From its beginnings as a human-alien story of first contact, the Foreigner series has become a true science fiction odyssey. The ninth book in the epic series, and the third book in the third Foreigner trilogy, Deliverer is a worthy contribution to Cherryh's magnum opus that is destined to be a classic.
The odyssey continues - the epic tale of the survivors of a spacecraft that crash-landed on a planet inhabited by a hostile, sentient alien race. Now in the aftermath of a civil war, the world of the atevi is still perilously unstable. As atevi and humans seek to coexist in peace, the fragility of the situation worsens as the world of the atevi is further fragmented into different camps.

"Earthly business is not over yet!!!"
Paidhi-aiji is at his best. It's up to him to decide what to restore and what to destroy.
As always book was excellent
"just keeps getting better!"
I am amazed at this author's ability to weave incredibly intricate patterns around the thinking of vastly diverse cultural memes. if we ever discover other intelligent alien species , CJ Cherry's work on this series will prove, I'm sure, to be profoundly useful. but this is by no means a purely intellectual exploration. it is filled with intrigue, Danger, heroism, and lots of action.
"Outstanding story! Highly satisfying!"
The 9th book in this series and they keep getting better and better. Very exciting and very satisfying. I have so enjoyed each succeeding story culminating with the final story in this sequence. More politics, intrigue, and Bren Cameron continues to be the central figure in this saga. Daniel May does another wonderful job narrating this story. Warm, amusing, consistent, simply outstanding. Experience these stories in sequence. You will not be disappointed. Bren saves the day once again. Well done in every aspect.
"So many things to appreciate about this story"
I continue to enjoy this and these books in this series. AS a lover of books in general and storytelling in particular this is a masterful bit on design and character construction. It regular in structure and but the content is dramatic, creative and very interesting.
Wonderful book and performance, mr. May make you feel like all the characters are real
As always, May offers an excellent, personable, and believable rendering of Cherryh's words and characters.
"the 3rd book in the 3rd sequence"
This is the end of this sequence and you get a sense of what is going to come next but if you really got this far you probably will go to the end of all the sequences, so I think these reviews are just to ensure you that it continues to stay good even at this point 9 books into it this set of books has gotten even better.
"The narator brought the story to life."
Listening to this third volume first I was lost a lot of the time. The narrator was excelent. You could feel the character's fear and impotence in the face of an alien enviornment. I will definitly try the first volume to better understand the alien society. It was facinating if bewildering. Read the first volume first.
