Midway: A Harvesting Series Novella (Book 1.5 in The Harvesting Series) is a tie-in novella that compliments The Harvesting, Book I in The Harvesting Series. Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, for the beginning of the end. Carnie. Ride jockey. Roustabout. White trash. Tilt girl. Gypsy. Cricket has been called a lot of things, but she never thought survivor of the zombie apocalypse would be one of them. One day she’s barking on the midway, and the next day, the world is eating itself alive. Cricket, along with Vella, a tarot reader, and Puck, Cricket’s mangy mutt, find themselves running for their lives, but where can you hide when mankind has fallen? Cricket will need help if she hopes to survive. Luckily for her, we were never really alone, and apparently, magical forces want to keep this tilt girl alive.
Midway is a novella in the Harvesting series by Melanie Karsak and the perfect little hold me over till the release of book two, The Shadow Aspect, coming in 2015. While characters are familiar to those who have read The Harvesting, book one it is something anyone can enjoy.
Espresso review of Midway
We learned a little about Cricket in the Harvesting so it was nice getting inside her head as the zombie apocalypse begins. It all begins for her as she is operating the Tilt-a-whirl. Cricket is a carney. Karsak did a wonderful job of introducing characters, and fleshing out Cricket. The girl is both sweet and kick-ass. While this is a short novella, it is action packed with some fantastic zombie and action scenes. The ending of Midway left me itching for next book.
If you have not tried author Melanie Karsak, I encourage you to do so. Her writing is descriptive and her imagination knows no bounds. From Steampunk to Zombies she spins tales that hold me captive.
