Calling all paranormal romance lovers!!! This is a great new series featuring a brand new type of 'paranormal'. New Species are humans spliced with an..Show More »imals...could be cat, dog, who knows, but whatever the species, it made for a really good listen. There were some moments where the story dragged or was a little redundant--literally over-focusing on certain points way too long but once it got back on track and moved forward, things progressed well. The characters were sexy, fierce, and funny as they found their way to love and navigated their new environment amidst dire circumstances, such as trying to have uninterrupted sex! Trust me, that's one of the funniest, and somewhat frustrating points of the whole book, but it doesn't take away from the fact that I loved it!
The narrator is a new one for me, and she was good, she has a great voice although there were times where it seemed like the narration was very very slow...perhaps this was deliberate but given what she was saying and the context of the story it seemed like she was trying to add drama where it wasn't really necessary. All of the less than positive aspects of this book pale in comparison to the positive attributes so, I'm already going to purchase and download the other books, as I am now a FURY fan and New Species obsessed!
This is a very addictive series for me. I've listened to the first seven stories back to back, and honestly do not have anything negative to say exce..Show More »pt I love some of the New Species characters more than others. I am so made at myself for waiting so long to listen to these stories..... they are awesome!
I know Slade may not be others favorite characters but he is one of mine especially later in the series, but I don't want to give anything away just in case someone has just started this series. However, the sex scene with Slade and Trisha in the forest, OMG it was off the charts, loved it!
I am a die hard fan of PNR that are slightly on the edgy side, so this series is a must for me.
I really like the New Species series... however not all the books are on the same level...
Book 1 was great, but book 2 fell short to me. Thi..Show More »s one was awesome! I actually think this one was a bit better than book 1. Only slightly. I love the whole possessive alpha male thing...
I love they way this book started... with Valiant and others in a showdown of dominance because the human invaded his territory.. Then he grabs her up and makes her his!!! It was awesome. The whole book was pretty darn good.
I've wanted to hear Justice's story since I began this series and I was not disappointed one bit!!!! This sexy story was further enhanced by his roma..Show More »ntic interest--Jessie--I LOVED her! I've gushed about all the preceding stories, and my adoration of this series continues. Justice's story is less of a "nailbiter" than the other one's so it was a nice change. It still has action, but, it focused more on him coming to terms with his public persona versus being a man in love. I adored every moment, definitely a credit worthy series.
I really love this series, it full of steamy sex, romance, and lots of suspense that will have your heart racing.
Brawn and Becca really ha..Show More »ve to work together when they are captured and locked in a cage. Brawn who's been a captive before is familiar with situation and is very angry but he helps Becca coupe as she has never been subject to this kind of treatment. Their capture brings them closer together but when the are freed, Becca's father ensures Brawn stays away from Beccca that is until a big secrete is reveal that will change both their lives.
Each story has intense heart pounding suspense and steamy sex with lots of attractions between the main characters.
I loved Brawn, he is another one of my favorite characters!
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 ..Show More »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!
My one and only issue is with Ali (Dr. Alison Baker). She was extremely wishy washy the entire book. ..Show More »It literally drove me crazy. Apparently she had a connection with Obsidian because she literally stole him from the NSO... but as soon as he wakes up and she gets to see him again, she gets all "I love you, but I can't be with you".
But what really takes to cake... is how she is supposed to be a doctor, and she has the hugest language barrier with him... She gets pissed b/c he is too blunt... Well he has been locked up in a cage for, IDK... his entire life... so yeah... social etiquette will go right out the window for Obsidian... how does she not get that... Seriously...
The story is pretty much the same format, NS finding their mate with a human... but Ali is just... eh! She reminds me of Trisha... just irritating...
Story is still worth a listen; especially you have invested in the other 7 books... Just be warned... Ali is going to be irritating.
Good Credit, Buy or Sale... Either one...you will be happy... but seriously... think about Ali before you use that credit. I prefer to use my credits on something more expensive and that will leave me feeling satisfied...
Narration was awesome... as usually for this series and narrator...
I fell in love with this series all over again with Shadow. I think this may be the final one in the New Species series but I wish it wasn't. This is ..Show More »definitely a credit worthy series. Shadow's and Beauty's love story is so sweet and endearing my heart was bursting at every chapter. Also this one had a good balance of romance, action and of course humor...I love the misinterpretations the New Species have. I'd love another New Species story, but if I can't get that, anything from Laurann Dohner will do, she's a great author of this genre and Vanessa Chambers is a narrator I'll seek out for sure!
I actually would. I have been an avid fan of the series even though i have found a few of these books daunting and have been tempted to skip through c..Show More »hapters but this book actually drew me in, the characters were a bit more in depth and enjoyable.
This installment of the series contains everything we have come to expect; trouble from new species haters, a beautiful young women in need of protect..Show More »ion, doubt and suspicion from the NSO, action with nail biting- hair pulling moments, and lots of hot sex. What sets this one apart is the main characters. Smiley is different from all the other NS males. His emotions are closer to the surface and he feels more everything This makes him compassionate and a good friend to everyone. Before diving into the story I wondered how Ms. Dohner was going to pull off writing this character as an sexy, possesive alpa male. Well, she did it beautifully and seamlessly, while staying true to the original character the fans have gotten aquainted with over the course of the series. The author also created the perfect match for smiley in the sweet, shy, soft spoken heroine. Loved the way she brought these 2 together. Finally, I am very picky about narrators, and so thankful Vanessa Chambers is still with this series. If you are not reading/listening to this series, then you are missing out. I usually get board with a series, especially when it is the same book over and over. There are so many recurring characters in this book and the story of the NS people progresses with each book. I can't wait for the next insallment...
Probably, the previous New Species novels were humorous and and had lovable characters that made me want to know more about them. The plots of the bo..Show More »oks are rather cookie cutter, but the books have great characters.
