In Book 8 of Laurann Dohner's steamy, popular New Species series, Dr. Allison Baker passionately tends to 880, a wounded New Species: part animal, part man, and in a coma. Knowing that her tempting female scent will lure him into consciousness, she begins sleeping beside him - and after 880 wakes, choosing the powerful and dark name Obsidian, he decides to claim Alli as his. A sensual, versatile performance from Vanessa Chambers helps bring Dohner's characters to life in this sexy example of erotic sci-fi.

Summary

Book 8 in the New Species 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 Alli. No one will stand in his way.

New species 1-9

I love this Author ( Laurann Dohner The narrator Vanessa Chambers is very good and brought the characters alive. I love this set and I agree their best read in order. The only book I did not read was wrath but to be fair it was the synopsis that put me off so I did not download this book, I loved Justice ,Tiger and Shadow the most. I like that the women are
as equally feisty & know what they want in and out of the bed great escapism.

Could have been better.

This was good, but not the best. There was barely any action, no mercile, or protesters were in it, and it was slow. I would have liked to see alli working at the prison and interacting with the
mercile prisoners. Would have been better had something happened there to liven up the story.

So hard... on the fence!

I really did like this book... Really!

My one and only issue is with Ali (Dr. Alison Baker). She was extremely wishy washy the entire book. 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...

Overall ~ A Good Story!!

Obsidian's story was good but my least favorite so far.

I do love how some of the charters are developed over the series but each story is really about a different New Species and Obsidian has been recently freed so he had some issues.

What I did not like about this story was the fact they sent Ali away to bring Obsidian in line and learn how to fit in with society.

However, I will definitely be continuing this series.
