"a wonderfully sexy and steamy story"
Within the pages of In Ice, which is the first book in
her new series, Wereplanets, Crystal Jordan creates a
wonderfully sexy and steamy story based in the future
after the sun has died. It’s now 500 years later and
humans have been genetically spliced with various animals
in order to help them survive the new planets on which
they must now reside.
When Jain Robert’s, an Earthan teacher, whose ship which
was headed for the planet of Aquatilis, crashes on a
planet that is covered in a bitterly cold and frozen
landscape, not only doesn’t she recognize the planet, but
she’s also not sure how long she’ll survive naked and
Kesuk, a human who has been genetically spliced with a
polar bear, hears the explosion on his land and comes to
investigate. Expecting to face yet another feud with the
Brown Bear Clan, he’s startled to hear a ragged cry
of “help” drift through the winds. What he finds is a
tiny – and naked – woman. Kesuk isn’t sure who the
glorious naked woman is, but he does know that she is his.
The sexual attraction between Jain & Kesuk is instant –
and strong. But will that be enough for them to overcome
their own personal demons and allow them to be together?
I was intrigued by the overall premise of this book –
humans who are forced to find a way to survive on other
planets or risk dying out all together. I found the
overall story line very different and out of the ordinary
and the characters very likable. The interaction between
Jain & Kesuk was steamy, if not a bit rushed for my
tastes; I tend to like just a bit more sexual tension
though. Also, this being the first book of a new series,
I was expecting a little more external conflict with the
other genetically altered clans since it seemed to be
somewhat of an on-going issue in the story.
Overall, I would recommend this new series to fans of
erotic shapeshifter stories that are looking for a fairly
quick and easy read. I’m looking forward to seeing where
Ms. Jordan is taking this series and do believe that I’ll
go along for the ride.
