    One thought on “Deliverer”

    1. I am consistently pleased with this series and this one does not disappoint It wraps up the third semi trilogy that follows Bren Cameron, human translator for the Atevi now Lord of the Heavens, friend and confidant to Atevi Lords and little Atevi children The great part of this book is that we finally get a new PoV Cajeiri, the Son of Tabini, the great grandson of Ilsisdi, is missing his human friends aboard the spaceship and is semi successful in fitting in with the rest of the Atevi He likes t [...]

    2. 4.5Tabini is back in power and juggling with all the strings of power, trying to get everything back to the way it was before the coup, something that is not as clear cut as might appear All the Houses are in turmoil, and some are resisting, especially in their views of Bren s supposedly nefarious influence In this ninth volume, Cherryh gives us something different Indeed, the narration is this time shared between Bren and Cajeiri, Tabini s son I wasn t too sure at first, but very quickly came t [...]

    3. This time we get a view of Ilsidi s fractious Eastern neighbours as Bren and company attempt to settle back into their apartments and their responsibilities, and clean up after Murini s disastrous coup And we get, for the first time, insight into Cajeiri and how he views atevi life as Cherryh shifts perspective between Bren and Cajeiri throughout the novel Over several books I have loved watching Bren puzzle and analyze his way through Atevi politics, and enjoyed watching the man consume myriad [...]

    4. Well this one, while very good, did not have me at the edge of my seat It was very unusual in that it changes POV between Bren and Cajieri, the 8 year old heir and the aiji s son The Dowager, Ilisidi and Bren s two bodyguards, Jago who is also his lover and Banichi continue to be fascinating characters Bren has become indispensable to both Ilisidi and Tabini, the aiji I ve ordered the next two of the fifth trilogy The third is not yet written This last trilogy was available for my Nook, which I [...]

    5. Is the atevi kid growing up Will Bren get to use that stupid gun he s carried through 9 books Will the aiji dowager kick some ass Will I care Nope.Why am I still reading Because I start something and I finish it, no matter the pain I didn t leave the military early I didn t quit school I clean my plate I suffer.

    6. This is the 9th book in C.J Cherryh s Foreigner series and not surprisingly, sequelitis has taken residence in the basement like an adult child that just won t launch And it is just about as welcomeLet me be perfectly clearCherryh is a favorite author of mine Downbelow Station was a GREAT book I thoroughly enjoyed her Chanur series I even enjoyed roughly 6 of the 9 Foreigner series books I have read despite Cherryh s tendency to obsess over mundane details However, that being said, Deliverer fee [...]

    7. CAVEAT This review contains spoiler material, not about the book itself, but about the preceding eight books i.e if you have not read the previous books, you might be better off reading my general review of Destroyer or reading my blog post on Cherryh.Deliverer is the ninth instalment in the series and the concluding part of the third trilogy, as it were Picking up from the situation left at the end of Pretender, paidhi Bren Cameron is once again installed albeit in a somewhat temporary accommo [...]

    8. Enjoyable, although not one of my favorites of the series, as it seemed like it had repeats of several scenes the series has already done before I liked the introduction of Cajeiri s point of view pretty well, and I liked the worry over whether his social instincts have been screwed up by spending time with humans during a crucial developmental period.

    9. I love CJ Cherryh and this is a great series, but this book was just not quite it It seemed incredibly pointless, honestly And a new POV felt very out of place and dragged down the book, in my opinion Probably my least favorite of the series I ll probably take a longish break before diving back in to book 10

    10. I ve read this twice, maybe I enjoy the striving for balance between trusting and understanding motivation in both humans and aliens The science in this science fiction is psychology.

    11. Now I ve come to the end of the third trilogy in the Foreigner saga New swathes of Atevi society have been illuminated, the aiji s son Cajeri has moved into prominence as a major character, and it seems as though the rebellion has been put to rest But has it One thing about anything C.J Cherryh writes, you can t call anything over until it is, and in a way, it s like living through the political and social changes of the past 50 years, as I ve done, only knowing what I can find out, and getting [...]

    12. Science Fiction Series The ninth book in the Foreigner series and she keeps churning them out The leader s son is kidnapped and Ilsidi goes on the rampage The characters are well drawn and the stories continue to entertain.No Canadian or pharmacy references

    13. This may be my favorite SF universe Solid outing in the series although I wouldn t expect a person could jump in here You need to know the universe, backstory and characters.

    14. A nice continuation of the adventures of Bren human in the land of the Atevi, and with Ilisidi Ateva , Banichi, Jago, and Cajeiri Atevi Make we want to read the next volume

    15. 3.5 for meThe additional POV didn t bother me as much as it seems to have others this is one of the rare times a kid s POV didn t annoy me And there were parts I really enjoyed I just found the story a little uneven and so I found it tattered out a bit with the explosions and guns by the end Which is unfortunate, considering the shocking revelation about a very small bullet It s not taken away from my enjoyment of the series and I ll be diving into the next one pretty soon After all, where are t [...]

    16. This is the 9th installment of the Foreigner series Like all the others, it is best not read as a standalone book That said, one could probably read a sequence the series is written in 3 book sequences this was book 3 of Sequence 3 , but will be much richer if one starts with the very first book Bren Cameron and Cajeiri, the 8 yr old son of Tabini aji, are the main characters in this one, although Ilisidi, Cajeiri s great grandmother, is very present as well While Tabini has been restored to lea [...]

