I stumbled upon the Ice Planet Barbarians series through another blogger. They had reviewed the eighth book in the series and that review peaked my interest, so I went out and bought book one Ice Planet Barbarians.
I wasn’t sure what to expect. I have trouble finding Sci-Fi Romance with substance. Ms. Dixon delivered substance and more. I was captured from the first page. Georgie and many other human women are abducted from Earth. The aliens that took them treat them like cattle and their fate, well it doesn’t sound like it will be good, but along the way the ship crashes and they must survive on a frozen planet and come into contact with the natives, blue 7ft tall, horned aliens
I very much enjoyed the dual-POV’s. We get Gerogie and Vektal’s perspectives. It made it interesting to learn about both, the world, and what it’s like to be different and alone. I liked the language barrier, it made things difficult, but they worked through it until it got sorted out. This book was sweet, funny and sexy. Although the experience the heroine has gone through is pretty traumatic, this book was still light and fun to read
I loved the references or comparisons to Star Wars. The frozen plant they were on reminded me of Riddick, that ice plant he got stuck on & the ladies call it Not-Hoth from Star Wars. The other thing I got reminded of was Stargate and these symbionts aka cooties, they have to take to help them survive on the planet or they die.
The secondary; well all the characters we meet are interesting and unique in their own way. I had a few laughs at some of the things one of the girls said to help lighten the mood in a bad situation. I can’t wait for each human women to have their own story.
One thing I got frustrated with was that Gerogie let a stranger, Vektal, lick her right of the bat. Also she didn’t tell him their where more women than the five; before they went back to rescue them with the other blue alien men. These issues didn’t deter me in the least, just two things that got me, but soon moved past.
I loved Ice Planet Barbarians and couldn’t put the book down once I picked it up. Once I finished I went out and bought the next book in the series. It was that good and hooked me. I would recommend to anyone who likes a Sci-Fi Romance and who likes something a little different to give Ice Planet Barbarians series a try. The aliens are blue, have horns, glowing eyes and some interesting equipment down south.
Rated: 4.5 Stars
