Decades have elapsed since The Creators inflicted their vision on the planet. The population menace is tamed, resources are plentiful, and climate concerns abate. A sustainable world order has been achieved.

But the rigid restrictions of P-Class torment Shawn Lowe. Movements are tracked, conversations scrutinized, conformity enforced. It’s wrong. The Laws of Earthism are wr

Creator Class by K.M. Breaky is a smart, thought-provoking, and disturbingly plausible vision of the future that will forever color my view of the world as we know it.

Life in the year 2083 is a utopia. Over population, lack of resources, war and conflict are a thing of the past and people are happy, truly happy. So why can't Shawn Lowe join them in that happiness? Perhaps it's due to his Nana's hints of past freedoms lost or maybe it's the sense that there must be more to life than wearing himse

Cover:
I'm not a big fan of this cover... It kind of bores me. Where is the spark, something that catches my eyes. It is to generic and in my eyes doesn't do the book justice.

First Thought:
Yesss! Another YA dystopia series for me to get into. The world is divided into classes, people are in the dark, and The Creators have complete control of the lowly P- Class who know literally nothing.. Sounds interesting. Ignorance is bliss after all right?

The characters are believable and easy to relate to. N

Creator Class (The Creator Class Series) is going to be a book that I think about for a very long time. Breakey poses very poignant questions to the modern age about what we as people can stomach for the longevity of humanity and what we’re doing with our world and the vast freedoms that we enjoy today. In Creator Class (The Creator Class Series), the world has endured a Great Transformation that was, at its core, the slaughter of most human inhabitants. The eco-system is thriving.

If you could peek into the future, would you?

KM Breakey gives much more than that with this story.

The year is 2083. Of the 16 billion people who inhabited Earth, only a little over one billion remain.

This extermination was not done by the Hand of God, nor was it done by Mother Nature. No. this was done by men.

That’s no surprise. We are one of the few living creatures on the planet who regularly wage war on each other. But this was not caused by war. Rather, it was by design. One man’s attempt to

I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

Creator Class, set in 2083-2084, tackles the theme of overpopulation, class separation, and total government control. Overpopulation became a huge problem in the early 21st century, around 2020ish, so extreme measures were taken to cut population and attempt to save the earth. When these measures were taken, the earth's population was around 16 billion. In this world, 60 or so years later, the population stands at a strictl

Creator Class by K.M. Breakey

I picked this book up and read it very quickly. The pages literarly flew by (ok, not literarly but they moved across my Kindle pretty fast). The author's writing style is fluid and smooth and his use of dialogue to push the story forward is fantastic. I could almost hear the different characters' voices in my head going back and forth with each - well done! Too often, I find authors use dialogue in place of telling the story. Not so with Breakey. His style drew me in

Although I had some idea of the content of this book when I received it; I read the blurb :); I had no idea as to the quality of the book. I can gladly say that I enjoyed this book very much, reading it at every opportunity, and finding myself thinking about the book while at work.

My first impression was that the book flowed well, not too slow that you end up speed reading to get to more exciting bits; a thing I can be guilty of; and not too fast that you're left breathless and feeling like you

*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Creator Class is a story set in the not too distant future, 2083-2084, and it addresses some of the issues we are facing today, like over population, and class separation. The story centers around Shawn Lowe a member of the ‘lower’ P(people)-class, a class where they are constantly tracked, their conversations are monitored looking for anti-government, anti-Earthism thoughts, and above all conformity is enforced.

It is no easy feat to find a book that is completely awesome from cover to cover. In fact, I would say that it is quite difficult. What is easy? Falling completely for Creator Class, which is one of those books. I just finished reading the novel, and now I am writing this review looking out at the bright blue of the Mediterranean and the Sicilian skyline. And everything about that is awesome.

Creator Class is action-packed, interesting, intense, and unique.

I was lucky to get a free copy of this book should I review it. The first few page were quite confusing due to all the names and abbreviations given such as TNC, DMZ and many more which were mentioned with them continuing to be problematic throughout the book, however the reader was told what they stand for with most other reader likely to not have the same problem with forgetting what they meant. Another negative point about the book was (again probley due to my lack of memory) the large number ...more

I was given a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

K.M Breakey has written a thought provoking book that reminded me of Nazi Germany, to an extent.

