Goodreads Synopsis:

Alex and Leslie Twisden lead charmed lives-fabulous jobs, a luxurious town house on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a passionate marriage. What they don’t have is a child, and as they try one infertility treatment after the next, yearning turns into obsession. As a last-ditch attempt to make their dream of parenthood come true, Alex and Leslie travel deep into Slovenia, where they submit to a painful and terrifying procedure that finally gives them what they so fervently desire . . . but with awful consequences.

Ten years later, cosseted and adored but living in a house of secrets, the twins Adam and Alice find themselves locked into their rooms every night, with sounds coming from their parents’ bedroom getting progressively louder, more violent, and more disturbing.

Driven to a desperate search for answers, Adam and Alice set out on a quest to learn the true nature of the man and woman who raised them. Their discovery will upend everything they thought they knew about their parents and will reveal a threat so horrible that it must be escaped, at any cost.

My Thoughts:

Breed is a chilling and horrifying tale. It is terrifying and not like anything I have read before. Breed is definitely not for the faint of heart. 

Breed takes you on a disturbing tale of one couple`s journey to have children. They will do anything and I mean anything to have kids. After all hope has been lost, or so they think, they hear of a doctor who has a magical ability to get women pregnant. Even after all of western medicine has failed them, this doctor seems to know the secret.

What starts out as a miraculous miracle turns into something more deadly.

Breed is one of those stories that will give you nightmares. When you think you know the who what where when and why`s, Chase throw`s you for a loop. I was never expecting the book to end the way it did. 

I was so fascinated with this book. From page one you just have to keep reading. It is a thrill ride of a lifetime. It is dark and gritty and disturbing on so many levels.

Fans of the horror genre will really enjoy Breed.
