Of course, that is not counting on Cajeiri, who can’t take much more of his enforced alienation of all things human and lack of freedom. I tuck one in now and then as a special reading treat. If you’ve never checked it out, the “Foreigner” series is a “must read” for any serious science fiction fan. I This will the third time I’ve written my review of this book.
As so often with Cherryh, it is at its heart a story about culture clash between different species, in this case between the humans or a group of them that has been stranded on a far-off planet and the atevi the dominant species on that planet. I cannot believe this is the 10th volume and I am still completely happy to stay in this world with all its players: And this is it – one truly huge epic told in episodes rather than a variety of plots in the same universe.
As in all of the Foreigner series, the title gives us a nice clue on the books focus and Ms. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Cherryh was putting the Foreigner series to bed.

Determined to insure his son’s safety, Tabini recalls Ilisidi from her home in the East, asking her to find Cajeiri and secure him at Bren’s estate. But factions that remain loyal to the opposition are still present, and the danger these rebels pose is far from over.
The stakes are just not as high as in previous trilogies, and it drains some of the life from the story. What he leaves behind is one very disgruntled Cajeiri, who takes cherryu upon himself and The jacket blurb for this book is generic to the point of pointless, since the story revolves around Bren, the Dowager, and the young gentleman Cajeiri as the characters and plot moves forward.
This family now claims loyalty to Tabini, but the aiji is dubious.
Certain southern factions can’t wait to assassinate them. I still find Cajeiri’s POV irritating–it’s hard to sell the atevi as fundamentally alien when we get to see their thoughts and they’re basically human. Aug 30, Condpirator rated it it was ok.

And none of these novels are right without Ilisidi, his great-grandmother, and close friend of Bren. Cherryh planned to write since the age of ten.
Great grandmother is leaving for her eastern estate and leaving HIM behindhis bothersome uncle Tatiseigi is comspirator back and making Nand Bren leave, and he is going to have start lessons with his dull tutors again. The next three novels in the series take the reader deeper into atevi politics of the past so that we can see how the threads run into the present.
