Of course the kids are skeptical and nervous, they watched all of the adults die, so how did this group of adults survive. They go with them, trying to trust them and partly relieved because they don't want to carry the burden of trying to help all of the younger kids survive. They aren't sure where to even begin.
After arriving on the base, Shane and a few in his group are informed that these adults are actually aliens and that more of their kind are coming to "Harvest" the kids from this planet to help them fight their war and that they all have a 'slave gene' in them allowing the aliens to control their minds.
Shane and 6 others from his group begin training with seven other teams from around the world to learn how to take down these alien ships from the inside. The kids are put through a military like boot camp, with many physical activities, running, push-ups etc, as well as learning to fight each other and playing a more intense game of 'capture the flag'.
This is a great continuation from the first book as it takes on a whole new premise and we watch these kids go from scared and relieved teenagers to soldiers who are willing to sacrifice themselves to save everyone else on the planet once again.
Harris really expands on the characters we were introduced to in the first book and we get to see more bonding and relationships develop amongst them. He also introduces many new characters with their own unique, sometimes likeable and sometimes not, dispositions.
Harris delivers the story in a enjoyable manner and the storyline is engaging and full of action. The details and description really place you inside the story. His creative alien technology is pretty darn cool too!
There were some twists in the book, especially towards the end that are utterly fascinating and have left me wondering....what next? I will be impatiently waiting for book 3 and the continuation of this group of teenagers story. I am curious to see where the story goes and what the truth really is!
Two hundred thousand years ago, the Anunnaki (an alien race) mixed their DNA with that of the Neanderthals. The result? The human race as we know it. Six thousand years later they came back to earth and enslaved the humans. Now they are coming back and intend to enslave the human race for good. After terminating the adult population and leaving the younger, more impressionable inhabitants to live, the human crop is ripe and the Anunnaki are returning to Earth to collect their harvest.
With the help of rebel Anunnaki who have been on earth for quite some time helping our government advance in the technology field, it is now up to seven groups of seven kids each to make sure that the Anunnaki don’t get the soldiers and slaves they need in order for the human race to become the secret weapon they need to turn the age-old war in their favor. Shane, Kelly and the rest of the kids who have been recruited for this suicide mission go through vigorous training that will prepare them to take out the alien spaceships and ensure that the remaining human race does not get in the grips of the Anunnaki.
For this mission, few will live and many will die, but with an epic ending to book two that sheds doubts on the whole situation, questions come up that could change the whole situation for Earth. Who should be trusted and who is telling the truth?
This story is extremely well written and Mr. Harris does an awesome job with his descriptions. You feel as though you are right there with the characters experiencing the blood, sweat and tears. The characters have evolved so much during the course of this series and you can’t help but to care for them and pull for them as they face perhaps the biggest battle of their lives. In between all the action, there is a small bit of romance blooming in the air for our two main characters, Shane and Kelly, and I think it adds depth to the story as Shane struggles with his feelings of wanting to protect Kelly, but not wanting to die along with her.
The Harvest did not disappoint me at all. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time and kept me interested throughout. Mr. Harris left us with another cliffhanger that I did not see coming, so I must wait (rather impatiently) for the next installment of this truly heart-pounding story, but you know what? I know it’s going to be worth the wait and be spectacular, because the first two books have hit it out of the park!
Quite frankly, this series is amazing and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who enjoys an intense action-packed science-fiction thriller.
