The robot Caretaker of Seattle Farm 0722 knows its work is important—it nourishes life, and the resulting harvest feeds the legacy humans, the ones the Masters care for and keep in Seattle. But when humans begin to make unauthorized incursions onto the Farmland, the Caretaker soon finds it has been cultivating more than it knew… and that some things were never meant to grow.

My thoughts about Harvest ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"I walk the rows of strawberries, absorbed in their beauty. They perfume the air, a triumphant blast that dims the sharp steel of pickers and dank must of earth.They have arrived!"

I sometimes find it a bit challenging to write reviews of short stories or novella. You're reading along and then boom, it's over. But Susan has written a powerful story and it's amazing to me how she can write something with so much impact in so few words. This is a story that made me stop and think long after I finished the last page.

Susan's books (e.g., her SciFi, Steampunk, YA) have taken me totally outside of my usual reading genres and I have loved everything I have read by her.... and I'm pretty sure I've read just about everything she's written so far.

The Singularity series and the Stories of Singularity are amazing and I highly recommend them. You really should read them!
