About the book
Just as the human Bren Cameron learned the customs of the alien atevi, who ruled the world except for an island ceded to a group of stranded human colonists, now young Cajeiri, son of an atevi leader, must struggle to understand human customs as he survives a political assassination attempt. This tenth volume in Cherryh's long-running "Foreigner" series begins a fourth trilogy that brings human-alien relations into a new generation. Her lucid storytelling conveys enough backstory to guide newcomers without boring longtime series followers. The characters are well drawn, and Cherryh's depiction of both human and alien cultures is riveting. Expect fan demand. Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

About the author
Carolyn Janice Cherry (born September 1, 1942), better known by the pen name C. J. Cherryh, is an American writer of speculative fiction. She has written more than 80 books since the mid-1970s, including the Hugo Award-winning novels Downbelow Station (1981) and Cyteen (1988), both set in her AllianceUnion universe. She is known for "world building", depicting fictional realms with great realism supported by vast research in history, language, psychology, and archeology.
Cherryh (pronounced "Cherry") appended a silent "h" to her real name because her first editor, Donald A. Wollheim, felt that "Cherry" sounded too much like a romance writer. She used only her initials, C.J., to disguise that she was female at a time when the majority of science fiction authors were male.
The author has an asteroid, 77185 Cherryh, named after her. Referring to this honor, the asteroid's discoverers wrote of Cherryh: "She has challenged us to be worthy of the stars by imagining how mankind might grow to live among them."
