“They tell me it’s for the good of humanity. That I’m saving our way of life with my body. They lie.”

Book Four in the award-winning, best-selling Breeders series.

Riley has survived madmen, deranged doctors, and false prophets. Her next task is uniting her family, which has been ripped apart by Nessa Vandewater, the Breeders’ enforcer. Her boyfriend Clay and brother Ethan are still missing. Only she can find them.

But on her way, Riley is stung by a scorpion. To ease her suffering, Auntie Bell shares the story of Riley’s mother, Janine, and how she escaped the Breeders.

Nearly twenty years in the past, Janine, an obedient Breeders girl, is nearing her seventeenth birthday, and the clock is ticking. She has two months to become pregnant, or she’ll be put out, sold into slavery . . . or worse. When her doctor informs her she’s infertile, she’s devastated. But some doctors lie, and one in particular seems to want Janine for his own . . .

Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)

Katie French does it again! The fourth book in the Breeders series is as good if not better than the previous three.

The Brothers picks up where The Benders ends. However, the story quickly changes, as most of the book centers around the story of Riley's mother, Janine. At first, I was a little apprehensive because I had grown attached to Riley and Clay, but leave it to Katie French to write a story just as compelling as her previous endeavors while introducing a new cast of characters.

Just as with the other books in the series, this one takes hold of you from the first chapter and doesn't let go. I was glued to the pages throughout, always wanting to know what happens next. The action was gripping, the writing was excellent, and the new main characters found a place in my heart the way that Riley and Clay had before.

If you've already read the first books in the series, reading The Brothers is a no-brainer for you. If you haven't started reading this series yet... what are you waiting for??