    17. 9th novel in the Foreigner series, Deliverer certainly delivers The civil war is barely over Links with the spaceship and the human area of the planet are barely working and Bren has a huge amount of work to do His diplomatic role in smoothing over problems and his role as interpreter are stretching him Also he now has to pull back from contact with the son and heir, Cajeiri, who has to be seen to be firmly atevi, and like his aiji father, firm enough to hold the lords together The poor boy is n [...]

    18. This is the ninth book in the Foreigner series, and the third of the third trilogy I enjoyed it But I still feel that these three books could easily have been condensed into a single larger one Again as I ve said before, reading a book in the series is like coming back to a comfortable friend You settle in and meld yourself to Bren s mind and start to wonder about all the possibilities for two thirds of the book and then, suddenly, the last third explodes into action This book is no exception It [...]

    19. i love this Foreigner series, these characters, and every nuance of every formal diplomatic sentence the dowager Ilisidi has just spent two years on a spaceship she is no less herself for the experience, though her great grandson Cajeiri has certainly acquired some interesting human associations and ideas now she returns to her home planet, quelling a revolution, holding a dinner party no less fraught with danger , mending the fabric of her own powerful associations some culture shock is inevit [...]

    20. This is the conclusion to the third trilogy in the Foreigner series but by no means an end in and of itself I do believe book 16 just came out so there is plenty reading to do After what I considered to be a purely transition book in 8 Pretender , our cast of characters doesn t get much in the way of a break when young Cajeri goes missing right out from under their noses in the Bujavid Tabini aiji tasks Bren to meet up with the Dowager and find his son It s layers of intrigue and insight into a [...]

    21. Cherryh tries something new here surprising for the third book in one of her trilogies, which usually have a consistent structure and tone , switching between Bren s point of view and Cajeiri s as the young heir is forced to give up all his old associates in hopes of bonding with his parents and developing proper feelings of man chi And the poor kid, abandoned and homesick, discovers that he may have reason to mistrust some of the people he s been forced to take into his new household, returning [...]

    22. The series drags pretty horribly at some points, but that is part of it s brilliance the realism Over all I really enjoyed this and learned how dynamic a fiction novel could be and by book 2 9 really cared about what happened to the characters This is difficult to do while setting up a math based alien world, making humans the invading species, developing a human that has to learn to adapt to their alien ways, and at first, believably become an enemy of his own species before society begins to r [...]

    23. So, this ended up being a really good book I have never been absorbed by so much not much happening The bulk of the book is a stream of thought from the main character as he works his way carefully through a verbal minefield trying to avert an alien civil war Somehow this was thouroughly engaging and I kept glued to the book through out.As a bonus, this was a first in the vernerable series that also touched on an atevi alien person s point of view His unprecidented contact with Humans has altere [...]

    24. You have to read the first eight books in the series to understand what is going on in this book, so it s not one to jump into I loved the first three books in the series the second three were also good, though I disliked some of the developments The seventh was rollicking good fun, and I m enjoying this one so far, though I was disappointed Cherryh chose to write from the perspective of one of the aliens Until that point, the aliens, which all too humanoid, were still different enough and uniqu [...]

    25. Once again we are drawn in to the chaos of the Atevi and Bren This time we are still dealing with the uproar that the overthrow caused return return Each book leaves me wanting to know about the Atevi, and as I draw close to the end of the series I almost do not want to read the last books because then it will be over and all these characters that have been so skillfully created, that are so real to me, will be lost I will no longer know what is happening in their lives return return This to me [...]

    26. Cajeiri s an interesting kid He s stuck between the human life he saw between six and eight ah, such unfelicitous numbers , and his Atevi future Over the past few books, we ve come to know and love him, so it s fantastic to see inside his head.The actual plot isn t that interesting but then with Cherryh it never needs to be , the Eastern alliance is in turmoil, view spoiler Cajeiri gets kidnapped by a rogue contingent hide spoiler , and we see a lot of Sidi ji awesomeness.If the past three books [...]

    27. C J Cherryh s Foreigner books are always comfortable and entertaining She s somehow managed to create this incredibly detailed story line from which she continues to extract exciting books This was the conclusion to her most recent trilogy and I couldn t put it down for the last 100 pages.If you haven t read the others, this review isn t going to make that happen And if you have, this review probably isn t necessary I ll just reiterate that it was a thoroughly enjoyable book the kind I find myse [...]

    28. This book went by so fast I can barely remember anything specific about it, I read it in two nights and then spent the next day reading the next book in the series That being said I do remember that the young lord Jeri had a bad series of days in this one, and Bren seemed to be feeling the pressure of returning to the Atevi Court during the crisis This book seemed horribly short and could have easily included the next book in the series.

    29. Just as good the second read through Bren and company all of whom would abhor that appellation are back from space with Tabini as safely back in power as ever he was, and now they are sorting the fall out of the usurpation and return to power Manchi realignments throw Bren s associates into danger which means he once finds himself in an exciting situation Even the second time through I could not put the book down during the last half Fantastic storytelling and characterization

    30. I wonder how many other books I ve read since 2007 never made it onto this list This was one of the memorable books in the later part of this series The young crown prince gets kidnapped, and Bren goes to rescue him.Anyway, I just bought the original sketch for this cover by Donato Giancola I actually got into the series in the first place because of the cover art on Foreigner by Michael Whelan It helped me to strongly identify with the main character.
