When mankind finally consumes itself, can any spark of humanity survive? Layla fights to keep those she loves alive when the zombie apocalypse unfolds, but she soon learns that zombies are not the only problem. With mankind silenced, those beings living on the fringe seek to reclaim power. Layla must learn who to trust, fast, if she hopes to save what is left of our kind.

I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy The Harvesting or not. Turns out, I did. I loved that it wasn't strictly a scary, gory zombie story. It was much more than I expected... Zombies, vampires, spirits and a little romance on the side. Layla, the heroine, was easy to like and she kicked ass.
It ended a bit abruptly for my taste but I think there will be some interesting things revealed in the second book and I can't wait to read it. The Harvesting is definitely worth reading.
