From USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Michelle Heard, writing as MA Heard, comes a new, full-length Dystopian Romance novel.


Over the past four decades, the dome over our Ecocity has protected us from the deviants living in the forbidden territory. Since the great war ended, our lives have consisted of virtue and order.


Once a year, seven people are sent out to the forbidden lands to see if there are any deviants worth saving. None have returned, only increasing people’s fear of what lies beyond the safe border of the dome.


When I’m chosen as a crusader, the world, as I know it, is ripped from under my feet. In the forbidden territory, I learn things I never dreamed existed – a world I’ve been totally oblivious to. I meet people who freely show emotion and affection. People who dare make their own choices.


It’s frightening and the opposite of everything I’ve ever known.


Suddenly, I have to fight for my life. I’m thrown into chaos where time is running out to become a skilled fighter who will be an asset for the coming war. But my mind’s bombarded with questions – who’s right and who’s wrong? Which side should I fight on?

I don’t belong in this world filled with cruelty and depravity.

Then there’s Chance, my reluctant trainer. The man is the definition of deadly and so attractive I struggle to think straight around him. I’m also pretty sure he would love nothing more than to snap my neck. Cruel, impatient, and harsh, he’s a brute who seems annoyed by my existence.


Honestly, I’m not sure I will survive living with the deviants, never mind fighting in a war. Unless I find my courage and learn to fight for myself, I fear this new world will crush me.


Author’s Note:

18+ ONLY.

This book contains mature language, graphic violence, and explicit content.






My ARC Review:

The conclusion to this Cruelest Oblivion duet, must be read in order – I enjoyed this, seeing the character growth of Jai, going to the main Ward and seeking out her mother who she hasn’t seen for years, the new characters Jai meets whilst there and who become part of her group.

Of course her relationship with Chance is never quite straight forward, they haven’t known each other that long and so things get misconstrued, people get hurt (or even worse), but Chance is there, trying his best to protect what’s his while Jai tries not to let jealousy take over!

Not sure I agreed with Jai chasing off on her own, even though it worked out as her raggedy mob of friends came after her and then they took on the Ecocity as a group! A bit brutal as they came up against the Insensates and Emissaries as they tried to free the populace from their rule.

I was not a fan of Jai’s mother, talk about cold and callous!

I also thought that this book was definitely on the shorter side, the two books could probably have been put together as one without it being that big, but otherwise I enjoyed this duet and the dystopian story line – looking forward to reading more from Michelle.
