“The near future, the Krinar rule the Earth. An advanced race from another galaxy, they are still a mystery to us – and we are completely at their mercy.
Shy and innocent, Mia Stalis is a college student in New York City who has led a very normal life. Like most people, she’s never had any interactions with the invaders – until one fateful day in the park changes everything. Having caught Korum’s eye, she must now contend with a powerful, dangerously seductive Krinar who wants to possess her and will stop at nothing to make her his own.” (via goodreads.com)
Zaires does an excellent job creating this alternate variation of earth ruled by alien overlords, who are responsible for human life on the planet.
The extensive details regarding the superior Krinar technology help immerse the reader in the constructed world, distinguishing the human and Krinar settlements on earth.
The evolution of Korum is excellent. In the first novel he is not a very likeable character, but by the third you really fall for him and his love for his paramour.
Mia is a shy naive woman, who at first coerced into a relationship with Korum. As the novels progress she grows, finding her place in Krinar society. While Korum is the dominate, Mia knows how to fight him for what she wants.
What starts out as an obsession for Korum quickly becomes a deep seeded love. Because of this, Korum defies societal norms and ignites the idea of human equality within Krinar society.
- The sex in this novel is hawt and frequent. Zaires knows how to write the dominant alpha male.
