to the third book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good read 21 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Michael Hicks writes a good tale. Characters and plot are given enough depth to draw in the reader without detracting from the pace of a good sci-fi story. He keeps the science believable and doesn't bring in ad-hoc extra 'toys' to get him out of plot difficulty in the way some authors do. I'll read the next book and expect it to be up to his usual standard.
