    I wish we could rate something with half stars. This book would be more than just "liked it" but less than "really liked it". Maybe "liked it more than I thought I would". Maybe? That just doesn't seem to do it justice though. Anyway, I would give this book 3 1/2 stars. There were times where I would skim, or not care as much about the story. I would zone out in parts and have to re-read passages. They were few, but enough to make me wonder why. The style of writing? Too verbose? Poor character I wish we could rate something with half stars. This book would be more than just "liked it" but less than "really liked it". Maybe "liked it more than I thought I would". Maybe?

I would zone out in parts and have to re-read passages. They were few, but enough to make me wonder why. The style of writing? Too verbose? Poor character development? I really couldn't nail down why, but I was annoyed. I also didn't care for the way the story was told in real time, then "it was like this for 6 days", then back to real time. Another instance: dramatic things are happening real time, then a month passes, then real time again. It felt very jarring because this story is heavy on relationships and interactions between characters almost on a minute to minute basis, then a huge swath of time passes, then you're back to minute to minute. The glossing over of that much time made the story less engaging. At least in my opinion. There is finally some character relationship resolution, which is great. I hate love triangles. It was great to see some characters grow and mature. At first I was really against the direction Remy's story went, then I was taken by surprise at how plausible it was. The one thing that left me scratching my head is that her "talent" or "skill" that she wanted to employ for the Resistance is art, but she is almost always the muscle. Even though she describes herself as very small in stature. It really took away from what I think the author was trying to capture about her. All in all, good second book. I have to wait a year until the last book, but such is the problem with trilogies. I knew what I was getting into when I picked up the first book. Hopefully it will be easy to fall back into the story and I can remember everything next year when it comes out.

    I read the first book of The Seeds Trilogy over six months ago. When I heard The Reaping was ready, I was excited to get back to the world and characters K. Makansi had expertly created. I read the novel within two days and was not disappointed. This novel has originality in spades, from the concept to settings and characterisation.

Both major and minor characters grow over the course of the story in believable ways. I loved in particular that there is a clear set of female leaders in this book which hold their own against and amongst the strong male characters. I very much enjoyed the invented language and the descriptions. This one in particular: ‘Smoke and autumnal orange and dragon’s breath. It smells like fall, the crisp scent of fire and crackling and death. Flames sucking at the heels of screaming protesters like a cat lapping up the cream.’ Just gorgeous. The Reaping excels at action scenes, but it also houses keen observations of human behaviour throughout, making it relevant and memorable. It is touching, laugh out loud funny in places and full of lyrical prose. This is a cracking story. I can’t wait for part three.

    This book starts out awesome and then quickly peters out. The pace is interesting because super exciting things will happen and then I feel like it takes big lulls. I do not like the amount of tree hugger preaching going on, and I don't like all the speeches the characters give. I don't need all that chatter to understand what's going on. I don't need to know why putting chemicals/drugs in people's food is bad, I get it.

But I did find the way the produced food was interesting and there are many things and surprises about it that makes you think about what is possible in the future. I was interested enough not to give up on it and keep going. I like the twists and turns the characters take with their relationships, but yet they seem to be realistic twists- Like the fact that it takes month for forgiveness to occur for some of them. And you can really sense the awkwardness and the excitement between Vale, Remy, and Soren. I like the new characters, the waywards. I find it interesting what the Outsiders bring to the story and hope that those loose ends will be tied up in the last book. The last book ends on a cliffhanger, of course.

    Can't wait for the next book. I really like the way the author was able to keep the story interesting without feeling like I've read that before. Yes, you can see what's coming at times but the story is still intriguing! The way we hear the story from different views isn't confusing and gives the reader a sense of emotion from each character! can't wait for fall 2015!!! Can't wait for the next book.

The “love” between her and Vale was from what exactly? They didn’t even really date before they were separated, and even though vale comments to himself how madly in love he is, he can barely talk to the girl? And the war strategy is all based on Character’s emotions. Their tactics cause pain on innocent people, all in the name of giving them a choice. Unless I read it wrong or spaced out (which is entirely possible) the mission at the end was all but completed with zero issues, until Miah had to try to contact his ex. Then all hell breaks loose. So dumb.

