Hard Duty: Merkiaari Wars 1, by Mark E. Cooper

"Mark Cooper continues to delight with his continuation of the storyline he started in What Price Honour story arc. I find the quality of story writing to be above average. However, there's a depth to his characters while still shallow enough to keep the flow of the story pushing forward. Similarly, his writing shows a real patience with the characters. The author has taken the time to develop his characters and keep the plot fresh. A lot of these Space Operas suffer from an inability to develop new and interesting characters. But Cooper has done a great job of introducing an alien "cat like" culture with interesting characters. No spoilers from me. If you enough space ship battles and ground action you will like the pace and tenor of the story. The story stands alone and does not require What Price Honor to enjoy it." -- Amazon reviewer

Humanity's last encounter with aliens saw sixteen point two billion people killed in a war with the Merkiaari that had spanned decades.

Two hundred years later, the Alliance is cautiously exploring beyond its borders again, but the survey corp. is considered a mere gesture by some. General Burgton of the 501st Infantry Regiment believes a lack of expansion is leading the Alliance into stagnation. So when one small ship discovers a new alien race, it should be an easy decision to make contact, but what if the aliens are like the Merkiaari?

Captain Jeff Colgan of the survey ship ASN Canada is at the tip of the spear. His ship made the discovery, his crew's lives are on the line, and his decisions will decide the outcome. Will the Alliance make new friends or will he be responsible for another sixteen billion deaths? When the aliens discover his ship and begin hunting him through their system, his mission changes from one of study to one of survival.
