Our planet, Mortuus, is lost and dying.
A desolate place where a few lone survivors dwell.
My men have lost hope. Our future is bleak.

The most we can hope for is survival.
We’ve all but given up when an opportunity presents itself.

Procuring these women went against everything I’d been taught, but desperat

”You taught me strength when I thought I had none left. You taught me to care again when I wanted nothing more than to let myself burn up with this planet. For that, I owe you the world. I owe you whatever life you want for yourself…”

WOW! It has been a while since I have read a science fiction romance and all I can say was that ”THE FORGOTTEN COMMANDER” was super steamy and so addicting! I couldn’t get enough of this story and am dying to g

K. Webster is writing Sci-Fi?!?! With breeding trope?!?!
Count me in.

The scifi stories with lots of breeding are some of my favourite bedtime stories and my midnight snack :)
I have to admit that it was a good effort. But I needed more. Not much details, not much world building, very abrupt start.
I will wait for the next book.

K Webster and Nicole Blanchard delivered one heck of a mortarekking hot story!

Welcome to the world of morts and humans. Breccan and his men live a very isolated existence. They are no strangers to loss, having watched their people die painfully one by one. Their race is dying out and they've lost all hope. Until they come upon five life forms - humans - giving them the spark to try. It's breeding time!

Little alien Aria belongs to me. And I'm going to put my mortarekking seed inside of her.

I’m sorry to say I found this book disappointing. There’s very little world building and I didn’t particularly like any of the characters.

Generally this is the point where I cut my losses and move on. But this book had some fabulous reviews so I stuck with it.

I struggled all the way through. Yes Breccan eventually tried to please his mate. Along with the rest of his guys but it was too little too late for me.

Aria was simply annoying and the story itself had more holes than Swiss cheese. But...

So I do love a bit of alien romance and this one for me delivered a really great start to this new series.
Such a highly imaginative endeavour this was: I adored the descriptive world building and overall alienness of the Morts they for me had almost a reptile feel to them with there forked tongues and paralysing venom.
I also really liked the unique vocabulary used throughout: it really added a nice touch to the whole story, made everything seem just a tad more exotic.
So this is the story of Bre

Rekking Brilliant.

On the rare occasions when I read a m/f romance, it has to be rekking marvellous to hold my interest. This was rekking marvellous.
Purple was my preferred alien colouring, but now it has serious competition from Breccan - a sexy, albino, animalistic, vampiric lookalike giant with elf like ears 😁.
Due to a vicious plague like illness that swept through their planet like a tornado, only 10 men remain alive. Without females to re-populate their planet, they will all perish - alone a

Interesting, but lacking many things.

The world they're living on is hell: radiocative, nothing grows on it, predators everywhere... So, how the dying race can get hope only because they found 5 human females? So they, re happy because they can reproduce, but there're some very big problms with that! What will they do if they manage to multiply? Where would they live? What will they eat? It seems too far fetched for me...

Also the heroine... She wants to run away from the aliens. OK, it's understa

I'm not going to rate this one because honestly, I HATE sci-fi romances. However, I ADORE K Webster, so I figured if anyone could get me to like a sci-fi romance, it would be her. Alas, nope, I just couldn't get into it. I found it too weird. The whole "forced implantation" thing was creepy as f-ck, and SO not OK on ANY level. On top of that, the heroine was super annoying...c'est la vie!

I hate to leave negative scale reviews, but I felt an honest review needed to be left for this book. Hopefully the constructive criticism helps the author in the future if she tries this genre again.
The better parts of the book:
I'm leaving 2 stars instead of one due to the fact the aliens in the book sounded semi attractive and the leading male in this installment has potential, but the real stand out guy in the book is Hadrian.
The areas that need improvement, lots of discrepancies:

Despite my absolute, undying love for anything and everything Star Wars, I never thought I’d read a science fiction romance featuring aliens. K. Webster and Nicole Blanchard somehow convinced me that maybe aliens in romance aren’t as strange as my mind thought, because this series, in all its unusual, non-conforming quirkiness, is actually quite addicting. I was left gobsmacked at my frenzied reading pace of this introduction to this intriguing series, The Lost Planet.

Madam Commander...

These were the terms of endearment, which Breccan spoke to Aria time and time again. After reading this alien story, I wanted my own mort. I wanted to be part of Aria's sub-faction. I'm going to be truthful. I wasn't quite true how this was going to play out. I've never read any type of alien story romance or otherwise.

