Twelve humans are left stranded on a wintry alien planet. I’m one of them. Yay, me.
In order to survive, we have to take on a symbiont that wants to rewire our bodies to live in this brutal place. I like to call it a cootie. And my cootie’s a jerk, because it also thinks I’m the mate to the biggest, surliest alien of the group.
Barbarian Alien is book 2 in the Ice Planet Barbarians series and I forgot how unique and funny not-Hoth and the sa-kui could be! Raahosh is a lonely hunter and virgin who is terrified his mate will hate him forever. Because, lets be honest, she is a raging bitch. Liz is so hateful! I get it-you were kidnapped by aliens, stranded on a strange planet, and you have had shit all for luck, but man she is a terror! She says so many mean, hateful things. You can hate your circumstances without putting others down. It really took me a while to warm up to her (and even then, it was lukewarm).
These two have a rough road to mated bliss. Raahosh is adorable and trying to navigate understanding Liz’s constant chatter makes for some great laughs! They are destined to be mated, even though Liz is fighting it, so there are lots of sexy times even before there is actual sex. I liked that their story was different from Georgie and Vektal’s. Liz and Raahosh are both different from the rest of their kind so it seems fitting that they end up together.
If you are looking for hot alien sexy times, funny misunderstandings of the English language, and strong independent women, check out Barbarian Alien.
The audiobook is narrated by Mason Lloyd and Hollie Jackson. I have heard Mason Lloyd numerous times and enjoyed his voice. He totally outdoes himself in this book!!! He created an accent for these aliens and it was brilliant! Its unique and smooth. I worried it would detract from the story, but its perfect! It actually made me feel like I was listening to an alien! Hollie Jackson did a wonderful job with Liz as well, but Mason Lloyd really stole the show here.
