We belong to the king - those of us with the black roses tattooed on our left wrist, directly over our pulse. As if every beat of our hearts reminds us that we are not our own. All the women with the fire burning within them are culled, tattooed, and taken to the warriors to provide more energy. Energy that the warriors will then use to defeat the barbarians from the ocean of sand. Women with black roses on their wrists are emptied of their power by those warriors, who care not that they die a shrunken husk.

I’m so glad I gave this audio a chance! I absolutely loved it and can’t wait for the second audio book to come out. The narrator has a really nice and clear voice so I was able to understand everything she said. I thoroughly enjoyed how the author wrote about the main character she was strong, likeable and you could really sympathy with her.

What disappointed you about Alien's Bride Box Set?

The book has such potential! Unfortunetly about mid way she just kinda rolled over and accepted that she's now a Slave. She gave up to the point where she was asking herself if she was good enough for him.

Would you recommend Alien's Bride Box Set to your friends? Why or why not?

No I wouldn't.... they would find it as frustrating as I do

Where does Sweep in Peace rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I defiantly loved this book! I would say it's not as high as new species series but it's certainly middle/high area

Who was your favorite character and why?

Main character

What didn’t you like about Renee Raudman’s performance?

Her voice!! I can not express myself how much I hated her voice!! The female character in the book is young. But unfortunately they gave her an annoyingly old grandma voice!!! It's that type of voice that really grates at you and athough the book is certainly worth reading the voice ruined for me. I didn't consider stoping half way but pushed on instead.

Any additional comments?

Next I think I might just read the book rather than listening to Rennes voice

Karen was a disgrace to her pack. Every steadfast rule that her pack held dear, she insisted on breaking in an attempt to free herself from the bonds of a lineage that had been slowly dying out for centuries. Her brother, the alpha of the Needham pack, was having none of that, though.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story line was good and I would of enjoyed it but unfortunately the narrator was speaking so fast. I was struggling to understand what she was saying. if it wasnt for the feeling of the whole thing being rushed! I would of given 3/4 stars

If you’ve listened to books by K Matthew before, how does this one compare?

This is the first one I've read, but I have been a little put of reading any more of k Matthew.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Sierra Kline?

Anne Johnstonbrown I love her voice! Very easy to listen to and she's very clear with her words.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story line was an easy going book. Something you could listen to while doing something else e.g cleaning
