Publisher's Summary

No one ever comes back for me.

I've always been on my own, and why should it be any different on an ice planet? So when I'm kidnapped by a feral outcast, I suspect I'd better learn to love raw fish and rough living.

Then...U'dron comes to my rescue.

He's always understood me more than anyone else. He's been my friend and my confidante. We've made music together. And now that he's my hero? The crush I've had on him is turning into something more, something deeper. He won't want me when he hears my terrible secrets, though.

But it turns out that U'dron has a secret of his own....

Contains mature themes.

I LOVED this book!

While I tend to love everything Ruby Dixon writes I did find this book particularly good! Glad to be hearing more about Shadowcat Clan, and was also thrilled to learn of the Outcast Clan. Raven’s character is among my favorites too, right up there with Liz! You will not regret spending a credit on this book, I promise!!!

Blue is awesome

I have loved every single book from ruby Dixon and this book is as wonderful as the others. The sex scenes are steamy and amazing, the narrator is sexy, and the story line is sweet and heartwarming. I can’t wait for the next audiobook already.

A Homeworld with Depth

This is the first book by Ms. Dixon that I have listened to, that actually has serious depth to it. Both the lead characters struggle with being less than reputable people in their native societies and for the first portion of the book, they are purposely hiding these low statuses from one another. A few chapters in, they encounter actual outcasts, individuals shunned from all societies on the planet because of ‘birth defects.’ This meeting gives both characters a lot to consider in their own lives in this new world, 'Ice Home' and to grapple with the question of whether or not their lives have really changed by their new circumstances or will they forever have to be lowly members of society because of the hand fate has dealt them? Unfortunately, the book couldn't fully explore the seriousness of these situations, which were very interesting and moving, asking the question if you were to be thrown into a completely new context, would you still be the stripper? the convict? the non-hunter? Or could you reinvent yourself by lying and would that be satisfying? Or tell others around you it is a new world so a new rule? And it's such a pity because Raven was such a complex and intriguing character in so many ways, especially when she demonstrated her dancing skills. Pure brilliance, I mean, of course, this is Raven's logic and it just shows how she had justified her stripping to herself throughout her life and proud of it even though she knows many find it morally objectionable (Raven’s whole character is hot and cold, smart and stupid, needy and strong, generous and defensive, etc.). But none of this character development ever gets any further because the book then turns and it’s a flurry of well-wishers to meet the HEA. I hope that Ms. Dixon starts a series where she gives herself space to flex her emotional and social IQ that may not always be in a formulaic HEA book but explore soft science fiction which can also have intimate scenes, which is one of Ms. Dixon’s superpowers. Overall, the book’s story is 4 stars because I felt like the book was going one way and then I was disappointed that from Chapter 24 the story took a U-turn to reach HEA. The narration was good.

Raven and U’dron.

Love this series, I love how all the girls are different in their personalities and in their lives before they were kidnapped. Only one thing that I didn’t like was Raven’s dream, I wasn’t a fan of that. I love the outcast and look forward to their book. I recommend listening in order, starting with the Ice Planet Barbarian series. Got the series with my Kindle Unlimited and was able to purchase this for the Whispersync price. Narrators are great, I do tend to use speed 1.25x, just because I have so many books to read and it doesn’t ruin the narration.

If ScifiRom is your shtick....

The Ruby Dixon series of life on an ice planet with blue barbarians may seem bizarre...well, okay, I admit, it’s rather bizarre...it has totally captured the imagination of many readers and one I can fully recommend, even urge you to immerse yourself in fully.
Raven’s Return is the particular story of Raven, pseudo hippie and sexy dancer who is saved by U’dron when she’s kidnapped by a feral outcast. It’s a somewhat perilous existence for them all, of avoiding being eaten by strange creatures, on the other hand, actually eating strange creatures themselves to survive.
Although it’s all alien, everything that makes it fun are those things with which we are familiar; laughter, and tears, good times and bad but mostly love. Love is paramount. Always.
Narrators Sean Crisden and Felicity Munroe really add to the enjoyment with their top notch acting.
Raven’s Return is one of my favorites.

Okay Raven . . . or Louise!

So finally one of ShadowCat resonates. It took long enough. I liked this. The fact that they both had a shameful secret (shameful in their eyes) made them seem more real. And I loved that aspect.

Raven's return

I enjoyed this story about a woman who feels that she has to hide who she really is so that others in the tribe will like her. I enjoyed the narrators and found myself eager to keep listening for long stretches of time during my day. l look forward to listening to more stories from this author and these narrators.

another chapter

still a good story but not my favourite so far. feel like author is starting to get cruder and weirder with the bedroom stuff because she is worried about boring the readers but it just makes the romance/story less believable. but I still love the books
