What the Critics Say

"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)

    Story
    "Totally Krinal immersed."
    What did you love best about Close Obsession?

    Although I am not into cliffhanger books, this one of the best exception to the rule. This was part 2, and was grateful book 3 was available as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was impressed with the alien technology.


    Which character – as performed by Kitty Hendrix – was your favorite?

    All characters were great and interesting. No duds in this series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I wanted to listen to the whole series at one sitting, plus more.


    Any additional comments?

    Bring more Krinar books. Surely there are more words and future episode's to be shared.

    "The series keeps getting better"
    What does Kitty Hendrix bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I found her narration to be a good listen


    Any additional comments?

    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

    "Can't Wait for Book 3"

    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.

    "WELL I AM TRULY OBSESSED WITH THIS AWESOME SERIES"

    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.

    "Loved it!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Close Obsession to be better than the print version?

    I don't know. I love the Krinar Chronicles.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Kitty Hendrix’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never listened to her before. At first, preferred the prior narrator but then got used to the new narrator and loved the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, couldn't stop listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for book 3.

    "Narration killed it!"

    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!

    "Loved the Story - Not the Narration"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good continuation"

    I really like how the story is progressing. I like the plot twists. I don't however like this narrator they changed it from the first and she just didn't seem to express in my opinion what the characters were saying correctly. For example the words would be having the characters talking reluctantly yet her voice was almost excited sounding. I want to see who this mysterious K is so I'll get third book but I really hope they changed the narrator

    "Awesome Sci-fi Romance"

    The narrator was sometimes dull in my opinion, but it was dull a pleasure to hear Book 2 come to life. I hadn't read Book 2 when I started listening, but it was nice to be able to pull it up on my Kindle and have it right where I left off in Audible, and vice versa.
