Breeders_Cover_250xpThe 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.  There are rumors that genocide has already begun and the homosexuals are finally setting natural breeders on a path to extinction, which 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.
