Cross Breeds

"Cross Breeds" - Cassandra Sinclair's book

Released on September 25, 2018

Summary: The Breeds are humans altered before conception with the DNA of the predators of the earth. But although they all carry the genetic material of beasts within them, Cassandra Sinclair stands apart. A unique mix of wolf, coyote and human, she is revered by many--but preyed upon by others. She is fiercely protected by her community...but no one manages to stop her when she slips away one day to offer her body in exchange for her sister's safety.
The man she succumbs to surprises her by unleashing her inner animal in ways she never dreamed possible--and provokes her deep, furious rage. To Cassie's shock, he is the mate she has long awaited. She may never be able to forgive his deception. Still, as dangerous enemies track her, and as the threat of all-out war between Breeds and the humans who despise them hovers in the air, they must join forces and hold fast to each other.
But the passionate union between them holds a potential that could change the world--and some will do anything to stop it...

The Story of the Breeds

They were created—not naturally evolved, but still of nature. They are the Breeds.

Genetically-made by crossing animal DNA with human DNA, the Breeds were a social and scientific experiment by groups of evil, greedy shadow corporations and government interests working together, groups like the infamous Genetics Council, Brandenmore Phamaceuticals, and Engalls Labs. Obsessed with creating the perfect, obedient, controllable soldiers and to finding the secret of extending human life and youthfulness through DNA sequencing, they genetically altered the eggs and sperm of human test subjects, mingling them with genetic material from the strongest and most cunning of beasts: lions, leopards, panthers, jaguars, tigers, cougars, wolves, coyotes, and even some avian species.

The Breeds were born from such madness.

Denied any form of freedom and even the right to individual personhood, these half-human, half-animal hybrids were locked in cages for years, denied privacy, experimented upon without anesthesia or care for their pain, starved, beaten, whipped, sleep-deprived, raped, intentionally impregnated, mentally tortured, and also forced to engage in those same brutal actions against fellow Breeds under duress. Often, they were murdered on the table or hunted to their deaths by groups who enslaved and murdered their kind for the sheer pleasure of it—groups like the Deadly Dozen (rich men who paid for Breed canned hunts), cruel Breed slave traders, and the Genetics Council's own trained assassin squads.

Tormented by their masters, raised to believe they were without souls and that God denied them as a result of their unnatural creation, the Breeds were less than slaves. They were fodder for science and amusement for evil.

And then they obtained their freedom, escaping the hidden labs that had held them as prisoners their entire lives...

This series chronicles their struggles to remain free and to protect that freedom at any cost, to be accepted by human law and society and not feared, to find their place in the natural order of this new, amazing world... and to find that although they were created, not born, they do indeed have hearts capable of great love.
