On the day the world shook, everything changed for the barbarian tribe. This short story goes back to the event and gives additional insight. How do Rukh and Harlow fare through the disaster? How does the chief handle the destruction of everything he’s ever known?

This short story is a slice of life and intended to be read after Barbarian’s Taming. It is NOT a stand alone. It is, however, intended to provide extra character insight for those who want to visit the ice planet for a little bit longer.


These novellas in the Ice Planet Barbarians series are for fans that like the series. Reading the novellas that go along with the series, add to the characters and world.

Aftershocks does not stand alone, you do need to read it in the order which is between Barbarian’s Taming and Barbarians’ Heart.

The novella follows the horrendous event that happened in the last book and it’s a bit heartbreaking to read. We get snippets of survival (POV’s) from these characters: Rukh and Harlow, Vektal and Georgie, and Pashov and Stacy. It’s not a full story, just a speak in time with these characters and how they are handling the changes.

I had a nice time reading.

Rated: 3 Stars
