Review of Harvest Day by Tamar Sloan & Heidi Catherine

Humans saved bees from extinction…
and created the deadliest threat we’ve seen yet
The loss of bees was heralded as the sixth wave of extinction. Economies crashed. Ecosystems collapsed. Wars were waged as countless starved. Luckily, humans were able to alter bees’ genetic code to deal with the hazards of pesticides and disease.

Inadvertently making their venom fatal to humans.

River grew up in the Green Zone, a haven for those who are Immune. Bees are free to fly, pollinating their prolific crops. Echo was raised in the Dead Zone where bees are exterminated so vulnerable humans like her can live. Stealing from the heavily guarded Green Zone is a necessary part of survival.

River and Echo are both in their seventeenth year. They’re both about to have their immunity tested. And they’re both about to have their futures forever altered.

Ultimately, they’re about to become part of the final fight for human survival. Are bees really the enemy they need to defeat? Or is mankind a far greater threat…
My Review:  5 STARS
I picked this up because I usually adore Sloan’s work, and was in the mood for a nice dystopian and boy was I right! From the first page, you’re thrown into a world where immunity means you either live like a king, or die in squalor. I adored Echo, and loved River too, the love story was perfectly pitched and as you went through all the hurdles with them, you’re hooked and desperate to know more. And that ending had me wanting to read book two, and I read this one on release day in one sitting. Highly, highly recommended!
