    The Morcai Trilogy

    To truly appreciate this cast of strong personalities, you must read the full compliment of books. Without this last of the series, you're left with too many questions.

    Although the primary characters are, in fact, dealt with deftly, there is still room for another story (or stories) involving some of the secondary cast. Perhaps just using the story premise?

    Highly Recommended -- a long awaited conclusion to the series

    I fell in love with the first book, The Morcai Battalion. The second book was a long time in coming as it was released in eBook format and a year later in paperback. This third and final book of the series is available only in eBook format. What can I say, I was desperate -- I loved the series enough to purchase a color Nook and it was worth every penny to read this third book. The twists and turns of the third book answers every one of the questions that came up in the first two books -- the main characters are so much more than you ever thought possible. All three books of the series are worth re-reading time and again.

    Emotion-fueled space opera

    Dtimun and Madeline have served and fought together as soldiers and have quarreled as friends, but now that they're traveling through space on a mission to save the future of the universe, it seems that they'll be coming to terms with their deeper feelings for each other as well. The Morcai Battalion has been fighting against the Rojok Dynasty, and now these two heroic characters have to save an enemy commander by pretending to be married. But it's a difficult act to pull off since Madeline is a human and Dtimun is a Cehn-Tahr alien (Note: I can't read "Cehn-Tahr" without thinking of centaurs...), so there has to be the added complication of a little bundle of joy on the way.

    The Cehn-Tahr are humanoid and look human, but they keep giving hints that they're also feline. They can eat small animals whole, their eyes glow in the dark, and they're big on hunting. I'm coming in on the third book in the series, so there's a fair bit of backstory involving Cehn-Tahr behavior and Dtimun and Madeleine's pasts, but it's not too distracting, and it's important for the reader to be aware of the species differences. The Cehn-Tahr try to hide a lot about themselves and their culture, but the most unusual thing about them is how they manage to completely hide their true appearances with some advanced technology. Even when they work alongside humans, no one really knows what these aliens truly look like.

    The world is good and the interplanetary conflict is set up just fine, but one major plot element felt strange to me. Dtimun and Madeline don't just have to have a commitment ceremony to act as their cover as they go to save this important Rojok man-they also need to produce a hybrid child in order to really convince people. Komak, a traveler from the future, says this baby's existence is absolutely necessary to the future of the universe, but there are intergalactic laws against hybrid children, so they are both risking execution just by being the kid's parents. I think the pregnancy is just a way to get our two leads together, and though it would rearrange the entire plot, I think I'd really find the book more interesting if there were no pregnancy and Dtimun and Madleine were simply working undercover to save an enemy and thereby save the future. That would be a cool story in and of itself.

    Dtimun is very rough with poor Madeline. It's presented as not being his fault, and in a way, it isn't. It's supposed to be an involuntary alien thing, and at least he knows how inappropriate his behavior is, but I still couldn't help but find some of his treatment of Madeline distasteful. I don't mind the warrior society of Klingons on Star Trek, but maybe that's because we never see them close up or get a real feel for what it's like to be one of them. Madeline patiently bears with so much trouble, and it's hard to see her suffering. Dtimun suffers too, though-they both get more and more emotionally involved as time passes and they experience more turmoil. Overall, M and D are two nice people who have a problem with communication. They just need to tell each other that they want their marriage of convenience to be permanent and they'll both be fine, threat of execution or no.
