Ice Planet Barbarians (Ice Planet Barbarians #1) by Ruby Dixon #mf #review


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…

OK, OK – before you get all judge-y here, let me say that this is nothing like those crazy T-Rex romances and Snowman fantasy short stories Crystal has forced me to read before. First of all, I read this book by choice. Second of all, this book has an actual plot that doesn’t involve an ice dong – thankfully. I stumbled upon this series in another author’s Facebook group and I have to say, it’s the best thing that happened to my free time reading in a very long time. Seriously.

You probably know by now that I’m not a huge fan of Sci-Fi romance. I’ve had a hard time in the past getting into the alien stuff, but I guess I just hadn’t had the right introduction because these books are phenomenal.

Let’s start with the plot, shall we? Georgie is abducted by aliens – your classic “little green men.” She and the other women abducted crash land on an ice planet. Georgie is sent out to explore the ice planet and try to find food and whatever else she can, but what she finds instead is Vektal. Vektal is seven feet tall, blue, has horns, and wants to get his freak on with Georgie. But he’s not just some blue horn dog; he’s experiencing something for her that his people call “resonance.” It mates him and Georgie together and also makes them incredibly horny for each other. Like – really horny. I don’t want to tell you any more of the plot here, but just know there absolutely is one, and it’s quite the adventure.

The best thing about this book is the way it is written. I have quickly devoured most of this series (yes, there are many, many more Ice Planet men that need mates) because I just love Ruby’s writing. It’s funny and engaging. The lady is talented – and I think that’s highlighted by her choice of genre. I mean, any old person can attempt to write a romance with a billionaire and quirky girl who likes to bite her lip a lot, but writing a good sci-fi romance takes talent – especially to do it so well that you snag the attention of people who don’t normally like this kind of stuff. *raises hand*

The characters are great too. Georgie felt like a girl I could know. And the interactions of the people and aliens on the ice planet are funny and sexy. Who doesn’t want to read about a group of guys who apparently want nothing more than to go down on their ladies 24/7? I want an ice planet of my very own.

It goes without saying that I highly recommend this book and series. They’re just good. I’m now a devoted fan, and Ruby is definitely up there with some of my most favorite authors ever. So, take my advice and go out and get this book. Just do it on a day when you don’t have other plans. 5 stars.
