Devi's Distraction PDF, ePub eBook It's hard to make friends with the other women at the Icehome camp when you'd rather be dissecting the local fauna. Which is why I'm surprised when one of the big, brawny islanders asks me to help him make a prosthetic leg. I don't know N'dek, but since I'm a scientist, he wants my help. And while I'm more into dinosaurs than anatomy, I love a challenge!As we work together It's hard to make friends with the other women at the Icehome camp when you'd rather be dissecting the local fauna. Which is why I'm surprised when one of the big, brawny islanders asks me to help him make a prosthetic leg. I don't know N'dek, but since I'm a scientist, he wants my help. And while I'm more into dinosaurs than anatomy, I love a challenge!As we work together, I come to see that N'dek's not just clever and determined, he's also protective and sweet. And he kisses like a fiend!He's a distraction I don't need... but he might be everything I've ever wanted. Too bad he says he's going to resonate to someone else...

Aftermath: (possible spoilers) While I might be annoyed, with some South Indian girl calling her grandmother 'nani' (they never call them 'nani' it is 'awa'), Devi's character is geeky and so adorable. She is funny without trying, smart without showing. My kind of gurl...

My heart gives a massive sigh of contentment when I think about Devi’s Distraction. This book was satisfying on a couple of different levels. We have the two outsiders coming together and finding belonging…and then also realising that they were never really outsiders. And we have N’dek taking control of his destiny and finding ways to embrace life with only one leg. This book packed a lot in a short number of pages – Devi’s Distraction was under 200 pages. This book has Dixon’s signature mix of humour, adorable alien male antics and red hot sexy times. This book also set up some of the other characters in Icehome and I can’t wait to see what happens next in this small human-alien village!

    Dr. Devi Balasubramanian has always been a loner as not many people share her love of all things fossils. As a Paleontologist there really isn't much call for her skills in this new world except Devi feels that by examining the current life form biodiversity washing up on the beaches she can contribute value, though her fellow tribemates don't yet realize how that could be. Words. Words. Words. All the human females do is talk words that confuse N'dek though why he should care is the mystery. Ha Dr. Devi Balasubramanian has always been a loner as not many people share her love of all things fossils. As a Paleontologist there really isn't much call for her skills in this new world except Devi feels that by examining the current life form biodiversity washing up on the beaches she can contribute value, though her fellow tribemates don't yet realize how that could be. Words. Words. Words. All the human females do is talk words that confuse N'dek though why he should care is the mystery. Having lost part of his leg, his value to his tribe as a hunter and a potential mate for the females is long gone. His only purpose now is to tend the fire pit and wait for the fates to end is misery through death. It is only when one of the human females mimics having the horns of his fellow hunters that an idea comes to mind. Creating an artificial leg that could help him walk again and be the man he once was. He just needs to find someone who is smart enough to help him achieve that dream. * * * * In this the seventh installment of the "Ice House" series N'dek finally gets his story. I have long wondered why the idea of crutches was never introduced for N'dek as for the most part he was dependent on J'shel and the others to cart him around all the time. I'd be depressed too if that was me. A proud warrior hunter who has standing in his community forced to be carried and could only tend a fire. Totally agitated as his fellow tribe never did anything other than enable that. OK. Onto the actual story. For the most part it's an evolving romance story line between Devi & N'dek. There's angst. There's evolving sexual feelings that I liken to a baseball game (first base, second base, third base, and eventually a home run). There's even a love triangle of sorts angle. What there isn't is a meaningful action-adventure-twist-crisis for the characters to deal with. To clarify, there is a hurdle to deal with but it really doesn't have much meat to it. Secondary characters. This would be the only concern I'd have for any potential new reader to the series. There is a core cast of characters who each get their own book/story but each installment can be read as a standalone as long as the reader realizes they may lose some degree of understanding individual character profiles. Only new character in this story is kaari, which I would definitely not see wanting as a pet myself. In all actuality this is one of the better installments written by this author in recent times, I enjoyed the back and forth interactions between Devi & N'dek as they came to realize they really didn't need resonance to validate their relationship, though it sure does help. 😘

