More About This Book

Overview

Book 8 in the New Species series. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but it is advisable to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.

Dr. Allison Baker is obsessed with saving the comatose New Species male. She has tried everything and there's only one option left. Alli will break every rule and put her life in danger by tempting 880 to wake, using only her feminine scent and touch. She just has to kidnap him and crawl into bed with him to make it work.

880 wakes in a different world with a small female who's been sleeping beside him, caressing him and wrapping her sweet body around his, teasing his senses. He lies silent and still, listening and evaluating each arousing touch, fighting his body's reaction. Hatred flares when he discovers she's human, but Mercile stole everything from him so he decides it's fair to take her in return.

But things quickly change and he wants her at his side and in his bed. 880 has chosen a new name-Obsidian-the personification of dark and dangerous. He'll fight them all to keep her and no one will stand in his way of taking a new mate as well.

    A Different Twist on a New Species Story. I have enjoyed all

    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..

    After having been a faithful reader of all the New Species books

    After having been a faithful reader of all the New Species books, I have to say, this book wasn't worth the $6 I paid for it. There was almost no mention of the couples from the prior books - which is something I was hoping to have at least a little of in this book. And ultimately, there was no build up, the guy was crude and hard to find even remotely attractive, and there was no conflict...at all. Overall, I have to say, I was disappointed in this installment of the New Species series.

    This was a great read and Laurann Dohner has got me hooked! From the beginning to the end you fall head over heels in love with *880* (Obsidian). He's in a coma and Dr. Allison Baker is very concerned, obsessed as to why he hasn't woken up after his body has already healed. Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery that is *880* she makes a plan and kidnaps him from Homeland after Justice North and Tiger have denied her permission to "Scent" her to try and wake him. But when Obsidian does the tables of obsession turn. He's K9, aggressive, grieving, and he hates humans.

    Laurann pairs two lead characters who have lost and are needing. No capture and release for the female heroine was a plus, the story wasn't in need of that it flowed well without it.

    It was very hard to have to put the book down once I started. New Species is an excellent series!

    A FANTASTIC READ

    Laurann Dohner did it again! Every book gets better and better and i look forward to each and every word. 880 is primal and will leave you both exasperated and feeling hot all over! What a great read! I cant wait for MUCH more in this lovely series!

    Unfortunately lacking...

    I just started reading the new species series last week. This particular book was one of the last ones i read. I have to say that i was pretty disappointed in both obsidian and allison. It just seemed that halfway through the book they lost a lot of character. They just let everyone run right over them the closer the story got to the ending. It was almost as if the author just gave up on the book three fourths of the way through. I mean, come on, they are just leaving physical cages only to be forced into mental and emotional ones enforced by their own people. Not only did this book lower my opinion of obsidian, it also lowered my opinion of some of the main players (such as justice and fury) due to being so easily manipulated by humans and willing to cause such emotional pain to one of their own people.

    Caveman Hot!!!!!!! I don't know about anyone else but Obsidian is one of my favorites. His blunt behavior and Alli's accommodating ways make for good, hot, fun reading. I even felt bad for her towards the end when she thought she wasn't needed anymore. Loved, loved,loved, this book.

    Really good read

    I have all of the Species books and my favorite is Valent. This book didn't quite follow the usual theme (Mercile trying to get and test Species) and that's not a bad thing. I just wasn't as pleased with this story. I love all of the books and you should give them a try and discover how different Species can be!
    Enjoy! :)

    I loved the first seven books and was really looking forward to number 8. This one just didn't do it for me. Obsidian wasn't a very interesting character and I never felt the connection with Alli. I guess an author can't score high on all their books.

    Better the second time

    I hated this book the first time I read it, but decided to try again. Rereading it was more enjoyable, but still my least favorite of the series. I still feel that Dr. Allison is a weak female character and Obsidian is too one dimensional (sex, sex,sex). I can't wait till the next book to see who finds love next time and hope the characters are more interesting.
