4.5 of 5 stars, but I like to round up!

First off, I feel I need to clarify something: Ms. Fisher is a fellow independent author, and my friend. That said, I didn't actually get to know her until recently (read: after I'd already fallen in love with her first book, "Eden's Root"). She let me have a copy of Seeds of War before the publication date and asked me for some honest feedback. That's what this is.

"Seeds of War" continues the story of Fi Kelly (and Asher, Sean, et al---but to me, it's Fi's

Shoot! I'm done! Hurry up, Ms. Fisher! I want more!

Well done, Ms. Fisher! I loved every bit of the story. It was well worth the wait. The characters and plot are so real that I forgot what reality really was. And it is a book that makes you think. I makes you want to be ready. It makes you want to fight to keep Truefood, if we still have any. It is so late that I can't think of more to say. I am that overwhelmed and under-worded!

So i was really eager to get an hand on this book since i really liked the first one but i have to say i was a scared because in a lot of trilogy the second book tend to act as a filler and be less action

Before starting this review, I just want to thank Rachel Fisher for sending me this signed copy. :)

It took me a while to get into the book, but once it did, I couldn't really stop. Though I couldn't yet feel connected to the main character Fi, I found myself more drawn to others like Sara and Sean. Perhaps, I feel like Fi always looks like she's near perfection and that everyone is always telling her how amazing she is and it's like, in lack of better of words, a turn off to me. I t

Got to say I really did love Seeds of war. This dystopian book didn’t disappoint, I was always left guessing with what’s going to happen next. When I thought I knew what was coming it turned out a surprise when I was wrong.

The setting for this book to place mostly in either eden or outside where our main characters travel too. It surprises me by how much backpacking they do with the distances they travel. They go so far to stay away for weeks and weeks for their job, sleeping outside under the s

Seeds of War by Rachel Fisher - Rebuilt, Reconnect

BookNook — Young Adult book reviews

Seeds of War is a tricky book to review. While I was still very interested in the overall idea, I felt like this book suffered from second-book-in-a-series syndrome. It was missing a strong, central, overarching conflict. It had a lot of mini conflicts, and a few half developed overall conflicts, but nothing was really strong and central. I think that made the book lose focus a bit.

Before I dive further into that, I'll talk about some of the things I liked.

The concept of this Trilogy still fascinates me, but the plot really needed to be more focused in Seeds of War.

I was excited to read book two of the Eden's Root Trilogy because I have been dying to see what was going to happen next. For the most part I wasn't disappointed. I was truly shocked by the developments in this book. The Truthers, the religious group who are strongly anti-technology, are gaining followers and are taking dr

Fans of Eden's Root will eagerly devour Seeds of War, which possesses many of the qualities that made the first book so strong a debut. Sympathetic characters, a generous amount of action, a little bit of mystery, and a lot of romance all combine to form a story that will engross readers and leave them anxious for the final book. Science fiction and dystopians in particular have inundated the market, but Seeds of War stands out with it

It has been several years since the world has been devastated by the great famine. Fi, Asher, Sean and the family have made it to Eden and have found their place there, all making tremendous contributions to the Eden community and what it stands for, each finding themselves in integral roles not only in Eden, but in the future of the planet. Now the time has come for the second phase of Eden's purpose, which is to reconnect the people living topside that have survived. The great famine occurred ...more

3.5 stars. It's still a very good, thoughtful YA dystopia with strong female characters in spades, but it is less focused than the first.

In the first book, the warrior girl Fi led her Family to the safety of Eden, an underground complex designed to shelter a team of scientists who were trying to survive to replenish an earth where the food kills you and the grasses are dying due to biological modification gone bad.

In the second, Fi, her lover Asher, and the rest of her Family are now fully integ

Several years after taking off in search of EDEN, Fi and her Family are finally safe in the underground home. They made it after losing loved ones and having to take the lives of those who wanted to cause them harm. Fi and her Family are still in danger when having to go topside but it is nothing like when they were on their own. For once, since the horrific famine started, they can believe of a future worth living for.
Soon EDEN wants to help others by giving them hopes of a future and a chance