    While I literally die from waiting for a new Ruby book monthly if I'm lucky :), the character of Devi had me so intrigued in Hannah's Hero I have been counting the minutes until this book arrived and I am beyond thrilled now having read it and broken since it's over. As someone who is obscenely obsessed with the idea of an apocalypse (in any form) the fact that Devi was studying so many things to discover as many new things about Not Hoth as she could was riveting. I like how she questions every While I literally die from waiting for a new Ruby book monthly if I'm lucky :), the character of Devi had me so intrigued in Hannah's Hero I have been counting the minutes until this book arrived and I am beyond thrilled now having read it and broken since it's over. As someone who is obscenely obsessed with the idea of an apocalypse (in any form) the fact that Devi was studying so many things to discover as many new things about Not Hoth as she could was riveting. I like how she questions everything and tries to learn whatever she can however she can. When we first get a glimpse of Devi in Hannah's book she is not necessarily portrayed the best. The other woman rather than try to get to know or understand her, just assume she's lost it and is disemboweling creatures on the beach because she's crazy. However that is so not the case. Devi is the most academically trained woman on the beach and she's most certainly the least disturbed by being thrust onto a new planet. In fact the entire planet of Not Hoth is a petri-dish for Devi and one she cannot stop nor wait to learn about. As a scientist in training Not Hoth is everything her heart desires and more. In fact it makes her exceedling happy she's "the first" to discover these things, as let's be honest, even the inhabitants of the planet could care less about most of what Devi researches if you will. Ahhhh I loooved her. I loved her enthusiasm and joy for all things new. In fact one thing that answered all my prayers was how she kept notes on animal skins. I had high hopes in Hannah's book given that she was a writer but I kept waiting for someone to find someway to create a written system in the new world. Not even just personally for Devi's experiments but something to track everything in regards to the people and planet. There's so much history that I think the people can benefit from especially future generations on the planet. Devi starting this made me love her even more. Now our Hero N'Dek. Ugh what a guy. It's been so hard since his entrance into the series to not just feel for him in so many ways. We all know what it's like to suffer, to be in pain and sometimes feel worthless. That is only exacerbated in his case since he lost his leg in a horrible accident. As with the written word on Not Hoth, every time N'Dek was mentioned I kept waiting for someone to suggest a prosthetic for him. I mean come on there's got ot be at least 20+ human women on the planet and not one thought to mention the concept to him or offer to help? I'm still a little upset by this but N'dek has enough one day of living half a life. Staring into the flames of the fire pit can only last so long before you go crazy and luckily rather than become more depressed N'dek decides so take control of his destiny. That's where Devi comes in. As the smartest of the woman and most knowledgeable, N'Dek seeks her out to assist him in this matter. And boy does she. Within one day Devi has something put together for N'dek. I loved their relationship because it was a slow burn. The two don't resonate immediately, in fact N'dek himself is convinced for a bit he's going to resonate, but to someone else :0 In true Ruby fashion the two complement each-other to a T and once N'dek begins to see Devi and his, this man is determined and will let nothing stand in his way of Devi being his mate, resonance be damned. Ahhhhh I loved this book so dang much, I'm truly sad to see these two as over for now. Although I will admit, also in Ruby fashion, there was so much intro's of other relationships and story lines to come that once again I'm salivating for what comes next. I could rave more about this book but there's no point, it speaks for itself. If your a fan of the series this is a must read and while Devi's scientific side may not be for everyone the evolution of N'dek alone is worth the read :) Go read it, what are you waiting for. Ahhh just ending this review is hard because I feel there's still so much even as a reader to learn from Devi lol And now I'm off to not so patiently wait and stalk Ruby for whatever she has in store for us next!

Devi's Distraction is among by favorites of the Ice Planet Barbarians and Ice Home series. It is so hard to pick an all-time-favorite, because Ruby Dixon does such a great job of making these characters real and different, along with unique challenges that each resonating couple must overcome. A socially out of step heroine... I adore Devi, a scientist-nerd who is socially out of step with the rest of the humans, but who is also innocent, sweet, and kind hearted. Her excitement over the anatomy of the dead creatures she finds washed up on the beach is endearing as is her cup-half-full way of dealing with suddenly finding herself stranded for the rest of her life on a planet far from home. She throws herself into the new life with excitement about learning all she can. She knows she is different and accepts that about herself. Rather than bemoaning that she has no close BFF’s, she chooses to focus on experiencing all the new wonders and possibilities. An injured hero struggling with a recent disability... N’Dek of the Strong-Arm Clan immediately tugged at my heart strings. On an ill-fated hunting trip with his clan brother J’shell, N’dek narrowly survived a battle with a crocodilian-like kaar that bit off one of his legs before J’shell finally killed it. Not long after that, their volcanic island exploded in a devastating eruption that plunged what was left beneath the ocean. Survivors of the island clans swam to the icy shore, where they joined the humans in their struggle to assimilate into a new life, a different native tribe, and an frigid environment so different from the steamy jungle island that was their home. Still suffering physical and emotional pain from the loss of his leg, and humiliated by his need to be carried everywhere he would go, N’dek spends most of his time morosely staring into the flames of the main camp fire. That is where he is first noticed by Devi, who begins to pull him out of his depression by speaking to him without pity and treating him normally. When N’dek gets the idea to try and make.a prosthetic leg for himself, it is Devi he confides in; and, she is eager to apply herself to the challenge. Their steamy romance will warm your heart (and more)! I want to keep going and tell you about the great story, but no spoilers! If you are already a fan of Ice Planet Barbarians and Ice Home, you will love Devi's Distraction. If the series are new to you, I recommend starting with Ice Planet Barbarians. If you love steamy romance with human women, alien men, and sci-fi survival adventure stories, then you will likely join the legions of adoring Ruby Dixon fans who eagerly await each new book, as do I!

