The second book in the The Fifth Empire Trilogy by K.P Ambroziak continues to detail Vincent du Maurier’s struggle to save humanity, in a journal format. It picks up where the first story left off, and pulls you right into it… There is not a dull moment in The Harvest of Vincent du Maurier.
The strange love story between Vincent and Evelyn continues to grow, and Vincent does his best to protect Evelyn and his camp. Corpses continue to linger around the perimeter, making everyone uneasy, especially Evelyn who has been having nightmares about the undead invading their camp. When she gives birth, Vincent is excited about the prospect of what this child symbolizes; renewal, and the possibility of a healthy population in the future. Unfortunately, Evelyn’s dreams become a reality when they learn their territory isn’t completely impenetrable… Vincent is forced to make a deal with the devil in order to protect what matters to him the most. Taking advantage of the situation and an old souvenir, Vincent is able to get what he wants, but it may be too late…
I love the way K.P. Ambroziak writes. She has this amazing ability to fully engross her readers into the story. Vincent isn’t the most likable of characters, and yet you root for him all along because truly you want him to succeed with his mission to create a new world. This might be a challenge for some Authors, but K.P. Ambroziak pulled this off seemingly effortlessly.
5 very well deserved stars!
