To secure his legacy,
Commander Dak, a ruling Alpha of planet Parseon, purchases Omra, a
breeder slave. He intends to impregnate her, produce a son, and hand her
off to his anointed beta partner. As Dak and Omra discover a sexual
bliss banned by law, he begins to question Protocol-sanctioned male
domination, causing him to jeopardize his command and endanger the life
of the woman he has come to love.
Breeder explores the concepts
of gender roles and social prohibitions against deviant behavior. It
includes graphic M/F and some M/M sexual content and domestic
discipline.(I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
You can't go wrong with a book by Cara Bristol. I've read every one of her books and have loved them all. When I first heard about Breeder on Cara Bristol's blog I was thrilled. In general I am not a huge sci-fan fan, but I do love alpha males and knew before reading the book that it was going to be a favorite of mine. I was right. Dak is everything one would wish for in an alpha - strong, confident, and extremely dominant.
I loved the whole concept in Breeder of a male dominated world where females had no rights. Not that I'd want to live in a world like that. I loved it because the main characters Dak and Omra questioned the society and worked to change it. It was like reading about women's right to vote, but in a futuristic world. An extremely interesting concept and very different from a lot of what I read. It was like a cross between 1984 and Downton Abbey.
Cara's characters were all extremely well developed, as usual. The whole world Parseon world was also very detailed. I truly felt transported to a new place. I understood the culture, society, and people themselves.
I highly recommend Breeder and can't wait for the next in the series.