I get this character. I loved N’Dek, he was just genuine! He just wanted to be him and be comfortable with himself again and wether you are an amputee or a mom whose gone through a c-section with twins that wrecked your body- you get him, you understand where this man is coming from. I swear, Ms Dixon hit the mark with these two! Just amazing. FAVORITE SO FAR! Gah! Keep ‘me coming!

    The frozen planet the humans have landed on is so freaking captivating. I blame those hunky, blue aliens. It doesn't matter whether they have a few extras (arms, horns, whatever!), they're all sweethearts who dedicate themselves full-on to the one the resonate with (sometimes before they resonate, too!) and I just adore them.

N'dek has been the surly, bystander since the group came across the water from the island. He's not a grump by nature, though, it's more because he's dealing with the loss of his leg and his independence and then suddenly getting uprooted from the place he and his tribe had called home. He's dealing with things, man. Big things. Asking Devi to help him make a prosthetic is when everything changes for him. He finds someone who doesn't pity him, but sees his request as a challenge she's willing to tackle. As you would expect, things start to heat up the more time they spend with one another. Quite frankly, that's what I'm here for. THE HEAT. Sexy times and sweetness, guys. I'm here for it. So hard. N'dek and Devi hit those metrics and I am very curious about Bridget and A'tam and how things are going to play out there. -Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal

    I haven't read the other books in this series. Should you? Yes, so you know who everyone is. It wasn't terribly difficult to figure things out, but it might make it more enjoyable. Devi and N'dek's story. Devi is a scientist and N'dek is a hunter. Only N'dek hasn't been hunting lately. He lost part of his leg and is now drug everywhere. He is humiliated and wants to get back to himself. N'dek reaches out to Devi, she is the smartest woman in the tribe. She'll be able to help him.

He is waiting for his resonating to start with a female. Yet he is hesitant for that to happen, he has never been with a human female and will need help. N'dek seduces Devi and in the process loses his heart to her. Devi is happy to help N'dek with a prosthetic for his leg. It will be a challenge for her. However, she is unprepared for N'dek and his body. She is drawn to him. There are so many questions she wants to ask him but doesn't think it would be polite. Until he starts asking questions. They strike up an easy friendship, but it quickly turns. Is Devi ready for this? With him? What about S'been? Will, I read more of this series - probably not. This book was ok for me. I did skim some parts because I was tired of the drama from B'shit and all the characters kind of ran together. I know you need lots of characters for a series - do I have to read about them all in one book? No.

    I've been waiting for this story since we first met N'dek in Lauren's story. I'll admit, I felt sorry for him even though he doesn't want to be pitied. I can't imagine how it must be to go from being one of the best hunters to being carried around by your clan members. Until this story, I didn't really much about Devi. It's very cool that she was a paleontologist on her world. As usual, Ruby picks the two people with matching holes in their middles and fits them together like a jigsaw puzzle.

    I was nervous about this one because I didn't want to read about Devi playing second fiddle to Bridget. Thankfully, that never happened. I unabashedly love reading about smart people. Not know it alls but intelligent, curious people. Devi was that and more. She and N'dek were really good together. They balanced each other out and I loved that they actually talked instead of just falling all over each other.

