Breed or New Species?
I probably didn't give this one a chance b/c it is the 7th in the series and it was, IMO, very tepid and predictable, about a tough New species named Tiger who:
a) mysteriously, long ago, developed a distaste for human females and a distrust for humans in general, which is not explained very much but obviously is enough for him to reject his human lover...tedious
b) finds lust with a human female and can't keep his hands off her, but decides to do all the "mate" things with her w/o actually declaring her as his mate because of-firstly, his own issues, and then secondly, her
issues...and it grows more tedious
All of this is surrounded by ever-relentless human anti-species factions who want to eradicate the New species and will even use torturing Species' human love interests to get their point across. This could have sparked a little appreciation, except the highlighted human opponents made very stupid characters (waste of word time).
This story, within this series, felt a lot like the plot has been done already
, a copy cat of the Lora Leigh's Breeds minus the detailed biological and medical exposition(NOTE 2 FELLOW BREED FANS: Dohner's New Species includes genes and features of primates. Hmmm? LOL
) and minus the well-established rules of mating, BUT again this is the 7th in the series (and the 1st one I've read...Should bk #7 be so blah?
Maybe the previous books give more clarity to these things(a reason to give another go at the series?). Maybe. Maybe (the I-told-you-so Conscience says) NOT.
