It has a dark side to it that will have triggers for some readers, but it also has a gentler side as well. Parseon males do not value females. They have no rights and must do as bidded by all males.
They are seen as inferior and simple minded. The females are basically slaves to the Alpha and Beta males. The females are raped, beaten and this is considered the normal. As you can probably guess, this was the part I struggled with. What I liked was the dominant Alpha in Dak that embraced his planets protocols until he met Omra. Dak is The Alpha of all Alphas. He believes in the protocol but does not wish to inflict harm just for pleasure.
When he picks Omra to be his breeder, he starts to care for her very quickly and struggles with sticking to protocol. For being The Alpha, Dak showed a lot of care and concern, not only for Omra but for others as well. What Bristol describes is the modern feminist worst nightmare. Frankly, it gave me the chills. I loved that Dak was completely overwhelmed by his feeling towards Omra and even though he disciplined her when she messed up spanked he never hurt her.
Omra showed Dak how wrong his teaching on women are. But like always the writing, character and world building were superb. I am not sure enjoyed is the correct word because I was feeling more outraged by the treatment of the women, however, Breeder was really good and I am giving it 4 Boundless Stars. Devilwmn , Great start to this new series!! A note- for sensitive readers, this book is a dark read with some dark themes.
I enjoyed the story, and it was a fast easy read for me. On Parseon women are likened to the beasts and are treated no better, if not worse. Their only use is breeding, slave labor and an outlet for their needs if they arise. However, Corren is not so enthused with arrival of Omra.
Though being with a breeder is for procreation only and not for enjoyment, Dak breaks protocol to be with her, while fighting his feelings because it is considered so wrong.
So dark stuff aside, I enjoyed Dak and Omra. Note--In Parseon society an Alpha uses his beta for enjoyment and the breeders are for procreation, so there are MM themes to the books, I know some people are bothered by that.
I feel like this book set up well the premise for the upcoming books in the series and am really looking forward to reading the next book, Terran. Happy Reading!! More Books by Cara Bristol.
Breeder - Breeder #1
Breeder delivers neither the depth of worldbuilding I look for in an alternate reality story or the depth of characterization I look for in a romance. Dak is Alpha, a military governor of a province of the planet Parseon, where ruling Protocol dictates that women are relegated to the roles of Breeder if fertile and servant or slave if not. Attracted by her virginity as proved by a physical lock on her vagina, yup , Dak purchases Omra to be his breeding slave. It only appears short of ghastly because it is superior to the treatment she gets from the breeder center manager. The author does not portray this as erotic, which I appreciated; rather, Dak has been told not only that he can legally flog a woman and stick fingers in her, but that he must. Dak goes from sexually assaulting a woman to defying the laws of his planet in just a couple of chapters.

Terran (Breeder 2)
Released on 19 June Pages: Source: Author The Delight Another world, another race, and definitely a whole other way of life that is on the cusp of change in this steamy sci-fi romance. Review Breeder is the first in a series that has been around for some time, but has gotten a face lift with its new indie release. To my knowledge, it is the same book as what was previously released. It should say quite a bit that I had no plans to finish this book as swiftly as I did. I received the book and was just glancing through it when I loaded it to my device… and two hours later… So apologies to my reading queue, but Breeder insisted on being read then and there.
