USA Today bestselling author Megan Crane's smoldering new novel will leave readers ... obsessed.
Tyr, a powerful man in a destroyed world, needs only three things to survive: his weapons, basic resources and a rotation of women to serve his voracious sexual needs. But when a beautiful prisoner grabs his attention during a mission to restock his clan's supplies, Tyr's alpha instincts give way to something much darker--strong, unquenchable lust that cannot be ignored...or denied.
After two years on the run, Helena is snared by this dominant group of men who roam the land unchallenged. Strong to her core and with a mission of her own, Helena knows she doesn't have to be their captive for long. But despite all the terrible things she's heard about these brutal beasts, Helena is overcome by intense desire for the ruthless man who has taken her. As their scorching passion escalates, Helena will have to trust in Tyr in order to save both what's left of this desolate, torn-up world...and herself.

A dystopian story that's Brutal, Erotic and NO Zombies.......What a combination!
Okay, let me explain. I have read a couple of dystopian stories and both included zombies. I found them both enjoyable. This one is no exception, I LOVED both characters.
Tyr is definitely an alpha male War Chief and Helena is a Mainland Compliant that's anything but.
She is rebellious and determined, he is sexy and commanding. The two together burn up the pages. I think I have a new hot, sexy, dirty, viking-like love......Tyr
There is a kidnapping, a secret mission, and Kralijic, the hated enemy to both.
Good Stuff.....but it did drag a little and the repeat button was hit several times with the mentioning and explanation of the secret mission. We got already.
Because of Tyr's hotness and the fact he was matched with a compatible and not a whiny female partner, this book earned a solid four stars. A very nice change of pace for me.
