    One thought on “The Sowing”

    1. You can read this review and more on my blog:I received a free copy of this book thanks to the author via Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.This book started out with a bang, but then it leveled out for a while and spent a lot of time on back story so it took me a minute  to get into it. But I'm glad I stuck with it because this story ended up being well written and action packed.This is the same storyline that a lot of Dystopian novels use. The formula was nothing new, but it [...]

    2. Remy's sister was killed along with her classmates. It was a massacre in the classroom. Yet somehow, Remy survived. Now years later, Remy has come back on the grid. She was hiding out with the Resistance. Yet all this time Remy has not forgotten her sister. She suspects that the killing was set up but for what reason?Valerian aka Vale Orlean is the leader on the other side. He has been put in charge with finding the members of the Resistance and stopping them. However it is not as easy as it see [...]

    3. When Remys sister is murdered by outsiders, or so they are told, she is devastated. When questions arise about it her family abandon the sector and join the resistance. She left everything behind including her boyfriend Valerian.Years later and Valerian is now leading the hunt to stop the resistance. He has no idea why Remy left and still thinks of her. He knows he has to stop the resistance no matter what, even if Remy is involved. When he is told some hard truths he has to find evidence and wh [...]

    4. This is the reason why I love reading books from Indie writers; sometimes you find that hidden gem, that book that blows your mind, that book that keeps you up until the middle of the night, that book that takes you for a roller-coaster ride.That book that deserves my sparely given 5 star rating.Remy has been waiting patiently for years now to get her revenge. When she was 15 her sister Tai was murdered in cold blood together with 6 other students and their professor. She lives in the Oktarian s [...]

    5. As seen on my blog:3.5 STARSOKAY. That came out of no where. I was totally not expecting The Sowing to read so intricately. Dystopians have, unfortunately, acquired an air of "been there, read about a new world like that." I feel like it's extremely hard to convince me that a dystopian is worth liking, but I liked this book, and was impressed by the reasons why.The first thing that earned my respect, and something I find is STILL missing in YA novels these days, was the diverse ethnicities of th [...]

    6. Note: this review is copied from my blog at BiblioticaHere’s the thing about The Sowing: technically, because it takes place in an ‘advanced’ society that is not our own (though it bears some strong similarities), this novel is science fiction. At the same time, however, it’s a novel about social justice, and a warning about GMO foods – something particularly timely as we fight to change labeling and live in a world where companies like Monsanto are increasingly in control of what we e [...]

    7. This is just the beginning. I can feel it. This is only the first book in the series, and it’s already a complicated story, with various subplots and tons of detail. The authors were kind enough to provide a map at the beginning of the book, but I’m not sure how helpful it was. The world building was far too complex to navigate with a map! Therein lies the problem. With such a full plot, I know that I will inevitably forget a lot of the details by the time the next book is released. I am hop [...]

    8. There were several things I liked about this book. The plot is more complex than much of the YA I've read lately. The characters are interesting, and behave in relatively logical ways. There is an implied love triangle, which seems to be a requirement in YA these days, but it wasn't the centerpiece of the novel. Minor spoilers ahead: On the other hand, the pacing and plot in the first half was better than in the second half. I'm not sure how the authors' collaborative process works, but I felt l [...]

    9. I don't have the time right now to right a long review, but oh my god if Remy and Vale ever get together i will lose my shit. Remy/soren over remy/vale anyday. even though it's pretty obvious remy and vale will be endgame i am hoping with everything in me that vale falls off a cliff

    10. I absolutely loved this book! It is one of the best books I've ever read. It's starts out a little slow but don't quit because it gets really good.This is romance. Remy and Soren and the past relationship with Remy and Vale.Ugh. I despise Remy and Soren. Vamy forever.

    11. Full page - sarityahalomi/201 The Sowing is a real page-turner. It is a one of the very best quality sci-fi that I read lately. It's hard science fiction in the sense that it avoids use of magic and fantasy and extrapolates into the future from current genetic engineering of crops to how new developments in that science can change society, politics, and human nature itself. The science of DNA technology is a central element in the plot and it is a subject that is close to my heart. After religio [...]

    12. My original The Sowing audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.The Sowing by K. Makansi is the first novel in a trilogy called Seeds. The story follows two young adults, Remy Alexander and Valerian Orlean, who are on two different political sides of the Okarian Sector government in a post-apocalyptic world. After years of wars and famine, the world has finally stabilized and the government has a tight control over the food production with the hope of ensuring the cont [...]

    13. To satisfy my chocolate itch, I’ve shopped the candy aisles thinking, “huh, that looks like a good one, but chocolate is chocolate…it really doesn’t matter, just as long as I get some.” Oh contraire! Choosing just the right brand of yum to achieve a chocolate fix makes all the difference in the world, and also, incidentally, aligned with my assumptions when it came to reading The Sowing by the Makansi mother-daughter writing trio. This addition to the dystopian genre packed a punch tha [...]

    14. This book was really a very pleasant surprise. There was a very interesting and original premise. There was a host of different characters that brought their own dynamics to the story. There was a bit of romance. There was a Dystopian/Utopian struggle. There was a secret society determined to set right a wrong, but most importantly, there was an alternating story told between Vale and Remy- two people on opposite sides of the tracks. The premise was spot on. It sort of reminded me of Brave New W [...]

