The Famine may be over, but the Resistance has just begun.
When Remy Alexander is fifteen, her older sister is murdered in a cold-blooded classroom massacre. When the Okarian Sector hides the truth behind the attack, Remy's family goes underground to join the clandestine and growing Resistance movement. Now, three years later, Remy is beginning to find clues about why her sister was murdered. But at the same time, Valerian Orlean, the boy Remy once loved, is put in charge of hunting and destroying the Resistance. As Vale fights to protect his people and Remy seeks just
ice for her sister, the two are set on a collision course that could bring everyone together - or tear everything apart.
THE SOWING, the first book in The SEEDS Trilogy, is set in a post-apocalyptic world. In the wake of environmental destruction and a devastating population crash, the Okarian Sector was forced to fight to establish a civil society in a chaotic world. After the loss of seed biodiversity in the destruction of the Old World, genetic modification and artificial agricultural techniques are the Sector’s only choice. Science reigns supreme. The Okarian Agricultural Consortium, a corporation dedicated to perfecting these modified seeds and providing only the best food and medicine to its citizens, becomes the government’s most important arm. But even the purest gold is tarnished over time, and the Sector’s noble goals devolve into manipulation, control, and oppression.
THE SOWING was a fast-paced, action-packed dystopian book that had me on the edge of my seat! When it comes to dystopian books, I don't know what it is, but if it's well written and action-packed like this one was, I crave them and need more of their thrilling adventure! And THE SOWING was way better then I thought it would be, and I'm so glad that I gave it a shot!!
I was really surprised when I found out that this book was written by 3 different authors! A mother and 2 daughter team did a fantastic job at forming the same voice and rounding it out enough to make the reader think their reading one author! 3 brilliant ladies that I will for sure read again, and again!!!
After 15 year old Remy's older sister Tai is murdered in a classroom massacre, her and her family leave the The Okarian Sector and go underground to join the Resistance!
Fast forward 3 years:
Remy, now 18 and living underground in the resistance, is ready for answers to why and who was behind her sisters murder. And she intends to get them!
Vale, the other POV is chancellors son, and is fighting to end the Resistance. But everything gets complicated when Remy, one of the members of the Resistance who he is suppose to be hunting down comes back into his life, and all his buried feelings come rushing back!
Remy will fight for answers and justice for her sister, and Vale will fight for his people and what he believes in. But when Remy and Vale's world collide, it will test the boundaries of loyalties, honesty and just how far love will take a person!
I really enjoyed this first book in THE SEEDS Trilogy, and can't wait to dive back into Remy and Val's story!!
