    A different direction.

    This novel was just that - novel. Viehl chose to keep us guessing as to which character was Cherrijo. I agonized over the rigors the women experienced, and Duncan's search. I wasn't certain how the story would progress, and that added a great deal to the emotional impact of the story. Those that like only standard happy endings need not bother reading this book, but for those of us committed to the characters, it is another arduous journey for Cherrijo, and another strong chapter in her eventful life.

    A Very Confusing Read

    Tried to follow the characters and keep all of the story in focus was not easy to do. Focus was not in this part of the series at all.

    Disappointing

    Dr. Cherijo Torin's ship crashes on an ice covered planet named Akkabarr. The royal and the rich live in suborbital cities, far above the icy climate, and untouchable. They grant food and other necessities to those on the planet as long as they obey. When Cherijo crashed, she sustained a major head injury. But we all know how hard it is for Cherijo to die. With the help of another rare healer, she survives, but has no memory of her past. Her husband, Duncan Reever, locates her after two long years. He vows to bring his wife home or die trying. Yet this must be done quietly because Akkabarr's surface people are in the midst of a rebellion against their masters above. ................ *** I am disappointed in this episode. There is not much real action going on. As for those medical emergencies that always seemed to entice those of us who work in the medical field, there are simply not enough. No gadgets that us wish really existed to help save lives. No strange alien beings with odd appendages to tantalize our imaginations. However, there are some fantastic and wild cats on the surface that seem to choose one or two humanoids to adopt, Cherijo being one of them. The book is worth your time to read, but far from the best in the StarDoc series. ***

    Star Doc-yes..Rebel Ice-No

    This book is so filled with names and words of jumbled consonants that the mind wanders...as does the story. It is too totally different to be appreciated by this reader.

    What was Viehl doing while trying to write this book?

    I was so excited to get this book because the rest of the series I really enjoyed. It is really confusing about who's who and what's what, especially if you havn't read the others. My suggestion, read the series up to this, read the back of Rebel ice, and then go from there.

    Horribly Disappointing

    I aggree with 'loonigrrl' except I didn't even enjoy the beginning or middle. From the first page I was wondering, 'What the hell is this? Did I pick up the wrong book?' The changing POVs make the novel a mess and the main character that was so vital in the first novels didn't even make the book worth while because - she wasn't really in it.

    I like it

    I thought it was captivating to the very end like her other star doc books, a bit confusing in the middle, but you still love the charactors.

    What Was She Thinking???

    I've really enjoyed this series. The last couple haven't been perfect, but still, pretty good. I even took the time to re- read the first four before starting this one. Up until the last twenty pages or so I was prepared to give Rebel Ice 4 Stars because it was a fun fast paced, if somewhat different, book. Unlike the others in the Stardoc series, this one is not first person. Instead the viewpoint switches among many characters. I realize now after finishing it, that Rebel Ice (at least all but the last 20 pages) was enjoyable as an independent story. It actually didn't really feel like a Stardoc novel at all, it just had the same character names. As a Stardoc novel, it's a huge disappointment. Because of the amnesia, the character 'Cherijo' is never in this novel- so how enjoyable can a new book in the series be without the main character? What I found out: not very. I was so upset, I threw my book against the wall when I finished it. The twist ending felt cheap and the ending left me feeling so, well, betrayed, that I am not even slightly tempted into buying the next one. I honestly can't recall the last time I despised an ending so much. Save yourself some money and check it out from the library.

    terrific outer space science fiction

    It has been over two years since Dr. Cherijo Torin¿s ship crashed on the Ice planet of Akkabarr. Because she was bioengineered to be near indestructible she survived but she has no memories of who she is or where she came from. The Iislegs live on the surface of the planet slaves to the Windlords who live in habitats orbiting the planet. The surface dwellers are dependant on their masters for food, shelter, and medicine and in return the Iislegs give them their women and whatever else they desire. of women and the skin of outsiders and other desires. --- Duncan Reever, Cherijo¿s husband, has not given up hope that his wife is alive. Using the identity of a League member, he is allowed to travel to the surface of the planet. It is never a good time to be on Akkabarr but it is even worse now. Led by Teulon, a Joren whose clan was destroyed in the incident that forced Cherijo to land on the ice planet, a rebellion is brewing. Duncan is hindered in his search for his wife by people who don¿t want him to find her but he is determined. Although he doesn¿t realize it, it doesn¿t appear there will be a happily ever after for them even if he succeeds in his quest. --- The latest Stardoc novel is full of action and political intrigue but the heart of the story lies with the characters who live in a cold world in every sense of the world and have a culture much different than that of earth. The societies of the Iislegs and the Windlords seem very realistic almost as if the author visited that world and decided to write about it. S.L. Viehl keeps her series fresh by always putting her protagonists in new realms. REBEL ICE is a terrific outer space science fiction novel. --- Harriet Klausner
