    "Heartwarming!"

    Absolutely amazing two stories, I literally have been crying non stop throughout them both and I don't cry often at books. These ones send you on an emotional ride.

    Story
    "Sad to say goodbye to the New Species."

    Two books in one was great. If these are the final books in the series I will be very upset. There are some unfinished stories to be told, And many more to make. There is only one issue I have with the series, that is going over what Mercile's main aim is. Fan's of the series know this. I would like to know the origins of mercile, I thought that may happen in the last book, that is why there is more to come.
    I love the Narrator on Audible she brings the story to life in so many ways.

    The author overall has been sensitive to the main themes of the series which is abuse, retribution, family and love. I would like to see more development of the characters we have gotten to know, and a couple to have a female baby.
    As you can see I am a big fan who wants more. So thank you Lauran Dohner for this great series.

    "Numbers did not disappoint!!"
    What did you love best about Numbers?

    How heart warming the two stories were. Plus I liked140 and 927 from earlier books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think I kind of liked 140/Mourn. I loved from from Wrath/Lauren's story. Although 927/Mourn keeping Tammy safe for Valiant was great too.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in the medical center when Mourn was brought in all battered and out of it. Dana held his hand and spoke to him when no one else was arounnd.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried more during Hero's story. It was sad and heartbreaking. Happy ending but I cried buckets.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen (my audio books) the new species books over and over. Valiant&Tammy. Shadow&Beauty.
    And I just can't get enough Smiley. I love them all.
    Write faster please.

    Story
    "Two Halves Don't Make a Whole"
    Would you try another book from Laurann Dohner and/or Vanessa Chambers?

    Probably, the previous New Species novels were humorous and and had lovable characters that made me want to know more about them. The plots of the books are rather cookie cutter, but the books have great characters.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Laurann Dohner again?

    Yes, for the reasons listed above.


    What about Vanessa Chambers’s performance did you like?

    She's pretty good at differentiating the characters' voices and personalities.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Numbers?

    If I could play editor, I would not have cut out any scenes; I would have developed this "mish -mash" of two stories into two complete, fully developed stories - two different novels.


    Any additional comments?

    It appears as though Dohner ran out of ideas and just smashed two works-in-progress into one book. I want my money back. This is the first New Species novel that's disappointed me.

    Story
    "Great choice! 2-fer"

    In this edition called "Numbers" we get two stories.

    Mrs. Dohner took the honorable way out of a problem. She had two stories in her head, but neither was the 9+ hours we are use to with New Species books. She could have filled in a fake kidnapping or some weird drama that would take 2 hours to unravel and 20 seconds to clear up, but instead she just stopped writing when the stories were done.

    Both books are related to the New Species that were recovered when Valiant rescued Tammy, both are about 6 hours long.

    #1: Mourn was rescued with his Mate, but after they got to Homeland she got worse and eventually died. He chose the name Mourn because that is what he was, mourning his Mate. He set about in being self destructive to try and get past his pain and wound up in medical at least once a week. While there, after he tried to take on Darkness (the stupid male!) he met a woman who wasn't like the others. She had lost her human husband and she seemed to understand his pain....could they bring each other comfort?

    #2: Hero had kept Tammy safe until Valiant could rescue her. He had said he did it because he would hope someone else would have done that for his mate, if he had one. The truth is he did have a mate, a human mate, she was put in his cell when he was 5 years old and they grew up together. The last time he saw her he had been livid...they had taken her to be with another male, she had chosen to lay with another male, his fury had no bounds. He didn't mean to hurt her, the chain popped off the wall and hit her, Mercile told him he had killed her, his mistake was believing them. When a human female showed up at the gates of Homeland saying she was raised with a Canine Male at Mercile he raced to medical, hoping against hope, could it be her? When they saw each other time stopped....for her he was a miracle to be alive, for him, she was a ghost who came back from the dead to haunt him and break him.



    Very good two stories, can't wait for more! I really love this world and all it's unique problems.

    "Not her best work, but still engaging"

    I always buy anything this author writes. I understand that she has some health issues, so I am understanding that this is not her best work, and she wants to keep her name out there for those of us who enjoy the world she has created in Homeland. If you like the New Species series, you will see that these stories are not as compelling as past stories. They are both pretty run of the mill romance novels, but still I give Ms. Dohner accolades for penning such an original, interesting series. Vanessa Chambers gives a worth while performance!

    Story
    "Nice Additions to New Species"
    Would you listen to Numbers again? Why?

    Yes, but that may just be me. I often re-listen to the books I enjoy the first time - especially when they have a good narrator. Ms Chambers does a great job with the New Species series .


    Which character – as performed by Vanessa Chambers – was your favorite?

    Kate - the ex-FBI agent turned new species mate has a great scene in the second book of this set...I would not want to go up against her. My favorite character of all is the female new species Breeze - she is always great and very funny. I look forward to her cameos throughout the series - I would love to see her have her own story some day - maybe she will fall for a human male some day? That would be fun! In the first book I LOVED to HATE the mother, she was a great character. I would have liked to have seen that storyline develop into something more - she seemed like the perfect type of character to make trouble for the New Species.


    Any additional comments?

    I was surprised that this was actually a compilation of two unrelated New Species stories as opposed to a single story. The second book is by far the better of the two, it is a longer more fully developed story, plus it is different from most of the other New Species storylines - a refreshing twist. That is not to say the first book is not good - it is just much shorter and it seems to resolve a little too quickly and easily - there seemed to be some interesting possibilities with the mother - but everything just resolved quickly and easily.

    Story
    "Second Chances."

    Mourn: 4 stars. A sweet little romance about two people who lost their mates/spouse and learn to live for someone again. I liked both characters and it was great knowing they found each other to give support and to love. I loved the way Mourn tried to seduce Dana, but then realized he was failing and confessed to what he was doing. 5 hrs. 29 mins.

    Hero: 3 stars. Not my favorite story of the series. I was not a fan of how Hero treated Candi and then how she kept groveling to him afterwards. The whole jealousy focus is my least kind of romance and this book had more than its share. Also I'm not a huge fan of stories that have a lot of flashbacks of a previous relationship gone wrong. 6 hrs. 42 mins.
