Character development: 😌😎🙃😮
The heroine: Stacy – she was in a crash landing on the ice planet three years ago and immediately resonated with her mate Pashov. They now have a two year old when there is a cave in and her mate hurt and was in a coma.
The Hero(es): Pashov – he wakes up and doesn’t remember the last years. He doesn’t remember the alien ship crashing, resonating to a human female or his son. He thinks Stacy looks funny, since she doesn’t have a tail and isn’t blue like the Sa’Qhui.
The Story: Stacy can’t even be near Pashov because it hurts too much. She was blissfully happy with him and it kills her that he can’t remember her or their son. She ignores him at the fires while he feels guilty for not remembering and for hurting her.
The clan doesn’t know what to do since the cave-in since the brutal season is coming up and they have to find a place to live. They want to stay together through the brutal season so they search out a new place.
The story was good, Stacy was a bit sad at the beginning because she wanted Pashov to remember her and was mourning the years of memories between them that were lost to Pashov. Though when she realized that she was hurting both of them by continuing to think that way instead of just getting to know him again, she was much better.
The book was told in dual points of view with dual narration and narrated by Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd. Both narrators do a fine job and I enjoyed listening to this one. I liked the fact that they moved to a new village in this book, which they named ‘Croatoan’. The name fits since the village was abandoned when they found it.
