Praise

“A powerful look at the effects of alienation on individuals and societies…probably the best series installment of the year, and a welcome return from one of our very best writers.” —Locus

“The novel features well-developed characters and Cherryh’s trademark sophisticated political negotiations and strong prose. Of particular note is the author’s ongoing exploration of the atevi, one of the more fascinating alien cultures ever imagined. Taken as a whole, this series represents mainstream SF at its very best.” —Publishers Weekly

“Cherryh continues to explore the rich culture portrayed in the Foreigner trilogy with this first novel in a new series. Combining hard SF with realistically complex characters, this blend of adventure and intrigue in the far reaches of space belongs in most SF collections.” —Library Journal

Superior alien-contact series…another intriguing human/alien struggle.” —Kirkus

“Once again, readers can revel in Ms. Cherryh’s ravishing characterization and sensitive exploration of cultural subtleties.” —RT Reviews
