Warrior is book 3 in the Breeder series and was another great story. I loved Anika, she was definitely a warrior. I loved how she was determined to live the life she wanted and not the one that was forced upon her. As I've said in my reviews of the two prior books this planet they live on woman are treated as low as cattle. They are used strictly for breeding and as vessels for sexual release and its always against their will. Urazi was amazing too. Although his relationship was differe

I am always enthralled by the Sci-fi stories that Ms. Cara Bristol spins. She has a knack for describing the planets, the inhabitants, animals, customs, and mannerisms that allow the reader to envision it all. The inhabitants of Parseon are larger than Terra and have divided the area into five main government areas, each with a High Commander. Within the various commanders, the adage about keeping your friends close and your enemies closer are prevalent.

I had really enjoyed the other books in the "Breeder" series, and I'm happy that "Warrior" turned out to be just as good as the first two.

We met both Anika and Urazi in "Terran." Anika's brother Marlix has promised her to another Alpha as a breeder, but Anika wants no part of that life, so she runs away -- determined to make her own way in a very hostile Parseon world. Urazi, Marlix's beta, fears for her life, so he pursues her, even though he knows that as a beta, he has no claim on her. He soo

This is my least favourite of the series. Its not as romantic as the others. Its more about Anika proving she is a competent woman. I did really enjoy that aspect of it as well. Omra and Tara were more of push overs than Anika. I liked that Anika was the first to question a man's right to punish a woman. I am pretty sure that Dak and Malik still spank their women. I doubt Anika will let Urazi do that anymore. It would have been a nice step for someone to have said that Anika was an Alpha or some ...more

Wow! I am still thinking about this book. I was on the edge of my seat for most of this ride. I worried for Anika. I worried for Urazi. I worried for Parseon!

There were so many delicious VILLAINS in this last of the Breeder series that I worried for EVERYONE. Alpha Commander Qalin was absolutely the worst…in the best kind of way.

I loved getting to meet more of the aliens and delve even deeper into the alien culture and fauna of Parseon.

The third and final story was one that piqued my curiosity since both hero and heroine were known to me in the earlier books. Plus, the civil war on Parseon between ideologies definitely has my vested interest. It was a great showdown in more ways than one.

Yes, as I noted, earlier, Warrior is the third book in the exciting and passionate domestic discipline sci-fi Breeder series. It relies on the reader's knowledge of the Breeder universe not to mention it is the culmination of what the earlier

Cara Bristol’s Warrior, the third book in her Breeder series, was an action-packed science fiction romance novel that kept me on the edge of my seat. I was drawn in immediately by Anika’s plight when she learns she’s to become Commander Illian’s breeder. Though she’s a female and has no rights under Parseon law, she wants the freedom to carve her own path in life, and her feelings for her Alpha’s beta, Urazi, only complicate her situation. I really admired Anika’s determination and strength thro ...more

I absolutely loved this book so much! It was a fantastic way to end a series.

The whole series was awesome, but this last book was by far, my favorite. It was packed with great action, scary scenes and evil beings, science fiction, wonderful romance, and a fantastic plot filled with great, engaging characters.

Anika was my favorite! As a female of Parseon, to have her "feminist'y" views showcased through her adventures, made for an even better story!

The conclusion to this fabulous series is so completely satisfying. I’ve been waiting for this one, needing to know how Anika and Urazi deal with Qalin and Ilian and everything else that’s going on in this interesting world, but I was nervous too.

Their world is in the middle of a war that can change everything. The realities of that can be devastating. There’s a lot at stake and Warrior delivers it all in a thrilling ride.

This book brought the story of Parseon to a satisfying conclusion (although I personally would love to read a book about Perce!) which I did enjoy. Unfortunately, this particular couple did not have the heat/chemistry that the other two books in the series did. To me it was the least erotic, and I'm not really certain why - it just didn't work as well for me.

Despite that, I liked Anika and Urazi as characters. I enjoyed the way Anika discovered the difference between perception and reality and t

This was a nice conclusion to this series. It's a bit rough for the females and lesser males in this world but I was still entertained by the whole dynamic. This book was different than the previous books being it involved a beta and an Alpha's sister. They're both natives so it's interesting to watch how they shuck their societies standards for their feelings for each other. This one was more adventurous than just a romance. It was a nice change of pace.

Great conclusion to this series! I'm sad to see it go! Anika and Urazi went through some crazy things! Although she didn't think things over very well, I admire Anika's strength and determination. She is the perfect person to get the women to adapt through the new protocol. I loved Urazi and didn't like him thinking less of himself! Maybe Bristol can write another a few years down the road with new protocol and the offspring of the charaters all grown up.

In comparision with the two previous books, this one was bad. I was bored out of my mind and the female MC was annoying.

Ok, I have to say this turned out to be my favorite of the three.

