Fury (New Species # 1)

By Laurann Dohner


Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments. Company scientists have spliced human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such “experiment” captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him—even if he hates her for it.

Fury has never known compassion or love. He’s spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. Now he’s free and set on vengeance. He vows to end her life but when she’s finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.

Fury can’t resist Ellie—the touch of her hands, her mouth on his skin, her body wrapped around his. He’s obsessed with the scent of his woman. And Ellie wants Fury—always has. She craves his big, powerful body and wants to heal his desolate heart.

But loving Fury is one thing…taming him is another.


I first read FURY back in 2011, and while I’ve read it two or three times since then, the last time I read it was over three years ago.  So when I woke up recently thinking about this book and not able to get it out of my head all day, I figured that was someone’s way of telling me to pick it up again.  Who was I to argue?

I’ve read every book in the New Species series, but it’s the first few books that I really love and that hold a special place in my heart.  They say you never forget your first, and that’s true because this is one of those stories that I can remember everything in it and yet still enjoy reading it.

I love Ellie, who is a very strong and brave woman but who also has a heart of gold.  She hates what the New Species have endured before and after their freedom, and her only goal is to help them.  I love Fury too, who, despite having lived a horrific life since birth at the hands of humans, is willing and able to put his trust in them now that he’s free.  He might be an alpha male, but there’s also this childlike innocence about him.

FURY is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, the books can be read as stand-alones as each book is about a different couple.  There are a couple of scenes that involve rape and gently coerced consent, so if those things greatly bother you or could be triggers, consider yourself warned.
