I might be the only unmated female in my tribe, but it doesn’t mean I’ve given my heart. I’m waiting. I want resonance, and I won’t settle for anything less.
But when an alien ship lands and a handsome stranger steps out, I know he’s the one. His name’s Mardok and he’s fascinatingly different – and distractingly appealing. But Mardok can’t stay on the ice planet, and he says he can take me with him.
Now, I must make a choice. Do I stay and lose my mate forever? Or do I follow him to the stars and leave behind everything I know?

Barbarian’s Choice is Farli’s story and I have mixed feelings about this one. I LOVE how one of the people in Ice Planet had to teach something since in most of the books humans taught them things, like kissing.

“Perhaps I am a dreamer, but I am waiting for a hunter that looks at me with fire in his belly and stars in his eyes.”

Mardok went through a lot during the war (which Farli had no idea what it means) including loosing his arm, so now he had a bionic arm. His skin is blue like Farli’s but paler than hers. Maybe there’s human in his family, like ancestor or something. I understood why he didn’t want to stay in Not-Hoth. I mean I hate Finnish winter but to actually go through harsh winter of the ice planet? Yikes. But I still didn’t really understand why he didn’t choose Farli over everything, even if I understood his fear. In my opinion Mardok’s world sounded more horrible though, like their fear of diseases.

Farli has a heart of gold and she has no idea what war or guns mean. She had no idea what happened when her per got shot. Farli loved the ice planet but she also doesn’t want to give Mardok up.

I don’t know what it is about different species falling in love that draws me in so quickly. I fell in love with this couple since the moment Mardok saw Farli and though he was dreaming. Neither wants to give up on each other but Farli has to either give up her “cootie” like humans say and everything and everyone she’s ever known or her mate since Mardok has no intentions of staying. I liked that he was protective as hell of her even if Mardok didn’t resonance to Farli.
