9780983859420: The Breeders

The storm has come. Homosexuals, once an ostracized social minority, have taken over the world. They understood the dangers of an overpopulated planet, usurped government power, and created a culture of perfectly engineered families. But Grace Jarvis and Dex Wheelock are heterosexuals--part of the government's highly controlled backup plan for reproduction--and they have a problem: Grace is pregnant. Dex is the father. It is a crime that has only one consequence: banishment to the Antarctic Sanctuary, an isolated biological reserve where reproductive criminals are allowed to exist in peace, without disrupting the rest of civilization. Yet there are rumors that genocide has already begun and that the homosexuals are finally setting natural breeders on a path to extinction. This leaves Grace and Dex with only two choices: to succumb to the tyrannical regime, or run. They choose to run. Matthew J. Beier's debut novel tells the intimate story of two people bound by the force of life itself as they set out to protect their unborn child and find value for themselves in a world that has rendered them worthless. This rainbow-tinted reflection of our own society--part political satire and part dystopian thriller--is a novel you won't want to miss.

Review:

"Tense, dystopian thriller . . . Unforgettable." - Publishers Weekly

"Heart-wrenching . . . filled with passion and inspiration. Truly an engrossing read."-The Advocate Magazine

"This is the kind of book that makes one realize how wonderful and terrible it is to be human. This is the kind of book that bridges the gap between sorrow and joy." - Ty Crisp, Muse Manifesto

"What makes it so chilling is not just the parallels between now and then, but the glimmers of possibility in where good intentions have gone so horribly wrong...Beier does an amazing job of bringing [heterosexuals and homosexuals] together by the end, showing us that we're not so very different after all--for good, or for ill." - Bob Milne, Reviewer, Beauty in Ruins

"By the end of the book, you'll learn Beier isn't just a skilled writer--he's got serious balls." - Elizabeth Ellor, 043 Book Reviews
