Publisher's Summary

They believed Daeios would be a safe haven.

They were wrong.

Fleeing apocalyptic weather, a young survivalist woman and her family seek safety deep underground. But a new danger awaits them.

When the leaders of the shelter announce their plans to repopulate the earth using all fertile females, Shea knows she will be forced to become a breeder. Horrified at her impending fate, Shea must make the gut-wrenching decision whether to breed with an elderly, sadistic man and bear his child, or to fight the breeding, knowing that defiance will endanger her life and that of those she loves most.

A dystopian thriller with overtones of The Handmaid’s Tale, Shea’s chilling story will appeal to listeners with an interest in family and survival.

Contains mature situations and language.

we're not far from this..

Well done . I thought It had everything. Climate change, a corrupt socialist government, genocide, sex, murder, gun control, drugs, shooting your way out of that government, even tipped a cap at the pro life pro choice debate Well executed!! I will listen again and look forward to the next one!!

Glad I took a chance!!

This is my first review after listening to 200+ audio-books.

I took a chance on two newcomers: narrator Tiana Saunders and author Colleen Eccles Penor.

I mention the narrator first because I find I cannot stick with an audio-book--no matter how compelling the story--if the narrator doesn't bring it to life for me. Fortunately, Saunders did just that! (I can only imagine what she could do in a full Audible studio. That's something I'd pay to "hear.")

Eccles Penor's story concept is intriguing. I’d describe it as a hybrid of post-apocalyptic fiction and young adult thriller — with a healthy dose of Handmaids Tale thrown in. Be warned: it’s not for the faint of heart. At first, I found it difficult to root for the main character. Fortunately, her character developed with the story. 🙂

While not absolutely necessary, there is room for a sequel. I hope Eccles Penor plans to write one!
