Mauricio is a slave. Like any man born on Ginecea, he is but a number to the pure breed women who rule over him with cruel hands. Imprisoned inside the Temple since birth, Mauricio has never been outside, never felt the warmth of the sun on his skin. He lives a life devoid of hopes and desires. Then one day, he hears Rosie sing. He risks everything for one look at her and his life is changed forever. An impossible friendship blossoms into affection deemed sinful and perverted in a society where the only rightful union is between women. Love is born where only hate has roots and leads Mauricio to uncover a truth that could destroy Ginecea.
The Priest is the first book in The Ginecean Chronicles.

I waited for it to get better. I wanted a happy ever after. Didn't happen. :-(

Wish ending was different but a fun read

The basic ideas and plot have good potential.  I would have liked more back-story about how this society ended up this way.  The distinction between the "pure-breeds" and the "fathered women" doesn't make much sense.
