In this the felicitous ninth novel of Cherryh's Foreigner series there is once again a threat to the stability of the Atevi government. Bren Cameron, human translator to that government, is of course in the thick of things, as is the irrepressibly grumpy yet lovable grandmother of the Atevi leader, Ilisidi. Only recently returned from space (along with the Atevi leader's son, Cajeiri, who grew quite fond of humans during his sojourn) and still recovering from un-couping the coup that occurred while they were away, it isn't long before the main characters must confront those naughty easterners who continue the process of destabilizing things begun by the usurper Murini, still on the run after Tabini returns to power. From official release/information:
Book Description: 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.
