Narrated with flirtatious coyness by Vanessa Chambers, Wrath: New Species, Book 6 is the continued sexy saga concerning a genetically modified new species - warrior men who are half human, half animal, and 100% hunks.
When a proud and studly member of this new species, Wrath, meets Lauren, a fast-talking, quick-thinking woman whom danger always seems to find, things get suspenseful and very, very passionate indeed. The plot perhaps isn’t as important as the, ahem, richly described steamy details.
Wrath volunteers to live and work outside Homeland, where he'll once again be confined in a small space with other males. He was subjected to horrific abuse and conditioning and forced to view endless sex tapes of human females while chained to Mercile's perverted machines. Wrath knows he’s too dangerous and emotionally damaged to ever be with a female.
Lauren has just been detained by three big, buff, well-armed men - New Species. One of them really catches her eye. He's tall, sexy and... her new roommate, apparently. Having never met a man this spectacular, she decides to taste every inch of his amazing body. Wrath is definitely open to that plan. The sex is incredible and he gives her everything she needs - but he'll only go so far. Something is holding him back.
Lauren has to make him unleash his desire and Wrath has to get past his fear if the couple wants any chance at a future together.
Publisher’s Note: While each New Species book is a standalone, the greatest enjoyment will come from reading them in series order.

If it's not obvious from my other posts regarding the New Species series, I'm a HUGE fan! I've enjoyed each book, but, there's something about WRATH that tickled my fancy in just the right way! Each book has the same basic concept more or less, but, this one stands out to me because Wrath was so incredibly loveable and I just melted as he and Lauren's relationship developed. I'm also really looking forward to Shadow's book--I think its book 8 or 9--and yes, I've pre-ordered them all! As has been the norm in the Species books there was a healthy dose of humor and hotness, and these books can't be released fast enough for me. I'm totally consumed and loving every minute!
Say something about yourself!
Okay, things are getting better in the New Species world! I LOVE that we got to see Wrath again, he was a supporting character in Brawn and I was hoping he would reappear!
In this addition, Wrath really just wants to help his people, to save those that are still locked up like he was, and to make a difference. He joins the human task team with to others and runs into a slight glitch when they have to take a human hostage...a female human....yeah he didn't bargain for that female, but it was a fascinating story...although VERY implausible. So while I really liked the refreshing story line I only gave it 4 stars because I had to tell my brain it was fiction many times to get past the glaring "no freaking way would that ever happen" moments.
Still good though!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I adore the sexy New Species series. Wrath, the hero, is a unique blend of sexy, intense and innocent. The tenderness and love he has for Lauren is so sigh-worthy and Lauren’s honest and open reciprocation is lovely as well. Like other couples in the series, Wrath and Lauren have an emotionally and sexually intense romance that fans of erotic paranormal romance will adore as I did. I found it refreshing that Wrath and Lauren are so emotionally vulnerable to each other and that the author doesn't throw pointless tension into their romance to keep them separate. This is an exploration of how two distinct people become a couple and that’s why I read romance!
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
This book 6 in the New Species series does not let you down. Laurann does an excellent job of the uniqueness of each of her characters in each of her books. You would think the story would be redundant in each book, but it isn't. She gives you suspense, thriller, romance and sex, as usual. I find it difficult to stop listening to each of her books until I am finished. Then she gives us a peak at the first chapter of the next book, which hooks me every time. Love her books. I'm not tired of them yet and looking forward to the next one.
Yes, I have done that and would do it again, as I love this series and book.
None. It is, it's own book and I can't think of one that is like this one. Vanessa Chambers does a great job at deepening her voice or changing it for each and every character.
Changing her voice to match what the characters are saying and the emotions that she reads in.
When Wrath saves her from Vengeance at the beginning of the book.
Just Another Audiobook Addict! Love listening to all types of romances, but occasionally need a good Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or a book with humor!
Each New Species male characters are so different and likable; it's almost impossible to not fall in love with each of them. Wrath, who was newly freed works outside Homeland to help find, and rescue his people but he is still adapting to being free.
I loved the fact the female heroin in this story was smart. When Lauren was capture and locked away with other New Species, she cunningly tricks her one of captures to call the New Species headquarters, and provides a covert message that leads to their rescue. I also, loved she did not really suffer at the hands of her captures like some of the other females in the stories.
Each story is a five star, and I really love the time I spend reading them, they take me away to place that can be dark, but oh so sexy.
I really liked Wrath. I was glad to see that 919 has a name and a Mate. Her BFF, Amanda was a hoot. I hope she and Flame get a story of their own down the road. As always the narration was spot on. Very nice listening experience. Worth the time and worth the $$$.
Who doesn't enjoy being transported to another world, and traveling on an unforgettable adventure? Thank you audio books! Happy dance <3
I have been devouring book after book of this series. I may be addicted... So far my favorite has been Valiant. I was actually pretty excited about this one thanks to the previous book. Perhaps that made my disappointment about this book not being totally awesome, and just so-so, worse. Dohner is an amazing writer no doubt, but this did not feel on par with the other books in this series. The plot felt forced at times, and just off in others. I kind of felt like Wrath was all over the place character wise. He didn't feel like the same person from the last book, or even the same person from the beginning to the end of this book. Not in growth, but his personality was everywhere. The reasoning in the characters actions where also irrational to me to the point was actually thinking, "Why didn't they just do this....". It takes a lot for me to think that way, and to have my mind dropped from the story line.
Speaking of my mind dropping from the story line, we are on to the narrator. Chambers does a very good job in this series trying to make all the characters (and there are many) distinct through their voice. There are some of her voices I like more then others, but that's just my preference. In this story though I couldn't stand her voice for Wrath. Every time he spoke I was popped out of the story listening to a woman trying to give an awful impersonation of a girl trying to copy a deep mans voice. It was so bad at times it was funny, but I'd have to rewind to try to focus on what Wrath was saying. All other voices where fine.
All in all it was passable, and I would listen just to get to the next story. But I'm not likely to re-listen.
Her male character voices are just goofy. Wrath sounds like an idiot cartoon animal with a mouth full of cotton balls. The stories are great but the male voices are very distracting.
All her books in this series have very similar traits. The guys are carbon copies of each other but since this works , why change it. Not my favourite of stories & nothing really stands out but great to listen to when I'm running.
