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

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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!

    Story
    "Romantic Story Ruined; Poor Narration & Production"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The production and narration was so poor, that the only thing that recommends the book was the continuity of the story.


    Would you recommend Close Obsession to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would recommend the book, and the series.


    What didn’t you like about Kitty Hendrix’s performance?

    Narration pace was too fast. I kept checking that I had not accidentally selected 1.5 speed on the Audible app. The production did not allow enough pauses at the end of sentences and at the end of each chapter. Uncomfortable listening experience - like speeding things up to meet a pre-defined total running time (TRT). Awful.


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

    Yes, the book was hard to put down.


    Any additional comments?

    Series audio books should always have the same narrator. This series had a different narrator for each of the three books, which made it hard to concentrate on the story and follow which character was speaking, because of each narrator's different style.

    "couldnt get past the first 2 chapters"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    By not changing narrater - All this narrater does is read the book and when slight voice change is really bad


    Would you ever listen to anything by Anna Zaires and Dima Zales again?

    Depending on narrater


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kitty Hendrix?

    NO


    What character would you cut from Close Obsession?

    cant get through the book will have to read it


    Any additional comments?

    Narrator killed the book for me

    "Enjoy Story, narration poor"
    What did you love best about Close Obsession?

    I'm enjoying the story in general. It is a pleasant listen while doing your every day tasks.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator doesn't necessarily realize when she is speaking for a male voice. She sometimes makes the male voice sound so feminine that it is distracting enough to pull you out of the story

    "CAN'T GET PAST NARRATION"
    What would have made Close Obsession better?

    A better narrator


    What could Anna Zaires and Dima Zales have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Gotten a different, more adult sounding, less robotic narrator.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kitty Hendrix?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "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.
