Book Review: "Organ Reapers" (Shay West)

How far would you go to rescue your people from dying too soon?

And, on the other hand, what would you be willing to sacrifice, even up to and including your grasp of reality, to stop a killer?

Tani and Keena are Harvesters from another world, taxed with traveling to earth to find the human match for an ill person on their own planet and killing the human to obtain the necessary organs, then returning home before anyone sees them. When they are sent to kill a child and develop a conscience in the face of such an atrocity, their journey to stop the forces that be at the monastery will take them back to a world that isn't their own.

Eli Robins and Ava Aguilar are detectives (from planet earth) taxed with finding and stopping whoever has been killing people and desecrating the bodies for their organs. After weeks of legwork with no answers, a chance break-through finally promises a solution ... but only if the detectives are willing to set aside their preconceived notions of reality and think way, way outside the box.

Allow me to present, with great pleasure and enthusiasm, Organ Reapers, fiction by talented Colorado author Dr. Shay West.

Part science fiction, part suspense thriller, Organ Reapers is all intrigue and tension from the very first page, complete with three-dimensional characters, some human and some as otherworldly as aliens or vampires in other books. West explores themes of life and death, obedience and betrayal, free will and fate, and the very definition of a life worth saving, all seamlessly intertwined with the story.

The plot itself is compelling and will keep readers turning pages, racing from one world to the other to follow the respective character pairs (Tani and Keena, versus Eli and Ava) to their final inevitable meeting. And as satisfying plot twists go, let's just say that you won't see the climax or its aftermath coming until it's too late.

A fascinating, refreshing, and wholly gratifying take on the age-old debate on the value of life, Organ Reapers is a work for anyone who enjoys science fiction, world-building, fantastical premises, mystery, and unexpected suspense in the most unusual places.
