More About the Author

Born in 1963, Michael Hicks grew up in the age of the Apollo program and spent his youth glued to the television watching the original Star Trek series and other science fiction movies, which continue to be a source of entertainment and inspiration. Having spent the majority of his life as a voracious reader, he has been heavily influenced by writers ranging from Robert Heinlein to Jerry Pournelle and Larry Niven, and David Weber to S.M. Stirling. Living in Florida with his beautiful wife, two wonderful stepsons and two mischievous Siberian cats, he now writes novels full-time.

Another great book from Michael R. Hicks. This should be made into a film. It would be a best seller.

I would recommend this book to anyone. You don't have to be into SciFi to enjoy. Well written and keeps you wanting to read more. Can't put it down until it's finished. Just like all his other books. Keep them coming Michael.

A little bit of a build up which took a while to get the story going but was well worth waiting for. Great story idea almost like an old horror film, playing on fears you don't realise you have.

I'll be honest up front and say that I really enjoy the writing of Michael R Hicks. Amazing given the fact that until about a year ago I had never even heard of him. So thanks to the Kindle for bringing the worlds created by this author to my eyes.

I started this book after reading the first six books about those pesky Kreelans, I still have more of those books to read but decided that I wanted to take a look at a different story.

So what's it all about. A group of Aliens (harvesters) hidden away in society trying to manipulate the crops we are growing to enable them to create more of there kind and basically take over the earth.

Okay there's a bit more too it but you get the gist.

Then there's the good guys, the Earth Defense Society, doing there best to stop the Aliens but basically being blamed for all the bad things that the aliens are doing to take over the world.

Then there are those who are fooled into thinking the aliens are actually helping the human population and get manipulated into assisting.

Still with me, okay then buy the book, in fact download it as it's probably still free.

It's a good story, with some good engaging characters, and it's the start of another trilogy by an author who seems able to spin a good yarn.

I enjoyed it, and have already started on book 2.

You won't be disappointed, but if you are remember this, it probably didnt cost you any real money just time, and this was a good way of spending my time.

Season of the Harvest had an odd combination of writing styles but it worked. It was as if a sci-fi fantasy author wrote a thriller, which is kind of what happened. The description he used throughout is similar to what you can find in his In Her Name series, but on a toned down level, more fitting for a thriller.

The story follows Jack Dawson, an FBI agent investigating the mysterious and gruesome death of his friend and co-worker. He and his friends, new and old, take on corporations, outlandish groups, and other countries to fight against a nightmarish truth, the end of the world could be closer than they realized. Plot twists and turns leave the reader not knowing which character to love, which one to hate, or even which one to trust.

Very fast paced with engaging characters. Character development was wonderful. From one moment to the next, I couldn't tell what the characters were going to do, yet when they did something out of the ordinary, it was within the character's personality to do so.

The only issue I had was at one point during the middle, the writing felt bogged down by description. While description is something I love, especially with the amount of epic fantasy I read, I could have drawn a map of the building the characters were in. While not necessarily a bad thing, it was the only place in the book where I felt removed from the story.

It was a great read and I would recommend it to any lover of thrillers, especially with how the content relates to goings on in modern day humanity.

Season of the Harvest is an interesting technothriller. A seemingly crazy group purport that the world is being taken over by aliens. We follow an FBI agent into his investigation into a friends untimely death while he is at a research facility for genetically modified maize grains.

SPOILER ALERT
It's a tad convoluted as we see how this death was at the hands of shape shifting aliens who are attempting to take over the world by modifying human DNA through GM food. Our protagonist is soon torn between his FBI connections and his desire to investigate his friends death. The crazy people turn out to be less crazy than anticipated and hole up inside a bunker where they prove the aliens are real. They can take human form, but when electrocuted they revert to their alien appearance. It becomes clear that the aliens have an insidious presence inside not only the FBI but the White House as well, and the rebel group have to race to save the remaining safe seed stock in the worlds major seed bank vaults as the aliens attempt to destroy it and flood the market with GM stock.

It's an incredibly original title, and well worth a read but does require suspension of your critical faculties.

Forced myself to finish this book, take away the thin layer of sci-fi and you have a cast of shiney people. The constant imagery explaining exactly which gun, type of bullet is being used and Afghanistan references became a bore the sci-fi could have been so much more in-depth but as easily could have been switched to well anything from a Buddhist monk to a terrorist nut job. Will not recommend nor read the next.
