    Get them all !

    Yes I read the first and second and I have to get the third. The GMO's (genetically modified organisms) are here to stay. If Hollywood doesn't make a movie from this than they might just be the aliens! Ha
    These books will make you grow our own food or at least make you strongly think about organics. Michael you can be on my trauma team anytime, or maybe I need to be on yours! With all the battles that rage, on I am holding my breath in hopes that all my Fav's live on.

    Recommended reading - a thrill ride that you don't want to miss!

    I was excited to pick up this book because I had read Season of Harvest, the first in the Harvest trilogy, and it was great. The details of the characters brought this thriller to life and left me wanting more.

    Bitter Harvest picks up a year after Season of Harvest ended with Jack Dawson, former FBI agent, and Naomi Perrault, Ph.D., M.D., leader in her field of genetic research, being pulled out of their safe environment, their new names and identities stripped by political forces that take over after the most recent election. That is just the beginning of a tumultuous thrill ride that sees Jack travel to India, and then Russia to fight against the horrors brought to life by the Beta Three seed samples, and brings Naomi close to the man responsible for selling the seeds to agricultural research facilities around the globe as she begins a new job with the firm, Morgan Pharmaceuticals.

    Each chapter leads you to the next, introducing another struggle, another character, another part of the world. It is brilliantly done. The author is able to breathe life into characters so that you become invested. For example, in one paragraph his description and character details will have you completely rooting for the person, and in the next paragraph the character is killed or turns on others because it is genetically altered. Just rips your heart out (figuratively speaking, seriously). The battle between the good guys and the bad is a compelling global event.

    As a cat lover and owner, I appreciate the furry heroes in Hicks trilogy. Even the newly elected President in the story commented, “I’ve always been a dog person, but when I came down here for this meeting I was greeted by half a dozen cats and a brace of Secret Service people wearing thermal imagers.” Cheers to the feline!

    I don’t want to get too far into the story and accidently ruin it for anyone; but just know that when I was reading it I told a friend who is not connected to the internet and does not have a nook or kindle that, “Mark my words, you will hear the name of Michael R. Hicks either through his books, a television series based on his stories, or a major motion picture – somehow you will hear of him.” (I’m buying her a Nook for Christmas.)

    Michael R. Hicks writing style rivals some of my favorite authors; and he has not only been an inspiration to me in pursuing my dream of writing, but the carrot on a stick of how high or how far I need to go. This series could make it to the big screen; I started casting in my head as I was reading.

    I will definitely read another Michael Hicks novel and highly recommend to everyone to read this one.

    Amazing. Thrilling.

    This trilogy is well worth your time. It is a thrilling page turner that makes your heart race. I had a hard time putting it down at night and read all 3 books in four days! I wish there were 20 more in the series. This trilogy's real world implications with its sci-fi twist make it an amazing read. The way the author writes with such a perfect flow leaves you with the thirst for more.

    Very intelligent writing, which seems to be a rarity these days, especially in e-books.
    Great story, vivid descriptions, wonderful characters.
    WELL DONE MICHAEL!

    Yes. You should read this

    The first book was so believable, and could have easily ended as a stand alone novel. I am so glad it didn't.
    The stuffs really hit the fan now and I really hope we humans can stick it out until the end of book 3, because as of now i'm really not sure.
    I will be finding out soon and I hope a ton more people will too just so I can talk about it without ruining all the fun suprises. So far the friends and family have only heard that there are GMOs possibly aliens and to buy it or borrow it soon. Also it's got some pretty darned cool guns

    Really enjoyed this novel

    I really enjoyed this and the first novel in the series. I had a hard time stopping for the evening. I am looking forward to the next in the series. If you like action and/or thriller novels, perhaps you would like this one. This is the first work I have read of this writer and have not found his work in the local library. Give it a try. If you do not like, it you can stop reading it.

    FASCINATING THRILLER

    This second book picked up where the first left off and the adventure rolled along at the same steady pace. An intriguing book that will cause one to question the food we buy in the stores.

    I had no idea how hooked I would become in this trilogy until I immediately bought this second book and anxiously awaiting the third!

    It's a thriller with enough sci fi mixxed with fact that will cause one to ponder what is true and what is a government spin.

    Considering the first book was free, buying the second book was well worth it's low cost.

    more from this reviewer

    Over 900 pages and if I did not need to sleep I would have read

    Over 900 pages and if I did not need to sleep I would have read it in 1 day. As it turned out it took me just over 2 days. FANTASTIC, believable, and could very well happen to us. Wish I could give it 10 stars ********** ! One of the 10 best books I have ever read ( Out of over 2000 ). TerBec, TMI

    A must read.

    A very engaging thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The research done by the writer makes the story so plausible that you become lost in the story and a warning; you will lose track of time because you won't be able to put this down.
