Praise for the Foreigner series:
"C.J. Cherryh’s splendid Foreigner series remains at the top of my must-keep-up reading list after two decades. Number 14, Protector, does not disappoint.... And then there’s grownup political intrigue and gunplay for the icing." —Locus (forProtector)
"One of the best long-running SF series in existence.... Cherryh remains one of the most talented writers in the field." —Publisher's Weekly
"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

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.
Allerdings sehne ich nun doch langsam das Ende dieser Serie herbei.
