The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌏🌍
Character development: ☺️😮😍😀
Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Kate – She was kidnapped by aliens and was stranded on the Ice Planet (Not Hoth). Kate is tall and nearly the size of a Sa’khui female. She has a lot of issues with her size, especially since most of the human women she is stranded with are tiny. It shouldn’t matter since the Sa’khui men are 7 feet tall, but it still bothers her and she feels that it will be hard to find a man that will be attracted to her because of her size.
The Hero: Harrec – He is the comedian of the tribe. He loves to fool around and be silly. He is also a bit obtuse when it comes to the things he says to Kate about her size, he thinks he is complimenting her and doesn’t see how he is hurting her feelings because of her issues with her size. When he first sees Kate he said, “My eyes…Look at this mountain of a human.” Though he fell for Kate when he first saw her.
The Story: Kate was attracted to Harrec when she first saw him, but that disturbed her when he made that comment about her size. He hangs around her a lot but she thinks he just does it to make jokes at her expense. Harrec is actually a really nice guy and has a great disposition, and he flirts with Kate quite a bit, but she thinks he does it only because others are around. It takes Kate quite a while to see that he is actually serious about wanting her.
I love these books and I always end up liking the stories as they progress. However, there seems to be a lot of them where the women have issues which make them seem to witchy or whiny through much of the books. I love it when the female has a sunny attitude from the beginning or at least is determined to make the best of their situation. I wish more of the books were like that.
This book is told in dual points of view via dual narration, like all the other IPB books, it was narrated by Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd who I am used to with these books. I like their styles and voices. They do a great job, as usual. This book was a bit shorter than some, the audiobook ran about 6 hours. This story, like a lot of the others has the two main characters going out alone on a journey and that is one thing I like about these books.
