Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

Alex and Leslie Twisden had it all except a child. They had tried everything they could think of except adoption. Leslie had had enough and so she wanted to stop trying. She wanted to adopt a child but Alex would not hear of it. When Alex heard of a technique that worked for an acquaintance he was determined they would have one last try. They traveled a great distance to Slovenia and paid a great deal of money to Dr. Kis. His treatment was unconventional but had a proven success rate. The doctor neglected to tell the couple there were side effects to the treatment. The treatment was successful in that it produced children. The ten year old twins, Alice and Adam, were frightened of the increasingly loud violent noises they heard at night and could not understand why they were locked in their room each night. The children managed to escape and set out on a journey that would bring them disturbing answers to their questions.

“Breed” is the prefect name for this horror story by Chase Novak. Readers beware, this tale is not for the faint of heart. The blood details are both violent and graphic. There were times when I had to turn off my audio book and picked it up a while later. I had chills as I read the details of what happened to the victims. In all honesty I would call everyone in this tale a victim. This book is shocking, riveting, nonstop action and downright bloody. Novak is a superior writer. He has more talent in his little finger than most writers have in their whole body. He made me feel as if I was part of the story. I was fearful for the children, animals and the general public. I was fearful for me. I kept checking behind me to make sure there wasn’t a hungry hairy person creeping up on me. Fans of horror, don’t miss this one. The format of my book was audio and was read by Peter Ganim. His voice was prefect for the narrative. He drew me in and did not let me go. The sound quality was superior. I highly recommend “Breed.” I recently read that Chase Novak is working on a sequel to “Breed.” I eagerly await the release of “Brood.”
