Darker Than I Was Expecting
By now the world of Wasteland, a post-apocalyptic earth over 100 years after solar flares in 2012 decimated life on the planet, is at least familiar, if not particularly a fun vacation spot. In fact, this bleak, desolate world is a shattering backdrop for the four novellas by four authors that feature and highlight the four different caste systems that are left for women in that world. Eden Bradley assumes the mantel for the third book and offers us Nitara's story. Bor

Another excellent tale of love in the Wasteland. This series is fantastic. I hope there will be more to follow!! Lots more :)

The world building, characterization and voice, it would be hard to tell which author wrote which story, if you didn't know -- they are all written as if by the same person.

I really can't believe so many women before Nitara went through the ritual with absolutely no feelings for their sacrifice. I loved how she questioned everything around her and ultimately went with her heart.

I was very lucky to have gotten to read this book before anyone else. LOVED IT!
First paragraph: The scent of burning sage hung heavy in the air, along with the tinkling of cymbals and a keen anticipation. The citizens of Kroy Wen filled the Temple of the Great Goddess—The Unnamed One. Hundreds of men gathered together in the vaulted caves that housed the Temple, pressing as close as the guards would allow.

"The Breeder" is the third story in the multiple-authored world of "The Wasteland", a well-built post-apocalyptic world about 100 years or so after some type of nuclear
After The Wanderer, I found The Breeder a bit lacking. The world was still as intriguing, the women forced to serve as breeding facilities by religion, the kidnapping of the more sturdy men of the Wanderer clans to get a healthier population...
The girl who has doubts about killing a man as a sacrifice for her Goddess of love. It's all excellent. Unfortunately the story never took off. I liked Akaash, with his love for his mate and his sense of failure and shame at being caught. I liked Nitara we

There is a lot of steam (ahem) in this book. M/M/F, M/M, and M/F, so if any of those combinations bother you, perhaps you should find a different book to read. For such a short book, this was pretty well-packed. I haven't read any of the other "Wasteland" books so I can't say whether I suffer from some fundamental lack of information, but I had no problem understanding the plot. IMO, this can be read as a stand-alone.

I do wish we got to know Dhatri more; right now, he seems a bit like a placeho
Warning: Sexual acts in a prison cell, by the sea, in the desert, on an altar, with every possible combination of dirty deeds between two men and one very lucky woman, and all of it hot enough to melt sand! And her panties. If she were wearing any.

I think the warning was better than the book...this was not my fav of the Wastelands series...maybe the pirates from the last one spoiled me...had some smexy scenes, but just couldn't get attached to the characters enough to care...
best of the series. good sex scenes
This was a well developed story. I liked that Nitara questioned her role as a breeder and their practices. We were able to experience Nitara and Akaash's growing to care for each other. The scenes between her Akaash and Dhatri were pretty hot.
not my favorite in the wasteland series... i found the beginning to be very boring but in the end it didn't disappoint
Enjoyable read, will certainly look for others in the series.
I hope the next one in the series is better.
