Product Description

Product Description

Abe put an end to the threat of the Devourer once and for all.

So why does the world keep getting more dangerous?

Unsettling events pile up one after another: animal corpses appear on the front porch each night, an abandoned graveyard in the North Carolina woods is now home to something unnatural, and wooden men with eerily familiar faces are spotted lurking in the nearby town of Halfway.

Abe finds himself caught in a game set in motion long before the rise of mankind. A game in which even the Devourer was merely a pawn and where losing means the death of every man, woman, and child on earth.

Standing with him are the survivors of Belmont: Anne, Chuck, Leon, and his old squadmate, Henry "The Professor" Monroe. Together they intend to hold the line against the encroaching darkness and prove that there are still things in the light to be feared.

HASH(0x9e9ed60c) out of 5 stars Can't wait for more. Nov. 18 2012
By a. guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"Liar's Harvest", the second book in Langlois's Emergent Earth series, continues the adventure begun in "Bad Radio", as the not-quite human Abe and his friends must save the world again. Nonstop action, just enough gore, and the flawed heroes make this an interesting read. To me, this series is vaguely reminiscent of the later books of F. Paul Wilson's Repairman Jack series. Hopefully the author takes that as the compliment that it's meant at. "Liar's Harvest" moves quickly with no breaks in the action -- my only regret is reading it so soon after its release, and now having to wait for the next installment.

If you haven't read "Bad Radio", I highly recommend reading it before tackling "Liar's Harvest". "Liar's Harvest" features new antagonists, but contains frequent references to the events on the first book, and the second book will make a lot more sense if you understand how Abe became what he is.

HASH(0x9e9ed660) out of 5 stars Not quite as good as Bad Radio Dec 21 2012
By Timothy J. Drozinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I gave Michael Langlois' debut novel and first in this Emergent Earth series, Bad Radio, high praise based on the fact that, for an independent work, it was highly polished. Unfortunately, Mr. Langlois seems to have regressed in that area, as I found the text fraught with editorial lapses. Luckily the story itself carries the day, making up for a number of small problems.

The same characters were present for this follow-up to Bad Radio, but the introduction to the story was a little jarring, as if the Bad Radio manuscript had simply been ripped in half. Even in well-established and commercially successful literary franchises the author typically will briefly reintroduce the major players in subsequent volumes of the series; not so here, where the action pretty much picks right up where it left off.

The other niggling deficiency for me was that this story veers away from the previous villain, which I felt was rich with potential for followup, and introduces a new source of conflict, with yet another god from another dimension. This suggests that potential future additions to the series will become formulaic - powerful being from nether dimension wreaks havoc, Abe and company clean up - without ever really developing the characters further. And that's probably the root of the deficiencies of this book; the characters, while admirably acquitting themselves in terms of the action, didn't really seem to grow.

On a positive note, the story remains intriguing, the action riveting, and the author's attention to detail is superb. I hope that a third book in the Emergent Earth series is forthcoming.

HASH(0x9f69a90c) out of 5 stars Not as good as Bad Radio Dec 23 2012
By C. Keane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I think it must be fairly unusual for an author's third book to be not as good as his first two. I loved Bad Radio, and loved Walker even more.

Liar's Harvest is OK. It continues on the story of Abe and gives us some clues as to why the Emergent Earth is emerging. But I finished the book a few days ago and I'm fairly hard-pressed to actually remember that much detail about it. That's opposed to Bad Radio that stayed with me for quite a long time.

The story seemed a bit too formulaic, and if I hadn't developed empathy for the main protagonists in Bad Radio, I think I would have had a hard time connecting with them in Liar's Harvest.

I'll be curious to see what Langlois' next book is like, and I'll still buy it. The summary is, I think, that when the next book comes out, I'll find that I could have skipped Liar's Harvest and not lost anything from the overall story.

HASH(0xb3ddb24c) out of 5 stars Ok Michael, ready for the next one Dec 2 2012
By Lee A. Ratcliff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is absolutely great. I LOVED IT. It built on Bad Radio, and added even more depth to the characters. The book moved along quickly, and was never slow or boring. I could have easily read it in one sitting, if I had had the spare time. Overall a great book. Looking forward to the next installment.
HASH(0x9e9eda98) out of 5 stars I want the third! June 23 2013

Liar's Harvest by Michael Langlois is the second book in The Emergent Earth series. After the horrifying events that took place in Bad Radio Abe and the rest of the gang are living with Henry trying to figure out their next move. It seems like the world is getting worse and they are pretty sure it relates to the events that they had a part in.

There is still some strange stuff going on around the group, especially with Abe. I'm not going to go into any major detail due to the fact that it could really spoil some stuff from the first book. When an old human foot shows up on the porch one day Abe, Chuck, Leon, and Anne head to an old cemetery and are attacked by creatures that pull themselves out of the ground. During the melee a fox drops a delivery off for Leon on the battlefield and it begins a whole new adventure.

Once again Michael has written a fantastic horror/action novel. This is a great example of the second book building off of the first wonderfully. With the majority of the character's personalities already being established the story and interactions really shine. There is some pretty amusing dialogue that works well to break up the tension of what is a very serious situation. The plot of the book also really stood apart for me. I haven't read anything remotely similar to this and very much enjoyed it.

I'm very impressed with this author and will be checking out his other series, starting with Walker, soon.
