READ THE FIRST TWO PARTS OF THIS AND LOVED THEM,DO NOT SEE HOW THIS FITS INTO THE SERIES.ONE SMALL PIECE IN FINAL CHAPTER TRIES TO LINK TO REST OF SERIES.AS A STAND ALONE STORY IT STARTS WELL THEN BECOMES MONOTONOUSLY BORING UNTIL COMING TO LIFE IN THE FINAL TWO CHAPTERS.
First impressions after finishing this book.....Give me more of Darcy and this universe! (You're in luck dear reader! See below )
I found The Druid Gene after reading Jennifer's other works; Fluency and Remance (look them up, they are fantastic too!), and wasn't quite sure what I would make of this book. I was so enthralled with her previous work, and wanted more of those characters, that I was concerned this would leave me wanting. Boy was I wrong! Jennifer Foehner Wells , delivers an engaging and captivating story, set in a universe familiar to those who have read the books noted above. The main character, Darcy, is a strong if sometimes naive lead, but throughout the story she comes into her own, and her story, along with the supporting characters draw you in and make this book a page turner (it's an audible book. but you know what I mean !)
I truly hope there are more books on the horizon for both Darcy and her band of misfits, and the others from her previous work. I can see a cross over event at some point which would be absolute craziness! I hope Jennifer Foehner Wells has the writing bug in her cause we certainly need more of this !

Jennifer Foehner Wells never does what you expect... and this book proves just that. But this is an interesting addition to the Confluence Universe. The Druid Gene introduces a whole new set of players... I think that in the first 2 books I was so fixated on the kuboderan, that I wasn't paying all that much attention to the broad diversity of sentient life the series offered... Well the Druid Gene brings this concept to the fore... As Darcy along with her boyfriend are abducted by The Vermachten a slave ship. The ship is seemingly at full capacity, alien species of all kinds and colors. Slaves in confinement waiting until they are sold. And Darcy well she is special in ways that she had no idea of... Darcy has to learn fast if she is going to survive. And as she learns she makes allies.
So climb on board and discover a realm of new possibilities, as Jennifer weaves her storylines together... the Confluence is going to need all the allies it can find to stop the Swarm...
Addendum... I just listened to Robin Miles audio version of this book and I gotta say that it is brilliant... She gave voice not just to Darcy but to several other creatures introduced in this story and I was captivated... I think Jennifer Foehner Wells made a enlightened decision by getting a different narrator for this new story thread in her series...
