Book Review – Protector: Foreigner #14

Review
“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 )

“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 )

“There is plenty of intrigue…marvelous attention to detail that makes the culture of the atevi one of the most complex, multi-layered creations in science fiction…. 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.”
(SF Site )

“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 )
