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.

***Shelly – #NerdGirlXrayer’s  Review***
As a Breeder Seventeen lives a perfect life.  Her home is the Sanctuary and her sole job is to provide genetically perfect children for the Controlled Repopulation Program.  She starts to question her perfect life and it leads to trouble for her.  She is rescued from trouble by a rogue Enforcer named Pax.  With Pax by her side she learns of a whole new world and learns of some deep dark secrets of the Sanctuary.

The characters are well developed in this book.  The time is taken to develop Pax’s history and you sympathize with everything he has been through.  Pria is naive at first because they only let her learn so much at the Sanctuary.  As she sees the world and learns about life outside the Sanctuary she becomes curious to learn everything she can.  She also becomes a brave individual who wants to be help when she can.  The secondary characters in this book are also well developed in the fact that you get to know their past also.

The story line of this book was full of action and kept you reading to learn what happened next.  The Unified World Order want to repopulate the human kind with ‘perfect and controlled amounts of people’ after the world has been devastated by three great tragedies but with what repercussions?   The secrets that unfold were mind boggling at times.  This book was believable to a point that you did thing long and hard about some of the events actually taking place.  It also makes you think about the “perfect” person and world.

It does not end on a cliffhanger but does end leaving you wanting to learn more about what the future of Pria and Pax hold.  If you like Dystopian you will love this book. If you have not read Dystopian then I suggest you pick up this book and you will fall in love with the genre.
