I was given an ARC for a honest review. This is the final book in the "Breeder" series. The story is about Anika, sister to Marlix(2nd book) and Urazi, Marlix's beta. Theirs is a forbidden romance because Anika as a female and must become a breeder to an Alpha. Urazi was severely wounded in the 2nd book and during his recuperation time, he and Anika developed a romance of sorts. This book is a bit different than the other books, in that it's really a story about Anika and her struggle against Protocol, where women are seen as nonentities. There is also quite a bit of action and suspense. I enjoyed it immmensly and loved that we got to revisit with the other 2 couples! My only complaint is that I wish there were ore scenes w Anika and Urazi. And I wished Urazi was a bit more "alpha"......but in the end he does redeem himself! I wish there were more stories from this "Parseon world". My favorite book of the series is Tara and Marlix's story because of the humor between these two.

**Received ARC for a fair and honest review** Warrior is book 3 in the Breeder series. This book would be best read in order, I don't think it would read well as a standalone, there is a lot of stuff that happens in the first two books that are pertinent to this book. I'd rate this book at 4 stars. Anika is the breeder of a beta, which her brother Alpha Marlix is none too happy with. When he is killed, Anika is mourning, but also helping to care for her brothers Beta, Urazi who was injured at the same time as her Beta was killed. While she helps tend him, she begins to care for him, but when her brother decides she's to marry another, she sneaks out and leaves her brothers dwelling. Urazi can't fathom the thought of Anika being out there by herself with everything going on and he goes after her. Hopefully he can get to her in time before anything bad happens to her. I've enjoyed this series, but this is my least favorite book in the series. I did enjoy it just not as much as the first two books. I mostly enjoyed the characters, the chemistry, but Anika's personality rubbed me the wrong way. This book is also a lot more intense than the first two books and the author really did a great job with this story and series. This series is completely different than anything I've read previously which I really enjoyed, and this story was no different. I hope that there will be more books in this series, I would like to see Alpha Ilian get his own book. This book is a definite rollercoaster. Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!!

I absolutely loved this book so much! It was a fantastic way to end a series. The whole series was awesome, but this last book was by far, my favorite. It was packed with great action, scary scenes and evil beings, science fiction, wonderful romance, and a fantastic plot filled with great, engaging characters. Anika was my favorite! As a female of Parseon, to have her "feminist'y" views showcased through her adventures, made for an even better story! I adored her for her bravery and loved her for her kind heart. Urazi was wonderful as a courageous alpha, who fought for his woman and his country, even though his status was that of beta. But what made me truly fall in love with him, was his decision to not kill, frivolously. I guess that made a big deal to me. Qalin was the perfect bad guy - I hated everything about him. There was no confusing subplot to make me try to rethink my dislike for the bad guy. He was evil through and through. I loved the secondary characters also, and liked revisiting some of the main characters from the previous books. The book was very well done, and so thoroughly entertaining. I loved it, and am sad to see the series end. That's the same way I felt about Harry Potter. ;)

Cara Bristol’s Warrior, the third book in her Breeder series, was an action-packed science fiction romance novel that kept me on the edge of my seat. I was drawn in immediately by Anika’s plight when she learns she’s to become Commander Illian’s breeder. Though she’s a female and has no rights under Parseon law, she wants the freedom to carve her own path in life, and her feelings for her Alpha’s beta, Urazi, only complicate her situation. I really admired Anika’s determination and strength throughout the book, and how her feelings for Urazi evolve as they fight side by side. Urazi knows what he wants—Anika—but he cannot violate Protocol or disobey his Alpha, so he initially accepts Anika’s fate as Commander Illian’s breeder. However when Anika flees Marlix’s abode and her life is in peril, Urazi runs after her, the consequences be damned. He gradually starts treating Anika as more his equal, and though he does try to bend her to his will and spanks her for disobedience, he’s never cruel to her and he shows her affection during their weeks together in the middle of war-torn Parseon. Through circumstances and his own questioning of Protocol, he transforms from beta to alpha, and these changes aren’t lost on Anika. The odds seemed to be stacked not only against Anika and Urazi’s future together, but also the future of Parseon because of the ruthless Commander Qalin’s determination to rule over all five provinces of the planet. The last few chapters of this book are especially tense and I couldn’t put the book down! It was also a nice treat to find out what Omra and Dak (from Breeder) and Tara and Marlix (from Terran) were up to, especially at the end of the novel. Warrior was a highly enjoyable, thrilling sci fi romance that was a great conclusion to the Breeder series.

I absolutely adore this book! I'm actually torn whether I liked this one or book 2 better. Of course I loved all three to tell you the truth! I really hope that Bristol goes ahead and write the spinoff she mentioned in the back of the book! The world is so rich and has so much more potential there could be times more books! I love this book so much! Of course in the last book we met the hero, and in Book one we me heroine and I honestly loved them both. In the previous books. This one surprised me in a lot of ways but it was pleasant surprises and the plot went in places that were not predictable. Which I always love a good read. For sale is a fantastic writer that has created a rich world with just about everything that is awesome! I can't wait to see more from her, whether it is a series or not!

Cara Bristol has done it again. Warrior is the third book in the Breeder series that has a little bit of everything. There’s action, adventure, romance, hot lovin’, and even a little discipline all put together to make for a FANTABULOUS read.I enjoyed how Cara brought the characters from “Breeder” and “Terran” together in this book as well. This is the story of Urazi and Anika. Urazi is Anika’s brothers Beta who wants Anika but knows he can’t have her. Anika is the sister of an Alpha who has been promised to another Alpha. Anika runs off to choose and have the freedom she wants. Urazi goes after her with the intent to bring her back to her brother and the Alpha she has been promised to. In the process, together, they fight to survive and save their people. Urazi does everything in his power to keep him and Anika safe. He’s not sure if he will be able to give Anika over to her brother when they get back to safety.This book can be read as a stand alone. However, I think there is a lot of information in the first two books that if you don’t read them all, in order, you will be missing some information that might help you understand Warrior better. Therefore I strongly recommend that you read the first two books in this series before you start Warrior. Thank you Cara for delivering another well written Sci-Fi book to your readers.

The conclusion to this fabulous series is so completely satisfying. I’ve been waiting for this one, needing to know how Anika and Urazi deal with Qalin and Ilian and everything else that’s going on in this interesting world, but I was nervous too. Their world is in the middle of a war that can change everything. The realities of that can be devastating. There’s a lot at stake and Warrior delivers it all in a thrilling ride. Like the others in this series, my highlighting tool got its workout. There’s some fabulous intriguing banter between Anika and Urazi. There’s burning passion too and that ending, loved it! I simply couldn’t read fast enough. I’m definitely rooting for the spin-off series. I’d love to get to know the kids of these characters. Until then, this whole series is a must read.

Wow! I am still thinking about this book. I was on the edge of my seat for most of this ride. I worried for Anika. I worried for Urazi. I worried for Parseon!  There were so many delicious VILLAINS in this last of the Breeder series that I worried for EVERYONE.  Alpha Commander Qalin was absolutely the worst…in the best kind of way. I loved getting to meet more of the aliens and delve even deeper into the alien culture and fauna of Parseon.  Still happy to be a Terran, but Anika, Omra and Tara can visit anytime.
