Overview

Brothers of Earth:

The leader of the Hana was a Priestess-Ruler in a world of humanoid aliens. Yet she was more closely related to her human prisoner, Kurt Morgan, though their star nations had been bitter enemies for two thousand years. She granted Kurt Moragn his lfie, but for a price: that he remain indebted to his captors, immersed in an alien environment which threatened to drive him mad. Beset with doubts, Kurt accepted the terms of his capture and despite his misgivings became intrigued with his life.



For he shared something unique with his captor—both of them had survived the destruction of their worlds. And then they realized that the world on which they now lived was on the brink of a devastating war, and they were perhaps the only two sentient beings there who understood the ultimate sacrifice that might come from such a conflict. Could they save this world, or would they die with their adopted planet, humanity’s orphans at the edge of space



Hunter of Worlds:

The Iduve were the most advanced spacefaring race in the galaxy. They traveled where they pleased in giant city-sized vessels, engrossed with their own affairs. The Iduve were humanoid, but they differed from Earth’s own humans in one significant way: they were pure predators incapable of human emotion.



Aiela was a world-survey officer who found himself abducted to serve the Iduve clanship Ashanome. Forcibly mind-linked with two other captives, life for Aiela became wholly dedicated to the service of his captors.



But then the Ashanome came to the world of Priamos, a war-torn planet caught in a struggle between humans and the alien race known as the amaut. When she discovered that her fugitive brother was hiding there, Chimele, leader of the Ashanome, was willing to sacrifice this entire world to destroy him. And Priamos’ only hope for survival lay with Aiela and his fellow captives…

    My Favorite

    They re-released two of CJ Cherryh's original books in one tome, "At The Edge Of Space." Hunter of Worlds is the best. I've read it over a dozen times and I will read it again and again. Strongly defined alien cultures. Well thought out plot lines. A look at human and alien foibles that will resonate well after you finish the book.

    The other book, Brothers of Earth was somewhat disappointing after my initial exposure to Hunter of Worlds. It's a nice story but not as sharply written as the other.

    Over all, you will enjoy Ms. Cherryh's works.

    Two great novels. Well worth buying.

    I had these books for mny years, but during one move, they were lost. Military families move too often. Now, I'm a great grandmother and am very delighted to findvthem again.

    I enjoyed reading two of my favorite stories after all these years. I believe you will find them enjoyable also

    I have read the first of tow stories.

    The first story was very good reminiscent of the Foreigner Series by Cherryh. I will be reading the second story soon.
