Publisher's Summary

First the birds went quiet.

Then the evening sky filled with strange clouds that trapped the heat below.

Now Callum wakes, dripping in sweat. Something has come to his isolated Welsh farm. If he's going to keep his family alive during this single night when all hell breaks loose, he'll have to think fast. And when he sees what he's facing, he suspects even that may not be enough.

This blast of a book can be listened to in one nail-biting session.

    It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.

    "An Awesome Horror Story"

    Harvest Festival was truly a nail biter. This was an excellent listen. I enjoyed the way it started out with a pretty typical family situation with them living on a farm and the son being interested in astronomy and the daughter bored and chatting on her phone. It's dinnertime, then bedtime, then...

    Karl Drinkwater is a terrific author and I hope to listen to more of his work. I thought this short story was absolutely exciting. Couldn't stop listening.

    R J Alldred's performance was incredibly good. Her approach to reading this story was totally edge of your seat. I think she took this book over the top with her vocal skills. Great listen.

    "Aliens have invaded the farm!"

    It's harvest time and the aliens have invaded the farm. They aren't after anal probes, cattle, crop circles or any of the other usual alien stuff. These aliens came with a grocery list and we are top on it. Get ready for a great story. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Harvest Festival"

    This may be a short story but it is packed with action and horror. It is fast paced and will keep your interest from beginning to end

    The narrator puts a lot of energy in this audio. Her performance is a joy to listen to

    I received this audio book free in exchange for an honest unbiased review

    Story
    "Excellent writing great narration"
    What made the experience of listening to Harvest Festival the most enjoyable?

    Fantastic writing both in use of language and crafting of story. For a relatively short book it's an extensive journey into the imagination. Excellent combining of the English old world and terrifying modernity.


    What other book might you compare Harvest Festival to and why?

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers - the sacks! Ok that's a movie, not a book but ya know...


    What does R J Alldred bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Wonderful intonations of expression. He brings to life the internal worlds of the characters and the impossibility of the antagonists.


    If you could take any character from Harvest Festival out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The daughter - her progressive character arc.

    "LOVED IT!!"
    Any additional comments?

    Wow… This book was like nothing I thought I would ever be interested in but I loved it.. It was grotesque and horrifying and kept me on the edge of my seat!! I enjoyed that as the reader you had to come to the conclusion of what the terrifying creatures were before the characters told you what they thought…
