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!
The only disappoint is that the third instalment is not yet available! What are we to do?! Keep on writing Mr Hicks!
It took me a while to get in to Season of the Harvest, book 1 in the Trilogy, back in 2011. But once in, I found a fast moving, modern, scary crime thriller, with the added zest of a bit of science fiction thrown in to mix things up.
Summary The Harvest books are dealing with a deadly and intelligent insectoid like creature who are able to take over a human body and perfectly mimic the person taken over! It is not known where these creatures originated from, whether they have been lying dormant on earth for millennia or whether they have come from space. What is known is that they can be killed but normally only after they have wiped out 98% of those trying to kill them and as is the way in these situations, some escape..... In book 1 the Harvesters, as we have come to call them, could not reproduce and were working on a way to genetically modify crop seeds that once planted and turned into food for the human population would rewrite the DNA of humans turning them into Harvesters. Jack Dawson and Naomi Perrault and the rest of the EDF along with the US Govt. who finally came to believe in the threat, thought they had solved that problem ........
Bitter Harvest, as one would expect, takes up where the first book left off with out heroes who were declared terrorists by the US Government having been giving their own Agency to track down the missing bag of genetically modified bag of grain seed. It has been a year now and they still haven't managed it.Read more ›
The plot seems to leap from one end of the globe to the next without regard for logistics or realistic timing.
The characters time after time flounder into one deadly encounter after another - perhaps very brave ; but little depth given to the situation or recognition of how individuals would actually behave as humans.
I found I just didn't believe the characters or care much for them.
Plot wise, the whole shape shifting bit scross genre is wearing a bit thin in terms of novelty and is overused as a convenient plot mechanism. Could have done with more character development, seemed that aliens were simply one dimensional "out to kill all humans and must take over our planet" types. No explanation as to why.
