When the Breeders come for ya, there ain't no escape. They strap ya to a bed and all ya hear is the thud of your heart and the cries of your friends as they wheel ya down to hell. Then the doctors come. You squeeze your eyes shut and pray you can forget. But ya never do. Sixteen-year-old Riley Meemick is one of the world's last free girls. When Riley was born, her mother escaped the Breeders, the group of doctors using cruel experiments to bolster the dwindling human race. Her parents do everything possible to keep her from their clutches-- moving from one desolate farm after another to escape the Breeders' long reach. The Breeders control everything- the local war lords, the remaining factories, the fuel. They have unchecked power in this lawless society. And they're hunting Riley. When the local Sheriff abducts the adult members of her family and hands her mother over to the Breeders, Riley and her eight-year-old brother, Ethan, hiding in a shelter, are left to starve. Then Clay arrives, the handsome gunslinger who seems determined to help to make up for past sins. The problem is Clay thinks Riley is a bender-- a genderless mutation, neither male nor female. As Riley's affection for Clay grows she wonders can she trust Clay with her secret and risk her freedom? The three embark on a journey across the scarred remains of New Mexico-- escaping the Riders who use human sacrifice to appease their Good Mother, various men scrambling for luck, and a deranged lone survivor of a plague. When Riley is forced into the Breeder's hospital, she learns the horrible fate of her mothera fate she'll share unless she can find a way out.

Mehso-so

Decent book, I read it in a single night and enjoyed it. It's very similar to a book I read called Breeder Nation (which I very much recommend, one of my favorites), but The Breeders did have its own spin. It was definitely worth the read, I just don't feel very passionate about this book if you know what I mean...

Linear Sounds interesting and disterbing at the sametime 7mo
Jeralyn Yes it definitely was, I liked it pretty well, but I gave it a so-so because like I said in my bio, it's just like a book called Breeder Nation (which is one of my favorites and loved by everyone I force to read it😂) and I would recommend both books, Breeder Nation a little more because it's just soooo goood😂 7mo
Exbrarian I liked it, but I had not read Breeder Nation, so The Breeders felt fresh. I also got this in a “dystopian 6-pack“ budget bundle, so my expectations were low. 6mo

In a world where one out of nine births are boys, girls are a rarity. Meet Riley, a sixteen year old who has had to hide her gender her whole life for if she is caught she will be forced into a breeding programme to keep the population alive. The concept of this book is very good, it really needs a proof read as there's a ton of spelling mistakes but overall it kept me turning the pages.
