Good, a little slow, didn't like narrator

Cherryh's last book and this one really should have been one book, judiciously edited. Satisfying conclusions to several problems. Not sure what the next book will be about, though. Enjoyed seeing Cajeiri's maturing thought processes and his ability to operate without Bren, Ilisidi or Tabini. Overall enjoyable.

I did not care for the narrator. I could forgive his guesses on name pronunciations (though Cajeiri surely isn't pronounced Ka-ja-REE). But he used a high falsetto for Damiri's voice that almost sounded like mocking. All the atevi from the central district were rendered with heavy accents, as though Ragi wasn't their own language. Worst, Tatiseigi sounded like a ridiculous Count Dracula impression, so bad that I could not at all take him seriously as the refined, powerful political player he is supposed to be.

Ended up reading the e-book.

Wonderful adventure. Plot is still so good. I love this series and I hope there will be more books to come. C J Cherryh is a brilliant writer. Daniel Thomas May as always narrate/perform splendidly. One of the best Sc/Fc .

Any additional comments?

This was another good book in the series. I'm looking forward to the next. The recording/voice work is great too.
