Publisher's Summary

Four hundred years in the future, men are few and women rule the world.

Except for the area formerly known as Canada and Alaska, which is inhabited by the Men of the Northlands, a group of strong men who refuse to be ruled by women.

Christina Sanders, an archeologist and professor in history, is fascinated with the past. As a modern woman of year 2437 she knows that women are better off without men, but longing for an adventure, she makes a spontaneous decision and volunteers for a job no one else wants. Now she's going to lead an archeological excavation in the Northlands, the most secluded place on earth where the mythical males live who are rumored to be as brutal and dangerous as the men Christina has read about in her history books.

What will happen when Christina crosses into the men's territory? Will they allow her to do her job, and is there any way they'll let her leave again - unharmed?

Contains mature themes.

Post apocalyptic romance

This story was an interesting take on a post apocalyptic romance, in that it takes place centuries after the battles occurred that ended mass civilizations. The “Motherlands” are ruled by women and men have become passive there, while women rule in a society that suppresses expressions of emotion. The heroine is an archeologist and lecturer at a university, but longs for adventure. She applies to be alllowed to go on an expedition to look for artifacts from pre-wars, but is turned down. But while waiting to see the government official about it, she overheard about a request for an archeologist that no one seems to want to undertake. Now, there are a group of men in what as formerly Alaska and Canada who refused to follow the post-war rule by women and they are the N-Men, or North Men. They’re kept isolated and a border wall is in place. They are the ones asking for help from an archeologist and the heroine volunteers to go. She’s always been fascinated by stories of the N Men. Little does she know, her life and way of thinking is about to change forever. The action and romance in the story moves along at a good pace, and there are a few hot sexy scenes. I really liked the hero, once the audiobook proceeded. Narration was excellent

Loved it!

Well written. Great narration. Relevant. Loved the characters and the story line. A refreshing change of pace. Intelligent, sexy and sweet. I've listened to hundreds of books (probably closer to a thousand) and this one ranks high. I don't write many reviews but I felt compelled to write this one. Definitely worth a credit! Looking forward to more from this author.

I loved this Book

Any additional comments?

I absolutely loved this book. Not only was the story well written but the narration was fantastic. There was romance, a plot, and character growth. I laughed several times throughout the book and had a hard time putting it down at others. I will always recommend this to anyone. It is a romance without the heavy smut. That does not mean it is a clean read, however.

I cannot express enough how much I loved this book!

Interesting and unique

I liked this a lot! I loved the men of the north. Don’t like the ideas of the future and know it could never happen - peace for 400 years? Yeah right! But I love the north and liked the romance. I really loved the male narrator. He is growly and deep and delicious. I liked the female voice too. I just wish instead of them reading full chapters, that the man narrated it all and the woman just speak actual female voices. Will listen to the next book for sure.

Well written

The world building was good, and the story flowed nicely and was paced well. However the authors concept of romance is pretty warped, she tried to develop 'traditionally' formulated feminin and masculine worlds, however really just depicted each gender as having some really bad, unhealthy habits (maybe that was the intent, but it is not that appealing for either side).
I also get really concerned by authors that have no sense of consent - if a person says no during sex, it is not romantic for the 'hero' to use coercion or some twisted logic that 'if a person is physically aroused', then their consent is no longer required, their arousal somehow magically overrides a verbal statement - this is not romance, this is sexual assault, no wonder so many girls get confused about what sexual abuse is and isn't.

laugh or cry

The story waa nice. I really liked how the author made fun of a gender neutral world. Most books set on the future are just a guess at what we will become but this seems like what we actually may be headed toward. Worth the read for sure.

The Northmen book 1

Overall premise was amazing,the idea of hundreds of years of change from men to women being in charge........though the triteness of overwhelming the story with not greatly thought out sex scenes and F words was irritating. I am no prude and use the word myself,however..... 6 or 7 in a row was just juvenile.Really wish the “story” would have been told in greater depth, that would be a REAL book!

PRETTY GOOD!

This Book 1 is pretty good; although it wasn't OMG crazy good. However, it's a great start to the series and I'm looking forward to continuing on.

After WW3, Canada and Alaska is now inhabited by the Men of the Northlands while the rest of the US is ruled by a council of women. The Women don’t indulge in eating animals, swearing, sex, porn, anger, etc. They are a socialist community while the North is still capitalistic and engage more primitive norms and believe women are less intelligent. Basically, the men think women are weak and the women think men are savage. Christina is an archaeologist and professor in history before she went on an archaeological excavation in the Northlands. Alexander was assigned to protect Christina. This is their love story.

Narrators were decent and did a fine job. Although, I don't think it hits a 5 star status. Nevertheless, it didn't take away from the listen.
