Publisher's Summary

They hunted her. They caught her. Now they will subdue her. 

The resistance sent them, but that's not really why these four battle-hardened Vakarrans are here. 

They came for me. To conquer me. To master me. To ravage me. To strip me bare, punish me for the slightest hint of defiance, and use my quivering virgin body in ways far beyond anything in even the very darkest of my dreams, until I've been utterly, completely, and shamefully subdued.

I vow never to beg for mercy, but I can't help wondering how long it will be until I beg for more. 

Publisher's Note: Subdued is a stand-alone novel which is the fourth book in the Vakarran Captives series. It includes spankings, sexual scenes, intense and humiliating punishments, and strong D/s themes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

Subdued by the Vakarran Warriors

This is the final book in the series and what a great series it was. I am sorry it has come to an end. The hot Vakarrans warriors caught the last sister and will subdue her. The warriors are totally alpha and share between themselves. They use her in every way possible and she enjoys it and will punish her at the drop of a hat. I am glad each book was not dependent on the others but it helped to understand the dynamics of each book if you read the previous ones in the series. These warriors are totally dominant. Sara Fields did a great job with these stories and I enjoy her writing style. I love sci-fi and reverse harem romance books.

Heather Firth had done an excellent job narrating throughout the series. It was nice to have the same person for each book. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A subdued read!

They hunted her...
They caught her...
Now they will subdue her...

A perfect blend of dark and steamy. Oh boy, did I not want this book to end. So wonderfully dark and brilliantly written.

Perfect narration. I really felt the emotions from the narrator - so fantastic!

Subdued

This is the story of the last Stryke sister finding her mates. Kaela’s sisters and the resistance have set four warriors to bring her to them and to keep her safe. When the men find Kaela, they are more than ready to make her theirs, but Kaela has other ideas. Will they make it safely to the resistance or will the enemy stop them before they even have a chance to bond?
Each of the sisters were strong on their own and became stronger with their men. Kaela is just as strong as her sisters but also, she seems just as naive about everything from life to sex. While being interesting these stories seem to be very similar and not too fresh as a series. I enjoyed the hot scenes between the warriors and Kaela but the fight between the resistance and the Vakarran army seems like just background noise. All the sex in this series is pretty much the same and it was hard to imagine virgins having hardcore BDSM which includes belt whippings in their first time and enjoying it immensely let alone able to take it from such large warriors. I know that this is fantasy but by Kaela’s book it soon becomes redundant. As the three younger sisters do their thing it seems that we completely forget the oldest until the last big showdown which makes no sense as it was stated that the men actually communicated with her warriors. I would have liked a bit more depth to the characters and story. Narrator Heather Firth continues to give these characters a voice and kept the narrative flowing nicely.

Good but all books in the series are similar

The first book in the series was my favorite. All the others were very similar to the first and all can be listened to as standalone books

Great ending to a Great series

This is the fourth book in the series and while you can read/listen to it as a stand-alone, reading/listening to the entire series lets you appreciate the story and characters so much better. As always the chemistry is through the roof with Kaela and her Vakarran mates. As always with this series there is plenty of action, suspense and drama that keep you drawn in. The narrator did a wonderful job with everything!

I think this book is a fair representation of a reverse harem, alien romance. Although, I was hoping for more. The story and conclusion was predictable. Narration was good.

I love this series!

Though my favorite books in this series are the 1st and the 3rd this one didn’t let me down! All the Strike sisters are force to be reckoned with not to mention the luckiest girls on the planet! Heather Firth’s narration of this series brings it all to life! #audiobookobsessionsreviewer

Fantastic

I love this one. The characters although extremely strong willed and independent are able to embrace the needs of the other characters kinks and submit only to find its what they needed. This is a hot well written series and story and i know I would be happy to read more

Scorching Sci-fi Erotica

Subdued is a fantastic addition to the Vakarran Captives series, but can be treated as a standalone. The book is about four super-hot alien warriors and their captors. The storyline is super steamy with BDSM elements and public humiliations. Sara Fields writes excellent scorching adult sci-fi romance, this series is no different. The book is well-plotted with engaging characters and very enjoyable.
Heather Firth's performance is ridiculously good. Her ability to modulate distinctive tones for the various characters, particularly males, is incredible. She is fast becoming my top favourite female narrator. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.
