927 - Hero
At the age of 5 Hero was given a PET.... Her name is Candi and she is a 5 year old human girl. She is the daughter of one of the main doctors at Mercile. She witnessed him murdering her mother and neighbor and he needed to silence her.
Candi was never scared of 927 and 927 and Candi became friends. They really had no choice since they were CELLMATES. As Candi began to grow into adulthood the 2 were separated. She loved 927 but her father did not want him mating with her so young. Once Candi was about 16 she was given a choice to let another male mate with her or watch 927 die. What choice is that? She did what she thought she needed to in order to get back with 927. They promised she could be with him again if she agreed to mate with another male first. The other male was a feline and was brutally beaten for saying no to the mating. Candi told him to do it so they could survive.
Of course 927 was in raged when Candi was returned to him. She BETRAYED him. Candi was removed from their cell when 927 had accidentally attacked her and 927 was told that she had died. Candi was told the same thing, that 927 killed due to his violence towards her.
Candi was taken to an ASYLUM where another person from Mercile worked. She was drugged and never allowed to speak to anyone but Penny. Her new prison guard. Candi survived knowing that once she could break free and get back to her kind (New Species) that she could avenge the man she loved. She never belonged in the human world. Candi never blamed 927 for being angry she understood it.
When Candi made her way to Homeland she had no idea that 927 was still alive. She also did not know that 927 would still be PISSED OFF.
Candi worked very hard to get Hero (927) to hear the truth. Hero had to accept that and try to let go of the past. He had loved her and regretted thinking that he had killed her all those years ago.
Now Candi is learning right along side of the New Species and she is part of them now. Hero still cares for her but also told her that if he knew the feline that mated with her, he would kill him. She is not sure if that male is still alive after the raid but she understands Hero's feelings on the matter.
I really liked this one. I love that Candi is human but will never consider herself as such. I just wish the author could write faster, I want another story already. I love these books. The last couple have not had a lot of action and of course I love the action part but this story had a lot of backstory that made you feel so much for both characters. 927 fearing he would hurt Candi once she began to find her sexually attracted and restraining himself from her, and her reaction to that and not wanting him to shut her out because they belonged to each other. I like that when she tried to get into Homeland she demanded to speak to a New Species so she could prove that she was one of them. And she knew by the sound of their voices if they were human, feline or canine.
