The jaws of winter are clamping down on the city of Halifax. As the light recedes, new terrors arise.
Months after the war with Borland and his vicious were-brood, Kirk and Morris are experiencing curious after-effects. They're stronger, faster, and no longer vulnerable to the sharp sting of silver. There is one concern, however. They're forever hungry, and nothing they eat provides the same nourishment as what they consumed on the island of Newfoundland. And when a mysterious stranger rides into Moses Morris's territory wishing to hunt, the were-warden knows the visitor isn't after deer.
The ultimate race begins as Kirk and Morris lead a host of wardens to put down one of their own, before the next full moon, when an entire city will be subjected to a voracious appetite.

I loved this book.it has absolutely everything . a tortured anti-hero and a villain it has ancillary characters who are growing developing. it has an ongoing overpowering seam and consequence that overtakes all the characters involved. It also has a expanding world and a lore that is unraveling to the next book .Breeds 2 really continues to add solidity to so many aspects of the story .I don't want to give any spoilers but it's just a fantastic read and Keith Blackmore again doing fantastic things. I love the narration here and the place is definitely superb and the melee sequences emotional Cliffhangers really sequence s that set it apart from other things I have read in this genre grab it up like a tasty raw teak.
Loved the book, the wolves and the villain, lots of blood
The descriptions of the villain, I could see him in my mind's eye, scary stuff. A real monster.
All of them.
The mall scene with the police team.
Can't wait for the next book.
I like intelligent well written science fiction with flawed or developed characters, Frank Herbert, Frederick Pohl, and Alaistar Reynolds.
The two protagonists are very relatable and likeable. Mad that I have to wait for the 3rd story.

Once again I have a confession to start with, I have a bit of a man crush on Mr Keith C Blackmore. His 'Mountain Man' series and his first free title 'The Hospital' got me absolutely hooked on the zombie genre. Now hundreds of dollars later I am still consuming zombie titles faster than a fast zombie doing something very fast! But now he has really pushed me over the edge, he has forced me out into another genre. Lucky for me this new genre has some slim pickings, and hopefully won't cost me as much. The 'werewolf' genre! Seriously Mr Blackmore, I can just give you my bank details and you can take my cash as soon as I get paid.
The first book in this series left me hanging and I feared I would not get to see the second one. So imagine my joy when I see book 2 had been released. I was even happier when I noticed Sean Runnette was again the narrator. Sean's voice is the perfect match for every one of Mr Blackmore's created characters. It seems like a match made in heaven, except for one thing. Sean Runnette in my mind is a very slow talking narrator. I have always found myself speeding up his narrated titles. Sometimes up to 1.5x speed. However, in this case the story is that good I would have sped it up anyway because I just wanted to know more and I wanted to know now!
However, with the speed of the narration in mind and with the shortish length of this title (9hours) your dollar per hour ratio is affected. It might be important if you are on a budget. You will easily blow your cash on a title you will listen to in one sitting!
I found this one even better than the first and look forward to what happens in the future with this series. If only Mr Blackmore could figure out a way to introduce Gus from 'Mountain Man' to 'Breeds'
This fatman could not get enough of this one. I will give this one my two thumbs up a big grin and a stupid sounding 'heeeeeeeeeeeeeey' (fonzie style)... and please Mr Blackmore let there be a third in the series, and let it be fast!
This book is just as good if not better than Breeds book 1. I have listened to all of Keith C. Blackmore's books on Audible and they are all great, can't wait till he releases another one on here.
Considering that I have a reading disorder, the Audible compamy has quenched a great day of time with Audible as my greatest personal fre
I have to admit that of the hundreds of books I have enjoyed over the years this one stands on its own. The idea, graphic violence, location, and sensory detail that is written is a giant leap outside of "the usual". I burned through both Book 1 and Book 2 as though it was a blood red steak after weeks in the arctic. Rest assured that you will absolutly love this IF, you can handle the blood. HAVE FUN.
if you like and are familiar with the author and the narrator then you wont be disappointed. I love the genre, and both the narrator and author are back like old friends. they won't disappoint.
"Excellent but I want more"
The first book was a pleasant surprise, but the second went by too fast. Can't wait for the next round, just hope it is longer.. Sound like my wife now.
"even better than the 1st!"
loved this story. great action. getting to really like Morris + Kirk.
if you loved the first, or havnt listened yet. Do it!
Only tried this because Sean Runnette is my new favourite reader and the gamble paid off big style. Fantastic story and some brilliant characters with great turn of phrases - there's gore and laughs aplenty. Can't wait for the next instalment.
"Well worth one of my valuable credits."
I spent quite a bit of time searching through Audible SciFi titles for a new audiobook and rather reluctantly thought I'd give Breeds Book 1 a chance. 10 minutes in and I was feeling so glad I had! The author depicted the snowy wilderness of Halifax so well I could see it as I listened. The subject has been somewhat overdone in recent years but within this storyline was both intriguing and different though quite graphic at times! I had downloaded Book 2 well before the end of Book 1 and listened to it straight afterwards.
I was sorry when Book 2 finished as was engrossed and enjoying the story so much. Disappointed there's no Book 3 yet but realise a real talent cannot be hurried or forced so I await Book 3 with bated breath!
yes, as i found it compelling and enjoyable
the story line was well written and thought through
yes, yes, and yes
bring on book 3 soon please
Great follow on from breeds book one and can't wait for book 3. Original story and great performance. Keep them coming.
what a excellent book .loved the first one as well please let their be more
