Everything about Seventeen’s life is perfect, from her genetics, to her home in Sanctuary, to her status as a Breeder in the Unified World Order. But all that changes when she meets a rogue Enforcer named Pax, who infiltrates Sanctuary and targets her for extraction from the Controlled Repopulation Program. Pax seems to know a little too much about her, and he plants dangerous doubts in her mind that accuse Sanctuary of hiding a dark secret, and that cause Seventeen to question everything she’s ever known.
When Seventeen’s life is threatened, she has little choice but to run away from Sanctuary with Pax. But for Breeders, contact with men is forbidden by law, and even the simple act of taking Pax’s hand is treason.
Mired in confusion, Seventeen travels with Pax to the outside world and takes the name Pria, the identity of her childhood. But she is far from certain she’s made the right decision when they discover an entire community of people who should no longer exist.
Seventeen, now Pria, is thrust into a position as a key player in a dangerous bid to bring down the Unified World Order. Meanwhile, Pax’s attachment to her and her growing attraction to him contribute to the ever-growing mysteries in her life.
Pria’s journey from a sheltered, naïve Breeder to a rebel agent requires not only external transformation but self-discovery. As her world crumbles, Pria must decide who she is and what she really believes.
But the truth comes at a cost, and uncovering it will require a greater treason than she could ever have imagined.
Do you know how, when you're expecting something good, you prepare yourself for it? You anticipate the emotions that may sweep through you, the reactions you might show and yet, when you do get to experience it, it goes way beyond your expectations. 

The whole thing blew your mind. 

K.B. Hoyle does that. After having the privilege of reviewing her Gateway Chronicles series, I have already prepared myself to be taken away by this book. I was beyond excited and giddy to be once more reading something of hers. And yet, after finishing Breeder, the feelings and reactions I have were something I may have not immediately anticipated. 

Breeder makes me hunger for more. 

Set in a dystopic world ruined by humans, the few who survived wanted to find a way to restore the world to its former perfection. To achieve that perfection, some rose from the rest and decided to remake the world. Under their control, that is. They controlled the population, the herd, taking into heart the phrase "survival of the fittest." Hence, the perfect humans to procreate were gathered in order to make the perfect race, devoid of any anomalies that makes a human being "different". 

Welcome to the Controlled Population Program where the women were treated as procreating machines deigned to produce the perfect human beings. 

And Breeder's story revolves on a certain girl who belonged to the program. 

I like how Ms. Hoyle developed the story. She doesn't immediately give the solutions in one book. She gives it by bits and pieces that would become whole as the series ends. And yet, you never get tired of reading her story. It's like a journey where you may stumble and fall but you keep pushing because of the destination you have in mind; because you know the reward you'll get in the end will probably be the best. 

K.B. Hoyle is a bestselling author, a public speaker, a creative writing instructor, and a classical history teacher who uses her knowledge of the ancient and medieval worlds to pen speculative and fantasy tales for people of all ages. She has been married since the age of twenty to the love of her life, with whom she has four wonderful children. Find out more about her at

Praise for Breeder
"Breeder was anything but a let down. The characters were extremely well written, making me able to empathize with Pria and Pax and the situation they find themselves in. I kept turning the pages because I just had to find out what happened to these people and, to my shock, finished the book in a day! "  - Angela  Goodreads Review
