Kríe Captivity by Kora Knight was delicious goodness. Absolutely kinkilicious and a great set up to a brand new series, The Nira Chronicles, I was captivated by Alec, his team, and the Kríe. (See what I did there? 😉 )
If this book is any indication, then this is going to be a spectacular series. Very different from Kora’s Upending Tad series (obviously, it’s sci-fi) but just as hot.
Seriously, this baby is hot, hot, hot.
I was a little apprehensive about the premise. It’s pretty much a variation of the sex-pollen trope that’s popular in fanfic. Because of the alien roofie angle, I was worried about the sex being dub/non-con.
It walks the line, but Kora handled things really well. I was comfortable with how things turned out but make no mistake: the human explorers were purposefully drugged by one of the Kríe so that they would have to have sex.
So just, be aware of that if you are sensitive to sexual situations that are of dubious consent.
Now, onto the juicy stuff.
Kora laid some decent groundwork for the rest of the series in terms of world-building. I can’t wait to learn more about the Kríe, specifically, and the planet Nira, in general. She’s really flexing her creativity muscles with this one and she set the bar high for the rest of the series.
The sex is very creative as well. 😉 The Kríe are extremely sexual and inventive in their escapades. While I was reading this, I couldn’t help but think that I’d love to crawl inside Kora’s head for a front row seat. Things must be very fun and sexy in there!
While most of the book focuses more on the budding relationships between the Kríe and humans than an overall plot, the end definitely sets the reader up for the next book–and beyond–in a big way. Meaning, there’s quite a cliffhanger. As I was getting towards the end, I started wondering if that would happen and I was right.
I’m not a fan of cliffhangers, but I didn’t feel robbed with this one. I felt like I reached the end of a really good pilot episode to a new television series. It got me excited for more!
Kríe Captivity features a large cast of interesting characters–human and Kríe–that have me breathlessly awaiting the next installment of the Nira Chronicles. Chocked full of kinky sex, old and new fans of Kora Knight won’t be disappointed in this book.
Copy provided in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Astrum Industries’ newest charted planet.
Freshly discovered. Wholly unexplored. But that won’t be the case for long.
Led by Captain Alec Hamlin, a team of explorers make an emergency landing and are soon confronted by their first Niran native. A huge male Kríe packed with muscle, baring small, black horns and fangs. Fortunately, he’s friendly. Or so he lets them believe.
With the help of his pack, the Kríe takes Alec’s team captive, intending to sell them for profit. But these Nirans aren’t just shrewd, they’re arrogant and domineering. And most of all, extremely sexual. Which explains why, on their journey to peddle their new wares, they feed Alec’s team a powerful aphrodisiac. Nothing like some decadent entertainment on the side.
Soon the team finds themselves feverishly trying to resist the growing urge to mount their seductive captors. But as passion prevails and unexpected bonds form, so much more is suddenly at stake. With no time left, will a shift in Kríe perspective be enough to change the fate of Alec’s team?
Warning: Contains explicitly scorching gay sex with exotic and shamelessly kinky males of otherworldly descent.
