An eBook Review: Haunting Blackie by Laurann Dohner

I recently received a copy of this book from Ellora’s Cave – and I was absolutely delighted! I am a fan of Laurann Dohner’s books – in particular, of the Zorn Warriors, Cyborg and New Species series. So when Ellora’s Cave gave me a copy of Haunting Blackie, from the Cyborg series, I was freaking out a little! (Also, it’s the first time I received something for review.)

But it you haven’t read anything by Laurann Dohner, here’s the blurb from her latest.

Eve’s mission is to rescue cyborgs from termination centers on Earth. She is blindsided by the overwhelming attraction that draws her to one of them. He’s handsome, sexy, and she wants him, craves his touch as she has no other. She must send him to freedom but she makes him promise to wait for her.

Blackie cannot forget the courageous woman who saved him. He never learned whether she died during the rebellion or just changed her mind about leaving with him but he holds her within his lonely heart. He exists to serve the Cyborg Council and protect the new world cyborgs have created. This changes when he discovers the woman who haunts his dreams is alive and the cyborg leaders left her behind to die. He’ll never lose her again and he’ll fight his own kind to avenge and keep her.

The Cyborg series is a science fiction series, set mostly in space and other (fictional) planets – think Star Trek, but with way, way more sex!

Haunting Blackie was different from the previous Cyborg books, because Blackie and Eve didn’t have the whole miscommunication, and I hate-that-I-love you thing going on. Plus, it was almost like a crossover of the New Species into the Cyborg world. Eve and Blackie have history, but the novel wasn’t bogged down by their personal issues and I liked Eve, she was quick to stake a claim and not let go! You go, girl! (I’ve always wanted to say that, lol!)

I didn’t like Blackie previously – honestly, I didn’t even remember who he was till I started reading this book – but he was way different with Eve. He was actually considerate. (See, proof that douchebags can change.)

Likewise, the supporting cast – Gene and Eve’s sister – really step it up in this book and we get to see a lot more involvement from the other characters which really makes the world come alive. The story did take place mostly off planet – and it seems like the next one will do that as well. (Yes, there are going to be more! This one also includes a teaser near the end.)

I just hope that Ms. Dohner writes the next book quickly – I’m slowly dying with all the waiting we have to do between books! But if you haven’t read anything by Laurann Dohner before, then you are super lucky, because she has an extensive backlist of fantastic work.

Overall, impression = READ. THE. BOOK! 😉
