Publisher's Summary

As an a'ani warrior, my life matters little. Cloned from the same matter as thousands of others, I am but one of many. Here on the ice planet, though, I can start over. I can become my own person, have my own needs, my own wants. 

I know what I want. I have known since the moment I arrived. 

Her name is Angie. She is human, with sad, lonely eyes, and a very pregnant belly. To her, I am not just another clone. I am Vordis, the one who laughs at her jokes, tends to her needs, and makes her smile. I will do anything to make her mine. 

But my brother and fellow clone Thrand thinks the same way, and he's just as determined to win her. Will I have to destroy my bond with my brother to win my female? Or will he cause a rift between us that's impossible to mend? 

Contains mature themes.

Yes!!! 👏👏👏

This book was fun and hilarious. Would be great as an tv series on Showtime or HBO or cinemax maybe cause of the adult theme but for female audience 😉. It kept my interest the whole way through and was totally worth the credit. If u dont have a credit to spare then totally worth the money 💰👌

Great Story, Great Narration

I’m a big Ruby Dixon fan, so I won’t expound on her incredible storytelling abilities. (She’s incredible.) I enjoyed this audiobook version mainly because these narrators are new to me and they seemed to match the characters so well. While I love listening to previous narrators (Loyd and Jackson), these two were great for a change up.

very enjoyable

I really enjoyed this book. It was very nice and I liked the story line. The sex was very light which is a change. I liked the voices of the people. All in all it was a good buy well worth the credit spent.

Fun and sexy

Ruby Dixon gives the heat and the humor along with the HEA
It's getting to that point that is enjoyable. if I can listen to a narrator and not has to change the speed or anything that's a 5 star
Thanks for the new series and the humorous and heated resonance pairings.

By far my favorite narrator combo

Love love love Ruby’s books I’ve. been reading her books since the first Barbarian came out and was instantly hooked, and the books just keep getting better! I love how swoon worthy Vordis is and how the two narrators give life to the characters, makes it a great listen for my commute, I could listen to them individually or together all day! I vote they keep getting paired for her books they killed it!

The clone wars!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Narration: 🎙🎙🎙🎙
Romance: 💙💚🖤❤️💜
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 📕📗📘📙📔
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍
Character development: 😚😌😉🥹😘

The heroine: Angie - she woke up from a cryopod on an ice planet after being abducted by aliens. She is distressed to find out that she is pregnant and has no clue how she got that way or what kind of alien impregnated her.

The Hero: Vordis - he is one of a thousand clones, created to fight in the gladiator rings. He and his clone brother Thrand were on their way to new owners when the ship crashed on the ice planet. They think it is their job to watch over and protect Angie, though Vordis wants her for himself.

The Story: When Angie finally talks to Vordis and tells him she would like a pickle and he goes off to get her one, he thinks she is messing with him, and becomes remote again. She is lonely and just wants a friend. Though she is attracted to Vordis, she thinks it isn’t right in her condition. She feels apart from the other women since they rarely talk to her about anything other than how she is feeling or how the baby is doing.

Vordis doesn’t think he is worthy of Angie since he is a’ani, a clone created to be a slave. Angie doesn’t think Vordis wouldn’t be attracted to her because she is pregnant with another’s baby. However, both of them yearn for each other. I liked this romance and they had a ton of chemistry between them and I love how dedicated Vordis is to Angie and how protective he is. I also enjoyed the way Vordis and Thrand were always competing with each other.

The book is told in dual points of vie in dual narration where the male narrator does the chapters in Vordis’s point of view and the female narrator does the narration on the chapters in Angie’s point of view. The narration was done by Sean Crisden and Felicity Munroe who did a great job and are very pleasant to listen to.

Poor Vordis

It's hard to break out of the hive mentality to be an individual with your own wants and desires. But when you do . . . It was funny seeing Vordis experience all these things and emotions he never thought he would or never thought was possible to experience. And thank gawd he did. Angie absolutely needed him.

The Alien Perspective on Dating

I love the whole series! Fantastic world building that describes how stranded modern women integrate into a tribal culture of tall, hot, and build, matter of fact aliens - all wrapped up with a steamy sexy sweet romance. The characters are all unique throughout the whole series. Some books have more action then others, which focus more on tribal life and personal struggles. I can't even pick one book as my favourite - I'm afraid you'll have to read them all including the original series 'Ice Planet Barbarians'. Fantastic male/ female narrators for the audiobook version too.
