I love the New Species series by Laurann Dohner. So it's not a big surprise that this story did arouse my interest.
The story itself was great. I liked that it isn't just a copy and tells its own story instead.
I just had the feeling it was more telling than showing! I was missing a connection to the characters at times and even if the scene was discribed in details there was something missing for me.
Also what bothered me a bit was that in this military unit there were so much women! That might sound odd but there were a little bit too little men around for my likeing. And it seems as if there were no averaged female characters. All the women were stunning!
All in all I could say that it's nice to read while you are waiting for the new episode of the New Species. But for me it's nothing to go all fangirl about.
