You’d think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you’d be wrong. Because now, the aliens are having ship trouble, and they’ve left their cargo of human women – including me – on an ice planet.

And the only native inhabitant I’ve met? He’s big, horned, blue, and really, really has a thing for me…

 

Well that was an interesting read. As if getting abducted by brutal aliens isn’t enough, Georgie and the group of human females are abandoned on a random planet. A planet that is covered in snow, monsters that come out of a sci-fi novel, and a deadly atmosphere that causes anyone who inhabitants it to merge with a native parasite to stay alive. Add onto that the fact that some random alien finds Georgie and decides she’s his mate, and you have one very strange romance.

Now one thing that I do want to say is that there is rape in this story. It’s a brief scene at the beginning when the original alien ship abducts the females. However, it was a very uncomfortable scene to read and I really wish it was not included in the story. I would have much preferred if the aliens form of punishment was beating rather than a rape. So, if that is a trigger for anyone, you might want to steer clear.

Other than that, I did find that Vektal’s character was super sweet. He’s this huge alien chieftain, and yet he’s so gentle with Georgie. Even when he can’t understand her, he doesn’t get frustrated and does what he wants, he listens to her body language and is able to read between the lines. It was also nice to have sections of the story be in Vektal’s point of view. It gives the reader a better understanding of not only who he is, but of his species as well.

This story is on the short side. So don’t expect any crazy details or world building. The author is pretty short when it comes to world/character development. She just dives right into the meat of the story. Which, I did not mind. Maybe we get more information about the alien species with each book? I’ll probably pick up the next book just to see if we get more world/character development.

One Thought on “Review: Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon

  1. I read an alien story kinda like this one not too long ago. I tend to like alien stories but any brutal scenes are not to my liking for the most part even though I can understand them being in a book like this.
