A Different Twist on a New Species Story. I have enjoyed all of the
New Species books, especially Valiant and Fury. But it seemed like all
of them had the same basic storyline; they meet, they are attracted to
each other, had sex, the human female gets kidnapped or pregnant, they
end up as mates. This story is different. Mercile doesn't make an
appearance at all, no human female kidnapping, no pregnancy. I liked
it. Alli becomes obsessed with Obsidian while he's in a coma and she
is his doctor. Nothing they do can get him to wake up, so Alli wants
to try something different. She thinks getting Obsidian to bond with a
female via scent will give him a reason to want to wake up. When
Justice and Tiger both reject her plan, she takes matters into her own
hands and kidnaps Obsidian from Reservation. Her plan works, he wakes
up, but Alli is in major trouble with the NSO for kidnapping him. I
liked the different type of storyline, and there is a lot of appearances
of characters from previous books. I especially loved seeing Breeze
again. I hope she gets her own story soon. There are more primate
species in this book than in others. I'm hoping that means that we
will have a story about a primate species from Laurann in the near
future. The only thing I didn't like is it seemed to end abruptly.
Alli and Obsidian got together, but Alli's future and status in the NSO
was never resolved. But overall, a good addition to the series.

Blah

Really love this author but wish a plot could have been sandwiched in between sex scenes. Boring, slow and didnt care about these one dimensional characters at all. Was this written by someone else because it completely lacked romance..

    Not nearly as good as the others

    This is my least favorite book of the series. There was little mention of the other characters and it was difficult to like or feel any empathy for these two main characters. In fact, for most of the book I actively disliked them both. I missed the humor and the plot development that was evident in the other books. Much of this seemed to be a string of violent sexual encounters strung together. Hope the next one is better.
