Overview

The civil war among the alien atevi has ended. Tabini-aiji, powerful ruler of the Western Association, along with Cajeiri his son and heir, and his human paidhi, Bren Cameron, have returned to the Bujavid, their seat of power.

But factions that remain loyal to the opposition are still present, and the danger these rebels pose is far from over.

Praise

"My favorite science fiction series is C. J. Cherryh’s Foreigner Universe. Cherryh deftly balances alien psychology and human vanities in a character caught between being human and part of an alien race."
– Denver Post
"The Foreigner series is about as good as it gets…so finely and densely wrought that you may end up dreaming of sable-skinned giants with gold eyes, and the silver spun delicacy of interstellar politics."
– SFSite
"A seriously probing, thoughtful, intelligent piece of work, with more insight in half a dozen pages than most authors manage in half a hundred."
– Kirkus
“Cherryh superbly crafts complex intrigues and alien races possessed of integrity, as well as a sense of otherness.”
– Library Journal
“A large new Cherryh novel is always welcome…a return to the anthropological science fiction in which she has made such a name is a double pleasure…. Superlatively drawn aliens and characterization.”
– Chicago Sun-Times
"One of the best long-running SF series in existence…. Cherryh remains one of the most talented writers in the field."
– Publishers Weekly
"Some of the finest work of Cherryh’s long and distinguished career."
– Locus
“Cherryh’s project is particularly impressive, not only because it has gone on for so many years and volumes, but because every partial mutual understanding gained by humans and atevi opens up new opportunities for misunderstanding (and vice versa).” —Locus

“The latest Foreigner Universe saga…is a deep cerebral entry.” —Midwest Review  

Another beautifully woven tapestry in a mesmerizing series about a complex alien society. Ms. Cherryh’s expertise in world-building is again showcased in this masterpiece of protocol and intrigue that blends easily understood emotions with the intricacies of maneuvering that accompanies power struggles on a global scale.” —Night Owl Reviews
