After learning what evils the Sector is truly capable of, he must confront his past in order to create a better future.In a world where deadly secrets lurk around every corner, and the food you eat can enlighten or enslave you, Remy and Vale must walk the line between hope and hate, love and loss, violence and vengeance, in order to unite – or destroy – their world. THE REAPING, the second book in the Seeds trilogy, will thrust the Resistance into the spotlight as the Okarian Sector publicly brands them as traitors and terrorists. As Remy struggles to find herself in a world where revenge has become her raison d’etre, and Vale tries to make sense of who he is despite his identity as an Orlean, the two are forced to fight together against enemies more deadly than they ever could have imagined. 

Author Biography

K. Makansi is the pen name of the mother-daughter writing team of Kristina, Amira K., and Elena K. Makansi.Kristina Makansi owns and operates Blank Slate Press, a division of Amphorae Publishing Group, operated out of St. Louis, Missouri. She has edited over a hundred books across multiple genres that have received numerous awards. Although she and her husband and fellow writer Jason just moved to Tucson, Arizona, Kristy divides her time between St. Louis and Tucscon and spends most of it with her dog, Layla, and new pups, Ria Sangria and Mojito Mojo, who can be found trotting adorably at her side. Amira K. Makansi makes wine by day and worlds by night. As a winemaker and full-time writer, she divides her time between working in the cellars at wineries around the world and spinning worlds into existence. In addition to the Seeds trilogy, Amira is hard at work on a story tentatively titled POROUS, a dark psychological story about a girl who can find the paths between worlds - but is being hunted by shadowy beings who threaten to destroy her entire universe. Elena K. Makansi works as a freelance editor and a cover designer for Blank Slate Communications and is about to embark on an MFA in Illustration & Design. She maintains a Facebook page called F*ck Yeah Vegetables! and spends her spare time drawing, painting, and doing research for a full-fledged cookbook-cum-encyclopedia based on the F*ck Yeah Vegetables! page that will introduce people to the multifarious delights of a plant-based diet. She's also hard at work on her next work of fiction, featuring food and magical delights, tentatively called LUNA AND THE MIDNIGHT CAFE.
