They believed Daeios would be a safe haven.
They were wrong.
Fleeing apocalyptic weather, a young survivalist woman and her family seek safety deep underground. But a new danger awaits them.
When the leaders of the shelter announce their plans to repopulate the earth using all fertile females, Shea knows she will be forced to become a breeder. Horrified at her impending fate, Shea must make the gut-wrenching decision whether to breed with an elderly, sadistic man and bear his child, or to fight the breeding, knowing that defiance will endanger her life and that of those she loves most.
A dystopian thriller with overtones of The Handmaid's Tale, Shea's chilling story will appeal to readers with an interest in family and survival.
Contains mature situations and languiage.

I received a complimentary copy of Daeios: 140 Feet Down from the author, and am leaving an honest review. A first-class debut novel. Well crafted. Gritty and at times hard-hitting. Believable. Periodically interspersed with sudden surprises, twists and turns that maintained a suitable pace throughout! As an editor and proofreader, I was automatically tuned to detect any errors but found none in the 300+ pages of Colleen Eccles Penor's book. This comes as no surprise when one reads that the author ensured her manuscript was read by both alpha, beta and critique partner readers and that she commissioned (or was gladly offered) comments, advice and practical support from many other people to ensure the final product was "top-shelf." I commend the author on what was a most entertaining dystopian journey! Fiction is never far from a living, breathing reality, as you will discover by reading this book. Certainly worth reading multiple times.
