    Outstanding story. Well worth your time.

    An outstanding post-apocalyptic story set in an extremely rich world of characters. The story will take you on a wild ride through a world that contains pirates, whorehouses, despotic dictators, religious cults and wonderful parents. Unlike many stories in this genre, this story is self contained. At the end of the story you'll feel satisfied but also ready to read more about the wonderful world the author created even if it is with a different cast of characters. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story.

    Excellent story

    I really enjoyed reading this book. Unlike so many in this genre, the circumstances surrounding the apocalypse are frighteningly realistic. No zombies, no nuclear annihilation, no other cliches. From the get-go I really connected with the characters in the story and shared their joys and anxieties. The story itself is very well thought-out and written even better. The story is everything except predictable and dull. I recommend this book to every book lover and any fan of this genre.

    post-apocalyptic page turner!

    This is a fast-paced, fun, post-apocalyptic adventure. Fun post-apocalyptic? Yes! While the post-apocalyptic world is grim, Mandeville approaches it from the point of view of memorable characters, most of whom have never known anything different. These characters are all in some way searching for something critical to humanity's survival: seeds. The journey to find viable seeds is sometimes treacherous, sometimes poignant, and always entertaining. Some of the notable elements include a former amusement park run by a despot, mercenaries on rollerblades, a nuclear powered Humvee, an elaborate house of prostitution (though there's no graphic sex), some cult-like dystopian enclaves, and pirates! Although this is a long book, it's a real page-turner, and I blew through it. When I finished it, the characters, the world, and a feeling of hope stayed with me. It's hard to believe that this skillfully crafted, thrilling adventure story is Mandeville's debut novel. I highly recommend it to people who enjoy a great adventure tale, as well as to those who love the post-apocalyptic genre.

    Fun and Fantastic Survival Fiction!

    Chris Mandeville gives us a compelling post-apocalyptic page turner in her novel SEEDS. The earth is scorched. Food stores are running out and spoiling with no way of producing more. For the second and third generation survivors in this dystopian world, hope is fading until a mysterious dying stranger with a fresh apple is found in the city near NORAD. The new hottest commodity on earth is seeds. the search for them leads us on a post-apocalyptic adventure from Colorado to California. Pirates rule the California coast. Small pockets of desperate people survive in abandoned cities and towns. It’s every man and woman for themselves. This book will suck you in and won’t let go until the last page is turned. You will finish with the feeling of returning from another world and with a newfound respect for your own.

    Fast-paced novel

    Mandeville has created a fast-paced novel that moves quickly through short chapters and action-packed scenes. With ruthless leaders taking over after the apocalypse, can good people find a way to get seeds to keep the survivors from disease and starvation? I enjoyed this novel, and would reccommend it to others to try to answer the questions.
