Publisher's Summary

I've never spent a day without my mate since arriving on the ice planet. I'm happy and in love, and we have a beautiful child together. All that changed when the world shook.   

My mate nearly died.  

He wakes up from his coma...and he can't remember me. Or our son. Every memory of the past two years is gone. And that changes everything between us. How can I love someone that doesn't remember me?  

How can I not, when I know he's still my mate underneath it all?  

Contains mature themes.

***Barbarian's Heart***

A heart breaking story of lost memories, homes and loved ones. To be honest I was a bit annoyed of Stacy because she was so negative and all she thinks about is poor me and not even try to understands what is Pashov been through and the shocked that he forgot his mate and son, but in the other hand it's also heart breaking for Stacy for her mate to forget her and Pacy on top of losing their homes. It's a very sad and challenging story but I'm glad they figured it all out in the end.

Beautiful second chance story

Listened to the audio that's just come out for this book, I enjoy the narrators so much. What a great second chance story between Pashov and Stacy, one of the many couples on Ruby's ice planet.

You might think the variables of retelling a story of how couples get together on an ice planet where there are no cities or towns, or anything other than a bunch of humans and aliens, would get old or are limited, but Ruby manages to weave a new, wonderful story line into each of the couples getting together. Every story is so different, Ruby has tackled a range of mental health issues, trauma, sexual abuse and physical disabilities into her stories and this one is just as compelling.

Pashov and Stacy are already mated and have a son, they have been together right from the start, when Stacy was awakened from the pod on the space ship, they resonated very quickly, so it is really devastating when an earthquake hits the cave and causes a major upheaval. Pashov is hurt badly by falling rocks and is in a coma for days, when he wakes, he has no memory of his mate or his child and so begins a beautiful story of a resonated couple finding each other again. I really loved this story.
And, if you have no idea what I'm talking about when I say "resonated", you will have to go and start book 1 of the series and find out :)

whiny female alert

I really like a series. But his particular one, the main character female just whines. The entire book. I really would like give me the opportunity to slap her in the back of the head to wake her up. Life happens get over it and get past it.. Unfortunately, the entire book is less about action, and more about what's going on inside of her head.

Good...

I love this series!!! However this story was a bit irritating due to Stacy’s over emotional 😭 constantly saying I can’t have my mate cause he doesn’t remember me!!! Really he almost died and they lost everything I completely agree with the others make new memories!!! Just because he didn’t remember it’s not the end of their relationship plus her constant crying and depressed thinking made it hard on him and the tribe!!! Of course Holly did a perfect job narrating as did the male narrator!!! I hope the next book doesn’t have such a whinny female!!!
Highly recommend

Loved this one!

I’d been hoping the author would tell the story of what happened to Pashal and Stacy after he was injured in the cave-in and this audiobook did a great job! I always like the Ice Planet series and was very entertained by this story. Stacy just wants her mate back, but Pashal doesn’t remember her or the human women coming to Not Hoth. He doesn’t remember their baby either. Can they still make it work? Narration was excellent.

Finding their way back to each other

Best enjoyed if you can read book 8.5 Aftershocks before this book, as it enriches the story and fills in any gaps from book 8.0 Barbarian’s Taming.
The Clan is devastated after the earthquake has destroyed their home cave. It has taken Pashov a long time to recover from his serious injuries and he has lost many memories, including those of his mate Stacey, and their son, Pacey. They deal with the challenges of moving their home camp to the new valley, and in finding their way back to each other.
I REALLY like the tandem narration by Jackson and Lloyd, where she takes female and he takes male voices. Well done!

Heartwarming

This is the love story between Stacie and Pashov.

Pashov wakes up from the cave in, alive but no memories from the last two years. He has forgotten his mate and kit. He wakes up to find that he is homeless and the world full of many human faces.

Poor Stacie is heartbroken. It takes her a long time to realize that they can make new memories.

A long time. They have a hard time reconnecting. Harrec helps, by making him jealous 😂.

Taking her to a cave helps, until a mother metlak comes. And they come home. Stacie forgot that she told him she wasn't ready for him as a mate. This the misunderstanding. They discovered eggs after a fight and crying, they made up and resonated again.

Not sure so far. Few hours left...

So far.... spoilers btw

Pashov nearly died and when recovered couldn't remember Stacy or his child. Despite that, he's trying to be her mate again and a father again, whilst struggling with the fact he can't remember them and wishing he could. Yet, it doesn't seem good enough for Stacy because he doesn't do the things he did before, like touch her the way he had or kiss her. She sleeps with him and then regrets it because she feels it's a betrayal to his old self and feels guilty. Wtf? Seriously, I can understand she misses certain things between them, but at least he's alive!! and is trying to make her happy. Doesn't that count for something? You'd think him being dead would be worse than losing his memory of her and their kit, but it isn't coming across that way. They have a second chance where they can make new memories, but she just seems to want the old him. She comes across as ungrateful and selfish, despite her telling herself otherwise and trying to make up excuses. She is my least favourite female in this series so far... whuch is something as i liked all the others. It would have made more sense if he were the reluctant one considering he was the one who almost died and lost his memory, but it's her.

Never thought I'd say this about one of these books, but it's annoying me so bad right now...or at least Stacy is. Despite that, it's still entertaining and I'll continue to listen on just to see how the others are and their move to the new home found in the previous book.