Feel a hankering for four arms? Developed a taste for perwinkle? Lets be honest. Horny, *coughcough* blue, body strait from the Gods alien men, ribbed for her pleasure, who just want to spoil the ever lovin' caboodles out of ya? Im strait up Mary Poppinsing it up out this Biotsh. How many books deep into this world are we? It's funny, because it feels like we just got abducted and crash landed on Not-Hoth. I think It's really fascinating how familiar you really become with the world that has been built here. I mean, I almost wrote Dvisti on a word search for the name of an animal starting with D. (I could argue i could also be called a Dumby but anyways.) That how deep you get in this world. It. Literally. Becomes. Home #2. I think it's really fascinating getting to see multiple outlooks from h's all coming from different walks of life. Someone maybe who was close to their family could be miserable, someone who had no family might like the opportunity to start over; whether the good the bad or the ugly it always feels so gosh darn REAL . Fear, apprehension, nerves, intrigue, or with the attitude that,"Well...I'm stuck here. Might as well take the bull by the *coughcough* HORNS." Seeing real life women who aren't all Katniss Everdeen, who don't suddenly have the skills at hand to survive a foreboding frozen unknown world. While that is a concern, and granted a few do have those bad-a$$ skills (but they also had those on earth so whatev's), the big blue aliens who inevitably help them take that massive concern away. The struggles they face become something far more...relatable. Self-image, self-confidence, anxiety, mourning loved ones you'll never see again, mourning the life you'll never return to, and whether or not your Cootie deems you worthy of a once in a lifetime lovemate to make lots and lots of babies with. Maybe not the last one is AS relatable but, you get the point. As for our Big Blue Aliens. They are just too friggin' sweet. Not in a nauseating "I just inhaled every piece of Halloween candy within a two mile radius", kind of way. More like a "I have a box of Nutella Krispy Kreme's, a snuggy, and a horde of labradoodle puppies" kind of sweet. In other words, Perfecto. They just want to resonate and share their furs with someone, the hope in their eyes positively glowing. WELL, NOT in like a Children of the Damned way, more like a parasitic chest worm that makes breathing the air safe and vibrates when you and the best possible candidate to make babies with find each other. So.....ya know.....better. I will be the first to say, I genuinely thought these books were a joke when i first picked them up. Past me was simply trying to deny that any attraction to a big blue alien with other questionable traits was completely out of the question.HA. Ha. Nice try past me. Present me calls you on your bologna. If anything these books have opened my mind to the fact that men of Earth may simply never live up to my Kui's standards. And there is literally no end in sight? That's like the Jackpot Motherload of all big beautiful book series' heaven. SO. Feeling a craving for the slightly bizarre, wonderfully pleasant, scorchingly hot, and heartwarmingly happily ever after? Then Honey, look no further. 4.65 first-class-ticket-to-Not-Hoth-to-meet-the-big-blue-love-of-my-life stars 🎇

They were both kind and thoughtful and intuitive and insightful, full of passion for life and each other... But most of all both were open and honest . No petty or silly games were played.

Neither Devi or N’dek expected the to read their mind or act like could . Though I loved how were both soo thoughtful they seemed to anyway... Devi got how sensitive N’dek was about his leg and why and was careful about what she said and or did to keep from wounding his pride and or feelings and almost from the start N’dek saw how differently Devi saw the world 🌍 an quickly came to appreciate her abs it... I loved how thoughtful they both were,it’s a type of sweetness you don’t often see in or out of books sadly.. I wish there had been more depth to Devi’s knowledge and or interest.. I mean Devi isn’t just the weird geeky nerd like she might have called herself,someone NEEDS to wonder how the world works and what’s going on and why what happens where.. No matter the sweet abs mostly simple barbarian society they have going on here,someone NEEDS to be trying to understanding the world 🌎 around them and all the who’s,the what’s,the whys,the how’s and the when’s of this ice planet 🌏. Everything happens for a reason. Especially earthquake and volcanic eruption‘s and animals that might want to eat them. Simplistic may be nice but ignorant is not. Looking back I just wish Devi’s insight and keen mind had been used to solve some problem and both had something a bit more interesting to contribute to the over all arc of things other than sneaking around and trying to avoid all the drama with B’sh it and A’tam... A story which I doubt very seriously I will want to read.. I know it takes all types of personalities to form a world/series like this but the way B’sh %- handled things w/A’tam was not right.. Ok,Soo sex went wrong and it hurt. Yelling and screaming and just assuming a huge blue alien is supposed to understand you w/out you once really trying to explain is just down right dumb. Earth men don’t always get it , even w/all th knowledge around them and available to them,soo what the heck you expect a guy on the other side or the cosmos to just read your mind and understand is just childish and beyond immature. No Thank you.. I wish there had been more to this story, but that said they were sweet and endearing and I had more fun w/them than I have in a very long time on the frozen planet. Quite honestly I’d just about given up on this series . It started soo beautifully but for a long while not it had started to feel played out. I’m grateful I was wrong.. Thank you.

