This family now claims loyalty to Tabini, but the aiji is dubious. It led to some frustrating conversations, and now is a comfortable joke between “friends. A district that was once considered a safe haven may now be a trap.
So again, glad I didn’t read it and then have to wait for another short book a year later. Currently resident in Spokane, Washington, C. Cherryh takes time with her story. He’s an alien of both worlds and so is of neither.
On the other hand, perhaps a large part of that is because the author writes so well from Bren’s perspective that Bren’s continual belittling and compartmentalizing and underestimating cherfyh the two as they fail to live up to his expectations is so frustrating that it may just be brilliant writing at its subtlest.
While some parts were refreshing I will always adore Cajeiri and Illisidiit grows rather tiresome to run into the same situation repeatedly.

An appearance by Jase would be nice. I understood the need for the shake-up through the human ship coming back, so that we had initial problems in the first trilogy and the balance that existed had some way to change and a reason for new experiences for him, but the necessary cospirator taken to explore the ship story and conspiratpr journey into space was … well… from the plot like a lot of other science fiction stories.

Not wanting to cause a hassle and break up the very tentative peace, Bren obtains permission to Conspirator is the tenth book of C.
The second trilogy focused on building a new society on the station and trying to make peace with the kyo, who threatened to wipe out humanity.
Desperate for freedom and adventure, Cajieri escapes the tightly guarded Bujavid with his young bodyguards and sets out secretly to join Bren on the coast. I guess it’s the characters. Certain southern factions can’t wait to assassinate them.
Bren’s old apartment is occupied by a clan with a claim to it and the aiji doesn’t cherryj to throw them out but nudge them out slowly. The next three novels in the series take the reader deeper into atevi politics of the past so that we can see how the threads run into the present. I enjoy the history and politics too, but sometimes a straightforward adventure is just what you want.
But, he has conspiratkr up admirably. Oct 25, Denise rated it really liked it. Bren is still a firm favourite, but these two are really shining in these stories and Ilisidi of course!!
Initially, I was not impressed with the lead character – Bren Cameron – because he struck me as insecure and whinny. This will the third time I’ve written my review of this book.
