Kurzbeschreibung

1. April 2014 Foreigner (Buch 15)
At last—Cajeiri has his young guests from the starship, three young folk entranced by weather and trees and creatures with minds of their own. It’s all he dreamed of...
 
But now safety is foremost: Cajeiri’s grandfather has been assassinated, hostile Assassins Guild invaded Great-uncle’s house, and now Bren Cameron, paidhi-aiji, who was sent to keep the aiji’s son safe, has more than the young guests on his mind. The aiji-dowager knows who’s to blame for the attacks, and they’re going after him.
 
The fact that the person responsible is in the heart of Assassins’ Guild Headquarters, the most closely guarded fortress on the continent, is not going to stop her.
 
Bren Cameron has the pieces now, of a decades-old plot that’s been threaded through Guild actions going back before his arrival on the continent, and more—he knows the person responsible is going to find out he knows, and find out within hours.
 
They have no choice. If they don’t move, the other side will.
 
And the lives of the boy, the guests, the entire ruling family are at stake.

Pressestimmen

"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

3.0 von 5 Sternen Long book for short story 29. Juni 2014
Von sareta
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
In the beginning, I absolutely loved the Foreigner series - great description of politics amongst truly alien aliens and humans, and their interaction. But this book is the fourth? fifth? that takes 200+ pages to describe the events of a few days in minuscule details - and this is getting tedious. I get the feeling that the author does not know where she wants to take the series in the end, and writes one too-long book after the other to stall the fans' impatience while she finds out. Please don't! I'd rather wait two or three years for a really good book instead of buying a new book every year hoping the story will finally continue somewhere, and finding it doesn't.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Some Pacing Problems 30. Mai 2014
Von swanpride
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Is has become my policy to see each trilogy as a whole...and I have to say that this time around that the series is slowly falling in the "long series" hole.

A mayor problem is the need of the writer to explain again and again what happened in the former books. This might make some sense at the start of a new trilogy, but becomes cumbersome to a degree that by now each book has one to two chapters which are basically summaries of what happened before, and much more detailed than it is needed. The gilde rules for example are established no less than three times in this last book.

Next are continuity errors...suddenly Damiri supposedly doesn't know to what level her son speaks the human language, even though there was a whole scene about the issue in an earlier book. Irene was originally introduced as Arthur's sister, but now she has another mother and there is no mention about them being siblings. Wilson-Padhi was supposedly a man who could think in the Atevi language, now he is suddenly someone who needed to consult his books all the time...said books which a padhi isn't even supposed to have at hand on the mainland according to the rules established early on. Not even the order of what happened so far is established correctly in the "overview" the book offers on top of all the explanations.

Nevertheless, still a good book. Even though I am actually way more interested in the interaction of the children than I am in the conspirator behind the conspirator behind the conspirator.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Krönender Abschluss von Cherryhs Foreigner Serie 16. April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
1994 habe ich der ersten Band der Foreigner Serie gekauft, weil sich die komplizierten Erzählungen von Frau Cherryh mit Ihrer Darstellung der fremdartigen Denkweise der Aliens und der ständig bedrohlichen Situation der Hauptfiguren so wohltuend von anderen Science Fiction Werken abhob. Leider stellte der Heyne Verlag die deutschsprachige Ausgabe der Foreigner Serie nach dem dritten Band ein. Leider konnte ich damals keinen englischen Text lesen. David Webers erster Band ist 1997 auf dem deutschen Markt erschienen. Seine Bücher reichten endlich an Cherryhs Geschichten heran. Weil die englischsprachige Ausgabe etwa zwei Jahre vor der deutschen Übersetzung erhältlich ist und ich deren Erscheinung nicht erwarten konnte, kaufte ich Ashes of Victory und las den englischen Text mit Hilfe eines elektronischen Wörterbuches. Nach drei Wochen konnte ich einfache englische Sätze ohne Wörterbuch lesen. Da ich im Internet eine Warnung fand, Cherryh schriebe englischen Literaturstil, der nicht für Anfänger geeignet sei, wagte ich mich erst Jahre später an den englischen Originaltext des vierten Foreigner Bandes. Die Internetwarnung war berechtigt. Vielleicht hat sich meine Fähigkeit englische Texte zu lesen auch verbessert. Jedenfalls bereitete mir der 15. und vermutlich letzte Band der Foreigner Saga großes Vergnügen. Ich begreife nicht, wieso es sich die deutschen Verlage entgegen lassen, eine deutsche Ausgabe von Frau Cherrys Büchern auf dem Markt zu bringen. Oder liegt es daran, dass es angesichts des durchschnittlichen Science Fiction Niveaus für Frau Cherryhs anspruchsvolle Bücher bedauerlicherweise keine deutsche Leserschaft gibt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best in the Foreigner series since the first trilogy 2. April 2014
Von P. M. Whitehouse - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
For readers who have never read the Foreigner series or coming back to it after a long absence, this 15th volume in the series is a perfect re-entry into the fascinating world of the atevi.

