Gayla Prewitt | 4 comments Please, anyone that has read the book, I would like your opinion on whether you feel the story will have an impact, awakening us about issues going on with our food supply. Also, was the book entertaining, did it keep your attention? Would you like to read a sequel?

I just re-read this wonderful book. It is very exciting and keeps you on edge. It is just like she said on the cover "A thriller". I highly recommend reading this book for several reasons:
1) It is a great read
2) It is exciting
3) Mainly because it is based on fact. Chemical companies are changing seeds genetically, NOT for GOOD health reasons but for money for themselves. These GMO seeds causes a beak-down in the body and eventually causes death. The people need to be aware of what they are doing and protest against it. Other countries will NOT allow these GMOs into their country. They are band! Why isn't the United States banning them too? Be informed and read this book!

Seed Police


Tagline: The hunt is on!


Short Description

Teenagers, Chance and Emily, along with their families, who call themselves the “Seed Savers,” are in a race against the government patrols and a deadly pandemic. It's the not-too-distant future, and no one but the government is allowed to grow food. Owning seeds is illegal. The pure seeds the families have hidden may hold the key to human survival, in this action-packed political thriller.

Synopsis

Imagine a world where the government controls the food you eat — even the seeds used to grow new food are government produced. The government food program allows only genetically engineered seeds designed to produce disease free plants and to eliminate disease in the people who eat the food. Five years into the program traditional diseases are disappearing; however, a new disease has become an epidemic, with symptoms more virulent and deadly than ever seen before.

Few voices are sounding the alarm, citing a link between the government’s mandated food and the new pandemic. One voice comes from minister Brock Cameron who claims the government has taken science too far and is “playing God.” Congressman Jack Landon is also raising concerns about the dangers of the government food program. Meanwhile, doctor Charity Simpson is trying to track down the cause of the mysterious illness before another patient dies. The answer may lie with a rogue group of “seed savers.” This clandestine band has managed to dodge government patrols and preserve some of the last unaltered seeds left on earth.

Nikolai Kim (NikolaiKim) | 2 comments Sounds fascinating. Food is a theme in my story Cerella Occupation as well. I'll take a look at your book. Of course seed saving is becoming effectively illegal already in certain jurisdictions.
