The main character True, I love. I love everything about his character. Those of you who have followed this series knows that there is not much else or new that I can say about a New Species character like True, so when I say that he's beyond awesome, hot, sweet, endearing & sexy, you can appreciate it, right? So he's the reason why this book got 3 stars from me. Now, onto why everything else failed for me in the 11th installment of this series...
How many times is the author going to have other Species barging into another's apartment when they are having sex or trying too? This has happened every single time since book 1. How many times is security gonna be breached at Homeland or Reservation? She keeps stating how secure this place is by showing you all the guards & trained associates/high tech security they have. Yet in every single book, people are still able to sneak in undetected until its too late.
*This is just NOT acceptable*
As you can see, I'm sick of these scenarios. Then there is his mate, Jeanie, she ( the author) was getting on my nerves with the constant references of how many Species Jeanie has helped while in captivity. I got it the 3rd time it was mentioned. I get it. The woman is a saint. Move the plot along already. And how many times was she force drugged? Even after she was rescued & taken to Homeland. There's no way she could have taken all those drugs back to back without any side affects or dying. (Heck most of those drugs killed some of the New Species or caused them to be ill.) Especially when we are constantly reminded how fragile she is & the fact that she's human. Yet nothing happened to her. I mean she didn't even throw up. None of that was believable to me.
And the fact of why her boss used that breeding drug on her wasn't really touched on til like 63% in the book. By that time the explanation & the way it came about just fell flat for me. So it all left me like...
*shaking my head* "No"
The mating.. You would not have to convince me to legally mate someone like True but when it also came to the practical aspect of her predicament, (Keeping her out of prison til she was proved innocent) This is me:
*running to get those damn mating papers...*
We'll cross the bridge of "Does he really love me?" later, even though it's painfully obvious that he already does.
But still, here is Jeanie denying to embrace her common sense in this matter...
*crying & whining* "I can't"
Because of all this, it also took me forever to finish this book. Usually I fly through these stories. But it was bound to happen. I can't love them all. Just surprised by how much I was bothered by this one. If you follow this series I would say read it. You may like it. I didn't though.
Will I be back for book 12, "Darkness"? You better believe it. I was quite intrigued with him. But I already know who he's going to end up with, from the way things played out here. That doesn't stop me from being curious to see how it unfolds though. I pray Ms. Dohner that Darkness' story unfolds much better than True's did.
I was so mad when I finished this book knowing I would have to wait. I love the New Species series I have read it multiple times it's a series I find myself going back to and wishing other authors could write Paranormal romance so well. I want Darkness's book yesterday but to be honest I just want another Laurann Dohner book. Why must authors make us wait, do they think of us as their children who need to learn patients;} ?
True has a soft spot in his heart for Jeanie she was always kind to him when he was held prisoner, till he found out she was just trying to get on his good side so that she could use him for another experiment. Now free True works with the task force. Jeanie always loved True and did everything she could to help make his hell of a life bearable till the director found out and blackmailed her, her body for Trues life. What no one knew was that when Jeanie found out what was going on she called the NSO and has been working for them ever since. She successfully help free True and the others at the facility. Now on the day of another facilities raid and against orders Jeanie came to help.
When the NSO comes storming in Jeanie is shot and captured, but most of all she is shocked to see True. Even though True should hate Jeanie for what she did to him seeing her brings back old memories and he can't sit by watching her being sent to prision even though she works for a company keeping New Species. When Jeanie wakes up and claims to be working with the NSO they know she is lying but True can't stop himself from defending her and trying to protect her. True has the task of proving Jeanie's story to be true while he finds himself falling back in love with Jeanie. But someone wants Jeanie dead and even with all of the precautions the NSO puts up to keep her safe Jeanie keeps finding herself in danger, now True will stop at nothing to keep his mate not only safe but his forever.
I loved this book, I started it and didn't want to put it down, I found myself reading through it too fast and wanting to slow down so I could prolong my LD fix. And then I found myself shocked that I was finished and more than a little sad(**NOTE** according to my kindle I had 10% left when the story ends:( ). Laurann Dohner has a way with words that takes you into her stories, I was completely wrapped up in this book. I didn't want to cook, clean, pick up children:} I didn't want to do anything but be wrapped up in this greatstory.
I loved True and Jeanie. True was yet again another fanfreakingtastic LD hero. I loved how controlling and possessive he was. Jeanie was it for him, there was no one else but her, and he willingly fought to keep her. This is another great addition to this series that not only hasn't slowed down or dragged but has sped up and only gotten better. This is another Laurann Dohner book that I cringe at giving 5 stars to because it deserves so much more but since that is as high as I am allowed to give this book I will, just know that I think this book deserves way more than 5.

Things did get a little wobbly in this series a few books ago and , depending on what you are looking for in a series such as ' New Species ', the negative comments that a couple of releases got were either totally justified OR a complete load of rubbish !!!!! The one thing that really worried me was that this wonderful slightly futuristic world had only just started to scratch the surface of how bigoted & evil some people/organisations are in the real world of the here & now. This author has cleverly mirrored our own human prejudice , shortfalls & allsorts of other nasty things that go on all around us. Things that some could not believe another human could twistedly allow to happen, initiate, or frankly even comprehend at all.
History shows us just what evil creatures can become from a damaged human mind - & what's more we keep doing the same things , the same way from millennia to millennia, century after century, year after year ( & mostly for the same reasons, even if those reasons are not unearthed for years & years after the fact ) !!
I feel privileged to have found an author that recognises the reality of our lives today & has so masterfully managed to cloak the truth into fiction that makes things far more acceptable to the majority. With the above in mind, try to read the series with a different outlook, read with the vision of today's atrocities, a new understanding of some of our own 'Species' & I hope that the ingenuity of authors like Laurann Dohner - & others like her - will receive the TRUE recognition that they deserve .
By the way, after my own enlightenment just let me say that this book is a fabulous story, one to read again & again - & yet again shows just how much a woman in a partnership/marriage used to be loved, cherished & her protection was usually the most important thing in an honourable partner/husbands life.
I often wonder if the yoke had been a little more forgiving toward the women that came before, us just how the structure of our world could or would be in these modern time! I like being treated like a lady. If the truth be told, I think that most of us do & that's why Romance Stories - even the spiced up ones ( or do I mean especially the spice up ones!) - will live HEA !!!
When the task force turn up they believe Jeanie is involved and treat her badly. New species remember her and how kind she was to them and they help protect her.
True remembers her kindness and is told she did it to betray them.but True and Jeanie end up falling in love.
I'm gutted this is the last in the series.......for now. I believe Laurann Dohner is writing more!!
