yearning for freedom.A male armed

they alone are all that stand between the people of Parseon and the end of the
My Thoughts On Warrior:
Warrior is book three in the Breeder Series but works well
as a stand-alone.This is a planet
that does not treat their women as equals and gives them very few rights.That is changing and Anika and her
story are part of the change.She
will not accept a future she has no part in planning and that sets her on a
journey of discovery.Along on the
journey is Urazi, who must also break out of the role he has been placed
in.Together they find they are
more powerful than anyone expected.It turns out there are more warriors than anyone knew.Warrior is a well-written story with a
great plot and well-developed characters.
She stared at the bloodied body.
“Is Grogan dead?”
Urazi knelt and checked for a pulse
against the alpha’s neck. “Yes.” He peered up at her. “Who is he to you? Has he
“Monto, no!” she gasped, not
considering the alpha’s intentions pertinent.
“Grogan is the leader of the
Guerilla Resistance against Qalin and Artom, which I have joined,” she
explained. Urazi’s eyes narrowed, and she added, “Grogan was training me and
other breeders to fight.” Breeders could approach a sentry without arousing his
suspicion then immobilize him, allowing male guerillas to storm the post and
secure it. She thrust back her shoulders with defiant pride. She, a female, was capable of supporting the
war effort in a productive way.
Urazi rose to his feet to examine
the paper target. “You are an excellent sharpshooter, but winning a battle
requires more than skill with a crossbow. You would not fare well in
Anika shrugged. “If I have a
crossbow, I will not need to engage in hand-to-hand combat.”
“Did it help you today?” Urazi
strode to Grogan’s body, and yanked up his bloodied uniform shirt. Attached to
the alpha’s nipple was an insignia ring. Urazi unclipped it and carried it over
Anika stared. A single star.
Province one. Qalin.
“You have joined with the enemy to
strike against your own people? You would betray your Alpha? Your sibling?”
Qalin’s insignia lay in Urazi’s
palm, damning, but untrue. So untrue. “No! How could you say that? The
Resistance plans to strike against Qalin. Against Artom.”
Urazi tucked the star into his
“But maybe Grogan is an infiltrator
acting alone,” she argued, fighting against the insidious memories; the ease
with which she’d been accepted into the camp when her comrades learned of her
familiarity with both Marlix’s and Dak’s provinces; Grogan’s constant but
subtle questions about locations. He’d asked if she’d ever encountered Marlix
himself. At the time, she’d feigned ignorance of the latter, fearing they would
send her back to him.
Anika clutched her throat. What if
Urazi’s accusation was correct?
“If he were an ordinary alpha or
beta, I might concede it possible. But he is—by your account—the leader. I do
not believe in coincidence. I have been observing the camp. Neither Marlix nor
Dak would have sent females into combat.
“The Resistance you are so proud to be a part of is using you as
expendable cannon fodder.”
