“The stirring ninth entry in Cherryh’s much praised Foreigner series…As always, Cherryh alternates complex political maneuvering with pell-mell action sequences in an intensely character-driven SF novel sure to appeal to the many fans of this series.” —Publishers Weekly

“Bren Cameron’s travels among the atevi and in a context redolent of a feudal Japan equipped with futuristic technology continue from Pretender. His mission combines diplomacy, intelligence, trade, anthropology, and safeguarding Cajeiri, a vitally important eight-year-old heir shrewd beyond his years…That transforms the book into an absorbing combination of anthropological sf and “The Ransom of Red Chief.” Faithful Foreigner saga followers, in particular, will have a ball.” —Booklist

“Cherryh deftly balances alien psychology and human vanities.” —Denver Post