    15. Amira Makansi, AB'10CoauthorFrom the coauthor: "Remy Alexander was born into the elite meritocracy of the Okarian Sector. From an early age, she and her friends were programmed for intellectual and physical superiority through specialized dietary regimes administered by the Okarian Agricultural Consortium. But when her older sister Tai was murdered in a brutal classroom massacre, her parents began to suspect foul play. They fled the Sector, taking their surviving daughter underground to join the [...]

    16. This was a great read!. The pace was fast, the characters believable and the world building intriguing. With all the controversy surrounding Monsanto this book is like a peek into the possible future with lots of action and mystery thrown in. I also caught a sense of 'Brave New World" in there with the way the classes were separated and those that didn't fit into the society being out in a Wilderness type area. I loved the two main characters (Vale and Remy) who are also the narrators of the sto [...]

    17. I was given this book as a gift. It does not fall into something that I would have grabbed on my own. I will say that, overall, the story is actually very enjoyable. It is set in a very human post-apocalypse where genetic and bio-engineering are part of what has destroyed as well as what keeps humanity alive.It wastes no time getting the action started. I actually had to backtrack because it was so sudden that I thought I missed something. Actually, what you get is the crux of one of multiple dr [...]

    18. I saw this book via a friend's update and I'm glad I did, even though I'm getting tired of series and wish there were more standalones generally (and YA in particular).That being said, this is a wonderful book and a good start to the series. The action is fairly simple, but the plotting, backstory, and characterization are layered and complex, so I'm looking forward to future books in the series!

    19. 3.5 Stars. I really enjoy dystopian young adult novels, and I'm always looking for something new in the genre, so The Sowing went on my list as soon as I saw it. I was drawn in right away as the story opens with the brutal murder of Remy Alexander's older sister, Tai, and the mystery of who was behind the attack and why deepens. After religious wars followed by years of famine decimated the population, the remaining society has evolved and organized itself into a series of farms and research lab [...]

    20. *I received an eCopy in exhange for an honest review.I love dystopian young adult books. In fact, as cliché as this may seem, The Hunger Games enticed me back into regularly reading. So when I saw the blurb for The Sowing I HAD to read it. It looked like a really interesting world. Although there are tons of dystopian novels out there and the idea of food rationing isn't new, I found that The Sowing was able to discover its own niche within the genre.I have to say this outright. I'm not a huge [...]

    21. I dived into this book while being in a really frustrating and unnerving reading slumb. I knew I needed a really good and action packed book to keep me entertained, and out of sheer frustration - because I couldn´t find anything fitting for that in my shelf - I started reading The Sowing. And oh my god, that was really all I needed to get me back on the reading track! It was awesome and I couldn´t put it down!I believe that the beginning of this book decided things for me. I´ve rarely read a [...]

    22. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Joanna's ReviewThe Sowing is a the first part of a trilogy in which the story is set in a post apocalyptic world where all food is GM tailored for each person’s station in society and their role. Children are educated and raised for certain jobs and roles within the society as a whole. Genetically modified food makes up a major point within this story as the characters had descended from people who had suffered through famine, and [...]

    23. Review originally posted on Bibliophilia, Please.Don't you hate it when you're writing a review and you have this blank page glaring back at you. I've been having a staring contest with this review of The Sowing because I don't really quite know how I feel about it. The world-building is good, I guess the science works for me, and the writing is alright, but I lacked any sort of connection with the characters.I have no idea why, but The Sowing reminded me a bit of the movie, The Matrix. There's [...]

    24. In a world where food is grown and engineered for us, can you really trust what you eat ? The Sowing is A great read for fans of Dystopian YA and Sci-fi. First off I was so interested to find that The Sowing is actually written by a Mother / Daughters team, how cool is that ?!?!! I loved the idea of The Sowing and how the plot really speaks to possibilities that may not be too far in our own futures. I love it when authors are able to make their novel Dystopian and Futuristic, but yet maybe not [...]

    25. After the Religious Wars and Famine Years almost wiped out the human race, the Okarian Sector rose from the ashes, a small colony that uses genetics and technology to thrive in an otherwise dystopian world. The leaders and elite who live in the capital city of Okaria are happy and safe, while the farms and factories outside the city hum with productivity. Who better to embody all the strength, potential and advancement of human culture than Valerian Augustus Orleán? With a name like that, it’ [...]

    26. i just couldntme dystopia different day. and all the science talk was way too technical for me to follow. I really tried

    27. When I briefly explained the plot of The Sowing to some friends -- dystopian novel set in a futuristic world where, among other things, food is exclusively made of GMOs and tailor made to a person's station in life -- they both said the same thing: "and where's the fictional part?" Sure, that's a gross oversimplification of the story, but like all good dystopian novels, it's grounded in a bit of truth and then set in the far future and taken to the extreme. The Sowing is a great initial entry in [...]

    28. This is kind of a "smart" book, with all the scientific language and descriptions of the chemicals in the food, as well as body processes. The prologue is narrated in first-person, which is really effective as the speaker gets murdered in an attack and talks about the body shutting down.The plot itself just did not draw me in, however. There is definitely a lot of set-up and world-building to get the reader up to speed with the story. Then the rest of the plot isn't very special - capturing pris [...]
