2.5/5; 3 stars; B-I like the New Species series enough to keep following along with each installment. A lot of the characters are appealing and the concept of the world building is interesting. However, I have been disappointed with some of the books because it seems the author loses focus on the overall story fills it in with sex. Lots and lots of sex. In fact, I had to break down and create a new shelf....I couldn't see the story line for all the steam rising off the flailing bodies. Too bad, because the character of Tiger has been in most of the books to date and I think he got shortchanged in terms of development and depth. Not so bad as what happened to Justice but pretty close.
