Book Review: The Harvested (The Permutation Archives Book One)

Title: The Harvested (The Permutation Archives Book One)

Author: Kindra Sowder




There are only a few things Mila is afraid of. Most are pretty common fears, but there is one that sets her apart from those around her. The fear of a secret. With one drop of blood, her secret of a power beyond anything anyone had ever seen before is unleashed, landing her in a place where she is a prisoner. And an experiment. And there are only a few that know their dictator’s ultimate goal. Some are willing to save her, others want to exploit her for their own dark and sinister intentions, and it is up to her to stop them before it’s too late.



My review

5/5 Stars

Wonderfully immersive, The Harvested is unlike anything I’ve read before. The worldbuilding is great, the characters are strong and believable, and the plot is very compelling. This YA sci-fi tells the story of Mila and people like her who have powers due to mutations in their blood. After an announcement by their government reveals their existence, they are rounded up to experimentation facilities where Mila and all her friends face the true depths of human cruelty.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
