As an avid reader of science fiction novels, this one was quite fantastical and great to read from a technological stand point. The idea of the earth being occupied by such omnipotent beings was a surprising and nice concept. The author did a good job of reading the overall story. However, her tone in portions of the story that to me needed emotion was lackluster at best and emotionally devoid at worst. Now, the worst part of the story by far was the whiny female lead. She's a college student at NYU but was portrayed as extremely naïve and ignorant to basic life concepts. Her thought process was severely stunted to the point of annoyance and frustration. It was so frustrating to listen to her constant crying fits. She came off as very weak and infantile, characteristics that I hate in female leads. The male lead however was quite the opposite. Intelligent, sexy, powerful, caring, and very long lived. I want to read the other stories just to be introduced to more of the fantastical world of the Krinar. I can't wait to read about the new technology that will surly be introduced in the other stories. Overall I think that this is worth a credit if you can deal with the heroin of the story being so weak. I hope this review was helpful.
Great love story.
Only the rich have the option to eat the food that is denied to the masses. This is what would happen if the government got complete control. They would have the very things denied to us, or at least the rich elite would. In this particular story it was a certain kind of food source the Krinar could afford that most humans could not. If the author was trying to make a statement about animal food sources and its effect upon the environment, she did, but she also proved what would happen if the govt. stepped in to stop the access to animal food sources. We would starve while the elite would feast with cute little 20 year girls.
Liked them all.
Too long for that.
Interesting story idea.
I was interested in trying a new setting and author and was disappointed in the narration of this book.
Definitely a new narrator/actor: performance was entirely robotic and the cadence was flawed to the point of losing complete interest in the story.
Angry that I wasted a credit on such a poor performance, disappointed and surprised that it made it to audio publishing.
same old same old... 50 shades of alien. it was a good concept I wish there was a bit more to the story line that didn't seem so cheesy at times and so much like other stories at the same time. good read but not one id likely reread like I do so many others.
The title was not the basic, generalized concept that you are use to. It was diverse, informative and imaginative. So much so that it is as if you are actually there. It was not just diluted sex, but two entities falling in love and testing that love. The action provided in between and the storyline had me captivated, so much so that the title was completed within a few hours.
Emily and Korum.
Though I believe she was too much of a submissive, she never truly did put up much of a fight where Korum was concerned. Korum for his passion to forgive and his brilliance
I cried and yes, I laughed as well, got a few people looking at me like I was crazy. But how Could I not ? When I was reading something this beautiful.
Although Korum got on my last nerves with his autocratic behavior toward the shy and innocent Mia, I really found myself enjoying the banter between a naive 21 year old and the alien who was thousands of years old.
Near the end of the book when Mia realizes she is falling for Korum and is still not willing or interested in being his pampered sex toy. She makes some stupid mistakes in handling a "man" who clearly had vast years of experiences behind him to think she could pull the wool over his eyes.
Korum was an arrogant, arbitrary and capricious man/alien, but he's swag so I can't wait to read the next book. He also outlined some concepts regarding Earthling behavior that was nothing but true.
Korum gives Mia a choice that could win her freedom from him, her actions were not unexpected.
A great start to a really engaging series, Anna Zaires is talented and smart for collaborating with good editors and her husband on the details of the book.
Wow, so I've been expanding my normal romance genre and glad I did. This is a really great listen. Very much worth a credit. Our handsome K you want to hate because of his dominant attitude (but that's also kinda what I like) he's persistent in his pursuit of Mia she doesn't want him. Because he is a K and her feelings get jumbled because in the beginning all she wants is to run away but hey sometimes curiosity can pull you in. The plot thickens when she's approached by the human resistance and asked to spy on him. Will she or won't she? It's a roller coaster ride of emotions a lot of hot yumminess and I can't wait for the next one.
Any book that has a strong female character that is both snarky and funny.
