I listen to my books while working, and I work alot!, love Detective, Dystopian, Science fiction, Fantasy, U/F, PNR and Steam Punk.
A civil invasion, a 2000 year old alien, subterfuge, in a precarious situation, college student Mia finds herself torn between the resistance and a very powerful lover who pulls her into a world where there is no escape.I was kind of creeped out by the total roughshod approach of this K. The moral and personal dilemma Mia finds herself is in what drew me in. A definite favourite of what I have read so far this year, very pleased that Anne Zaire put pen to paper... loved the dark twisted under currents, the clever nano technology, world and premise and of course the very freaky tense relationship.... a must read for those who like tense, erotic, psychological thriller/science fiction.
Ellie goes in undercover to Mercantile Industries to uncover the atrocities of humans who have been spliced with animal DNA, for example in Fury's case canine, the subjects literally being treated like animals in a testing laboratory.
Even in her precarious position she has always been attracted to Fury admiring his quiet defiance from afar and to save his life and hers Ellie has no choice but to abandon him to punishments of her making. Fury feels well fury where Ellie is concerned and vows the next time he sees her he will kill her.
If you like Lora Leighs Breed series then you will like this, but no way is it a carbon copy of Leighs work, it is told in a completely different way. If you like your PNR, erotic, passionate, funny, at times edge of seat with an amorous male lead and a practical strong willed female go for it.
Ali Ahns brings all the characters to life, how she did all those different male voices I don't know, but I was able to tell the difference between all the characters.
I couldn't help but revisit Fury's story this time by audio and glad I did, a guilty pleasure that didn't disappoint, glad I indulged.
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...
