Life has taught me that I can't trust anyone. Not friends, not family. In the worst, darkest moments, no one can be counted on to have your back. Even a billion miles away from Earth, on a remote icy planet, I still feel alone. The only consolation? I haven't resonated. It's not that I don't want love or children. I just can't trust anyone, even myself.

But then one day, my khui resonates, and it's to the last guy I ever expected. In fact, I resonate so hard that my chest is singing its mating song before his does. That never happens.

So what does a calm, rational, grown woman do when life turns upside down?

She runs for the hills, of course.

I should have known he'd follow me.


Sam’s Secret is book fourteen in the Icehome series by Ruby Dixon. This series needs to be read in order.

Sam has learned not to trust anyone and being on Not-Hoth hasn’t changed that. She’s glad she hasn’t resonated, but things are about to change.

Sam is one of the strong and resourceful humans in the series. I like that about her. We finally understand what drives her. Now I understand her fears about relationships, but her concerns where ridiculous on the Icehome plant. Don’t want to give anything away.

Seesah has been the gangly teenager in the series, but now he’s a man. I liked how he took it slow with Sam and let her set the pace.

Trigger Warnings: abuse, stalking, threats

Overall, Sam’s Secret was ok. Not my favorite. It moved the series along and added another couple by the end.

Rated: 3 Stars
