Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Sam – She lived in fear of her psycho stalker ex-boyfriend and had nobody to help her. The cops were no use and she knew it was only a matter of time before he killed her. When all of the sudden she is kidnapped by aliens and wakes up on an ice planet. After waking up and finding out that she is on an alien planet and her ex is still back on Earth, she is happy and finally able to breathe for the first time in a long while.
The Hero: Sessah – He first met Sam when she arrived at the Icehome beach. He was a gangly teenage alien and he eventually returned to the Croatoan village with his people. Four years later, he is now a huge muscular beast of a man and his brother, who has a ‘knowing’ sense, tells him that he will soon resonate with someone at Icehome.
The Story: Sam was initially so happy after arriving on the ice planet. However, it wasn’t long before she began suffering from PTSD and having nightmares about her ex-boyfriend Brad somehow arriving and terrorizing her again. She spends all her time making weapons and finding ways to hide many of them on her body, clothes and boots. She just wants to be left alone and has learned how to hunt and use all of her weapons.
When Sessah returns to Icehome, Sam immediately resonates to him and is afraid. Though Sessah had always been a friend to her, she had never wanted to resonate with any man. She wanted to live her own life and had thought of leaving the camp to live on her own. So she runs away to the fruit caves as soon as she realizes she is resonating. Of course, Sessah follows her.
This book is told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Sean Crisden and Felicity Munroe. I like these two, Felicity has a very nice feminine voice which is very pleasant and Sean is great at alien romance narration. I like the accent he uses and his tempo of speech. The story on this one is definitely not original but I guess I really just love this world so much I don’t care.
