Ressenyes

Nice adventure space opera tale, told from the point of view of a Hani trader who makes first contact with a new, unknown species: a human being. Or second contact, because the human being has just escaped from the claws of the bellicose Kif, who want him for their own nefarious purposes.

A lot of intrigue, persecutions and a single space battle follows, as the appearance of a new species challenge the fragile equilibrium of a trading agreement between several different alien species.

The most interesting thing about it, apart from the appealing story, is the way Cherryh immerses us in alien cultures and ways of thinking. I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars because the writing always seemed a bit strange, probably on purpose because the story is told from an alien's point of view, but that certain clumsiness of the story flow prevented me from enjoying it unreservedly.… (més)

Cw: sexual assault

Narratively simple, psychologically complex story of found family. Super lived-in setting, really builds up some great momentum throughout.

Some of the most fascinating worldbuilding I've encountered. Bleak, human, liminal. Unputdownable. Exactly what I needed.

Man, Cherryh loves a found family. I'm not mad at it, the power of human connection as a motif is really powerful in her work. Super claustrophobic, and nice to see more of the dreaded Mallory. I might have to take a bit of a break from Cherryh so I don't burn out on her, this is the fifth book in the past two months I've read by her.
