Audiobook Review: The Choosing by Lucy Varna

Audiobook Review: The Choosing by Lucy Varna

Ziri Mokuru has lived her entire life in the rural village of Arden Hollow on the planet Tersi. While her parents are off having adventures and being Very Important People, she’s struggled simply to find a place where she belongs. One night, she investigates a disturbance in her home and discovers an armor-clad man sorting through her belongings. Her first thought is for her parents’ safety, not to question why this man is in her home late at night without even the courtesy of knocking. After all, no one among the trusting Tersii breaks into someone else’s home without a good reason.

Ryn abid Alna has an excellent reason for sneaking into Ziri’s home. After years spent scraping together enough vud for the bride price, he’s finally ready to steal a wife. One look at Ziri’s sweet smile and Ryn decides no other woman will do. She can fix anything she touches, so why not the loneliness he’s lived with since he was enslaved as a young boy?

Though Ziri longs for love, she’s not so sure she’s ready to settle down with the man who kidnapped her, especially after he jumps her into a nest of Sweepers, a sinister alien race bent on mayhem and destruction. As the day draws near when she faces Ryn’s family on the Choosing field, Ziri ponders the hardest decision of her life: Fight for Ryn and the place he’s made for her in his heart or choose another man as a life mate and risk never knowing love.

My Review:
Title: The Choosing
Author: Lucy Varna
Format: Audio
Narrator: Angel Clark, Matthew Josdal
Genre: SciFi Alien Romance, military, forced proximity, enemies to lovers
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Book one of The Pruxnae (or Book 2 depending on where you look)
POV: Ziri, Bryn

The Pruxnae are an alien race whose females are massively outnumbered by the males so they steal their potential brides. I like how Lucy Varna builds both the tension and the love between the characters. I like how Ziri is stronger than she seems and give Ryn a run for the money, not making it easy on him. I liked finding out what The Choosing entailed and seeing more of Alna and Gared from Thief of Hearts. I look forward to seeing what lies ahead for the Pruxnae.

I received this audiobook for free from StoryOrigin. This is my honest and voluntary review.
