Harvest is a chilling work of science fiction penned by author Olga Werby. A father and daughter team take center stage in a battle for humanity in the far-flung future of planet Earth. Where colonies on other planets exist and Earth has barely survived its own extinction, Dr Varsaad Volhard finds herself tasked with first contact of an alien civilization when strange artifacts are uncovered. Her father Matteo hides secrets for the both of them, and as Vars prepares to journey out into the far reaches of space, Matteo finds that people are dying of strange causes in the human worlds as well. This deadly mystery must be solved near and far before it’s too late for human life as they both know it.
Author Olga Werby writes with excellent pacing to deliver a detailed and engagingly deep science fiction plot as well as a fast and action-fuelled novel that keeps the reader wanting to turn pages. Never too bogged down by the details, gradual exposition and well-crafted character development lead us to the secret origins of both Vars and Matteo as they uncover conspiracies and secrets that humanity would never be able to dream of in their society. I really enjoyed the realism of this far future, where the new tech and alien culture are drawn from our own influences, making them more relatable and often frighteningly realistic and threatening on the page. Overall, Harvest makes compelling reading for its conceptual prowess, strong plot and commitment to character development.
