Human greed and gluttony can exist only so long before consequences catch up to actions. For Dave Forrester, the actions of every human living were about to be addressed in his home town of Farley, Oklahoma. A haunting memory from the past becomes a real-life nightmare after a curious car accident in the middle of the night. Stranger yet, the people of Farley have disappeared without a trace leaving only bloody clothing behind, and glimpses of terrifying creatures cloaked in sulfuric wisps of smoke! It's up to Dave to figure out why, and how to save the few that survive....the harvest.

Harvest" by Michele Gwynn is a sci-fi short story that begins with an account of a UFO sighting . When Dave was in school, the Future Farmers of America went on a field trip to a Black Angus cattle farm to see how the cattle were put on the truck to be taken to the slaughterhouse. The students witnessed cattle being prodded with cattle prods and one had a broken leg and wasn't treated very well. Some of the students didn't care, but others found it sickening and vowed never to treat their own cattle that way.
Because tales should be told.
Yes, I would recommend it to those who like sci-fi, supernatural thrillers, or horror. It is a solid story with a good ending.
Dave's father is my favorite character, because he is hilarious. The playful banter between his parents are some my favorite scenes.
No, this is the first. He gave a sterling performance. His steady voice lends credibility to this sci-fi tale.
When Dave sees the little boy hiding in the cattle lot, it is incredibly moving. That moment captures the terror of the whole book.
This is a good story for this time of year (Halloween is around the corner). It is genuinely eerie. The author does a good job capturing the terror this scenario would create. She builds suspense well. She ends well. The scenes (sex and violence/gore) are not graphic, but definitely adult. This is a solid story with a good performance by the narrator. I enjoyed it.
Willow Star Serenity
I can't explain how intensely amazing this was. The characters were easy to fall for and the story was easy to get lost in. The narrator also did a fantastic job. I just wish it was longer. I fully recommend!
