"I was skeptical about this novel. Would I really be able to get drawn in to a story about a band of renegades trying to save the world's food supply? Well, the short answer is yes.

    !

    First...to the long winded posters who reveal plots of the books and ruin it for others, know than bn has been contacted and they do not like that u ppl are revealing and ruining books. They will investigate and with luck, u will b banned and rightfully so. Now....the book was a thriller and scary to think it could happen. Some of it was a little deep and i had to re-read parts to understand, but overall it was an edge of your seat thrill ride. Would make a good movie!

    Entertainingly educational fast paced read!

    I wasn't sure what to expect other than this was a book about GMOs be an author who wrote a cat (just like mine) as a main character. My fri ends at Coastal Conversations' blog on wordpress recommended this as one of their monthly picks which is how it made it onto my reading list.

    I found the author had a light hand and was adept at using his skills to make some educational and entertaining social commentary in his narrative. His fleshing out of his characters gave me a full picture while keeping me guessing about each character's motivations. The explanation of the prevalence of GMOs in our world was unexpected and fascinating and terrifying.

    The fast paced plot and well written climax kept me up until the wee hours wanting to find out what happened next. The explosive ending left me wanting more and with the opening left, I hope Mr. Hicks follows this novel up with more of the story of Agent Dawson and his faithful sidekick Alexander.

    Even for those who might shy away from this one because of the implication of "sci-fi", I suggest you put your preconceptions aside and give this one a chance. I think you'll be glad you did.

    Holy Cow! I had trouble breathing because the suspense/action of this thriller was intense. Very, very interesting premise. In the Preface, the author was talking about GMOs. And at first I thought he was serious - GMOs are good for you - everyone knows that. Well, he was being very subtle in his sarcasm, because the premise of the story is scary. Great fiction. Great writing and terrific characters.

    Exciting, fast-paced crime/mystery novel with elements of scifi

    The story grabs you from the first chapter and I found it hard to put down as I had to find out what happened next! Interesting characters, fascinating subject, and a murder investigation hampered by needing to know who to trust. I would be interested in the further adventures of Jack Dawson.

    This book seemed well written, but was so gory I only read 45 pages out of 1114.

    This had very high reviews and a wonderful premise. It seemed extremly well edited for a free book. I was only able to read 45 pages of the story. The novel is about 1114 pages long. What I read was very good and it really piqued my intrest. Unfortunately, I had had a very stressful day and the extreme gory description of a man's murder really upset me. I had to archive this book for a later attempt to read it. Things like this usually do not bother me, but this was very graphic indeed. I was doing pretty well until the line, "he was alive while they did this to him" was made. This book is for adult men and women, who can handle very graphic, violent details. In a few days I will try it again.

    Not so sure that this book is fiction! LOL GMO's are real and in the real world the so called scientist responsible for GMO's are not human. They have no heart, no soul, no moral compass, they only think of control and destruction. If you're interested in the subject or you just like sci fi, don't miss this one. I couldn't put this book down. It keeps you on edge wondering what will happen next and yes it's a little creepy but a big Bravo to Michael Hicks for including the GMO subject ( and for giving a cat a staring role).

    I'd give this book 4.5 stars if 4.5 was available. I wouldn't give any book 5 unless it was brilliant.

    I can't believe I got this book for free and then enjoyed it so much. It's fasting moving without meandering subplots. Maybe it isn't haughty taughty literature but it's still well written and fun.

    If you like the type of movie that has aliens' heads exploding but you're enough of a thinker to enjoy a good novel as much as a movie, you'll like this book.

    Good book that could use a little trim

    Season of the Harvest is a book with some really high highs and some sluggish low points, on of which is in the beginning and then a bit father in. That shouldn't deter anybody from picking this book up though. What starts out as a standard thriller quickly takes a sci-fi/horror turn without losing the feel that it had already set up. The characters are solid and there is clearing a lot of research into both GMOs and all the other technology that is in the book. I was turning pages and staying up till two in bed with my book light every night so that is probably the best praise I can give any book.

    GMO's. Genetically Modified Organism. This book will make you think twice about what you eat and where it came from. Gave me chills a couple of times!

    A Must Read!

    Genetically modified foods and aliens! Who would have ever thought to put them together. It is a fact that should you name the companies that take seeds and add DNA they will absolutely break you if you ever complain about them. GMO's are in 80% of all products in the grocery store! Michael has sheer and entertaining genius to come up with aliens, yes the little green guys being behind it all. You can not put this down when the characters are in the middle of a fight for their lives. By the way, what about rates for autism up 810% in the last 15 yrs! Think about that one?
