Book Review: Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon
Things about me:
1. I’m not a sci-fi fan
2. No thank you to stories about aliens
3. Not really into Paranormal romances
If you’d told me even a year ago that I would be head over heels for a horned, blue-skinned aline from an ice planet, I would have never believed it, Yet, here we are. With me writing a raving review for Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon as I’m almost finished with book three of the series.
Content warnings: I will say, this book starts off with young women being abducted from Earth. They go through hell, including r@pe. While I can understand how this raises the stakes for the characters, you can easily skip this part. Author, Ellie Mae MacGregor has a post that outlines content warnings for the series.
This book is suspenseful, sexy & the blue-horned alien, named Vektal, is like a cinnamon roll caveman that just wants to take care of Georgie. And Georgie is no joke either. She’s brave, tough & easy to root for.
I also love the differences between species, how they work through the language barrier & Vektal is just so dang sweet. And Georgie is tough as nails & so determined.
Thank you Berkley Romance for our gifted review copy.

Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon – Synopsis
Publication Date: November 30, 2021
Fall in love with the out-of-this-world romance between Georgie Carruthers, a human woman, and Vektal, an alien from another planet, in this expanded edition with bonus materials and an exclusive epilogue—in print only!
You’d think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you’d be wrong. Because now the aliens are having ship trouble, and they’ve left their cargo of human women—including me—on an ice planet.
We’re not equipped for life in this desolate winter wasteland. Since I’m the unofficial leader, I head out into the snow to look for help.
I find help all right. A big blue horned alien introduces himself in a rather . . . startling way. Vektal says that I’m his mate, his chosen female—and that the reason his chest is purring is because of my presence. He’ll help me and my people survive, but this poses a new problem.
If Vektal helps us survive, I’m not sure he’s going to want to let me go.
