Book Review: The Believers by Katie French

The Believers (Breeders #2) by Katie French
Genre: Young Adult (Dystopian)
Date Published: November 23, 2013
Publisher: Katie French Books

They’ve escaped the Breeders, yet their journey has just begun.

Riley and Clay are once again on the run from the Breeders. The group may have escaped the deranged experiments at the hospital, but as one of the world's last free women, Riley can never be safe. On the road back home, Riley and her crew are captured by a band of savage men. Their destination: the Citadel, run by a bizarre religious prophet named the Messiah. Somehow he knows their secrets. He wants them to join his group of Believers, but only if they’ll drink the baptismal water and swear allegiance.

The problem is there’s something wrong with the water. Something wrong with the people. And there’s human moaning coming from the bottom of a dark crevasse that no one wants to talk about. If they can’t figure out what’s going on, Riley and everyone she loves could become a Believer forever.

The Believers is the second book in The Breeders series by Katie French. Riley, Clay, and the crew are free from the Breeders facility, but they are still in danger. This new place governed by the "Messiah" doesn't seem much better. It's like a cult, and everyone seems to be getting sucked into it. Even Riley can see the appeal in some ways. This book ran a little slow for me. The pacing of book one was much better. Clay made me soooo mad too! And, as a result, I got mad at Riley for never telling him how he really behaved. He needed to know! But, I digress... The Believers had the creepy, cult feel throughout the book, but it just wasn't enough to keep my attention like the first book. There wasn't a cliffhanger, but this ending lets you know there is definitely more to come.

Check out my review of the first book in this series!

I am an English teacher and former High School Counselor. I've been writing since second grade and penned my first attempt at a novel at the age of thirteen. Besides writing and my job, my family comes first. I like dark chocolate, foot rubs, and rescue pets. I'm a sucker for thrillers and raunchy comedy shows.

My series, a Young Adult dystopian adventure titled The Breeders, is available on Amazon.