As I had read and reviewed and thoroughly enjoyed Bk#1 in the Eden's Root trilogy the author kindly gave me Bk#2 Seed's Of War free in exchange for my honest opinion and review.
To me the cover fits the book well. It is attractive and eye catching and would encourage me to pick it up from a shelf to read the blurb and learn more about the book.
The female on the front is Fi and she is surrounded by the desolate lands that have been left after the apocalypse. And as the byline on the cover

As soon as I finished reading the Eden’s Root (book #1 in the Eden’s Root Trilogy) surprise ending that left me open-mouthed, I knew that Seeds of War would be one of the highlights of my summer. All our favorite characters are back: power couple Fi and Asher (They met in the middle of a gang-fight. With psychopaths. When Fi had a .22 aimed at Asher’s head. But there’s more to the story…) as well as Sean and Sarah (Sean backs Sara with her need to become a Seeker to understand Sean, experience t ...more

Looking back at my review of Eden’s Root and now sitting down to write a review for Seeds of War, I really have to comment on how much Rachel Fisher’s writing has improved. By leaps and bounds, actually, which is incredibly satisfying to see as a reader.

Fisher has a lot of love for her world and characters, which is clear in Seeds of War as we get so many questions answered about what brought about the end of the world as we know it. It was great that we we

*If you haven’t read the first book, EDEN'S ROOT, there might be very slight spoilers in my review.*

I’m going to have to be honest here – SEEDS OF WAR suffers a bit from “Sequel Syndrome”. It definitely wasn’t a bad book, but I felt like it had less action than the first, EDEN'S ROOT. Overall however, the book developed lots of significant plo

Man, this book was deep. It explored a lot of very prominent philosophical issues, like the nature of humanity, in a way that made it applicable not only to the events in Seeds of War, but also to our own world. Through different characters, Rachel Fisher brought up the topics of the right of one human being to end the life of another, the dilemmas that spring from acting on new knowledge and technologies without truly understanding the possible consequences, and most importantly, in my opinion, ...more

I really enjoyed the previous book, Eden's Root, so when the author sent me a copy of Seeds of War I was very excited to see what happens next.
I was glad to see that Fi and Ash are still together and going strong, and Sean and Sara together which makes me happy since I did feel sorry for Sean losing his best friend.  I do have to say though, that I love Sara's determination and spirit.  She may not have come from a background like Fi, Ash and Sean, but she certainly makes up for it with her det

When we last saw Fi, Asher and Sean, they had settled in to the community they found in Eden after a long, arduous trek. Finding sanctuary in Eden, a safe haven from a world that has become primitive after the global destruction of food crops, was the goal and the Family put full trust in Fi to lead them there. Now, though, it is time for Eden’s people to reach out to other hidden communities and begin to rebuild society, to reconnect.

I can honestly say that I loved this story, and I think you will too. In this sequel to Eden's Root, the story takes an exciting turn for the unknown when the quartet (known as "The Seeders") ventures "topside" to begin distributing seeds and communication equipment to help rebirth civilization. This story will really make you wonder what you'd be capable of in a post-apocalyptic world when life is thrown back to the hazards of the Wild West.

It is now their job to journey to other friendly survivors and give out heirloom seeds and radio equipment to begin connecting the Survivors into something of a community.

This book has totally hit a nerve with me. I read ALOT and many books I have chosen to read involve our diet and what we consider food. Our food today does not at all resemble what it was decades ago. Wheat has been modified to such an extent there is only a tiny remnant of anything that was ever considered "wheat". I have adopted three children - all with special needs. Some of their issues are environmental but some have no explanation such as autism. Is that a result of diet? Immun

It was surprising to see how many there were & to feel the hope that Fi had at rebuilding the world. The Truthers sound really interesting & insane, so I can't wait to see what happens with that.

In a world of apocalyptic ends. The people of Eden rely highly on the ability to connect with other groups for survival. Although they could probably sustain themselves with trips to the outside and growing their own food. It's something that is not beneficial at this time. They must have contact with the outside world to know what is happening and continue their efforts to help society get back to a normal as fast as possible.

The Seeders are responsible for making these trips. To get supplies,

Real Fear vs. Fictional Fear 2 4 Aug 10, 2012 07:23AM  
I think cliches are undervalued and that ellipses are just *asking* for abuse. :)

Since I was a girl I've been an avid reader, a science-fiction fanatic, and a lover of words.

A scientist by background, I've always loved biology-based science-fiction. It is in this vein that I offer my work.