    I always love when I get to return home to the Ice Planet. There is something that is just so fun and enjoyable about these books, even when they tackle serious topics. The main characters in this one were such a breath of fresh air. Devi tends to stick to herself. She easily gets lost in her thoughts. And her mind is going a million miles an hour here on her brand new planet. She is fascinated by everything around her and can't wait to take it all apart to learn even more. N'dek has been down an I always love when I get to return home to the Ice Planet. There is something that is just so fun and enjoyable about these books, even when they tackle serious topics. The main characters in this one were such a breath of fresh air. Devi tends to stick to herself. She easily gets lost in her thoughts. And her mind is going a million miles an hour here on her brand new planet. She is fascinated by everything around her and can't wait to take it all apart to learn even more. N'dek has been down and grumpy since he lost his leg back on the Island. He struggles to see his worth when he has to rely on those around him to get anywhere. That is until he has the idea that he can fashion himself a leg and approaches Devi for help. I think part of what had me loving this story so much was that I could see bits of myself in both characters. Like Devi I often get so absorbed in what I am doing that I don't pay attention to some of that practical stuff surrounding me. Like her I am too excited about what I am discovering to need to bother with anything else. Like N'dek, I have questioned my worth now that my body is not whole. Yes, I have all of my limbs... but still my body doesn't work right. For 5 years now I have been on modified bedrest. And when your ability to do every day things that others don't think twice about is taken from you it can be a struggle to remember how much worth you still have to offer. Your life has been flipped on its head. Watching N'dek come back into himself and begin to realize that his friends did not see him as a burden but rather as strong and mighty just warmed my heart. Devi and N'dek had a slow burn romance. They started as friends and couldn't fight their attraction to each other. But no worries when it heats up, it burns!

    Loved N'dek and Devi I'm so sad that we have so long to go til the release of the next story after reading the authors notes it seems like she's going to be publishing so new books for her other series which I also enjoy but not as much as icehome. So I'm very sad because I really want to find out who we will be reading about next I really hope it's A'tam and Bridgette I swear they kill me with the way they pronounce her name every time I read it I end up in stitches laughing my butt off.

I really want to find out what's going to happen between those two because after reading this we see A'tam has had enough of Bridgettes rejection and he tries to leave the camp, but he is eventually brought back due to the threat of Old Grandfather. Before he returns Devi finds Bridgette in the Cave and she had been crying because she was so upset of him leaving and she admitted that she was purposefully pushing him away by being mean because she's scared of being with him intimately. Which only raises a dozen more questions for me because I always thought A'tam and Bridgette had already gone all the way together? She tells Devi that they were tried and it was way too painful for her to be with him I guess I would have to go back and reread the previous books when A'tam joins the group to see if I'm correct. Anyways do your self a favor check this one out it is so very sweet but if you haven't read the previous books go back and start from the beginning

    When Ndek was 1st introduced, I remember thinking, please don't let him have a book. I have an issue with amputated legs, since my grandmother ended up losing both of hers before she died. Needless to say, when I found out about this book & learned that Ndek would get a prosthetic, I was intrigued. This turned out to be one of my favorites in the entire series. Devi was a scientist, who loved artifacts. At first, I wondered why Ruby didn't pair him up with an engineer.

Devi was a scientist, who loved artifacts. At first, I wondered why Ruby didn't pair him up with an engineer. As I was reading, I realized that a bone prosthetic lined up better with the story. They lost the ship that would have had any hi-tech equipment for a leg, so a bone-leather leg was the next best thing. This story had and slow build of romance. Devi is one of my fav heroine's. I like that she is strong willed and doesn't let the opinions of others sway her. What you see, is what you get. What I liked most was that Devi treated Ndek like he was normal. In her eyes, he was whole. Half the time, I forgot about his leg, because it wasn't a flaw in her eyes. That's shows great character. Devi's Distraction was humorous and full of steamy romance. Of all the humans and aliens on the Ice planet, I think that Ndek was the most depressed. I'm thrilled that he and Devi found happiness and that he once again felt whole.

    Devi and N'dek Wow! I haven't enjoyed a book like this for a long time. My favourite so far. Ruby Dixon is a fantastic storyteller with amazing world build making you feel you are right there, in the thick of the action. Devi's distraction is one of her most sought after ( I am pretty sure) stories and I can Express was worth the wait. We have been introduced to both Devi and N'dek's characters in previous books in the series hence their much expected book. N'dek is from the island that previousl Devi and N'dek Wow!

