I found her narration to be a good listen
I'm starting to enjoy the series more and more as we learn about Mia, Korum their growing relationship and different facts about the Krinar, a series unlike anything else i've read before
A great follow up to book 1! The storyline is very well done and the plot has thickened. I haven't figured out who the bad guy is yet and that's not normal for me. Mia is getting a little smarter but she still has a ways to go. While we do learn some more about the Krinar there are still a lot of questions to be answered. I was also surprised by Mia's family, while Korum does win them over, it wasn't as hard as I thought it might be.
There are only 2 problems with this book, first I now have to wait for book 3 and Kitty Hendrix was not the right narrator for it. I hope they can get some one like Xe Sands or Sophie Eastlake for the next book. While Kitty does have a good voice, she does not make the switch back and forth between male and female voices. That is the only thing that is wrong with this book. I found I lost track sometimes of who was speaking because she uses the same voice for both parts.
But over all I am glad I spent the credit on it. If you liked book 1, you will like this one as well, if you over look the narrator.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
It's all been said before by my fellow Reviewers, so all I can add is the author's well described, very imaginative, mesmerising world has captured my heart, my imagination, my thoughts and my life and I don't think I'll get them back until the very end of book 3... which I'm eagerly about to listen to now.
Worth a credit? Well that's a daa HELL YEAH!! The only question left now is how will Korum and Mia finally get their HEA ending.
I don't know. I love the Krinar Chronicles.
Definitely Korum. He was much better developed in this book, we finally saw him show real emotion and I loved him all the more for it.
Never listened to her before. At first, preferred the prior narrator but then got used to the new narrator and loved the book.
Yes, couldn't stop listening to it.
Can't wait for book 3.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I am so glad I have this in book format...b/c the narration totally killed it. I thought book 1 narration was bad... NO WAY...this was just horrible in the narration department. The last book you can at least tell the diff between female and male voices a bit...This one... NOT AT ALL..
Kitty Hendrix really did should like Clarrissa Knightly... but it just can't be because Knightly is great and Hendrix bombed it... If Hendrix is another name for Knightly then I am really upset in her new narration... b/c this was just horrible...
The Krinar Chronicles are great books... if narrated properly, these books would be an instant downland... I am not a Alien romance fan, but I do like the Krinar Chronicles...and that is saying a lot...
Not a recommendation..just get the book and read yourself.. Narration will piss you off!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I mush say i just loved the continued story of the The Krinar Chronicles and this book could of been a 4 Star if not for the terrible Narrator. She read so fast with no different voices between characters. Disappointing as i was so looking forward to this book. There is lot's of yummy Alien/Human Sex going on in this book plus we learn more about the world Korum comes from and there very different more advanced technology. I so love Fantasy World so if you can not handle the totally unrealistic best give this one a miss. I will grab the next in this series only if it has a much better Narrator.
Once again, Amazon reviews threw me off. It might be that some books come across better when they are read and not listened to. That might certainly be the case here b/c the narrator's voice didn't match what I would expect the voice of a young, undergrad student to be. The narrator, who is not bad at all, just sounded much too mature. Couple that with a female lead character who says she wants to make her own choices but then asks her boyfriend's permission to do everything, including going to a birthday party and taking an internship opportunity, and you have a bad setup. So the heroine didn't work for me either. She said one thing but did another. Also, their love match wasn't quite believable to me. Maybe if I had read the previous book, the one preceding this one, where I believe the two main characters met, then I'd believe their lifetime love match. The whole idea of aliens being the creators of humanity didn't work for me, especially since science has proven that Africa is the birthplace of humanity. Since the book aliens formed humans in their image, this was too farfetched even when I'm okay with, and even expect, to have to set aside reality. But that idea just pushed the edges of negative aspects of our society that worked against the book IMO. Finally, the sex scenes were plentiful but perfunctory in the way they were written and, therefore, read. So, this book was mediocre though not painful to finish. But it does not motivate me to pursue this author in the future.
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
If you would make a list of your favorite Alpha Males….let's say, Highlanders, MC bikers, Military Men, FBI agents, I dunno maybe Inked-out tough guys….well, just put Korum the powerful Krinar at the top of that list. This is the second installment in the series and I really loved it.
I loved seeing the growth in the relationship between Mia and Korum. Korum is hot, intelligent and so romantic and tender with Mia, but the big problem is that well, he has taken her away from her life to be with him…no questions asked. This is not negotiable and it absolutely showcases Korum's domineering, possessive and territorial side when it comes to Mia. Mia is compelled into this alien/human relationship, yes by force, but also through….dare I say it…love.
The aspects that fascinated me in this book was how the reader is immersed in this Krinar society and it just gets more interesting along the wayt! Mia is taken to live with Korum in Lenkarda (one of the K's largest settlements on earth). Mia settles in and is finding her way through exposure to domestic technology (OMG!! Where can I get one of those "intelligent" homes??), advanced research in her field, Krinar political structure, and she gets to know other humans who are in a similar alien/human relationship, as her own. (By the way, I loved the Krinar wedding they attended).
Mia really comes alive in this book. She is stronger and even though she falls in love with Korum, she is not afraid to speak her mind and does communicate her struggle in their relationship where Korum has all of the power. I also loved the softening of Korum. We learn more about his thoughts, motivations, background and his irrevocable, passionate love for Mia. The loves making scenes are plentiful and are more emotionally connected as compared to the sex scenes in the first book (which were super hot as well). I think this is reflective of how their romance is deepening and growing. Their sex life is definitely off-the-hook, out-of-this-world type of amazing.
There is a suspenseful conspiracy that pushes the plot forward and is another exciting component. What I have mentioned is only the tip of the iceberg, there are so many wonderful details in this book that will leave you sitting back enjoying every riveting moment.
Narrator: Kitty Hendrix was fine as a narrator. I have to say that I didn't pay much attention as I was simply too immersed in the story itself. That's a good thing!!
A better narrator
Gotten a different, more adult sounding, less robotic narrator.
There are many narrators, both male and female, that could have pulled this off much better; no not better, pulled it off period. Kitty Hendrix's voice was not only too childish but her inflections and expressions, in my opinion, were used at inappropriate times.
I have tried no less than five times to listen to this book, especially because many listeners sing praises of it eroticism, romance, suspense, etc. Just couldn't do it; KH's voice and exclamations were so childish and inappropriate and her narration so robotic that it was entirely impossible for me to get through.
I have reviewed many, many books because I have listened to literally hundreds over the years and my main complaint, always, is lack of good narrator. I can, like many other reviewers I read of, tolerate a mediocre book, even a drab one if the narrator is good.
Sorry AZ and DZ, your book may tick all my boxes but the audio publisher did you a great disservice.
