Now she is forced to work for Alien Affairs and she has her first mission. It leads her to Madrea, a planet that prohibits the Federation. There she encounters Commander Reynard du'Marr of the King's army. This story is really a stand-alone but there are appearances of characters from the previous book, Close Encounters. Strong characters and a good story made this an excellent read for me. Oct 06, Shra rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Recommended to Shra by: I think she needs to put on some clothes and get assassinated like yesterday.
That bird, Periwinkle, Echo should just abandon her now, 'cuz you just know that she's going to end up getting attached to it and be like 'I don't know how I would get by without Peri' guh, stupid. As far as the ship, Lillith, IT should be cubed immediately. As far as I'm concerned the book should have opened on the 'primitive' world after she's been there for at least three months, there should be a ship in a really far orbit monitoring her, not closely, just waiting for occasional reports, and there shouldn't be any of this "psi" garbage.
Telepath's suck, right now I really hate this book. Okay, this is just stupid. Get rid of the crystals nonsense, and the commander should be violently opposed to interaction with other planets, just like everyone else on this world. If anyone from this world wants technology they should just go to the one landing site that there should be and get on the one ship that should come once a year and move to a different planet. There is nothing wrong with having an old fashioned planet. In fact, in a future world of this kind there should be more of them.
This book should have been: Then she discovers that because she went rogue the politicians back home have thrown in with the other side of the war in an attempt to assassinate her specifically, along with their larger goals, which are nothing good think real history China -so the spy has to get back to the commander and fast to tell him the truth, all the while being chased by those sent to kill her, the commander and spy team up to kill them and then she explains what they found and it's one step closer to winning the war. THAT is how this book should have been written.
The way it is is just unpleasant. Well, I have a lot more I want to say, but I have probably said enough, so I'm just going with this; I've finished reading the book, and I really don't like it, however, there are so many books that are being written these days that I dislike that this is nowhere near the worst I've read, I wish I could put this in my ten most disliked books but it's more like at the bottom of the sixty or seventy books I hate the most.
Jun 10, Angela James rated it liked it Shelves: I decided to re-read Close Encounters. I read Close Encounters last year when it released and thoroughly enjoyed it. Close Encounters is r I decided to re-read Close Encounters. Close Encounters is recommended. I found this heroine also the focus of the book less easy to warm up to and not as likeable. In fact, I found her a bit silly.
Because of that silliness, there were areas of the book that felt overdramatic to me, and I never bought into the romantic relationship as much as I did in the first book. View all 5 comments. Nov 29, Michelle rated it it was ok Shelves: Echo is a genetically engineered person GEP who works for the diplomatic corps. Not only does she not know what her supposed psychic abilities are, but she has to figure out how to use them so that she can recover a psychic crystalline life form. Things get complicated when the attractive commande Echo is a genetically engineered person GEP who works for the diplomatic corps.
Now she still has to save the world, but she should try to avoid falling in love too. I felt like the first book in this series managed to do that. There was a lot more focus on the romance. The plot never really felt urgent or dangerous and it all wraps up so neat and tidy. Echo was a little too shallow and whiny to be an enjoyable character. Some of her commentary is amusing, but it's not enough to save this story. Feb 09, Carolyn F.
Book 2 was as good as Close Encounters.
Close Contact - An Alien Affairs Novel Book 2
At first I thought the heroine Echo would be too prissy to like but she ended up being a great character. And I just loved her relationship with Reynaud was a great character. Living on a slightly morally repressive world where being caught alone with a woman is considered an engagement announcement, the way he handled Echo was great. I'm hoping there are more books in the series or the author has written other books. I would recommend it. The pink I-do-not-wannabe-an-agent GEP Echo Adams was the leading character in this alien adventure, which wasn't so much alien by the way if you don't count the mess history of the alien intelligence crystals.
Planet Madrea was inhabited by immigrants of Old Earth many "cycles" ago, insisting to avoid technology. Echo was after the stolen Daughter crystal and the story goes around this wrap trying to be funny but not managing well. Jan 29, Lisa rated it did not like it.

This one was published in and there hasn't been another since and to me, that is a tragedy as I enjoyed these immensely and want to read more. Mar 04, Joyce rated it it was amazing. Much more humor in this one than first. Jun 26, Breane Ross rated it it was amazing. Love this futuristic book! Love the heroine and the aliens. Sure wish there were more in this series. Aug 15, Mandapanda rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the second installment in Katherine Allred's Alien Affairs series. I haven't read the first book however Close Contact reads perfectly as a stand-alone.
This is the story of Echo, a genetically modified person who has been fired from her job as party planner for the Department of Protocol and forced to work for the Bureau of Alien Affairs as a secret agent. This change in her circumstances is directly related to events caused by the heroine of the previous novel.
Echo is a hilarious character.
Close Contact - Katherine Allred - E-book
She is vain, shallow and hates Kiera Smith the previous heroine with a passion. Her conversation is witty and caustic. I especially loved her clothes obsession! Echo is sent to recover a powerful sentient artifact from a planet where technology has been outlawed. There she meets and falls for the commander of the army, Reynard. Reynard is a classic hero and a complementary if slightly bland foil to Echo's high-spiritedness.
There is a veritable feast of secondary characters in this story most of them interesting but I never lost track of who was who. The plot moved along at a brisk pace and held my interest throughout. I felt Echo's personality paled a little toward the end. I preferred her at her snarky best.
The romance was ok but I like a bit more angst and passion. This couple accepted each other from the outset. I also prefer more technology with my SFR and the setting of a medieval type city didn't appeal to me as much. Otherwise this was a great story and I would recommend it to other fans of Scifi or fantasy romance. Sep 26, Jacqueline rated it really liked it Shelves: I really liked this one. There wasn't so much female shamanish stuff as in the last one which spoiled that one a bit for me. This one was entertaining.
This book got me from the start. After reading the first book, I went right into the next. Allred was able to combine information from the first to the second was seamless. The strong women that is portrayed seem well suited to to the job. Giving them insecurities about what might have been done to them only made it more exciting to real.
To see two strong women with different talents come together and work for the greater good was wonderful. If we ever get to space I hope we can cope half as well and the characters in these pages. An Alien Affairs Novel: Will include dust jacket if it originally came with one. Text will be unmarked and pages crisp. Satisfaction is guaranteed with every order.
This terrific futuristic tale of a party girl-turned-intergalactic secret agent with extraordinary abilities seamlessly combines exotic locations, never-before-seen alien species, diplomatic relations, a sexy hero, and a romance that is almost too good to be true. GEPs just want to have fun. A Genetically Engineered Person and self-proclaimed "party girl," Echo Adams loves her diplomatic job entertaining alien bigwigs for the Galactic Federation. But the Bureau of Alien Affairs has discovered she's much more than she thinks--that a rogue scientist endowed her with skills and psi abilities dwarfing those of common GEPs.
And suddenly Echo's luxury life is over, replaced with a far more dangerous one:
