Cranky Author Reviews: Numbers by Laurann Dohner

Spoilers
Numbers is actually two books in one the first about species #140 or Mourn and the second 927 or Hero...

Book 1: Mourn/#140 is the feline male from Wrath's book who's mate was sick because they where giving her drugs trying to breed them...They end up killing her and leaving Mourn alone and angry

Mourn is starting fights and everyone thinks he has lost it but then he meets Dana (Paul the human nurses sister) who also lost her husband to cancer. She is still broken up about it but wants to help Mourn find his happy place...

She and Mourn hook up in speedy species fashion...For me this one fell a little flat maybe it's because they repeated a similar scene from a pervious book or that it was just a little too hum drum but I found that I was disappointed with the story about this couple maybe the focus was too much on their lost mates for a while or something I am unsure. I can't pin point the exact moment this one lost my interest... 

So for me this one was a NSEPE or 3-star read...

Book 2: 927/Hero is the other species from Tammy and Valiant's book the one who kept her safe while they waited on the rescue to come for them. He is shocked to find that Candi a human and his mate who he thought he'd accidentally killed  when they were still trapped inside Mercile was actually not dead.

Candi was kept in a mental institution for  years until her father who put her into both Mercile and the crazy house dies. The woman that was helping him takes her out to murder her only the jokes on her because Candi has a plan to escape. 

She ends up killing the woman and runs right to homeland and Hero who at first rejects her...

They eventually make up after the truth comes out about how she had no choice to do what she was forced to do but it's a bit heart wrenching because they are both hurt by what happened and Hero feels a lot of guilt that he never looked for her and she was help captive...Because she was raise with the New Species from a young age it's interesting that her thoughts and her verbiage is more similar to them than the way a person would talk or refer to things...

This story I loved and do recommend although I would have liked a bit more of the story to be about Hero and Candi I loved the story.

So for me this one was a EPE or 5-star


Since this is a twofer and I loved one and not so much the other and I can only give it one rating on Goodreads/Amazon I will rate this one a SEPE or 4-star
