Our Review

‘The moment I saw her, I knew. A feeling, a draw, the smallest spark of kindling. I want her. Oh my God. I want her.’

It’s been a while since we’ve read a Dystopian romance, and Folsom, the first book in the End of Men series, was one we were eager to explore. Not only for the concept, but for the writing duo of Tarryn Fisher and Willow Aster. Separately these authors are impressive storytellers, as a collaboration, their voices delivered seamless heady storytelling, providing us with an exhilarating, interesting, passionate, thought provoking start to this series!

“For the truth to make a difference, it needs to be said by one person at a time, until there’s a noise loud enough to make a difference.”

It’s evident that Folsom draws some of its inspiration from The Handmaid’s Tale, however these two authors have taken that concept and turned it on its head, delivering a story that felt fresh and unique, giving us much pause for thought.

“I’d been living without feeling anything and now I feel everything. Even If nothing externally changes in my life, the way you make me feel…I’m changed….”

In a world dominated by women, only, only twelve men, known as the End Men exist. These twelve are the only virile men left in the world, and as such, it is their job to impregnate women, to repopulate, and hopefully provide these women with the much prized male child in a world where women rule and the future of human kind is in danger of dying out. The future race lies in the hands of these twelve men, led by Folsom Donahue, who, at 34 is the oldest of the twelve and the most revered.

Having impregnated hundreds of women over sixteen years, five of those sons, Folsom attracts rock god status. All twelve men are valued as gods, on the surface, their life seem like the things dreams are made of. They’re offered luxury whilst most struggle, they have sex on tap, however, that is anything but the truth as these men are essentially sex slaves. Folsom, accepts his life, but he’s never bonded with a women on an intellectual or emotional level, and it’s something he never realised he missed until he meets Gwen. Folsom is devoid of emotional feelings until Gwen awakens them.

‘I’ve been living without feeling anything and now I feel everything.’

For as long as she can remember, 25 year old Gwen Allison, has wanted a child. Now, thanks to her mother’s relationship with Governor Petite, the head of the Red Region of the Society of Regrowth, she has been offered that chance with Folsom Donahue. Gwen is in awe of this man, crushing on him since she was a young girl and is quite overwhelmed to meet him, but surprised to  discover the human side to Folsom. She sees the man beneath, she sees his sadness and his hopelessness and for tenacious, defiant Gwen, she can’t sit back and watch these men become slaves to the Society, never knowing the children they father. Being inside Folsom’s head was heartbreaking.

“The life I live is lonely. I have no home, I have no family and I have no ties to any one place. What they make us do takes our souls; it turns us into machines that function without love. Every human needs love……”

Gwen has heard stories of the past, of couples who met and experienced romance and love, and she wants to feel that, instead of living in a world where sex has become contrived, and women only desperate to conceive. Gwen’s idealism sees beyond the constraints of the society, and in speaking out against the injustice, Gwen becomes a talisman for the revolution against The Society, and as such places herself and Folsom in danger.

‘I pretend we’re two normal people falling in love and starting our lives together, rather than two splintered people saying goodbye.’

And that’s about all we’re going to tell you because you need to experience the story these authors have beautifully crafted. Your hearts will be racing as the Gwen and Folsom’s story gallops towards its suspense filled ending! Talk about having your heart in your mouth!

We’re excited for more of this series; of having our our many questions answered, and hope the next book includes more world building and fleshes out the characters a little more. Folsom especially is a character we need to know more about. A fascinating start to a series we feel is going to be quite addictive!

“I can’t say the things I want to,” I tell her softly. “If I say them they mean more. And nothing can mean anything. Not in my life.”


Contemporary Romance with a side of Dystopian

The nation as we know it is a thing of the past.

With the male species on the verge of extinction, a society called the End Men is formed to save the world. Folsom Donahue is one of twelve men whose sole purpose is to repopulate the Regions. The endless days spent having sex with strangers leaves Folsom with an emptiness no amount of women, money, or status can fill.

Until Gwen.

Gwen has wanted a child for as long as she can remember, but when she finally gets a chance to have her own, she uncovers a long hidden truth. The injustice she sees moves her to help save the men whom no one else believes need saving.

A forbidden love, grown in a time of despair, ignites a revolution.

Folsom and Gwen, torn between their love for each other and their sense of duty, must make a choice. But some will stop at nothing to destroy them.

Folsom is book one of the End of Men series.
