Review: Untouchable, by LV Lloyd

UntouchableI just finished a book I’d been planning to read for a long time – LV Lloyd’s “Untouchable”. It’s a space opera, and the fifth book in Lloyd’s Aurigan series. It’s also the first full-length book I have read by Lloyd.

I really enjoyed the book.

In a nutshell, it’s about several “oms” (Aurigan parlance for homosexual) on the patrol ship Qatar. The story opens with a bang – with one of them on trial for raping a minor, the son of his best friend.

Then it spins back to the situation that resulted in the trial, and off we go. Lloyd weaves together a mystery, a case of mistaken identity, and a cast of both gay and straight (and questioning) characters into a series of relationships, and you’re really not sure where it’s all going to end up until you get there.

I loved the various characters Lloyd created, especially the conflicted Michael Banner as the ship’s doctor. She’s adept at setting up character conflict, and then delivering realistically on that promise.

If you’re a fan of space opera and well-drawn characters, I highly recommend the book.
