"If you're looking for some sexy summer reads, you'll want to check out the new book series, Krinar Chronicles. Author Anna Zaires brings you a kind of 50 Shades of Grey meets Star Trek tale . . ." (Marie Claire)
"For diehard fans of the paranormal romance genre, author Anna Zaires's risqué new book could be your next guilty pleasure. Zaires's most recent read, Close Liaisons, combines a love story with science fiction in the tale of Mia, an unassuming college student whose life gets suddenly entangled in a dangerous, otherworldly affair." (Woman's Day)
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Ok, let me start by saying the reason I absolutely love this book and the previous book is the fantasy aspect. The alien vampire technology is a dream come true. Now if you don't enjoy the fanciful stuff your not going to be happy with this book. I love the fanciful world this book took me to. It was a very advanced world that I enjoyed due to the great imagination of AZ. I think that AZ is a extremely talented author and I do like her style. Also the sexual content is intense. That's always a plus.
Now I must address the narration. It's just BAD. You cannot tell the male voice from the female .All the characters blend together. This is a very good book and it would be so much better with a good narrator. Please change narration for the next book!!
This is not a stand alone book. Get book 1 before this one. If your a ScFy fan and you like allot of romance thrown in with it, then this series is for you. There are narration issues but maybe Book 3 will be better. I'm sure you can tell from my comments it's a YES!! This book is worth that credit.
I like sexy erotica with a good storyline. Fantasy or sci-fi or just something that captures my attention right away.
See my full review under the first book in the series: Close Liaisons: The Krinar Chronicles, Volume 1. This is my favorite author of all time! Her story telling never disappoints! You cannot stop with just the first book. I am so anticipating her new stuff that's to come out soon! I cannot give this series a high enough recommendation!
I liked over all it was different from your passion love story. Still was Hot and Heated but different too =).
As stated I loved these two books, I was looking for something new and Unique. I love horror and Mystery but found this book and loved it. Thanks for a Brilliant Unique Love Story
Loved it! The aliens technology is simply amazing and I really enjoyed seeing how they live in their colony. Zaires imagination is amazing. I also really liked how the relationship with Korum & Mia is developing. We get to see a different side to Korum and I love him all the better for it. I don't know if I fully trust him, but that just makes it even more interesting. Mia seems more mature than she was in the first book, and I could actually feel them growing closer together in this book. Their relationship is beyond hot, very sexual, and I can't wait to see what happens in book 3. There is a danger looming and I am very curious to see who this mysterious K is.
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.
listen to every details in the story and I love everything the Author was doing and It is amazing I love listening to audio books close obsession
that Kourm was giving Mira's dad and sister medicine to make Them feel better the dad And her sister baby
Saret love him and I love every one too
yes . I will be listening to it again.
Just listen to the audio and read Anna Zaire books ;) They are Awesome
Book Two of the Krinar Chronicles does not disappoint! The story picks up right where Close Liaisons ends. Korum and Mia spend some time in the Krinar colony in Costa Rica, which allows the author to continue with her fascinating world building. In Close Liaisons, Mia mentions going to visit her parents; this visit happens in CO, with Korum accompanying her to meet her family. I really liked this part, it was interesting to see her family's reaction to the 'man' in Mia's life. The best part of the book, though, in my opinion, is the character development of Korum. I thought he was such a jerk in book one, and we learn a lot more about him in this installment which explains some of that. There is a villain in this book as well, which adds some elements of danger and suspense. The sexy scenes are steamy and well written as always - definitely not suitable for anyone under 18!
Now, on to the narration. Although this actress is an improvement over the narrator of the first book, this performance still isn't great. She does well with the dialogue for the female characters, hitting all the right notes and inflections, but is terrible with any male dialogue. She is especially deficient when conveying anger or sarcasm in the male voice. It just isn't there in her tone and takes away from the story. And - minor quibble - she pronounces a particular part of the female anatomy in an unusual way. Unusual to me, anyway, and it struck me as funny every time she did it.
Overall, this is a great book, and narration issues aside, I highly recommend it.
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!!
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.
"Sci-fi romantic delight..."
This is book two in the series continues right where it left off in 'Close Liaisons', after the disastrous events Mia is feeling off balance confused and not quite sure how she is going to cope being in a Krinar settlement. Korum is still as overbearing, dominant brooking no arguments and making all of the decisions. with the court case, her new surroundings, he demands ALL of her .
The strength of this series is the world depicted, the very clever technology and the still growing very freaky relationship between Korum and Mia.
I still had not made up my mind about Korum but you do see a vulnerable side despite his heavy handed, oppressive approach, which very nicely builds to a culminating tension fit to explode.
Wonderful sci/fi erotic escapism..
I must admit though I prefer Kathleen Godwins narration, as I thought in the first book she gave an eerie voice to Korum that translated his character wonderfully, - saying this Kitty Hendrix narrates well.
Looking forward to the next in the series...
