Bachelor Battles (Book 1) The Change
First Round Winner of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award
Everything Has Changed
Five hundred years into the post-apocalyptic future, almost every baby born is female. Males have been enslaved by the Network, and the only way to get a mate, to have a family, is to enter the Games and win.
The catch? It’s a live battle to the death where the competition is fierce and even the winners leave damaged.
Daniel is a 20-year-old bachelor with excellent home skills and no memory of his life before being sold to the government. Kind and unaggressive, he has been brainwashed to be the perfect, harmless mate who only hopes for a loving owner to take him out of his cell.
Torn apart when Daniel was sold, Candice is now ready to challenge the rulers who make them all live in torment. This fiery female will put everything on the line to rescue her childhood sweetheart. If she wins, it might cause a revolution that leads to a future where the tyrants no longer exist. If she loses, even her family will be removed.
“After the apocalypse, there were no jails, no police. We had to do something with the criminals. Letting those killers fight it out for our entertainment achieved two goals at once. The apocalypse was depressing. Fresh blood brightened our day.” –The Network Council, 93AW.
Centuries later, the simple battles have evolved into a dystopian nightmare where the contestants are all female and the prizes are enslaved males who have been programed to be perfect, submissive mates. Families are strongly encouraged to sell any sons to the Network in exchange for food and fame. Those who resist are labeled rebels and tracked down by bounty hunters with no mercy.
You are about to go on a dystopian quest where desperate, dangerous women rule the world, a revolution is brewing, and men are going extinct. In the Bachelor Battles, everything has changed…
