Invader written 21 years ago is the second in the soon to be 19 book Foreigner series. Cherryh's education and teaching in the classics and ancient history gives her a solid foundation for world building and it shows. Book one details a migration ship stranded in uncharted space by a mysterious malfunction. The stress of survival splits the ship into two factions. One wishes to continue in space despite the reduced capabilities of the ship and leaves the second group stranded on the nearest planet and sails into the ether. The land bound settlers soon make contact with the natives and seemingly good relations erupt in a bloody war ruinous to both sides forcing an uneasy peace. Two hundred years pass. This is all an an intro to the book's lead protagonist,Bren Cameron, a mild mannered academic who is one of only a handful who is fluent in the speech of the native population. This earns him the pivotal position as the human representative to the hostile locals and he manages to connect to the head of government who's hold on power is tenacious at best. Caught between humanity and a growing sense of attachment to the locals Bren is a target of multiple assassination attempts as he scrambles to survive a potential revolution in the making. So ends book one with the events of Invader covering the next two weeks as Bren's world erupts as enemy action heats up and the long gone human space ship returns upsetting the delicate peace between humans and natives. Old friends and enemies continue and new one are introduced as the plot slowly builds with impressive detail leaving few stones unturned. Intelligently written with superior world building as Cherryh's writing skill is showcased. Engaging rather than exciting is the best way to describe the pacing. Sci fi for grownups is the way I see it.
This entire series is incredible. The pace can be very slow at times and I'll confess I tend to skip over some of the main characters musings as they seem to go on and on. These books, so far up to number 7, are mostly inside the main characters head. It's not written in first person but third limited. So we only know what the main character knows and we discover things as he does. So the tendency is for the main character to wonder about this and ponder about that. Based on what he knows, based on his ability to surmise and come to logical conclusions, he will think and figure things out in his head.

So with that said there tends to be less action than other SCi-Fi books and in this world of fast paced adventure movies, I'm sure not every reader will enjoy this book or the series. But, each book builds on the last and gets better and better and better and if you have patience and can understand from the beginning that this is more of a cerebral type of book then it is my opinion that these books are apart of the best written Sci-Fi extant.

The author has the ability to, through the main character's musings and interaction with the other main characters, compare the differences between vastly different races and actually shed light on how we in our society could learn to interact with and live along side others who are different from ourselves. And as the series continues she continues to delve into the differences and similarities between races.

She sheds light on the inner workings of the human psyche in times of extreme pressure. Interactions between one human culture and another; between humans and aliens who though vastly different from humans, are, at the same time, similar.
This is the second book of Bren Cameron, who is the translator, interpreter, and go-between between the castaway nation of humans and the ateva inhabitants of the planet. After a disastrous war, the humans agreed to gradually turn over their science and technology in exchange for a separate survival, with a single human arbiter to prevent change from disrupting ateva society or the peace. But now the human spaceship has returned, Both castaway and ateva society have breakaway elements that want to use this change to reshape society so as to exclude the other. Bren is for balance, and unity, but has no absolute faith that he can strike that balance, since he is still foreign to the Ateva (who have no words for love, friendship, or liking, apart from salads), can have no understanding of the humans of the spaceship, who left the humans behind two centuries before, and is increasingly alienated from the culture that he grew up in. On his side, (maybe) the leader of the Ateva who shares some ideas of the future, but who would sacrifice him for the sake of those hopes, the leader's grandmother who is also a powerful political leader in her own right, and of course, the guild of assassins, who seek to maintain order. Is there anyone on the spaceship who both can and will help Bren in finding the balance? This is the best series about the meeting of widely different cultures meeting and the traps to be avoided, that I have ever read.
If you like science fiction and you like Cherryh this is a good one. It's a sequel to Foreigner and it's about a planet that humans landed on when their ship got off course that was already populated by natives who are hardwired very differently. This fact did not become apparent to the humans until they crossed boundaries they didn't realize were there and a terrible war broke out. The humans now live on an island and send a diplomat to live w/ the aliens to translate both ways and assist w/ treaty negotiations. It's told from this diplomat's perspective. Only some humans went down to the planet and at some point the ship abandoned them. The two books cover a crisis that occurs that threatens the stability of the basic treaty.

Such a good story in the old fashioned sense of a saga. You will end up being happy to read all 17 (19?) books across long evenings. Bren, Iisidi, and Cajeiri will become your welcomed companions on this thoughtful and thrilling space opera. I can't wait for the next two books to be published. CJ Cherrryh doesn't disappoint!
