The Breeder Cycle Book 1 Published December 11th 2014 by The Writer's Coffee Shop
Breeder to me, is a dystopian novel aimed at the Teen market, but I thoroughly enjoyed the story myself and I am way past being a teenager. It reminds me of a number of novels I have read including, The Hunger Games and the Delirium Trilogy by Lauren Oliver. If you are a fan of these types of novels then I don't think you will be disappointed with Breeder.
What is the novel about?
We first meet the narrator of the book, number 17 who is a Breeder for the Unified World Order. Her genetics are perfect, her life is perfect in her home, the Sanctuary. There she lives with her 'sisters' about 30 other girls who are all genetically and physically superior to other humans, which is why they have been chosen to be a carrier. They have their lives controlled, from what they eat to how much exercise they do, and to how to behave. They have been taught about the devastation of mankind and that the only way to stop it happening again is to have all deformities removed from the gene pool, this include those with freckles, those with ginger or blonde hair, the list goes on. Number 17 and her sisters are given the best nutrition and care so that they can carry a baby and create a healthy genetically perfect child.
Number 17 has already carried one child, but during the second carry she has to have a procedure to get rid of the child which leaves her questioning the UWO, 'Mother' who runs the Sanctuary and everything she thought about her life. As she comes round from the procedure she sees a man who tells her his name is Pax and asks for her name which is Pria. No men are allowed in the sanctuary so it leaves her feeling uncertain. When she asks Mother, she tells her she made it up in her head, but as Pria starts to become more and more unhappy, will Pax be the escape she needs and what happens when she learns the real truth of the United World Order?
The next novel in the series is called Criminal and is out in 2015, and I for one, cannot wait.
