I found this book for free during a promotion. Book Two takes up right where we left off on end of book one. Mitchell portraits our world as one dominated and decimated by alien invaders. Horribly violent, incredibly powerful aliens that, possibly by accident, were made to need human blood to survive. During this action-packed part of the adventure, doom on top of doom rains down on our heroes. Every minute adds even more impossible odds of survival. On top of that, world ending trouble looms just ahead for our planet. I recommend you give this series a try, it's got a bit of romance, lots of fighting, lots of twists to get our heroes asses out of the fire. It does get a bit tedious at times which typically happens with books in a series. IE We are reading about character development that we have read before, but that's what you get in a series type book. Still, I think it works and I want to thank Luke Mitchell for the escape from reality it gave me for a while. Plus, I want to see how our heroes deal with the upcoming world ending super creature on it's way to destroy the earth.
I am not normally a fantasy reader. I tend to favor the military space opera genre. But I picked up Red Gambit on a 99 cent special and I am glad I did. The story is good, the characters are fun, and the writing is awesome. Hell to Pay is better than Red Gambit and I am about to start on Reaping Day. The only down side is I have to wait for book four...
Update: I have finished all 4 Harvester books and 2 of the new Enochian war books which is a prequel to the Harvester series. They are just as good as the original series with a couple of the Enochian characters you learn about in the Harvester books .
4 stars. Hell to Pay is the second book in The Harvesters series. You can read this as a standalone but I don't recommend that. This book starts off where Red Gambit ended and the ending leaves the storyline open for future books that might be written. There is violence.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat all of that info here. This is a futuristic thriller that has a very different take on vampires and alien life. As usual, everything and everyone is not as it seems. I look forward to reading the next book to find out what happens.
My rating is 3.5. I’m disappointed in the direction. There was so much excitement in book one. With the sporadic action and Jared and Rachel constantly in their heads, I lost interest in the story. I found myself rushing to the conclusion. The battles were so chaotic. Made it difficult to focus. I hope Reaping Day is much better. I really loved book one and wanted that euphoria to continue through the series. Hope the next book is better.
Luke Mitchell has a really good fast paced series in these books. Well written and a few twists that left me looking for the next book. Interesting characters and by the end of the second book good vs. Evil characters takes a bit of a poke in the eye. Enjoy.....
Jarek won the battle, but may have caused the destruction of Earth to follow, Rachel saved her brother...who's in a coma, The resistance is fighting both aliens here and our heroes while more aliens are coming to destroy Earth. The lovable smart ass guys and gals are moving on with unpredictable results.
