In a world where the incubation of men is banned, a brilliant, empathetic scientist rescues an illegal man from his sadistic owner, launching a power struggle between the status quo and the agents of change.
One hundred and fifty years after the incubation of men was banned, Eleanora Duncan stumbles on a shocking secret. A Colony of lower-caste women are incubating baby boys for sale. Owning a man is the ultimate secret status symbol for the rich and powerful but also against the law, a law the elites support for ordinary members of society while exempting themselves. The Colony now has fully grown men ready to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
When Eleanora discovers that a man she bonded with at the Colony is suffering abuse by her owner, she comes to his aid, and spirits him to a journalist friend’s mountain home several states away. Her intent is to expose the hypocrisy of the elites. When their plan backfires, her journalist friend is arrested, and she and the man are pursued by the Federal Police, igniting a power struggle that could bring down the government, and launch a civil war.
Will men once again be permitted to live openly with women, or will they be relegated to the near oblivion and slavery that awaits them in the shadows?

This was a unique concept for a sci-fi story. I was invested in what was happening and it did what the description promised. The characters and their world was interesting and it worked well. I enjoyed the way Randall Moore wrote this and look forward to reading more from him.
This is such a great read! it is a world run by women and like most influential people they want what others don’t have and in this world it’s men. When you make the rules son also think they can break them and then a world without men not only are your rights to give birth taken away but the ability to choose how you want to live your life is also taken in this book it is a great example of how well the population does without men. They still have infighting at the top level on down. The have political rivalries and when you’re the only man brought up to the surface and years there’s going to be a little cross dressing I loved Peter and love the story. I did like every important name being a females though that was such a boon to my spirit and I highly recommend this book it was such a good book and although it’s a concept that has been done before I have never read one so original and so absolutely interesting. This is a total five star read it is definitely one I will be reading again in the future. I’ve received this book from NetGalley and the publisher but I am leaving this review voluntarily please forgive any mistakes as I am blind and dictate my review.
I found this an interesting take on an alternative future where the world is only populated with Women. It is not that men do not exist it is that only high up and elite members of society have access to men. This is a dystopia book where things are not at all like what we know and one of the things which I found hard to get my head around was that you can have an abortion up until the child is 5 - wow this is hard to get round. I would recommend this to any lover of dystopian novels
