Overview

Peacemaker: Foreigner #15 by C. J. Cherryh

The fifteenth novel in Cherryh’s Foreigner space opera series, a groundbreaking tale of first contact and its consequences…

Civil war on the world of the atevi is finally over. And Cajeiri, son and heir of Tabini-aiji, atevi leader of the dominant Western Association, is about to celebrate his fortunate ninth birthday. Bren Cameron, brilliant human diplomat allied with Tabini, has managed to arrange a visit for Cajeiri’s three special associates from the starship Phoenix—ordinary human children who developed a bond with Cajeiri during his two years in space.
 
After a year of political upheaval, this is a happy event: the heir is safe, the aiji is back in power, and a massive celebration is planned in the capital. The whole world is watching.
 
But Bren Cameron has received evidence that security has been severely compromised from the aiji’s high office on downward. The powerful Assassins’ Guild—which provides the judicial system, law enforcement, and personal protection in atevi society—is in the hands of a man who would like to turn the entire world back two centuries.
 
Bren now knows the details of a decades-old plot that’s been threaded through Guild actions since before his arrival on the continent. The enemy’s best chance is to strike now, at the public celebration that is much too important and far too advanced to cancel.
 
Bren and his associates have no choice. If they don’t make the first move, the other side will. And the lives of the heir, his innocent human guests, and the entire ruling family are at stake.

The long-running Foreigner series can also be enjoyed by more casual genre readers in sub-trilogy installments. Peacemaker is the 15th Foreigner novel, and the 3rd book in the fifth subtrilogy.

Ms. Cherryh never fails to delight and the universe that the serial takes place in is unique. The story is what science fiction should be.

One of the best in this series, and I have read all 15. The whole novel covers a few days that are filled with intrigue and fill in much form the last two novels in the series. Could not put it down.

If you like alien books this is writer has got the right stuff to bring an alien point of view to life. I would recommend that you start with the first in the series but her books work for stand alone reads too.

I feel like I am reading an ongoing series. Some authors, the books repeat. This series feels like there is still a story to tell, and the characters grow and develop over time. Starting at book one is a very good idea.
