Review :

This is hard for me ….

For a reviewer it is never easy to admit when one of his/her favorite authors disappointed in a new book. I have been reading the “new Species” series by Laurann Dohner since book1 and I loved all of them.
Maybe its because of this that I had certain expectations for “Numbers” – and “Hero” ending in a kind of short story was SOOO not one of them.
140 – Mourn’s book was a short and sweet story. With any other kind of book this sort of InstaLove would have never worked. But as the New Species are introduced in a sort of Insta-love-forever-kind-of-people almost any kind of Insta-love works for them self explaining. Still it felt to short because in comparison to other books there was more in this story that was used.
927 – I think I do not want to start on what was wrong with “Hero’s” book. Because even if the basic idea was good – the complete setup felt wrong. I am not sure – but I imagine that I am not the only reader who wanted to hear his story and somehow it feels that the author just wrote down a short story so the readers would not request it anymore. There could have been so much more to this one and I truly feel that this did not do “Hero” justice – he deserved more.
