Alliances: Book One

Spunky commander Berit Turner is known for two things: his huge libido and his lack of a filter―he says what he thinks. Berit sets his mind on being part of a mission to Ligador to make sure the planet is habitable for humans. He’s ecstatic when his team is assigned to the task force. A delegation of Nadisc, a humanoid alien race, accompanies them, and passion ignites between Berit and their commanding officer, Tom. But Berit is determined that Tom is just another notch on his bedpost, as he doesn’t do relationships.

The excursion to Ligador goes wrong from the beginning, when they discover Ligador has been established as a breeding station by their worst enemy: the Tash’Ba. Dinosaur-like creatures become the team’s worst nightmare, and staying alive is going to take everything they’ve got… and then some.

The book is narrated from Turner's first person point of view.  There is strong sexual content - but Turner is kind of hilarious and he spends more time fighting his impulses that fighting the monstrous creatures.  The characters are very alive and I thought this was a good setting for the series to come. Unlike many other Sci-Fi writers, Mr. Kat does not assume you know anything about what's going on in the year 2247, so he explains himself.  I am inclined to read the next book in the series. Unless you object to strong gay sexual content - this is a great read.

Interesting world, and inter-species mating. I look forward to reading the other books in the series.
