Overview

The civil war among the alien atevi has ended and Tabini-aiji, the ruler of the Western Association, has returned to power. Bren Cameron, Tabini's human paidhi, decides to return to his recovered home on the coast, but when Tabini's son Cajeiri flees his responsibilities to join Bren, Tabini sends the boy's great-grandmother, Ilisidi, to find him.



Najida, Bren's coastal home, is no longer the safe haven it once was. For a neighbor's estate—the ancestral home of Lord Geigi, a close associate of Bren's—has been left without strong leadership. Lord Geigi now resides on the atevi space station, and in his absence, rebel clans have infiltrated his home. When these rebels attack Bren's home, the paidhi has no choice but to recall Lord Geigi from space. With Lord Geigi, Ilisidi, Bren, and Cajeiri all under one roof, they pose an irresistible target for the enemy. Can these four powerful individuals overcome their adversaries and end this guerilla war that is the last vestige of revolution?



The long-running Foreigner series can also be enjoyed by more casual genre readers in sub-trilogy installments. Deceiver is the 11th Foreigner novel. It is also the 2nd book in the fourth subtrilogy.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Eleventh in the Foreigner series, the longest single protagonist’s career in science fiction, Deceiver is as elegantly complex and satisfying as its predecessors...Complicated and aided by the Aijii-Dowager Ilisidii and a rapidly maturing  Cajeiri, Tabini’s wayward son, the situation moves in Ms. Cherryh’s inimitable style from detail to nuance to emotionally wrenching risks...another must-have from the master of cultural conflict." —Sacramento Book Review

"The worldbuilding and characterization are fascinating." —RT Book Review

"Cherryh's gift for conjuring believable alien cultures is in full force here, and her characters...are brought to life with a sure and convincing hand." —Publishers Weekly

    more from this reviewer

    Stepping stone, maybe.

    As a previous reviewer mentioned, this is the 2nd book in the 4th Foreigner series. It is a continuation of the story in which Bren Cameron is Pahdi to the ruling Atevi on a planet that hosts a human colony, and a human/Atevi operated space station. Previous volumes kept the reader riveted with intrigue and suspense regarding a faction of Atevi and humans who want nothing to do with one another, and will do almost anything to ensure that the piece is anything but, which includes actually working together. This volume has Bren on a mission to the leader of the rebellious Atevi who wish to expunge the humans from Atevi society altogether. But is he really in charge, or is this Atevi merely a puppet? Action, suspense, intrigue and misconception in this cleverly, and well developed Alien world that only Cherryh could deliver.

    Continuation of previous books

    This is the continuing chapter in the series. This book could not stand alone as it continues the last book and doesn't conclude anything. It is just a set-up for the next book. It is good enough if you are reading the series like a soap opera, but it would be good if there was a beginning, middle and ending instead of just being the middle between two books.