*spoilers if you haven't read book 1 or 2.
So the planet is at war over a protocol change. It's a hierarchy system where a woman is ranked below animals. They are used as breeders for the alphas and the backhole as release for the betas, they are not educated and are treated very poorly. (that is an understatement) Until things change and Alpha falls in love with his breeder (book 1) finding a problem with Protocol and starts the ch

This is the third book in the Breeder series by Ms. Bristol. I always loved Anika but this book just made me fall in love with her more. It was so amazing to be able to follow her story through the other two books and then to finally end with her own love story.

Anika is an amazing character and such a strong woman. While Anika is Parseon by birth she has adopted many of the new and radical ideals that were brought over with the Terrans. I was just so impressed with Ms. Bristol’s ability to show

I really hope that Bristol goes ahead and write the spinoff she mentioned in the back of the book! The world is so rich and has so much more potential there could be times more books!

This was my first Cara Bristol Breeders series book. I only found out at the end that there were others before this one, which speaks clearly of this being a stand alone novel. It is a scifi novel, with new worlds and new languages to learn, one of my favorite pastimes! It is also a romance novel, with heartaches, misunderstandings and miscommunications between the two lovers. Combining two of my favorites extremely well has made me a Cara Bristol fan for certain!

This was such an awesome book that I'm sad that it's the last of the Breeder Series. It can be read as a stand alone but I would recommend that the first and second be read first. There are so many characters in the story that it would be redundant to mention them all, however they all play important roles from Nasty evil bad guys to wonderful strong people. This had everything a good book has, adventure, danger, violence, suspense, romance, spanking and much more. Come join Anika and her friend ...more
Alien female, male dominant alien. The world has been turned upside down by human ideas about the role of women, which conflict with the alien world where women are used only for breeding, and the idea of female sexual pleasure is unheard of. Sort of.

Start with book one: Breeder although Warrior may be read independently. Some DD, some hot erotic scenes.

Best thing about the book is the heroine's repeated refusal to accept that society (aka men) make 100% of the decisions that matter.

This was the best ending for a series, I would love to read on more about Parseon more characters from that world. Perce would be great to hear more about or the children from the original characters.

World building in this series is vast and I wish there were more books from this series to devour lol. I was and am still so deeply invested in the characters and their lives.

I didn't mind at all that the romance took a backseat for once in favor of a deep and engaging story. More like the breeder

Very satisfying book.
I never expected Anika to be such a great Alpha herself and of course a warrioress.
Loved Dak.
Loved the fist-fight between Marlix and Urazi.
And I definitely loved Marlix. He was such a naughty boy in the end.
The book and the series all together had the happy ending, they should have had.

Warrior is book 3 in the Breeder series. This book would be best read in order, I don't think it would read well as a standalone, there is a lot of stuff that happens in the first two books that are pertinent to this book.

What happens when you get a taste of freedom only to have it rips from you?

You run.

But when your world is in the middle of a war, you will quickly find out just how strong you are.

And if you're lucky to survive all the trials and tribulations, you find the happiness you longed for.

Anika never expected to be thrust into another household but that's exactly what she's just learned. That isn't what she wants, so she takes off without a plan.

The third and final book in the Breeder Series. Warrior is my favourite,because Anika fought to prove that just because she is a woman does not mean she is weak or stupid or unable.

This is a book that can be read as a standalone, but you would better enjoy the nuances of this society by having read the previous books and also give an insight into what happened to Anika previously.

This is the third book in the Breeder series. I would not consider this book to be a standalone and for you to read the first two, “Breeder” and “Terran” in order, this will help you understand the male-dominating world author Cara Bristol has created. I have really enjoyed reading this series; the heroine again is strong, smart, and stubborn. Anika was introduced to us in the first book; she is the sister to Alpha Commander Marlix. She was determined to choose her life and not let her brother m ...more

Breeder is a well-written story.

Having said that, I have mixed feelings about this novel. It's not wholly the fact that this male-driven society devalues females to point of being breeders and domestic slaves. Don't get me wrong, that's upsetting. I am female after all. And honestly, that's been the true course of history off and on for millennia. Men are physically superior. If they choose to use that strength to subdue they will. If they choose to use that strength to protect they will.

I was given an ARC for a honest review. This is the final book in the "Breeder" series. The story is about Anika, sister to Marlix(2nd book) and Urazi, Marlix's beta. Theirs is a forbidden romance because Anika as a female and must become a breeder to an Alpha. Urazi was severely wounded in the 2nd book and during his recuperation time, he and Anika developed a romance of sorts. This book is a bit different than the other books, in that it's really a story about Anika and her struggle against Pr ...more

Anika and Urazi have been featured in the first two book in the series. Now they have their stories. Anika is a very strong female character and that is what gets her into trouble. Urazi is very conflicted about how he feel about this female. The story line has been developing in the first two books and comes to a believable ending with Warrior. This is a planet that needs to change and Anika and Urazi become part of that change. The world building, back story and character development are all v ...more
