One morning, gentle Maylak wakes up and feels a sense of oncoming dread. As the tribe's healer, it is her job to ensure that everyone is safe, happy, and healthy... and they are.

So what can be threatening her people?

Moving Day
Farli helps move Maddie into the new 'girls' cave while avoiding some prospective suitors.

These are two slice of life short stories set in the ICE PLANET BARBARIANS series and do not stand alone. They should be read after BARBARIAN'S TOUCH and are a little bit of sweetness and family life for those waiting for the next full book release.


The Ice Planet Barbarians series should be read in order. As for Calm this one should be read after Barbarian’s Touch. Fan’s will enjoy the little slice of life in the barbarian tribe we have come to know and love.

Calm is about Maylak and Kashrem. We get a peek into their lives. We get to see how hard the healer works to take care of those in the tribe, her fears, and the upcoming birth of their child. We also get to visit all the previous couples and their families.

Calm is a nice slice in the lives of the Ice Planet Barbarians. I enjoyed this short story.

Rated: 3 Stars

    • I know the cover is a little unsettling.

  5. Interesting cover. Thanks for the heads up about reading in order. I like the little side stories mixed in with a series and usually grab them all.

    • Some side stories in series can be read on their own, but others need to go in order with the series. I like to know if I can read the short’s or novellas out of order. Ya, the cover is a little unsettling and different. Thank’s for visiting.
