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 justice 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.
Yes, yes, yes!
Love, I absolutely LOVED this book! Maybe it's because I haven't read a ton of Dystopia type books, unless they include zombies, but The Sowing sucked me in from page one.
Remy was smart, resourceful and a free thinker. She has a mission from the beginning, and though obsticales are put in the way, she keeps focused regardless. She isn't one of those main characters who relies on a male, and I for one find that to be an absolutely amazing quality in a characters. Don't get me wrong, having some eye candy always helps, but independence is something that can't be broke in my eyes.
It was really interested to see how these authors manipulated this world and made it their own. Most Dystopia worlds get pegged as copy-cat, or "very similar", I will say in the books I've read there weren't any of those. It was strange, but I could actually visualize so much with this book, totally found my bug-out place, lol.
Overall, I want more! More Remy, more Val, more of this amazing world! More secrets, more twists....yes, you could say I'm hooked on The Sowing!
