The second novel in the Ice Planet Barbarians series, the international publishing phenomenon-now in a special print edition with bonus materials and an exclusive epilogue! Liz Cramer swears she'll find a way off of this alien planet she's stuck on-then she meets Raahosh, the surliest and stubbornest alien, who won't leave her alone, and she just might be okay with that... 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, grumpiest alien of the bunch. Raahosh believes the cootie's right, so he steals me away from the group, determined to make me fall for him-or else. He has no idea who he's up against. And if I didn't want his insufferable self so much (thanks, cootie), I'd let him know exactly what I'm thinking. As it is, I'm doing my best to fight this instant attraction. Just because the symbiont thinks we're supposed to be together doesn't mean I have to go along with it. And if we fool around a little, it's merely biology. It doesn't mean I'm in love-or that I'm destined to be his.… (més)

Oh Liz. What can I say about Liz? She’s really annoying at the start. But she eventually grows on you. But it was the exile at the end that annoyed me the most. I felt so much for them and my heart was broken almost as much as theirs was. And I was ready to fight when they tried to hook her up with widowers from the tribe. No! Just let my babies be together!

Liked, but felt it was not as good as the first book. Mainly because I didn't care for Liz. She was a little too bitchy for my tastes. Not as much drama in this book. However, there were a few things that happened to move the story along. Lastly, I felt this one could have used a little more character development. ( )

This starts near the end of the first book and features a different couple, Liz and Raahosh. Raahosh knows immediately that Liz is his mate but does his best to hide the way his khui (a worm-like alien symbiont) responds to her. When it comes time for the humans to either accept a khui of their own or die from the planet's effect on them, Raahosh takes the opportunity to both ensure that Liz accepts a khui and to kidnap her, taking her to a cave only he knows about so that he has a better chance of convincing her to accept him as his mate without others' interference.

Liz is understandably angry about this at first, especially as her new khui makes it impossible for her not to lust after Raahosh. Granted, she'd been somewhat interested in him all along, but he was also surly and she would've appreciated the chance to choose who she had sex with. Eventually, though, she begins to thaw towards Raahosh. However, what sort of future will they be able to have now that he's broken one of his people's laws and endangered a precious female?

I knew going in that I'd have issues with this book - the first book laid out the whole bones of Liz and Raahosh's relationship, plus their basic personalities. I knew Liz would be the kind of character who'd talk tough all the time, I knew that her and Raahosh's relationship would somehow blossom out of him literally kidnapping her, and I knew Raahosh was going to be annoyingly possessive. But this series seemed like the sort that should be read in order, so I figured I'd just have to deal with it in order to get to the books with couples that actually appealed to me.

While I somehow can't say I hated this book, I definitely disliked it. I hated the setup, from Raahosh's kidnapping of Liz to the way Liz did a total 180 in her attitude towards the kidnapping when Raahosh's people found them again. I was actually fine with Liz herself up until she was back with the main group and deliberately became an abrasive jerk in her efforts to be with Raahosh. And Raahosh's possessiveness was annoying.

The author tried to stir up reader sympathy for Raahosh by making him one of those damaged guys with a tragic past who just wants to be loved. He cared deeply for Liz and would die to protect her! And I...didn't care. Because I couldn't forget or forgive all the ways he took away Liz's choices and set things up so he'd get what he wanted, even if Liz's khui had to force the issue. Liz was going to end up lusting after Raahosh no matter what, due to the effects of the khui (which she might have refused if Raahosh had given her a choice - yes, she'd have died, but it would have been her decision). What Raahosh wanted to avoid was any possibility that Liz might be able to choose to live apart from him - an option she would have had if he hadn't kidnapped her.

I'd have preferred it if Raahosh had had to figure out how to win Liz over in a situation where she'd had other options. He'd have instantly been more appealing, and I wouldn't have nearly gotten mental whiplash from watching Liz suddenly be all "actually, the kidnapping was justified and poor Raahosh was just doing what he felt was necessary" after chapters and chapters of stubborn refusal to fall in line with Raahosh's plans.

As in the first book, the sex was more important than the sci-fi aspects, so I only got tidbits of new information about this world in between Liz and Raahosh either lusting after each other, performing various sex acts, or just having sex, period. In fact, I think the sci-fi aspects were even lighter in this book than they were in the first.

The next book stars Kira (a serious woman who had a translator device surgically implanted onto her ear) and Aehako (a cheerful young alien). I'm looking forward to their story a good deal more than I did this one, although, as usual, I'll probably find myself wishing this series were a little more "sci-fi romance and adventure" and a little less "great gobs of sex scenes."

Extras:

Two bonus stories: "Games," in which Liz attempts to cheer Raahosh up; and "Ice Planet Honeymoon: Raahosh & Liz," in which Liz and Raahosh go on their next round of semi-exile but call it a honeymoon, and Raahosh makes a mess of things while struggling with his abandonment issues. Also, an author's note, and a list of series characters and some basic descriptions.

Another fun episode of human/alien love on the ice planet. Not to be taken too seriously. ( )

Delighted to discover that this series doesn’t fall into the trap of telling the same story over and over again, even though the set up could easily lead that way. Liz and Rahosh have a totally different relationship than Georgie and Vekdal, and it’s fascinating to see how the 2 cultures are negotiating. I had a little trouble with them exiling Rahosh and not allowing Liz to leave — free will and all that, but I like the eventual solution and that Liz is able to advocate for her preferred type of lifestyle. Still very smutty, hooray!

Revisited this as a special edition, with extra stories at the end. Worth it! That reading is an Advanced reader's copy provided by Edelweiss. ( )
