Read The Breeders (Breeders #1) Online Free - 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 shot and forced into the Breeder's hospital, she learns the horrible fate of her mother—a fate she'll share unless she can find a way out.

This was an enjoyable read despite the common theme, with interesting characters and an engaging writing style. Unfortunately it is littered with typos and the plot runs a bit thin with nothing really unexpected or surprising on the journey from beginning to end.
Perhaps nudging towards 3.5, but I...

Honestly I'll read the next book purely out of curiosity but this one wasn't so amazing.
The blurb is literally a play-by-play of the entire book. There's no real suspense or surprise. So anything I say in this honestly cannot be considered a spoiler.
-I didn't hate it but there was so m...

this book says that it is for fans of the hunger games, but it conveys none of the positive messages thast the hunger games does. it glorifies violence, has a horrible plotline, and is just an amazingly stupid, very badly written book.

However reading Katie French’s “The Breeders” I found the novel broke from the stereotypical events of this genre that starts the characters off in a tragic setting, and con...

I have never been so glad for a book to be over in my life. I have no idea if it was because of the fact it was an audiobook or what, but I had a really hard time with this. Riley is an idiot. "Hey I think I'm going to do something dangerous and stupid, because, well I can." oh and then "Let me n...

Getting through this was a struggle. Between the inconsistent narrator and the numerous grammatical errors, I just couldn't stay invested.
