Cherryh creates a believable and richly detailed universe inhabited by a variety of space-faring races - all of which gets turned on its head because of the arrival of a new, unknown species that calls istelf "humans". This story has adventure, battles, politics, even pirates. But at the heart of it are Pyanfar, Captain of the Pride of Chanur, battling to keep her ship and crew alive, and a lone, lost human named Tully, who just wants to get home. I've read this several times over the years and always come away with something new.

One of my favorite Series. A must read for SciFi fans.

For the most part this is an excellently crafted story. It has the elements of the best whodunit SF-(I Robot by Asimov) and builds a plausable set of conflicting interests that must be reconciled. The one bad...the story leaves you hanging in the end so you can't wait to get the next installment. It would have been nice to have at least some resolution in the first series.

This is one of the best I have ever read. It ranks right under Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and Isamov's Robot Series. Complicated but understandable, the story treats each character as individuals with believable roles. Certainly one of Cherryh's best!!!
