I'm guessing there must be a sequel (I didn't read The Fourth Descendant either and have no idea how it ties in) that brings everything to a conclusion, but the ending of The Seventh Seed seemed to leave the outcome in limbo despite 25 years of preparation. If you like dystopian insurgency, this one lacks heavy trauma, and it's too tame for a thriller, but nonetheless, it deserves an extra ½☆ for the underlying concept and another ¼☆ for the editing and nearly flawless proofing, so I'll round up.
That being said, in all honesty, this is a really well-written book; an honest-to-goodness page-turner, from the beginning until the heart-stopping end with government/Big Pharma after the our hero/s the entire time!
And it all starts with bees...dead bees.
I am quite sure there will be other reviews that will go into more of the story...the synopsis gives you an idea. My advice is simply read this book if you are after a rousing-good read!!
As if ripped from our present-day news cycle, The Seventh Seed is a novel filled with political intrigue and the manipulation of a futuristic government entity called LifeFarm.
Take a moment and think about the consequences for humanity if the world’s food supply was controlled by a single corporation. The opportunity for the oppression of regular people in the face of greed would be unprecedented. No one would be immune. Even the scientists would be under scrutiny.
So, when a young scientist named Javier, part of the team researching the beehive collapse across the world uncovers a virus carried by bugs that appear to be resistant to insecticides, you would assume this would be cause for celebration. However, LifeFarm doesn’t want the information on the virus or the vaccine to get out. Instead, Javier becomes a target, and his life is on the line.
The virus spreads and leads to the deaths of many. For Javier, the virus means that the possibility of developing a vaccine which would cure the sick now. With that purpose in mind, Javier sets off to develop a cure.
Hang on to your seat, because this book takes off in a whirlwind of drama and intrigue that doesn’t end until you read the last page. The Seventh Seed is a sequel to Maruska’s, The Fourth Descendent, but could stand alone as details from the first novel are skillfully intertwined into the second book. I loved the high-octane action, and the political conspiracy was well thought out.
There are a couple twists in this book I never saw coming which are always a pleasant surprise. If you love fast-paced mysteries filled with suspense, you’re going to love this book. I couldn’t put it down!
