Shane Tucker and his friends thought they managed to save the world from the destructive machine that killed off most of its adult population. Unfortunately, a war nobody was prepared for has only just begun. Now they find themselves joining ranks with a secret organization that will train them to fight for the right to survive. Taking refuge alongside other teenage survivors in a hidden base set deep within the mountains, they will learn how to repel an imminent attack by an ancient race of aliens.
Determined to safeguard the children under their charge, Shane and his friends compete for the ultimate prize—a suicide mission against the flagship of the alien fleet. While Shane's feelings for Kelly deepen, along with his need to protect her, he finds emotions clouding his judgment. He’ll gladly die for her. But he refuses to die with her. No amount of training can prepare them for what is to come. Everything the brave teenagers have endured thus far will be eclipsed, with the freedom of humanity hanging in the balance.
The Harvest is the heart-pumping sequel to The Last Orphans by N.W. Harris.

The Last Orphans #2
I couldn't sleep, and decided to read a chapter or two of this to clear my mind of all the usual daily stuff. You know, help me relax. Next thing I know, I'm screaming, "NO! I did NOT give you permission to be over, get back here and tell me what happens next!", at my kindle screen. Needless to say, it just had to be stubborn and not give in to my whims.
I'm always a bit skeptical going into sequels, because it seems like every time I love a first book, the second one is terrible. Thankfully, that's not the case here! There's a mega plot twist, and I had no idea it was coming after The Last Orphans. So, bravo, Mr. Harris! That rarely happens to me! I was in the edge of my seat, barely breathing through the last part of this, and I cannot WAIT to for the next in the series!
