I'm a PhD theatre student who loves not proofreading my reviews (sorry) because I have to do enough of that in school. :)

    (976)

    Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments, splicing human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such "experiment" captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him - even if he hates her for it. Fury has never known compassion or love. He's spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. He vows to end her life but when she's finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.

    Story

    I find myself at a loss for words... interesting.. yeah... and... hot, yes, but there's just something about the book that made me cringe. I like the idea of a government testing facility creating a New Species, and in a sense, this is kindof like a werewolf story. You get the whole MINE possession thing and the scenes are steamy, but with a weird mixture of melodrama that had me wincing a little. I mean, how many times do people burst in on this couple?

    I'm also curious about the world created. With all the vampire and werewolf stories out there you would think that the discovery of a testing facility that created big hulking animal-like people would fascinate people. Instead, we only get to see the protesters that are instant haters. Not that this wouldn't happen, but their desire to kill the New Species seems unfounded, considering that these are kids that were cruelly transformed and simply trying to live a new life. The threat seems generic and we don't get the whole picture.

    The narrator is a bit childish and some of the male's voices are strangely read. I suppose this is a spoiler but it gets worse in the second book. I suggest this story be read instead.
