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.
In the king's library, The Book of the Rose says to honor the tattooed women. More than anything, I want to spit on its pages.
As for running - there is one thing worse than having a black rose on your wrist. That is for the enemy to find you and see the black rose on your wrist. Your death will be slow and excruciating at their hands...

This was a very interesting audio to me. The storyline was different and the heroine was smart, sassy, and competent which I loved. They were lots of twists and turns, danger, and love. I do wish the second book was out already. I would definitely recommend this audio, it is worth the price of admission for the unique storyline alone. There narrator did a decent job, it was not offputting or distracting from the story. However it was definitely the story that kept me engaged.

Loved It! Where is Book 2?!!
I love power girl type stories. Sure they might be terribly unrealistic, but in The Rose Mark, all of the main characters are likeable, and the villains are unlikeable. I love the story, I love the characters, and I can hardly wait for book 2 to come out in Audible! Please hurry.
