Title: The Last Harvest
Author: Kim Liggett
Date of Publication: January 10th, 2017
“I plead the blood.”
Those were the last words seventeen-year-old golden boy quarterback Clay Tate heard rattling from his dad’s throat when he discovered him dying on the barn floor of the Neely Cattle Ranch, clutching a crucifix to his chest.
Now, on the first anniversary of the Midland, Oklahoma slaughter, the whole town’s looking at Clay like he might be next to go over the edge. Clay wants to forget the past, but the sons and daughters of the Preservation Society—a group of prominent farmers his dad accused of devil worship—won’t leave him alone. Including Ali, his longtime crush, who suddenly wants to reignite their romance after a year of silence, and hated rival Tyler Neely, who’s behaving like they’re old friends.
Even as Clay tries to reassure himself, creepy glances turn to sinister stares and strange coincidences build to gruesome rituals—but when he can never prove that any of it happened, Clay worries he might be following his dad down the path to insanity…or that something far more terrifying lies in wait around the corner.
I have loved Liggett’s writing in all the books I’ve read by her. And what she does best, is write well-rounded characters!
Clay was such a relatable character and he was going through a lot. Sometimes I didn’t know if he was crazy or what was going on! And I loved that!
I also liked the thing going on between him and Ali but I felt their relationship was a little underdeveloped. I would have liked to have seen more scenes between them with deeper conversations or even flashbacks!
Other than that, I loved all the weirdness, the twists, and the ending! I can’t wait to read more books by this author!
