Four hundred years in the future, women control the world but Khan Aurelius, ruler of the last free men, is determined to take back the power that has been denied men for centuries.Outnumbered by far, he knows that women need to give up their power willingly and with one of their councilwomen as a hostage, he’s certain he can influence her with his superior male intellect. She is just a soft woman, after all.
Councilwoman Pearl has sacrificed herself to save an innocent priestess. Trapped in the Northlands, her soft voice and sugar-coated view of the world doesn’t impress Khan, who constantly challenges her by playing his mind games to corrupt her and see things his way. It’s a battle of words and wills when the two intelligent rulers clash. Will Pearl succeed in bringing enlightenment and democracy to the primitive Nmen or will Khan corrupt her with his charm first?
The Ruler is the second installment in Elin Peer’s Men of the North series that offers, drama, humor, and romance in a fabulous blend that will have you longing for more.

Alright… you got me.
I was slightly skeptical going into this one because I was not a fan of Khan’s character in The Protector. But that man weaseled his way into my fangirli-ness faster than Khal Drogo.
I didn’t think that shit was ever going to happen again. But here we are. Khan was just so unbelievably sweet at some points. It was completely swoon-worthy.
I loved Khan, I loved Pearl. I loved their flirty conversations and their relationship forming. I loved their arguments and Pearl giving him crap for being a jerk. It was great.
The politics in this novel was just as interesting as the first and you got to see more about the weird dystopian world that the author created. I really enjoyed diving back into it.
Props to Elin for the amount of characters she’s able to bring to life in her books. I tried to write a short-story fanfic once and there was 4 people in the scene. I think I lost 3 of them about 1000 words in. So..
I really can’t wait to read Archer and Kya’s story. Aaaand I just realized that it’s not out yet and won’t be out for another month or so.
I will be waiting impatiently to return to this imaginative world.
