The Pride of Chanur  (Alliance-Union Universe) - C.J. Cherryh

I'm only about halfway through this, although I'm going to try to push to finish it soon. I just wanted to say, wow, the assumptions I made before I started. Reading the brief publisher's description and looking at the cover, I figured 1) that the human man would have a more active role in the story and 2) that the cast would be almost entirely male. Number 1 is a definite "no" so far - Tully, the human, has spent much of the book meekly doing whatever he's asked so that he hopefully won't become a slave or end up dead. And Number 2... Those felinoid aliens on the cover? They're all female.
