Thank you for stopping by for this special Guest Author Host. These talented three ladies make up the pen name K. Makansi and have created a Sci-Fi/Dystopian series The Seeds Trilogy. Today, I introduce to you The Sowing Book 1 of the Trilogy. Check it out below and follow their links for even more information on them an heir works. I will have more next week.
Remy Alexander wants vengeance. When she and her friends discover a clue that could help reveal the truth behind the massacre that claimed her sister’s life, she may finally get her chance.
Valerian Orlean wants answers. Why the girl he was in love with disappeared three years ago. Why she joined the Resistance – a covert organization sworn to destroy everything he believes in. When he is appointed to lead a government program whose mission is to hunt and destroy the Resistance, he may finally find his answers – and Remy.
In a world where the powerful kill to keep their secrets, and the food you eat can change who you are, Remy and Vale are set on a collision course that could bring everyone together – or tear everything apart.
In this science-fiction dystopia, the mother-daughter writing team of Kristina, Amira, and Elena Makansi immerse readers in the post-apocalyptic world of the Okarian Sector, where romance, friendship, adventure, and betrayal will decide the fate of a budding nation.
Chosen as a Compulsion Reads “Irresistible Collection” book.
Here’s what they had to say: “The Sowing is a brilliant adventure where war is as much about brain and brawn. The action doesn’t stop for a single minute. I think I sprained my finger swiping my Kindle so vigorously trying to get to the next page. Yeah, it’s that good.” – Compulsion Reads
