Publisher's Summary

Resonance. It's a given on the ice planet, forced upon you by the parasitic symbiont called the "khui". With resonance, a guy and a girl are paired up because they'll make great babies. It's a survival mechanism necessary for this sparsely populated world we're stranded on...and romantic, in a weird, alien way.

Everyone expects resonance to happen when 20 newcomers are dropped onto the frosty world. I doubt anyone expects the gorgeous golden god named Ashtar to resonate to someone like me, though. He's fierce. Flirty. Powerful. Disgustingly handsome. I'm...not any of those things. I'm bland. Boring. Clumsy.

But resonance seems to think we'd be great together. And Ashtar does, too....

Contains mature themes.

Where’s that campy alien romance magic?

Offshoot Icehome series is a paler series than it’s parent Series: Ice Planet Barbarians. This is Veronica and Ashtar’s story. I’m not sure if it’s the different narrators or the writing, but I have found both books 1 & 2 to be slower and duller.

When you’re talking about alien human romance novels, you’re not looking for Great Expectations. One of the things I loved about the IPB series was the lively speed at which chemistry exploded and nooky happened. Here, the nooky takes forever to get going. What a let down for a book 2 promising a gold, god of an alpha male gladiator dragon. (I see there is a whole other series based on these dragon aliens, but based on this book, I’m going to have to pass on that series).

Ashtar is arrogant and supposedly a lifelong gladiator slave whose never really associated with females, but his character seemed awfully compassionate and solicitous... but that is the author’s trademark male character. Veronica has no self confidence and her constant inner monologue about how plain and ordinary she is gets tiresome. The female narrator’s nasal females and raspy males turned me off. As much as I like dual narration, I think I’d prefer just the male narrator ( even though his version of Sakui voices is painfully measured and tone less) ... or bring back the male/female narrator from the original series.

The rest of this new series can’t be borrowed in the Audible Escapes package. If they are offered at the occasional 50% sale, I may get them. Otherwise, I’ll spend my credit on meatier, 20+ hour books.

Veronica & Ashtar.

I have read most the books from this series and I think this one might be my favorite of them all. Ashtar is too funny, I loved how he was strutting around like a peacock and showing off for Veronica and embarrassing her the first night. I love the fact that the males think the woman will just fall on them and accidently have sex with them. Narrators are good, different from the original series, but I still like them.

I enjoyed the book

I enjoyed the book. It was truly funny at parts. I wouldn't say that it was very sexy but it did have me blushing. I don't regret listening. its a good way to pass a car ride to and from work.

I love this series!

loved the story, just wish leading lady didn't sound like a valley girl. This is my only issue with this book. Once I got past the girl's voice it was great!

Meh-It’s Ok

This is the 4th book in the series I read-I actually read the third book before this one “Willa’s Beast” (and found the story with Willa and Grin much more lovable and believable). Honestly if you like this series it is a good few hours. Veronica has a lovely character arc of growing to love herself! Ash is...more fun in the other books from the outside looking in. Even Grin-the beast who wanted to kill everyone-wasn’t as rude and anti-social as Ash. Of course Ash gets better by the end of the novel through the lovely power of character development.

In short-like this series? Give this book a shot!
Going in blind? Read Willa’s Beast first.
That way you can at least be intrigued by the parallel scenes the characters share in both books when you finally read this one ;)

Loved it!

Very sweet and romantic story. Truly satisfying and entertaining, never a boring moment. I only wish the story would continue on. I enjoyed the connection between the two it seemed honest and real. I think I will even listen to it a second time because it's such a feel good kind of book that leaves you smiling.

***Veronica's Dragon***

It was amazing reading this book but listening to it brings it up to a totally different level. I still giggles/snorts specially when they call Bridget Brisheet lol and I do hope Gren and Willa are next. The narrator's are amazing Sean Crisden has a very sexy voice and Felicity Munroe is perfect as Willa and not a bad male voice either, thanks guys.
