I don’t do sci-fi romance. I don’t do aliens. But this book? Yep, I can definitely do and I did it with a smile on my face and a skip in my step because I found The Forgotten Commander so damn interesting! The alien life, their culture, all the different names and slang terms they had for things we use every day, it was so creative and I loved it!
I’ll admit, if K. Webster wouldn’t have co-wrote this book, I more than likely wouldn’t have read it, just because of the content (sci-fi and aliens)… but I’m soooo glad I did because this book was highly enjoyable. It wasn’t too angsty, it wasn’t emotional, it was simply about aliens breeding with human women to repopulate their dying planet with a hot romance involved.
“Stuck on a creepy planet with sexy albino vampire giants with elf ears and it doesn’t totally suck.”
But these alien/Mort dudes weren’t that different from humans. The only thing sort of unappealing about them, to me, was their forked tongues, but according to Aria (heroine), she really loooooved the forked tongue, especially down there… if ya know what I’m saying.
There are only 10 Mort males left on the planet Mortuus. Almost their entire population was wiped out from a deadly disease. They had all but given up hope until they found human women in deep-sleep ‘cryo-tubes’ on a passing ship and stole them. Aria was the first to wake so it was the Commander who got to claim her first.
I loved Aria’s character. She was feisty and she let these sexy alien dudes know that she wasn’t just going to be a breeding cow. Breccan, the commander, had a lot to learn about human females but he adjusted quickly because he was smitten with Aria and all of her little human quirks and would do absolutely anything to please his little alien.
The Forgotten Commander was sexy, hot, creative and addicting. I was immediately drawn into this story from the first page and I wish I wouldn’t have had to put it down the few times that I did to do ‘life’, but alas, I have kids to be fed and work to be done. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading a book by Nicole Blanchard before now, but after reading this book and not being able to tell who wrote which part because it was so well-written, I’ll be definitely adding her to my TBR list.
This book wasn’t just alien erotica, there was a well-developed story here and one that I was definitely sucked into. The world-building, the characters… I enjoyed all of it and will definitely be continuing with this series because there’s going to be several other hot alien vampires with elf ears, who I all fell in love with, to read about in future books. I definitely recommend this one for a great read!
