Publisher's Summary

Marlene's not like the other humans.

They weep while she smiles. They look at us with fear, while she entices me with a come-hither look.

I...have no idea why such a bold female resonated to a male like me. I am the most reticent of all the sa-khui tribe, a hunter that never expected to have a family of my own. But resonance chooses, and it has chosen her for me. And Marlene is quite determined to seduce me...and who can say no to such a woman?

Contains mature themes.

Arts and recaps makes story boring

Author seems to be running out of ideas. The story is the shortest yet, and spends the first hour of this 4.5 hr book recapping and reminiscing about how human gals ended up on an ice planet with sexy blue aliens
Marlene is French, and her narration is done with an annoyingly strong French accent. She’s superstitious, to the point of being completely calm at waking to find she was abducted by aliens and now is being rescued by huge blue suede devils... all because she sees “arts” (what she calls hearts) on floors and ceilings (a sign her mother is looking out for her) Really?! Also, she leers at Zenec from the moment they meet, which left me feeling more icky than entertained.
While not horrible, there was nothing much to love. I kept thinking of Marlene as Pepe Le Pieu, aggressively pursuing a frazzled and unsure Zenec. It balances out for the second half, but nothing new compared to the dozen plus books before it.

Accent was so hard to understand

Great book. Loved it. But the French accent was so heavy I could barely understand it. Disappointed in the narration.

Had Trouble Understanding Narration

The story was great like all of the Ice Planet Barbarians books and spin-off series. The ending is especially sweet.

Hollie Jackson is an incredible narrator, this time she maybe did too good of a job though. The character she portrayed was French and the French accent sounded very authentic, at least to me and I found it hard to understand what she was saying. I usually really appreciate how the narrators are basically actors that bring the story to life with the different voices they do. But this time I would have preferred a less convincing accent so I could understand more of the story.

Don’t listen to the audiobook. Just read this one.

The thick fake French accent is soooo difficult to understand. I’m an hour in, and have probably listened to 3 hours worth at this point because I have to rewind almost every paragraph multiple times. Infuriating. Hollie Jackson is great on the other books, just not this one.

Sweet sexy story of Marlene and Zenneck

This starts in present day on NotHoth and then continues with a flashback to when the first group landed on the planet. We finally get Marlene’s story and see how she resonates to shy, quiet Zenneck. I love this whole book. Marlene leapt right into resonance which was refreshing but seeing the family with their daughter present day was great too.

Marlene is calm when she wakes up on a new planet because she sees hearts which are a sign from her mother showing her everything will be okay.
When her mate and daughter do not return during a bad snow storm, she looks and looks for a sign from her mother but doesn’t see one.

Short and sexy!

I like how Marlene always see signs of her mother in the shape of hearts. This is a good place to end the series and continue on with Icehome series. Accent makes it a bit harder to understand, but narration is excellent as usual.

Delightful flash back

It’s fun learning how the other ladies meet with their mates. This store is a bit difficult to listen to as the MC French accent is very thick. It’s also heavy in sexy times and confessions of the heart. a warm fuzzy ending.

Hearts for the Narrators

I have listened to almost all the these books in the series, I love the narrators, although in this book they do a French accent for the female character, which was hard to understand Most of the time. Also, the plot was weak almost nonexistent. It almost seemed like the author had forgotten about this particular character while writing the series, the character was mentioned briefly in the other books but never a supporting character, or even an interesting one. By the end where she “rescues” her mate, it was pretty anti-climactic, and how many times do you have explain why she was looking for hearts? The most seen shape in nature, not hard to find at all, in my opinion. The main male character was supposed to be so shy that he couldn’t even talk to her let alone carry her off the moment they resonated, all in all, it just felt lazily slapped together. The Narrators were really the only good thing I can say about it, as always they are my favorite narrators for audiobooks.
