Are you ready to enter the world of the New Species? I know I was and my expectations were met with this long awaited book. In this installment of the New Species series, the multi-talented author Laurann Dohner combines two stories into one book, Numbers. We are given more insight into the workings and relationships of daily life at Homeland. These stories are science fiction romance and you will not want to miss reading more about the characters we have grown to know and love so much. This is about how two New Species find their destined mates and eventually their HEA.
140’s story was first introduced to us in book 6 when he and his mate were rescued but she was dying from the drugs being pumped into her body by the vicious scientist of Mercile. When she died he felt part of him had died and accepted the name Mourn. Dana lost her husband to cancer and was also grieving from his loss. She decides to visit her brother, Paul (the human nurse we've known throughout the series) and meets Mourn when he is brought in to Medical. She is drawn to the devastated grief-stricken male. A bond of friendship blossoms between the two wounded souls as they find their way to a new beginning together.
927 saved Valiant's mate, Tammy in book 3. He has taken the name Hero and is well liked among the species. Candi's life was changed forever the night she witnessed her father murder her mother. She has been incarcerated in an asylum since she was sixteen and finally is able to escape and get to Homeland where she demands the New Species help her avenge her male. Malnourished and struggling to survive Candi is a survivor and when she and Hero connect the story unfolds with unexpected twists that will keep you reading until the end.
Both stories explain to readers and fans of the New Species series, the daily life at Homeland and we also get two happily ever after endings. Survivor is the theme of this remarkable book. Both couples survived losing parts of their souls but through their mates those pieces are made whole again and redemption is found. Beautiful love, possessive males, and addictive erotic scenes only enhance this reading experience created by Ms. Dohner. We highly recommend you add this book to your library.