Gus Law has changed the world. After culling off a major portion of the human population and wiping out many of the worlds languages life seems perfect. At least for the C-Classers.

Meanwhile in P-Class saying the wrong thing could end up getting you terminated.

SO Shawn Lowe is the main character in this book and he seems like a

This book I found to be a very interesting read. I love dystopian stories though, big fan.
There are some very believable concepts underlying this story. Too many people were living on the earth. They were warring with one another and there weren't enough resources to go around. If nothing had changed the human species would have gone extinct along with all of the species being killed off by man. All the signs were there. So, the creators of a new world order come up with what they felt was an e

I really enjoyed this newest release written by KM Breakey. Being the first in The Creator Class series, the author did a fantastic job creating his futuristic characters and storyline for this mature YA story. The idea of having such varying classes of people living in a world so different than our own made this story uniquely different from any other I’ve ever read. I found myself cheering Shawn Lowe on and hoping he would acclimate to the new Creator Class that he now had been selected to be ...more

K.M. Breakey hits one out of the park with this well-written futurist YA novel. It tells a heart-wrenching story of one young man’s discovery of the realities of life in the year 2084. The short chapters flew by, propelled by the gripping story and the author’s excellent ear for dialogue.

Society in this not-so-distant future is divided into two classes, the Creator Class and the People’s Class, and the world’s population has been culled from 16 billion down to one billion in a series of already

I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

When I first saw the cover, I was a little turned off. But don't judge a book by its cover right? To start off, I was super excited to read this because there's nothing I love more than the main character questioning the system haha! One of the good things about this book is that you connect with the characters, especially NaNa and Shawn. The relationship between them is absolutely beautiful!

Having said that, the storyline itself

First off, thank you K.M. Breakey for providing a copy of this book for a review.

At first, I wasn't quite sure about this book (but I've been extremely busy lately and haven't had time to just sit and read like I really prefer to so it may have thrown me off a bit having to set it down for a couple days here and there). I thought it picked up a lot more in the second half compared to the first half though.

I thought the idea of having the different classes was an interesting idea. I thought, at

This is the first time I have read a book by this author, and also in this genre.

Although at first I was unsure whether I would like this genre and the story was a bit slow for me to warm to, once I got going I did enjoy reading the book. It certainly gives you food for thought as regards our world and our future and I look forward to reading the next book in this saga to see how it all plays out (in this version anyway!!). I dont like reviews that are essentially spoilers, thus I end this revie

This is, by far, one of the most impressive stories I have read in YA (and seriously, that's a lot of books). Breakey doesn't mince words but nothing is left out - well, nothing he doesn't want you to be thinking about. The multiple character lines are strong alone but blend well together. In true great book fashion, it's a wonderful story that can be read deeper. I CANNOT wait for the second book - I finished this one and kept going back to see if more had magically appeared :)

Remarkably action-filled

It's a well written, action filled story that takes place in the future, where fate isn't what you think it is. I like entering the imagination of Breakey and where this may be written as a YA fantasy, this not-so-young reader enjoyed this book tremendously. Breakey has a way of bringing the future to the reader, all with its intrigue of the new world. A world where there are only two classes, one of privilege, and the other, not-so-much.

Creator Class was a unique, well-executed story. I loved Breakey's vision of Earth's future, as the world he created was eerily believable and easily imagined.

I'm not usually a huge fan of having a male for the main character (especially when he does not fall in love in the course of the story) but I liked Shawn a lot. He was different from his peers; not content to live a pre-determined life of school, marriage and career, but instead questioned why things were the way they were. He had a lot

This book was given to me for free in exchange for an honest review.

The book started well... Set in a future where world order has been achieved.
It gave enough information to help you see the world that had been created, but not enough so that you have all the answers straight away. It created intrigue from the off.

The characters were alright, they had enough to them for you to imagine them but I felt some of the reactions were a little... for less of a better word vague.

When I first started this book I had some troubke getting used to the writing style. The narration threw me off. Some points it seemed like the character was the narrator but the next sentence would sound as if a non exsistant narrator was telling the story. it took me longer to get through this than normal and I struggled to get through the beginning. once you understand the story it gets easier. I like the characters and will def read the next one. Overall I enjoyed this story.
