Dana is visiting Homeland when she meets a New Species who tugs at her heartstrings. As a widow, she knows firsthand the pain he’s suffering after losing his mate.
Mourn isn’t so certain that talking to a human female will help him heal but he desires her. It’s possible she could become his new reason for living.

Candi lost the male she loved, but never forgot him. New Species are her only hope to seek revenge for 927’s death.
A human female claiming to have been reared at Mercile has demanded entry to Homeland. Hero rushes to Medical and comes face-to-face with his past. One look at Candi and the life he’s built since gaining freedom comes crashing down around him.


Numbers is book fourteen in the New Species series by Laurann Dohner.

I like this series, but I was disappointed that we don’t get one full length novel. We have two stories on two different New Species in Numbers. They are quick and emotional.


Morn doesn’t believe taking a human female will help him heal.

This story tug’s at your heart strings. The emotional turmoil is vivid and, we as the reader, can’t help but empathize and get caught up in their sizzling chemistry. Dana meets Mourn when she visits Homeland. Both her and Mourn have lost someone in their past and so, they are hesitant about beginning a relationship. There is plenty of chemistry and emotion.


Hero comes face to face with his past.

This story tug’s at your heart too. What Candi and Hero went through in their past was heartbreaking. Candi doesn’t know that Hero is alive and it’s the same for Hero. She wants revenge for the male she lost and her only hope is reaching Homeland, but once she does her world is changed. There is major uproar and quite a bit of tension and emotional distress between Candi and Hero before they resolve their relationship.

Numbers is a nice edition. Though I prefer the full length novel. I still enjoyed coming back to the New Species world.

Rated: 3 Stars

  1. I know what you mean – I just read a novella and wanted so much more. Sometimes they work but we just want/need more. Glad you are enjoying the series at 14 books in!

    • Ya sometimes the novellas or short stories need more and other times the work. It was enjoyable, but I felt the romance didn’t develop as well as the full length novels. Still enjoyable. Thank’s for visiting!

  2. This is another author I should try. Bummer it wasn’t full-length, but it looks like there are plenty in the series to get me started!

    • Yes, books 1 – 13 are all full length novels. For some reason she deiced to switch and do two in one with them being short stories. Not sure why? I still enjoyed though I feel the full length novels are better. I’ve enjoyed this series. My library has the 1st editors, so I got to read them from my library. Thank’s for visiting.

  3. Well that just went in my wishlist. I want to read this one now. I love the creepy feel that cover gives me too.

    • Hope you enjoy. Thank’s for visiting!

  4. Oh a bit too bad for this one…

    • ^_^ It was all bad, but I felt things didn’t develop as well as they do in the full length novels. Still enjoyable!

    • This series is good. I’ve had my ups and downs with it, but I’m going to be re-reading it. The full length novels are better. This was enjoyable. Thank’s for visiting!
