Publisher's Summary

A promise is a promise, but this promise is one I should have never made.   

Mila, a sweet pacifist born in the Motherlands, has avoided conflicts all her life. Now, living in the Northlands with the ruling family who adopted her, she's under pressure to follow the traditions of the North and let fierce warriors fight for her hand in marriage.   

But how can she marry if it means giving up on her friendship with Jonah, the first male councilman in the Motherlands and her closest friend? Every night they talk, laugh, and share their darkest secrets.   

Will Mila find a voice strong enough to say no, and is she willing to jeopardize her family's political power for Jonah, who most likely wants nothing but a platonic friendship with her? Or does he?   

Contains mature themes.

I loved this series. it was fun watching the group grow and evolve. it also makes you think about if this happened now, would we live the same way or something like this. I would listen to it again.

The BEST book in the BEST series!

The Men of the North books are written by a therapist who really understands people and their motivations. Every one of them is a treasure, especially ‘The Pacifist’. It wraps everything up in a completely satisfying way. Not only does Elin Peer know what makes men and women tick, she also has a magic ‘way with words’, each one a jewel on a string, together creating unforgettable stories and very real characters. You should start with the first one, ‘The Protector’, about Christina and Boulder. You’ll really be rooting for them! And the first three books are free for Audible Escape members. The last book is considered a pre-quel because it takes place before any of the other books, ‘Forbidden Letters’. It’s exciting! I’m almost finished with it. I intend to go back and read them all again, straight through. Of course you should read them all, starting with Book 1, Christina and Boulder. They’re fun!

I'm sad that this is the last book

But it was a beautiful ending to the series and seeing everyone grow and finally reach some balance. Loved Jonah. And I was beyond glad to see a happy ending for Magni. This series was unique and entertaining. Elin Peer is a favorite of mine.
