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. Hatered 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.


Review:  This series just keeps getting better and better.

Allie has decided that she is going to do all she can to save 880. She asks for permission to do what she feels will finally help him and everyone keeps telling her no. She finally takes matters into her own hands and kidnaps him to see if she can get a reaction out of him.

Boy does it ever work. I have been reading all the New Species books in order and when I finish one I have a new favorite. They just keep getting better and better. This one was just a little more emotional to me.

If I was a doctor and had a patient that I was falling in love with and would do anything to make them live I would do the same thing that Alli did. I just can’t seem to find the right words to describe what I am feeling right now.

I really hope that this isn’t the last New Species books. I don’t believe that I would ever get tired to reading them. I just can’t describe the feelings that I have for that crazy quack doctor. What he said to Alli was really uncalled for and I’m not going to get started on that. I believe that Alli did what she thought was best and that she shouldn’t be punished for it.

The passion between Alli and Obsidian was really hot. I think I’m still feeling the effects. I was left wanting more. I could tell that they are made for each other. Please Laurann Dohner write some more books about these amazing people. I get more and more drawn into the story the more that I read. I feel like I am in the story and experiencing it along with them.

I don’t know what I’m going to do now. I was waiting for this book to come out and I got it and read it all in the same day. What will I do now. I guess I can go back and reread them all and see if I missed anything. Let’s hope this isn’t the last that we see of the New Species.

  1. Thank you so much for reviewing Obsidian. I deeply appreciate it. The next NS book is about Shadow. Moon’s story will be after that…followed by a lot more stories.
