Harvester by Rachel Russell

Expected Publication March 17. 2014 by Entranced Publishing

From Goodreads: 

Sixteen-year-old Catalina has never seen the sky. As a mage, it’s illegal for her to leave the underground city she lives in. The sun and moon are only fantastical stories of a land far away. So when Catalina stumbles upon a tunnel leading to the surface, she can’t resist the temptation to see the surface world.

But instead of enjoying a night beneath the stars for the first time, Catalina emerges upon the scene of a savage murderer harvesting faery body parts. She's nearly his next victim, but is rescued by a grim boy named Will who has a troubling connection to the killer.

Even more disquieting is Catalina’s criminal status upon returning home. Someone with political clout has framed her for the vicious slayings. Now on the run from the law, Catalina must uncover Will’s tie to the serial killing of faeries, as well as stop a bloodthirsty murderer to prove her innocence, or face a death sentence.

My Review:

I am finding that I like stories about faeries more and more.   The Harvester is no exception.  

From the beginning I loved the spunk of Catalina.   She is a sixteen year old who lives with her brother, Evan,  since both her parents are dead.   She never steps down from a fight, whether physical or mental, and manages to repeatedly save her friends and her own life.     When she met Will, while on the surface world, I was curious as to where their relationship could possibly go.

Will was sentenced to death by curse and very close to dying.   The immediate attraction and desire to protect Catalina endeared him to my heart.   He was the person that I was most intrigued with.  Will knew his death was coming, but yet lived life never really giving up the chance of living longer.  He also did not take the easy way out and become a Harvester, who is the one who commits murder to stay alive.  

This story was incredibly entertaining.  Rachel Russell wrote a short story that kept the reader entertained and enjoying her woven tale.  I will recommend this book to any paranormal reader.
