Close Obsession (The Krinar Chronicles #2) by Anna Zaires

close obsession



Mia and Korum return in the second part of this trilogy. They arrive at Lenkarda, the K center in Costa Rica. A trial is started for the K’s who aided the Resistance members in the attacks from the first book. Korum is one of the members of the panel so he spends most of his time at the court watching. Mia is given a device so that she can watch the proceedings without actually having to be there as Korum wants to protect her from the others.

After a while Mia becomes home sick and wishes to visit her family. Korum sets up a mini vacation for them and they go to Florida. Her parents are beside themselves because their precious youngest daughter is with a K, something they had hoped to avoid. But Korum and the K technology prove themselves useful. He cures her fathers stress migraines. Once he meets her sister, he calls in a friend of his that has worked with pregnant women and her sister is pregnant. The K he brings in helps her sister feel better and in the matter of a few minutes she is feeling and looking better than what she had before meeting the new K.

Korum and Mia go to the beach which isn’t far from the home that Korum rents while they are on vacation. Mia was on her way back to the beach when she is assaulted by Leslie, a Resistance member. Mia surprises herself and knocks out Leslie and runs to find Korum on the beach. Mia assaults the K that is in a standoff with Korum and ultimately saves his life, even though she gets hurt in the process. Korum heals her wounds though. The K that assaulted Korum is de-atomized while Leslie is taken into custody by some of the K “police” squad.

Mia gets a job at the Lenkarda base working with one of Korum’s friends. She loves the work even though it is long hours. Korum puts an end to the long hours but still allows her to work their. She loves her job and everyone she works with. The person who she took over for has gone missing but later turns up and it surprises all of them what he got involved in.

Korum has an enemy who is really starting to like Mia even though he has never met her. From glimpses at his enemies thoughts, you can deduce that Korum is the apparent bad guy. The enemy is trying to save the human race and it appears that Korum is the one who wants to destroy them. As the book closes you get another glimpse at this enemies thoughts. Despite the events that happened when Korum and Mia were on vacation, he thought everything went well.

This is a good story. It is well written with few errors to be found in the pages. Anna Zaires has captured my attention from the first book. Something that pulls me to a book is their cover first and foremost. The covers for all three books in the Krinar Chronicles are close to the same but they are different. A recommended book for those that liked and read the first book.

Close Remembrance (The Krinar Chronicles #3) by Anna Zaires

close remembrance



This is the third and final book in the Krinar Chronicles Trilogy. Reviews for the first two books can be found in my previous posts.

Mia and Korum return in the final installment of the Krinar Chronicles. They are living in Lenkarda, the K center in Costa Rica. Mia has adjusted to the K life and technology well so Korum returns his home to the original state rather than the familiar state of his apartment in New York.

Korum’s enemy is revealed in the prologue of this book. It is someone that Korum as considered a friend for a very long time while Mia worked with him daily and he was her boss. Saret tested Korum from the beginning to see just how deep his love for Mia was. Saret learned a lot. Mia gets suspicious when she is in the lab one day and is read Saur’s notes he had logged in the computer. Saret walks in as she was leaving and things go bad.

Saret “kidnaps” Mia even though she never leaves the lab where she should have been anyways. Korum gets suspicious and reads some files on his “computer”. He ends up figuring out Saret’s plans to kill him. Korum sets Saret up while he uses a newly developed weapon to MELT the walls of the lab. Saret runs and gets away for a while. (He truly is a devil/genius in one.)

Korum finds Mia unconscious. Ellet, his fellow K, looks over Mia and informs Korum that there is evidence of memory erasure. She is right. When Mia wakes up at Korum’s house, she doesn’t remember who he is or anything that happened the last few months. They start over again and she eventually gets her memory back thanks to a K on Krina. Mia and her family travel to Krina to see the specialist and also because the Elders wish to talk to her. Korum and Mia petition for her family to become immortal like she is.

Korum decides to make Mia his wife along with his charl. This will make her even as his mate and give her standing in the Krinar society which means she will be respected more than a normal charl. Things go beautifully for them and get a couple GREAT wedding gifts at the reception. (You’ll have to read to find out what they are because I’m not telling!)

This is a good book. The only downfall is that there are several things with loose ends when the book is finished. Anna Zaires, the author, wrote a note at the back of that book that even though this is a trilogy, it may not end up being the end of their story! I really hope she writes more books to go with this as I want to know what happens in the end instead of being left with several cliffhangers.

The House of Cards (Addune #2) by Wendy Potocki


addune 2



I finished reading the first book and went straight into this one. The characters from the first book return (some only mentioned in named and play no actual role) as well as a bunch of new characters.

Miranda is slowly realizing what she has become and what has happened to her. She makes a new friend, Tatiana, who helps her to escape the evil place where she is trapped. Tatiana and Miranda become good friends after Tatiana realizes that what Miranda says is true and that she isn’t indulging in the drink. Miranda knows she is different than Peter and Rachel but doesn’t understand why she still cares and loves. She finds out later by a gypsy named Dagmar who helps to free her.

Reginald Charles and Victor Rodriguez (Tiffany’s father) form a sort of alliance to bring down the one responsible for Tiffany’s death. The police and media are blaming Miranda Perry but they think otherwise. Victor’s sons are smart and pick up on clues that the police like to ignore. Unfortunately, another member of the Rodriguez family is lost during this investigation.

This book is split between following several different characters: Miranda, Reginald Charles and his family/friends, Tiffany Rodriguez’s family, Peter Addune, Stroker and Rachel Abbott. Everyone except Tiffany’s family are key players from the first book.

Overall, I say this is a good book. Like the first book, it doesn’t seem like there are that many pages. You just read from page to page. It’s not like some of the books that you are excited for the ending to be in site. The only bad thing I can say is that the author leaves it in a cliff hanger.

The third and final installment of this trilogy isn’t set to release until September.
