My Review

Since I picked one of Ruby’s books some time ago, I’ve been a die-hard fan of her Ice Planet Barbarian series. This book belongs to a spin-off series called IceHome that feature some of my beloved characters from the other series.

Veronica is a clumsy female that was abducted from earth to be sold as a slave but before she got to be one, she was set free on an ice freezing cold planet. She thought nothing of herself, she believes there was nothing special about her, but when she got her khui… Oh, she was more special than she could have thought.

Ashtar was a dragon shifter from another planet, abducted when he was eight to be sold as a slave and became a gladiator. He knew no freedom during his life, no friendship, no trust, no nothing, only fighting in the Arena and if he lost, he died. When his khui resonated with Veronica he couldn’t have been happier because she already was on his radar as soon as he woke up. But having a human mate was not easy and a compromise was necessary, and he wasn’t used to that.

To think that I was stolen from my planet to be a gladiator and somehow ended up with the finest mate in three worlds… I am beyond lucky. This is a good life. ~ Ashtar

Do I have to explain to you how much I love this couple? It was so much fun to forget normal boring human life (mine) and got into an ice planet with a mighty dragon as a mate. I love to see the growth and development of Veronica each day that she was with him alone, away from the tribe.

I know these books are fantasy but how they get to solve their problems can be so relatable. The struggles Ashtar went through, to be honest with his mate. The way Veronica had to adapt to his moods and behaviors. How he got to grow as a male by making friends and learning to do things for his mate.

Somehow being in a deserted planet, even a fantasy one, makes you see how many things we take for granted on a day to day basis. Other stories make this too but Veronica’s Dragon was beautiful to read and to get lost in.

For those of you that know the author and the other series, Ashtar is a drakoni like the dragons in the Fireblood Dragons series but according to the author, he was raised completely differently so he does not behave exactly like them.

She needs me to go slow. She needs time to adjust to this bond between us. She__
She is grabbing my cock… ~ Ashtar

Also, in case you haven’t notice… most of the books I read have sex scenes in them and this is not an exception to that rule *big grin*

I strongly recommend you to pick this book up. You don’t need to read the previous ones or other series because this stands on its own but I can assure you, it won’t be long before you’re reading the rest to get to know beautiful characters.
