    35 intriguing starsGot this book for free and didn't realize it was #8 of the series It is a standalone and the first book where we end up on the barbarian planet So I was able to overlook my series book order obsession ;DI liked Aurina and Kavon both strong and well developed MCs This book is characterized as romance adventure and it isdefinitely has the feel of an Indiana Jones type story

    This is part of the Phoenix Adventures series featuring an assortment of cousins but as this book has a completely different feel it works very well as a standalone one or even just a one off read That being said anyone who reads this story will probably want to read as the author not only writes an adventure chock full of action but it's also a sexy romance with an unusual setting rife with mystery I've previously enjoyed her sci fi world building but this time the action happens on a planet that has a medieval feel with feudal type laws and boy was it funny to see the two main protagonists butt headsI liked Aurina the heroine and she's a gutsy gal who thinks on her feet There's very little that fazes her but she does have a flaw and that's that she allows the past to dictate a little too much for this reader However it's our flaws that make us human so an imperfect heroine works very well hereKavon is the Warlod obsessed by the unusual woman who has just crashed into his life If dominating chest beating males your thing then you will be overjoyed by him The attraction they share is both physical and cerebral but Kavon has a nasty habit of trying to keep Aurina in the dark about things Yes he is trying to protect her but his high handedness might give some readers pause I really enjoyed reading the descriptions of the various creatures living on the planet and particularly Aurinas response to them This crazy mixture of a barbaric planet that's strangely technologically advanced in someways was the perfect setting for the story that follows The couple form a pact the game is afoot and before long the adventure to discover the truth begins Oh and of course there's always time for a little romanceI was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review

    This is the first book I have read in this series and I found it to be enjoyable It was fast paced and had good balance of adventure I'm glad it was offered as a kindleunlimited I'll likely check out others in this series

    A very cute addition to the Phoenix Adventures seriesLoved both the hero a big barbarian and the heroine an intelligent heroine and their love storyThe feel here is not so much futuristic like in the previous books but it is still interestingLooking forward to the next book

    I always put Anna Hackett's books on the bottom of my to read pile; but not for the reason you're thinking Some authors are unable to write a bad book it's rare but it happens and this is definitely the case with this author So I save the books for when I need a good sure fire read I guess you can think of it as saving dessert for lastThis book was no exception I thoroughly enjoyed it Sci fi is a hard genre to write it's a thin line between making characters different and relatable and being too out there This had the perfect balance of everything

    I enjoyed this short and steamy science fiction romance with lots of exciting action that moved right along I liked how the alpha heroine chipped away at the super alpha hero's domineering attitude Space traveling scout Aurina crash lands on a planet of barbaric warriors led by Kavon

