Audiobook Review: Raven’s Return (Icehome, #12). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Raven’s Return by Ruby Dixon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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…

The heroine: Raven – since being kidnapped from Earth and stranded on the Ice Planet, Raven has been hiding her true self. She things the others will not like or accept the real her, so she don’s a hippy dippy personality where she acts like a bit of an airhead who loves everyone and everything. In truth, she was a stripper who has spent time in prison.

The Hero: U’dron – he is of the Shadow Cat clan and he knows from the start that Raven is going to be his at some point. When all the men build huts for their mates and to get mates, U’dron built one for Raven. He feels they are kindred spirits.

The Story: One day as Raven is walking on the beach she sees some footprints of a child going towards one of the caves. She follows the footsteps to make sure one of the children has not gotten lost. She ends up being kidnapped by a man she finds with the child, they are not from the tribes she was with but is from somewhere else. When she tries to leave, they drug her and take her.

U’dron is determined to find Raven even after all the others give up, thinking she must have left to be alone. He doesn’t think she left willingly so he keeps searching for her. When he finds her, there are issues to be resolved. Both are hiding secrets and have feelings of inadequacy. The thing I didn’t like about this one was how stupid both of their secrets were.

This book was told in dual points of view and via dual narration where the female narrator does all of the chapters in the Raven’s point of view and the male narrator did all the chapters in U’dron’s point of view. The narration was done by Sean Crisden and Felicity Munroe. They do a good job and are pleasant to listen to.
