Lilian Oake has been writing fantasy for over ten years with millions of hits on her most popular story, Nahtaia: A Faery's Tale. When not writing, she's wandering the forests of North Carolina with her better half and fellow fantasy author, or binge-watching her beloved Lord of the Rings trilog
Joshua Robertson was born in Kingman, Kansas on May 23, 1984. A graduate of Norwich High School, Robertson attended Wichita State University where he received his Masters in Social Work with minors in Psychology and Sociology. His bestselling novel, Melkorka, the first in The Kaelandur Series, was released in 2015. Known most for his Thrice Nine Legends Saga, Robertson enjoys an ever-expanding and extremely loyal following of readers. He counts R.A. Salvatore and J.R.R. Tolkien among his literary influences.

Right out of the gate, I'll say that the only reason I'm giving this 4 instead of 5 stars is that it ended too soon and I want more. I demand my gratification NOW! Hehe.

Ok, now that that's out of the way, The Harvesters is a great start to a new sci-fi series by two excellent authors who normally stick to the fantasy wheel-house. Well, Joshua Robertson and L.F. Oake make the jump very well indeed. I mean, come on. Post-Apocalypse sci-fi with human clones, an alien menace, werewolves, zombies and vampires? That's like peanut butter and chocolate dipped in powdered sugar and sprinkled with awesome-dust. If any of those things are your bag, I predict you will like The Harvesters.

It's a great quick read that grabs you with action from the get-go and doesn't really let up. As I said at the outset, my only gripe is that I want more. But hey, I'm greedy. Heh.

So read this, enjoy it and encourage them to write more. Get to work, guys. Hehe
