It has been fifty years since the first Harvest. Hideous creatures, lethal and lightning-fast, rise from the ocean and hunt humans. Man hides underground in fear of the Harvesters.

It has been fifty years since the first Harvest. Hideous creatures, lethal and lightning-fast, were sown into the beds of Earth's oceans eons ago. Now every year, in service to a mad god, they rise from the depths and hunt humans.
Man hides underground in fear of the Harvesters. But he is also sought by other predators: the robots that for years were his companions are now driven to exterminate him in a warped mission of mercy.
In a race against time, a group of humans cross the United States in a desperate plot to destroy the Harvesters before the next cycle. As if psychotic robots, lobotomized cops and flesh-eating nomads weren't enough of a challenge, they may just invoke the wrath of the ancient god itself...
"The illicit love child of Lovecraft and Asimov. Never have my concepts of horror and disturbia been pushed so far. Dunwoody has done it again!"
--Benjamin Rogers, Author of FAITH & THE UNDEAD
"Dunwoody has proven once again why he is the post-apocalyptic master. His plot is tight, the characters are intriguing, and his writing hits the mark every time. THE HARVEST CYCLE will easily be remembered as one of the best books of the year."
--William Todd Rose, author of THE SEVEN HABITS OF HIGHLY INFECTIVE PEOPLE
"A respectful and unique nod to H.P. Lovecraft told by a young master storyteller. Dunwoody creates a dark apocalyptic future that is equal parts high octane action and violent well timed horror that will draw you in, terrify the hell out of you, and then leave you breathless and wanting more."
--Jonathan Moon, author of HEINOUS
"Dave Dunwoody makes me jealous. He has more clever ideas in one book than most manage in a career. THE HARVEST CYCLE is so full of smart and scary stuff that it leaves you spent and shaken."
--Robert R. Best, author of the MEMORIAL TRILOGY
