Praise for the Chanur novels:

“Furiously paced action… intricate, interesting, precarious alien politics.” —Publishers Weekly
“Like the other Chanur novels, Chanur’s Legacy is a lively tale of swashbuckling capitalism in space… This new series offers good reading and genuine fun.” —Locus
“Cherryh has given us an alien psychology story, and she has done a grand job. It is a mark of Cherryh’s success that here, it is the human who seems alien.” —Analog
“This is a rousing good tale, and Cherryh’s feisty hani are the most believable alien characters to come down the SF pike in a long time.” —Kliatt
“C.J. Cherryh can be counted on for a fast-paced story and intricately worked-out alien cultures.” —San Francisco Chronicle
Desperate and dangerous action, and political on both the grand scale and the small… fascinating aliens and fast-moving adventure. Rating: Three wows and a lot of purring.” —SF Review
“Purely exhilarating… first-rate science fiction adventure.” —Minneapolis Tribune
Compellingly written, with distinctive characters and well-realized races and cultures.” —Fantasy Review
“Cherryh’s performance as a writer is… on a level of quality to which few writers will ever attain… and uncommonly deft storyteller…” —The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction
“The political intrigues are as desperate and incomprehensible as anything in the newspapers… Space opera at its best.” —Feminist Bookstore News
