This review is from: Close Liaisons (The Krinar Chronicles: Volume 1) (Kindle Edition)
The Krinar have arrived on earth, they have signed a treaty with earths governments to live side by side with humans. Mia is a 21 year old student studying-at university in New York, when she catches the eye of Korum a Krinar. Very quickly Korum insinuates his way into Mia's life. He makes it very plain to her exactly what he wants. Mia although attracted to Korum, the fact that he's an alien whom she knows little about scares her. As the days pass he dictates her movements even what she wears. Escape seems impossible.
While I liked this story and the concept, I thought it rather cliched that the author made the Krinar seem just like vampires, bloodsuckers! I personally thought that there was enough detail provided in how they came to earth and what their history was, that making them crave human blood seemed to rather over egg the pudding. My other problem was that I did not get Korum's attraction to Mia, she's a very inexperienced girl and very immature. Many times she's described as being like a child as well as looking like one. She's also extremely stupid. Korum is an alpha male, he likes his own way in everything. I spent the whole time reading this wondering if he could really be trusted. He's certainly a character with hidden depths. I liked all the detail that the authors provided re the Krinar I thought that was very cleverly thought out. Although not perfect. Overall this was okay, I shall read the next as I'm keen to see what happens next.
