Publisher's Summary

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.

Very well written book. Had my full attention throughout the journey. my only dislike had to be the lack of confidence and ensuing misunderstandings

The Choosing - slow not bad, but slow.

Would you try another book from Lucy Varna and/or Angel Clark and Matthew Josdal ?

Yeah I would, I loved her story line, however, it needed to pep it up some. I got half way through the book and stopped. I read 3 other books and then came back to this one. Again, I liked the story line, just that there were very slow spots.

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

I have not, this was my first story.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Interesting, I think the narrator was fine, but could have also been a little more peppy. Again, very seldom do I start a book and stop in the middle. I almost wasn't going to finish, but I came back and did. It was a good story, just slow.

Did The Choosing inspire you to do anything?

No, only to give it a rest - read 3 more exciting books with a faster pace.

Any additional comments?

I hate to give negative reviews. I really liked this story when I finally finished it. I did like the characters but the pace was just too slow. An author has to keep the reader's mind engaged. Again I loved the story. I don't want to be negative. So please Lucy Varna don't feel bad. Just speed up some of the story-line in the future.
