Book Review: Reap - The Harvest Saga


The remnants of the United States of America have been divided. From five enormous, technologically-advanced cities, the Greaters rule over the Lessers. 

In the Lesser village of Orchard, things are not as perfect as Abby Kelley thinks they are. When the apple harvest draws near and the Greater’s engineered fruits become too much for one village to handle alone, reinforcements from neighboring villages are called upon. 
Having to choose between her best friend, whom she has no romantic feelings for, and mysterious newcomer Crew, Abby finds herself in the middle of a harvest that she had no intention of becoming a part of. She becomes involved in a situation that threatens the strict rule of the Greaters, and just might give the Lessers hope for a better tomorrow. But, can she help the Lessers without losing Crew? And if she chooses Crew, will she lose her best friend? 

My Review

This is the first book in a three book series by Casey L. Bond. This book is 270 pages long.

The U.S.A crumbles and whatever is left is turned into a Monarchy, where Greaters rule and Lessers serve. Greaters give the Lessers enough materials and food to survive, but will that be enough. Abby has been in the dark most of her life, with her aunt, Lulu. The Greaters greedily take what they want, so now not only do Lessers have to harvest the engineered apples in the fields, but now they have to get reinforcements from other Lesser villages. Abby has been protecting many, but all it is doing is getting her hurt. When Greaters enter the village, secrets will be revealed and hearts will be broken. The Greaters are even more involved in bad stuff than ever thought. Abby is falling for Crew, but she will learn of his skeletons in the closets. To protect her best friend, Kyan and the rest of the village, Abby might have to sacrifice herself and others. Can Abby really hold the remains of the world on her shoulders? Who will Abby choose?  Kyan or Crew?

I really liked this book. I have never read a book with this concept before and it is very interesting. You will have to read the next book for some of your questions in this book to be answered, though. I was really rooting for Kyan and Abby. Best fiends can learn to love, right? I can't wait to read the next book and the book after that. I hope to read more of Casey L. Bond's work like, the Frenzy series. It looks very cool. There was mild cussing and nothing really bad. This is something for a wide variety of ages to read.
