CLC Press Release and Review
Literary Classics is pleased to announce that the book, Breeder by Alabama author K.B. Hoyle, has been selected to receive the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.

Number 17 (named Pria by her childhood friends) has been experiencing vague, dreamlike visions, coupled with mild depression. She knows she's not supposed to ask questions, but she just can't help herself. Did she really see a man in the breeding compound? Surely it must have been a dream, since men are not aloud anywhere near the women selected for their traits of genetic perfection to repopulate Gaia Earth. As she seeks to find answers without appearing to be too inquisitive, she begins to question the validity of the Unified World Order's take on the value of humanity. Yet, her entire life she's been trained to believe that, through the controlled population program, the UWO has created a world devoid of imperfection. Her role in making this happen is paramount and it is an honor and a privilege to carry out this task.
Author K.B. Hoyle's Breeder is a dystopian treasure. With characters that are genuine and quite tangible, the story nearly leaps off the pages of this book which expertly holds the reader's attention from the first page to the last. This book will appeal to a broad audience and is highly recommended.

Everything about Seventeen’s life is perfect, from her genetics, to her home in Sanctuary, to her status as a Breeder in the Unified World Order. But all that changes when she meets a rogue Enforcer named Pax, who infiltrates Sanctuary and targets her for extraction from the Controlled Repopulation Program. Pax seems to know a little too much about her, and he plants dangerous doubts in her mind that accuse Sanctuary of hiding a dark secret, and that cause Seventeen to question everything she’s ever known.
When Seventeen’s life is threatened, she has little choice but to run away from Sanctuary with Pax. But for Breeders, contact with men is forbidden by law, and even the simple act of taking Pax’s hand is treason.
Mired in confusion, Seventeen travels with Pax to the outside world and takes the name Pria, the identity of her childhood. But she is far from certain she’s made the right decision when they discover an entire community of people who should no longer exist.
Seventeen, now Pria, is thrust into a position as a key player in a dangerous bid to bring down the Unified World Order. Meanwhile, Pax’s attachment to her and her growing attraction to him contribute to the ever-growing mysteries in her life.
Pria’s journey from a sheltered, naïve Breeder to a rebel agent requires not only external transformation but self-discovery. As her world crumbles, Pria must decide who she is and what she really believes.
But the truth comes at a cost, and uncovering it will require a greater treason than she could ever have imagined.
Praise for Breeder
"Breeder was anything but a let down. The characters were extremely well written, making me able to empathize with Pria and Pax and the situation they find themselves in. I kept turning the pages because I just had to find out what happened to these people and, to my shock, finished the book in a day! " - Angela Goodreads Review
