  • Excellent Steamy Dystopian Romance

    Wow…this one had me on the edge of my seat and up into the wee hours of the morning. I could not put it down! At first I thought “Mad Max” and then I thought nope…seafaring raiders…and then… I just kept reading and reading. When I finished and thought about it this morning I thought of the first books I read by John Wyndham and realized I have enjoyed reading about a world destroyed and trying to recover since I read the Wyndham Omnibus years ago. This first book in a new series has everything I like to find in a novel and introduces potential main characters of future books in a way that I can makes me want to get my hands on them as soon as possible. The men of the Clan are HOT and the women they hang out with are, too. The main characters are strong individuals in their own right and their story intense and interesting. Tyr and Helena are quite a couple! Tyr is the war chief for his clan of raiders. He is alpha to the max and oh so hot. He captures Helena on one of the raids and takes her back home with him. She has a secret mission and he needs to know what it is. The whole clan is unapologetically hedonistic and the complete opposite of what Helena has grown up believing as a compliant on the mainland. This story is about trust, dispelling misconceptions, power – the abuse of it versus the wise use of it, family and oh so much more. I loved it! Thank you to NetGalley and Saint Martin’s Press for the copy of this excellent book to read and review.

  • Modern Day Vikings

    This book is not your typical romance novel. In fact there is a lot more narrative and thought process than dialogue. You may even want to put the book down after a few chapters but if you keep at it for a bit, it will take hold of you. 2/3 of the book takes its time establishing the characters and background story but once that's done the story takes off pretty fast and by the end you will want your own raider.

  • rather unique and not something I’ve read before

    I really enjoyed this story because it’s rather unique and not something I’ve read before. This one takes place in the future, where our world has been flooded and not much remains, including technology. Tyr is intrigued by Helena and takes her captive during one of their missions on the mainland settlement. He’s also suspicious because her actions towards him during the encounter make him think she has a hidden motive and was purposely looking to be abducted by his clan. Their chemistry is off the charts and so are the sex scenes in this book. (There are lots of scenes that are public and group sex within the clan.) Helena does have a secret…she’s been running for her life for 2 years and is determined to finish the mission started by her family. I liked both characters but I had a hard time getting into this one. I think it’s a combination of the author’s writing style and the fact that there is so much inner monologue…I found myself skimming at times. The story itself was great and while there is no actual cliffhanger, the author gives us enough to guess that it’s very likely that there will be a continuation to this story.

  • Great start to an erotic dystopian series!

    This story takes place in a post apocalyptic world, one in which people have been reduced to a medieval like existence (though still with some traces of modern technology such as highly prized electricity). Helena has the daunting task of generations before her, carrying a secret that could change the entire power structure of the world she lives in (both literally and figuratively). Chased by mercenaries, she thinks she's found a man who can help her in her quest. Tyr is a war chief, a Raider, a man used to taking what he wants, when he wants it. When Helena provokes him, taking her captive is the easy part. The hard part will be gaining her trust - and as the clock ticks, her betrayal could cost them all. I really enjoyed this story! The world building is excellent, reminiscent of old school historical romances with marauding clansmen. I appreciated the fact that it didn't have paranormal elements- no zombies present here. Tyr and Helena were both appealing characters to me, with Tyr as the classic alpha male and Helena as a driven woman, desperate to do whatever is necessary to save the people. The sex in this story is dirty, dirty,dirty! Fans of the Beyond series by Kit Rocha will find themselves in good company here, with voyeurism, exhibitionism, and menage scenes (though Tyr and Helena don't add any partners). While some of the consent is a bit dubious (I mean, you're a captive to a large, dangerous, incredibly sexy man - what are the odds you're going to refuse him?) the participants all seem quite willing. The story moves at a good pace, and though there is a happy ending for the couple in question, the overall story arc will continue into the next book in the series. Very enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to more in this erotic dystopian world.

  • Wow! Smoking hot!

    Wow, what a read! This was something completely else from what I usually read, and let me tell you I don't regret it one bit! The story is a mix of dystopia and freaking vikings, I kid you not. It's genious! Just for all the yummy men I'd buy this book. ;) I honestly don't know where to start. This story is so amazing but at the same time it can be quite disturbing, to some at least (me included). The world as we know it is gone. On one side you have viking alike men that live in a world where a hint of technology still survived the bed times. Men that follow no rules or laws but their own and men who know how to please women and women who definitely know (or learn) how to please men. On the other side you have a world, where most women are basically degraded to being nothing more than baby making objects. A world, where sex is not meant for pleasure, only for repruduction. But what they all have in common is a world with no government or human rights. Those with most power are the rulers (self announced kings) and law makers, all rulers of small teritories that always hunger for more. And you can guess what happened once those 'two worlds' crashed. You got it, an explosion that definitely changed both Tyr and Helena's lives. This book is filthy, filthy sexy!!! I don't remember ever reading a story like that. And I read a lot! There were scenes that I just had to take breaks from and completelly stop reading. Let me tell you, Helena may come from a world where sex is nothing but a chore but underneath all that, she's a heck of a vixen (that likes to watch - a lot)! Not that Tyr is any better. Boy, those two really know how to burn the pages, uff. ;) Of course their relationship starts with no relationship. No emotions. Just sex. But we all know how their story is supposed to end. Tyr is this big brute that starts to soften up with Helen and she is definitely someone who lets you know her opinion loud and clear. And that more often than not brings her into trouble. Only this time her trouble comes in a form of this sexy, broody and super protective piece of a man. They have some ups and downs but at the end of the day, nothing can stop them from being together. Not the new life style, mistrust, weak relatives or even demons from their pasts. And what doesn't decide to leave peacefully, well...let's just say that Tyr knows how to make it leave. All I can say is, this book is awesome! And you should go and buy it! ...Now! :D