    2.5 stars Meh. This was long and lagged a lot. Remy did a lot of stupid things and somehow people followed her anyway, especially Vale who should have known better. He needs to take a hint from Meatloaf. Some things you just don't do, even for love. Add to that the Peetaesque move with Eli and the nanotech virus, the mysterious change in eye color for two of the characters between book one and book two, and the lousy editing, and this series is definitely starting to lose its shine.

    I was excited to continue the story of Vale and Remy in this second book in the "Seeds" trilogy. It did not disappoint! Really happy we got to learn more about the Outsiders society and the cliffhanger at the end will definitely have me reading the third book. Can't wait to see how this story pans out.

    I'm officially done with this series. It was extremely repetitive which made the dialogue boring and the story line drag. Then I realized it was just plain boring. I won't finish the series.

Remy starts out her own mission and soon others follow, but her actions have consequences and before she knows it the resistance is fighting for its members and life again. Vale is struggling his own demons, dealing with all the guilt for the things his parents did to his friends and others. The book ends with a cliffy and there are some scenes in the book that make you want scream and kill one off the characters. The sequel is action packed; the authors did their homework on the manipulated seeds and food distribution, making this book so much more believable in comparison to other books with same topic. Great sequel can’t wait to read the next book.

    After reading The Sowing and The Prelude, I was really torn between two characters I'd fallen for, right along with the female protagonist. Remy Alexander is put through the ringer time and again. Her resilience is impressive. The Reaping is one of those books you can just completely get lost in, even better than the first.

Even as a writer, the editor in me was held captivated by the world, the fast pace, and all the characters Makansi made me care about. I was really worried that there was no way the author could write her way out of the love triangle in a way that would be satisfactory, but I should have known better than to doubt. She took an impossible situation and dealt with it seamlessly, seemingly without effort. I am even more impressed than I was before, and very much looking forward to the final installment. And I sure wouldn't mind reading another short spin-off from this world, with these characters, as well. I'd recommend this book to fans of Dystopian Sci-Fi with a healthy dose of Romance.

    This was a good 2nd book in the Seeds trilogy, but I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the first. The main problem I found was Remy is so different in this book. Her character didn't really grow, but became so consumed with rage and revision that she made some poor decisions. It was also a little disheartening that Vale repeatedly acquiesced so easily in tough situations to Remy because he wanted her to see him differently and love him again.

    Boring Boring Boring After the first book I waited in anticipation for the second one. I was so excited when it finally came out. I figured it would blow me away like the first one did and after reading the first chapter I thought it would but it fell flat. I got so bored reading the same thoughts written in different ways over and over again. after awhile I found myself scheming chapters just to get through it. I did enjoy the character Osphrey.

    I did not like this book as much as the first one. In fact, I didn't really like it at all. Remy is the most selfish character ever! And she manipulates those around her (who may or may not be in love with her) to go along with her dumb-A ideas that you can tell from the get-go are going to fail. I know she's got a lot of angst and just wants to retaliate, but it made me so MAD how her actions caused the destruction of so many others. That's all I have to say about that.

    Seriously pissed off. I enjoyed the first book, bought the second and the print is so tiny I can barely see it and can not read it at all! I have tried it on the nook IPhone app, the IPad app and the Nook HD you can not adjust the text size- the only one in my house who can read the little tiny print is my 9 year old who has better then 20/20 vision. Do not waste your money!

    Repetitive book and missing chapters Unfortunately this book has two very important missing chapters along with missing pages in chapters which seem to be some of the most action packed scenes. Also the book gets very repetitive. For example instead of characters saying they told others of a plan or discovery the book describes everything again and does this more than once.

    The Reaping Dang it, I can't wait a year for the next book. The cliffhanger of this one is killing me. This story is better than the first and one of the few that discusses the dangers of tracking. I anxiously await the final book and hope that novellas fill in the empty space.

    Good book I chose four stars because I quite frankly was not impressed with the end. It seemed as if it was a rushed way to end the book and get vale captured. All though very good read until the end.

    Scary book concept... This could be reality! I didn't love this book as well as the previous one. Could be less build up. Didn't accomplish much until 60% a little slow moving for me.