We have been introduced to both Devi and N'dek's characters in previous books in the series hence their much expected book. N'dek is from the island that previously exploded in a massive eruption forcing him and his tribe of Strong arms and 3 other rival tribes to come to the " main land" and be park of what is now known as the ice home. However he is still reeling from the loss of his leg in a fight with a crocodile like creature. He finally asks Devi, the scientist and brainy female of the group to help him build a prosthetic leg. I was looking forward to this story and I was not dessapointed!!!! I am so glad that the whole story was not based entirely of his leg and we were taken in their journey of getting to know each other. So heartwarming and feel good story. I love how N'dek just went for it and bravely confessed how much he cared for her....this story will stay with me for a long time. Highly recommend

    Would purchase every one of them! Kindle unlimited purchase By Ruby Dixon Devi is distracted by the items washing up on the beach so that is where you can find her. N'dek has lost his leg during a hunting accident. Now, most days you can see him sitting at his normal spot in front of the fire. he has watched the others. How "they" get around and now he has an idea. But who can he trust to help him and keep it a secret? This book was great! RD did N'dek and his prosthetic justice.

And she was right when she said at the end of the book. Yes, a normal timeline for someone learning how to walk with a prosthetic is longer. But if readers can believe that aliens with 4 arms are real then a little tweak with that should work out just fine. Icehome and IBP are one of my favorite series and when a new book is released my family knows to leave me alone for at least 4 hours. The only thing I think would make the series (both of them) better is to have ALL the books out in audio! I would purchase every one of them!

    The story I have been waiting for, thank you I did not think it was going to be the next book in this series. N'dek lost part of his leg when he was on a hunting trip on the island. He has now come to realize he has to do something, so he asks who is the smartest of the Human women. He is told Devi. He goes to her and asks if she could make him a prosthetic for his leg so he can walk again, but he wants it kept on the quiet. They meet at his lodging and because she told him he stinks he is naked The story I have been waiting for, thank you I did not think it was going to be the next book in this series.

He goes to her and asks if she could make him a prosthetic for his leg so he can walk again, but he wants it kept on the quiet. They meet at his lodging and because she told him he stinks he is naked having a bath when Devi comes. They try the part on his leg and she goes back to her sleeping furs. Devi and N'dek become friends but he thinks Bridget is to be his mate. I enjoyed reading their story. There is suspense, drama, danger, some conflict happening in the Icehome tribe, games on the beach, misunderstanding, another man who just wants to be Devi's friend, a woman who is happy finding out what kind of animal life is around her. I read a copy through KU and I am Voluntarily reviewing.

    Devi just wants to be left alone so she can study the creatures near the beach but with resonance going on and the games, it isn’t going to happen. N’dek always sits alone but has realized that perhaps it is time to find a way to be independent again. He looks to the smartest human female and Devi is it. She will help make him a prosthetic so he can be more independent but them being close brings more than just simple friendship. For one, why does N’dek keep thinking he will probably resonate to Devi just wants to be left alone so she can study the creatures near the beach but with resonance going on and the games, it isn’t going to happen.

For one, why does N’dek keep thinking he will probably resonate to Bridget? The “Cootie” decides that. And his feelings for Devi shows when the games start. Even though Devi is a loner she still gravitates to N’dek. These two are well matched. Both loners for different reasons but still alone and finding a connection in this crazy world. I love that they took their time. And we have discovered more animals on the beach. S’bren is sweet. He is shy and trying to learn what a female would like. I look forward to who we read about next.

N’dek is sure he’s going to resonate soon and thinks it might be to Bridget. Although Devi is attracted to him she keeps her feelings to herself once she hears this. I enjoyed seeing N’dek regain his independence. Devi is a smart and mentally strong woman, I prefer reading about characters like her! As always Ms Dixon has written another great story, in her Blue Barbarians Series.

    Science saves a broken hunter. This is a very touching book about overcoming a disability. Brainy science gal,Devi is delighted with her new world and all the new life forms she can catalog. She’s sweet and nerdy but she owns it that makes her a strong lady. N’dek has been injured in a hunt and lost part of his leg. He’s a he-man type hunter and never been anything else.

She just sees a problem that needs a fix. I think all of us see ourselves so much worse than the world does. Constantly worrying that we don’t measure up. or maybe just me. Lol This is a beautiful addition to the series. Love it.