    Originally published at Reading RealityThis is the eighth and possibly the last book in Hackett’s Phoenix Adventures Even though two of Aurina’s half brothers are still searching for women who can put up with them their stories do not appear to be on the horizon at the momentWhile the story in On a Barbarian World stands alone it has its roots in Beyond Galaxy's Edge where Aurina’s half brother Justyn finally manages to catch the Patrol Captain who has been hunting his smuggling ass up and down the galaxy for yearsIt also has some parallels to On a Rogue Planet Not so much in its story as in its protagonist In Rogue Planet the female cousin of the other set of Phoenix brothers finds herself stranded on a planet in the middle of a coup In On a Barbarian World the only female member of this side of the Phoenix family finds herself stranded on a low tech world after her scoutship crashes in the middle of a meteor showerThe men in this series mostly hunt down or are hunted down by the women who become the loves of their lives The women in this series have to get grounded to find theirs and the metaphor is unfortunately sticking with meIn many ways this is kind of a first contact story While the relatively primitive Markarians have legends about space travellers no one seems to have actually met one So when Aurina’s crashed ship is discovered she’s uite a noveltyAnd of course the barbarian leader immediately claims her While that initially claiming is stepped back a bit it certainly has lots of sexual overtones Kavon Mal Dor may be overtly giving Aurina the stranger the protection of his clan because every Markarian belongs to a clan but it is clear from the beginning that Kavon really wants to claim AurinaThere’s a whole lot of lust at first sight going on here Initially what attracts Kavon is just how different she is Aurina is a fiery redhead with a redhead’s coloring and temper She is also on the curvy side Markarians on the other hand are tall and muscular including the women And they are all bronze dark a result of their possible Saurian ancestryAs their relationship develops Kavon and Aurina make a lot of assumptions about each other most of which are demonstrably false The barbarians are much much less barbaric than Aurina assumes Well at least Kavon’s people are His enemies are just as nasty as Aurina might imagineAnd of course Kavon thinks that Aurina needs his protection both because she is a woman and because she is a stranger Only one of those two things really matters and a big part of the development of their relationship is Kavon learning to treat Aurina as an eual in a culture where no one is his eual Kavon is warlord and everyone else in the clan is his subordinate Except Aurina She is always insubordinate But utterly captivating to a man who is not used to needing to actually pursue the woman he wantsKavon and Aurina make a deal She will use her scouting skills to help him find the legendary sword Durendal In return he will return her e beacon to her allowing her to contact her brothers and return to her old lifeIn the end the only life they both want is the one that they can make together On Markaria But it will only happen if they both stop making assumptions about who the other is and what the other wants before it is too lateEscape Rating B I liked this but not nearly as much as the other books in The Phoenix Adventures For a lot of the story it struck me too much as “barbarian tames skyflier” and with not nearly enough science fiction in my science fiction romanceThe story seemed a bit of a throwback kind of like Kavon We have the feisty woman who finally gets the warrior to respect her wishes while he retains all the power and in the end she gives up her life to stay with him This story isn’t uite like that but it came close enough to the old “noble savage vs civilized woman” romance to make me uncomfortableI really liked the parts where the science fiction aspects came to the forefront Kavon is searching for the lost legendary sword Durendal which is a piece of the Song of Roland So it’s a legend now in our world and it is still a legend in the future That was cool When Aurina finds Durendal for Kavon she also finds an Earth treasure trove similar to the one that Eos finds in At Star's EndWhen Aurina discovers the sword she also finds information about Markaria’s gods who turn out not to be gods after all but stranded star travelers just like herself Her search upsets their entire culture and yet everyone manages to adjust reasonably well surprisingly uickly I loved the search and discovery but I’m not sure the aftermath would be uite so peaceful If someone discovered that Abraham Isaac and Jacob from the Bible were extraterrestrials and could prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt the resultant crises in Christianity Judaism and Islam would probably tear the world apartOr that’s my opinion Your mileage may varyOn a Barbarian World also suffered from villain failure Kavon’s rival Drog is a low down lying stealing cheating scum He obviously has no honor which is a very big deal in Markarian culture But we don’t see enough of him to know why and he is dispatched much too easily in the climactic battle I would love to have seen his trial and execution just to find out what he thought he was doingAll in all On a Barbarian World feels like a coda to The Phoenix Adventures series While it is possible to start with this relatively stand alone story a better time will be had by starting with At Star's End or Among Galactic Ruins

    Series Phoenix Adventures #6Rating 3 stars it was goodWhen Aurina Phoenix crash lands on a warrior planet she has no idea if she'll make it back to the Phoenix convoy or whether she'll be stuck in this primitive civilization Kavon lives for revenge and Aurina is just one thing in his way so he'll do anything to make sure he can succeedAs usual Anna Hackett offers a great adventure for her readers and I especially enjoyed the low tech vs high tech involved in this one Aurina is a feisty and likable heroine and she and Kavon set off sparks with their battle of wills We haven't seen a whole lot of Aurina in the previous books but I enjoyed reading about her and her adventuresThe Markarians have heard of skyfliers as they call them but it's been a long time since any have landed on their planet So Aurina's tools and knowledge weren't totally out of left field but there was still some issues Kavon is used to always being obeyed and Aurina challenges that at every turn It was enjoyable to watch Kavon grow to respect Aurina's strength and for him to realize that he can get what he wants much easier if he works with her instead of just ordering her around Sometimes Kavon was a bit annoying in his uber possessive nature but it was fitting for a warlord However I like these books because they are science fiction so this one almost felt like historical with the way the characters especially Kavon acted

    Five percent in I knew I'd go looking for the other books from that series It was obviously not the first yet I could tell what was happening and it was awesomeThe treasure hunt was a bit lengthy but other than that I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish and the rest is in my wish list
