He should have just consplrator This series is still proving to be my go-to feel-good alien-human political machinations with a good mixture of comedy and in-depth world-building.
If you’ve never checked it out, the “Foreigner” series chherryh a “must read” for any serious science fiction fan. When she was older, she learned to use a typewriter while triple-majoring in Classics, Latin, and Greek. Politics can really be deadly here, which is why Bren Cameron’s life as a human representative among the atevi continues to get ever more complicated and never stays quiet for long.
LitFlash The eBooks you want at the lowest prices. I cannot believe this is the 10th volume and I am still completely happy to stay in this world with all its players: The human factions thus far seem simpler by comparison. I tuck one in now and then as a special reading treat. I’m following this series through book by book, and loving it.
No Canadian or Earth or pharmacy references. Jun 21, Macha rated it liked it. Conspirator is the 10th Foreigner novel, and the 1st book in the fourth subtrilogy.
It’s all rather dull.
So you’ve got these calm, dignified, often terrifying giants, but they can get absolutely flustered by human emotions.
On the other hand, perhaps a large part of that is because the author writes so well from Bren’s perspective conspiratoe Bren’s continual belittling and compartmentalizing and underestimating of the two cnspirator they fail to live up to his expectations is so frustrating that it may just be brilliant writing at its subtlest. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
Cherryh addresses all three cases fairly nicely, however there is much more to be unearthed in all three cases can you say sequel plus one. Cuerryh 25, Denise rated it really liked it. As is her style, Cherryh drags a very small scenario out over a few hundred pages.

Feb 17, P. A district that once was considered a safe haven might now be a trap. Inspired by Your Browsing History. Rating wise this one is conspiratot very solid 4. Cherryh has won four Hugos and is one of the best-selling and most critically acclaimed authors in the science fiction and fantasy field.
He decides to visit his estate on the coast and leaves the conspiraror. I thought this was an improvement over 9 in the series.
But it’s not that they don’t understand anger or arguments, especially marital ones. Watching a couple humans in the middle of an argument just upsets the heck out of them. I guess as long as people like me buy the books, Cherryh will keep writing them. The series becomes repetitive, the descriptions of the background information and Bren’s inner monologue longer and longer, the action more confusing, the progress of the plot minuscle.
Bren takes a cnospirator vacation to his sea fonspirator home but all heck breaks lose when assassins try to take out him and the heir. Bren and his brother reach an understanding, Bren’s household is confronted by an shocking amount of raw human emotion, Tabini-aiji learns from afar conspirwtor to help his son, the dowager great-grandmother Ilisidi rearranges the politics of the planet more or less casually on a drive-by, and Bren stops worryijng about cherrjh apartment and his technology ban.
That was the hope cnospirator, but the Aiji’s son Cajeiri, who has been on best behaviour for the past month is bored, annoyed and knows his living situation is going to become intolerable very soon. And who grows the tea that the Atevi drink by the gallon?
I’m waiting for the arc of this trilogy to gain some momentum, but am losing I wanted to like this book because I’ve enjoyed the first several books in the series, and in fact have re-read them several times. Bren’s old apartment is occupied by a clan with a claim to it and the aiji doesn’t want to throw them out but nudge them out slowly.
Dec 14, Anitha rated it really liked it. Only things are far from settled. Certain southern factions can’t wait to assassinate them.
A guilty pleasure is how much I enjoy when Bren fixes Barb with a cold glare and thinks to himself how much he hates her. Cherryh’s Conspirator in one sitting today. Her hobbies include travel, photography, reef culture, Mariners baseball, and, a late passion, figure skating:
