Convergence Foreigner #18 review ´ 3 ☆ [Reading] ➻ Convergence Foreigner #18 By C.J. Cherryh – Convergence is the eighteenth book in CJ Cherryh's beloved Foreigner space opera seriesConvergence marks a new phase in the Foreigner Universe knowledge about the dangerous situation in adjacent space Convergence is the eTo arrange for the human refugees who are crowding the space station to be landed on the island since the atevi will not grant land to the human residents of their planet Bren a native of this island is now an atevi official trying to prepare the human inhabitants for the arrival of many desperate human refugees from spa. I really like these books and I was glad to visit again with the characters and become immersed in the language style However this is perhaps the weakest entry in the whole series aside from the first book which is weak for entirely different reasons It’s 90% talking That might not be so bad but most of the talking is either rehashing of previous events or even worse Bren explaining the current Situation over and over again Even that might have been tolerable if there was the usual bit of suspenseful action at the end but this absolutely just peters out The Situation is the same as at the end of the previous book the alien kyo have signed a treaty of good will and are leaving the solar system; there are 5000 people on the space station who need to be relocated to the planet as soon as possible; and the human children whom Cajeiri befriended on the station would be good candidates for future paidhi I have all that memorized because Bren explains it at length at least a dozen times He’s making a formal visit to the human island with his entire atevi entourage and it should have been fun to see their reaction to the human region and the reaction of the locals Unfortunately Jago and Banichi speak hardly a word and all Bren does is meet with various people and explain the aforementioned Situation again until you're ready to scream The humans merely nod and agree with Bren entirely unless they are small minded conservative bigots who embarrass themselves by spluttering weak arguments Cajeiri’s part of the story is only slightly interesting He visits his uncle gets assigned bodyguards and meets a distant cousin with some information about the tense political situation At one point I thought there was potential for a good gun battle or at least one hasty evacuation by bus but no such luck Cajeiri doesn’t get lost or kidnapped or even thrown off his mecheita The only nice bit is that he's gradually accepting his role as a future leader I like Cherryh’s work enough to put up with a certain amount of repetition and slow pacing but this book is a disappointment This series has been fascinating and exciting at times and I hope the next book will be much better

Convergence is the eighteenth book in CJ Cherryh's beloved Foreigner space opera seriesConvergence marks a new phase in the Foreigner Universe knowledge about the dangerous situation in adjacent space rests only with Bren Cameron the human diplomat to the alien court of the atevi four starship captains and the two chiefs. I love this series I love all of CJs books I've met CJ and enjoy reading her blog I love her writing style and the atevi and the individual characters and the tense situations resolved by cleverness and guileBut this book is clearly the weakest in the series This is a pivot point in the series and had so much potential for intrigue and synergy But it was one simple passage with the same topic discussed over and over with the same words The same people from book #1 return to the stage and they haven't changed much at all It's like an Expendables movieEven the co story with Cajeiri advanced slowly even though it set the stage for future growthI'm sure that this is just a pause in the seuence and the next entry will be as strong as the previous ones But this one was disappointing made worse by my own high hopesAnd the cover is awful

review Convergence Foreigner #18

Convergence Foreigner #18Of state both the human and the atevi who share the Convergence Foreigner ePUB #199 planet Bren is obliged to carry the just signed treaty to the human government on an island some forty miles off the shores of the atevi ruled megacontinent and without explaining the dire situation that would send the people into chaos. I have been a big fan for years and years and so looked forward to this book The back story was handled uickly and deftly in the opening chapter I liked the half about the heir although I wanted the pet problem resolved I felt the half with the main character becoming a power and setting up the next book could have been done without all the meetings detailed showing how it worked with first people instead Missed interaction by Bren with lots of favorite main characters