I'm glad that I took a chance and went into the story with an open mind. I wanted to be fierce, independent, and loyal like Aria. I wanted to be in B

Blasts of radiation and Rades, a terminal fatal disease that resulted from the radiation, has all but decimated the inhabitants of planet Mortuus. Only ten male Morts remain before their species becomes extinct.

A unbelievable rare miracle results in five cryotubes containing alien females coming to their planet. Initial tests are optimistic that these females are a match with the Morts bringing hope. Hope that they can breed the females.

Not all is as simple as thought when the first female is

It's not a secret that I have a thing for aliens. When I read the blurb I was hooked!

The Forgotten Commander is SO GOOD! It fulfilled all my hopes and dreams and I want more!

You have an alpha alien hero, a sassy heroine, an amazing crew of other hot aliens and FANGS.

Yes, the fangs are important! And so is the fact that those aliens are basically germophobes. DUDE, I'm a germophobe! So, yes, I felt like I belonged! LOL

I can't wait for more books in the series. I'm so excited, it's not even funny!
I loved this book. I have read it twice now. I am so excited that K Webster is writing an alien series. I can't wait to see what happens next. I am totally invested!

I love me a good Mars Needs Women story, but this one was just not my cup of tea. Way too light on the world-building, too heavy on the alien vocabulary... YMMV.

I'm absolutely under shock. Of all the types of stories I could have come to expect from either author, this book as not it. I love how science fiction novels gives author's the opportunity to let their imaginations run wild and the forgotten commander was exactly that. It was captivating, imaginative, unforgettable and I simply cannot wait for the next instalment to find out what's to happen to these Morts and humans.

It was actually interesting to discover a new but a bit similar world and i'm curious about what will happen in the next books. The "love" story itself was meh but the smut was good.

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 co

What the rekk did I just read?

Let me preface this with the statement that I am NOT a sci-fi or fantasy fan. I like Star Trek, Star Wars, and Game of Thrones. I have completely confused myself. Stick with me here.

It took me a minute to warm up to this one. The primary issue is that the morts are reptilian complete with nogs, skulls, sub-bones, flat noses, and forked tongues. Not hot human-like Aliens. Not humans lost in space aliens, but straight up...aliens.

The story is about a dying alien popul

I don’t read much SciFi, I have a couplefew on the list, but it’s a short one, but when K Webster announced this new series I was all in (#fangirl here). It didn’t matter the genre (or sub genre in this case), I needed to get my hands on her words and a bonus was I’d get to experience an author I have wanted to read, but haven’t had the time to and I thoroughly enjoyed. It was a quick, fun and smexy read that is filled with characters I want to know more about and a world I

While there really wasn’t anything “new” in this book - heroine wakes up in alien world where population is dwindling rapidly and they need women as mates, make babies and save their race I really enjoyed this one. It kind of was like Dixon’s IPB in reverse with a hot radioactive planet instead of “not Hoth” but like the first in that series there is good world building, a likeable heroine and a swoon-y hero. Will definitely check out the next ones especially Dravens book (scarred brooding “brok ...more

I have read a bit of Sci-Fi- romance novels some are hit, some are misses but I have to say this was a hit. K and Nicole bring a different light to the sci-fi range and I liked it.

In this series (for now) we get one alien and one female (we usually get a reverse harem theme going on), we have a male Breccan Aloisius who is the commanding officer who has come to terms with never having a future. These men know that they will never see a woman and have children. When a ship full of women are fou

DNF 44% 4th book by this author, and the last!!

Has some great reviews but found it to be a silly porn book. Except it had Aliens involved as well as humans, in a breeding program. It was simply too weird; embarrassing. The grotesque descriptions of the monsters would have been terrifying in reality, but there is little that is real in this book. Holes all over the plot, and shallow, wooden, annoying characters. And did I say boring and predictable? I’m definitely in a book slump; nothing worth

Not sure how I feel

This was a hard read to review, although it has redeeming parts I couldn't get over how they took them to just breed, it was disturbing in a way that they were just cattle to these men. The beginning bothered me the most as she's having a miscarriage and blood is running down her leg, they just implanted her with a baby as she slept! And then all the while the commander wants her put back to sleep like nothing, then when he feels her against him he decides to keep her and bree