Peacemaker continues the story of Cajeiri's plight just trying to have a (9th) birthday party. Continuing from the the events of the 14th book where the translator Bren, has stumbled on the details of a far reaching plot in the Assassins' Guild. Bren and company are determined to set the world aright and relieve the pressure on atevi society, caused by higher ups in the Guild and family politics.

This book centers around the plan to throw the rascals out of the Assassins' Guild while protecting Cajeiri and the human children and preventing the plan details from slipping into the wrong hands. Cajeiri's mother Damiri is operating under the misapprehension that her father had been assassinated by members of her husband's family, and the impending birth of Cajeiri's sister has the whole family in a dynastic uproar.

Like most of the Foreigner series, the book is a complex mixture of alien versus human psychology and convoluted but understandable political intrigue. Ms Cherryh's world-building is first rate, and her writing style strikes a happy median between the stilted style expected of the atevi society and the informal humans. Of note is the summary narrative by Lord Geigi and Bren at the end of the book (not noted in the Kindle table of Contents, but in the book, nonetheless). If you have not read previous books in the series, read Lord Geigi's History of the Aishidi'tat starting at location 4798 (about 91%) first. There are no spoilers in the history. For long-time fans of the series, my only quibble is the lack of much about Jago and her relationship with Bren.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Liked it! 4. April 2014
Von Jo L - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really liked this book.

I found the back story of the guild and other historical events very interesting.

The atevi "leaders" are making it clear to Bren how they feel about him. He is valued. It would be interesting how the atevi "leaders" would describe their relationship with Bren. What word(s) would they use?

At first, I was not fond of the alternating voice of Cajeiri and Bren (which started in earlier books). Now I enjoy what is running through Cageiri's mind. It is interesting because he is young and he has lived in both the human and atevi worlds. He, and his human friends, are learning so much about each other. Yes, they use the word "friend" now knowing they may not be able to use it when they are adults ..... or will they???

I am looking forward to future books and how they deal with the Kyo and the "others" out there. I look forward to Cageiri's development as he gets older and what he "teaches" his baby sister ......

5.0 von 5 Sternen Yay for Damiri! 1. April 2014
Von Billy Dean Woods - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was a real pleasure to read. Plenty of action and lots of loose ends getting tied. The scene with Damiri compelling Bren to inform and advise her was gripping. I already want to go back and read it again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent addition. No WhisperSync for Voice :( 4. April 2014
Von Charlie Russel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Peacemaker focuses almost exclusively on the long standing domestic problems that Tabini and Bren have been fighting (or dealing with the consequences of) for decades. Now, they have all come to a head, just as Cajeiri's fortunate 9th birthday is about to happen, and his young guests from the Station have come to visit. The Stationers, Cajeiri's associates from when he was on the station and the ship, are on a planet for the very first time. With wind, rain, thunderstorms and lightening, and, of course, macheiti. But everyone is suddenly at extreme risk as the decades long problems in the Guild come to a head.

This book ties up lots of loose ends and is a very satisfying read. We still have many areas to move forward on, but unlike some previous books, this isn't a cliff-hanger for the next. Very enjoyable, and highly recommended, if you've read the previous books. If not, by all means go immediately to the first, Foreigner and get it. You have a wonderful series ahead of you.

Unfortunately, Amazon in it's infinite wisdom, has not made this book WhisperSync for Voice enabled. That is a shame, since the Audible version of the book is read very well by Daniel Thomas May and being able to listen to his narration adds considerably to the book. I really don't understand why they dropped WhisperSync for this book - most of the others in the series have it. Very annoyed, but I haven't let it affect my star rating.
